Please explain.. I have not been there in years but had a very good experience back in the early 2000's. What was the issue?

Too much to type man. Glad you had a good experience, mine was horrible. I have heard many things both good and bad about them having lived here since the mid seventies. I purchased a trailer and to try to get them to honor any warranty work was impossible. After paying for the damage caused by their faulty work I was also asked to pay for the parts, the second time I had the same issue I was told it was my controller set wrong, I replied if that were the case all the wheels would locked up not just the same one as last time. After bringing it back to be repaired this time I was told that 2 magnets were bad it was a wear item and I was responsible for it. I told him to shove it up his ##CENSORED## I wasnt apying for it. End result I got my trailer back and didnt pay a thing. To achieve this the police needed to get involved.

Id say for sure, considering how long tires last with those brakes.

Gotcha.. Really was just curious. I bought a 2 seater ATV (at that point called Bombardier before they adopted the Can-AM name) when the 2 seater first came out from them. That is now 3 machines ago but the sales guys were very helpful and knowledgeable at that point. I never had to take it for warranty work (actually for any service) so I cant speak to their service department and I can see your frustration. Any dealer that does not fight hard for the customer to honor a warranty can be a total PIA! Sorry to hear about your hasstle and I agree with your break concern. If it were your controller all of your wheels should have the same issue I would think

I had the same problem with my keystone bullet traveltrailer. I got pissed never been back to grumbines rv but the smaller mom and pop rv store etnoyers in highspire was doing an inspection and asked me wore you having problem with your brakes? I said yes and told them the story about what was done under warranty or should we say NOT DONE under warranty. Anyhow my next purchase will be NOT at Grumbines RV in Harrisburg.

Heres a radical update, Load Rite was willing to cover the costs completely on Warranty according to Load Rite themselves, not sure why he made the decision to try and charge me also. Either way Ill never set foot in there againa nd Ill tell everyone I know not to.

I only posted here. I could have put this up all over but it isnt worth it. They are great at making you feel good with sales but the rest sucks. They also installed the brake controller in the van, and pop riveted it to the dash. WTF is the idea of a pop rivet? Its supposed to be removeable now I cant remove it. Just very unhappy all around.
