Thanks for the replies! Sorry that I haven't kept up with the thread.
We have had a couple minor issues with the SV305... the tongue jack crapped out on us on our 4th weekend trip. The gears stripped. I took it to a Forest River repair place, the guy tore it apart and found the gears badly stripped. Forest River replaced the jack. The electric stabilizer jack switches stick on and off, causing one to apparently "burn up," as it does nothing now. And one of the "plastic cable mounts," for lack of a better term, which hold the electric cables tight up under one of the slides has broken. So, while traveling, the cable hangs down a few inches under the frame.
But... really no major issues in our first 4 months of off-and-on camping.
