Really it of course is the last one to go in and out and no individual slide switches...a storage compartment latch that has fallen apart and the residential fridge that on our last trip apparently flipped out of its compartment appears to have hit the dining booth and bounced back into place, it now has a dent, tore out the piece of paneling that was above it, damaged the frame around the fridge. (No we did not go up any weird hills sharp turns etc) I am guessing the 2 L brackets attached to the bottom front are the only things that "held it in place" if you can call it that due to the damage done. An A/c system that barely keeps the unit at 79 degrees during the day even with both units running.... I know to expect things with a new unit but.... Tried to attach pictures of each of the above but seems to be only letting me submit 1[ATTACH][ATTACH]Attachment 119729[/ATTACH][/ATTACH]
Our fridge did the swan dive too. We got a whole new fridge. The dealer did a half ass job on the trim repair and put a strap across the top to prevent it from happening again. I think that isn't the correct way to fix it but it works. We have also had a problem with our a/c and it is now in for the second time to be looked at (at a different dealer from the first time because it was looked at by the dealer that did the fridge work and I don't have confidence in them). The dealer it is at now is supposed to be doing the recall additional vent work as well. Our slides and jacks started acting up the last time we had it out. The dealer said it was a common issue that the breaker was overheating during operation and they needed to add a second breaker. We will see......

There is a thread about the Lippert jacks. You remove a quart of the hydraulic oil and add a quart of caterpillar synthetic hydraulic conditioner....search the thread....it worked

It didn't work on mine. Popped and snapped all summer. The dealer added 1 quart cycled and sent it out. Still did it. I added another quart and cycled all hydraulics. Still popped and snapped. And we both used the CAT additive. Needless to say they will be looking at it again.

My 377flik was popping the fuse for the gear located near the hydraulic reservoir. Dealer replaced relay with a stronger unit n now works as it should. Also was advised 15amp shore power at home is not enough to keep batts charged so now I use a battery tender.

They did this to mine too and I get it back tomorrow.. We will see if that fixed the breaker popping issue. Can you explain further on the 15amp and battery thing? They said my less than 1 year old batteries were shot this time when I took it in for the breaker and other things.

You have 2 batteries; output from standard outlet at home is 15amp. As explained to me it's not enough to charge batteries so on a separate outlet from house i run to the the batteries n keep a battery tender on them. Prior to that my batteries were running down n didn't know why.

Doesnt sound right. Unless the adapter you were using only fed 120 volts to one leg of your camper leaving the converter on the other leg. What kinda 50 amp adapter to 15 did you have?

Yeah that makes no sense to me either. I wasn't having any issues with them staying charged. But every time I picked it up from warranty repairs from the first dealer I tried the batteries were stone cold dead like they hadn't killed the battery switch or kept it on power so the batteries would stay charged while they had it. And they had it for 2 MONTHS every time they had it!

For 10 years, I've been using a 15amp house outlet to plug my shore cord into, to recharge my dual battery setup.
It uses the WFCO converter to do this and I have NEVER had any issues and the batteries stay fully charged.

I don't know who "explained" it that way but they're wrong, unless something wrong with the converter.
