New Pinnacle on the way!

Well I just have to shout out. After a pretty extensive search around the country we just placed an order for a New 36FFTS with Mike Drudge at Vogt RV in Ft Worth, TX
First class salesman with lots of integrity and good pricing.

We really wanted to buy locally but the dealer had no flexibility - oh well

Can’t wait to get it

Congrats on the order! I’ve always heard good things about Vogt.

Congrats! We love ours despite the numerous small water leaks. Keep an eye on everything and tighten as needed.

Can you comment where the water leaks were so I can be on the lookout ?

Thanks

Congrats. We love the floorplane especially when the grandkids are with us. They have their own bathroom which is great.

The washer connection in the main bath closet was the first. Remove the bezel check the fittings to ensure they’re tight n dry. A small drop every 30 seconds wasn’t found for a couple months and only detected after seeing a damp carpet in the corner of the closet.

Anything behind the water connection utility panel. Had another slow drop that caused the sanicon relay to short which energized the sanicon pump which overheated and failed. Make sure that relay is relocated to be off the floor

There’s a water line under the kitchen slide that feeds the residential fridge. It’s a reinforced plastic hose that folds / kinks every time the slide closes and will result in a significant leak. Easy for the dealer to remove a section where it would fold / kink and slice in a 24” piece of stainless steel washer connector line that can withstand the fold and be more of a loop when the slides closed.

Easy stuff and best when caught early.

We were at a factory tour of one of the 5th wheel manufactuers in Goshen and a guy on the assembly best described all RV's. A shoe box full of loose parts on wheels going down the road - things are either going to shake and vibrate loose or fall off. I live by that to this day.
Don't buy one of these unless you own a tool box - it's not hard though.

We are Vogt RV Groupies. We'll drive ten hours out of our way to have them work on our Pinnacle.


Good luck with your new rig; you are in good hands.

That is awesome! We placed our order at the same time with World Wide RV in Mesa, AZ.

When did they estimate your delivery date?
