Quality Tested at Forest River

Quality Test
Iterative Design | Pre-Delivery Inspection
Fully satisfied RV owners with RV experience and customer satisfaction that is up to or beyond their expectations is the goal of Forest River, Inc.

With production capacity of a wide range and huge volume of products, Forest River, Inc. is able to fulfill its customers' orders promptly without cutting corners or rushing through production procedures. Whether it is RV, buses, pontoons park models or cargo trailers, each product undergoes an iterative design process with standard specifications being met and adhered to rigorously. This ensures that each Forest River, Inc., product is conscientiously built so that every product safely and consistently meets the customersí needs.

Pre-Delivery Inspection for RVs

Our recreational vehicles go through a detailed inspection before they are shipped to the customer. This systematic Quality Test takes place in a Pre-Delivery Inspection (PDI), a state-of-the-art facility that gives immediate daily feedback to production for quality assurance of every unit manufactured. Housed in an aesthetically pleasing 20,000 square foot complex, the test facility blends many of the old tried-and-true methods of testing diverse types of our RVís with new innovative ways of solving quality issues. All incoming units are appraised for quality of electrical systems, fresh water, holding tanks and numerous other mechanical or visual criteria as they journey down the PDI aisles.

So don't worry. All is good....

"Cleanliness is next to Godliness." ~My grandmother. Opened up the power distribution area under the refrigerator when I was adding some solar panels to our new Grey Wolf 23BD. Based on my grandmother's quote, am thinking either our unit missed the 20,000 sq ft Quality Inspection Facility, or all is NOT good. There is considerable wiring coming and going from the distro panel, and the sensor unit for the remote which controls awning, slider, lights, stabilizers, etc. There was also considerable sawdust, cutouts, wiring stripping, plumbing lines that were replaced (just cut and left in place) and other debris behind the distro control center. In aviation we call this shoddy workmanship. If you don't care enough to cleanup after an installation, what does it say about your installation itself? The kitchen sink faucet only ran from the cold water side -- missed by the factory and the dealership both. As a Six-Sigma Black Belt, am thinking they didn't even have "suspenders" when this was checked out. Not a great way to win friends (customers) ...

Just joined the Forums, will be starting a blog to document some of these issues, recco some things to check when buying, and some improvements which will greatly enhance the comfort, safety and enjoyment of your camper. Check back in a couple of weeks, look for MagsnDeb posts. VR, Mags.
