We were in Gulfport, MS, during tropical storm Cindy. Rained real hard all night. June 20 I believe. Motorhome (2008 American Eagle) got major leaks in rear closet and #2 air conditioner. Been in shop now 2 weeks. Get it back Tuesday.

Full time and loving it!

No issues while traveling in our 05 Dolphin with W22 Workhorse in 57,000 miles. I was so pleased with Workhorse and I recently switched to an 08 W22 Dolphin which we have driven 4000 miles so far with no issues.

2002 R-Vision by Traillite bought in 2010 had 23,000 miles.

1st Trip- Rotten Green Switch Failure and Hydraulic lift reservoir level switch in Illinois. 5+ days. Workhorse Auto Park Hydraulic Pump and reservoir failed with RF wheel smoking near Hell's Canyon Nat'l Wilderness. Interruption 2+ weeks.
1st Trip, Continuation, the shop from above claimed all bearings and brakes checked and OK. But, RF wheel bearing failed on the way to San Diego.
Interruption 1 + week.
1st Trip While in San Diego the front coil inner air bags failed. Turns out the coil springs should also be replaced. All 4 Hydraulic lifts rebuilt or replaced. Interruption- Another 1+ week
First 5 or 6 trips- Generator stops from overheat above 85 degrees. No interruption, just grrrrr. After replacing the so-called bad batch of fuel pump It never shut down again.

2nd Trip- Total failure of all Ignition and starting motor. Trip Interruption 5 days (over a weekend, started Friday.) Installed the Workhorse Ignition kit.

Learned how to r/r my own rotten green switches.

3rd trip- RF wheel overheated when caliper stuck shut melting the ABS.

4th- Not even a trip. Failed to start in storage. Bad Crankcase Sensor.

5th trip- Ready to go and tow. No brake lites on coach or toad. R/R turn signal assembly. 2+ weeks

Between trips- Front End Alignment unable to perform. Need to replace almost all front end parts. 2+ weeks.

Between trips. Onan generator ate itself spewing metal parts about.

6th trip- Engine missing and sputtering up in Penn. Friday again. Towed to the RV Park for the weekend. On Monday Towed into a freeway frontage, semi-truck tow truck related repair shop. Wait for fuel tank removal and fuel pump replacement. 3+ weeks interruption. And then, the transmission cooler oil leak. Interruption- another +1 week.

Last trip- The hydraulic cylinder end of the auto park hydraulic park brake failed due to bad seals.

Bought a new RV, 4 days later the driver's slide failed out (on a weekend) and the side/back up camera failed.

Billfish636: The MH gremlins have found you. Never heard of anyone having as much trouble as you have had on your RVs. don't give up. Keep the faith and keep killing those gremlins.
