Wink Hello from northern Alberta!

Glad to be a part of the group! Hoping to learn that we aren't the only owners of a new unit having so many little issues!!

Welcome to the forum!

Sounds like most new trailers have something which needs fixing immediately after the owner takes delivery. Ours had a very loose plumbing fitting and most of the inside got flooded when we first tried to fill the fresh water tank! A new hose clamp fixed the leak under the bathroom vanity. I hope the floor and subfloor has not absorbed too much water!

Hopefully the subfloor turns out well. We have used our trailer 3 times. It's had the toilet fixed due to leak, rear slide was skipping on the track (now fixed). Awning motor replaced on recall, and now the black tank flush won't work. Cloths track in master closet screws ripped out, storage cover under couch screws also stripped out. Seems these things are just slammed together with no care or workmanship. Kinda depressing spending all this money to have to fix it up yourself, and take it to the dealer.

Welcome !!!!

You are definitely not alone. Slightly disappointed as my new coach is currently at the dealers for some repairs, but looking forward to having the issues resolved and getting it back soon for some real fun!!
