Just Picked New DX3 36FK

Just finally picked up our new DX3 36FK. Very excited and really like the quality and detail that went into the unit. Yes, there's a few items that need attention, but I'm ok with fixing a few things. Lets me learn more about the details.

I do have a few minor QC items for Brian.

1. The paint guys left the masking tape on the INSIDE of the fresh water tank gravity fill door & compartment at the rear. I'll get it out, but just something to be aware of.

2. Hopefully the dealer already mentioned the HDMI plug & front TV bracket. I haven't checked it since the dealer did fix it, but what I noticed was the steel wasn't cut large enough to not put pressure on the HDMI plug. Something you may not see until things settle a little bit.

3. The attached picture. Now I do have to laugh at this one. The plastic portion of the screen door is about an 1" short of closing correctly. No matter how you move the slider, it's an 1". If you could please send me the right parts, it's an easy fix.

4. The awing doesn't seem to 100% retract. Maybe a minor adjustment issue?

I'm sure we'll find some more small items as we use it this weekend. Our first trip is near some friends, so it'll be interesting.

The hdmi cable, I added a 90' adapter to the end so that heavy cable didnt stick straight out, not sure if that would help in your case or not.

I have not looked at my screen door, but I will tonight, lol.

Congratulations on the new ride.

lol... I was wondering why I was getting a PM with a VIN.

I actually have zero notes on that VIN. The first thing I do, is pull up the VIN so I can see what comments and notes we have. They haven't registered yet...but I'm sure we will see that shortly. I can say, that thing didn't ship until 4/23...that is a pretty quick turn around if it is in your hands already.

3. In the production line's defense, the door and screen come together from the supplier. When we install it here, we never use the screen and that cover is always open. Never thought I'd have to add that to a checklist specifically. They check that the screen and door latch and operate properly. Maybe its a new "fresh air" makeup requirement by the government.

4. As for the awning...yes, there is a little latch that the awning locks into. It can get tweaked and it doesn't want to ride up over that latch. Pretty common adjustment.

Actually, I think we have a DX3 in the shop now, I'll see if I can get my tech to show me exactly what he does in that situation. There is a service manual on the flash drive...but I could never tell from the pictures what he was talking about. It's high time I found out.

Maybe I can help you with the awning. Look at the end piece
If you zoom in on the picture the piece that is on the end has two screws in it and maybe they are loose, also that end piece needs to be bent out a little bit. On the coach end.(looks like a little roller) the end piece needs to ride up and under that piece and it will lock in place. Also spread some
white grease on the part that looks like little roller and that should solve
your problem. If not then you can adjust the in/out limits on the awning.
Hope that helps.

Thanks for the info on the awning. When we get back from Minnesota this weekend, I'll work on it.

The service manual is on the flash drive that ships with the new units. I'm at the Berkshire Shareholders meeting this weekend....so I don't have access to the network drive. Once I get back I can post the pdf. (unless someone beats me to it)
