We did have the dealer upgrade the pinbox on our 2014 Silverback 33RL from the factory pinbox to a TrailAir pinbox...was trying to get away from a lot of that bumping and chucking that goes on pulling a 5th wheel....because of some other issues I later had to change to a slider hitch and they have much more movement in them that a straight stationary 5th wheel, in my case, I cancelled out all that I had gained with changing to the TrailAir...wish I had my $1200 back.

We also purchased a 2016 33ik had it on maiden trip in June, refrigerator would not cool below 45 degrees freezer just to 32. Thought bad refrigerator took back to dealer July 1 just picked it up today. In our case kudos to our dealer Stoltzfus RV the unit was installed totally incorrect at the factory.

They thru communication with Dometic completely rebuilt the area the refrigerator was in. The factory did not install any insulation above and on the sides, nor did they install the required baffles in the area of the top vent. The unit now cools to 0 in the freezer and 38 in the frig area.

The best part is they did this without yet receiving authorization from FR to do the repairs. The service manager said they were not going to have the unit sit there so they made it right and they will deal with FR. That really made an impression on us. But, now we are wondering what else may not have been built correctly and that maybe we got a Friday unit. Fingers are crossed that it might just have been the person who did the refrigerator was having a bad day.
