What do you think??

Hello All,
Just purchased a 2014 Rockwood 2905SS TT.Just returned from my first week, first camping trip, first time owning a TT and I wanted some advice on some problems I had for the week.
Ok First, the super slide Died. Dont know what happened but the day I was leaving it just stopped and I had to manually reel it in.Didnt want to wait for service guy so I just sucked it up(They are coming Thursdsay)and went camping.
Second it was downpouring all weekend while I was driving to the campground water was coming in from somewhere, not alot but it was there, I assume from just from wind,speed and water seepage but is That normal for a Brand new unit?
3rd there is a small drip under the kitchen faucet nothing serious but a drip nonetheless.
Now my family and I had a great time but I was wondering if these kind of things are normal in a new unit.I am not highly upset but I am contemplating getting very upset and trying to get a new camper.What does everyone else think?I just think for the money I paid for this rig, these headaches should be down the road, not first trip.Let me know, they are coming in 2 days.

The slide issue can be "overloaded" (IE too heavy - remove stuff); blown fuse; stuck seal to wall; motor failed; out of alignment.

Couple of things to consider. My slides are electrical/cable driven. I never deploy slides until I have leveled the camper, made sure I am plugged in to shore power and then remove any extra heavy items from them. When I deploy them or retract them, they are the only things being operated. I want full battery/converter power when they are moving. Knock on wood, no problems yet using this method.

It seems pretty normal to have a few bugs but I would insist on the warranty work being taken care of in a reasonable time frame. Let them know, nicely, that you aren't terribly happy about this and maybe they'll offer you some free nights camping somewhere or something.....

You shouldn't have water leaks. I'd def try to determine the source. Campers and Water are not friends.
