My name is Jay and am new to the forum. Thought I would say "HEY"!
We are the owner of a new 2016 Coachmen Freedom Express Liberty Edition 322RLDS. We picked it up in June of this year and have been camping locally around mid Michigan as well at my brothers property up north to get used to this new rig.
Our first 4 months with this trailer have been an "adventure" all by itself and I am not even counting the areas we have camped so far. Not meaning to vent here, but was wondering if others incur this type of "excitement" with their new trailers.
In September, we dropped our brand new trailer back off to the dealership with a list of over 2 dozen "issues" that needed to be addressed under warranty. AC that never gets cold, storage door, frame and all, fell off the dinette, large tear in the back of the hide a bed sofa as well as a couple other holes in the back of the cushions, the power awning broke the second time we used it and a black tank valve that refused to seal after the first few uses were just a few of the "joys" we have encountered since owning this trailer. Oh, and I would be remiss if I left this out. The screw connector on the water line to the toilet split and started spraying water all over the bathroom the second night we stayed in it and two days after that, the valve under the bathroom sink literally exploded the first time I used the black tank flush valve on the trailer. Both times we had water running down the hallway before we noticed anything wrong. There are more little goodies I could mention but that should give you a general idea of our "adventures" so far.
We are getting it back tomorrow from the dealership (after 5 weeks of them working on it) and are leaving for Florida in a few days for our first extended trip. I can't wait to see what else this new trailer has in store for us!
