Staples under the flooring!

I had a Rockwood minilite 2504s, and the quality wasn't bad at all. My new Sandstorm 211slc have had just a whole bunch of little lazyass things I've noticed. There were 2 areas where i walked barefoot after getting the TT home and noticed/felt something under the floor. It bugged me enough for me to put an endoscope under it to see what was it. Long story short I pulled out 2 loose staples. Luckily I was able to get under it through the tie downs on the floor. I installed my inverter and opened the bottom panels to find saw dust and metal shavings everywhere. Boggles the mind folks... I don't know how else to put it. My hot water cold water bypass for winterization was open. Half of the screws are put in at an angle, some are stripped. The switches on the wall put in crooked. It's so obvious to the named eye. My problem is I like the toy hauler so much I just fixed everything myself. In fact, I've spent a good whole week just touching up on everything. O'well... it is what it is I've read else where too on the quality issues and I'm experiencing it. Not looking for any action, since its probably hopeless... just venting. Anyhow can't wait to start camping!Click image for larger version

I know what you are saying But,like the "2 loose staples" Please raise your hand if you have Dropped a pill or something and Looked for it to no avail,only to find it Much later! The comment about "Lazyass things" is way off Base! The workers at Forest River Assembly Lines are "Far from LAZY"! You are to be commended for finding those 2 staples so quickly,some Members/Owners on here after owning thier unit for 1-2 years can't find thier "Water Filters"! Youroo!!

Yeah perhaps lazy ass might be off base. From my perspective if i was on the assembly line, I just wouldn't feel right letting these little things go down the line. I'm sure they are trying to bust out as many as possible and in turn leaving quality control behind.
