We got a 35-12 in November and haven't had a chance to use it yet. Trying to put a shakedown trip together for next weekend, but I have a rather long "honey-do list" at home. Definetly taking it out before our road trip to Va. Beach in May. Had a few minor issues with our PDI, and dealer wanted me to come back to fix it. I did the repairs myself, just have to figure out how to adjust the rear screen on the garage cause it won't stay down.
Had the same problem. Was fixed at PDI. The took the cover off and adjusted the tension spring inside. Hope this helps

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!!

Still waiting on parts for warranty repair....also trying to get the right tv bracket for the master bedroom that also works with the bracket outside. Anyone know the model number or part number that I need? Don't know why they put the bracket for the tv on the outside of the camper but don't give you the mount for the inside? My salesman doesn't seem to know which parts I need...he priced a kit that cost 240.00, but handed me a single pivot only mount...that doesn't work with the mount outside...and this part could only be worth 70-80 bucks. I need the one that mounts inside, extends and swivels. You can see it in the end of this video if you watch the link. Any suggestions?

trying to decide between the 380 AMP and the 395 Amp models. Can those who own them give me a quick hit and miss with what they like and dislike? Thanks
