Palomino pal speaks the truth!
I watched two people with an armfull of masking tape walking around a unit looking for discrepancy's in the factory sabre tour I took last week.

Well they must have had an off day because in my solaire the toilet seat would hit the toilet seat at 85% or so open. We had to hold it up until the dealer had t redo the wall in bathroom. Also our tub leaked because it was tilted. Is there no levels at the factory? Do they not do water tests after pluming installs? Also my LEDs were out in the awning. That should be an EASY check. I could go on and on.

You and the dealer should have also caught these problems during your pdi if the factory didn't.

Yeah. Cause we all hook the units up to water when we buy at the dealer. Whatever

Out of curiosity, is this *every* camper or just a select handful?

When we bought it all I did was sit on toilet to check legroom. My bad for assuming that the tech who installed it didn't check if the seat would stay up by itself. As for the lights I checked them day of pick up. That's when I noticed. I still had to wait for the strip to be ordered from factory.

Sorry but the last two units I bought were hooked up to water in the middle of the shop when I arrived for my pdi.
We ran everything to check for leaks.
Sorry that your dealer isn't as great as mine whom is very concerned that were happy in every way.
Before we left everything that turned on or off or ran in someway was checked.

Some dealers don't care ......
Mine happens to .

In a matter of speaking if a brand new unit leaves the dealer with obvious and blatant issues there at fault as they are supposed to be the factories second line of defense and the consumer the third during pdi.


Hope all your issues are fixed in a appropriate time frame.
