Welcome! I'm finding more and more the these are not aging gracefully unless they were handled with kid gloves. For sure we can help you figure out most of it though...

I suspect people are surprised by the expense of dealer service, the lack of independent mechanics that are hip to the Riv's esoterics, and the difficulty/risk of working on it yourself without the FSMs.

No problems here, except the blown speakers, but we all know those are crap.

Right but you and I take exceptional care of our cars... ones that were treated 'average' seem to have a LOT of little stuff broken...

I've only had it for 6000 miles. From the nature of the wear I found I don't believe it was given any special treatment. It wasn't beat on especially hard either IMO. As always, a junky person can junk ANY car.
