All recent 2016 Pinnacle owners.

I have been reading the FBTS posts and adding items to my PDI check list but would like to hear from all other new owners. Please post what you found on your New Pinnacle during PDI or right after that needed to be fixed. Since the models are all pretty much the same but floorplans this will give myself and all others who are getting ready for delivery items to add to the PDI inspection.
thanks
Rock

Rock,

If you have a "good" dealer there should be little or nothing. The only issue we had was the a/c and that was about 6 weeks later. I found nothing that needed correcting after we got home.

2016 Pinnacle PDI

Oldsmar looks like it is in Florida. If it is you might want to make sure your Pinnacle comes with three A/C units, if not, you might want to look at the recent posts about inadequate A/C cooling for the 2013, 14, 15 Pinnacle's.

Those were all on a different model. As far as I have seen there is no issue with FBTS

We bought through Colerain in Ohio. No issues, spent the better part of the morning going through PDI and everything checked out fine. No issues with cooling with ours. but it's the flsa floorplan.

That is great no problems. Even though u have the FLSA it is on the same production line and probably a lot of everything is the same being installed by the same people. Just curious since cooling seems to be a big issue on ur unit model and now they have a third a/c do u have any problems?

Never had an issue. We picked ours up in mid July and haven't seen any problems with cooling.

You just have to wonder why some units do not cool, others with slide problems or leveling problems. It almost seems more of a quality control issue. Take the a/c issue, why do some cool and some do not. Putting three a/c units on just does not seem right. I can see future power issues unless the third unit has its own 30 amp plug.

We have had our 2016 since the 15th of this month (so 11 days) and there were a lot of things that were missed by our dealer during PDI. Most of them were cosmetic (missing light covers, crack in pantry door, slice in vinyl ceiling, missing trim on slide, screw sticking out between door frame and wall etc.) and not a huge deal but there were a few that have cost us a bit more time and one that has actually created a larger problem for us.

The first is that the central vacuum was not installed correctly and was unusable. Those huge screws? Not supposed to be there. They get in the way of being able to put the vacuum bag on to that tube. The dealer had to remove the vacuum and find new screws to fit and then reinstall. This was not something anyone thought to check because the vacuum bag goes on the inside of the part that is in the basement.


Also, we seem to have an issues with our speakers. 50% of them have no sound coming from them so definitely check A, B & C and don't just assume they are all working if you hear sound - go and stand under each one. Half of mine work in each area.

One of our slides was wonky but that was an easy adjustment.

However, the biggest issue was that the caulking job on the shower was incomplete. 1/3 of the outside bottom of where the shower door tracks meet the fibreglass enclosure had zero silicone. The entire length inside of the tracks had zero silicone. So water was seeping out from under the tracks. Unfortunately this was not discovered until 4 showers had been had and there is now water damage as a result of it. Please check the caulking on yours because I would hate for this to happen to anyone else.

It just stops 2/3rds of the way across.


Congratulations on your Pinnacle! Except for the issues we have had we love everything else about it. We went with the RSQS with a queen bed.
