Excited but Concerned New 2021 Sierra 2990TRIK

Hello FR Forum. As title highlights, we are excited as heck to be new RV'ers, but I have been reading all the Forum Reviews and many nightmares of brand new FR RV owners with sometimes significant system problems and defects. Am I going to regret this? I am adept at working thru issues but I want to enjoy using this RV. I ALSO enjoy some maintenance and know I should use first year warranty to find/resolve any issues..... Hoping many of you had few/no issues with your Sierra and/or FR 5th Wheel.

I’m in my second Forest River fifth wheel. First a Sabre and second a Spartan. I had a few issues here or there and have always been happy with my RVs. They were not perfect and had some issues from the factory and others self-inflicted.

We fulltimed in both and that puts extra stresses on each.

Thumbs up New RV Excited but still Concerned

Thanks for the encouragement Ependydad. I haven't been this excited in quite some time. I pick up the RV in the next couple of weeks. I will be using some of the good advice surrounding PreDelivery Inspection/PDI, and intend to be as thorough as possible. Again - thanks for the encouraging feedback!

I’ve used this checklist a few times now. It’s been great for giving a thorough test of all systems.

The only thing I feel like it’s missing is take a DVD to test each player out. Most of mine have been mis-wired in some way.
