Not sure anyone will ever post an allowable snow depth. All snow is not created equal.

I'm not surprised that allowable snow load is not published. Agreed that all snow is not equal, but building codes state design snow depths. I suppose they figure the worst case, and when you have the dry fluffy stuff you just have more margin.

Here in upstate South Carolina (elevation 1000') the code depth is 24 inches! The record is 14 inches.

I second that. It would be great to have a diagram all valves, drains, other junctions mechanical and electrical

Wiring / Plumbing Diagrams

Wow, Yes. That would be amazing to have.

3050S with exterior "cracks" in the top corners!!

I'm not wanting to cross post, but here is a link to another post regarding cracks in the upper read corners of our brand new ( < 1200 kms) SS 3050S.

Anyone else seen this?

Our issue is not cracks but a creaking sound behind the drivers seat when moving..Mine is mostly when going slow and over a slight bump.

We've not heard any creaking yet but we have less the 1200kms on the unit.

These cracks are on the dark brown painted upper corners and standout like crazy. They're very upsetting given the unit hasn't really rolled.

Need pictures. I've seen some hairline cracks that ended up being a paint flaw (dried too quickly or at too high heat, can't remember). Without pics, can't really say.

That's just sealant that was painted over. Normally we paint then Use clear over that. Some areas I think they have to seal, but will clean it up before painting.

Certainly not what you want, but it's not structural or anything like that. Document and let the dealer know.
