They don't clean up

I pulled my Microwave, controller, and entryway switch panel to do some rewiring. to my surprise there was sawdust everywhere, wooden cutouts, rough holes for wiring just punched thru the paneling and nothing was cleaned up. I'm wondering what I will find when I pull the under covering on the trailer.

Years ago I worked for liberty coach (we lowered the floor on sonic cruisers) and we never left a speck of debris. times change.

So is this normal for a new TT or just my Flagstaff?

Every trailer we've owned since 1975 (7) have had sawdust & debris left in them. Not a big deal. Even new stick houses have the same stuff left behind.
Lift the carpeting in your car/truck and find the debris.

I was a general contractor in Ca for years doing high end kitchens and any sub leaving debris behind paid for the cleanup or did not get the opportunity to work on one of my jobs again. I do't think it is unreasonable given what they charge for one of these units to expect them to vacuum up the sawdust and pickup the plugs.

Every trailer, every manufacturer has this.

Me either but they won't.

I don't know what all the different Forest River divisions have as policy, but I know when I bought my Keystone it was the dealers responsibility to do the cleaning as part of the dealer prep.

I have been sniffing all around my new "W" learning where everything is and have found a least one tree worth of saw dust in and around everything.

More? Sawdust!

Every time we stop after pulling the TT, we open the doors to the entertainment center and find...more sawdust. Even after two years. I just wonder how much was there to begin with! Indeed, workmanship has been redefined as doing enough to not get fired...
