Has anyone had issues with their BBQ door on their 292BHDS and the strut/bracket not holding? The bracket on mine (the left bracket on the door when facing the outdoor kitchen essential pulled away, pulled the tiny bracket screws out. Took it into the dealer for repair, etc. Still not convinced that it is solid. Any thoughts on how i can make this stronger.

Also, has anyone had concerns on their 292BHDS around the awning? I extend mine and tighten down the rails yet there still seems to be plenty of give in the awning, a slight breeze and the thing bounces and slams. Am I missing something? The arms are tightened down all the way.

No issues with my barbecue. As for the awning, even when tightened, it is designed to give in case of rain. Instead of the rain collecting on top of the awning and having that weight destroy the awning, it gives to get rid of the water once enough weight is on top. Once the water has drained off, the awning will spring back to its normal position. To help the awning in the wind, you need to get some awning tie downs and secure it to the ground. This will still allow it to get rid of the water as needed but will stabilize your awning on days that are more windy. These work only so much. If there are really strong winds out, you will want to roll up the awning to save it.

I found the water pump in my trailer. it is under the bottom bunk on the left side when looking forward. It is right behind the hot water tank. Unscrew 2 screws from the plywood on the bottom bunk. Mine did not have a 3 way valve so I would have to buy one if I want to use antifreeze. Since I live in southern Georgia, I just drained the hot water heater, all the low point drains and opened all of my water facets. That will do fine for me where it freezes very little. Be sure to secure the hot water and cold water valves to the hot water heater tank and open the bypass valve if you are going to use RV grade antifreeze.

It looks that you may have already found your answer....my coachmen has a hose for antifreeze next to the water pump. Mine is located under the kitchen sink. The procedure for my camper is as follows: Open low point drains and FW tank. Drain. Close. (In installed 1/4 turn ball valves to make this quick) If attwood WH, Pull Annode rod and store. Bypass water heater using the valves provided. Insert hose in antifreese and turn bypas valve, turn on water pump.
Starting with furtherst away from pump open and ensure each fixture runs pink. Both hot and Cold. Dont forget to open low point drains and the outdoor shower.
I use about 1.5 gallons total for the whole system including the P-Traps.

On a side note....I have heard All MFG's having issues witht he outdoor kitchen...I would think a good fix would be screwing the bracket all the way through the door and supporing it on both sides. Only catch would be how it would look on the outside.

You might want to search "winterizing rv trailer" on YouTube. Many people have taken the time to document the process with both anti freeze and air, not for your trailer specifically but they all should be somewhat similar. Also on the black tank flush...not all trailers have one from the factory. Torpedo makes a permeant flusher u install in the tank. I have one but have not put it in. Plenty of folks here have done it.

How do you like your new coachmen?

Thank you. Do you have a link to that torpedo flusher? Googling I only find links for honeys ago companies, LOL.

We like the Coachmen. As this was out first travel trailer I am already finding things that I wish it had. It's a good solid trailer for us at this time with our kids.

That said, I'm already researching out next. I'm really liking the new forest right aviator series.

Things I wished Coachmen had:
- black tank flush
- walk in shower and not the mini tip
- replace bunk house with a seating area with recliners
- outdoor entertainment center
- fiber glass roof
- passenger side slide out
- 50 AMP service

I'm sure there is more however this is a pretty good unit for this time in our lives.

We pull with a 2012 Nissan armada which does a pretty good job.
