X2 - however some will continue to defend/condone this. If this kind of practice is so visible from the outside,then you can only imagine what's not visible. Well maybe you can see by seeing some photos people have posted here showing things wrong.

As far as the missed offset of the hole - how many people would be upset if the new car they brought had the gasoline filler door offset- same thing.

Or better yet - have your dealer drill the hole. They're used to correcting the factory screw-ups.

Don't do anything. The brake light is about the same distance from the top of the plate and slightly behind it. I have never driven at night.

I have never understood the poor Quality control in the manufacturing of trailers. I had Sat cables not connected inside and an extra cable running in the ceiling that has no place to terminate.

My maiden voyage with a class c Forester was interesting. First the Big Foot leveler broke away from the frame, I later found a recall on line and they fixed the problem by bolting a bar from side to side to stop the inward pressure and breaking the weld. Same day when I connected the city water supply to the camper my bedroom was flooded, the hose clamp on the connector inside was never tightened.

This is so obvious a mistake that almost anyone with a pulse would spot it - especially the so called FR QC people.

This latest thread regarding FR quality (or lack there of) continues to amaze me and some of the people who continue to either ignore it condone it.

Yes I know some will say it's not just a FR problem,but this is a FR forum and deals mostly with FR products.
AMEN to that!!!!!!
