Lex. 2006 with 3 slides

Hello, we just purchased a used 2006 Lexington 283 with 3 slides. Just brought it home tonight. Very excited. Started with a tent; went to pop-up; went to trailer; went to class C; went to newer class C; went to class A; went to towing 39' 5th wheel (which we hated) and now own Lex. 283 which we feel is the answer for us. We are senior citizens/retired. We will tow Jeep behind (towed same vehicle with Class A). First trip will take place on Aug. 7th to Michigan to visit our son/5 grandchildren. We'll post our experience upon our return.

Welcome to FRF. We own a 2007 Lexinton 283gts and love it. It's perfect for our needs. Not too big and not too small; just right for two.

Hi, we had a great trip to Michigan in our 283gts. Perfect for us as well! Great for 2; worked for 3; was tough with 8 using bath and cooking facilities but it did work as other 6 slept in tent on our site. Any comments on unit that you have discovered? We noticed there was a leak in bedroom closet closest to rear but appears it was fixed by prior owner. We had a day of heavy rain and no leaks.
I've read there is a switch on the panel of the water heater to make it run on electric? Do you know if this is true?

Glad you had a good trip. Our dealer showed us a switch in the water heater panel. Look carefully caused I missed it the first time I looked for it. The technician advised us not to use electricity during the summer months and rely on the gas which we are doing and it works fine.In the summer as you know we need to use the air conditioner and it was causing overload. You can't use more than 30 amps etc. I've had problems with leaks especially in the slide of the bedroom. The water came in from the seam at the bottom of the fasur( not sure of spelling) of the slide. Hope this helps.
