Newbie from Alberta, Canada 🇨🇦

Excited to participate in some of these forums and gain additional knowledge. We’ve had many rvs but just recently upgraded from a 2014 Energy by keystone (34 ft) to our new to us 2013 Voltage 3600 (40 ft). Loving the extra little luxuries in our voltage but also glad we purchased the extended warranty! 😬.
Look forward to sharing stories and chatting with you all.

I have a 2014 Voltage and it was a nightmare the first few months of ownership. Hopefully yours has the bugs worked out. BTW I saw the picture of your rig and I hope your truck is a dually. I weighed my Voltage and the hitch was 3500 pounds and the overall trailer weighed 16,500 pounds almost empty. Anything less than a dually won't cut it.

For example the a/c in the kitchen/living room area is fully ducted but the worker failed to clean the sawdust out of the hole the a/c fed into. The metal tape won't stick to sawdust and wrapped itself into a ball clogging the ducts. Result was all cold air went into the ceiling instead of the ducts feeding the vents.

If you have the Tri-Glide hitch dump it as the roller welds break and you could lose your trailer as I almost did.

Wow that’s quite the welcome ��. Every rv has its issues and yes we’ve had a few (some of which I’m not sure why original owners didn’t fix). That’s why you purchase extended warranty, and yes it is a dually. We are quite aware of the weight of this unit so traded our 2017 srw ram for a 2018 dually to accommodate the weight and size of the unit.
