Good one.

It's unfortunate but true, not that there are complaints, but sometimes I think way too much emphasis is given to them. When I see someone post a complaint about some defect or other, one maybe I've never ever seen before and then I see folks compiling lists based on what might have been a singleton complaint and then specifically asking ETI to check for that situation ahead of time.

Tough list to read, I'm expecting mine won't be a lot different.

First question to ask, in my opinion, is, "have you read the manual"?

So far we haven't had a single complaint, just some items that needed adjustment/replacement. Our 5.0 has been wonderful. It's all about attitude, and our glass is always at least half full.

Enjoy,

Perry

People like to complain. I'd have to agree with that. Some complain about aspects of their trailers. Some complain about people who have different opinions than they do. Chalk this up as just another complaint thread.

I love to complain but unfortunately I haven't found anything to complain about.

Complaining is one thing - posting a problem with a solution is another. Do less of the first and more of the second.

At some point, everyone is going to have some kind of problem. Being constructive by posting solutions to problems might help someone else who is struggling with the same problem.

Anyway, that's what I think.

I've been working at it and I have a complaint. The regulator pigtails need to be longer! Don't ask me why, they just do.

I agree 100%. Whether the help is technical with part numbers, sources etc. or anecdotal (my preference) the third tenet of the Boy Scout Law still applies and rings true. A Scout is Helpful. The other 11 ain’t bad either.

What is there to complain about? If you're on this forum you.

A. Probably like to camp.

B. Probably don't mind not taking a shower everyday.

C. Enjoy adventure.

D. Plus you own what I think is the best travel trailer value in the industry.

I think life is pretty good

Enjoy the journey.

Steve

Reminds me of the joke where 2 old men sitting on a park bench and one is crying, the other one says "what do you have to cry about, you have a nice home and a new young wife waiting for you there" and the crying man responds "I can not remember where I live"!!

Hi: cpaharley2008... Over the years I have compiled an extensive list of complaints about our escape trailers. Sure wish I could find it!!! When I go looking... something else goes wrong. I meant to take a picture of the best meal I've ever eaten. By the time I remembered this was all that was left!!! Alf

Is this a thread by people complaining about people that complain?

It's impossible to 'see' sarcasm in a text-based environment.
