#3 - screws in the bottom of the fridge - I havent found those in the fridge but probably was left there from when the camper was put together cause I have found screw's in the water heater area and under the table seat ends on my unit during delivery.

#4 is the door actually warped or just not sitting flat - could just need a hinge adjustment - better to let them break the hinge then you since it is under warranty

#5 tells me it is the campsite not the trailer if it triped with the old trailer and new trailer.

ok on the door - guess a new door is in store for you

Just means it is back feeding into the trailer and blowing your breaker instead of the one at the post.

To test the theory then - take the camper to another site and see if it trips there - sounds to me there is a power issue with the 1st site - reason why I say that is cause it cant be coincidental that both campers blow breakers on the same site.

Sorry to hear about your problems, but they do sound like typical new trailer issues.
I agree with sherdep about the screws. I have found them lying around in new trailers before.
Too bad about the cabinet door. My previous trailer had the same issue.
The keyless entry is a great idea that I really like. Unfortunately, quite a few of us are having problems with it.
My last trailer also had a problem with the breaker tripping. Same campground, same trailer, sometimes it would, sometimes it wouldn't. I blamed it on the campground. So far my 303 RKS hasn't had that problem at that same campground. The larger AC may draw just enough to make the breaker trip whereas your previous trailer with the smaller AC didn't. I have read where people say they have to shut down the water heater to run the microwave and so forth, so it's not an uncommon problem.
I'm sure PT will help solve your problems. Hang in there and good luck.

I bet the issue is because you are pulling more with the bigger A/C unit and most likely something else is on like the water heater or converter is drawing more then the old one since it probably is a larger trailer.
just throwing that out there

Think I found where the crew came from....look at your frezer door and see if there two screws on the bottom hedge? if so mine is missing one...looks to be broken off!!

Just what I was thinking but some people in the park say the difference between the 13k/15k is not that much....maybe a weak breaker?? You know new is not always good
