Sanibel back from Repair
Picked up our 2013 Sanibel 3500 today after being at Recreational Specialties for about a month for repair. Looks good! Upper frame flex modifications completed along with a list of other items needing attention. Camping out at Shipshewana Camp Ground South for three days before heading back to Virginia. The following items were addressed:
1. Upper frame flex problem (added approx 80 lbs of metal and wood to beef up the frame. Lippert fix).
2. Replaced mattress which lost its memory.
3. Repair rear AC seal, which allowed water intrusion into the rear corner of unit. Inside ceiling panel, insulation, and crown molding all replaced.
4. Replaced fireplace (thermostat did not function)
5. Install separate on/off switch for outside radio in order to completed electrically isolate it.
6. Upgraded tires to Goodyear LT (at my cost).
7. Installed missing glide strip on kitchen slide and properly adjusted kitchen slide. (was teetering when operated).
8. Removed cutout (left in tank after punched out for drain piping and cutout curled up section which was catching hair) from bathroom grey water tank. Tank was slow to drain and now fixed.
9. Squared up entry door frame.
10. Replace cracked pin box cover.
11. Replace cracked rear AC shroud cover. (my cost $50.)
In addition to the list I provided to them initially, they went through the unit with a fine tooth comb.
I feel completely confident that the unit is better now then it was when it came out the plant after construction. I do expect issues to crop up as we travel our smooth and not so smooth roads racking up miles on our unit and will address them as they come up. I still have 1 year and 1 month left on the warrantee and so far Prime Time has stepped up to the plate leaving me content. I completed a tour of the plant where the Sanibels are assembled and will post the photos on the forum.
