Since it is covered by the warranty I would visit an RV sales that handles your brand and have them fix it. Tinkering with it yourself can void the warranty. This is something that should have been checked by the dealer just before you took possession. We are happy you joined us! We are somewhat like a huge extended RVing family, and have an annual national rally so we can meet each other face-to-face.
