Annual Inspection and manuals, etc...

Wow, finally found someone to do it for a reasonable price!
But, given that I was ready to leave it and he told me don't even unhook, it will only take a minute! Paying for this is a real joke

He asked for my manual with the form in it and I said, what manual !?! I don't have a manual, I just printed the form from the forums...

So he gave me a manual that I never had seen before it's only 6 x 8 inches or so and surprisingly good !

took all of 10 minutes for the inspection
and 20 minutes when he asked how I liked the rv so it took that long just talking about the issues I've had....

He was great and said send me a list... and we can work you in !

OBVIOUSLY some change in mgmt happened around here

and maybe some of you will find this LCI manual useful:

John,
Where did you go? I'm surprised you didn't have the manual in your big black bag with the Redwood logo.......

We too did not receive a manual. Called RW and they sent me one and said the inspection sheet was on pg 52 ?? When I received it, pg 52 was nothing but a bunch of lines. Called RW and talked to the dealer side and she said, Oh, you got a 2015 manual, not a 14 manual. She emailed pg 52 from a 14 manual to me.

We discussed what the purpose was of the annual and she stated that starting in 15, they no longer have the +5 on the warranty. Meaning that All RW's have a 2 year bumper to bumper, but prior to 15, you have 3 more years of coverage on "the guts". Meaning, framing, walls, guts, etc. The reason for the annual is to be sure no leaks are found in the roof, caulking, silicone etc. This is to preserve the integrity of the structure.

Starting in 15, you have a 2 year warranty and that is it, no annual required.

Sooooo, since we have an extended service contract, I am thinking of blowing off the annual since we are covered after 2 years anyway. Plus, I don't have an "authorized service center" within 4 hours drive that I...

Well, nuff said on that.

Redwood told me 3 weeks ago to take to nearest REDWOOD DEALER ONLY and leave until inspected. So pack my RV after BEING parked for 6 months, Towe 80 miles drop off unit, rent a room until we were notified inspection done. Dealer quoted 3 weeks, it was a north Dallas Redwood dealer.
I still have 2 months till I need inspection, can't even use any RVIA REPAIR, EXCEPT REDWOOD DEALER. NO COMMENT!!!!!!!

I feel really stupid, but I am still trying to find how to start a new thread. Instructions again please! I've been on many forums and never had such a problem! I can send privet messages and start a new thread but not the whole forum messages. Thanks for your help!

in the manual they gave me, the inspection form was like page 3 or 4

and RiffRaff - call ExploreUSA in Fort Worth...
they were very accommodating for me (this time!)

he said I didn't even need to unhook.
