2017 Tiffin Breeze

Picked motor Home up at Cummins Thursday and headed to Gatlinburg tn. Guess what it broke down again same problem clutch fan mount broke. Lost steering and almost crashed coming down Mountain in wv , yes broke down in wv again , 2 trips out and broke down both times. I only got 900 miles on my new motorhome and I don't think I will fill comfortable and safe driving it after this trip,and my wife doesn't want to ride it again after we went off the road and ran up on some big rocks before getting stoped and damaging the underside, I think it may be time to get a lawyer to help me through this.

That sucks, I do not like to read stories like this happening to people with new rigs. I am sure it will get resolved and you will be happy with your new coach and enjoy the times ahead.

It's a 2017, Tiffin should take it back to the factory and make it right. A lawyer should be the absolute last resort.

Keep in mind, this is an RV not a car. The chassis problem is not covered by Tiffin.
As a courtesy Tiffin might help, but they are not required to repair.

Are you aware Tiffin builds the chassis for the Breeze? They do. Right there in Red Bay. Whether this is a Tiffin problem or a Cummins problem remains to be seen. I don't know who actually mounts the fan.
