Here it is!
After a lengthy but excellent PDI, I got behind the wheel for the first time (we never had a chance to test drive it!) and drove the 20+ miles home no problem. I was white knuckling it at first but relaxed after a semi went by me on the other side, on top of a high bridge and I survived
I am so impressed with the fit and finish of this unit. There were only a few minor problems, and they really had nothing to do with Forest River. The little knob over the A-B-All speaker switch was stripped and will be replaced but can still be turned by hand. The radio is way wonky (does not like to go to the 'Home' screen, will not sync with my phone's blue tooth, and a few other details, so will be swapped out. Dealer threw in an extra Fantastic Fan, which we wanted in the bathroom but was installed in the kitchen area, so they will install another no charge. So we will have THREE fantastic fans in our little house!
Here is my question. We have the Solera with the murphy bed. When the bed is up ie, a 'wall' behind the recliners, there are two photos.
Take a closer look!
One of the photos has slipped down in the frame. Sound like an easy fix? Several techs looked at it, and there is NO way to get to these photos! It was finally decided that the picture frames were screwed to the front from the back, before the final 'back' piece of plywood was attached, therefore 'sandwiching' in the screws. I will either just tape my own pictures right over both of them, or use an exacto blade to slice the very bottom edge - which is thankfully plastic and NOT glass - and pull the photos out from the bottom. And not to hurt anyone's feelings, but the pictures are awful LOL! They look like scary dead trees along a driveway to someplace haunted.
If anyone has any better idea of how to tackle this please let me know. I am so happy that so far, this is my biggest issue!
We have an electrician coming over today to put in a new outlet for it in the garage. The tech stressed many times, to NOT run the air if we have to use the adapter on the plug, so that is being taken care of. We did run the air on the genny and it worked great.
Thanks again to Forest River, and our dealer RVDirect Buffalo. We are very satisfied customers and look forward to many happy years with our Solera.
