We bought a 2015 Expedition 38K in July of this year. As others have said, the chassis was basically perfect. The generator had tripped its circuit breaker, so the first time I went to use it I had no power and it took quite awhile to diagnose it because the breaker is on the generator itself and not on any panel.
The house portion had a number of issues: multiple AC outlets that did not have power to them on shore or generator; wall panel behind midship toilet was not fastened to studs and came completely loose; several cabinet doors over the dinette were not aligned properly and one had the hinge fall off because the screws were not installed; a heavy object was left underneath the bottom panel of an overhead cabinet which rolled around and made a lot of noise when in motion; a loose fitting on kitchen plumbing caused water to drip in the cabinet below; the park cable TV wiring did not work; Lens was missing on outside security light.
There were other things, but you get the drift. None of them were killers but they taught me a couple of important things about PDI:
1. Check every AC outlet with the coach connected to shore power.
2. Disconnect shore power and repeat the process with generator power.
3. If at all possible, plan a 1-2 day camping trip near the dealer's facility to find the bugs, and schedule a service visit for the third day to fix them.
You'll note in my sig that we did not keep the Expedition but traded it in for our current rig. This was based on a couple things, most importantly our distaste for the L-sofa, the extremely small size of the rear bathroom and shower, and the driving characteristics of the coach in windy conditions vs. a tag axle and Newmar Comfort Drive. Quality control was a contributing factor, but not the biggest one.
Hope this helps!
Yes, many times while our son was a student at ECU. The transient sites are large and easy to get in and out of. The people in the office are very nice and there is plenty of room to walk, exercise pets, etc. Enjoy!
I just had one installed this week on my 2015 Fleetwood Expedition 38K. It gives the steering more of an "automotive" feel, with less feeling of free play and fewer small steering corrections needed. I don't feel potholes or pavement breaks through the wheel nearly as much as before.
It does reduce the push from passing trucks, but doesn't eliminate it. Correcting from the push is definitely easier.
Overall, I notice the difference and I like it!
After picking up my new motor home and starting the 700-mile drive home, I noticed that the roof air conditioners would not run while driving even though the generator was on. They worked just fine while plugged in to shore power, so I knew they were OK, and the generator itself appeared to be working fine.
I consulted the Power Control System monitor panel and found that the Wiring Status display said "Error L1 L2". I tried numerous internet searches for the meaning of error messages on this panel and couldn't find any.
I called the technician at the dealer today and described this problem. He directed me to the generator itself and the circuit breaker on it which was in the OFF position. Once I set it to ON, the error message disappeared and everything started running as expected.
I realized after the fact that we did the PDI with the unit plugged in to shore power, not on generator alone. Had we done that, this error would have been found and fixed much earlier.
Just wanted to post this in case someone else has the same problem.
