Coach House RV Issues and Troubleshooting
We analyzed Coach House RV owner reviews to provide a more accurate picture of the problems plaguing this Class B motorhome brand.
1. Electrical issues
Few RV brands don’t have electrical issues, if any. Unfortunately, Coach House RVs have some electricity-related concerns.
For example, older models might not feature USB charging outlets, making it inconvenient to keep mobile devices charged. Power outage is also a concern, and so is age-related electrical wire deterioration. Battery problems can also complicate matters.
- Inspect all electrical components, including wires, connections, breakers, fuses, batteries, and battery terminals. Note signs of corrosion, deformities, and looseness. Remove and replace damaged units.
- Assess the fuse for loss of integrity and replace blown units. Reset breakers if they tripped.
- Buy a USB hub to facilitate more efficient mobile device charging.
2. Problems with the plumbing
Water leaks and plumbing system blockage are not exclusive to Coach House RVs. Almost every recreational vehicle has this issue, especially with age and disuse. RV toilet and black water drain pipe clogging are common.
- Assess the drain pipe and RV toilet for obstruction. You can pour hot water to “melt” the clogged material (mostly tissue) or some other method.
- Check the pipes for leaks and determine if a DIY fix is possible. If so, you can apply sealant to prevent the water from dripping. Otherwise, an RV plumber might be necessary.
- Pour antifreeze into the gray water tank to prevent frozen pipes when traveling to cold destinations.
3. Slide-out concerns
Some Coach House RV owners consider a failing slide-out motor and misaligned tracks indicators of RV quality issues. You can also add inconsistent slide-out extension and retraction to these problems.
- Check the slide-out grooves for any obstruction, such as excessive grease, dust, tiny rocks, small objects, particles, and dirt. Remove obstacles, ensuring the tracks are spotless.
- Inspect the seals or weatherstripping for wear and tear or other signs of damage. Replace these components, then lubricate the moving components of the slideout.
- Assess the slide-out motor’s function, including its wires, connections, and power source. Tighten loose connections, replace damaged wires, and check the motor’s electrical power.
- If none of these actions solves the slide-out issue, a Coach House RV service consultation should help you determine the real problem.
4. Issues with the cooling and heating system
Nobody wants to travel in an uncomfortable vehicle — profuse sweating when it’s hot and freezing like a popsicle when in a cold place. Unfortunately, Coach House RVs aren’t immune to airflow, thermostat, and other heating/cooling system issues.
- Assess the RV’s heating and cooling system components, including filters, thermostats, controllers, and wires. Note any sign of wear, breakage, or damage. Replace broken parts.
- Inspect the vents, ductwork, and other airflow components for obstructions. Remove these blockages and clean the interior surface.
- Check the temperature regulator or thermostat settings, ensuring the “ideal” levels.
- Consider a professional inspection and diagnosis to fix persistent cooling and heating system problems.
