Welcome to the world of the new RV, we have been out since January, every few days there is something that needs repaired, tightened, lubed etc. it gets better after 2 or 3 years. Lol

That's why we bought a 3 year-old TT for 25% less than the new wholesaler prices... We figured the first owners spent their first year having all of the warranty work done & we were able to enjoy 2 years of camping without any serious issues...

However, now that our Dometic fridge is 5 years old it is no longer holding 40 & I will either replace the cooling unit for $450 - $650 or install a larger residential unit for $400... I'm sure our A/C will die under our ownership but we're still money-ahead buying used...

You might also have a bad breaker, replace the breaker with an Eaton or Cutler-Hammer. Take the breaker with you to Lowes, HD or and electrical outlet store. Replaced all of mine while in FL this last winter.

You are right about the advantages of buying used. If we ever buy another tt, which is not likely unless ours gets wrecked, that will be the plan.
Let the original owner work out all the, many, quality of build issues, bugs, and necessary upgrades that seem to plague all brand new units.
