Maiden voyage in Vengeance 398v
Hey guys thanks for taking just a minute for me.
We made it back last night from our first trip out in our new toy hauler. We made about a 600 mile run to check things out. Bottom line is we absolutely loved every minute of it. The trailer pulls like a dream but squats my 3500 Dodge Dually just a bit more than I anticipated and body roll in cornering is a concern. My bags and air system will be here this week to install and alleviate the problem.
Everything went smoothly and only have a few issues to consult with the dealership on. MY first big question is how has your experience been with getting dealerships to comply with warranty issues?
1. The water heater sucks, temp only gets to about 90 degrees (verified with thermometer) for a few, very short, minutes. Called the dealership they suggested finding the blend valve and opening it, which I did and it DID NOT help. Hot was full on cold completely off and that is all she had! I was disappointed to learn there wasnt a variable thermostat, so how hot is the water supposed to get, I am looking for 110- 120 degrees. being a 6 gallon my first thought is to switch to tankless.
2. In doing my hit list trying to solve the water heater problems, found two faucets that the hot/cold is reversed.
3. MY hauler door appears to be delaminating and is weak in spots. I stepped in one spot and the ply-wood broke. There is a noticeable protrusion on the outside of the door. Anybody ever had this problem on a brand new TH?
I have always been the person just to fix the problems myself but had to retrain myself and going to attempt to let the dealership and factory remedy these issues.
