All RVs are high maintenance. We were fulltimers in a DP for 8 years. We have owned various RVs for close to 50 years. I've never had one that was maintnance free. Something always comes loose, breaks free or simply doen't work. That can be expected when hauling your house down the road.
We just traded an 08 Spree for a 277RL Vibe. Haven't picked it up yet but I expect to find a number of issues. Having sold RV's for a couple of years, we never found a manufacturer who sent out rigs that didn't need a number of fixes.
Taking care of those little things that break is just part of owning an RV. Enjoy your rig, but even top of the line RVs have issues.
