RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

UPDATE: Las Vegas Cruise America got us in touch back to the Phoenix (Mesa) branch to do the repair. We also noted there was no smoke detector and I had two questions about wiring. Tuesday night before we left to go to Mesa from our home in Tucson, I left the water pump on all night. Wednesday morning there was a leak above the exhaust from the underside of the RV, about 1 drop every 5 seconds and a pretty large wet area from dripping all night. When we got to Phoenix, initially no one could connect me with Robert the fleet mgr/warranty guy. Finally, about 15 minutes later we connected and I confirmed the generator work, and showed him the water leak issue. He said it would be addressed but was unsure how long it would take, but he was confident it would be done the same day. I also mentioned the lack of a smoke detector and he said he would add it. The wiring questions were 1) a bundle of 4 black wires were cut near the bumper. He explained that it was the back up sensors and it was CA policy if the sensors were damaged to just cut them off. 2) I noted there are 4 sealed holes on the bumper where the sensors should have been. I asked about wiring 7 way on the rear, and he said it was NOT wired for 7 way and I would have to have it wired from the back to the front. (I will still verify this later). The work was completed in about 3 hours, we planned to shop and waste the day, but ended up cutting our rental car short so we could pick up and return home. The leak was no longer there, (small leak at the pump. we tested last night again), and the generator was working (replaced the control board). Not a lot of talk from Robert and I felt he was not providing more assistance, but he took care of everything we needed with no issues. Can't wait for our 1st Official trip in two weeks. The 7 pin connector is about halfway back on the frame on the driver's side. The connector for the controller is wired in behind the clock. A quick search will show you where both are. I installed my 7 pin with an adapter for the cockpit and combo of the 4 pin-7 pin adapter and my own wiring to connect to the OEM 7 pin Ford plug.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Coming up on a year and still going strong. Some new tires, some new pinstripes (from a careless renter) and over 7k new miles since we purchased it. We towed waverunners to Mojave this summer and more recently our CanAm X3 Max to Ocotillo on a 14' trailer. Nearly 187k miles as I type this. The rentals I've had have nearly paid for the RV within a year. Not a single major mechanical issue so far. I've fixed the floppy passenger mirror issue, vacuum loss when climbing hills affecting the dash vents, and will change the oil for the second time this weekend. There's no oil consumption and no drips or issues of any kind are evident on the bottom of the motor. I've dealt with several plumbing issues caused by crappy repairs before my ownership. We replaced the shower pan base with a new one and I had to redo the black tank connections and vent. The biggest job by far was ripping out the floor under the toilet in the bathroom to replace all of the plumbing and rotted board from a leaky valve. We had to remove the entire "vanity" and move it into the hallway. This was a 2 day project with some help and I'm glad to have it done. I've added a PS3 and 40" TV with Vizio soundbar to the front above the couch along with a 1500w pure sine inverter so the girls can watch blueray disc or play minecraft while underway. I added hinges to the top of the dinette seat closest to the driver so I could use that storage and also installed the wireless sub from the soundbar underneath. Still thrilled with my decision to buy a high mileage ex-rental. It's basically free for me to use at this point and will start making me money in the spring. I have 3 more renters scheduled starting in March. In the meantime we will continue to enjoy it.
