Also, does a triple axle trailer tow any better or reduce pin weight?

Good lookin rig.

Just because the dealer has a bad rep doesn't mean you need any further dealings with them. Contact the mfg and get warranty work done someplace else.

I have towed my friends tripple and I must say it's a lot better than my 2 axle. Less pin wgt and is more stable. My next one will be a 3 axle.

I haven't gotten to take it on a trip yet. Oregon dunes at the end of the month will be the maiden voyage. I noticed yesterday that neither AC was working. I'll check the fuses today to see if any are blown. Any thing else I should check?
That dealer is 300 miles away from me so I wouldn't be going to see them anyway. I'm out in the sticks but did find a mobile rv repair business that will come to me when I need them.

You pulled it with a 2500 series truck right? Any issues at all with that tow vehicle when you were bringing her home? Also, what part of Cali are you in?

Thanks!

Also, what did you pay for your trailer? if you feel comfortable giving out that info I would appreciate it. You can private message me if you wish. I am in CA as well and I am wondering if they cost more being here..

Really nice looking rig.

We also purchased our first toy hauler from worst rv. Our microwave caught on fire, our gas leaked, and worst of all they didn't install my brake controller properly which i didn't notice for over 2 years!!!! 2 years of driving without trailer brakes.

NEVER AGAIN.

Cmon man!! How are you going to drive for two years without trailer brakes and not know about it? Don't you ever test your trailer brakes before you haul your trailer? Astounds me that someone is going blame thier ignorance and stupidity on someone else. Not that I condone or support "worst" RV but take a little ownership on your own mistakes when they are clearly in your power to remedy before you go and blame someone else.

First time owner / operator. I thought they didn't work and something was a muck but the manual slider switch activated the brakes so I figured that's just how it was. The cable that connected the brake on my truck to activating trailer brake never was connected. The manual brake switch was.

When you have nothing to compare to, it is pretty simple to overlook. Now that I've driven with trailer brakes it is very obvious and I'll never overlook that again.
