I am knocking on wood frantically as I type this but I am fortunate to have had only minor problems ( water filter) in 2 1/2 years. Much sympathy for those who continually have serious issues. Inferior parts? Shoddy workmanship? Incompetent dealer? I don't know, but it does seem that the frequency of serious problems is much greater than when I joined this forum after buying my Shamrock.

Like you, our problems were very minor (cosmetic) which I fixed.
I wonder if FR are using lower or cheaper grade products on their 2016 and 2017 campers.
In another thread, people are mentioning having problems with their hitch ball being too tight on the A frame. From what I read, FR changed the A-frame in March 2016. Makes me think that they change more than that A-frame in their new models. ($$$$$)
Another thread mentioned the bracket that holds the RVQ on the outside coming off the wall.......and now it's the AC and microwave !!!

Ours is a 2016, but built in 2015, and after a few outings, we didn't experience any of the above problems. I feel as of 2016, FR went from quality to quantity !!

It's the luck of the draw with all of these different brands of appliances, any one of them can go out at any time, I remember wondering about my 6 year old Kodiak after using all of them so many years which one was going to go first, LOL None did, even the awning kept working LOL (I was sure that thing was gonna break!)

My DW was in our camper listening to a podcast last night and I walked out with a cold coffee and stuck it in the microwave, heated up just fine, but you never know now days I guess.

Good luck to all on repairs and keep us posted about the fixes. If the same appliances are used from 2015 to now I hardly think the fault lies with FR unless there is a strange wiring problem involved to short things.

I was afraid of fire so I pulled the Microwave and called the closet Flagstaff dealer in Boise, Happy Campers told me they didn't like to work on units that were not bought there, however if I brought the Microwave in along with my proof of purchase they would do the paperwork. It took about a week and half and I got a call drove to Boise and picked up the new microwave and installed it no problems after that. If I have AC problems like many I'm going to take to the original dealer
