Knaus Sun TI Corrosion
I purchased a new Knaus Sun TI Motorhome in November 2013 from Lowdhams in Nottingham. In November 2015, following a Habitation Service, I discovered what appeared to be small rust bumps around the edges of some of the external doors - Habitation door, Gas Compartment door, Door to Waste Water / Electrics and another small door to right of Habitation door. I wasn't 100% sure it was rust as I thought aluminium didn't rust. However, I contacted Lowdhams in Huddersfield and they agreed to replace the affected doors under warranty.
Now, I have discovered a similar problem to another door (small door to Garage Compartment - on passenger side). I again contacted Lowdhams but they wouldn't agree to do anything as they said I was now out of warranty (even though this is clearly a long standing problem which began when the van was still under warranty).
Has anyone else experienced a similar problem? What has caused it? And is it something to be concerned about?
