1st Trip in 2013 240 AIR

So I took my first trip in the new TT. I'm glad I went close to home becasue when I backed it up I ended up cutting the 7 pin cable. I'm not sure if the dealer or if Prime Time did this but the cable was attached to the top of the hitch with a wire tie around the pole for the electric jack. This caused the cable to drop down over the side and there is a sharp edge where the frame is welded together, which is where the pinch occurred. I replaced the cable and I'm glad I did becasue when I opened the electric box I noticed an issue. Who ever installed the cable had mistakenly sliced two wires, you could see the wire exposed but they were small cuts to the wire, which was the nuteral wire and the electric brake wire. These wire were right next to one another and definatley could have been a problem "down the road". Happy with the camper otherwise just some growing pains.

Glad it worked out for you. We just returned from our maiden voyage in 240 air as well. Everything worked out well and we got to test everything here on the shores of Lake Michigan. It snowed, rained, hailed and wind gusts up to 30 mph. Absolutely no problems to report. Only thing I do not like is the thermostat for the furnace. No temp measures so you are guessing on the temp. Can a heat only old school round thermostat be installed?
