Coupla others to check at inspection:. Dealer had to touch up some of the caulk on various roof attachments such as vents and plumbing stack pipe. Kitchen and outside sink drains had to be replumbed due to bad install. Driver and pass. side sliders and screens very tight, needed generous greasing. Entry screen door bottom panel rattled, caulked with adhesive silicone at home. Galley TV latch bad install, fixed at home. Still finding extra screws/bolts and sawdust in/under cabinets, drawers, slides. Needs good cleaning/detail. All major systems working​ just fine.

Yeah, I don't have the Clearly Superior Retirement System either, but FERS with a decent TSP amount is doable. I may work part time soon, I was offered a really good paying one. I could use some extra dough for modifying the rig.

Glad all major systems are ok. Were the sink drains leakiing?

Caught it at inspection. Galley drain pipe was cut too short, leaked under the sink. Saw the leak in the outside sink when I ran water and opened the small drawer in front of it.

Got the coach back from warranty work today. One of the problems was intermittent camera, the little switch box under the dash was bad, glad that got replaced, I was sure it was a loose connection since it was not constant! Other problems were minor and have been taken care of. My only complaint was it took six weeks to fix what could have been done in one day, only part that was ordered was the switch box. Oh well, glad to have it back!

Got my Fomoto valve, now I need to change the oil. Next on the list will be the front end alignment I've been putting off.

I plugged a charger in the bedside 120 v outlet and use a six foot cord to reach up to the bedside tables, only used the charging outlets a couple of times. I ordered the six foot cables from Amazon.

Thanks for the reminder to check these. I forgot all about it after we spoke. Fortunately all are working.

Hope you get yours fixed soon.

Our bedroom USB station wasn't working when we did our PDI but the dealer fixed it right away. Good thing as we use it all of the time. We also installed new 120v receptacles with USB outlets around as well, for convenience.

Thank you for the info Dino! Our usb station doesn't work. I probably would have forgot to check it until we got around to using it.

Our 2017 Hurricane had all the same issues: charging station didn't work, cameras intermittent, speakers over the sofa didn't seem to connect to radio in bedroom and no one could tell me if they were supposed to. Seems like they should as no other speakers in coach play radio (in bedroom and outside only)

Also: one loose vent in ceiling, found a minor leak in ceiling over the wardrobe that was only visible when the slide was all the way out, heater works amazing in the bedroom but not in the rest of the coach...ANYONE ELSE HAVE THAT PROBLEM? Again not sure if something not working correctly or the design.

During our initial walk thru 2 of the 3 TVs didn't work and had to be replaced. Thought that was weird.

Our TVs now work really well and although we don't Camp too far from civilization, we seem to always get many channels without upgrading anything. At least 30-50 or more.
