How many miles have you gone without a major repair?

About how many miles (or years) have you gone on your motorhome without a trip-stopping repair?

What brand is your motorhome?

Seemed like a god companion question to the "stranded" thread topic.

6 1/2 years, 40K miles.

Had to replace the Allison Shift Pad on the way back from a recent 10 day trip.

$1100 for the part and a repair to the throttle position sensor.

Brand is in my signature line.

Three years and 36,000 miles. Never a hiccup from the chassis system. The house systems are another story!

I have yet to have a trip stopping repair, with 2 different coaches and over 70,000 miles.

The alternator went out on each of them, but it didn't affect our trips. One we ran the genny for the whole 3 days and 1800 miles, the other I was able to free up enough to get us to our destination.

That is the worst we've experienced.

Three motorhomes, gassers, nine years, 50K miles no trip-stopping repairs. Coachmen, Georgie Boy and now a Winnebago Itasca.

Only about 5000 miles so far on our 2015 Itasca Sunstar 26.

On our first trip to the south west this spring the carburetor failed on the generator. That was about a week waiting for parts and the repair.

On the next trip the hydraulic jacks quit working. We weren't too far from home so we drove back home and cut the trip short for several days until they replaced the pump motor.

Now we are five thousand miles into our fall trip, and our automatic Kwikee steps failed. That's going to be about 10 days. We could keep using an ice cooler to step in and out on but we thought will just stay in the area and wait for the repair

A few weeks back in California our Trimark door lock failed and we were locked out on a Sunday night. That was a several day wait for a repair.
