First 2 years with my MB Sprinter LTV Unity, I had more than 3 problems but the 3 things that made me worry the most where: Tires and valve stem failures, Dometic RM8555 Refrigerator not cooling well, and Mercedes Benz issues DEF and wheel speed sensors. The first and the last still worry me because it is so not fun getting stranded on the side of the road. It has happened to many times that it has kept me fron relaxing and enjoying the ride.

A little off topic...

We have been fortunate, perhaps, because we have not had any major or repeating "problems" with the RV. I would say that worrying about potential "problems" is the biggest "problem." So for me, "maintenance things" that consume the most time and/or are a distraction from our travels become the "problems" -- when/how to make time for maintenance to be performed, of course, in the hope that we avoid all the REAL "problems."

1. Making sure that all of the routine Freightliner and Cummins' maintenance is done (though I do most everything else, I do not do any drivetrain work myself).
2. Cleaning and sealing the roof and slide gaskets. No leaks, woohoo!
3. Battery maintenance (if I had to do it all over again I would install 10 maintenance-free ASM batteries, instead).

If I added the toad to your question, then my list would change, as the Jeep TrailHawk has been problematic to us.

A Different Perspective

1. Terrible ignorant driver's.

2. BAD roads.

3. Relying on a GPS that doesn't have a clue ending up in a Cul-de-Sac.

I too have not had any repeating problems. I have had a hydraulic leveler's solenoid go out, front window shade's motors go bad and a couple of other minor things, but so far, nothing has repeatedly failed.

I'll start with one that most don't admit.

1. Operator Error
2. I defer to gator8s 1 & 3
3. Operator Error & not pulling my head out to begin with!

For us the biggest issue has been maintaining the sensors on the tanks.

The holding tanks show too much and the fuel tank shows too little!!! LOL
