FWIW-I have owned ours since 08 when we purchased it new. As stated here by many original owners, WRV failed to QA some of the electrical systems while assembly was happening. As mentioned Check:
All 120VAC and 12VDC connections you can find and reach. For those exposed to outside water, coat them with a high quality dielectric grease, NO-OX-ID-Special A is what we used in the High Voltage Power Industry, I also use it on the elbow door stop on the PTL main door, seems to keep the little spring from breaking every year.
The Kitchen Sink Drain line (partly) uses SPA Pipe, very rigid pipe, with hardly any flex to it, consequently, it can and has broken a "T" in and behind the slide wall, read the thread concerning it.
For those with 2005 and after, the steering gear bracket was cheapened out when they coaches went to movable pedals. The bracket can break and you won't be able to steer-again read the thread on this subject.
For those who have not had problems, great, remember motorhomes (all rv's) are an earthquake going down the road, crap vibrates, and will loosen, you as a good owner should periodically check stuff to make sure you wont have issues. There are at least two grounds on the main engine for the electrical system, if they get lose, you could have some serious issues, those need to be checked.
Also, when the dash AC runs it drips water down onto the generator, some kind of deflector needs to be placed under that unit to deflect the water, and I for one have not figured out how or what to use, but I am studying the issue.
