.. and other problems. We just got our 2012 Lacrosse 301RES last week and did a shakedown test this week. Before I refer the issues to the dealer I'd like to see if others have had similar problems:
1) Refrigerator will only work on 120V with settings of ON, and AUTO. I tried ON and GAS and it seems to work as the CHECK light goes on for a second as so (indicating the propane hasn't yet ignited) and then goes out, but the fridge does not cool. In fact it ran on 120V for 4 days, switched to propane for drive home and all the frozen stuff melted.
2) The Power Convertor seems normal until 4-5 lamps are ON, and then the next lamp starts a buzzing noise in the convertor compartment. Switch light off and noise disappears. As more load is drawn the noise becomes louder, eventually (with Audio System, fireplace and most lights on) it's unbearable (sounds like you're in a small toilet with the exhaust fan running). Didn't open up the convertor so don't know if it is a fan or if it's a transformer humming. (other posts seem to indicate this convertor (WF-8900?) has a cooling fan.
3) Insufficient water flow to use the use the shower with the head on the wall mount (i.e. water doesn't reach you). Other taps and outside shower don't have this problem).
4) the E-Stone counter top has a substantial crack (and surface damage) behind the faucet. Is this material repairable or should I insist on a replacement countertop?
In general we were really pleased with the new trailer and like almost everything about it (except access for making the bed, and cracking my head on the medicine cabinet when trying to use the inadequate sink
). We got many compliments from fellow campers.
