THOR #2485
We recently test drove a brand new 2016 Vegas 24.1 fresh from the factory with a dead chassis battery. They were not able to start the engine using the emergency house battery boost, even with the generator running. The dealer finally got the unit started using jumper cables and a golf cart. While driving the screen for the rear view camera didn't work, and neither did the power side mirror adjustment knob.

The foam insulation strips around both front side windows was loose and hanging down in loops. We also had a hard time sliding the captains chairs forward and back using the left underseat lever.

I really like the layout and utility of the unit and enjoyed how it drove, but am wondering how easy it will be to address these issues.

From this thread it sounds like vampire currents are common and a battery disconnect switch needs to be installed.
