What a load test does is that it uses heavy duty wire-would resistors to pull a heavy current draw out of each battery. Each battery is rated to deliver a specific current rate for a specific amount of time. The load tester examines whether the battery is able to deliver the rated load for a short amount of time. If you have bad cells in batteries, they will not deliver the rated current. If that occurs, the battery is “bad” and needs replaced. When you are boondocking over night at a rest stop or off grid for any reason you are depending on the house batteries to power your constant loads like the lights or refrigerature and other on-board devices so you depend on them being able to handle the load.

I agree that it should be under warranty regardless of when you bought it. And you can bet lots of money that Entegra Coach authorized Everett to discount it heavily with the factory eating any loss minimizing the cost/Loss to the dealer. The factory “eats” those big losses on units that do not move. It’s not good for Entegra to have old inventory sitting on lots.

if you have ever walked onto a rv dealer in california you will understand why they have stagnant inventory... including paul everetts .. giant rv.. mike thompson etc...

theye stick the highest price on the window and hope for the suckers to walk through the door. then they act like a 10% discounts is the deal of a lifetime.

I once followed a motorhome for sale on one of these lots for almost 2 years before they sold it.. all because they wanted to hit a home run with it the old school sales tactics ..

theres a reason mhsrv/nirvc kills everybody in sales... its a simple sale model.. price them aggressive and sell for a moderate profit and keep inventory moving. where so many other dealers want to hit home runs and there inventory sits. its too bad other dealers can't figure out why everybody drives to texas to buy there motorhomes..

I didn't ask a question. I suggested the buyer replace the GY 670RV tires on his new steer axle IF they are size 295/80R22.5.

I made that suggestion based on my personal experience with those exact tires on my similar chassis. 2 sets on mine-never could get them to ride / handle correctly. Replaced them at my expense with another brand-problem solved. I've read too many horror stories about that specific tire in that specific size. When replacing my OE set, the installer told me he sees a lot of problems with this size GY tire. He put on more of the same, because that is all warranty would approve, and I replaced them 15,000 miles later at my expense because I was just tired of constantly worrying about them. I still have 6 more GY tires on the rear axles, but they are a size smaller, and less likely to wreck me if one blows.
