I will say this, last years CC36 ckts didn't have outlets by the bed but this years does. My DH hates that the toilet paper roll is behind the toilet.
We spent today going through all the warranty cards and manufactures books. Our first time sitting at the table. We loved it.
There was no book for the hot water heater though. The Surburban furnace warranty card wanted the serial number. Good luck finding that! We took the panel off and there is a sticker on top of it but you can't read it. We even tried taking pictures of the sticker.
But boy did we enjoy just hanging out in it!

We have a 2014, 36CKTS. We love our rig. Here's three areas you should look at NOW!
1. Do NOT use the under bed storage for much more than 20 lbs of stuff - if that. The wood flooring is stapled from the bottom! It will fall through - ours did.
2. Add screws to the inside, front of the FRONT facing basement flooring.
3. Add screws to the undersides of the LOWER fender areas, from the front back, about 15'. You should add fender washers - the metal pulls away.
Get the vac, clean out around the TV set, above all slides, furnace area. You'll have sawdust from now till the next coming, regardless.
There are lots of little things I've learned about ours that I'd be happy to share with you. Just ask.
Oh, you did get four batteries right? That is, if you have the residential fridge.

Agree on the toilet paper holder - we had one of these from the previous camper and carried it over....

Yes, we did get 4 batteries. I mentioned the bed issues to my DH. He's adding it to the list.
I did notice a lot of sawdust. Good thing I love to vacuum.

Congrats on finally picking her up! The more you look the more "small" stuff you will find....but that is what it is in the RV industry.

We are enjoying ours right now. We had all the kids and grands here for two days and nothing broke except for one of those plastic holders for the bottom of the window curtains.

It rained Thursday thru Sat but it was beautiful today, and now that everyone is gone we have quite time again !

We hope you enjoy yours as much as we do ours

I must have the only dealer who cleaned up almost all of the saw dust in our rig before we took delivery.

Start looking in small areas. You'll find sawdust! Look in the AC vents, TV area, furnace and basements.

I've been in all of those areas extensively... and there was very little sawdust to be found. We've had other campers and know all about the sawdust. This dealer truly did an excellent job of prepping our trailer.

Nothing my husband can't take care of but that's not the point. Was I disappointed, no because this forum prepared me.
I also found out you should be careful what you complain about. There were several small chips in the wood finishes. I pointed them out and the PDI guy used a wood marker that was too dark.
So other then the window seals that need to be replaced we will fix the rest.

What I was disappointed in was that they couldn't spend ten more dollars and cover both sides of the couch cushions so you could turn them over. The tv isn't a Smart tv and the DVD player is not blue ray. Kind of behind the times. But nothing we can't live with.
Have a 2013 CC 36 CKTS.
Almost a year old.
Quality control is certainly lacking.......
