Winnebago electrolysis/frame rust problem

Posted 09-27-2021 at 10:31 AM by TMAR

When servicing the batteries on my 2020 14 month old Spirit 31K with 3,000 miles I was shocked to see the amount of rust on my frame and even the propane tank.
The grounding bar seems to be ground zero and I am not alone after doing some web searches.
Winnebago states rust is not a covered item, but a defective electrical system would be - I think they have a serious issue that has not been resolved and I'm as mad as a hornet. It will take probably a few grand of sand blasting/priming...
