2016 Winnebago Class C Aspect

Hello fellow RV,ers. We have have 4 previous Winnebago coaches including a 2011 Winnebago Tour. In 2016, we decided to downsize and now own a 2016 Winnebago Aspect. This AM I was off to Camping World with a number of problems. 1. The bedroom Lippert Slide is stuck 1/2 extended (drove all the way from Knoxville TN to Charlotte with it stuck out on the right side part way) 2. The Girard tankless water heater will not work. 3. The GPS/map feature will not work and 4. The transfer switch burned out at GNR and was replaced by Winnebago. My question is, what are some other success or failure stories from other Winnebago Class C owners. I am hearing horror stories about similar failures especially regarding the slides.. We love the coach and I was totally surprised regarding the slide as it was the smallest of the three....

I think unless Winnebago did something wrong installing any of those items you mentioned, you could have had the same issues in any other brand MH.

We have a 2005 Winnebago Aspect 26A and have had (so far) almost zero problems. It has 84,000 miles on it. Maybe the previous owner had fixed all the issues before we got it at 50,000 miles.

NC Rob, sorry to hear about your problems. We have a 2016 Navion and have had no serious problems. Just got home from GNR without any problems. That was our longest trip so far and we were very pleased with its performance. You didn't by any chance buy your new rig at GNR? we looked at a 2016 Aspect there and thought that it was a beauty!
Hope that things go better when these problems are solved. Lynn

When I read the original post, the thing that glared out at me was "off to Camping World with a number of problems."

Yikes! Unless your Camping World is an exception, I would definitely avoid Camping World's service department.

We are on our second season in our 2008 Aspect 26A. It has been a great RV with very few minor issues. It now has 44K miles on it.

Warranty Work

I have a 2016 Winnebago Aspect that I purchased last fall. We've gone through two (2) Info Centers, a number of the outlets not working, replaced a used spare tire with a new spare tire, replaced missing Ford E450 manuals, the TV not playing through the ceiling speakers and pure static when you attempt to listen to FM through the CD player.
Recently I just repaired the shades on the driver side due to a mounting screw being stripped. And after reading stories about the Schwintek slides and knowing a Winnebago owner taking their 2015 Suncruiser back to the factory for repairs. I'm apprehensive every time I use mine.
Everyone who has been RV'ing for a while (I've been doing this since 1986 and this is RV #5) is aware quality is lacking and the manufacturers are counting the number of RVs produced, not the number of satisfied customers.
