JAMiller, I followed your instructions and now the GPS works! Unfortunately, I won't be able to use it for six months because I'm currently working at an RV park and won't move my RV until April. But now I know it works.

Ok folks, here is some additional details on my RV (keep in mind, I'm a FULL-TIMER):

I love the computer desk! But the overhead cabinet does not give you a lot of room to store office supplies of you are a full-timer. This is definitely meant for someone who uses the RV to travel but isn't a full-timer. But, there is plenty of room in the ADDITIONAL wardrobe you get (if you don't get the bunk bed option) to store those office supplies for full-timing.

Ok, the bathroom has a HUGE medicine cabinet, and shelves and a drawer and a laundry shoot. But no room (in my opinion) for towels, I carry 8 sets to last a week. So, I had to put the towels in storage in the bedroom area.

Unlike other Sunseekers where the bed is on the slideout, in this one, the HUGE wardrobe is on the slideout (along with the computer desk). I like this option. When the bed is on the slideout, and you camp in the cold, you get cold air through the slideout. This way, the cold air goes in the closet! (But if you are in a humid area, you need to put Damp Rid's in the closet!)

This model has a small bathtub. You can "sit" with your knees against your chest, not the most relaxing, but it will work. Or you can stand up. I'm still suffering from a foot injury so I haven't "stood up" to shower yet. On the other hand, this bathtub is NOT ADA compliant. There is no "seat" or anything if you are physically challenged in your legs. Here is where I have had issues getting in and out with my foot injury. I have to put one knee down (I put a rubber mat down), then get the other knee in, and then contort myself to a sitting position. WHen I had the 3120 model, the shower was HUGE and had a SEAT that was ADA compliant if you needed. Not this model. Oh well. Hopefully my foot will heal and that won't be an issue any more.

I'm back to a propane stove, my previous 3120 model had the combo microwave/convection oven. I decided I don't like the microwave/convection combo. You can't broil steaks in it. SO now I'm back to propane oven and microwave over the top of the stove. I can live with that.

Storage, LOTS AND LOTS of storage, I still have drawers left over after I got my stuff loaded. But can't store much under the couch. Only small items. In my last 3120 model, I could store tall wine bottles under the couch, and my Costco Power Station. Can't in this model, only small items under the couch.

I got the entertainment center in the overhead bunk. I like it, but now I don't have a spot to store the cat's traveling carrier. I used to throw that in the overhead. Also, when I was "somewhere" for awhile, I would drag the shop vac out of a storage bay, and throw that in the overhead for convenience. Can't do that now. Bit of an issue.

On the storage, in my previous 3120, I was using Sterilite and Rubbermaid storage drawers and shelves and such. Didn't need them with this model, so gave them to Goodwill.

As I think of other good and not so good points, I'll post them. But so far, I am loving this model!
