We've got the same model and love it. We're out on our first long trip - 35 days.

Enjoy.

Second trip out on our 2018 35IK. Take a #2 Robertson screwdriver and tighten all the screws on the trim around your slides and storage compartments. I would say 1/3 of them are stripped as they torqued them too tight at the factory the other 1/3 were real loose. Iím sure there is more one will find as you go through the unit.
Cheers

Also, check the wheel arch trim. Ours was held on with self-tapping sheet metal screws and they had starting coming loose. This allowed the trim to "flap" a little while driving and it caused a couple cracks in the trim around the screw holes. I replaced all the screws with 8/32nd bolts, washers and nylon lock nuts.

As others have said, no trailer is perfect and stuff will go/be wrong. Enjoy yours and safe travels.

Funny you should mention this, I had both the fender trims replaced last week under warranty. Iíll take your advice and use stainless machine screws to replace the sheet metal ones

Safe travels

Use small piece 1x2 backing behind the screws.
