New Georgetown

Hello All
New to the boards & new to class A. I just recently upgraded from a flagstaff TT to the Georgetown 351DS. We haven't made any trips yet but looking forward. Any advice or tips are eagerly welcomed.

Mr. G

Anything specific you are looking for? We have had ours for about a year, it's been a great coach.

Get a new mattress - the stock one is awful
You can store brooms and mops behind the bedroom door (just slide it out, put them in and close it again.)
A sewer pipe holder made out of a 5x5 fencepost and some plastic gutter can be placed above the propane tank to keep it out of a compartment
Don't forget to strap the fridge closed before driving (if you have the residential)
A portable space heater is a great alternative to the furnace (if you are hooked up)
LED lights are a great addition (there were some standard and we changed out some)
Make sure to leave the engine running (or start it) when raising or lowering the stabilizing jacks
Get a new showerhead - the oxygenics one is great, and they even have a newer one that I think is fabulous!!!
TPMS - get one if you don't have it (TST 507 is a good one)
You can turn both the driver and passenger seats 180 degrees - the lever is on the right side of both chairs. You may have to lean it forward to get it spun around the steering wheel, but they will both turn (if you have the barrel chair option behind the passenger, I don't think it will work, but euro chair that you can move, yes)

That's all off the top of my head - let me know if you have something specific.

This is a great forum for getting information.

Had to get front end aligned on our new 2014 GT 360. Got it pre-approved by Forest River. They sent reimbursement check. Alignment was WAY off.

Camp in the yard and test everything out to make sure it works and to get familiar with everything.

Make a checklist of everything that needs to be done before driving off.
You never know when you may forget something.
Checklist like rolling up the awning, raising the levelers, lowering the antenna, lowering the vent covers, locking things down and what ever you may need to do before driving off.
And most of all remember to have fun and forget what you left behind.

that was funny.

It's this one - the Fury handheld.

» Fury™ RV Handheld Oxygenics

We had the other one first (see below) and while it was better than the OEM one, the Fury is better.

» BodySpa w/ SmartPause Oxygenics

We picked it up at Camping World because we were there - I haven't seen it on Amazon yet either.

The RV version of the fury has a flow control switch on the back of the showerhead, the regular version does not.

Took about 5 minutes to install - just unscrewed the old one and the hose, and attached the new one to the spigot.
