IMHO, engines and transmissions are likely the most steadfast and reliable "system" in a coach, yet there are simply so MANY systems in a diesel pusher, that stuff just fails at times. One thing that stands out in my mind as I type here and now is how electrical connections can loosen over time. For example, at least in my coach, inverter connections (where romex connects inside the inverter) can loosen an cause problems. Would definitely recommend that you check and tighten ALL electrical connections immediately after any purchase - battery terminal connections, circuit breaker connections, etc
This is why if you can, invest in a good service contract. I first thought about 3 months after purchasing the cornerstone premium service contract that I may have waisted my money. But all at once my refrigerator , #2 air conditioner, my front left stabilizing jack went out all at once. The service contract came through and paid all but my $500 deductible on a $4000 Bill.
