First MH - View Profile

The 24' View Profile is our first MH experience. We have had it for a few months and we are still learning about the different systems. No "buyers regret" and having a lot of fun (3 short trips thus far).

Only bugs: Entertainment Center fuse kept blowing - dealer fixed under warrenty. Took to Mercedes dealer for alignment and "Engine" symbol flashed while running. Mercedes dealer gave us a 300 Mercedes to drive while they fixed the problems under warrenty. Enjoyed the 300 so much almost looking forward to the next repair visit. Leaky bathroom faucet - actually fixed myself. Low on DEF - bought fluid at local auto store and filled tank myself (seems about 1 gal every 400-500 miles. Fuel milage from the little V6 diesel so far is 14.5 to 18.2.

Problem now is rattle from door or awning support or auto-step - still trying to identify source. Rattle starts at 55 mph and stops at 110 mph.
Kidding - only had it up to 100.

Looking forward to next trip in a few weeks to Arizona Charlies on Bouldeer Hyw, Las Vegas.

Hello all..just signed up as new member. My little family of four just purchased out first MH. Would like to know any opinions about it. It is a 1997 37rw winnebago adventurer with only 11k miles on it which we purchased for 14k. Is this a good buy? Please say yes because i told my wife that it was and a happy wife is a happy life

Welcome to IRV2! I would suggest that you post your questions over in the MH area or possibly the RV Systems area to get more replies. Not too many folks hang out here. Good luck, have fun, and God bless!
