Leaving for the Colorado River

Spent 5 days at the Colorado River this was the longest trip yet. I was a bit paranoid but everything worked out. I hit 10.8 mpg up there and 10.2 on the way back on a 560 mile round trip. After the trip I did buy a Edge Insight to monitor the truck systems, I purchased the ETG Probe also.

One issue - the front landing gear fuse kept burning out. One of our friends is an electrician he replaced the glass fuse with a fuse that will reset itself. After that it worked fine.

We pulled the long table out and 5 people were seated on the couch with 4 others on chairs on the other side and we played dice games. Everyone was surprised we could sit that many in the camper. Even had a golden retriever sleeping on the floor.

Smile New RG3210 delivery next week

Hello,

I am new to the forum but there is a lot of good info on here. We are taking delivery of our 2012 RG3210 next week. We traded in our Thor Tahoe Transport 5th wheel. This is going to be a big upgrade and a bit heavier! We added a second battery and vent covers already.

Any recommendations for a new Stealth owner when I do the walk thru next week?

We own quite a few dirt bikes. Most likely going to take a Banshee, RMZ450 and 2 kids 50cc bike with us.

I will update next week with pics.

I am probably opening myself up to weight police responses, but pulling it with a 09 Dodge 2500 Mega Cab, Bilstein leveling kit.

The weight police on RV.net tore me to pieces but I had others saying I was okay. You just have to do what you feel is best for you and your family.

What I would have them check
Hot water heater - make sure the winterizing value isn't closed (happened no mine no hot water)
Check AC air ducts make sure a lot of air is going thru, our bedroom vent was 90% blocked due to duct tape.
When you test generator check fuel gauges, they had my reversed.
Check drawer under fridge, by design its week and will break. They had to rebuild with thicker wood.
One thing I didn't like was there is no emergency exit from bedroom, the window is big enuf but you would have to kick it out.
The emergency window is above the couch right across from two doors leading outside, seems stupid to me. If there is a fire in the galley your trapped in the bedroom, so you have to kick out the window?
Make sure the slides go in and out smoothly, they forgot to lbue them and they sounded like hell. I was thiking if they are this bad the first time I run them what about the 100Th!
hmm... I think that was the biggies, you can look back in my other post for some others I can't think of.

For fun see how many times you start to open and close the closet slideout when you think your reaching for the light swtich!

Overall I love the rig!!!! lol
I know I just beat up on it a bit, and yes I think they could have checked these things before hand but as I expected it so no biggie.

2012 rg3210

Well,

We took delivery and everything went great. RV Traders(AZ) did an awesome job of explaining everything and were very thorough on prepping it. I asked them about a lot of the issues mentioned on this board. So far so good.

My truck is very level with the coach attached(see pic). I already had a Bilstein kit on it so that is helping I am sure. Tows great too.

As you can see though from the pic, we are tilted slightly due to the height of my truck and leveling kit. We are going to have 3" added to the coach frame height next week to level it out.

I will update everyone after our first trip out. Right now, we are just trying to get everything back in it and figure where it goes! hehe

Thanks for all the help!

Jkalafas,

That is exactly how mine sits. Truck is level but the height of my truck causes the camper to sit a litttle uphill. What is this 3" lift for the camper that you speak of? Never heard of such a thing but I would be very interested in it!

JDMAC, do you have the RG3210?

My bedroom has an emergency exit window... Mine is 2012 model, maybe that is the difference?
