I could have build another trailer with all the wood and screws I found behind my cabinets and drawers... Two years later and stuff is still coming out from under places!

Had a problem with that in our Cardinal plus behind the cabinets it looked like they just used a claw hammer to make a hole when they needed one. Have not found that with the Georgetown. It appears they took a little more time and tried to do thing right with the motorhome.

My wife and I said that when the Styrofoam beads stop coming out of places, it will be time to get a new trailer. In spring it will be the start of our 4th season, might be a long wait.

I can't figure out where all of the screws keep coming from. I find them in the bed, next to the RV and there was even one in the shower! Where do they come from?

The sawdust over the bed only went away after I used a shop vac in the cabinets and smacked it at the same time. I opened some panels and found the pieces from the cutouts hidden away in each compartment. I think this is standard practice for most
RV manufacturers.

I removed all the overhead lights, ceiling vent trim pieces and A/C ducts then used cold weather tape (silver residential duct tape) to seal all gaps where the sawdust and metal shavings were dropping from. Don't forget the skylight in the shower.

This is a very normal, it is thinhs like this that i feel more people NEED to go to the factory (any factory) and really see how all these things are built!

I feel a number of questions and issue that to me seem very simple to me would them not be such a big deal to others.

Sorry for making it sound this way but with so many newbies coming on board with camping/ campers that have never owned or spent a good amount of time doing this type of living and have questions and issues that are not really a big deal in the big picture of things.

Again sorry if i seem mad or insulting (not my intention) but in the end Happy Camping
