[QUOTE=RJOL;5699219]This is not meant to be a thread complaining about a factory built motorhome... It is more to say that I don't believe anyone will get a problem free motorhome from "ANY" manufacturer... If you are really unlucky, you might get a total lemon. But, what most of us get is one that a careless worker just didn't put the effort in to make it right the first time. So far we have had very good luck with our "new to us" 2012 Coachmen Sportscoach in our third year of ownership. We have had to replace the ignition switch, and the guy that installed the shower just didn't care, and it eventually leaked. This has been going on for years and it has even made the bathroom floor a little soft in spots. Finally got that fixed but it took a few tries to get all the leaking stopped at the drain from the shower... Our latest problem is with the house batteries. It is almost impossible for one to get the fill plugs off the tops of the batteries to just fill them with water. The installer laid all the high voltage cables over the tops of the batteries and you cant' even get to the fill ports without loosening several cables and removing the battery tie down bar (see photo). These cables cross over every fill cap and they can't just be "lifted" to get to the fill holes. If that wasn't enough, they installed a high voltage relay over the fill cap for the right battery. I've enclose a photo but it isn't totally in focus but it gets the point across (see photo). This relay would have to be removed to get to the rear cell. I was able to fill all the other cells but this simple job took almost 2 hours to get it done.
My theory is that you just have to be "lucky" to get all the craftsmen involved in building these coaches to "do a good job." Unfortunately there are some that just don't care, and I don't think it makes any difference what you spent on your coach...[/QUOTE]
