All of the plumbing is tested with water pressure in ALL of the water lines and then drained. I did see the slides functional. Appliances were not tested. At the last station, the interior is pressurized and they check for any leaks with soapy water. Any leaks are fixed. The unit is then weighed and the sticker is put on the trailer before it goes out the door. Three times a day, a trailer is put through a water spray booth to make sure the build process is still good and there are no leaks.
I know what you are saying about being anxious. Ours was supposed to be built yesterday.

They also check the video system. Not necessarily the TV, but the connections. At one station on the line, they have a TV that they hook up to and test the DVD player.

I also saw them testing the electrical lines with meters and the like. The tour moved pretty quick so I could not see exactly what they were testing.

Jdefeo1, this bud is for you. A real horror story. Ordered the RV at the show in Cleveland, January 2011, put money down.

We ordered minimal carpet, meaning no carpet at the front door, just a little piece than runs along the slide out about 18” wide from the bathroom to the front of the RV. The RV did not arrive with the minimal carpet, it had full carpet. Since Myrtle Beach is our destination twice a year, read sand, there was no way the DW would accept what we did not order. Being the nice guy I am, and sometimes the fool, I paid in full for the RV on February 19.

A quick fix, no more than two weeks. You’ll have to forgive me here because I can’t remember the exact time line. Well we wait and wait. DW gets to thinking she just doesn’t want them to glue new linoleum over what is there now so that issue and the time issue is working on her mind.

Come to find out they can’t find an installer that will touch the job. OK, we are still waiting, why did my dumb ***** pay for it. I had called the factory because at one time the dealer said they didn’t have the linoleum from them to put down.

So one Friday, end of March early April I call the dealer. All taken care of, it just left for the factory, they will do the install, be back in a week.

At that point we crossed the nuclear threshold. Excuse me, but you are taking MY RV where? I’ll have to tell you my Mother was Polish and anyone on the other end of the phone I was using knew it.

I called back to the factory, still Friday, I don’t want customer service, I don’t want warranty, I want to talk to someone that signs the ‘fill in the blank’ checks. This guy got to the bottom of it within an hour.

First and foremost. We had ordered the best selling trailer they build. If the dealer had called the factory on the following Monday February 21 they would of built it to order and taken the one there back. So what the factory did was gut the trailer, kitchen and bathroom to the walls, everything out. Laid new linoleum wall to wall, and put it back together. By then the relationship with the dealer was poisoned to say the least. They, FR, delivered it to our home with two weeks to get it ready to leave for MBTP in early May.

To this day I don’t know who told the lies and who told the truth, but sometimes you just have flip completely out to get any place with some people. It has been a great RV, little issues from putting screws back into the holes they came out of, things like that.

Best part, I have a real friend at the factory that will help me with any problems I have, we have to make a run out there some weekend.
