Default You ever get to the point that you're done with Dealership work?

We have a 2021 Class C and it has been into the dealer three times in its first year. The little piddly stuff has been fixed, but the big stuff, worked on 2-3 times is still a problem.

I guess I am just DONE, expecting the Service Dept or Gulf Stream to fix things as they should.

We are out of the 1 year warranty, so I am now going to take matters into my own hands.

The big window that chatters like a broken clothes dryer, in my opinion, is an engineering failure and I will just need to brace it and shore it up when we are driving.

The water leak that comes from driving in rain and originates from the left rear wheel well will get a couple of coats of pickup bed liner.

Just frustrating that Gulf Stream can't build a better product and more frustrating that Pros from the Service Department can't figure it out and fix it.

UGH......

So I will root out the problems and fix them myself and my next RV won't be a Gulf Stream.

RV's are a trade off between quality and cost. So if an RV was built to quality standards such as the aviation industry (for example), no one could afford that RV. That being said, RV's need attention from either a service tech and/or the owner on a regular basis. Windows need to be scrutinized for proper seal, hardware needs to be inspected and adjusted/tightened on a regular basis. Gulf Stream happens to be a very good manufacturer that makes that middle mark. Cost is good, quality is good . . . Companies such as Intech are better at quality, but you pay almost three times as much as Gulfstream. You decide. I'm a Service Tech, and am happy to help make things the way they should be . . . Even obviously under warranty.
