for the 31RK, the bedroom a/c is kinda noisy, the living room is not too bad since it is up on the ceiling which is pretty high up. the leveling system is great, have not felt any movement when walking like we used to on our TT.

Not too much help but figured I would reply anyway. Are the AC's noisy? - only have 1 in my 31RK and IMHO has typlical RV AC noise. Can you get to the refrigerator with the slides closed? - I can by climbing over a chair, but DW cannot. Does the 6 point auto leveling system make the unit stable when leveled with no movement inside when walking? - I don't have that option.

Enjoy!
Ken

We got our dealer to fix the problems. The factory left out a valve near the water heater. Got that added and fixed the hot water problem. Also added a 2nd valve to the black water tank to fix fix the blow by on the drain. Told us warranty would not cover the work but talked to Factory rep and they did pay it. So hope that are all the problems.

Traded our 2010 29 RE IN FOR THE 2015 31RK. Love it, especially six point leveling system. Never thought would like rear kitchen, but love having kitchen back out of main traveled way. Only issue is a continuing issue with all models on how bottom of slide out is wrapped. After only few extension of slide outs, material is already tearing exposing pressed under payment. Had same issue on 2010 model. After time, water exposure will deteriorate under layment and cause issues. Will probably be taking back in spring to get repaired.

Mmorrison, contact your dealer regarding the slides. The same thing happened on our brand-new 38FL. I contacted FR and they sent a repair kit (some type of rail system) that's going to be installed by the dealership.

Dealer got the water heater problem fixed. A valve was left out. Now they tell me the frig should cycle every 60 hrs, it will go to 53 degrees and then cool again. Anyone heard of this before. Stuff gets warm then gets cold again, Freezer starts to thaw. and refreezes.
It is a 4 door frig.

Back to the TV issue....we have a 2014 Silverback 33RL....our theater reclining chairs sit straight across the living room from the TV...the problem I'm having when I recline is I can't see the TV because my eyes keep closing....maybe I need one where my neck hurts and then maybe I could stay awake.
