Almost home from our first two week trip in this new 2017 Thor Synergy. I feel stupid for having paid so much to get so little quality. Here's my first trip problem list.
Air bag light on
In dash radio extremely poor reception
Coach radio extremely bad reception
Coach blue ray only plays standard DVDs
Screen door rattles enough to drive you nuts
Passenger seat belt locks up on shoulder preventing movement
Wood panels on both sides of slide out sofa fell off
Roof leaked, skylight leaked real bad
Rooftop AC and interior 120v quit (needs power transfer switch replaced)
LP regulator quit in first week (replaced on the road)
Two cargo latches malfunctioning
Wipers fail to contact/clean windshield correctly
Bath door screws fell out
Bath shelf/ 4-5 screws fell out
Toilet lid won't stay in open position/lid drops on its own
Coach door misaligned? See daylight at bottom corner, handle hard to operate at times.
We won't be home until this evening so the list might get bigger. Nearest Thor dealer is 2 1/2 hours away. I'm very disappointed I will now have to waste my time getting all this fixed after spending this kind of money to buy what I thought was a quality product. One vacation equals a trip to the dealer/or mfg to get stuff corrected. Not sure I want to keep this coach now. 3 days of Gulf of Mexico rain running through the roof and skylight soaking into the roof and cabinetry wood is surely going to be an issue later after the warranty is over.
