2018 Wildwood 171RBXL - 1 Year Evaluation
We have just completed our first full year of camping with our Wildwood 171RBXL. While we had a good year camping the issues that have cropped up did put a damper on what could have been a great year.
The first issue was the hot water heater. It wouldn't light. At trip to a local dealer revealed 2 problems - the control board had failed, and the propane regulator was not working properly. Replaced after camping for a week without hot water. Preparing for the next trip, I fired up the HWH and it ran for 30 minutes, then failed again. Another trip to the dealer, and yes the board failed again. Another new board, and we were off camping with hot water the rest of the season. Soon after that repair, one cabin ceiling speaker came unscrewed. We caught it just before it fell. Redrilling and installation took care of that. Mid season we started having a smell in the bathroom. I added more blue stuff, the smell improved but was still there. I finally found the problem as I was cleaning out the camper for the season. The Black tank vent pipe had come undone at a joint in the bathroom closet. It may also may have lost the connection at the roof vent. It's at the dealer now for repair. We are hoping for a better camping season in 2020.
