No need to tell you how bad the front caps were. We bought ours new, they had just reduced the warranty from 2 years to 1 year. We learned the hard way why.
Thank you Bill BolIy:
I appreciate the input. We did purchase the unit .
I am picking it up this coming Monday.
Final price out the door taxes title transfer everything was $8,500.
this included one year of extended warranty. With a $100 deductible.
We ran the slide multiple times went over all of the electrical everything is fine , including the water and the plumbing and the connections at the outside kitchen.
I even pulled it down the road no problems whatsoever. The couple that had it prior to me had all the issues taken care of in the couple of years that they have owned it. So all the issues of a new camper were addressed. The only thing that the seller is repairing this weekend is the super vent fan in the bedroom.
it's my understanding the little pin came out that raises the lid automatically and closes it automatically By keypad control or if it senses rain outside.
I will be pulling it into my shop this winter and redoing the nose end completely as well as new studs if needed.
my tin knocker will be making two pieces of powder coat aluminum with an S bend on the bottom for the front end which will be attached to the studs. I will be adding additional studs as needed.
While I have the front off I will be adding a couple of smal lLED light circuits in the bedroom area for reading purposes
as well as relocating the receptacles to a different location where it's more convenient.
I will be re-posting this thread in the appropriate section to keep everybody abreast of how it's going once I start the project. I don't think introduction for new owners is appropriate place for all of this discussion. I will keep you posted once I start.
