lipeprt has always been helpful with my issues.

As for the original issue on this thread they were helpful, you just chose not to buy the replacement part. There are lots of products out there that require one to purchase a complete part...that is just the way it is.

Unfortunately it is not just a Lippert situation. Very few things today are repaired by replacing small parts. It is replace the offending component.

All too common today with just about everything sold! Icemaker on Whirlpool fridge broke, $90 replacement component for $3 plastic part.

about an hour to fabricate little plastic part and replace. I'll work for $90 hour anytime.

Whirlpoop knows this is a problem as it happened to the last one I had and is common question on DIY forums.

I am upset things are like this, grateful I know how to do the things I do and always wonder what people who don't know how to do anything survive.

I fail to see how this discussion fits into this forum. Moving to General RVing Issues forum from DIY.

A plastic gear stripped it's teeth in a lightly used Kenmore washer that was only 8 years old. You had to purchase a complete transmission for two thirds the price of a new washer or purchase a new washer, I opted for the later. I believe the washer was made by Whirlpool as well.

Good idea, but. I doubt Lippert gives a rats arse about what we (RV'ers) think. Lippert is so integrated into RV manufacturing that if you took Lippert out of the market, the RV industry would collapse or be so hampered that it would be impossible to buy an RV for months or longer.

Surprising since DIY means do it yourself and thats what I did.

Sent you a PM but for the others out there, the DIY forum is for Modifications and Upgrades and is not for DIY repairs. Those types of threads belong in the Tech Issues forum. Since this thread morphed into a different type of discussion, I felt you would have better response and exposure in the General forum rather the the Tech Issues forum where it really belonged.

What ever subject this belongs in----Lippert does NOT care about the RV customer. After spending many $$$$$ due to a fifth wheel frame issue, I lost faith in the brand. So disappointed when we bought a new trailer with Lippert windows and steps.
Whirlpool is also a loser.
