Well not to defend the Company,but a lot of these camp grounds don't have the correct size wire feeding the pedestals . The use too small of a wire feeding them. That causes voltage drop and the breakers are tripping due to heat issues. Next time see how full the park is and see if it trips.

Just got of a 7 night camp in N.Ga over the 4th of July in a 2017 268rks. Had AC on all the time. Came with the 15k single unit. Temps were in the low-mid 90s every day. We found that if you open the direct vent at the AC unit but cooled the main cabin better during heat of day. We run everything full tilt when camping trying to make it break while under warranty (residential fridge, outside fridge, microwave, TV, lights, AC. No problems and this is our 4th camp. It is a lightweight build so can't manhandle the doors and stuff for sure...

New Vibe owner Pick up a 224 RLS

I hope this was not a big mistake, the vibes seem to be built as good as any of the travel trailers? Have never had a travel trailer will be pulling it with a 2015 F150 eco boost super cab weight seems to match up good. Hope no over weight problems. The 224 RLS is only 4800 lbs and tongue weight of 550 or so. My F150 has the heavy duty tow package with 2200 lbs of payload. Would like to hear from other vibe owners on issues to look for.
