Astoria with major problems

I had my 2011 Astoria less than 24hrs. when major problems developed. The slide motor and switch on the slide behind the drivers seat started to emit a burning odor. The slide would not retract until I cut the power and let it cool for a couple of hours. The rear drivers side leveler would not retract until I used the manual button to fully retract. The rubber molding at the base of the front windshield was coming loose, on the ride down to the dealer the drivers side mirror came loose and almost fell off. The passenger side fuel door is not aligned correctly, the dinnete table has no way of staying locked in as you travel down the road. All this in less than 24hrs. of owernship. It's going on two weeks and I have no coach to use. Does anyone else out there ever experience such problems in so short of time?

Hi!

Wow- that is brutal!
Did you buy the rig new or used?

Ive had my serrano since mon and have been working on it non stop. Incredible poor workmanship but I am making headway. Found a water leak in rear wall from a killer rain we just had. Now I will reseal the universe and hope I get it. Leaving this coming mon for about a month and I am bringing tools.

Not much use in your case but:
Lets see, the dealer had our 2002 Newmar for 115 days out of the first 305 days of ownership and it still took a trip to Nappanee to get it fixed correctly. Some of the special order items didn't get installed. Luckily our state laws require the manufacturer to pay transportation costs for safety defects if the vehicle has to be transported over 100 miles. From the West coast to IN is MUCH further. The safety issue was a 12,500# front axle but it weighed 12,050 when we filled the tanks and BEFORE we ever loaded it.

Once fixed it's been, great so hang in there!!

Every manufacturer makes mistakes or puts out a sub par unit. Get it fixed and enjoy.

I'm really shocked-
I've never bought a new RV, but if I did, I think I'd expect it to be trouble free...
Just like anything else I bought new!

Guess I'm just a babe in the woods...
