We are having an issue with the generator now, it will not stay running, 4 flashes, which the code says OVERSPEED, dealer says to bring it back when we get it out of storage and they will take care of it. Anyone else having any issues with theres?

If I may, this is an area I have some experience, (working with dealers).

If you want your coach available to the family when the weather breaks, I recommend you pull it out of storage now or early March and get it to the dealer for the generator repair. Dealer service departments are busy now but once the weather starts to warm up they'll go from being just busy to being completely overwhelmed. Spring is not a good time to have your coach in for work.

I wouldn't want my coach sitting in the shop through April (or longer) and I know personally, that can happen. Just a thought.

True that. Even promises by the service manager can have issues. He may have had the best intentions when the promise was made, but sometimes reality gets in the way. Maybe ordering the part is the problem. For some uncommon parts delivery can take weeks or months. THEN you coach needs to be worked back into the job flow.

I bought a 2013 Mirada 35DL a month ago. I like it very much so far, although it is in the shop getting some small issues corrected.
