SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC - ANTILOCK
03/01/200739000101/04/2004
 I purchased my rv in 2004 and it was 2 years old at the time. later that year i found out it was subject to a recall for a potential problem with the brakes. i took it to a recommended dealer in september of 2004 (25,760 miles) and they said it was ok. i do not recall if they did anything or not. i again took it for service in february 2006 (39,000 miles) and was told the discs were scored and cracked but that they should be ok. last spring in march 2007 ((50,000 miles) i took it in for another checkup and was again told the discs were in bad shape so i authorized a full brake job. (about $2000 if i recall correctly but i have full docs and can find them if necessary) i have been reading that there is an apparent generic problem with these braking systems and they are failing at a very high rate. i now have 62,000 miles on it and am concerned i will have to spend another $2000 soon. *tr

VISIBILITY - GLASS, SIDE/REAR

 1) the manufacture, winnebago industries, equipped the driver cockpit of the vehicle with thermopane windows with an identified weakness. the seals in the windows are inadequate to maintain seal integrity, thus allowing air infiltration. said air infiltration caused fogging of the glass, and an accumulation of condensation within the glass. 2) the fogging and associated condensation caused significant visual impairment for the operator. both driver side and passenger side visibility is greatly hampered, which in a motorhome is a huge safety concern. 3) the only known solution is to replace the effected windows. *jb
