Voltage Corrosion and Rust on the under carriage
I currently have put a deposit on a 2014 3985. However, there is an extreme amount of corrosion and rust all over underneath the coach. It is much worse than normal wear and tear. It was from the storms back east and whatever they put on the roads corroded all the units coming from back there. Every unit at the dealer I'm looking to buy from is corroded. And they have 3 stores! I live in So Cal, so this is not usual for RVs out here to look like this.
The leaf springs, axels, bolts on the leveling jacks, frame, fuel tank in back, the grommets/elbows on the hydraulics, and even the screws that come through the bottom of the slide holding the flooring together. Or whatever else the purpose is. My point is that it is excessive. Not to mention what I haven't seen yet. I should have taken pictures to post.
The dealer said Dutchmen authorized to have the axels and leaf springs sanded and repainted. And the metal piece between the tires on the suspension system (not sure what it's called). They said they will try to see if Dutchmen will authorize any other work to rectify the issue.
Has anyone else had this issue? If so, what did your dealer/Dutchmen do to fix it? Am I being to anal about this? I'm worried about long term effects. I can sand and wire brush and paint on my own. However, I shouldn't have to do that on a brand new coach. I just think when you spend this much money on a coach, it should not be extremely corroded underneath. I understand normal wear and tear.
So please, let me know your thoughts, opinions.
