Have you taken possession yet? If not, do a good PDI. There were a few minor things on my XLR we didn't catch that could have been fixed on delivery. I fixed everything myself for under $10.00, would have cost that in thruway tolls to bring it back round trip, forget fuel costs.

Another thing I recommend if you dry camp at all, go with 2 6 volt golf cart batteries wired in series. They have a longer service life and generally will handle deep discharges better than the standard group 24 deep cycle that is likely standard.

Yes, if you only have one battery, it is a 12 volt. It will have the group size on it somewhere, usually as part of the model number. Since you already have it, you could get another just like it and hook them up in parallel.

The wiring was wrong for some of the lights, the speakers for the stereo are wired wonky, making it hard to turn the outside ones off. 2 of my 4 stabilizer jacks were only held on by one bolt, the rest were sheared off. All minor stuff there. The big thing is there is an issue with the suspension hitting the frame. FR is going to fix the issue under warranty though.

What unit do you have? My speakers are easy to shut the outside ones off and all lights seem to be working fine
