Brake light malfunction

Picked up our 2016 Newmar 3518 from the dealer and within 5 miles the brake malfunction light came on,I cycled the key and the light went off only to come back on within 3 miles,took to the dealer to check the brake light issue and the relay had no power.so they checked the fuse box under the hood and several fuses were not pushed in all the way,after that I drove it home and the light is off.any one else run into this issue

An example of quality control and checking things out during manufacture.

LVRVLUVR, depends, some coach manufacturers move that fuse box a little to get more clearance above the radiator.

Well it may be a chassis mfr problem but with what they charge for these rigs quality control should go over them from top to bottom both before they leave the factory and the dealer has a responsibility in this as well. JMHO!

Both, it's the factory engine compartment fuse box except Newmar turns the box sideways for easier access,I will be keeping a close watch on this for a while,seems that it would be hard to believe the fuse are backing out of the slot
