We took delivery in May and have now had the chance to complete 3 short "shakedown" trips. The purpose being to thoroughly go over and use every piece, part, system, and item onboard to be sure all is working as expected before taking longer trips.
Since we often only hear about the real lemons and major problems, I thought it may be interesting to report back that, so far, our experiences and results have been positive! No major issues....of course, now I probably just jinxed myself
So, yes, there were a few minor issues that I am working on but if we don't have anymore than this, I will consider us blessed!
1. This one freaked me out a little....on our trip home from the dealer we noticed that the thin strip of carpet between the cab and the coach was soaking wet (of course missed it at PDI). After numerous unsuccessful attempts to re-create the problem (spraying water on top, underneath, spraying water on slide, driving in rain, etc)...I am thinking it is one of two things...a) Slides were soaking wet when brought in at the dealer...so maybe water just ran down. or (b) dealer did wash the tile floor just before we left and got it wet. At least I hope that is what it was! Will keep watching to be sure.
2. Most of the time cannot get the fresh water gravity fill to work...water just fills up the hose but won't go into the tank. Suspect it is a pinched or overly long vent line but haven't had time to dig deeper. As luck would have it, it didn't act this way at the PDI.
3. Outside shower leaks badly when turned on, but not when off. Looks like the hose is just not tight but haven't been able to get it tighter. Again, should have caught at PDI but I just plain missed checking it.
4. Low point water drain leaks (hot side). Result is that the system slowly loses pressure over time and when pump is on, it will cycle every 30 mins or so. Should be a simple fix I hope. Missed at PDI because it was raining and didn't notice the small drip underneath
But, that is all...nuisance items to be sure and I wish I didn't have to mess with them but all should be simple fixes. So, hopefully, we have a "good one"!!
