We found a possible issue that the other 344QB users may want to check.
We noticed that we had a leak in the fresh water tank. After furher investigation we found that where they attached the support strap to the frame for front grey tank the screw went into the fresh water tank. They must of noticed that the factory because the hole was "fixed" with a piece of tape and the support brace screw was moved back to a better location. You can look to verify if this had also happened to your unit - there should be an access hole directly back from the main drain location in the center of the unit.

I do not know why ours started leaking, the tape used to repair the tank was very good - but just did not hold.

I am currently trying to get hold of the dealer warranty department to see what can be done, but in the mean time - I found a patch kit at the hardware store to minimize the leaking until we can findout what service wants to do.

Another note/question for the 344QB
Has anynone notice the outside kitchen door is pushing out at the sides?
Mine is now about a 1/2 inch from being closed but only at the lower conners.
Any suggestions on how to fix would be apprciated.

My exterior door, for the outdoor kitchen, is doing the same thing. The rear, lower corner of the door has bowed out on my 2013 312bhx. I'll be taking it in to the dealer soon.

I have the same issue on my 312 BHX-OK. Took it to the dealer Monday. Looks like I'll be getting a new door to the OK.

The service advisor said it looked like the struts used to hold the door up where too strong and when the door is closed, they push the corners of the door out. Mine looks like it will eventually crack the door near the slam latch as it is at least 1/2" out and getting worse. The struts are so strong that I can barely get the door closed.

I'm getting ready to take my 293REX in for the same problem. Outside Kitchen door is bowed out at both bottom corners.

Just talked to my dealer, they were able to repair the door without replacing it by adjusting the arms that hold up the door, and reshaping the bend created in the door at the latch point. I have not seen it yet, but it sounds like a good fix.

Sounds simple enough, hopefully it will last. Mine was in for the ok door, and a few other things, yesterday. The dealer said they were waiting to hear from FR on what they suggested for a fix.
