By the way, does CA give you any of the supporting equipment such as Water Pressure Regulator, 30 AMP Surge Protector, Water Hose and Sewage Line, etc.?


Sewer hose is likely included, but that is about it.
Definitely no surge protector.

Good luck!

From what I have read in other posts it seems that they don't give you much. Some others here have bought a start up kit Like this one It would be a good idea to have something like this when you go to pick it up just in case.

It is what I received when I bought mine from El Monte RV. They also gave me a set of Leveling Ramps

Thanks. Have been listing the starter things that I would need and this kit will be a part of that list.

Just ordered one of the 19G's today and will be available for pickup February 25th. Will get it professionally inspected including fluids analysis before final payment. Don't think I will be getting the Extended Service Agreements. CA pays up to $300 for a one way car rental to Orlando. Will keep the forum appraised of the progress.


Congrats!!

According to Jason Go, the manager at Kissemme, the refurbishment centers, are at his location and Mesa, Arizona.

Kissimmee is in Orlando actually what you might call a suburb. The Cruise America facility is located in Kissimmee.

Hi
I ordered a 28a2017 through the Manassas va. Location . Anyone have any information about getting an inspection in that area . They say they are refurbished in Mesa Az. And then driven to va. Via .hired driver or 1 way rental. Has anyone purchased extended warranty and attempted to use it . Should I expect or ask for anew set of tires . Should batteries be new ? Do they do a complete trans mission fluid change with a new screen.


I skipped the warranty when I looked at the small print. The 30 day one is quite comprehensive though so make sure you take a trip in that time.

They don't change fluids - or test them. I had a complete fluid test and was told "well you can change it if you want". I did.
The battery will be original as long as it holds some charge. The tires will be as is unless illegal.

I did use an outside inspector (in Denver so not a lot of good for you I'm afraid) and I'm glad I did. When they refurbished the roof they didn't finish it correctly.

Thanks for the information


According to the Cruise America brochure and the Orlando Sales Manager they provide a 3 month/3,000 mile Power Train Warranty. We will plan on using the motor home quite a bit within that 3 months in order to shake out any imperfections. By the way, does CA give you any of the supporting equipment such as Water Pressure Regulator, 30 AMP Surge Protector, Water Hose and Sewage Line, etc.?


Water house and sewage line - yes

Everything else - not to my knowledge
