We recently purchased a brand-new 2015 Itasca Navion IQ 24G. We have had several issues from the time we left the dealer. The RV has mostly been in the repair shop since we bought it. The most recent issue we have had is with the electronic door locks. The driver side door lock is the only door lock that works with the dash button and the key fob. The passenger side and coach yours have to be operated with the key. We took it to our Winnebago dealer and they stated that this was a Mercedes issue. Upon calling the Mercedes dealer they informed us it was a Winnebago issue. Unfortunately this leaves us know where in between the finger-pointing between Winnebago and Mercedes. I had called owner relations at Winnebago they are nearly impossible to get a hold of. I am really not expecting much from Winnebago since they have dropped the ball 99% of the time so far.

I am wondering if anyone out there has experienced the same problem since our Winnebago dealer says that this is a known issue. Does anyone have any suggestion as to how to go about solving this problem? I would really want to enjoy our new RV, but the manufacturers seem to be making that nearly impossible.

It appears to me that it would be a Mercedes issue giving that the cab is make by them, including the electronics.

I believe the way to get this done is to force the M-B and Winnie reps to talk directly to each other in a conference call which includes you.

I can't imagine that's not a MB issue. It's clearly part of the MB chassis. The mutual denial comes as no surprise. Nobody makes any money doing warranty repairs.

I would press the issue with the owner/manager of the MB facility. Still no luck, go up the chain to the regional/ national MB people.

If I recall Winnebago taps into the passenger door circuit for the electric lock on the coach door. I am almost certain this will be a Winnebago issue. I have called WGO directly before and they have been helpful with tech issues. Keep trying with them.

You might ask here too.

Sorry to hear you are having this issue. To me the dealer should be helping you more to get this fixed. He sold it. If the side door is part of the locking system, then Winnebago had to alter the system and should step up to diagnose the problem. I suspect Winnebago tied into the wiring for the passenger side locks and something has come loose or shorted. Good luck.

To me it's Winnebago's problem. They manufactured the coach. They are responsible. If they want to get Mercedes to fix it, it's on them. Make a claim through Winnebago.

You need to go to the link that Dakzuki posted here. There's thousands of owners over there with your same line of coach.
This is probably one of the last forums you'd want info from on a specific model and brand of coach

this IS a WB problem, MB has nothing to do with the coach. like others said go to the wb site , and find a different dealer. this one is of no help on purpose.

Agree that this is a WBGO issue. Your dealer is crappy to say the least; they should own customer service unless it's an obvious MB issue like the engine, or drive train.

The main customer service dept is usually very easy to get a hold of, and very friendly; however, depending on the call volume you might be on hold for little awhile.

I would call the WBGO customer support and ask to speak to a Senior Customer Support Rep.

Thanks to all of you for your suggestions and comments regarding this. The dealer we purchased from is 1000 miles away about 1 mile from Winnebago in northern Iowa. We bought the marketing and reviews hook line and sinker and flew there to pick up the vehicle. We have had Problems ever since and can't get hold of the dealer for anything. At this point I refuse to call them. Fortunately a TransWest location started selling Winnebago recently so service is nearby.
The dealer is Lichtsinn Motors in Forest City Iowa and I would recommend them to anyone after
This experience. It has been way more than just this locking issue. Again, much appreciation to all for taking the time to post.
