This is an old topic that I have seen earlier posts on, but I thought I should bring it up again. When connecting the shore power cord yesterday, the gasket around the hatch fell off the at the bottom of the hatch. When I inspected it, I discovered that it was still glued to the paint. It's just that the paint was no longer attached to the metal frame around it.
On closer inspection, it appears that there is a lot of rust around the metal frame throughout the outside of the coach. I crawled underneath and found a lot of the Winnebago manufactured steel was in the same shape. On the other hand, the Freightliner chassis and attached components are fine. I have written to Winnebago since this is clearly a manufacturing defect.
I might be able to do the work, but I still have a job that requires travel and I don't have the amount of time that it would take to do the surface prep, masking and coating. It is a bigger painting job than I have done before and may be beyond my abilities to complete.
I would most likely wind up having to pay someone to take care of it for me and that's a huge expense.
Based on some of the posts I have read, there are quite a few folks that have had the same problem. Has anyone else had any success getting Winnebago to participate in getting this taken care of?
