I don't like calling people stupid. Instead I say, "I'm not saying you are stupid but that you just have bad luck when it comes to thinking."

It's not clear that they drove with the slide out, but it WOULD explain 12 mpg vs 16 mpg!

She never really did say what happened to the slide out.

She/they might have used the movie RV as a instruction manual.

This is a forum, a place to point and laugh while bloated on self superiority.

Doesn't make it right, but it strokes their egos I guess.

I have watched the video about 3 times now and I am not too sure they didn't try to drive with the slide out also, but that brings me to my point. What salesperson sold them this "Mercedes" RV? That is obviously what they thought they were getting, and didn't explain the operation and care to them? My opinion is I doubt that she or the significant other have any other RV'ing experience other than this based on their confusion about seating while underway and operation of the generator. The salesman/dealership did them a HUGE disservice by not explaining what the RV can and can't do, what to expect in the way of performance, and mileage before selling it to them. This is the epitome of the don't care just "SELL, SELL, SELL" mentality, without conscience. They are out a LOT of money for all the damage I can see, and the RV is useless until they get it fixed. We don't know what we don't know; and they didn't know anything about RV's before they purchased this unit. NOW they still don't know, are confused, rightfully angry, and will probably never RV again. Which is sad, because we lose a fellow RV'er; and she would brighten up a campsite... just saying.

My take: her lawyer told her to document all the problems that they have had with their new Mercedes RV. Probably suing FR or dealer.
