Winnebago Complaint - Winnebago Customer Service/Manufacture
WINNEBAGO, INDIANA -- I purchased a new 2003 Winnebago Brave. The first time out steam came into the passenger compartment from the engine cap. Turns out either on a TGIF someone was in a hurry to leave or Monday morning blues . . . a connector was left off of a routing hose from the radiator to a coil which heats the water heater while driving. When taken in for service it turns out all connectors were loose and some were missing . . . oops Sorry!
1 year later we drove to Oklahoma during the winter months and his some severe weather . . . the plastic on the slide out covers disintegrated. Under warranty? No warranty is for twelve months to the minute! Dealer (Saddleback RV Irvine); product manufacturer and Winnebago all refused to repair or replace. I even offered to do all the labor if they would provide the canvas replacement.
The slide out was not sealing properly, turns out they left a piece of wood on top of the slide out inside the compartment so it would not shut all the way. This should have been caught at delivery.
Call Winnebago and you get some guy who sounds like you just drug him off the toilet to pick up the phone; his help should have been flushed if that was the case.
Before you purchase a Winnebago or if you do purchase one you should do a thorough inspection of every nut and bolt on the vehicle before driving it off of the lot. Once you leave and return the next day Winnebago will try to blame the new owner for any problems with their coach. I should have learned after the first one. Good luck!
