Good luck in getting your drive line vibration repaired. We have a 2017 3010DS that was at the dealer for seven of the first twelve months we owned it before they got it fixed correctly and that happened at the Ford dealer, not the rv dealer. The drive line was not built correctly when the chassis was extended.

Did FR confirm when warranty actually starts? Is it once it is sold to the customer? Or when it arrives at the dealership?

Hello
Finally received a call from the dealer where we purchased it, The person who called had already submitted the correct date to Ford Motor Company before he had even called me. It should be in Fords system on Monday. The Warranty start date is the day you take possession of your (new) Motorhome.

Also wanted to thank Josh Cavette as he had also reached out to me on this matter.

Can I ask what wasn't built right? I was just under mine and saw that the rear driveshaft support looked a little iffy. The original mount for the support was too high so the used a piece of channel iron to extend it down. That's not too bad but it looks like they should have extended it further than they did. Right after the last support, the drive shaft takes a steep drop to the differential. The rest of the three piece shaft is fairly straight. This is not a warranty claim since mine is a dinosaur. (2003 3150 sunseeker) I'm having issues with a howl around 65 mph and it seems to be from the driveline.

Drive line angle was good. The shaft had to be rebalanced. Looks like it might have thrown one of the balance weights off. Taking it out this weekend, We will see how it is.

The supports were fine but the extended piece was not correctly attached in a straight line matching the other u-joints. Once that was corrected the vibration and howl were gone.

Good to know about this issue. We haven't had any issue with our 2017 Sunseeker 3010DS.
