It's been a bad spring finding things wrong with my Adventurer! I"¯ve been watching this forum to see what's been breaking on the Adventurer & the W22. First my 5.7 Sureflow pump gets a leak. Over a month out of warranty, I call Sureflow for the part, it's no longer made! BUT they will send me a new pump under warranty! Great company! I have been checking the hood latches ever since I read about the glue not holding. One was loose after my trip back from AZ. There was something wrong with the glue Winnebago used because it felt more like caulk rather then glue! I have an appointment at a body shop to fix it right this time!! Greasing the drive shaft I find the front clip on one of the rear springs broke. I do a search on the Workhorse forum & find that this has happen to others! I call Workhorse knowing I am out of warranty by 1 1/2 months. They don't even have me as having a Workhorse chassis but I do have a recall(ABS light) that isn't done! I can drive the coach 90 miles & leave it sit for days while the dash is sent in. The best I hear is " Sorry for any inconvenience !"¯ My advice is to check the forums on things going wrong on other people's coaches & checking yours before the warranty expires! I would have to give Workhorse a thumbs down for customer service per my last few phone calls to them!

There might be an alternative although it's a bit of a PITA. We live in our coach and I hate to take it in for work, so I removed the IP myself, took it to the dealer about nine o'clock in the morning. He took the mileage I gave him, called it in and Actia next day aired one to him that I picked up the next afternoon.

It's not too difficult to remove the IP. There were some connectors that were tough to disconnect and I had to remove some push out rocker switches on the dash to get enough slack wire to get them loose.

Also some dealers have a laptop computer program and cable that they can use to re-flash the IP.

In my case the IP display went flakey and the display had to be returned anyway. The new IP had the ABS work already taken care of.

Each time I do a grease job I keep checking the hood hinges and spring clips and I look for anything else out of whack, but cross my fingers and knock on wood, so far it seems to be okay.

Dave, like Clay, I called around and found a Workhorse Dealer that had the laptop to upload the software change. It took them less than 30 minutes.
Some Dealers have the laptop while others don't and have to send the unit to Workhorse.
