So true, but then lots of other things in my 2012 A124 had me wondering why, Forest River, why! I can only guess they have an upper management like the company I work for that cares more for increased profits (and bonuses), regardless of customer satisfaction - seems to have become the norm in North American corporations. Have you checked how the panels are screwed and glued? Looks like someone was in a hurry - I've got plenty of stripped screw holes, crooked, missing, lose, glue and silicon all over the place - hope she lasts. The furnace circuit board died after 3 hours of heat (and it is still randomly failing with the new board), the 12V freezer wire wasn't fastened well and came apart (that took 300$+ of warranty repair, not smart), and other small stuff I forget. You simply cannot use the shower with the water filter they provide as the flow is too low causing the pump to surge continuously. I had to remove it. The hot water tank drain plug was of an odd size and virtually impossible to remove (it was very tight and delicate hardware in the way of your wrench). I ground the sides down to fit a good ratchet socket, case closed.
Another little improvement to the shower is to use powerful rare earth magnets that hold through the shower curtain onto glued metal plates on the sink cabinet, that way the curtain doesn't balloon onto your body when you shower, a rather unpleasant affair.
Still, I like her (the A124), can't wait to use her again - Canadian winters are so long.
