After Shakedown

We have had our Sunseeker 3170DS for ~4 months. We have used it at least twice per month. After all the shake down, we have found NO major issues with any of the systems. The only issue we have encountered is with a DVD player that keeps ejecting the disc , a driver-side mirror that will not stay tight and "gunk' on the side of the slides (sealent?). The DVD player and mirror have been that way since pickup.

We are taking the RV back to the dealer for some items requested: Fabric coating and paint coating. Other than the things above what should we be requesting?

We have been very happy with all systems: 12V, electrical, hot water, frig, LP, AC, Heat Pump, LP Furnace. No issues with chassis.

To BC, we have had excellent service from the RV. No mechanical issues whatsoever.

I'd save your money and DO NOT get paint and fabric protection!
It's a big Ole scam!

Talk real sweet to the wife and maybe you can purchase something for her with the money I am trying to save you!

You might as well light the money on fire at least you'll get to see the end result.

I agree with Turbs,. Save your money for something else.

I am glad to hear everything is good with your new coach.

I thought the Shakedown is what the dealer did to the buyer at the time of the sale.

Buy a can of scotch guard and just wax it once in a while. If your dealer recommended you should have these, he's not really looking out for you, just his profit center. It's a scam.
