Gingsnap,

Do you have a Ford or Chevy? What's the problem with the transmission? If you donít know the problem, would you describe the conditions?

Search the forum. I think ford went to a new 6 speed and were having vibration issues.

Very happy with our 2014 3170 ds. 10,000 mi in two round trips up Ca to Id Mt and Wy. Lived in it all Summer in Wy. Very comfortable. Sunseeker gets my vote for the best of the several rvs we've owned.

gingersnap....

I may had missed it. Is it a chevy or ford? with the chevy we are getting excellent service from Hardy in Dallas. They also run a truck shop so a 4500 chassis is no big deal.

Great to hear good reports on the Sunseeker. We did a 7,100 mile trip this summer and did not have a single issue with the MH. Would do it again in a heart beat!

Gingersnap has a 2300 on a Chevy chassis.


We didn't start using the 2016 Ford chassis' until April so anything before that wouldn't have been effected.

Thanks for starting this thread!
Great post

Bad tranny on a Chevy?
I think there was a recall on the 2012-14's for torque convertor ???
I have a 2015 chassis- so far so good.
6 spd tranny seems good.
