Are RV's being built w/poor quality standards?

We all have our own opinions, I know the problems and shortcomings working with my RV.
Here is an article about it:

And if it goes in the direction of the vaccine and activism Iíll shut it down again, and a lot faster this time.

Speaking of vaccine, how did your DEF issue work out? Din they find a definitive issue with it or, "here's a/the fix, good luck".

How about if I go "anti-vaxxer" this time; and you take the "pro-vaxxer" side?

Seems the folks in Indianapolis got it right when they replaced the DEF Header. Made it back to SC with no problems and put 350 miles on it today.

Rig goes to the dealer the end of the month for the end of warranty punch list which includes a slide issue (not a Schwintek slide) the is preventing me from using the dinette slide. The sheet metal ramp that lowers the slide to floor level buckled and is preventing the slide from fully extending. This happens to be the slide Jayco Factory Service adjusted in August 2020.

When a thread gets shut down by a mod can it still be viewed?

Yes a Closed can be viewed but cannot accept new posts. A deleted thread cannot be viewed. Deleted threads are normally duplicates of other threads in a different section of the forum.

I've been in a few RV assembly plants and dozens of auto assembly plants. Comparing the two, the RV ones would be a garage sale in a bad neighborhood and the autos are Walmarts.
The workers are paid by how many units they can shove out the door so they're incentive is NOT high quality.
