We picked the Sunseeker up from A & S RV Center, The slide out motors were wired backwards, #1 towards drive #2 towards rear, which was giving the slide out controller headaches. They corrected that problem and re-programmed the end points.
While the gap at the bottom is still noticeable, it is a whole lot better than before (about 1" at the bottom front) and all the seals finally make good contact with the cabin.
The faulty hot water heater electronic ignition module was changed out so the water heater works fine running on propane now.
We had noticed how the sound on Jensen Dash radio/navigation system
when we would hit a bump. They were having trouble duplicating the problem so they decided to give a CD a try, well the unit wouldnt read a cd, so they warrantied the old one and installed a brand new one.
Hopefully these are the last of the problems with your new motorhome, especially seeing as we picked it up on May 5 and this weekend will be our maiden voyage.
It is really a sad day for the industry when the manufacturers, allow dealerships to deliver defective equipment. Lloyd Bridges Traveland, Chelsea, MI charged us $450 to do the mandated Forest River pre-delivery inspection and then delivers us a malfunctioning RV instead of fixing the problems prior to delivery. The issues I listed above were occurring during the trip home and the very first time we personally tried to use them. It is obvious to me that Lloyd Bridges Traveland either did not do the pre-inspection as mandated or hid the problems from us so they could get their money and send us on their way.
Think twice before you even consider dealing with Lloyd Bridges Traveland and be fore-warned, they sell all their RV's "AS-IS
, including new ones. They make it your responsibility to deal with the manufactures to get warranty work done.
I need to give a big Thank You
to Brian Meeks, Forest River, and to Rick Danz and the mechanics at A&S RV Center, Auburn Hills, MI, for handling the warranty work on our Sunseeker, even though we did not purchase it from them.
Hopefully A&S RV Center will carry an RV to our liking should we ever upgrade to a newer, bigger, model.
BTW we did let them know that we wouldn't bother them should we find any other issues till fall, unless of course they are major issues.
