So far, this has gone wrong - ill post pics up a little later.

First time i turn the water on in the sink its came out under the cabinet and all over the floor, being 6'3 it wasnt easy climbing in under the sink to do the repair work. Cabinet swole a little, they will need to replace it.

Drove screws into bath tub and cracked the tub against the wall.

Main bedroom, entire roof lining has come loose from the roof ?????? What? yes.

Two of the power outlets dont work.

One of the external doors wont take the key given to unlock it, the key wont even go in, no signs of damage or forced entry.

Cold water tap in shower howls like a banshee when turned on.

Bathroom door hinges held together by 3 screws. Holes were never made for the additional screws, door was hanging upon my first overnight stop.

Toilet water leaking from toilet, yes, toilet water.

1200miles away from the aholes that sold it to me and repairs can only be done by them.

Other than all the issues i enjoy my RV - dont however think they will be getting my business again anytime soon.

You do a proper PDI? They all built with some quality issues. Just got to find em before you sign the papers.

Obviously didn't do the pDI correctly - and this was after things i already asked to have repaired while i was waiting to take delivery. Some of the issues i mentioned you would never have noticed during the PDI - roof lining for example and toilet water, leaking sink - they dont have water connected so how do you check? But i agree - need to be more careful. My own fault

I would be suspicious of any PDI that could not demonstrate plumbing working properly. Simple to add water to FW tank and demo.
