She was very upset with HWH. HWH’s reaction to avoid this embarrassment in the future was to obtain hydraulic transmission fluid without the red dye in it and sell it under their name. My manual says only Dexron may be substituted for HWH fluid BTW. The HWH mechanic told me horror stories about what happens to the seals in a HWH system when non authorized fluids are used.
sure glad i read your letter..going to copy it so when i take the mh to North Trails rv in Ft Myers to get it repaired the service tech will know the importance of using the right fluid..
my Tiffin is an 09. took delivery on April 09.. 29 months ...When i told the service writer about the HWH oil leak he said it was not covered (one year) under warranty...He told me to call Tiffin at Red Bay and maybe they can help..he gave me the extension number.
I left the nessage on their tape recorder about the oil leak..about 45 minutes later i get a phone call from the "main Man" Bob Tiffin..He said to take the mh back to North Trails and get it fixed and Tiffin will pick up the tab ...WOW!
i have read articles about how Tiffin takes care of their customers and now i can add to it...i have been to their plant in Reb Bay,
Al. ..first class operation..stayed at their Allegro Park for 6 days (free) plant tour and seminars..wonderful experience
will my next mh be a Tiffin?
