More defects discovered

2nd trip in my Vegas 27.7 and back to the shop, this time the sewer pipe came out of the Blackwater tank and spilled all over the interstate in Nashville Tenn. It drug a while and had a huge whole in it by the time I stopped, I highly recommend you put some kind of hanger on the sewer pipe if you own a Vegas 27.7, hope that is the last time for warranty!!!

I hope that they didn't make you clean up the spill!

Good luck with the repairs!

Forgot to mention the chassis A/C froze up every 50miles and the continuos water heater was anything but continuos, couldn’t use the water pressure regulator because the heater wouldn’t come on and when it did come on, it only worked a little while, cold showers for entire trip.

I hear there's a cop with a blue face looking for you. All kidding aside, that could lead to serious charges if the wrong cop were to see it. Send Thor a sample of what's in the tank!!

Another good reason not to follow to close to RV's lest they pull a "James Bond" and dump a slick.

Spill in Nashville

It definitely was a messy situation. I have heard of it hitting the fan, but the poor Jeep I was towing didn't deserve that.

Do you have a fixed regulator or an adjustable one? If its adjustable set it a bit higher (like 50 or more PSI) that should get the heater working. If its a fixed one, throw it out and get an adjustable one.

What day did you paint the town? We went through Nashville this past Sunday and didn't see any new lane markings. Hope the Jeep washed up ok.
