Kodiak Cub Owners?

Hey fellow Cubs! I thought I’d start a thread for us Cub owners.

We recently received our 2018 Kodiak Cub 175BH. We are excited to use it now that the weather is getting better.

One issue were dealing with on our brand new Cub 175BH is the trim popping off. The front interior wall has a big bubble in it as well where its coming loose. Im guessing due to our recent weather changes. Good thing for the warranty. Anyone else had trim issues on a brand new Cub?

We should be picking up our new 175BH this week. I will keep an eye out for that trim issue. Anything else we should look out for when we do our walk through?

I am eagerly looking forward to our first shake down cruise in a few weeks!

Congratulations. No, the trim has been the only issue. One thing worth getting added is a battery disconnect switch though. I wish the Cubs came with one. It makes disconnecting the battery much easier.

I just unscrew the negative wire.

Brought our new Kodiak Cub 175BH home yesterday. Jeep GC and hitch worked great.
Our interior trim looks good so far, no bubbling or pulling away from the wall.
Next up is a quick shakedown cruise next weekend!

Water heater bypass

Just got my 175bh. Does anyone know how to get to the water heater bypass? The water heater appears to be sealed up under the bed.

Welcome to the forums!

Take the mattress off the bed and remove the screws holding the plywood down? They don't always make it easy to find. BTW the screws will be a square drive Robertson screws bit #2 if memory serves me.

At my dealership, they unscrewed the box panel to the right once you open the pass through door. I’m surprised they don’t put a cabinet door on there to access it easier. I might modify mine to make it easier to access. Hope this helps.
