Just bought 2016 Force 39BH HD -problems!

New to RV life and loving it but not loving the 2 return trips to the dealer

Problems thus far:
Jake break inop

Electrical issue in cab causing odometer and gauges to flip continuously

Ruptured water line leading to filter needing emergency repair while camping

Fridge not cooling

Toilet not holding water

Anyone else have similar experiences?

First two are freightliner issues - they will remedy under warranty

fridge not cooling - what kind residential or Rv? how long was it plugged in for ?

water line - make sure you have a pressure regulator on the city water inlet or somewhere between your tap connect and the city water inlet. Just be thankful the ruptured outside the coach.

toilet - seal dried out. Sat too long on dealer lot without condition and dried out

word of wisdom- always shut off the water pump and/or city water when you leave the coach at a campsite. That way if there is a leak that develops, you will not be pumping water or flowing water through it while you are gone

Had multiple issues as well when we first started out to include the fridge only cooling to 60deg. Dealer called out a Frigidaire guy and was fixed in 10 minutes (exchange fan in freezer quit/common problem).

My jake works great, but had other electrical issues, some that turned out to items simply not being plugged in; Ice maker and 12V adapter/Cig lighter didn't work - plugs not seated.

Been full timing two months now and have had only minor concerns since those first 10 days living in the service bay!

x2 with myhorse on the other concerns.

The FR guys have been great working service/warranty stuff. Hope everything smooths out and you get to enjoy the view out the window for a while!
