Nice toyhauler!!! I have a 22 Stealth. I would recommend Maxxair vents II. X chocks. Put 10 gallons in fuel tank and pime the pump. Dont use the first gallon from the tank..... It will be dirty.

Nice set-up! We have an XLR 29MBV. Do get wheel chocks and always put a block under the jack. I have the x pattern that go between the wheels and I also use the chocks that go under the wheels. . You will find all knids of good info on this site. You might look at an electric jack. It saves a lot of crancking when you hook up.
Good luck and Happy Camping.

Thanks for the info guys. Got lucky 3 of the 4 vents already have the maxx vent covers.

Have any of you hooked up a inverter for running your electronics like small tvs or laptops? I am thinking about going that route so I don't need to run the generator as offten. What are your thoughts.

Also do any of you know where the water heater by-pass is on these trailers. I was told it has one but I have know Idea where it is.

Thanks again for the info.

Mine is by the water pump behind a panel that you have to pull to get to it.

We've got a 2010 233slc. You probably want a second battery, we had that installed at the time of pickup. Did you get the screen covers for the back when the ramp is down? If so, be careful when you are putting the ramp back up to make sure the zippers are not in the way. The door will crush them. Also, make sure you do not lower the beds with the couch folded up against the wall.

We bought a real mattress for the front and installed an extend-a-shower shower rod and it made a lot of difference in the shower area.

I like the fiberglass siding, ours is the aluminum.
