I have been the one and only owner of this brand new 2018 Adria Missouri and wanted to share a few problems I have encountered. 1. Shower room Tap body split leaking under partition wall. 2. Shower was leaking on a push fit piece and leaked under partition wall. 3. After tap was fixed, drain pipe from the shower room sink drain pipe split leaking under partition wall. 4. USB plugs snapped in bedroom, probably my fault if I'm honest, do not try to make the bed with cable in socket, one slight elbow knock and it snapped the socket. 5. Outside water tank locking cover seized and won't lock. 6. Kitchen sink plug snapped it's homing pin in plug. Stuck forever. The caravan has been used quite a bit and came with a good 5 year warranty. But obviously the USB port is not because I did it. The rest listed are not expected within the first 7 or 8 months of ownership. .. anyone else had the same issues? Cheers
In common with many we have a Dometic Fridge fitted to the Unicorn. A few weeks ago I was present when the fridge was given a service by the Dometic Engineer. Being nosy I stayed whilst it was done and the following was of interest. 1. We run our fridge on gas a lot of the time and only use Autogas from a Safefill cylinder the engineer was most complementary about the cleanliness of the flue and burner. Saying "it could have been fitted last month, it's so clean there is nothing to clean out. Much better than most I see running on calor and the like." And as I could see it was. 2. Then got onto the Defrost drain system. For those that do not know the defrost water drains into a small plastic container that is clipped to the back of the fridge pipework and is supposed to evaporate from there. We had already been away for 10 days and the fridge had defrosted from that trip, then 24 hrs later we set off on this one. The container still had about 1/4 pint of water in it and there is nothing to stop this sloping out of the container all over the floor inside the van at the back of the fridge. The engineer stated that a kit was available to drain this water straight through the floor to the outside ( basically a length of plastic tube ) and that he considered this a much better system than having anything up of 1/2 pint of water sloshing about and couldn't understand why manufacturers fitted the fridge with the evaporation tub and not the tube in a moving vehicle. Other than it removed any chance of the tube freezing in cold weather and blocking. Looking at the water that would have ended up on our floor had we have done anything like a heavy stop on the tow that morning I had to agree with him. On our return home I have checked the tub after 2 weeks in the barn. It still holds a significant amount of water. So any thoughts from the engineers out there. I have, as he suggested, replaced my tub with a suitable length of tube. I'll see how it goes.
