Had a few. First was the axle seals where shot. I replaced them and the brakes . Keep a very close eye on exterior seal like fridge vents and other exterior caulking. Also had main brake wire get smashed into because of the way there routed it. I fixed that by running the wire along the frame then drop down behind the axle. Had to re staple a lot of trim , caulk back of counter top and shower surround . Had table replaced because they used too long of screws and broke threw the top. I also had to add the 4th long bolt that holds the AC down to the roof. . Without it , IT leak badly into the trailer.

Thanks for the heads up - will keep a watch on that stuff. Everything I checked so far looked good but they can sneak up on you! Maybe mine is a Tuesday build....

Along the wall edge of the 90 roof radius cap are screws with plastic washers. Check that all of the washers are there. It would be a good idea to apply sealant to each one. They are known to leak and over a period of several years will cause the wall to start dry rotting and delam.
