So, we drove today from Santa Fe, NM to Carlsbad NM for the night. It was in the 70's when we left SF but we knew it was going to be 100 in Carlsbad in the afternoon.
So, about 1/2 way to Carlsbad we turned on the generator as we drove and ran the air conditioner so we wouldn't have to play catchup once we got to the 100 degree weather.
It worked great for the next 1 1/2 hours or so. When we stopped for lunch just 60 miles from our destination it was 72 degrees inside the RV. Perfect.
But 20 miles later we noticed the A/C had stopped. The generator had stopped. So, I pulled over and started the Genset again. 5 mins later it stopped a second time. By this time we were just 13 miles from the CG so we let it go and kept driving.
When I pulled in to the CG I turned the genset on again so it could start running the A/C in the 104 degree heat while I did the paperwork. Only this time it stopped running in 30 seconds.
I know the Gen will not run on a 1/4 or less gas in the tank but we have 3/4 gas left in the tank.
It's good to know this is an issue since my warranty expires on the 26th of this month. But hey, what gives?
A month ago, I wisely made an appointment at my dealer for the week after we get home so that anything that turns up could still be worked on under warranty. But now this list is growing and growing.
This morning the levelers refused to give an all up signal. I called bigfoot and they told me to get on my back in the dirt to be sure all the pins were all the way up - they were and not one of them moved when I tried moving them by hand. But the all up signal was given after I finished that process.
So, now my dealer fix list is:
The big slide is out of sync top to bottom
The Bedroom TV the audio cuts out and turns off unexpectedly
The bigfoot levelers - check out the pins for proper action
The genset - cuts off unexpectedly
When I made the appointment a month ago before we left my only issue was the slide adjustment.
It can take a month or so to get an appointment at my dealership. So, I made the appointment a month early so I'd be assured of getting in before the warranty expired.
I hate for all this stuff to go wrong - but I don't use the RV in the hot Texas Summer months and have all summer for them to fix it all under the final 2-weeks of warranty. I'd rather have it turn up now, then next fall when you use the RV again for a long trip.
We've been pretty lucky so far with not much big stuff going wrong.
