Schwintek

well went to pull the slide in when we were about to leave for our little get away at the beach, and low and behold the slide would come in and stopped about four inches from completely coming in, called the dealer to talk to a maintenance guy and he had no clue, so then I remembered that I down loaded some info on the slide components on my PC, looked through and found the place it talked about the manual over ride, used it to pull the slide all the way in, now I just need to see how to reprogram the slide, we took off and were are now relaxing at the beach, the slide went out fine, just need to play with it and see is I can get it re-programmed for when we come home, this is the first time we have any problem, drove to North Carolina and it work great at every stop, until now, I really don't trust these mechanisms at all, not sine they destroyed it the first time when we went to pick it up at the dealer the first time,, WSY

Have not seen their dash cover yet. Just waiting for their vistashade for the power awning to come in. Plan to try it out when we get to Florida on vacation.

Well got some good news yesterday, while the coach was being fixed, all the problems from the start,
and some that came up this year,
the service guy called and said that the schwintek controller was covered, I don't know why or how, or by who, he talked to the DW, and she didn't ask, but I will find out and share later, he didn't order it till he was sure they were going to cover it, he should have ordered it anyway because I couldn't use it the way it was, but anyway I am glad they had the heart to cover it, now as long as they did a good job and everything is up to par, I will be a happy camper,

Good news. The non coachmen parts may have longer warranties than the coach. The chassis is a prime example.

right, I know the chassis warranty, which I extended, but the manufacture warranty on the schwintek slide components is one year from purchase date, I even contacted them for advice, I really believe without contacting Nate Hedges that he just included it in my warranty extension from him for 120 days so I could get the coach fixed from my dealer, I also believe he contacted the dealer and told them to get in gear, because they lollygagged for so long to repair my coach, of coarse I am just guessing at this point, but I would almost guaranty that is what happened, Nate Hedges has been fantastic in his helping me with everything, and I wish the coach had better quality assurance when made, but that is neither here not there,

one thing I did before my last outing to the beach, was to change my oil to full synthetic, and it might be just me but the roar from the engine going up the 5% grade on the trip was a lot quieter, It might be my imagination, but I will almost bet my DW on it, LoL, when I went to buy the royal purple oil, the guy told me that was for racing engines, what was I putting it in, I told him a motorhome, and he said why, and I asked if he ever drove a motorhome up a 6% grade, he said no, I said it sounds like your racing your car on a drag strip, anyway, I am very pleased with the full synthetic difference,

Motor Home is ready

well they called ans said out coach is ready, so we are going by to check it out at 1:00 pm, I sure hope all is done, other wise it will set there until it is, I have till april 4th to make sure it is all complete, and if I have too I will let it sit there, and if still not done I will still not go get her until they finish, they were contracted to fix her and by golly they have a responsibility to do so, well that is my opinion anyway
