New 350F Pick it up Tuesday!

Well we bit the bullet and traded in our fifth wheel and bought our first Motor home, we are very excited to say the least. Now I just have to get the TOAD set up and we will be good to go.

Congrats on the new Georgetown and to the forum. If there's anything we can help with, not including payments, please ask. May it bring you nothing but great trips and memories for many years. Charlie

Our boys are excited that they have their own DVD players in the bunks, and I'm happy for the auto leveling, no more chalks and blocks and cranking down the stabilizers! This will be our 3rd Forest River product and had 0 problems with the first 2 other than normal little shake down items.

Congrats on the new rig. We found that the auto leveling was not the huge convenience that we thought it would be. As most motorhomes have a "rake" to them, meaning the front end is lower than the front end just sitting on a level surface, the auto leveling tries to get the floor level. This usually means that if you are on level ground it may have to lift the front of the rig a long ways (sometimes off the ground). You will come to learn in time what sites to look for so that the leveling will work it's best. I try and find one just a tiny bit nose high and I usually manually level as I just don't care for the way the auto level works.

It still beats getting out the boards though!
