Reason for water entering basement storage

Looking under my coach yesterday I saw screws left laying sideways on the angle iron frame when the flooring was installed. This leaves a 1/8” - 1/4” gap so water can easily enter to destroy the flooring.

I’ll look elsewhere under the coach for more of the same mistakes made during assembly of the coach

I noticed that separation below the driver side door of the main storage compartment a couple of months ago. No separation on the passenger side, but I get a bit of leaking there from the seals around the door.

I am taking my 33.2 to the factory service center next month and will have them deal with that gap, along with a broken bunk support, slide adjustment, and an inverter upgrade.

Can I ask what is a "slide adjustment"?

Verifying the slide system is working properly. We have an early production model that had some initial issues, all of which were addressed by Thor to my total satisfaction. Because of that history I bring it back to the factory service center every couple of years to have them verify everything is still working correctly. No adjustments were required this visit which shows the system is stable and working as it should.

Ahh, thanks for that description.
