Seems like everything is as cheap as they could get away with. This will be my last one. We had a forest river wildwood 1998 5th wheel. Never had a problem with any of it. Slide out went in and out 1000 times and still worked great until we traded it in on this MBS. One of the reasons we picked forest river over other brands. Oh well live and learn.
I feel your pain on the tire inflation. I have to hold one side of the valve with needle nose pliers to add air or it pushes back.
I just addded additional 2" extenders for the front wheels as they were too close in the hubcaps to screw on tire pressure monitors.
I understand that forest river is hitting a price point and starts with a base model but it is frustrating at quality of some items. My wife and I are very disappointed with the the plastic door interior panels on the sprinter cab. They are the same as a work vehicle.
I am investigating covering the door panels with matching vinyl/leather. A few touches like this in the front would take it to a "Mercedes" level you would expect.
