I have spent the last two days running everything, figuring out the "order" of things, and believe me, there is an order. The long mirror I had in the old rig was the first thing to bite the dust. In closing one of the slides, it got caught and broke the frame. Not that I need it, I have two closet door mirrors.
When Dan was here last week, he went over the whole unit for me, looking for things that need to be fixed and the list was presented to the Service Department. When I arrived, the first thing I did was get out the list!!! Took me awhile to get everything done, or at least I thought it was all fixed ... but one hydraulic leak remains. The Service Department, however, is closed for the weekend and I need to leave. They do have a La Mesa RV Service Center in Davis California, near a friends house, so that may be my first trip when I get home.
That said, I'm actually surprised at the Tiffin quality. I expected a few things not to work, but the only adjustments needed were minor in nature. The hardest thing to deal with was the TV's. Turn one on and both in the living area come on. Turn one off, both went off ... took me awhile to figure that one out!! My dish network travel'r satellite dish was installed on the new rig and works like a charm.
Lastly, I was able to talk them into giving me some diesel for my trip home. Ouch ... a hundred gallon fuel tank sounds great until you have to fill it up with $4.39 per gallon fuel. They put in $200.00 worth.
My advice to anyone looking for a new motorhome would be to check out La Mesa RV and find someone like Dan Chance who knows everything there is about RV's. Without Dan, I probably wouldn't be a happy owner. He basically handled all the negotiations for me, including my trade-in and the extended warranty. Thanks Dan ... you and Patty are the best!!!!!
