Even the Entegra Needs Glue

Ok ......just so everybody knows I'm fair about my critiques of RVs.....

We're on a business trip to NC and on the way the heat/fan controller pushed through the dash. This didn't make me real happy but didn't think it was worth calling the after hours hot line to complain about. After we arrived I took the dash apart and found that Entgra had used a system where they glue threaded studs on back of the dash panel and then nuts hold the switch on these studs.

I don't think it's the best design but it looks nice from the drivers seat.

After stopping at Lowes and buying some JB weld, we're as good as new. The point is all RVs regardless of price have some design flaws and require some tinkering. I still love the coach though and the more I drive it through the mountains the more i appreciate the 450 hp.

We have had 6 RV's in the last 17 years and they have all had some issues some small and some big. My only real complaint about Redwood is how long it takes to get things resolved.

We've been in the Mabine area.

We had some recreation time Saturday and now we're headed back today to the office. We'll be back in this area now several times a year on business.
