Evergreen I-Go - Water Tank Problem
I just purchased an Evergreen I-Go camper. The advertised fresh water capacity is 36 gallons. During my 1st camping trip I seemed to run out of fresh water very quickly so I suspected I was not getting anywhere near the advertised capacity. When I returned home I leveled the camper, filled the fresh water tank till water was running steadily out of the fill tube and started drawing water out of kitchen sink using an empty 1 gal milk jug to measure the amount. I was only able to fill the jug 18 times before sucking air. This means that I am getting exactly 1/2 of the advertised fresh water capacity from my I-Go.
I returned the RV to my dealership and they said that is how the tank and pick up tube was designed by Evergreen. The only way they can fix it is to come up with some sort of jury rig solution and Evergreen may not approve the fix.
This issue has got me unhappy enough with my Evergreen product to consider returning it and asking for my money back due to false advertising on Evergreen's part. I would never have bought this unit if I knew the actual fresh water capacity was only 18 gallons.
Has anybody else experienced this problem from their Evergreen or any other brand RV? I can see coming a bit short on the advertised capacity, but to me 18 gal is unacceptable. Any advice or comments would be welcome.
