If you're frustrated about the payments or choice of floor plan..can't help from here...if it's the coach, lay out your issues and you're sure to find a solid solution here. Life is too short to live with frustration. Let's get it fixed!

What “they”said. There is a steep learning curve for all of us when we start but we really can help. Take issues one at a time and post here and I flat out GUARANTEE that a friendly bunch of folks will help you get on top of it. Then we can move on to the next one. Before you know it you’ll be helping other new guys with you stories.

Newbie Frustrations

We were all new at some point. Be specific and a good number of people will offer up how they've dealt with similar issues.


Once you get beyond the chassis - all motor homes are pretty much the same - quality can vary but the functional issues remain the same.


You'll get good or better at Root Cause Analysis - Why is it happening and how can it be fixed.


Ask good questions and you'll get good answers...

We have a 2018 29m and love it!!! It has taken a while to get things fixed. Some were the coachs fault and some were mine. In the end, you have bought a great RV and the space and features vs. the cost is in your favor. Let me know whats going on and I'll do my best to give you advice!! Bob Trice

We purchased our very first RV last April. We had no experience, but the people here have taught us so much! Don’t be afraid to ask any questions. Most everyone we have encountered here have never been judgmental and more than willing to help. Just share as much detail as you can and you will likely receive a simple solution to your issue. Welcome to the forum!

Welcome! Please share your concerns. We bought our 2019 Windsport in March. We too are feeling frustrated. We have our coach in for a leak under slide pipe broke when slide was extracted.

Are you talking about the swivel drain pipe under the kitchen cabinet floor with a flex hose to the gray tank?? Ours came loose because it was not installed properly like several other things you "MIGHT FIND" on your coach. Not a lot of checks in production apparently. I over engineered it with extra pull ties and a new clamp. In theory its a space saving design but in reality it's prone to fail. Wish they could do away with this for a direct connection to the gray tank but that's what they did???? Hope this is what your talking about...Bob Trice

We love ours too!!! We got a new mattress, took out the sofa and installed a pair of powered recliners that have massage and heat, modified the outdoor kitchen to accommodate a dryer. Found a Giantex washer that does a better job than my $600.00 Maytag washer at home. Installed a variable speed water pump, a curved shower curtain like many Thor coaches have, added a 110v circuit with recepts in the bathroom and under the dinette seat, Roadmaster anti-sway bar in rear and Sumo springs in front. Handles like a Corvette! Only thing better than driving it was living in it for a month when we drove 7750 miles from NC to Ca. and back. Gets good mileage and didn't have one problem the whole time!! Bob Trice

Wow! Could you post some pics! I am more of a visual person.
Yes the swivel pipe under slide broke. What joke. How did you get to it? I could not figure out how too.
I thought about taking sofa out to put in 2 recliners but the heating duct is in the slide. Please give me some pics.

I have a 2019 29M which I purchased April 2019. I love mine and will be happy to share my learning curve with you. What particularly is frustrating you? It is a great RV, great size and as I said, I LOVE mine.
