I hope this is helpful.
Are these the pins that are on top of the door that protrude through the handle?

I'm 6' 3" and have to watch my head around the slides. Awning is only 10' so not much of an area for shade. these are all minor issues the build quality is great we have had some heavy rain with no issues. we really like the roominess,television is great,kitchen is great.we have the twin air bed couches and found the seating too upright so I took some of the black spacers out to lean back the posture,worked good.we have the free standing table and we like that also. We have the 13,5 AC and was leery about that but it has done a good job. All in all we are happy with the floorplan and quality of the unit. We have ours on a piece of land in Maine and had it delivered so I can't give any opinion on towing. Any questions you may have please feel free to ask or PM me DJB
Thanks for the information and feedback. Our last TT bed was made from bags of cement too, we ended up replacing it with an air mattress and a memory foam cover. Super comfy and a lot less weight.

I'll watch for the fridge handles.

We love Maine and hope to get up that way some time soon!

Yes, the pins protrude throught the door handles. I am hoping the installation of these pins will prevent failure of the handles in the future. We are loaded up and ready to leave in a couple of days. I hope the coming huricane loses a lot of steam by the time it reaches Cordele, GA! Enjoy!

My mattress sucked. I found a generic temperpedic mattress on overstock.com for 300 bucks, short queen so it fit perfect. This mattress is great. It's better than my 900$ pillow top mattress at home...IMO

Just a tip. If you put a heavier mattress on the bed, you will need to move and adjust your hydraulic arms that hold the bed up to access the storage.

Spend our first day moving into our new PT 322RES and am stumped on how to properly tie down the dining room chairs and the two stools for the breafast bar. The TT came with two straps per side that are fastened to the floor and one longer strap.

Tried strapping around one leg of each chair around the center post of the table, but this isn't very secure.

Any "tried and true" techniques for tie-down of the dining room furniture?

Any

I send a message to the Prime Time support group and they promptly replied with the following instructions:

Stack the two chairs on either side of the table, inverting one f the chairs on the other. Turn the chairs 90 degrees and use the straps found on the floor to secure each pair of chairs.

The stools should be secured on the couches using the web strapping found in the trailer.

I tested their configuration and it seems much better than anything I could come up with on my own.

Just wrapping up our first weekend in our new 322RES and our only issue was ... you guessed it... the bed. The stock mattress is way too hard and it soon to be replaced.

Everything else went great.

Thanks Prime Time for a great product!

Ran into another PT owner on another loop with a string of complaints about his dealer. Although is does seem that complaining could be his favorite pass time.

We have a Lacrosse 301RLS and had the same thoughts right out of the shoot. We added an extension to the foot of the support board and then moved our Sleep Number bed in to the trailer. We are fulltimers now and it works WONDERFUL. A little tighter at the foot of the bed, but plenty of room to pass ans well worth the modification.
