Glad everyone is safe and sound. And your right, that type of issue could have been disastrous for not only you and yours, but those around you.
I just hope you have had better luck with your dealer and Coachmen's response to such a serious issue than we did. In the first year alone, our trailer was at the dealership for 8 out of 12 months. And even during the 4 months we had the trailer, and 1500 miles from home, we had to work around continuing issues that kept happening. Everytime we called Coachmen, they said we would just have to wait until we got home so our local dealer could address them. They were unwilling to authorize a remote repair. From the common issues to just about every major component of this TT failing at one point or another, and some more than once, we are at wits end with both the trailer and Coachmen.
And to make matters worse, we still have to deal with an intermittent electrical issue that causes us to lose power to the entire trailer. At the very least, that should make anyone leery, and at worst, has the potential of some serious consequences. Their response has been that because they cannot "see" the problem during the short time they have it in a service bay, neither the dealership or Coachmen is willing to do a thing to help, nor do they seem to care that this could have life threatening possibilities.
They now basically have told us that we are on our own. I for one am not willing to start throwing money down a rabbit hole in the hopes of figuring it out for ourselves, nor am I willing to live with an issue that could have life threatening possibilities.
OUR response? We are trading ours in and moving on. I really hope you have better luck.
