Seneca Major Issue
I know I have been a little absent from the forum and I have missed out on many good discussions. However, one reoccurring discussion has been about problems with the units. I had really thought I was the lucky one. I had some issues with cabinets that I repaired (better than original) on my own, and upgraded the transmission program, front sway bar, and Truma. But I really thought I was doing ok. So on my more recent trip in June, the inverter wasn’t working, and the nav was on the fritz and then, finally, the 50 am cable winder died (internal gears I think and I am careful). Then there is the rear A/C which blows no cold air, but still things you can live with.
But, it was not until I was hand waxing my unit and I noticed a velcro like sound as I waxed the sidewall near the awning bolts. I finally decided, after reviewing others notes about factory service, that I had best get an appointment. I called and explained all the problems and eventually got to the point of the sidewall. That seamed to get me to another person very quickly. Apparently this sound implies a possible/likely delamination. “We will need to replace the sideway and will need to keep the unit for 5 weeks; can you bring it in April 1.” I cannot express the joy that this truck is still under warranty!
I am exceptionally concerned about this issue as I am constantly on the roof looking at the caulking, but this was out of my hands. Anyone have a tent I can live in for 5 weeks starting in April?
