Faux Stainless Appliances?

I noticed a white chip on the front of the Refrigerator on my fairly new Rockwood A122 Hardside Series trailer. On closer inspection I noticed that it is actually a paint chip in the silver (faux stainless steel) front of the door revealing the white plastic underneath.

The Rockwood brochure clearly states under "Hardside Additional Standards" a bullet point "Stainless Steel Appliances". Now maybe I'm being overly picky but I feel a bit cheated. "Stainless Steel" paint is NOT Stainless Steel. A minor nick in a Stainless Steel metal door might cause a small scratch or dent, but not an obvious white paint chip. I think Forest River (Warren Buffet can send some of his perceived tax undercharge to do this) needs to correct this. The whole thing is deceptive at best.


Anyone else have this problem?

Has Forest River offered any solution?

Could the door be removed and a stainless panel inserted into the door front? Or perhaps they could swap out painted for real metal doors.

If you think I am a whiner...flame away!
