The service manager, to whom I had never spoken, reached out to me and they will be resolving the issues.

After discussing this matter with the dealership this turned out to be nothing more than bad communication and they will be resolving the issues this week.

Edit Sep 15th - I now have evidence from another RV dealership who did an inspection that the fridge, furnace and water heater DO NOT WORK on propane. 3 of 4 appliances that I was assured were tested during a presale "Appliance check" DO NOT WORK.
With this new information, now I can go to the BBB and file my complaint. Hopefully it will result in a huge find and termination of the salesman who misrepresented the condition of the RV.

Go ANYWHERE else, but do not buy from Camping World. These people are extremely shady.
Google really needs to devise a way to leave 0 stars. This business would surely get a 0. As soon as they have your money they forget they ever knew you. They sold me an RV based on a huge pile of lies.
I did not notice on the lot, but the RV I bought was at some point obviously involved in a small side impact accident, as the cab is pushed off center by 1/2". That may not seem like a lot, but it is something that should be disclosed, should it not? I expected minor things to be wrong, but is a side impact incident a minor thing? They tried to sell me this RV with a generator that did not start, the logic apparently being "Once you sign for it, it's on you.
YOU replace it!" The cranking battery does not hold a charge. The fridge does not work. I now need to take it to an RV service center, NOT Camping World, and have a long list of things checked out, and I antipate a HUGE repair bill in my near future. There are things I don't know about this RV, and I have asked questions that are answered with "I don't know." I recently was told that I need to flip some shutoff valve so the water heater fills before I turn the heater on.
I asked the salesman where that valve was. He said "I don't know." Well if HE doesn't know, how would I know? He also made no effort to find out. With the other reviews, and now my experience, they truly seem like a shady dealership and I advise you to avoid them.
They sold me this thing with so much wrong that it will require my taking it in for service already, as I don't want to risk using it until I have everything fixed. That is going to mean inconveniencing someone to follow me there and bring me home, then do the reverse to pick it up.
Avoid Camping World. Go ANYWHERE else.
