First Trip in Eagle 330 RLTS

We just got back from a week in Destin, Fla. and found some problems with our new Rv. 1-Black Tank leaked at the 2/3rds full mark, 2-Found a drawer in kitchen split out, 3- Found Screws loose on slides on the outside trim and some were missing ,4- Found moisture drops under slideouts, 5-Wife broke a closet slide latch bracket,6-My gutters on both sides have a swags in them which allow water from A/c to fill up gutters and water runs out on slides. Thats the negative now the positve, My dealer assured me he will have all problems fixed and I'll be ready to go again in 4 days. The only thing that has me concerned is the moisture under slides. If there is condensation forming under the slides how would they fix this? My dealer could not answer this for me yet. What does everybody think and has anyone else had this problem?

On my 330rlts the gutters sag directly above the front of the living room slides on both sides. Maybe there is a weak point because the trailer is so long there is not enough support for the large openings on each side.

The black tank spayer leaked the first time out. Saturated the insulation in the under belly. Dealer tightened the fitting and replaced the insulation.

Didn't me to alarm anybody. I'm not new to camping so I new there would be some issues that would have to be worked out. Service manger told me the gutters were a simple issue to fix.
The black water flush is were my black water leaked also. At least when I tried to use it water leaked alot more so I didn't use it after that. Curious, two 330 RLTS leaking at the same spot. One thing I didn't like, I'm a kind of fix it now type and because of the underbelly cover I couldn't get to the fittings to tighten them. Not a major problem but still a little agrivating.
We still had a wounderful time on vacation and the room in the 330RLTS was just unreal. We have two A/C's which in the Florida sun was great, the Rv stayed very comfortable and temps reached almost 100 degrees a couple of days.

On my last camper and on this one the slide awnings always collected water after a rain. Called Camping World one time to see if they could recommend a cure, there solution beach balls under the awnings. After that I never worried about it again, I just tried to make a habit of running my slides in about 3/4 ways after a rain to dump the water.
I still believe we have a great RV in the 330 model.

You are right the room is unreal, I have the 33rlds and we couldn't be more happier. The difference between mine and yours is we don't have the bedroom slide and we have 2 couches instead of the two chairs. The Jayco trailers are so nice and comfy. Ernie

We also like our trailer. (our 5th rv) We have 2 recliners and one couch instead if two couches.
I know that things need to be addressed when you buy a new rv.
It's just a little irritating to spend that much money and the first trip out have problems because someone at the factory didn't do their job.

You should be getting a NHTSA recall notice about the stabilizers.
