Someone Got To Be 1st

O.K. someone has to start this thread, it might as well be me...

I have a 2007 Forester 3161S and love it. Used it all summer and it has been trouble free.

Anyone else have one??

Talking Wahoo!

Hey! We just bought a 2007 Forrester (2941DS) RV this weekend! I am so excited! We live in Maryland, and bought it while we were in California. We drove it across the country and loved every minute of it. We are newbies, and we have lots to learn. We've only had "dry camping" opportunities so far, but we're planning on doing the real deal very soon. I think my main fear is emptying the grey and black tanks. We went to a quick little RV class, but I haven't seen this actually done yet. Any advice? Know of any cool places in MD/VA to visit with our teenage boys? Can't wait! Can't wait! Can't wait!!

to FRF and CONGRATS on your new rig!

Emptying the tanks are no major. Make sure they are full and empty from dirtiest to cleanest. Black first, galley grey second, shower grey last. The black tank is going to have the largest diameter PVC pipe with the largest handle. The grey tanks have the smaller diameter PVC and smaller handles. If you have 2 seperate grey tanks (some don't) eyeball where the pipes are coming from in relation to where the galley and shower are located to get the dump in the correct order.

I can't help with any places in your area but I'm sure some other folks around here can.

Congrats & welcome!
Use lots of water in the black tank, and it will help.
I always used rubber gloves, and kept soap nearby to aid in self-cleanup.

Thanks so much for the advice. I've been reading through many of the forums, and the RV community seems like such a close knit family!

We do have one little problem with the RV. The back-up camera (or whatever it's called) has a circle of condensation inside of the lens, which makes the viewing very difficult. But, if that's the only problem we have, then I'm happy.

New folks just like to get as much coverage as possible and really don't know better.
Why not educate instead of criticize????

JMHO............

Suebee 0126, your back up camera may have two lenses, the outter lens may be just a protective lens that can be replaced if damaged and saves the real lens that the camera needs. There may be a seal between the two lenses and if so,it may be leaking. I suggest take it to your dealer and get it fixed as soon as you can. This could cause more damage to the camera if it is not repaired.
