2015 Wildcat 317RL

Hi anyone have a 2015 Wildcat 317RL. We just purchased one but have not taken delivery yet. Just wondering if you were happy with the unit or not. Any info would be helpful before PDI.

Thanks

Thanks that's why we went with it the bang for the buck. Must be nice to be out I'm working right now and can't wait to get it. To much snow here right now to do the PDI. Anything we should look out for. Enjoy the camping and thanks for the input.

OK....here are the issues I had.

-Fresh Water tank center brackets came loose, tank didn't drop and it was a easy dealer fix. Rough interstates must have knocked the unscrewed center supports out. I could see the braces poking through the underbelly. I think this is a know FR problem.

-When the outdoor Kitchen/Bar slide was in, the wires that go to it were being pinched on the aft side. Easy fix, dealer repaired wires and I moved them a little more for extra clearance later.

That's about it ,besides the sawdust and stuff blowing out the vents for the first several trips.

This is our 3rd RV, so I'm not a newbie. Get the little stuff fixed and I think you will really like this unit. Coming up on a year on my 317RL and I've pulled it over 4,000 miles.

No regrets...really like it.

Congrats on your new rig. We have a 2014 317RL and have been very happy with it. The only real problems have been created from the dealer doing more damage on the typical laundry list than good. We did get the front cap painted this last winter because of the fade issue.

Thanks feels good to know others have the same model and have had very few problems. So far we are very happy with it but not going out till May. I guess we will just have more time to equip it.

Seems that Dodge is a little low in the rear but maybe I am not seeing the whole picture if your on an angle or something?

It's a Ram 3500 towing a 317RL Wildcat, can't get much better.
