Stripped RV

Hi All,
I just bought a 2014 Georgetown 329DS and I think the previous owner may have had it repo'd because of some of the items missing. (Cut cable tv cables under DVD player, missing stereo receiver, fridge shelves missing ect) I am trying to figure out if the sewer dump hose is missing, I have looked everywhere. My last trailer had it in the rear bumper but class A rear bumper is different.

Welcome to the forum from mid-California, have you opened the compartment where the dump control valves are some store the hoses in there. Some have also added a pvc tube under the coach to hold the hose(slinky).

It's no consolation compared to the other things you have missing and other problems that you might find but the sewer kit does not actually come with the coach....its a "gimme" kit to thank you for buying brand new....in fact the GT does not even give you a place to put it, you have to rig your own.

I don't think it was repo'ed, just that the previous owner took out what wasn't nailed down. If you bought it at a dealer than shame on you for not noticing the fridge was missing shelves and there was cut wires and missing DVD player. A sewer hose is $30, wouldn't you prefer a new one anyways vs. using someone else's? Yuk!

Does sound like a repo from the guy who used to live next door to me.

When he left after being kicked out for non-payment of his mortgage he took out the entire kitchen, the entire bathroom, all the wires, all the copper pipes including the baseboard heaters (busting the plaster walls to get it all out); before disappearing.

A friend of mine bought a year-old repo'ed 35' Class A, and the previous owner had taken the shocks off!

Neither he, nor the dealer, noticed it until after his first time out, and he saw the holes where the shock mounted on the passenger front side.

He'd never driven a class A until the first trip of about fifty miles, and assumed that the bounce and sway were normal.

I take the sewer hoses, water hoses, power cord and everything else that's mine when I trade in. Last time I took the TV.

The dealer's give you the same amount no matter whats missing. (appliances and AC units excluded) Condition makes no difference either. They look in a book and that's what you get.
They might make your trade sound better by increasing payments on your new unit but in the end you still get what the blue book says, no more and probably less. That's probably what happened to yours and the dealer didn't replace the missing items. A repoed unit would likely be in much worse shape.

Thank you to everyone for your help. I will buy a new hose and mount a 4" PVC pipe to the frame with a lid to store it. I have not come across any items so far that I was not aware of when I bought it, not because the dealer pointed it out but because I came across them when checking it out. I think I think I got a pretty good deal on it and was willing to fix these items for the approx. $17k less than Nadaguides was appraising it at. There is going to be a learning curve for me moving from a 98' trailer to a 2014 class A.

Thanks for the help
