It has been a year since we purchased our rv. We posted a few comments on problems we had with the trailer and haven't been on forum for awhile. Too much much to recall. We first had issues with towing, we are not happy with the outcome on that one but will have to live with it. If we go over 60 miles an hour still will sway some. Then the issues with the oven, icebox, broken window have been resolved. The icebox freezer still frosts over too much. But another issue have to live with. We have taken the trailer on five camping trips. Each time we have had to take back to dealer for repairs as something has gone wrong with it. We used the trailer on labor day. Got to lake and icebox didn't work at all. Had to go to nearest town and buy a huge ice chest to keep food. To be camping in an new trailer to say the least I was not a happy camper. We just went to the lake a week ago. Hoping not to have any major problems. Wanted to get away and have a happy trip. Would you believe, as opening the slideout, it caught the tv and tore the trim on slideout into almost pulled it away from panel. Wow, what else can go wrong? The tv and radio system wouldn't work. I called Ron Hoover and they walked me through some steps to get it working. Couldn't get any channels on radio but the weather channel. Oh well, will worry about that later. It was a cold first few days at the lake and on Friday the sun came out and warmed up. I turned on the A/c in the living area and would only blow hot air. That took the cake. What on earth have we gotten ourselves into. An expensive nice looking RV that seems to be a lemon from day one. I have talked to the dealership and say we have to bring in to have checked out. It is almost a hundred mile trip there and back. So not easy for us to take in.
Would you say this is the norm? I suppose I am spoiled having a new wilderness lite fleetwood for 12 years and no problems. The a/c still going strong. Sold it within two days. Then purchased the flagstaff 2014 thinking I was getting a updated better made rv only to be so disappointed and very unhappy with the purchase.
I would appreciate any advice or feed back on what you think of this problem we have gotten ourselves into. Thanks for listening.
I have talked to the customer service main office but didn't really get any satisfaction as to what to do. Said to work with the dealership but they think this is just things to deal with. I really don't feel these things should be happening with a new rv. Now the year warranty has gone out and we did buy the extended warranty but there will be a deductible to pay.
Please help me to feel better!
