I was wondering if anyone else has had this experience. We brought our new 08 Rockwood 8315SS home Saturday before last. I wasn't smart enough to crawl around under the thing on the dealers lot, but I did when I got home. Most of the metal - galvanized screws, bolts, nuts, stab jacks, including the black pipe for the gas line look they're in a fairly advanced state of corrosion. The gas line is just surface rust, and I know metal gets rusty over time, but for a brand new unit (manufactured Jan 08) that had only been on the dealers lot for about 3-1/2 months, it looks pretty bad. My suspicion is it either got in high water somewhere (can't find any sign of water on the inside) or ran down some icy, salty roads during delivery to the dealers lot.
So, my questions are for all you experts out there, is this normal, to some degree? Should I make a big deal out it at with the dealer? What about my brake assemblies? The thing brakes perfectly, but I haven'l pulled a wheel off to see what's inside? I can shoot slide lube or WD40 on top of everything to slow it down, but I don't know if I should be worrying or not.
I haven't taken pix yet, I'll probably do that when I get home and try and post them later.
Thanks in advance
