Fleetwood RV Inc. has announced NHTSA recall 10V224000, which involves 2009 Jamboree Sport model 31N, and 2010 Jamboree, Jamboree Sport, Tioga, Encounter model 32BH, and Tioga Ranger model 31N Type A and Type C motorhomes built April 23, 2009, through March 17, 2010.
We have a 2005 Bounder 32W with a Ford Triton V-10 engine. On a recent trip to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the engine malfunctioned and the motorhome had to be towed to a Ford dealer in Ebensburg, Pennsylvania. The problem turned out to be a wet air filter, which got sucked inside out.
Sodden Slideout Situation
Dear RV Doctor:
We purchased a 2004 motorhome three months ago. From the moment we got it, the slideout has leaked. It has leaked so badly that the wood trim around the interior of the slideout has all been removed because of mold, and the laminate on the dinette table is buckled.
It dawned on me that whoever you are, wherever you are, whether you have rented an RV for the weekend or have had one for a while, and whether you have been introduced to this lifestyle through a friend or acquaintance, you are involved in a unique form of enjoyment that many people only dream about.
