The little brace holding it broke off while traveling and the flapping caused the rear screw to rip out. They put bolts on it instead of screws and seems pretty solid now. But I will add a couple more braces later. The tires didn't even come off the lot with me. Part of my buy deal was they changed my new tires from my old rig to the Creek. Will not travel on trailer tires. Also the glass in the overhead cabinets came loose. Evidently the silicone caulk they use was not very good. I put them back with good stuff. And the only other problem is my black tank dump pull is really really stiff. Also leaks a little. Yes I have a valve on the end of the dump but a brand new trailer should not leak at all. Probably something to do with it being stiff. But they are gonna fix that too. She has a few thousand miles on her and that is the only problems I have had in the past year.
I replaced all the screws on each side with SS bolts and nuts
I took pieces of 1/2" starafoam packing material and jamed it up between the lower metal grey trim and the metal frame that runs along the side....No more wobble/flapping of the sides
My '14CC black lever has been stiff since day one. FR had the bath and kitchen grey tanks labeled backwards
Painted all the underneath frame etc with black rust paint and then sprayed rubberized undercoating over that..12 lg cans so far
Treated all rubber gaskets etc...Very Important as they will dry out and crack!!!!
Retightened all screws...1/4 to a full turn on sliders
All for preventative maintenance!!!!
