Some answers are pure genious. But, my intentions were to point out that 3 of the most desired features on an RV, are in fact the least dependable. That is a shame. Agree?...

In that case here are three IN the RV I would choose:

1. Battery Cut-Off Solenoid - useless except for sales people (that's how it got its name; Salesman Switch) High failure item.

2. Thetford Aria II Toilets

3. Norcold 12XX series refrigerators.

All three totally worthless and useless high failure items.

My top three problems:

1. Repairs the previous owner made (or had done for him??)
2. Maintenance the previous owner deferred
3. Squeaks and rattles

Ok Tom, guilty as charged! I've had a couple of minor problems.

1. Levelers. Occasionally when I go to set them down, one will not come down, I have to retract them and do auto level again. Works fine on the second attempt.

2. Inaccurate Black tank sensors. Readings on both black tanks showing 2/3s even when empty until Last trip of last year. Started using a product called TankTechs Rx. It's a little pricey, but sensors seem to be working fine on a trip a couple of weeks ago.

For those that are having continual problems with accurate tank levels and sensor problems, install the SeeLevel Tank Monitoring system and your troubles will be over permanently.

SeeLevel Tank Level System

top 3 problems

We have a 2014 Tiffin 36LA;

1. Tiffin QC electrical problems(numerous)
2. Step wiring, (poor wiring with harnesses and door switch)(step
failure)
3. Believe it or not, the dashboard broken off cap lip and lifting while
drivingand letting bugs and grime in cockpit.Nice huh?
Optional: still working on problems including incorrect 20A main
which should have been 50A
