Looks normal.... but if it's in warranty, make 'em fix it all.

The list I had was double what yours is. I fixed a lot of the small stuff but had dealer do things like slides out of adjustment, window replacement and still dealing with other things almost a year later.
Don't back down especially on the large items. If you are ok with fixing the small stuff then by all means do it.
I don't care what others think but when you put out the kind of money for these units and you have to put up with the crap workmanship it really is a shame. I guess if we keep buying them then they will keep doing it.

Alright, well now I don't feel that the only guy that got screwed. It's just bad business. The repairs are fairly minor, and they're going to have fix them anyway. Why not make a good first impression instead of sending a customer into the world with a bad first impression and a bad taste in their mouth.

I think the list is typical, except the outlet not working. We were fortunate as there was nothing wrong with our unit when we picked it up and have not experienced any issues to date. (knock knock on wood). I was displeased with a number of installed items that I felt should have been options that should have been offered or delete for end user upgrade.

I know you can't go back now, but it is always best to not accept the unit at PDI, as they may not correct all the issues in a timely manner. Hopefully they will and to your satisfaction.

best of luck,

New Coach Problems

I read about problems with new coaches, I guess I have been lucky, but I have been impressed with construction of my new 2015 3050s. I did find coax at front reversed and a bad coax connection. I had a small water leak under the bed due to not properly tightened connection. I have not been back to dealer. The Ford alignment was off so I had it realigned and Forest River paid me back. I have friends with Montanas, Mobile Suits, Landmarks that have been terrible.

Over all to this point, I am pleased with construction.

I purchased a 2014 2650 at end of year at a good price, yet there were at least forty issues some minor some a bit more. One prevailing issue is FR house batteries, can't find the specs and they keep losing charge in minutes down to 10.5v. Dealer will fix since FR won't replace after unit on the lot for three months. Does any one have specs on house batt?

Now that's a good one also. FR should fix it was still a new camper and was sold to you as new. Warranty starts from date of purchase. You don't buy a left over auto and get warranty period subtracted for month on lot. Sound like dealer fell down on ya or did you fail to tell us the rest of the story. Later RJD

Your list is about the same length as mine (I took delivery in May). Not the same exact items but some are...

Like you, I just don't know how some of this stuff gets missed both at FR and then at the dealer. I just wrote my dealer's service manager wondering how the fellow who did my demo could have not noticed or let certain items slide and he replied, "...I could speculate all day on why these issues were not taken care of but none of that would change the fact that it was not." (!)

While I might somewhat agree with him that nitpicking back and forth is counter productive, the fact is he should care that his employee's either can't do their jobs properly or worse yet, just don't care. It seems obvious that it would be in everyone's best interest if he put the customer first and provided good competent service and a pleasant quality experience for the customer.

But what do I know...?

My dealer has taken care of my issues with the exception of the batt. This seems to get fixed then not. Would like to trade up to a pair of trojans, any experience out there for getting a dealer to trade up at half cost? LOL I bet. Thanks
