my water pump has always since new, has an issue staying primed. you turn the switch on and hear it prime. then after it shuts off about every 10 seconds it prumps again for a few seconds and repeats. the dealer says its fine, they cant think of why it would do it. there are no visable signs of leaks anywhere.
the decals on the cap had a wrinkle from new. after the first season, it has now flaked and peeled. numerous decals have shrunk, made visable by remaining glue residue. not to big of a deal except in multiple piece ones like the ramp door and cap. the ramp door has the same shrunk problem. also i noticed that the whole sticker is not centered on the door. its about 1.25'' to one side of center.
of course the dealership once again says decals are not covered and its my bill. if i pull xlr off i sure as hell wont put xlr back on.
anyone else have any advice here?
If you're under warranty, your under warranty. Decals included. Call FR and get some satisfaction.
On the pump, it is bleeding back past the check valve. Don't bother dealer about it. Get yourself a good variable speed pump and change it out yourself. Takes only a half hour and you'll get a better quality pump in the process.
On the stairs, again, talk to FR. If it's under warranty, then they will cover a new set.
Only caveat is if you are referring to an extended warranty as opposed to the new vehicle warranty that came with the RV. In that case forget all I said and punt...
