Allergo Breeze

In May we bought a 2012 Allegro Breeze 32BR and it is turning out to be the worst decision of my life. Nothing but problems. Batteries not charging, unable to get TVs to find satellite, was supposed to have engine brake (not), brakes pull and grab, systems not shown in owners information.

One reason I purchased the Tiffin was the good things I had heard about the brand. It seems to be proving very wrong. The hour wait on the phone to talk with a tech at the factor is frustrating. It is a two hour drive to a shop only to leave with them scratching their heads and problem not fixed.

I have wished for my older smaller RV back many time over the last three months.

Glad you're aboard. Sorry you're having problems with the new to you rig. May want to ask a Moderator to move this to the Tiffin Forum. May find more answers there. Best of luck in getting the issues resolved so you can enjoy your adventures and be safe.
Have a wonderful day!

You did not say where you lived...I bought a Allegro Bus several years back and it was 3 years old. Went to the factory they repaired things I did not see and warranted
many items and the bill was more than fair!!!!

Sorry to hear of your problems. Many here have had disappointing experiences immediately after taking delivery, on virtually any brand you might name.

You don't say if it is new.

Tiffin has a good reputation for helping owners work through problems. If you haven't already, I'd give them a call.

Sorry to hear your problems, but the things you have listed do not seem to be Tiffin created problems on your 3 year old new to you rig.

TV Satellite dish and TV linkup. These are usually user problems. Try the Technology forum on this website for help.

Batteries not charging: This could be a switch problem, a battery problem, a fuse problem or a converter/inverter/charger problem. Again not a Tiffin problem on a three year old rig.

Engine Brake: This normally would be listed on the original invoice at sale. If bought used, the dealer or previous owner might have misrepresented the existence of the EB but not likely that Tiffin would have done so.

Brakes pull and grab. Did the brake shop you used indicate that this was a manufacturing problem or a wear problem? What corrective action did they recommend?

Things not in Owners Manual: Usually only chassis and house info is in those manuals. The add-ons like a Sat Dish or TV or Microwave or Clothes Washer are supported by manuals available from the item manufacturer web site. Some manufacturers do a more detailed job of manuals than others.

Now I am not a Tiffin lover, but once you identify the problem and the appropriate source of corrective action it shouldl reduce you frustration level with your new rig. The factory may not be of much help on the items you have listed.

I don't own a Tiffin anything, but I looked hard at the Breeze a couple years ago. On paper, it seemed perfect. Wound up going a different direction for a number of reasons but hadn't thought of it much until about a month ago, when we were in a campground with a Tiffin owner out of Houston. He said that he had bought a Breeze and was very unhappy every minute he owned it. Finally made Tiffin take it back on a Phaeton with full refund. His list of complaints were long and serious, including a couple you mention - no engine brake, odd braking behavior, and odd steering.
