It sure takes the joy out of getting a new unit. It totally amazes me that the RV industry operates this way.

My opinion is that I expect to do every repair I can handle myself and only hope that the dealer will let me swap a part out that is broken. So if a WH or A/C does not work, then I hope they would let me give them the broken one and they would hand me the new one. I hear so many horror stories of incompetent service Techs, I just as well NOT have them touch my camper.

Not sure if the above is possible as FR may only pay them if they do it personally. I just do not know as I have never had to worry about it. YET!!!!

We're going to see how the self repair bit goes after this. I went by today "Because I needed something out of it" which I did, but it worked. My repair order is sitting on the parts managers desk, waiting to get called in.

I asked if they're going to make it, I was assured that they were. I'm going to give it until Thursday then I'll probably end up being a horses tail.

Three and a half weeks just to order parts.
