2017 Fleetwood Storm

Anybody have one and what were your initial problems that needed to be fixed.

Found some screws poking thru the top of the slide from the window shades and some how lets in water dealer is working on this now and the engine cover was very poorly mounted and off center good thing i wanted to take it off and look at the motor not to mention the floor was loose or not supported these issues are a matter of very poor construction they can be fixed but dam good thing i started crawling all over this coach this not my first new coach but I recommend any one buying new go over it with a fine tooth comb.
just saying unless you open close crawl around and inspect every square inch in the first days of ownership you will spend to much time later getting things fixed. The fuel line for the Genny was routed under the frame instead of up and over I thought that was a hazard having it right there behind the front tire Iím having it rerouted by the dealer. Just some food for thought. I really like this layout so Iím making sure the dealer is fixing every little thing. Then I will deal with it later with some mods of my own.

Check the fuel nozzle. Someone used self tapping screws in the retaining ring too small for the holes. Nozzle fell out during refueling. Big mess.

Relay box in the back Bay was loose. No screws holding it.

Rear window frame installed wrong. Body pulled away from the frame and leaked during first rain.

Slide rollers loose. Needed tightening.

Front end not aligned. Suggest doing CHF, also.

Heater started short cycling. Turned out to be a bad 12v wire.

Kitchen sink leaked. Drain cap crossthreaded.

Fridge was not cooling. Had a blocked fan.

For some reason FW installed flaps forward of the rear tires. When you drive they rub on the tires. Soon you will have holes in them. Had to rig brackets to hold them off the tires.

Latest is the On Demand water heater won't come on unless I turn both sink faucets on. Used to work fine.

There have been other small things but was able to fix those.

Hope yours was put together better than mine.

Also forgot, get yourself a couple of Flow-Rite battery fill kits. For some reason FW installed two of the batteries in an impossible position to top off the water. The kits make it a 5 minute job. I don't think FW cares if we have to maintain these things.

We have a 2017 36D Bought in february at Lazydays a few minor issues. most serious issue was small frig in outdoor kitchen would not get cooler then 45-50 degrees. Didn't notice till we got home to PA. Lazydays said we would have to return to FL. Said not for a $130.00 frig. Called Fleetwood service rep there said go buy new frig send them receipt, i did got check in two weeks thought that made sense. Also small shelves in pantry were cut to small they sent new ones 1/2" larger. Other then that went on 5 trips over summer all good. heading to Fl in winter hope all will be good.
