The top is always slanted. The upper rack is roughly 1 1/4" out of parallel with the lower rack. Here is a picture of another one with the upper rack where it should be. The difference between the two is clear. compare the rack to the black termination bar.

I spent 3 hours there. I didn't have any water or power other than a power pack but I have inspected it well and there are lots of good things. Fiberglass is perfect, tents and bunks are good, interior cabinetry good. When I found the slide out of whack and some raw luan edges in the well well I canceled the PDI and turnover and down this road we went. I sent them a punch list with pictures and for good measure I threw everything I could find on it. If they are going to keep it and work on it, well you can go over everything. It printed out to 24 pages, mostly pictures. About 20 items. I have 19 pages of warranty approvals from Rockwood here they sent me 3 weeks ago, that's when the parts were ordered.

No I have not signed for it yet, all they have is the $1000 deposit I placed when they ordered it.

I'm pretty sure that the tech who has been dealing with it is better than the people that built it. I really have nothing to lose letting them work on it but time.
Do not accept that. This is the time to walk away and let the dealer fight the manufacturer. Contract law, you have not excepted it and are not obligated. (just my un advised legal guess).


Just saw your second photo, Your first picture was extreme?

Sorry about my spelling. the word I wanted was "accepted" not "excepted". The words do apply in both cases for the OP. Sorry, just being silly.

Well you talked me into it. Actually I have been wrestling with it for a few weeks. I just fired an email to the dealer and said I am not accepting ( or excepting) that particular unit.

They can either order me another or refund my deposit and we'll call it over.

Its in his court now.

The first picture was my unit, or what was my unit, the second a different unit at a different dealer. It is extreme. And totally wrong as confirmed this morning by an LCI tech rep.

Quality vs. Quanity

Too many product lines built on the same production line? Which product is supposed to be higher quality (sounds like both made equally sloppy). Crummy dealer receiving inspection (most dealers don't or don't care) so it's buyer beware or repair. To quote a RV salesperson "Not everybody is perfect and we will correct discrepancies (big word) as you find them.", now doesn't that make you fel warm and comfy. Good Luck, by the way, looks like one end of the gear isn't fastened.
