New to Blue Ridge

Just wanted to say hello. We should have our new 2015 Blue Ridge 3025 next week. We have been on the Sandpiper forum for a few years but decided to move up to a BR. Looking forward to catching up on the posts here and learning about our new model.

Welcome to the Blue Ridge line. Join FROG for a fun time with other owners.
We Really like ours in spite of ALL the issues we've gone thru. FR has a quality product just the assembly seems questionable.

^x2. We have been out in our new 2014 BR and love it. Had to plan another trip next month to keep everybody happy. Lots of good information around here and people are willing to answer questions.

Did our walk through today and really impressed with the unit. Having a few add ons done and pick it up tomorrow. Didn't find even one thing to complain about. Dealer did a great prep job.

I am glad the SC dealers do a better job than the FL ones. Enjoy the new trailer! Our dealer was incapable of scheduling prep correctly with a full week's notice. They were more interested in getting it off the lot than doing it right. They are losing a lot of my warranty work as a result.

Wow hate to hear that. We have bought all three of ours from Bob Ledfords in Greenville SC. They take great pride in customer satisfaction. Everything has been thoroughly checked and camper is spotless when you get there. They go over every button, control, fuse location and exactly what everything does in great detail. There is a movie in the DVD so they can make sure you know how to use it and went over every button on the remotes to verify each worked. They had us sit in each recliner and lean back and make sure we have no issues. Some might feel it is overkill but they seem to strive to make sure you are happy and don't need to return for problems. Every knob, switch, handle, shade and window is operated by us to make sure we know how and what it does. You could say we are happy with them!

Congrats on your new Blue Ridge 3025. I had an 11 model 3705 that we absolutely loved and still miss once we got the initial bugs worked out of it. I'll admit there were a few frustrating months getting some initial quality issues worked through, but thanks to a great dealer (Smallwood's, Jackson, TN) and FR customer service, I ended up with a great unit. Wish I still had it, but my employment future was uncertain for a period of time there and I unloaded it. You'll love the BR, they are very nice units.

I should say that some of the initial problems were due to my own ignorance and lack of understanding of how some interlocks and things like that were designed to work.

You are right about Bob Ledford's. Decades ago, when they were in Asheville, we bought our first camper from them, a very low-end Starcraft popup. When we came to pick it up, they made us feel like royalty. Gave us the first-class treatment. The whole staff, including Bob himself, were lined up at the door to greet us, and we were spending maybe $3,500 with them.

Congratulations on the new Blue Ridge. We have the 2013 3125RT model and enjoy it. We spend about 7 months a year on the road and find it is a very comfortable unit. We have had a few very minor issues, but I think that is normal with any new unit these days.

Ok I do need some help. I can't find the drain for the fresh water tank! The low point hot and cold are there but I see nothing for the fresh tank. Worst case I will just run sink till I use it all but says it is full and thought it might take awhile. It is a 2015 3025 Blue Ridge.

Look underneath inboard the sewage connection for a white screw plug, probably attached to a blue PEX pipe.

Fresh water fill in near rear of RV right?
should be a pipe sticking out on driver side somewhere between tires and rear bumper. may be embedded in foam insulation.

Found one red and one blue with white plugs. Don't know if that is hot/cold low point or what.

You may have something. There is a large ball of foam back there. Will crawl under tomorrow and investigate. At Myrtle Beach waiting to see if the storm hits. Specially the tornado watch. Camper may be on its side making it even easier to check ;-)

dezolen they made quite a few upgrades. The 2015s were just coming off the line a couple weeks ago and they had one exactly like we wanted so dealer sent a driver to get us a new one. I am very impressed with the new quiet air conditioners. Very quiet inside and outside. Fixtures are really nice and microwave/convection oven is the way to go. No plans for a 2016 I think we are good for a few years.

If you have a red/blue pair, it is a hot/cold low point drain for the lines. We have one of those for the lines running from the bath shower/vamity to the washer box. Our tank drain is a single white screw plug.
