Wanderer, another item to check is the generator. Start it and let it run for awhile under load (kick the ac on) and make sure it runs smoothly. To start it the Lexi will need to have more than a 1/4 tank of gas, as the genny is programed to cut off when the gas tank falls below 1/4 tank.

Woo Hoo!!! Joining the Lexi team.

Just purchased our 1st motorhome, previously owned a Jayco Skylark which we loved but finding it a bit cramped for two adults and a large Yellow Labrador. We now have a 2008 Lexington 283 GTS. Satisfied with test drive and initial inspection. Dealer doing safety check and fixing some small issues that we found on inspection. Picking it up Aug 8th then head out week later to East Coast of Canada for 2 weeks.

Congrats on the Lexi Wanderer. Aside from the front cap FR uses now, yours is the spitting image of ours. Good luck with it and many safe trips.

You're right, your's looks very similar. Nice to see they're satisfied with the design. Looking forward to many happy trips across the continent.

Update from DH of Wanderer
As DW said we picked up the Lexi on 8 Aug. That day I worked on the chassis radio, magnadyne 9900, and got it working - on button needed strong push. The next day with the help of son and son-in-law got the house entertainment system working properly. Front TV coax not attached, RCA video in to TV was not attached, Wingard booster had coax cables improperly attached, the dealer we bought it from had installed a Jensen in place of the Concertone that was there and not working and they had run a rca video in to the Jensen video out - anyway all set up properly now and working great.

On Sunday DW and removed "wallpaper trim" which was mactac so it just pulled off. We cleaned up some.

On Monday Lexi went to the shop all new tires, oil/filter changed out for synthetic and a general look over.

Tuesday loaded it up and a trip to the weight scales and then back to the shop for a major alignment. Looks like our weight will be 14000, FA 4500 (max 5000) RA 9800 (max 9800).

As it turned out the alignment was way way out. With 33500miles I think it was never aligned.

Last two days just finished replacing kitchen faucet with high neck pull facet, repaired a leaking connection to the toilet and removed the water filter from the house - we will use a filter on the outside. DW vacuumed rugs and washed them.

Unfortunately because of our dog's health we have had to cancel the East Coast trip. (I had posted about his problems in the Pets area).

I guess it gives me more time for further fixin.

I believe Lexi's have a one-piece fiberglass roof which requires very little up-keep....
