||I have a Chateau 31Z Purchased new Nov. 2001. I wish I had driven it into a few Grocery Store parking lots, and gas stations before purchasing it. It bottoms out so bad, and I don't just mean scraping, It bangs! One of the few honest RV service places I took it to showed me how the frame is CRACKING, and I believe it is also bending the whole MH.
The spare tire fell off in the middle of a lightly traveled highway July 10th 2002 and has been in the bedroom ever since. I reported it the NTSB and have heard nothing from them. Four Winds has said it is not their problem. I guess neither was the carbon monoxide which was entering the MH in potentionly deadly levels. The water heater was replaced after a lot of hassel with four winds, and it stopped most of the CO. Atwood the MFG. of Water heater checked it and found nothing wrong. That brings me back to the bending of the frame and the whole MH. If you have had probs. with FW's let me know.
