Exclamation '15 Frame Rust

I have a 377FLIK I have had 1 month and noticed that there is a considerable amount of rust on the frame welds. I have only driven it from the dealer to the RV campground, not a great distance.

Has anyone else seen this problem.

They build them in the winter, store them outside in the snow covered yard and then drag them thru miles and miles of salt covered roads. Sometimes the receiving dealer washes off the salt. If you catch it at PDI, the dealer will steel brush the rust off and put a protective paint coat on. If you diont catch it, good luck. FR's official reply is they do not warrant rust. Even if its rust on delivery. Yes I have experienced this too.
