You have a point there

Wow...seems like some folks are so stupid that if they were a duck they'd probably drown.

I must be stupid too

I watched this and I had a much different take on it.

I saw a new RV owner who got a lemon. Failed Curt controller, defective slide installation which caused a lot of damage and other problems. She may not be an RV expert like many of you but none of us are with our first RV.

Her mistake may have been expecting MB quality in the coach and she got much less than that.

I've hit my head several times on the rear slide out when getting into the storage locker directly below. So I guess I'm a slow learner as well.

If she had been gushing about how wonderful her MH was, I suspect some of you would have a different opinion of her. I feel for her and her husband having spent $80K or so of their hard earned money and ending up with a crappy, currently unusable MH.

It appears to me that 99% of the issues with the RV in the video are self inflicted not manufacturing issues........... but what do I know ??????

But I do believe their dealer did them a disservice with a poor PDI........

She stated that it melted. Did you notice that the wires were not secured to anything and were routed right next to the exhaust pipe? Clearly a bad installation, not a Curt Defect.

defective slide installation which caused a lot of damage and other problems.


I would say the the slide damage was obviously due to DRIVING WITH THE SLIDE OUT.

Her mistake may have been expecting MB quality in the coach and she got much less than that.

You are right about that. Sadly, most prospective RV owners are not aware that the chassis and house portions of the build are entirely separate. I have a beautiful Freightliner Chassis under my mediocre Winnebago house.

I've hit my head several times on the rear slide out when getting into the storage locker directly below. So I guess I'm a slow learner as well.

Yes, we have all done that. My observation is that after hitting her head the first time, she should have considered attaching the utilities BEFORE extending the slide. That was her specific complaint. Sliding a section of water pipe insulation or a small swim noodle over the lower lip of a slide allows us to get a soft warning the we are too close.

I would say the the slide damage was obviously due to DRIVING WITH THE SLIDE OUT. And with someone sitting in it WHILE DRIVING.

I'm assuming you have seen the posts on the MBS sub forums about failed Curt taillight controllers? How about the recall/TSB on the W floor plan (like hers) slide? I'm not convinced they drove the vehicle with the slide extended.
