Newbie

Just got my first motorhome in Feb.,a 2019 Windsport 27B. Have enjoyed reading repairs/modifications. Unfortunately have not been out much, having some problems and warranty work. Big issue is the Firefly system goes on and offline days at a time. Had in once for repair worked for 3 days then went out on my next outing at campground. Only thing that saved me was the smartphone app. Now was diagnosed requiring new cable but will take 3 weeks to get then who knows how long at dealer. Like the RV when it works.

Welcome!
Stay after the dealer, some of them will put off warranty repairs and drag you out for months! The worst thing you can do is just leave it there and hope!

Not sure if you've contacted Firefly Systems directly or not. Their customer service is second to none. I don't feel many dealer "technicians" are capable of properly diagnosing these new systems, thus they start throwing parts at them hoping they got it. I had a problem out the chute with my Firefly...two wall switches worked randomly. Dealer in ATL told me it needed a new wiring harness (all wall switches are wireless) and would take 2 months accumulative to fix it but they had to have the coach on their lot the entire time. I called Firefly Systems...ended up replaced two "2032" batteries in two of the switch panels...boom!! Firefly told me to please call them direct with any issues before going to a dealer...for the exact reasons stated above.

We also picked up a Windsport 27B in June. Love the floorplan. Have done a couple of short 3 nights shakedown trips. Picked up a Jeep Wrangler Toad and hoping to go cross country in September.
