Just purchased Coachmen Apex Nano 213RDS

Looking forward to getting it out on the road. I read in another thread where somebody installed a dimmer on the outdoor awning blue LEDs. Can someone direct me to the right part for this dimmer. My searches didn't bring up specific information.

Any tips or tricks for a new owner? Will pull it with a 2017 Chevy Tahoe.

I donít know the tongue weight but my tow vehicular can tow 8500 pounds so Iím not overly concerned about the tongue weight. I donít load much gear in the vehicle or trailer and my weight is well under 5500 pounds even with full tanks.

You should worry more about your Tahoe's payload capacity, instead of its towing capacity, when considering tongue weight. Check the driver's door yellow sticker, it'll say something like "Occupants and cargo should not exceed xxxxlbs".
You'll always run out of payload Way before getting close to the towing capacity number. And SUVs have softer suspension and lower payload capacities than a comparable truck.

I'am thinking of a 213rds. Does it have an OTA antenna. I see it does't come with a tv at all. TW on that is well under 500lbs on the brochure. I really don't see it going over 600 loaded

It has a good OTA roof top antenna and in mine two places to mount TVs on the wall. One in the bedroom and one in near the door. Both locations have backer boards for mounting, cable TV connections, and 120v outlets.

Does anyone know how big the body is on this RV (213RDS). I'am just wondering if my current cover will fit when I get one or if I should include with the sale of my old TT. I have a 20-22ft cover right now.
