We purchased our TT a little over a month ago from Gander RV in Thornburg, VA. The only positive aspect of that buying experience was our Sales person Michelle. Regarding the RV, there were a number of quality issues that were immediately visible. First, there was moisture in the right rear taillight. The dealer installed a battery that smelled like rotten eggs. I didn't know where the smell was coming from when they were prepping the RV as there were other R v's nearby and I thought it might have been something left in a black holding tank. A couple of days later, I discovered it was a bad battery.. I could hear a sizling sound coming from the battery box. When I opened the Box, I could see the battery was sizzling and smoking. So I disconnected it right away. Way. The dealer met me on a Sunday while I was in route to my first trip with the camper and replace the battery.
Other issues included the wood paneling peeling away from the side of the dynette. The piece of panrling was clearly too long, and was buckling at the end. Several staples were used on that end to hold it down, but in spite of the manufacturer's efforts it came off. Also, the hinges used for the under-bed storage area in the master bedroom were too weak. They broke after only a couple of days of use as they were not strong enough to handle the weight of the mattress on the lid combined with the force of the struts. I replaced them with place them with residential door hinges.
Various pieces of trim were pulling away or hanging down from the ceiling or the ceiling wall joint. Two of the windows windows were oddly shaped it to the point where the screens would not stay in.
Finally, I won't be the fitst one to report that there are issues with draining the Gray water tanks. Thanks. The drainage is extremely slow, taking nearly an hour to drain the tanks. If you leave the gray tank valve open as many do while they're at the campsite, water will still accumulate in the tanks. This is a known issue, so I'm not sure why it hasn't been fixed.
This camper is equipped with docking lights on the front cap. The docking light on the right side was peeling away from the camper. Not sure why this was not caught at the factory nor at the dealership. At the dealership. I had them fix it before taking delivery.
Finally, someone at the dealership had removed the 50" TV as well as the cover is spare tire cover. However, they came up with the TV and the spare tire cover once we threatened to walk away from the deal.
