I always said it's a good thing they never hired me to be that trailer review guy that has the articles / reviews in Trailer Life. They'd all have bad marks. I haven't found an RV yet that would pass a thorough inspection. That said though, we know how to make them better in our own shop, so that's what we do.

yes that is terrible quality. What makes it all worse is -- we make them even worse when we hook them up to our trucks/fire up the engines and drag them down these bumpy rough beat up highways, shaking them apart a little at a time.

We have a 2014 30 foot DSRE and feel lucky to have not had any trouble in fact never went back for any warranty work. But I have been seeing a lot of talk about heaters and duct work and bad workmanship so I will go check mine. Living in the south we have not used our heater, but on our inspection the dealer did light it. I think our dealer (a personal friend) may have fix stuff before we picked up our TT. I am a very "picky" about trim and fit and the dealer did fix a couple fit issues.

How many people do you think walk by this trailer during the build and saw this and look the other way

The filter for my model is in a boxed in area in the rear storage area. You have to crawl in and take one of the screwed in place walls off just to get to it. The housing needs a spacial wrench to remove the lower part to change a filter. At least they included it. My problem was, and I'm sure it was done on purpose, that some of the wiring and water lines were wrapped around the filter so tight you couldn't get the wrench on the housing. I managed to disconnect and move the wiring behind the filter. Had to cut the hose and then had to get the PAX crimping tool, @ $50, and some of the steel rings that are crimped down to anchor the hose onto the fittings. Wish I could take that money out of that jerks hide.

Since it is so hard to get to the filter I plan on permanently by-passing it and use the throw away inline hose filters that are suppose to last a year. About $16 at WalMart. Besides for storage ya just disconnect them from the hose and bring inside for cold weather.
