Well, after another four day weekend in the rig, we still love it! BTW, if you ever get a chance to go camping in the hill country of Texas, you should check out Guadalupe River RV Resort in Kerrville. That place was awesome!

Just as Big Ronnie said, the trailer pulls great!

We did notice that the rubber seal above the LR slide out was coming loose. I guess I will do as others have suggested in this forum and install washers under the seal's screws.

Anyone having problems with their fridge not working on gas? Mine ignites, but the ignitor continues to click until it times out, then shuts the fuel off.

The final small problem we have found is the door for the front jacks pops open when traveling down the road while it is windy.

All in all, we are very impressed with our unit!

P.S. I installed extra floor plates and moved the big table to the garage. I then made two 18" table tops to go in the LR where the big one was. See pic below.

I also went with smaller tables does make it a lot easier for two people. I took mine back for some work a month ago and they ended up replacing the microwave. 15 months and still loving it, even with the issues.

b1b1das,

Nice setup on your tables. That's giving me ideas for what I need to do with my unit.

I was having the same problem with the access door for the jacks. The problem seems to be that the latch on the door does not catch the tab on the door jam to keep it secure. To fix this problem I just added a 1/2" screw onto the door jam. See my attachment.

The other two pics are some upgrades I added to my cargo doors. I installed slam shut latches to the center of each cargo door and added locks where the existing latches were mounted. This added additional security for the cargo storage.

Thanks emangle, I will try the screw in the door jam. I also like your slam shut door latches on the cargo doors! I think I am going to borrow that idea.

14months on our RG3210

I have been doing allot of reading of all the posts and finally thought I would join in.
Just a brief overiview of the babble I have entered below:
We did a lift on the trailer.
I installed a reverse camera system with 3 cameras, 2 side, one center.
We developed a crack on the wall on the large slide out.
I have a leaking fuel pump at the fuel station.
I too have concerns about walking on the roof,

We have a 2009 2500HD 4x4 standard bed with a pullrite automatic hitch. When hitched up there was a significant angle on the trailer. I did a 3" shackle drop but had to raise the hitch 3" to get 8" of clearance on the bed (we go off road a bit and I have a roll top tonneau cover which inhibits the 5th wheel hitch). So I did raise the trailer 3". They cut the shackles and welded on a 3" square bar and reinforced everything with L brackets. I agree it is taking a gamble but in addition to being able to get the full use out of the 5th wheel hitch setup, towing was suprisingly better. The lift significantly reduced the 'porpusing' that was occurring before the lift. I am thinking of doing a shock kit on it to smooth out the leaf springs, all in all, was worth the money. Side note; depending where we camp and how we have to level the trailer, the stairs can be pretty far off the ground.

To aid in backing up, I added a 3 camera system. It was a bout $585.00 from REARVIEW SAFETY. The system comes with wiring for 4 cameras. Hind sight; I would have purchased a 4 camera system, they have a dual, center camera, one for close and one viewing further back. On the 2009 Silverado there was a trick to finding a power source that was keyed power. I will be glad to help out if anyone needs it.

We have the landing gear door problem as well, I will try that screw idea from an early post. (sorry did not note the posting party).

Two things I have to set an appointment up on;
Before our last trip, I noticed a crack in the wall around the large slide out. It is on the inside wall, and as your facing the slide out from the sink, it is in the top right corner. It may be just cosmetic but I have to set up an appointment to get it checked out. You can see it best when the large slide out is in, and your standing on the stairs.

The other is the fuel pump for the fuel station. While your pumping, you are fine, but if you stop pumping (as to fill up another toy) pressure builds up and the pump starts to leak.

I have the trailer in outdoor storage, so I wash and wax the rig every 3 months. I also clean and treat the roof with a UV coating, but I do it all from a ladder from the side. When we initially purchased the trailer I installed some Maxxair covers and noticed that the top appeared ribbed and not solid like my previous trailer. So I cautiously moved around the roof on my butt.
So my question is, how many of you have successfully walked on your roof? I live in So Cal. so I don't think I have a cold weather package resulting in a different type of roof.

Thanks for letting me catch up with you all.
Kurt

Kurt, I am a big guy (280) and have walked on my roof with no problems.

What is this???

By the way, does anyone know what this is? Maybe a water shut off valve? Water Heater bypass? It is in the lower cabinet in the hallway, behind the control panel.

Water tanks are full would be everyones first question.
Air in the lines to the outside pressure washer?
