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!!!!

Best piece advice my father gave me when I bought my 1st is "All rv's suck!!" Not necessarily the truth but they certainly they have some shortcomings. when your basically traveling your house down the road at 70mph things are bound to shift and move. No question they could do some things better but if they did then what would we have to fix!!!! His advice really helps me keep a level head when something breaks.

More minor issues with my 2014 CC 36B4 (yes prolly one of the last bunkhouses CC made) as well as my father's 2015 38FL. Ofcourse we were hit by the faded front and rear cap issues like many of you but were fortunate enough that CC is replacing both front and rear even though we are slightly outta warranty. In my humble opinion preventative maintenance is key (maintaining wheels,bearings, roof, rechalking, regularly inspecting everything, etc) to ensure a long life for these units. And I have no doubt some may have purchased a "lemon" and I really feel for you. Hopefully things will eventually be corrected for you. Good luck to all!!!

The best thing you can do for your RV is to store it under cover. I put up a 18x36 metal carport which has paid for itself and then some.

Wish we could but we live in a RV park 4 months out of the year on a rented lot. We change parks every couple years. It won't fit in our driveway and sits at a storage facility when not in use the rest of the year...Wish we had the room and the luxury of a roof over our roof, but it's just not in the cards..
