Problem after Problem

Ok...So I've had my WA2916 for maybe 3 months now and have acquired a somewhat lengthy (lengthy for me may not be lengthy for others) list of probelms that keep popping up. Just venting my frustruation here after paying a decent amount of money for this Forest River toyhauler which seems to definitely lack a QC Department.

1. Toilet base leaking onto floor. Tightened connection and seems to not leak anymore..............

2. When the ramp door is closed I can see light around the roadside top radius edge.

3. Multiple drawer guides broken and flinging open during transit...Command Strips are my best friend till I take it in to have them fixed.

4. Kitchen-to-bedroom door opens and smacks around during transit.

5. Kitchen drain leaked all over the floor. (My model has a kitchen slide and during my own investigation i found the flexible drain line that is suppossed to clamp to the p-trap totally disconnected)

6. One of my outside speakers is really fuzzy

7. Kitchen window night shade does not stay up

8. Propane does not work when valve is turned to roadside bottle.

9. Kitchen island left indentation on floor from scraping when slide is in

10. Couch/Roadside window will not slide open

11. TV does not show picture for DVD player anymore (Had a movie on for my daughter, held the switch to pull the awning out and when the awning reached its maximum (stopped and kind of bumps) the TV turned to "No Signal" while still in AV mode.

One last rant....will the left over slivers of material and debris from construction of this things EVER stop coming out of the cracks and crevices??? Weve taken this rig out about 6-7 times and i still seem to collect a dust pan full of metal shavings, wood shavings, other misc. debris, and screws that falls out from everywhere..........

I just didn't know if everyone experiences this garbage or if it's my luck...
My dealer is somewhat close and I really don't have time to fix it myself otherwise I would, just want to take advantage of my warranty too while it still exists...thanks MUD

I hope your dealer is better than mine at fixing thing. I've had quit a list myself and today another one fixing my generator with 7 hrs on it. Found the fuel line smashed closed in 2 places along the fuel line holders that are suppose to protect the fuel lines. I can fix anything being a mechanical, electrical person but after 35 yrs of fixing designing stuff I'm tired of it. No one takes pride in their work it seems and $65 to $70k it still doesn't matter no pride from producers of products. Makes me wonder what people do that can't fix there products their selves . They don't they are at the mercy of their incompetent dealer which is sad for the RV industry.

I like my toy hauler but only because I've fixed it like it was suppose to be off the assembly line. I hope my bugs are worked out of it but I'm sure this weekend after boondocking I'll find more but this time I'll have power from my genny to make coffee and watch one of the 3 TV's to see the news. Thanks to me for another repair I made. LOL

I definitely second that. I find most everyone to be like that...I just recently purchased a Jeep Grand Cherokee and was battling the dealer to fix a FUEL LEAK, and a couple other things...got the run around and told it was fixed twice. Come to find out they didnt touch the damn thing after sitting on their lot for almost 2 weeks, climbed the chain of command and literally got hung up on by their GM.........

I fix most stuff myself but lately just cant find the time to, and unfortuantely, will be forced to lean on the dealer and Forest Riverfor this one. Are the Amish the only ones who build put quality craftsmanship into their products now adays?
