I just bought a brand new 2014 Solaire Eclipse 318TSBHK. I have had it for 2 weeks, haven't had it out camping yet. I had a problem with one of the SO only opening @ 1" on one side only, then nothing. Did some research and contacted Lippert, who makes the Schwintek slide mechanism. Simple fix, motors were just out of sync. I spent a whole weekend going through it with a fine tooth comb. While checking all plumbing connections, upon inspecting the water pump area, I found a couple of the hose connections dripping water. Further investigation revealed that the crimp style hose clamps weren't very tight. I was able to spin the hose ends on the fittings. (Which is where the water was leaking) So, I cut those off and found that the hose was 1/2" and the fittings are 3/8"... I removed every one of those crimp clamps and installed real hose clamps. The other issues are, while towing it from the dealer to home, one of the bench seats for the dinette came lose from the floor and is just dangling from the wall. Also the wall next to the counter has separated from the counter, leaving a 1/4" gap.
Yes, all trailers have issues! But really, just driving 25 miles and things are falling apart, and water leaks from day one!
