Airforums was very useful in the beginning and may continue to be useful.
I do think it was tremendously valuable as a newbie to have this resource.
Everyone deals with challenges in their own way.
Some may be mechanically inclined and have the tools and time.
Some may have a reliable dealer or RV repair shop.
For some of us Jackson Center is the best solution.
I don't think of it as complaining so much as airing problems/challenges.
Honesty- calling a dose a spade- isn't necessarily complaining.
It is what it is.

The problems discussed usually have a few posts that can offer a work around or repair. That is why the annual $20 a good investment.

Sometimes, the information can be used to avoid a problem product in the first place.

Saw a very interesting analogy on one of the other RV forums where folks were discussing and bitterly condemning the lack of quality from nearly all manufacturers. They suggested it was like the American auto industry in the early 70's, just before Japan, Inc. ate their lunch with high quality inexpensive cars. American car makers didn't recover from their quality slump until it became a truly existential threat. One can only hope they figure it out in the RV industry before it happens to them as well. OTOH, I can't wait for a few companies to offer the "Toyota" of RVs and completely disrupt the market, displacing all the low-quality companies out there today. <sigh>

This probably won't happen because RV manufacturers don't have the volume that the auto manufacturers have. Without the volume, the manufacturers can't justify buying robotic equipment. I don't ever see RV manufacturing quality coming close to automotive quality. However, it can be significantly improved from where it is today.

???????

Could the problem be?.......

That new hires go right to the assembly line, instead of doing an apprentice stint with a veteran in the Service shop.

POI....we have gone thru service several times with very good results.

Actually, the guys at JC's service first work on manufacturing or assembly.
