New 2020 Wildwood 27RKS Issues
We just bought a new Wildwood 27RKS. We really like the camper. We are in Florida from Michigan and traded in our older camper for this one. We have had a few issues with it.
The worst one so far is we were getting an intermittent bad sewer smell, not in the bathroom but in the hallway and bedroom. Finally tracked it down to the black tank vent on the roof. When the roof membrane was installed, they placed it over the whole roof and then added the vents. Instead of removing the membrane covering the vent, they just made a slice in it and it would reseal. Removed the covers and cut out the extra membrane and sealed up the gap around the pipe. Problem solved.
The water heater does not have an electric shutoff switch inside the camper. The only switch is in the outside panel for the water heater. I am planning on putting a switch in when we get back home.
There is very little insulation in the walls. When the sun is shining on the wall, they get very warm. Not much I can do about it, though.
I replaced the toilet with a Dometic 320. That was money well spent.
There is a gouge in the solid surface countertop, but Lazy Days RV is supposed to replace the countertop instead of trying to patch it.
Overall, it seems to be a pretty decent travel trailer. I know they all have their issues and problems, mostly because of quality control issues and lack of caring in manufacturing.
I know it's a long post, but it helps to vent sometimes.
