Transmission.....& water heater
We purchased our 2000 Rialta in 2005 with 30,000 miles on it. We had been pulling a 37' fifth wheel with a truck so needless to say we "downsized". We are very happy with our purchase and love the way it drives and the fact that you can park anywhere you like and get in all the camp spots.
Our first major trip out was a very expensive experience. We drove from AZ to Oregon and about Sacramento, CA the transmission went out. I knew that the previous owner had towed an enclosed trailer for his motorcycle and misc. stuff from Minn. to AZ and back a couple of times and there might have been too much weight to pull causing the transmission problem. But don't know for sure....anyway we now have a new transmission and all is well.
We are planning a 10,000 mile trip this summer and I have a question about the water heater? We have hot water when we are on the road because of the circulation from the engine, but when we are parked for a couple of days are not able to get hot water. The operators manual is not much help.
When we are plugged in to electricity while parked, doesn't the water heater function then....or is mine just not working properly?
I would appreciate hearing from someone regarding the hot water heater operation.
