Soon to be a Berkshire owner

Flying down to Tampa next week to pick up our new 2013 Berkshire 390RB-60. Will contact Lazydays tomorrow about this but was wondering can anyone tell me whether a sewer hookup kit (elbow and hose with bayonett connectors) is included by FR. Also what kind of shore power cord is included if any?

I hope your Berkshire brings you years of great adventures. We certainly love ours.

Forest River doesn't include a sewer hose, but Lazydays might. The power cord is a permanently mounted 50-amp cord.

Thanks for the reply. We're moving up from a FR Rockwood 2011 8293RKSS. Really Like Forest River products. The Berkshire is a real deal.

I bet you can get them to through in a nice upgrade hose. Mine came with a low end pos we use as a back up? Really I just haul it around for some season. Work them before you sigh.
Happy for you we love our 2011 and I'm sure you will love yours.

Most dealers give you a starter kit that includes a sewer hose, water hose and some chemicals for the black tank. They are starter kits and are not great quality. Upgrade as soon as you can and get at least 20ft of high quality sewer hose (2-10ft sections) and all necessary couplings.

As Phil mentioned, If you have any negotating left to do, get them to include your choice of sewer hose, water hose, water pressure regulator from their parts dept. It will save you at least $60

The 50 amp electrical cord is wired into your coach. It's about 25ft and at some point you will realize that you need and extension of at least 25ft. At about $150 bucks for 25' to 30' see if they will throw one in.

We love our Berkshire and Forest River's warranty department has been great with any problems

Thanks to everyone.

I've got all of this from my travel trailer but since we're flying down to Tampa can't take it with me. Was just wondering what to expect when I got there.

Lazydays has been really good so far. Part of the negotiations included a roof mounted satellite dish. And since we're at a price point where I'm stunned anyway I didn't want to push it too far. They encourage all motorhome purchasers to spent at least one night at their campground to shake-down as many systems as possible so I got to believe they going to throw in most of it anyway.

We purchased our Berk there last August.

Also had a Sanicon installed and works great.

we have the same coach you have and we love it. The dealer threw in a hose, but we rejoined camping world as a life member, great deal for vets, and got a good hose real cheap. We had some warranty issues, but Forest river and our dealer have met or exceeded all expectations so far. Good luck with the new coach.
