we finally had our first trip in our new FR Wildwood 195bh. just 1 night. may have trip #2 this weekend if weather forecast eases up on the storm prediction...
over-all, "relatively pleased" is a perfect description.
I've found two minor issues (not caught in PDI since it was still winterized and too cold to add water when we purchased).
First was a kinked hot water line going to the shower, completely blocking flow. I just took off the faucet and adjusted things so the line needed less of a bend, heated it to get rid of the kink, and reinstalled/caulked everything. easier/faster than towing to the dealer and worrying about warrantee work.
2nd is the fresh water tank gauge isn't working. I can see the tank is full but gauge always shows empty. I'm going to take a look at it and see if it's something easy to fix. Otherwise, I'll wait till winter to worry about a warrantee claim (can make sure no other issues pop up this summer as well). Forgot to check black/grey gauges after they got some water in them.
other than that I've had to tighten some screws, align some trim. no big deal.
frame/axles seem solid / aligned well. fresh water tank didn't fall out when towed full, appliances worked, no leaks either from outside or plumbing.
