Or perhaps we only hear from the ones who do have issues.... Anyway thanks again very informative
Add to that the information eDad gave on the original "back to the factory thread" about units only being "sample" QC'd and I think we all have our answer as to how some units (knockin' on wood re our new 5er) have multiple problems.
Example: All those different sized axles piled up together.
Just how easy could it be for a worker having a bad day (or a Friday) to grab the wrong size?
DH is a logistics specialist. I wanna see his face when he sees that picture.
During inventory, it doesn't matter if the warehouse guys are supposed to have 20 of an item, and there IS 20 of them, but 19 are in the right spot on a shelf and 1 is 2' to the left; FAIL!
I see what I believe to be a ton of wiring waste as well. All those wires hanging out of the ceiling holes. How much of that is cut off as waste? Surely it doesn't take 8' of wire to wire in one ceiling light?
They seriously push our units around the factory on wheels? PUSH
them? LOL do those wheels have brakes?
I thought I saw a video from Goshen that showed units coming down some sort of conveyor. Don't remember what brand that was though.
eDad, I didn't see any pics of the floor being stood up vertical for under belly wiring and plumbing. That's not done there at the Sabre site like it was on the Goshen video? Edit; I can't seem to find a Goshen video showing the frames being lifted vertical for underbelly work, so I could be totally off the mark with this. I know I saw one *somewhere* but most likely it wasn't here on this forum, and may not have been FR. (wink)
Yeah I know....
but yanno, they don't call me Weezer cuz I'm so fuzzy loveable and sweet. /snark
