Quality assurance check by Forest River?

Does Forest River check their units for leaks prior to leaving the floor as a part of a final quality assurance check ? It seems like there is a manufacturer out there that does (maybe Heartland, but can't remember for sure!) Anyone know what their quality assurance check consists of once the camper if built and before it is sent off to the dealer?

I wondered the same thing. When we picked up ours, there has been no leaks so far, but our antenna would raise, but would not turn. come to find out, they put putty right up against the arm, and it was stuck. FR missed it, My dealer missed it, and I should have checked better when I did my walk through. It was a easy fix, but made me wonder.

I'm not aware of Forest River's QC policy. I worked for Winnebago and the units were all water tested for exterior leaks and inside plumbing leaks before they left the floor. I would assume the same is true for Forest River.
