The industry hasn't changed since we bought ours, in 04.

Oh I failed to mention...I cannot open a single window in my 2014 35rok!!! I never thought to check if I could open the windows. I've had some very strong men try to open them and they can't either!!! My RV service guy can't and he can't figure out why they won't open. The RV has been leveled by a professional and has piers under it like a mobile home. Thought that might help but nope. Pretty sad when you pay $40,000 cash for an RV and can't open one single window in the entire unit!!!!!!!!!!

well i just got a little more bitter....

Dometic fridge just crapped the bed! (blockage in cooling unit, which means whole cooling unit replacement)

Will hold out and see what they are going to do for me here. I live in my trailer and its not readily movable during the winters and their are no mobile/onsite rv service shops within 300km of here. this could get interesting...

Its not a job that i cant do, but i sure as heck wont be paying out of pocket ~$2000 for a new cooling unit on a year old fridge

Thanks much.
We've got a 2014 Vibe 268RKS. Bought it in Feb. Spent three months in it and thousands of miles on and off over the past 10 months. Little things (like when you buy a new home) Most, I took care of on my own since we're picky. A few minor warranty issues which were taken care of by the dealer. Happy Forest River campers here.

On my second forest River TT. No problems with the first one. Traded it for one with a bunk house, outdoor kitchen and a slide. Very happy since 2012.

My second is a 2016 prime time Spartan 1032 There are some minor issues the should have been caught at the factory but I fixed them my self. The big issue was the the Dealar , General RV would not stand behind the product. The check off list for the operation of every thing was not part of the walk through. Then I had to sign a form that stated the General RV would not warranty anything and I it was sold as is.

I fixed most of the issues my self rather than hassle with the dealer.
I really liked the part, (I HAD to sign a form that stated,NO Warranty,As IS!) on a 2016 Prime Time unit! That would Really make Me Happy! Youroo!!

This leaves me puzzled? Why would anyone sign such a document on a 2016?

The only way I could even see that happening is if the unit was a 2016 that was used or damaged and substantially discounted?

Too be clear the dealer position was that the manufacturers warranty is good. But they were not responsible.

I had a similar problem with my 2013 xlr. It is because the mounting screws are torqued too tight. loosen them a bit and the windows will function.
