View Full Version : 2013 Silverado problems

01-20-2014, 05:24 PM
I was wondering if there is any other Silverado owners that are having the same problems with their coach as we are? Took delivery on 10-22-13 we are having the following problems as of 10-28-13-13
1. Heater makes noise
2. Emergency escape window in bedroom leaks
3 Burner on cook stove caught fire
4.Front door, bedroom door,& bathroom door have to be slammed to get shut
5.All 3 slides have gaps all around them we have pipe insulation around all slides to keep air out
6.Kitchen water freezes
7. Excessive rust on frame nuts & bolts everything under the coach

I fixed the kitchen water freeze, I had to apply heat tapes to the low point drains(per heartland instructions) I have owned many different coaches & never had to apply heat tape to low point drains to keep them from freezing

We are waiting on parts for the repairs

I was told by Heartland that the rust is normal and they would not do anything to correct it again I have never had a problem with rust on any coach I've owned before

Any one else having problems?

the frames are powdercoated from the vendor, and unless yours was towed in some really nasty salty conditions, and was left to just sit, it shouldnt be all that rusty. Last time I saw, the frames all come from lippert.
