Amen on the conduit. If I were designing it, it would have conduit to all the locations where wires go.


My BIGGEST gripe is not he quality of the coach, but the fact that I can't afford to get a newer one...................

Have a 15 year old unit and have had to do very little considering the age. We bought it a couple of years ago and had to do some long overdue maintenance, but knew most of it going in. In regards to gripes only that the holding tanks are smaller than I'd like, and the drawer hardware and cabinet wood work is a low quality. Right now the AC needs to be diagnosed and something done, but after 15 years perhaps not bad.

My biggest gripe is my peeling clear coat and resulting paint problems. I cannot understand how a manufacturer can sell a rig for as much as these things cost and then just have the paint and clear coat fail when the rig is six years old.
If this happened to a certain brand of car, I suspect that a nation wide recall would occur and the issue would be resolved before the class action lawsuit got started.
Of course it's partially my fault because it had started to peel when I bought it . I love the rest of the coach so I'll just have to get the paint fixed and move on...

I've got one of those leveling jacks (right front) that usually will not go up without assistance. I haven't tried to have it fixed, I just carry a 2x4 that puts it in its place.

If you own an RV you have to be handy with tools and a checkbook. I don't care how much you paid. The more complicated the more problems.

Actually, in the eighties, DuPont had a problem with all of their clear coats. Ford, Olds, Chevy, you name it, they all failed and peeled. No class action lawsuits got anywhere. Owners just traded them in or had them repainted. I had one..............

Well like I said I bought the coach knowing that it had peeling clear coat that would have to be fixed.... I love the rig and we plan to keep it for quite a few years so I'll just have to find a good body shop and get it repainted. It will still be a lot cheaper than trading it in on a new rig...

Not enough storage space inside the coach. Chronic generator issues in both motorhomes.

Our problem jack is also the right front. With the new springs it will go up sometimes. Same deal helping it up. I use some blocks of wood and the bar for the lug wrench. It sucks having to do that in the rain.

The only "gripe" I have about our Windsor is that it has 13.5 air conditioners instead of the 15K!
