Is This List of Repairs Needed on Delivery Normal?

Hi All:

There was so much wrong with my RV when I picked it up. I spent an hour inspecting it and writing up a tremendous "WE OWE" list with the dealer, and t hen found even more on our first trip. I know nothing is perfect, and I'm not a complainer, but does this seem ridiculous? My list is below.

Thanks all,

Bill

Date of Delivery 7/17/15
  1. Glue stains on ceiling throughout the RV
  2. Privacy curtain in bunk area - broken track clips
  3. Privacy curtain in bunk area - missing curtain holder on left side.
  4. Pantry Door - Deep gouge and a chip. Needs replacement
  5. Doorjam in bathroom area - nail holes visible in fabric
  6. Folding table in rear storage area - missing
  7. Trim above stove - insecure and not installed properly
  8. Instructional Stickers - hanging off. We removed them.
  9. Electrical outlet behind main TV in bunk area - does not work
  10. Microwave and AC blow circuit breaker
  11. Televisions - wired incorrectly. King Jack supplies signal to main TV though white wall plate. Cable supplies signal only through bottom terminal on brown plate. No cable possible in bedroom or outside TV.
  12. Refrigerator - latch does not catch and door can swing open.
  13. Exterior cable jack - cover tie worn and came off when removed to connect cable at campground.
  14. Pocket door - striker plate on door jam is not aligned with door hook.
  15. Screen door - very hard to close. Alignment was adjusted and found the door to be bowed outward.

Pretty typical except maybe for 9, and 11. Think of it as a new house but on wheels. A punch list this size would be small for a new house. I had as many issues including a significant plumbing error that I just fixed myself

Our list was only about 10 items long. 4 of yours repeat on my list. We are living with the little stuff for now and will take it in during the off season.

I'm cool with finding out a few things, that aren't visible, pop up after delivery. But the stuff that any sober person with eyes can see is what pisses me off. Stains on the ceiling? Gouges in a cabinet door? That shouldn't happen. A customer should never see that.

"Televisions - wired incorrectly. King Jack supplies signal to main TV though white wall plate. Cable supplies signal only through bottom terminal on brown plate. No cable possible in bedroom or outside TV"

That coax system is all wired together. Make sure booster is off to get cable. King jack provides signal to all tv's on air. Must scan for channels.

Bottom terminal of brown plate is the input from park cable. Leave that in for cable, booster off. If you search on here I have posted sat wiring schematic.

I'm not sure what you mean when you say all are wired together, and then continue with brown Jack from outside cable.

Yes. It's all one cable (with splitters). Just make sure the antenna booster is powered off.

TV needs to be on cable for input and scan for channels.

Alright, I understand what you're saying. I think of myself as pretty tech saavy. But the main TV came connected to the booster plate, and prior to switching to the brown plate I scanned on Air, and Cable with booster on and off. I even tried all different cable type setting on the TV. None worked. I did the same for the bedroom TV. I didn't test the outside TV yet. So I guess I have two questions:

1. Why is there no signal from exterior jack to booster plate?

2. If there should be a signal to the booster plate, what is the purpose of having the brown triple terminal plate?

I appreciate the time Bob,

Bill
