Could this void the warranty(C), particularly if you have some type of transmission problem down the road? Not sure I would buy a rig from that outfit(D)!!
to comment on these 'perceived' problem:
you say "...tow a trailer".... but a toad is not a trailer
the 'delivery service' is only allowed to do what the factory allows it to
no Warranty starts until the customer PURCHASES the RV, so no, nothing the factory or delivery service or dealer 'does' impacts the customer's warranty
if you think an RV just 'arrives' by magic, then yes, you will never buy an RV from 'ANY' outfit... even dealers who go and pick up RVs themselves drive their TOAD to the factory!
...this is how it's done in the industry, all day, every day, every unit, no matter what brand.
