Sadly it is all too common these days and it is not limited to forest river as I see these same issues popping up on other owners forums and rv.net. Mine is going back to the factory as soon as I winterize it. Your list is actually shorter than mine and I have some more major issues on mine. We already fixed the hole in the propane line from the slide pinching a poorly routed line to my fridge. Every one of my 4 slides has had a major issue. The list goes on. My dealership has been great and is only an hour away but we do fix simple Things ourselves (ie replaced propane line with the part sent to us). Gary from forest river has been great too. No questions asked, send it back for them to fix. Now hopefully we get it back in time for the spring season. I wish you luck with yours.

Everyone that buys a new trailer, I can't say this enough. Camp in your driveway for a weekend BEFORE taking the trailer on an actual camping trip. This way you will you find all the issues right away and can take it back to the dealer for an immediate fix. Thank goodness only a few minor issues with my 2014 WA2715.

You may just have a bad unit.

Welcome to the club. The warranty on my 2014 SS1913 just ended last week. During the first year of ownership, I was able to log only 20 nights camping, as the trailer spent 46% of it's first year at the dealer having warranty work performed. I have 14 or 15 work orders in the binder so far. Among the many issues encountered, I had the light leak issue with the ramp door. They tried to fix it on 3 different visits. In the end, all they did was bend the flange at the bottom of the door, then tell me that's how it came from the factory and I had never noticed. It's still not fixed, and now I have light from the bottom edge too!

This things are hand-built, so some mistakes are bound to happen. Add that to the apparently missing factory QC process and you get a customer satisfaction process that seems to land squarely on the dealers and their warranty service offerings. Sadly, it seems that my dealer was too busy to care that I was satisfied with my purchase after I drove off their lot. I've been looking forward to my warranty running out so that I can fix things that they could never seem to get right.

Next time, maybe I'll save the headache and buy a used unit that someone else has already QC'd.

(Sorry for the rant - but I DO feel much better now!)

I was afraid i would be screwed on the ramp door issue....sigh......it makes me wonder what people do when this sort of stuff happens to their $200K+ Diesel Pusher Motorhomes??? Better believe if i spent hundreds of thousands of dollars id be driving that moho through the front of their building....

You know - whenever I'm at my dealer (which, is pretty often) I see the service department's pickup lane stacked with those 200K+ pushers. Make's me wonder if the priority of the service is correlated to the amount spent. :/

There's no doubt in my mind the price paid does correlate with the way your treated but I still wonder if these high dollar rigs lack a QC dept and have just as many problems as we do to begin with?....
