Warranty work

when taking your TT in for service and the dealer may have it for a month or 2 do you normally take all your stuff out. like tv, beding, pots and pans, and empty out your storage compartments.

I have mine scheduled to go in at the end of this month.

All we took out was the bedding ( to wash ) and my tools , portable air compressor and my 50 amp cord. We left all the household stuff in there.

RVs can be broken into VERY Easy! Most Dealers have you sign a paper that they are NOT responsible for (Theft or Damage) to your unit! If there is something inside that you value,take it out before you leave it for the Dealer! TVs,Micro,ect. Youroo!!

It's work but we take everything out. I did have some warranty work done this past sumeer where they promised 48 hour turn around so I let it in. Got the trailer back in 24. But this dealer has a very secure lot and keeps trailers for winter storage so I felt pretty comfortable with them.

I guess it depends on where the dealer is and how secure the lot is (and how honest the employees are). No way I'm dragging all our stuff out, finding a spot for it, then dragging it all back in. We had ours in to the dealer last month. I thought it might drag on waiting for warranty approval and then a part, but it was done in 2 weeks. Other than in a cabinet where they had to fix a leak, we didn't take anything out. No problems.

But for sure, anything very expensive or irreplaceable - take out. Most of the dishes and stuff we have in the camper are either old ones we replaced in the house, or inexpensive stuff, so we figured not a lot of risk.

I don't even lock it , if someone is going to steal from it I would rather not have the damage done to the door or windows.

This reminds me of the time that a customer videoed the interior of his TV while it was in for a routine engine service. Apparently he had some suspicions from prior service.

He caught one of the staff on video going through his compartments and personal effects, including a pill case containing his prescribed meds. The staff member was fired after showing the video to the service manager.

Morale: if you don't want someone going through or messing with your stuff, don't leave it in while being serviced.

I would take out anything of value. I won't say who, but two different dealers in different states have let me into customers 5th wheels that have been in for repairs when I was looking for a specific model before ordering. If anything of value had been lying around like tools or jewelry I could have easily pocketed stuff. Good thing I am honest!
