New 2021 Bus 40IP

We just took delivery of our new rig and getting acquainted with it. There are a lot of things we really like but there are some things that are strange. The best example is the refrigerator, we were quite surprised that it does not have ice in the door. Our last Tiffin was a 2014 Phaeton that had water and ice in the door and kinda of expected that on a new Bus. Is this what all 40IP's get? And no blue tooth option for the spyder controls. It can be added for $550 from spyder but surprised it is not a standard item.

Overall we are pleasantly surprised by how few problems we have found, nothing serious, mostly just some minor adjustments.

I would like to hear from some other folks with new Buses about their reactions to the standard appliances.

I looked at several 2021 Buses and Phaetons. All had ice and water in the door. The Tiffin website shows ice and water in the door in the Phaeton. No pics of the fridge on the Bus website.
I did hear refrigerators were tough to get with COVID supply chain issues and the Tiffin brochure does have the disclaimer about making changes but someone should have let you known during the build.

Tiffin switched refrigerators mid year. We were looking at ordering a new one and that was one of the changes.

You need to understand there are many issues currently getting piece parts. Like refrigerators. Also heard getting heat pumps was very challenging. Our Bus came with a LG fridge. Much nicer than what “should” have come with it.

On our 14 bus the ice maker was a pain in the &@$. The lg is great. Much more ice and it does not take up part of the fridge. It’s a very welcomed upgrade. Jeff
