RV Quality or Even a Facsimile Thereof

Posted 09-14-2020 at 10:28 AM by 1GRN1

Is it any wonder that, to my knowledge, J.D. Power has not granted awards to Winnebago (WGO), WGO suppliers, or WGO dealers or dealers' service organizations? I'm not aware that RV manufacturers or suppliers are required by the RVIA to comply with quality management systems, and especially such as those prescribed by IATF 16949 which is widely used in the automobile and HD Truck industry.

Hey WGO Chief Design Engineer - have you even heard of a function diagram, DFMEA, Taguchi Diagram,...

Forza Design Failure #3: Convection/Microwave Exhaust Vent

Posted 09-14-2020 at 10:16 AM by 1GRN1

Our 2017 Forza 38W is equipped with a convection/microwave w/range hood and exhaust vent. Unfortunately that exhaust vent exhausts hot air from the convection oven INSIDE the coach. In summer it's then impossible for our air conditioner to maintain a comfortable temperature. This makes the convection oven largely unusable.

One such item is a windshield daytime window shade. Sometimes we're inside and the front of the coach faces west and you get the afternoon sun.

Does your Forza bathroom have an emergency escape window with an approx. 4" high screen at the bottom? Is that screen located approximately level with the crotch of an average height adult? If so, then how often was your window open and you unintentionally exposed yourself to or otherwise "mooned" your neighbor?

2019 - 2108DS - Winterizing Question

Posted 08-25-2020 at 08:30 PM by Ross H

wife and I bought a 2108DS this spring (last year's hold over). Love the unit by the way. Looking for some advise on the best way to winterize my RV. I live in North Dakota, so it has to be winterized to at least -30F. Thanks in advance.
