My 6 month old

I have been living in my 2008 Bambi Safari SE for 6 months now, have camped at most of the Central Texas State Parks as well as West Texas Big Bend, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming. Most of this has been trouble free. The only troubles found have been the following,
The rubber insert on the belt line on the street side rock guard came off on a recent trip and was lost on the road. The stainless steel insert to the refridgerator door keeps sliding out. A small leak at the commode,(was easy to fix just needed to tighten the hose going to the commode). The front vent will open and close, on dry days. The hot water heater would not light after a recent trip up to the deer camp, I unplugged a few wires outside at the water heater and replugged them in and now it is working. Most of these problems are small and I am very pleased with how the Bambi has held up to the many miles I have put on it in the past 6 months. The number one thing I would like to modify is the rear emergency window, I wish I could open it up, like the rear curb side window. The dinning room table has some sharp edges, it would be nice to have some trim or make a new table that does not have the sharp edges. I believe that I will keep the little trailer for some time

Sounds like your Bambi may be suffering from some road shock and vibration.

Balanced running gear is a must.
