Unhappy

First when we picked up the New unit.They said they had gone over EVERYTHING! the next day I tried the generator,wouldn't stay running more than 15-20 seconds.took it back,mechanic said he had run it for 20 minuets.Hmmmm how come hourmeter had "0" time on it? 20 minuets would of shown 3+ tenths.
Second, Serrius radio said "check antenna " Shorted.
Side door, bottom ball for shock strut loose and wearing hole oblong.
They finally checked radio ordered an antenna and a part for door 3+ weeks ago.
I think they stall as long as possible,thinking you will either give up on them and fix it yourself, which I could of done 2-3 months ago,but tried the "warranty" thing first.

Today I was told the delay was caused by FR not approving the repair? still no parts??
I guess this is what I should expect after spending 70K on a FR Sunseeker

Call FR directly. Time after time we hear this here only to find out the delay is on the dealer's end. Waiting for parts is one thing, not approving warranty repairs doesn't make sense.

The part you are looking for is a Song Chuan relay . It can be purchased directly from Mouser ( great electronics supplier ) for less than $3.50 + shipping ( Link below). If i were you I would look for a Potter and Brumfield or Zettler cross to insure you do not have this problem in the future.

Tried the number,got the wrong person at first then on to chasing answering machines. I figure they just said it was F Rivers fault to cover their ___
Now the 3 month free trial of serious radio is over and the radio never even worked.

I spent 4 months waiting on a part. Dealer said it was FR. When I called FR they said they had it and did I want it sent to another repair shop? Of course I said yes.

Who did you leave a message with? They get a lot of calls everyday for different things so it may take a day to get back with you.
