Help please.

Purchased a new Sunset Trail 210fk on Monday 4/16/18
I need the extreme weather package . It's not on paper work.
Nor is there a sticker decal on the left side of door above the 3 year warranty sticker.
But sales crew said oh yeah its extreme weather package.
I took pictures , and there isn't one anyplace.
Plus I found problems after 1 day of having it.
Bathroom door has a tear it, top left corner , I asked for a new door , they said NO.
We'll glue it. Better not be shoddy work.
The face plate for the slide was half tacked in. They said it comes off to access pully motor. I said it shouldn't be loose.
You couldn't see it unless you were sitting at the table on the left side and looked up.
Mattress is a brick wall. It has to go.
Key would not fit in exterior rear kitchen. A lot of glitches going on.
I took the trailer back. Better not be there too long. Any opinions you guys ? Really getting an uneasy feeling.

Does it have electric tank heaters, there would be a switch for it on your control panel. Their weather package is called Polar tech I believe. If it has these then yes it has the cold weather package. As for the fits and finishes - every brand has them, it's no different when you buy a new house and ask the builder to come back in and touch up some defects. It's something we all go through.

Unhappy My please help questions

Did these guys try to pull a fast one over on me ?

I see on other models the extreme weather package decal is stuck to left side of door. I have pictures , and it's not there. I am going back in the morning , and if a decal has been put there. I have pictures to prove they added it.

Yes , I can understand cosmetic issues pop up. But on day 1.

Everything else seems OK , so far.

They were working on the cosmetic issues today. Have to get a new lock for exterior kitchen. Better not take long.

My please help questions

Yes , it is suppose to have that Jeff. So they said. I just want to make sure it's not a lemon.

Why does this model have to be skirted when it's sitting in the yard.
Pain in the butt to unskirt it when you want to take it out.

Honestly, regardless if they call it "extreme package" "polar" "4 seasons" "Artic" they're not insulated like your home & were not built for "extreme" cold weather, so there are precautions you must take. You need to run the furnace along with electric heaters, as most rvs have at least 1 furnace duct into the enclosed underbelly to warm tanks & plumbing. Most likely in that model the fresh water tank is under the bed or at least inside so should be fairly safe. You'll need a heated water hose or at least heat tape & foam insulation on it as well as the faucet, in "extreme" cold fill fresh tank & disconnect hose. Disconnect sewer hose in "extreme" cold & only use when necessary.
No skirting is necessary & unless it was very well insulated wouldn't help enough to go to the trouble.
Others will probably chime in on things I've missed, but just realize it's not a house.

Polar tec gets you upgraded insulation in the floors, walls and ceilings.
Research the net.

It's an overall combination of options that make it more suitable for cold weather use than the average RV - like windows, tank heaters, large furnace

My please help questions

The camp trailer will not be in sub zero Temps . So I should be fine for that situation. But I will take all the precautions mentioned.
Thankyou.

Tried to get the TV to turn on. It wouldnt. Salesman said it has to have power to it. Well if your out in the woods camping , and you have no power , the TV won't function. It won't work. Is this an accurate question/ answer ?

My friend has a 2018 T@b @Trailer. And her TV turns on without power source coming into her trailer. Feeding off of battery ?

I am getting more confused.

I apologies for all my foolish newbie questions you guys.
All help is appreciated.

If you don't have a TV that runs on DC/battery, then yes, your trailer has to be plugged into the power pole.
Don't feel bad about asking questions. Everybody on this forum has been a newbie at one time. It's just that some of them tend to forget that.

You might want to call Crossroads and give your camper's serial number to find out if your camper has the Polar package...I think that would be the best way to find out...I don't know if I would trust the dealer at this point...Thit web site might have some information about your dealer, bad or good...
