PO'ed

I am disappointed and getting more frustrated. I have a 08 Charleston bought new in Jan. of this year.I've had a host of minor problems and 2 major leaks. Today while getting ready for our 3rd trip I noticed the fridge would not work on AC. After not finding power at the rear outlet I checked the breaker marked "fridge" ,it was ok. I then thru the breaker for the water heater "on",,, guess what?. Is it just marked wrong or they both on the same circut?
I would think something that costs over 260K new would have better workmenship. Am I asking or expecting too much??

Logman, your not expecting too much but your issues are not uncommon. You will hear of things like this in one form or the other of all RVs. Be glad you didn't spend $100k more for one of the other brands just to have the same problems. Once things get ironed out then all should be good. I haven't seen an RV yet no matter the cost that didn't have problems when new. I feel your frustration but take it all in stride, take a break, have a beer and you will feel better.

No the refrigerator and the water heater should be on separate breakers.

Good luck, welcome to the forums.

Logman-
I am sorry to hear you are still having trouble w/your rig. It will get better. I know nothing about mh and what could possibly be wrong w/ your rig but just wanted to let you know you have support. My rig is in the shop for the power entry step and to have vent covers put on. I am not using Albany Rv but Len-Rich mobile rv near New Paltz. I asked him to do a complete inspection of my rig because there may be things that need correcting that I would not know.
I do not think you are asking too much hang in there and have fun on your trip.
Debbie
