Okay picked up the new rig yesterday. Seems the punch out guy had the day off and another mechanic filled in. Few minor issues on the walk-through. The first thing to go was the "O" shaped towel hook. Screws stripped out from everyone pulling on it. Inside water heater access panel doors had been bent from someone trying to open them. Was supposed to be weatherized (wasn't) and when we sit weatherize it, discovered the kitchen faucet was cracked (replaced). I loved the quality control of Forest River and their hose and wire control. Seems whom ever goes first, the other deems it necessary to wrap the others wires/hoses. Pretty standard on a rigs I guess. Checked the roof (good) checked all around and pulled her home. Got home and found the mechanic had somehow put the breakaway brake cable in such a manner the cut the cable clean (need a new one). Got in it last night and fired up the heater and began cleaning. Removed the hinges that lock the panel doors from opening and replaced them with magnetic cabinet locks. I did the same on the side cabinets where the gas goes to the outside. Now I can see if water gets in there Can open them if needed but stay tightly in place.
Everything worked as it was supposed too. Interesting enough I asked about the oven pilot light issue. The clue was the free long lighter. Mechanic said Suburban ovens pilot light doesn't stay on after using the oven as. Safety feature (hum). So he says you have to light the pilot light every time before using the oven (again...hum?). Today air bed is coming out along with the 250 lbs (exaggeration) rock counter extension. Don't need either of them.
Radio and TV worked good (today anyways)band will see how long the radio keeps working.
All in all it was a god experience. Few issues at the dealer got rectified right away. They made good with several items I wanted to buy thrown in on the deal. Free is good! I love how they say they provide everything you will need to go right out camping. They do but don't go right out. Take it home and go through it with a fine tooth comb. Take the heavy non needed stuff out and fill it with the heavy non need stuff you like better (lol).
