Driving / Towing
Factory Warranty / Support
Ordered a brand new HW27SC in March 2015 and took delivery in May 2015. The slide out made for floor space and having grey and black water tanks were a nice feature for a PUP. 3 burner gas stove with oven, microwave, 4 CU fridge with freezer, and a fully enclosed toilet/shower were what sold me on this floor plan. That and fully loaded it is easy to tow 3800# with a 230 lb tongue weight with a V6 4Runner.
Here are the problems I have had:
First time I ran the water pump the water filter leaked. I fixed that with some plumbing tape.
The grey water PVC pipe started leaking after a couple of camping trips. Was fixed under warranty at the dealership.
Sink faucet was faulty fixed under warranty.
Toilet valve ruptured and sprayed water out the back where the water line was so it leaked all over the floor. I had to pay to replace that.
The Fantastic Fan in the roof leaked 2 months after it went out of warranty which I sealed myself but now the fan doesn't work.
Overall, most of the problems have been minor and no damage was done for any of the leaks. Everything else has worked as it should and considering my experiences with past RV's these issues were pretty minor and easy to correct. We use it regularly and it is still in great shape over a year and a half later. Towing it tracks fine and the tires are still in great shape.
