I started with TT over 20 yrs ago living in them while traveling in construction. Quit that in 1996 with kids and all, so i could be home
and they were newer ones. you will be surprised things that go wrong.
Went from TT 1990 to 1996 to 5th wheels 1996 to 2012 now to a class A this year. You will have to expect little things to happen every now and then, its a home on wheels all the flexing and movement makes things loosen every now and then. will always help to just take some time once in awhile to just look over things to make sure there tight and fluids good ive learned over 20yrs and 90,000 miles later and still learning now as we speak. I agree with the other posts good idea to learn and fix alot on your own, anything you can fix will benefit you always, people on this site are very helpfull and good people to. Me and wife have been lucky with this class A have 5 friends that have them they are very helpfull but we love it. Good luck and have a wonderful time and enjoy.

Try towing your house down the road at 60mph and see how many things go bad.

We have had some OEM failures (air conditioner, convertor, electric awning, power cord insulation) but nothing like the issues you are describing. On the other hand, our custom built, all American, one nail and wire at a time, stick and brick always needs something done. I hate leaving the motorhome because I know something will need fixed or repaired there.
What does OEM stand for?
