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.
