Don't want to side-track this discussion but after RVing for the last 14 years and some 165K miles, I continue to marvel at how difficult it is to find good service support. The horror stories on this forum from owners who have gotten poor service from dealers, CW or other providers is amazing. No sympathy from me for service providers but as a DIYer, I can't believe how difficult it is sometimes to fix even the simplest issue on RVs. Manufacturers seem to give little or no attention to ease of maintenance or access for owners after the sale. Though many parts are standard automotive, they are often modified or re-purposed when used on RVs. I am by no means a technical of mechanical expert, but it often takes me twice as long to perform a task on my class A vs the same task on my car, pick-up or stick-built house. Guess its like working on a sail/motor boat, if it involves an RV, its going to take longer and cost more......
