For the cost of not very much fuel for a 7 hour run try a local tech to confirm your doubts. Two hour run is sounding good and confirm if you need to return. I wish I had recorded my first inspection tour.
Yes the stove works lights up and still having the water issues. I am going to speak with the sales guy tomorrow again and I am making an appointment and driving 2 hrs to another service department that probably isn't covered. But I'll gladly send them the receipt!

Better get it confirmed that you can do that first, or else you could be stuck with a nasty bill. Might be better to call FR's warranty department and see if they can find you somebody local who'll do it through a warranty claim.

Good point by Kaadk about repairs under warranty, and it does sound like you need some hands-on advice on more than one issue. I thought a shorter trip would cost less for your fuel, Follow Kaadk's advice if you need repairs. Good luck

We all have issues with our new trailers, I think. Take a deep breath and note everything wrong. I picked up mine in November and brought it back to be repaired, they had it all winter and I just picked it back up. They said they winterized it in Nov at drop off and I said great then why is the outside shower leaking. Said they dewinterized it in mid march, when it was still freezing during the day up here. Good luck and hope it all works out.

kids think tt stands for tan turd.

Hear that sound but no joy? May sound silly but you DO have propane in your tanks, don't you?
Took the propane tanks to get filled. They were pretty much full when I brought them there. I hooked them back up and I could hear the clicking sound but no ignition. Not even the smell of propane.

Then it's most likely only one thing, propane flow.

1. The solenoid can't open.

2. The solenoid isn't being commanded to open. Board, power to the solenoid, loose wire even.

3. The propane can't flow, kinked hose for example.

There's other possibilities, but no ignition and no smell, it seems that the propane isn't flowing for some reason.

I am sure the kinks will get worked out. Just frustrated that it's new and it has some issues. Ah well. I will take it in and see what the issues are and they can fix it.
