I am holding onto my older unit forever. Way to many reported issues with the newer ones.
I have seen too many reports of new and improved features with everything going wrong. Motorhomes are even worse.
I feel bad for the people who laid out so much money and morgaged a lemon. But the lemon laws for our trucks do not apply to most of the RV industry. Maybe congress can help. Call them and you senators to formulate a law in favor of the RV consumer.
I would not be a happy camper buying a new anything and having problems. Even Amazon and wally world will accept returns on defects. When will the large purchase which deal with high dollar items follow suit. Take it back, Fix it, or credit me. That is the reputable way of doing business. And do not make the customer wait for weeks.
