So all companies are bad because they want to maximize profits for shareholders. Government regulations in general are a PITA to everyone.

Friendly site team reminder as we had to do a little clean up here:

General discussions of politics, general government policies, weaponry, gun rights and religion are not allowed in ANY areas of the forum. Discussions about current or pending legislation or regulations, weapons and religion that directly pertain to RVing are acceptable but will be closed or removed if they wander off topic or become disruptive.

Please keep this topic on the subject of Forest River facing fines. Thank You

Now, back to your regularly scheduled program.

Your jumping to unwarranted conclusions. The only thing I gleaned from the article is FR is being sued for failure to provide Big Brother their required paperwork. Any IT programmer can get a program going in less than a week. Doesn't mean it works the way the user intended.

Agreed but FR has been in business a long time. They know the regs and should have had a system in place to 'Trust but Verify' that protocol was being adhered to. Dumping the problem on software is a catch-all and an easy way for some meathead to wiggle out. In other words get the damn reporting done on time else your azz is out the door.
