I hear ya.... We picked up our new Wildwood 171RBXL and dealer said they went thru all the systems to make sure everything's good..... Got it home and put some water in and first thing I noticed is all the plumbing needed bleeding cuz they had never checked any of the water system and right off the bat just in front of the gray tank dump valve water is leaking. Looks like they smeared on some glue to fix it that failed. Also had them install a TV mount..... What a joke, there is ZERO support behind the lil TV spot sticker and the mount ripped right out of the wall!!!! Ended up at HW store to fashion my own support system but I'm still worried about that because it's only held on by that cheap 1/8" thing cheapo panelling!!

Haelles, can you post an update on your situation? Did CW fix it before your trip? If so, was it to your satisfaction?

Update

Well, we picked up the camper from CW. Leak was repaired, but not paneling....meaning we would take it but needed to bring it back for new paneling. Took it out on a 10 day trip. Realized on day 2 it was not going to be a fit...turns out the black/gray tanks are significantly smaller than the Surveyor that we traded in. After our trip, stopped back by CW.....had a heavy conversation with the salesman...not the one who sold us the Wolf Pup...explained how the last sales guy clearly did not understand our needs...didnít do much to help us understand specs...cost us a bit more $ but they gave us an excellent deal on a different TT.....Coleman 2855bh. Would I return to CW in the future? Probably not. Did the very nice salesman fix this for us so that we are happy. Yes.

Thanks for the update. Hopefully you knew the specs for the tanks on the new Coleman so you are disappointed by that this time. With each new trailer you learn a little bit more.
