We are about 2 weeks into our 2nd trip, and really enjoying the SunSeeker. After the first trip we had some items taken care of by our local dealer, Barrington Motor Sales in Bartlett IL. Because of the Memorial Day weekend that was approaching, they were pretty slammed, but managed to take care of most everything...
- Re-installed damaged antenna lead to both radios, and added another satellite radio antenna to get that working on the head unit. Great to have all that fixed, especially the Serius XM. The Jenson unit has many more features than the one in my 6 year old car, and we listen to it all the time.
- Since I had covered the Curt controller with plastic bags and Gorilla tape, it has been OK... The dealer has had many issues with these on other units. Since mine still works, they left it alone, but the service record reflects our initial problems.
- The missing Duel Wheel tire valve extender was replaced, and the one that did not work was fixed. After traveling through the Allegheny National Forest (WOW!), which included some rough roads, one of the extenders disappeared. I thought it had fallen off like the last one, but in fact, it had somehow been knocked behind the wheel cover. I am moving ahead with switching all the stems to steel from the OEM rubber, as these things seem problematic. Got the Dually Steel Tire Valve kit from YourTireShopSupply.com, and they will be installed next Monday. Many posts on various forums address these issues, so hopefully this will be the final solution.
- Damaged plug that I fixed on one of the Slide motors... Again, since it works, they did not mess with it. And again, this issue is in the service record.
A few other minor items were dealt with, and we are quite pleased with the support our dealer is providing. After reading other posts, it is clear to me that the dealers play a key role in getting these things functioning correctly. Over the past few days my son has been traveling with us, and showing him how everything works has underlined for me how complex motor homes really are. The "as is" form another poster had to sign makes no sense to me, and would be a deal killer in my world.
We are presently in Rhode Island with a total of 6000 miles on the clock since early April. The RV experience in our SunSeeker has been pretty great, and we have no regrets.
