Problems
I have 2018 2106DS. Purchased in December 2018. This is my first camper. I have used it 5 times. I have had these problems:
1. Water heater leaking. Repaired
2.Doors to storage compartment leaking. Warped from factory. Repaired
3. Toilet had an internal leak. Water was accumulating in an open area were it goes together. Replaced toilet at a cost of $198.
4. Fresh water tank was filling up when hooked to city water outlet. Had to replace water pump.
5. Refrigerator will not work on propane. Not repaired yet.
6. No sealant around part of shower at top.
7. Slide out leaking and mold around edges. Ended up replacing floor because it was rotten.

This is a list I posted last year. I did take it in Dec 31st. I checked on it 1 time a month and was told every time I was next in line. Got if back after Easter. Now the furnace don't work and there is a tear in the couch cushion. They added an extra latch to the Murphy Bed because it closed on my wife the first time she added sheets. It cost $68..
We would like to enjoy using it now.

The Sure Flow pump company is not putting out good pumps. Our Clipper May 10th, did the same thing back flowed 33+ gallons of water into our fresh water tank by the time we found it /it was overfull and about to explode. The dealership asked us to report it, since our camper was the 2nd one in a week that failed. So sad after paying thousands of dollars for these Rvs.

Sorry to hear about all the issues. Hopefully everything will be resolved soon. We recently picked up our new 2106DS and thus far have not found any issues (that we are aware of). My wife and I found it easy to view the TV from the bed. We have only used the RV once and it poured on us the entire trip. The good news was I did not detect any leaking. Have not used all the components yet and we are still learning as this is our first RV. We did purchase the extended warranty so I am not too worried if something fails.

They may fall behind and be hard to retrieve. I haven't tried it yet but was thinking they could be held under the straps when you flip it up.

We store our pillows behind the sofa after folding up the Murphy bed. You do not want anything to fall behind the bed as you fold it up.

2020 2108tb

We picked up our 2020 2108TB Friday (6/7) and camped nearby (we were 108 miles from home) to test everything out and found the following:
1. We were not shown how to use the new style (to us) hitch and wasted much time getting the trailer unhitched and rehitched. There's a "sweet spot" that needs to be found to make this work.
2. The handle for the grey tank was stuck. Monday the dealer just greased it. It's still twice as hard to open/close at the black tank handle.
3. Dealer sold us a Culligan filter that exploded when we hooked it to the city water (yes, we had a water pressure regulator hooked up).
4. The stove hood light was burnt out.
5. Driving home in 100 degree heat the bumper end plugs blew off and the plastic strip covering the side molding screws came loose and was blowing in the wind.
6. The rest was just things we weren't shown or didn't understand.

Our 2018 2106ds does have the murphy bed, and a small closet on each side with a table [platform] below each closet. Great when the murphy is up and the sofa setup for visitors, relaxing etc. Enjoy the trips!

As for the bumper end caps coming off, i have drilled a 1/4" hole top and bottom of each end of the bumper and thru the plastic or rubber end caps [the hole being about 1/4" from the bumper end. A pin made from a guttering nail shortened to ~5" is then inserted thru the bumper and provides a positive keeper to prevent loss of caps and waste water hoses.

Hey Traylor Don, you have the exact same model and year trailer as I. Do you have any idea how to get to the circuit board and gas igniter on the furnace? I can't seem to find the information I need on the Winnebago website. Lots of information on motor coaches but none on tow behind trailers.

Of the list that appeared here, mine has had the leaky front storage door issue. I posted a thread on that with my fix. I also had the light over the stove burned out, but that was caught at delivery. I can only assume it gets left on when the unit is on the lot and connected to power. I haven't connected to city water yet due to the weather.

Good tip. In the mean time, Duct tape helps until you make the permanent fix.

Angry Winnie Micro 2106DS leaks too

Had a pretty good 8 months with our 2019 2106DS, BUTTTTT in Feb found water leaking in right front closet by Murphy bed and window leaking by door. Dealer had it 3 weeks, and we out March 23 and find water again in same spot. Main reason we bought Winnebago because our last RV had a leak before it ever left the driveway. So back to the dealer today. We think were sinking with this, with water in the wall now and most likely underbelly. I wonder how many read in their warranty book all sealant is to be ripped off roof the very first year and replaced?????? After contacting company they claim no liability for leaks if you have NOT done this. We did not even own it with a manufacturing date of June 2018. It was on the dealers lot June 2019. Anyway.....I see lots of front end leaks on here. So far even with a hose in hand cant trace all the incoming water.

We use the straps to hold our pillows in place when the bed is up. Never lost anything back there except myself. (See earlier post) So be sure to strap/tie/latch down your bed before crawling onto it.

Anyone else have a 2106DS with a queen bed and closets.
We have a 2017 model and it has the queen bed that folds; only one closet and night stand on the other side. Works great for us empty nesters!

Our DS has LEAKS!!! first time back to dealer it was front crown area leaking into right closet and one box on that side. Second trip back still found water and window on right side was leaking. This week May 3, it went back cuz right side door was leaking. Had door locked over weekend and severe storms hit with drenching rain, found puddle at foot of bed on floor. Today we get her back and praying this is it!!! Contacted WB online, they pushed caulking every yr all new. (this was not a roof thing) all seam, door, window, issues. This one must been assembled on a Friday . Love my Minnie, but we all know leaks cause mold issues, hope we got it down now.

There was a change in mid 2018 model year with the Murphy Bed, prior years had only the one wardrobe closet and the mattress for the Murphy bed folded, after the mid year change the entire Murphy bed pivoted and the second wardrobe closet was added.


The storage area over the Murphy bed was deleted with the mid year change. I have the older style 2106DS and quite like it, sure would miss the storage space, you want all the storage you can arrange in the MM trailers.
