Sorry to hear of your problems. Unfortunately it is the same no matter what level you buy at. Our motorhome was back at the dealership for over two months when we first got it. Fortunatley this was during a time frame when we would not be using it but it really stinks that FR doesn't do a very good job of testing their products before they leave the factory. In your case a simple air pressure test on the water lines would have detected the leak and could have avoided the damage you incurred. Our case was simply small things, a missing counter extension, which took three times to get the color right, a radio that didn't work at all, map lights that didn't work. We had to take it back again after the dealership had it for 2 months to get the work completed as well as other things we found not working, shorted cable wiring from the rear to the front. I ended up running all new cable myself to resolve this issue since the dealership just rewired the cable s which still left the rear TV without reception. 252 miles round trip twice at about 8 mpg and gas was over $3 a gallon. Not cheap for their mistakes and no reimbursement. Our dealership did top off our propane tank once though. FR may have pefected the mass production of RVs but haven't figured out how to do it without all the problems they dump on their customers. The only thing is they are not alone. You'll read the same thing about other manufacturers as well. They may be Made in America
but it doesn't give you a whole lot to be proud of when you hear of all the problems that are just a result of creating quantity not quality.
