I purchased it sight unseen based on what I read. I hope I made a good choice... Your thoughts???
Congratulations...what a great TH, IMHO. If you haven't done so already I would suggest you google "PDI CHECKLIST". The RV dealer I bought form just south of Waco did not provide one and the information you gain from one is great. Example, PDI checklist said to fill fresh water tank, disconnect from shore power and check water pump. After filling the fresh water tank I noticed that the digital gauge still showed empty even though water was coming out of the over flow tube. Took 10 minutes to get under neath and change the wires. Problem with the garage screen not staying down was fixed with an adjustment on the tension springs. We also had a blow out on the drivers side middle axel tire after 60 miles.. I was lucky that it happened 2 blocks from the house and going about 30 MPH. I think Forest River makes a great product and there are going to be some minor issues. TH is back at dealer now for the repairs. We traded in our 2006 Rockwood Ultra light and never had any issues with it. I even lived in it for over year. Good luck and again congrats!!
