  1. Also your “Handsfree” is gone to with the removal of the module! If you have your cellphone on the Bluetooth system you now have to take your eyes off the road to touch the screen to answer a call, instead a botton on the steering wheel. And! They are not offering the new system that they have started putting on the 2017 models that repairs this problem to people with the old module system that are still under factory warranty! Not what we paid for Winnebago!!!

  2. Winnebago needs to deal with this problem. Simply removing a ton of features isn’t an acceptable solution. There’s a problem and they simply disconnect the entire steering wheel controls and bluetooth? No.
