Firstly The new 15 will have a full one year warranty on the coach appliances and one year of coach net to help you with a warranty or roadside issues. The Ford Chassis 3 year 36 month warranty is transferrable.
The 15 will have kingsize bed and the coach is 8" longer than an early 14.
A 15 will have a 15,000 btu A/C not 13.5. A 15 will have electric and gas water heat capability. A 15 will have LED's under the awning. A 15 will have the better steps. The front cap on a 15 is redesigned it will be beige not dark brown the brown caps have windshield leaking issues. A 15 will have the upgraded shower door. Sometime in 15 the 2 options became standard equipment that is the leveling jacks and the bedroom TV. The things that would be a deal breaker to me is if it had the 13.5A/C no electric water heat and the early shower curtain and early front cap. A lot of the changes I have listed were interim changes made during the 2014 run but a 2015 will have them all. The A/C in a 30DS is a weak point the most recent 30DS will have an A/C with a 18000 btu, nice but not a deal breaker.

2014 Forest River FR3 30DS
CHF, Safe-T-Plus, 5 Star Tune
Soon to install UltraTrac, Trac bar
Hey guys. Long time lurker on here. Just picked up a used 2014 (2nd half model year) FR3 30DS 5 days ago in LA. First ever camper/motorhome. Today, when I was getting it ready for its maiden voyage, I brought the slide in and it caught the all vinyl flooring, ripping it in the process. The unit was purchased June 16, 2014 so its just out of warranty (although from what I can tell that wouldnt matter as it looks like FR's warranty is NOT transferrable.) Obviously the main slide pushed down hard enough against the flooring on the way in that it balled up and then ripped the vinyl.
Can anyone help me as to how I should pursue this?? I contacted FR but havent received anything back yet. Anyone else have this issue? Is it because the slide needs adjusted? Can it be adjusted by someone with some mechanical ability? I feel like I could find multiple floor experts to repair the vinyl, my concern is having this happen again after its repaired. Does anyone put duct tape down along the floor to help the slide not catch anything?
Looking for any and all help from the mounds of knowledge on this forum. Thanks in advance.
Picking up our 2014 FR3 30DS next week. This will be our first RV. I've read through this forum and have found it extremely helpful. Knowing the issues/potential issues in advance will really help us get started out on the right foot... Thanks to all!
