Now I'm wondering if I should make them replace it under warranty, or if it's even worth the hassle.

TURBS
"Sabre owners united"
I'm starting to get a bit tired of upgrading all of the things that really should be standard on a decently built RV..... But, thanks for the suggestion on which brand to go to.

I chose Primetime and crusader because I felt, from their website and sales pitch, that they were trying to do more than the other RV manufacturers in regards to quality. Now that I've taken delivery of a new unit my opinion is that PT is just like other manufacturers. Though, they have a good reputation for honoring their warranty. They had to replace my entire LCI auto leveling system (jacks, everything, they could not find the problem so they replaced the entire thing). I'm still waiting for repair parts to come from PT that have been back ordered for two months.

What's kind of sad but funny is that my RV has been at the dealer enough since I bought it that I have yet to rent a place to store it. The leveling system problem really threw them for a loop. They want me to come pick it up again today even though there are still two parts waiting to come from the manufacturer (light and closet door) that might take another month or so to get here.

Anyway, when I get enough time I will write a rant to PT. I think there is an opportunity in the RV market to really provide a solid unit that doesn't require thousands of dollars in upgrades after taking delivery. They just have to choose not to cheap out on everything to start with. Ok, I will end my rant now.

Inverter buzzing?

Before you rant to PT check the model number on your power Center. Mine is a progressive dynamics 4590 with charge wizard and 90 amp charger. Nothing better available.

"Backordered for two months"? A light and a closet door that may take another month to get there?

Sounds more to me that the dealer has not even approached PT about them or even ordered them yet! How can a light and door be on backorder? They are regular items for normal production on the assembly line. Surely, they haven't stopped the line waiting for lights and doors.

I would call PT directly and ask if they have been contacted by your dealer about those so called "backordered" parts.

Yeah, I suspect the truth is that they forgot to order the light a couple of months ago and they just kept assuming it was back ordered because it hasn't arrived. I pushed the issue the other day for them to check on when it would be here -- my guess is that is when they realized they hadn't ordered it. One day I was there for several hours and listened to them training their new parts buyers, so I know they have new people in the mix.

I agree 100% with turbo, see if they will upgrade you to a progressive if you pay the 35.00 difference. If not I would bite the bullet and buy the unit and take to them to install or install it your self.

I'm sitting in an RV park listening to this obnoxious buzz that is louder than my air conditioner. The volume level seems to vary. I'm running my AC and fridge.

How do I tell which power center I have? Where can I see it?

I should note that I don't think this is related to the battery charging anymore. I've been hooked up to 30 amp power for 24 hours and it might be louder than ever. (AC and fridge running.) Even in the middle of the night I could hear it when no AC was on -- just fridge and a couple of cell phones plugged in.

Are you sure it's not the fan at the back of the fridge? That can be loud.
