Luck of the draw. You win some you lose some. I love them regardless of problems. Good training. You learn a LOT fast when stuff goes wrong. If dealer has to fix, watch and ask questions where you can fix next time, when warranty is out.

At least in Heaven, RVs will be perfect, and I won't have to keep fixing them.

There are many other adjustments that can be made to
allign your slide. The 3 nuts on the end of the ram only
adjust travel in and out. It sounds like your issue is
with the synchronizer and possibly arm allignment. Unless
you know what your doing I suggest that you let the dealer
do this. Especially since it's a warranty item. Your door side
slide is about 600 lbs (est). Safety should be a top concern

The recipe for perpetual ignorance is:
Be satisfied with your opinions
and content with your knowledge.

After our first two trips out we had a list of 6 items that needed to be fixed. These are the items I considered to be major items (hydraulic leak on front cylinder).. Had some other similar minor items like lock adjustments and such that I did just fix my self. BUT having said that they do need to step up QC on the rigs, but in the mean time I just try not to worry about the small stuff, it is a house in a perpetual earthquake.

You have a hefty list of issues, but a good number of those can be fixed with just simple adjustments.

I have a 2013 36 CKTS and I too have had numerous issues to address. A good number of these, I was able to fix myself, but others required the support of the Cedar Creek Warranty Department and a nearby dealership. I must say that Cedar Creek Warranty was very willing and able to help when required. I am sorry to say that my list of problems far exceeds the items you've mentioned. There were a myriad of wiring issues, a refrigerator that would not run, the full interior ceiling that had to be replaced, all of the hinges on the overhead doors were ripped out by the spring closures. There were items needed adjustment in order to operate properly, such as the electric awning. We had chairs and shades that needed replacement, a grey water tank valve that broke and that's only a partial list. Having said all that, I like my Cedar Creek very much and I feel this is like a lot of products that are assembled from diverse manufacturers' components.....some things just don't work or break! I would have hoped for a better QC from CC and the selling dealership and I should have taken more time to do a better pre-acceptance inspection. But now its all fixed and I'm happy and next month I'll be a happy camper in Charleston! See ya on the road.
