You are very
Soon after taking delivery of our new 2013 Eagle 284 BHS, the water heater quit working in gas mode. Since I wanted to avoid pulling the trailer 90+ miles each way to the dealer for something simple, I did a bit of trouble shooting trying to diagnose why the water heater was not working on gas only.
After the dealer looked at it, the dealer verified my findings and even swapped out the gas valve. They were scratching their heads when that didn't fix the problem. Some crawling around under the rear bunk revealed the water heater was placed on top of its gas supply hose, pinching it off.
I made several inquiries to get some sort of reimbursement for my time and fuel costs to drag the trailer back to the dealer for what was clearly a lack of quality control on the production line.
I didn't get so much as a T-shirt.
