New Coachman 19SQX

Just picked up our new 2012 Coachman Freedom express 19SQX. Anyone have thoughts, tips, tricks or things to watch out for? Currently backyard camping to get everything in place.

ok the missus came up with a great question. How do you know when your propane is running low? Before the stove and fridge goes dead?

the only real way to know is to weight the propane tank.

our Roo has a tank selector that turns green or red, depending on supply.
i think it starts to change from green to red before it gets empty, but i'm not sure. also, you can tell by the way the burner's flame behaves, when it's getting low.

Dave,
How do you like the 19SQX? I am trying to decide between it and a Rockwood Roo. Any likes, dislikes I should know about before making my decision? I would be towing with a 2012 Toyota Tacoma V6.
Thanks,
Chuck Fox

Dan,
How do you like your Roo? I am trying to decide between a 183 and a Freedom Express 19SQX.
Any thoughts?

Love the 19 sqx. Great for the missus and I. Pulls like a parachute with the blazer though. Passed everything but the gas station with our trip to NY. Get the electric front jack. I dont go camping to work hard. That and the dewalt drill for the leveling jacks..... Gotta run, Capt n Coke is callin my name..
