38RE 6 months of ownership

We've been out in the unit twice now since purchasing the 38RE in Feb., 2 weeks total. The unit is now back at the dealer for warranty work after the shakedown trips. Camping season in Minnesota is short and therefore the warranty period is down to about 4 months.

The coach has been at the dealer for a month now fixing various things. Some of the issues noted are: 1) drawer slides mounted with only 1 screw per slide allowing the slides and drawers to become misaligned. 2) Drawer slides self destructing and losing ball bearings. 3) Intermittent operation of inverter output to fridge, inverter is on fridge is not working even though it is turned "On". 4) Coax from satellite and cable connections outside to HDMI connection under TV wired incorrectly resulting in no signal to TV. 5) Wallboard to wooden frame at laundry hamper in bathroom has a 1/8th " gap. 6) Dining area chair tiedown ring pulled out of floor. 7) Lower storage compartment weather stripping is falling off. 8) Key missing for sewer hose compartment. 9) Power cord reel lower door lock incorrectly adjusted, will not lock easily and 10) Many Philips head screw heads are stripped out due to assembly using power tools working on a piece work basis.

There are other issues as well, all minor. I'm hoping that once all of these are handled, with proper care, nothing major raises its ugly head.

It is a beautiful coach, I'm hoping that it lives up to our expectations. Hopefully we'll have it back before Labor Day, if not we'll just have it winterized.
