I bought a 2015 377XL last Sept. Drove it fm Canada last Dec to Florida, I now got 4000 miles on it but half of those miles have been going back and forth to dealers around Orlando to get things fixed. Roof cracked, front right spring let go and in the process cracked my fender. ( Ford blaming FR and FR blaming Ford and here I am in the middle.)AC in the bed room went dead, can't empty my grey water I think they let the hole drop in the bottom of the tank therefore now blocking the pipe. The grout for the tiles is almost all gone, loose tiles, shower doors leaked, slide rubbed on the tiles going in and out an made a big gouge. Steering wheel mis-aligned, 2 drawers in the kitchen falling apart and lots more of little things. Well guess what When I get back I'll take the hit $ wise and get rid of it and stay has far as possible from any FR product. I don't even want to be parked beside An FR product, I am starting to have allergic reaction to FR products I Think.

Borda did you buy yours at RV Canada? I got a month and a half to go here down south. So we will be doing lots of thinking till we get back home. We might just get out of the lifestyle and by a little chalet here in Florida.

I think you got it right fix the small crap yourself
1. you will know its done and done right
2. you will have the satisfaction of doing
3 no dealer frustration

altho we have had several items taken care of under warranty
I have also taken care of many my self
actually no difference than our stick and brick a few things we should have had our builder correct it was easier to do ourselves

With the exception of a leaking black water tank flush all of our problems have been cosmetic and nothing that stopped a planned trip. FR approved all items on three different trips to the dealer including installing Kwikee steps. Biggest problem was getting the dealer to do the work when it was promised.

This can be caused by "gassing" from the batteries under the steps. The problem went away when I switched to sealed deep cycle batteries.

The lp alarms are very sensitive and mine keep going off and I had to bypass it until I was able to find a good replacement. Was easy to bypass the unit itself and keep the inline valve open so you still use the propane for heat and such. I replaced my batteries and did everything to stop the false alarms. Please no one jump on me because of a safety thing for bypassing the alarm.

not only will I not YELL
what I did was put an off/on switch with a pilot indicator
installed it on my control monitor panel
now when fueling or storing I just turn the alarm off ,that closes the in line solenoid and I am safe and sure my propane is OFF
