1st long trip, issues

We just returned from a 3 month, 6,800 mile trip to Alabama and Florida to get away from the Ohio winter. Overall truck and trailer performed very well. Minor issues, the fender skirt on the right side of the trailer started to blow off when the screws pulled out. We ended up taking it off. Several of the windows were not installed correctly from the factory and the crank mechanism would not function properly. All issues were corrected under warranty by Indian River RV in Sebastian, FL. They are an outstanding resource. This was our first trip to Florida, it will not be our last.

We have all had items go wrong with our RV, I have had the same Fender Skirt trouble and I changed some of the screws to add a nut on the back side….Since you went 6,800 miles and only had a few items go wrong, That's not to bad….The roads in California will Shake every cabinet door open and loosen a lot of screws… I check every screw after every long trip and always find some loose or gone…Good Luck on your next trip..

6,800 miles sounds like you saw a lot of country side.
