I don't have a FR3 but my bedroom TV has the DVD player built into the TV on the right side. Just a thought.

We put a separate DVD player in the bedroom for mom and dad. They're inexpensive.

Happy travels.

Coming from a mid 90's class A that I bought in very used condition several years ago, I'm blown away by the amount of thought and features that forrest river was able to include on this "entry level" coach. Sure after our first use I've got a list of stuff for the dealer to handle. Some of the bigger ones...
Floor gets air under it and bows up while under way, not glued down?

One side of the motorized arm for the loft bed no longer bolted to the frame/support, so it's no longer attached, leaving only one motor and it's not strong enough to lift the bed back up.

Can't seem to drain the fresh water tank from the low point drains on the passenger side of coach. Maybe user error, but seems like just remove the caps and the fresh should come out... It's just a simple line to bottom of tank.

DVD player won't play in bedroom as there is no lines run from the head unit as it is to the other TV's

Congrats on the new unit
Get it all taken care of properly
glued down floor or not, it show not blow up /get air under it when driving
you need more then just glue like a good sealing job

as far as tank drain,I'll wager it's construction debris clogging the valve/lines. they never clean out the tanks after drilling their access holes .

Thanks again for all the reply's. The DVD in rear bed is no big deal really, DVD players are cheap these days. The floor is a biggie and don't really know how they are gonna fix it without ripping it all up and doing it over, I'm no vinyl guy, but I will keep close tabs on their solution. Also, forgot to mention (it's on the list though) the dinette table doesn't fit between the benches in the down position... Gap between benches is just a pinch to narrow. As for the fresh water drain, there are no other drain that I can see other then the two blue hoses (and the overfill hose) that are located at the low point drain on the passenger side. It will drain if I have the pump on (so it's not clogged), but I can't imagine that's the solution as it wIll take a while for the pump to run and will also run it dry. It appears as though one line runs directly from the bottom of the tank, so it doesn't really make sense that it doesn't drain. Even if it were clogged at that point it would at least drip out slow.

Congratulations!! Have fun, it is soooooo awesome out there traveling, meeting people, exchanging information about your rig and learning about all the variations (of rigs) out there. My Wife and I bought a 2015 Forest River Legacy Motorhome, and yes there are bugs that had to be worked out,
and a lot of stuff to learn, but in the end, it is worth it.. Keep fixing, keep learning, and get out there whenever you can!!!

Congrats on your purchase! We purchased our 2016 30ds in June and love it as well. Very happy and have had zero issues so far and have put about 4000 miles on it with many days of camping. Added a few shelves and fantastic fans in the bedroom and living area. Got a small blue ray player at Costco for about 40.00 and it now dwells in the bedroom. Now just counting the days to good weather so we can be off again.

Low point water drain on my 2015. You have to climb underneath the camper and unscrew the plugs from the ends of the hoses hanging down outside of the camper. They are right below the water pump.

Right TLAK... The problem is... They are not draining. When opened, they release only the residual water in the lines, it appears as though (I could very well be wrong) that one of the lines is just as the sticker says, a low point to drain the water lines in the coach, and the other is to drain the contents of the fresh water tank. Water will come out of one of the lines but only when pressurized by the pump.
