No time to wait / hassle with warranty repair, I just ran to the closest dealer and bought 2 hoses and swapped them out. I bought braided hoses that […]

My Houston Tx. family is in the process of looking for and buying an RV that will be used at least once a month possibly all year long.

I have taken it to the dealer, they said they repaired the ground. In between trips, it can be several months even almost a year before we […]
