I just realized that you're in Portland. Alde's USA headquarters is across the river in Vancouver, WA. Call them. They are SUPER cooperative, but sometimes hard to get ahold of (busy!). Talk to VP Joe Elwell.Russ, that is super helpful. I am going to do that, maybe this weekend. Not having to drive it 40 miles away to the dealer is just enough of an incentive for me to work on this on my own.
We have a 2008 RS with 70,000 miles and over 200 nights camping/touring and while we have had a few issues here and there, we love it. I believe any RV will have something one can complain about but considering the roads we drive on they do very well. I would not shy away from Roadtrek or any other based on our experiences. They are mechanical beasts and they do break now and then. If the Agile fits and the unit is in good shape it will probably be fine. Having an RS I would be more concerned about the space. We have plenty of room but on a long trip it gets full. My two centsIm new to the forum and trying to glean some info on roadtrecks. My wife and I are considering a used Agile purchase and I wanted to see how owners like their machines. I must admit that after this post I think I will look to another manufacturer. The author seems to say that the kitchen, bathroom and sleeping arrangements are awful. It makes me wonder why he still concludes that he likes his machine. Is there something Im missing?
I like to know how high I am. Out here in the West it's sometimes relevant.The Becker is a standard Mercedes Sprinter GPS... Why would you want altitude?
I had the same issues. Ask them to bleed the air out of the system. That is a common issue.Thanks for your input Lenfagan. After a couple nights of testing in the driveway I think she may be going back to the dealership... again. After the night of electric only testing, we spent 3 hours in the RV and used propane only to heat and we couldn't get the temp above about 65°. Again the radiators felt warm and the floors felt just slightly warm but I would think in 3 hours time I should be able to get some god heat. Forgot to mention before that the dealership added a remote sensor on the thermostat and located it in the side panel between the rear windows on the drivers side. Before we had to adjust the temp. offset by about 10° since it was reading the inside cabinet temp. Now unfortunately I think it's reading the temp. in the unconditioned space in the side panel because we had to adjust in the opposite direction but 8°. My biggest concern was when I woke up the following morning the CO alarm was sounding on the low wheel well detector. I let the coach air out for a few minutes and reset the alarm. I'm going to give this one more try tonight before I take ANOTHER 4 hour round trip excursion to the dealership.
