Smile Yukon Owner

Just bought a Yukon 400RL. I realize it is a brand new model, just wondering if any other Yukon owners on here yet?

First trip

Got about 600 miles on the Yukon and left rear wheel sheared the lug bolts off and came off taking the side of t the side of the trailer. Right rear had 2sheared studs. Not a good start for Dutchmen

Dutchmen.

Bought a 400RL on Halloween. We bought it because it is a great layout and nicely done. First time out and find out that the shower is plumbed backwards. Cold is hot and hot is cold. Also find the same with gray and black water tanks. Pull the handle to dump the black water, and gray comes out and vice versa.
Nice quality control.

Update, The dealer fixed the axle and seems ok. No more problems with it. The trailer has been back at the dealer going on 9 weeks now. The front of the kitchen slide is being repaired for the 3rd time. The rear of the trailer wasn't properly attached to the frame and was moving causing exterior damage. In for the second time trying to get this repaired. The bed slide has gouged the floor and waiting to be repaired and a list of many other minor items. We have had to cut 3 trips short and havent had use of the trailer most of the time since we bought it. I just hope this is our last time at the dealer and they can finally get it all repaired properly.

Sorry to hear about all of the issues with both of you. The best advice I can give is the PDI checklists that are on this website. Once you leave, it takes forever for service.

Again, sorry to hear about your issues. Hope you get them fixed and get back on the road to enjoy!

You should be able to pretty easily remove the faucets from the wall and disconnect and reconnect supply lines correctly.

Kitchen Drawer Waste Baskets Identification

Hey fellow Yukoners! I take possession of my 399ML next week. I found a used 2021 for a great price (Story is; original owner had the unit delivered to their storage, delivery company damaged the unit and didn't disclose, owners found the damage and returned it and filed lawsuit).
Give me a couple weeks and will post good and bad, hopefully all good
The unit is missing the kitchen waste baskets or bedroom hamper bins, does anyone have these on their units and can take a picture of the basket label so I can replace them? I see them on YouTube walk-thru's but cannot identify them.
Thanks in advance!

Make sure you do a comprehensive pre-delivery check on the unit. ‘Nuff said?

Thank you for the advice Frank!
What did you encounter with your purchase? You sound pretty disgruntled.

Not disgruntled but savvy! My first two RV’ s were Dutchmen and both were great. The second one, the 2016, developed a soft floor doe to failure of the materials the floor is made of (board covered foam) then after the disaster here in Florida on November 11th, the RV was totaled and we ending up buying a Solitude.

I’ve been on this site for a long time and know about the issues and how to prevent them...there are LOADS of very savvy people here and everyone would recommend a very thorough PDI. As a matter of fact, several here have developed PDI checklists (do a search) developed for folks like you in order to guard against the pitfalls some of us have encountered.

Once you pick your new RV up from the dealership, you pretty much fall into the realm of waiting in line for service which takes your RV out of commission

Ive been in the 399ML 1-week now, the PDI only brought to light one item which they fixed right away (Thanks Frank!). The Tech was very helpful and honest. First night I brought it home was a hail storm, but the Yukon survived with no damage. Others in the park were not as lucky. The only thing I would mention at this point is the trim is put on with nail gun a little to hard. My first trip I had molding coming loose in various places. Purchased a cheap cordless gun and am fixing them as they come loose. Everything else seems to be holding up. I still do not have an answer to the waste basket dilemma and would greatly appreciate any help with the identification of the correct one! Thanks!
