One of the first things I did was locate the water shut off for the fridge. I blew all the water out of the ice maker line and dispenser. This will never be opened again. It is a real pain to winterize. If I want ice to dispense, I just buy a small bag and dump it in the dispenser.

What did you do to keep your residential fridge from moving around?

Same thing happened to ours on our CC29RE over kitchen table....Put locktight on threads and now have small spring type Wood clamps on joint at ceiling just in case!!!!

Have a 38RD with residential frig - not secured. Have pulled about 20,000 miles and have not had any problems with it moving around. A lot of other problems but none with the frig moving.

Different model but similar concerns

My unit is a 38CK - 2014. I have no tire concerns but want to share some of the deficiencies experienced. The overhead LED lighting is terrible! Out of 18, (total) 9 have been replaced (under warranty) for flickering or simply not working. The front AC unit was never hooked up and missed by the selling dealer (Sunwest RV Sales, Courtenay, BC, Canada) on receiving checklist. I never had to use it until after the (New Vehicle) warranty ran out. Not covered under extended warranty as it is not a defective part or assembly.
The drivers side, main slide is 16'. The welds (tacks) on the geared rail came apart on the second attempt to put it out. 3 months later, still waiting for repair. Thankfully, I've had no need to move it. The 4 door fridge/freezer doesn't work in hot weather. I was told that because that side is exposed to the sun, I would have to install auxiliary cooling fans. I protested and the aftermarket warranty company (First Canadian) wanted to have the cooling unit removed and shipped 500 miles away for repairs. What was I to do with frozen food for a week, 10 days? Buy another freezer. Which I did. Also a bar fridge. It took a week to get authorization, during which time I transferred all to my motorhome (much smaller fridge.) The auto levelling never worked properly from the git-go and still doesn't. The touch control was replaced but it's still on a front-up angle. I've tried to level it manually, to no avail.
Just preparing a list of grievances to take to a lawyer, at which time I intend to sue the selling dealer and the warranty company. Paid nearly $6000 for a 7 year warranty and have had nothing but foot dragging and unsupportable denials of claim. One other thing; water pressure regulator(s) restrict flow to the kitchen (island) sinks while the bathroom and outdoor taps have good flow and pressure. No one seems able to find out where the restriction is located and apparently Cedar Creek has been no help in providing that information. Other than these few issues, I love the unit. It never fails to get compliments on appearance and apparent quality. When I tell folks about the myriad problems, it usually steers them away from buying a Cedar Creek product. In fact, a neighbour just bought a Redwood instead of a previously intended purchase of a new Cedar Creek. It's too new to compare but so far (3 months in) he has had zero problems. May be my next move.

Thanks to everyone for their replies. So far I towed it about 300 miles, have spent 4 nights in it as well as part of my shake down before we head out for the Winter. Everything works as it should. Just trying to stay ahead of things. This is our 9th trailer although 4 were pop ups in our earlier years. Pretty familiar with everything but things have changed since we bought our last SOB 5 years ago. This is a very nice unit and we are looking forward to enjoying it for years to come, but if it doesn't live up to our expectations there's always another dealer waiting to sell something...As far as other brands go, if you look closely those dealers have service departments too. Nothing is perfect.

I had that problem with kitchen sink water pressure. Stoltzfus rv in adamstown, pa fixed it when I had it in for some minor issues, but I did not ask them what caused the lack of pressure. I dealt with Terry in service if you wish to call them and ask. I haven't had any problems since.

kitchen water pressure.

Check the position of the weight on the spray nozzle. Ours was causing a kink the hose and low water pressure. Dealer fixed it in a couple minutes.

Had the front lamp fixture hanging by wires also. Loctite now keeps it tight. One over table fell off and broke.
