Enjoyed lurking here. Lots of great info. We live in the DFW area and purchased from the notorious Fun Town in Cleburne, TX. We camped for two nights right after purchase using all the systems. It went quite well. PDI was ok, but somewhat frustrating. The guy doing it told me twice he was just an hourly worker when I complained of a couple things. I know I bought on the lower end of travel trailers, but it was about as personal as checking out at the grocery store. So, I'm at all cost trying to avoid going back there.
So far, the only problems:
1)Lower Window treatment bracket that pulled out of the wall. Fixed myself. It was too tight. Relocated it up an inch.
2)Broken latch on pull drawer under jackknife couch. Fixed it for now myself, but ultimately need a new latch. I'll order and do it myself.
3)Battery cover won't latch due to the battery cables. Found it sitting on the A frame after getting home from the dealer. I'll just cut away a little of the battery box near each terminal to allow room for the cables and then box will close.
4)One of the drawers between the fridge and bunks wouldn't stay closed. It fixed itself somehow.
5)Small dent in fake plastic diamond plate on front. That's on order. This was my first moment of irritation with PDI. The guy said it wasn't there fault. Probably happened on the way there from a highway rock. He was going to brush it off. Needless to say, words were exchanged and he made note of it. Again emphasizing he's an hourly guy. I don't get that, but whatever. Figure we'll see that around Christmas 2017. We will have to go back for this.
6)I can see a couple staples in the ceiling in bedroom, but it sounds like something I can dab some paint onto.
7)The awning switch appeared to be reversed. This is actually my fault I think... Thinking I rolled it out too far and wound it in backwards. I'll address this when we camp again next weekend.
I'm trying to avoid a trip to Fun Town unless something is really a hard break as its 60'ish miles each way.
Now, the questions....
1)When the slide is in, I can see a little daylight inside on the floor where the slide meets the wall near the bedroom. Everything appears to be in place, so just wondering if this is normal.
2)On the underside where some wires run into the fabric covering there a bit of a gap. I'm wondering if when driving in rain, water will enter there and then pool, weighing it down and ripping it?
3)My grey filled up really fast on our two night trip. When I drained it, it came out with some pretty good force. Odd thing is, it actually did it twice. Drained for a bit and then after jigging the trailer around a bit it started up again. Normal or was something maybe clogging it from the factory?
4)When running the hot water heater, I tried to run it electric and gas at once. Had some overflow from the valve on the outside. Is this normal, or was it heating up too much using both sources?
5)Water Pump vibration. When I used the FW tank, if a faucet was on full, the pump was fairly loud and the vibrations could be felt in the floor. If I ran at lower flow from the faucet or two faucets in full it wasn't nearly as bad. Is this normal? I pulled the panel and the pump appears to be secure.
Finally here's a pic. We are actually really happy with the trailer. Had a great couple nights in it on that first trip. I'm actually quite pleased that I've only had these small issues so far.
