I'm confident they will make things right.

The fridge doors do open when traveling down the road. I installed children latches at the top of the doors at the opening end of the doors. We have not a problem with this since I have done this. I got the latches at Walmart. The slides are out of adjustment. We had our delivery dealership adjust them and made them worse. They adjusted them in the wrong direction. I know that you are frustrated. But we all to get the bugs worked out. You will love your coach. Primetime really stands behind their products. Also Rodger is good people to. Good luck.

I hope you get all your issues sorted out.
Unfortunately mine and others experience with Primetime and Roger Stickel has been that if they can find a way to get out of their warranty obligations, they will take it.
Or at least they will use stall tactics.
Hopefully your dealer makes them fix their poor workmanship in a timely manner.

I have a 2014 3600 and have no had any major issues not even evidence of frame issues. Most of the items I did have to where taken care of during PDI and accepting the unit. Not sure how detailed of a walk through your dealer did, but it sounds like not much of one before you took posession.

But if you just got the unit 2 weeks ago, how did you miss some of this before you drove off the lot? I know its winter and cold, but I would not have take delivery without going over the entire unit.

That being said, my experience with the warentee work has been great. Nothing has been rejected on me, and I have not had to spend any of my own money on repairs. After a season of use I started to have some of the bottom slide wrapping show wear and the dealer did a great job adressing it for the long term.

It is also important to have the unit level before opening the big slides

Man after reading some of these post, I'm having second thoughts on buying a Sanibel now. I thought Sanibel's were built to a better level than I'm hearing. Better start researching other manufacture now.

It disturbs me how on this forum, some people blame the OP for problems existing on his unit. Whether he missed them on PDI, or they weren't readily apparent, is immaterial. The guy wanted insight and help, not comments like "how did you miss this?" I know I won't change things or people, but this should be a helpful forum. Good luck on getting your problems fixed!

It's a great unit once you go over eveything, so far nothing major. I meet someone in the wisconsin dells and suggested removing the wall in the basement by the stairs to access your water heater and pump. When I did the construction debris I found was shocking.
