Unlike everyone else in this thread we have had numerous issues. I will agree that the GD customer support is good however, it should be less necessary.......
picked up unit drove 96 miles to home on paved roads (1-70 and State hiway 91)
fireplace was in the middle of the floor along with one piece of trim. they completely missed the wood frame when attaching the fireplace. unacceptable one pull on it would have been QC enough.
4 or five trips to the RV center to finally get the furnace working..... 96 miles each way.
control unit on the refer died first trip. may have died again testing refer does not work on ac.
water transfer valve bypasses so it fills the fresh water tank to overflow. not fixed
now the water pump cycles on and off as long as it's powered. but because the water intake valve bypasses we can't use RV park water directly. so we are turning the pump on when we need water and immediately off when done.
I have ordered a new pump.
bottom line: when things work the unit is great.......for $47,000.00 they ought to work consistently.
