Having just spent our 31st night in our Columbus 320RS...all I can do is plead with you not to pull the plug. I think you'd be sorry. We've had some issues and the AC is about to be replaced by DOMETIC - it's a vendor problem, not a Forest River or Palomino or Columbus or dealer issue.
We've had a handful of minor issues, but the dealer has been very quick and thorough to fix them. I totally agree on "not buying a fixer-upper" and one time I got a bit testy with Forest River when they told me concerning the coaxial issue "You need to replace them with the crimp-style".
I pretty much jumped down their throat and said "No...YOU need to replace them and you need to get it done before I leave on vacation in 3 days." The next day a tech was out and spent 5 hours or so replacing every connection.
Other than that...we've had no more than the expected adjustments, tweaks and fixes.
And...we're having fun - spending a minimum of 7 days each month in our Columbus. Add that to other weekend trips, etc. and we're spending more than 1/4 or our lives in the 320RS.
