Frustrated with 2012 Holiday Rambler 30sfs

We recently bought a 2012 holiday rambler vacationer 30sfs. We found about 10 minor things wrong with it and the dealership fixed most of them right away. I really didn't care about the minor fixes as long as the engine worked good and the appliances didn't blow up. The major "minor" fix was that the shower leaked behind the wall and the slider kept popping out about an inch. The dealer fixed those no problem.

Well, this weekend we got home and unhooked the jeep and unloaded. My husband went to park the MH in the driveway and it wouldn't start! It has less than 3000 miles on it!

It cranks like it wants to turn over (so battery and alternater are good) but acts like it's not getting any fuel to start the engine. We just came back from going over steep hills and the motor did not hiccup like it was lacking fuel so don't know what's going on!

At least we made it home. The tow truck is coming to get it now. I'm glad it happened now and not when we are up hunting in the woods!

I thinks some of the newer ones have safety fuel switches on them. May be a reset button on them. My Ford has one but my MH does not. Just a thought. Code reader would be nice to have in time like this. Good luck.

Of course it started right up at the dealership but they are sending it to a Ford dealer that can read the codes. Hopefully you are right and that it is a minor fix or that we didn't know about the safety bypass.

It did not throw a code. However, the Ford dealer finally got the symptom to recur after two days of trying. They narrowed it down to either a relay switch in the steering column or a diode intermittent failure.

The RV dealership told me that if we don't get it back by 8/29, then he would give us a loaner for archery hunting which starts next weekend.
