Same problem with Solera MH

fwiw documented tank capacities in the Solera brochure are also not correct.

How many consumers measure tank capacities when they buy a new unit? Probably not may. Mine was only off 5 gallons, 30 instead of 35. But as a percentage it was a big deal to me. There is no resolution. This is just the way it is

As the regional rep form Forest River said on the phone to our salesman "It is what it is". But that was just the wrong thing to say at the time. After that the dealership manager called Forest River direct to get some answers. In the long run we can live with it.

FWIW, I would be pissed if I was expecting to have 108 gallons of gray water capacity in my fifth wheel and the unit came in with just 60 gallon capacity. The website still shows that 108 gallon capacity.

FR reserves the right to make changes to the specifications without out any notice.

I agree that when the difference is massive that they should update their collateral.

We were shocked really when we first got the news that the information received was incorrect by that much. But in the final decision to get this RV that was only one of the factors. Length, weight, layout and just what was included like second a/c, solid counters, 21' adjustable awning and remote control for slides and landing gear all were considered. In the end we just could not come up with a comparable unit that would make less storage capacity a show stopper.

We just had it out for 8 days and everything worked with no problems other than us learning how to operate a new RV. We have had some type of camper for 33 years and no two have worked the same. Overall we are very pleased. I plan to take it out next week for an annual fishing trip and will be pulling a bass boat behind the RV for the final test.
