2013 Itasca 35B-any issues
« on: February 11, 2018, 03:58:31 AM »
Love this motor home BUT! Wondering if anyone else has had similar issues. Although hopefully everything is fixed now. We have had- non working convection oven replaced, big screen tv replaced. Water intake selector valve/switch leak. Replaced. Major short with electrical fire in the transfer box. Replaced/rewired. Generator fuel pump failure. Replaced. To name a few. Also some additional small workmanship issues. Thank god for an extended warranty however avoid Grumbines RV in Harrisburg PA for service. Guess we just got a lemon. John

More details - did you get this coach new?  If used, how long have you had it?  Possible some failure of previous owner to address problems.

Lemons are all too common in RVs - the quality is extremely inconsistent. Regardless of make or model.

Yes. It world not be unusual for all of these items to need servicing over the years of this coach's life.  And if they are not kept up with as they come up a new owner gets to find them (and likely more)  all at once.

Please detail your experience with this dealer in the Service and Repair Reviews board here, you can help others.

From your description of the problems, it appears most involve various vendor supplied parts and equipment. Our GE Advantium microwave/convection oven broke about three years ago, I replaced it with the same model. Hopefully this one will last as long as we own the coach (these ovens are about $1,000.)

And then our Splendide washer/dryer gave up the ghost about two years ago - it lasted about eight or nine years though. I replaced it with an updated Splendide model and last year this one started acting up. Sigh. It's a PITA to pull it out for service.  >:(

And finally... ^^ What Paul said ^^
