I know this is not a new topic but I thought I would share some of my experience picking up the new TT. I ordered this unit it and it came in about 3 days before I picked it up. I 'm pretty sure it wasn't touched until right before I got there.
First off the dealer was good...Apparently I got the owners son to do the check out and he clearly was new as I pointed out things he was incorrect about.
For example my TTs spare tire is mounted to the bumper and blocks a rear storage compartment. He told me to access the storage, I needed to loosen the bolts to the tire mount and slide it out of the way.
I looked at him funny and after about 5 seconds of looking at it I pointed out there is a pin that when removed the tire swings down and out of the way. He said loosening the bolts was how he saw the service guys do it....I thought well then they are idiots too.
Overall all the TT seemed in good shape...no obvious issues. However just before I was ready to leave I gave it one more look over. Inside I noticed one track on the slide out was racked. I could see right away what the issue was. The guide on the slide out itself was mounted crooked. I went and found someone pointed out...they got the service manager looked at it....and after a long while and multiple conversations finally they got it fixed to my satisfaction. To there credit they were very polite and were willing to get it fixed to the point where I was satisfied.
After sitting in my driveway for a couple of days all the 12v systems stopped working.. You can read it in more detail here. New Outback inverter issue?
Bottom line the inverter went bad after 2 days. I ended up just replacing it myself since to take it back to the dealer would burn as much fuel as the darn inverter costs and I needed the TT for a trip that weekend.
A minor screw up was they had the DVD player wired wrong to the TV...I could see their error and understood how it could be made but really how many of these must they install every week. Since I worked in broadcasting and engineering for years it was a quick fix.
Lastly and this isn't really a construction issue but more of a BTW you should know this issue. The furnace made a horrible smell when first fired up. No other TT made this much stink but more concerning was the CO/ propane leak alarm would go off for about 30 seconds overtime it came on. After about 10 uses of the furnace is stopped setting off the alarm but the stink is still there although it seems to be getting better. I read the manual and it did say something about burning paint off for the first 10-15 minutes of use...I guess that's it. I hope the smell eventually goes away.
The only other issue I have has is not really with the TT but the load bearing/sway control hitch. The mounts shifted on the frame of the TT and would not allow the bars to be installed. I didn't have a big enough wrench with me so I had to bang them back into place with a hammer. That got me home but I noticed they shifted again. I'll be contacting the manufacturer to see what the torque specs are on the bolts.
So that's my tale....not the worst experience I have heard but since my last TT had zero issue it was a bit disappointing.
