General Q & A / Re: 2013 Livin Lite VRV
« on: March 07, 2017, 12:44:19 PM »
David,
I'm not sure that removing the paint would fix it entirely because the thin aluminum skins have bulges, pits and blisters (stretched). I would think the only way would be to remove the aluminum skins and re-mediate the surface under them and then apply new skins. The body of the VRV is prefect so it tells me the process failure was at the manufacturing level on the doors. Challenger failed here. I'm heading out to Utah of a month stay in May and would really like to get her fixed up before then. I just shudder when I look at that door  :'( . It makes an otherwise great looking rig look like the stuff I leave at the dumping station ;)
Thanks for your input,
Alan

Doug, here is what my door looks like. Tip downs aren't real bad yet, but that's the way the man door started. In tip down closeups note the corrosion starting to seep out between the aluminum skin and the trim. It's in there working because i can wipe it down and it re-appears.

General Q & A / 2013 Livin Lite VRV
« on: March 06, 2017, 09:19:20 AM »
Hello all,  I have a 2013 VRV (M#8522) that I purchased new in early 2014. So far ownership has been a pain in the butt. I had to have the entire rear entry door replaced in the first year(under warranty) because it started blistering under the aluminum skin. Now, corrosion is starting to blister the door and the drop down tent bed doors. This seems to be limited to doors only. As I understand, Challenger door is who made all of the doors. As you can imagine it looks pretty bad. Some of the blisters have burst through the skin with the corrosion showing through. I emailed LL a couple of weeks ago and got no response and was wondering about everyone's  experience with service. In the first instance two years ago,  I got immediate service, but it seems things have changed. By what I have been reading on line LivinLite service seems to have been "depreciated". I've had other minor nagging problems aside from the doors, but the doors are a serious one that effects the value and looks.

Has anyone else experienced this problem with the corrosion, especially in the doors?
Anyone have any thoughts on the service issue? I thought I would check here before starting to hit the RV forums with this problem.


Thanks, Alan Jones - Tennessee

As a footnote, my VRV is parked indoors when not in use. It has only been near the ocean once and that was only three days.
It has only 5200 tow miles on it and gets babied.
