It might take you a trip or three to start noticing stuff. Just keep a list.
When we packed up from our first trip (an hour up the road) we discovered we had no brake or turn signals. After four hours of crawling around and playing with the plug and TV receptacle, we found the wire harness had rubbed against the screws holding the floor to the frame. We fixed the break and tied the wires away from the screws. Forest River reimbursed us the cost of having a tech come to the house to do the work.
During our Yellowstone trip last month, we found something on the floor every time we opened up the our Forest River 425D -- screws, part of a bearing, nuts which held the stove cover together, the bumper for the bed rails (an ongoing problem for many people). It was just annoying until we stopped in the Black Hills and discovered the shelf next to the frig had collapsed. Our PUP spent two weeks at Lazy Days in Tampa getting warranty repairs.
I love a lot of the features and ours is certainly bigger than our old Fleetwood Rushmore, but the build quality is definitely questionable.
Good luck with your new PUP and tow it till the wheels fall off.
