2016 Silverback 31RK

Picked our camper up the end of June, first time out one of the windows came loose from the hinge, luckily we were at the campground. Don't understand why the need 2 emergency windows right next to each other on the opposite side of the door, still waiting for new window to come in, seems strange that we have to wait this long.The duct tape holding window in place has to keep being replaced, doesn't make cedar creek or dealer look good at campgrounds with tape holding a window on. Another thing not happy with is the vent from one of the tanks that comes out the roof is next to the fresh air vent in the bathroom, so if we don't have the fan running we get smells in through the vent . And why did they go away with the ceiling fans, this will be the last camper we order without seeing first the brochure that we were showed was of the 2015 models and that they were the same but i am sure that the 15's had the ceiling fan, don't like the fact that we can't get to the fridge without opening the slides or climbing over chairs. Just a note for all to see the camper in real time and not just from brochures you can miss so many things like we did.

No..the 2015's didn't have ceiling fans either. We looked at ours on the lot and didn't realize it didn't have a ceiling fan till we were home sitting in it..lol lol..guess I just assumed it would have one lol... And I think the majority of new trailers out there you can't get to your frig without opening a slide.

we have the 2015 31RK and our's has the ceiling fan and it is something I might always require if we ever get another 5th. Getting service support from dealer is terrible here, but we have had good response from Forest River service support when we talked to them. They were very quick to respond to our needs.

When we bring in our slides, I move the dinette chair closes to the counter and put it in the middle between sofa/recliner chair, so that I can wiggle in between to get to the fridge when we are traveling and stop to eat at rest stop.

good luck with getting it fixed.

Why not push the rocker and open it a little?

The ceiling fan must be part of an option package. My 2015 29IK has the ceiling fan. Purchased off the lot.

Funny thing, our dealer said the fan was not an option of the Silverbacks, only on the Cedar Creeks. He also told us some other things that turned out to be "untrue". We sure miss a fan.

I have a 2016 31RK Silverback. Ceiling fan was not an option, would love to add one. No issue with vent/smell you mentioned.

Some minor issues but very happy with purchase. Biggest issues to date: doors on cabinets opening in transit, watch carefully before you open slides, auto leveler is problematic (Lippert is like a government lowest bidder), residential fridge is GREAT after I added two golf car batteries to run the inverter while we were underway. Hardly ever use propane because fireplace space heater and electric hot water heater option and res fridge mean propane is for cooking only. Could have gotten by with a single tank.

Love the king bed upgrade and Combo W/D installed in the forward closet. I also added a 120v LED light above the entertainment cabinet ( from Costco) just plugs in behind tv and routed wires up through small holes drilled in cabinet came with a remote control. Replaced light fixture over sink with a $40 LED fixture from CW for much more light for meal prep. Well received by DW. Threw 'Trump' bedspread and faux pillows away. Obviously that pimp wouldn't sleep with that polyester stuff either but he would put his name on it. I like a good down pillow and comforter not plastic.

Have a 2014 31RK. Yes you have to watch the doors opening when moving. Ripped a bottom door under the sink off Sunday when opening slide out. We do have a ceiling fan. Have had many problems with everything but finally right now everything works.
