Sorry guys...I'm asking a ton of questions.

I didn't get a 288BHS manual. I've searched Google and this site and come up empty. Any idea where to get one? Is there one?

Here's the lock I use. There's a metal tab on the power station that this slips through... I then wrap it around the pedestal twice and it usually fits nice and snug.
Gotta be honest... In all our years of camping (tent camping included), we've never had anything stolen from our site... So I don't overly concern myself with securing "things"... Just the family. It's far more likely I'll pull out my power cord and accidentally leave the power station than it falling victim to theft.

As for the shower curtain... We're still tossing around ideas.

I'm not sure if there is one. I'd call Coachmen directly. They'd be able to help you out. I doubt it would be much help... The ones I've read didn't contain much useful info.

As far as the manual mine did come with one and one for each appliance, had to refer to the oven one cause i couldnt light it! Id ask the dealer or call coachman.

Our last camping trip some one stole a guys hitch right out of his truck over night! Just gotta love living on longisland.....

Wow... I guess living "in the middle of nowhere" has a few advantages. I do keep a hitch lock on mine while at the campground.
I have used the individual manuals... But not the general one. I had a gas leak in the oven... Bought a sniff tester at Home Depot and made that repair myself.

This is something they should have done at the factory. I have the same setup on my 259BHSS. Very good and useful mod.

Also in reading back in this thread, also had some water intrusion around the cable tv input. Disconnected cable and it went away for the weekend. Just used HD antenna since then. Any ideas on whether it is caulking around the input that is needed to cure the issue or is it a problem with the rubber connector setup?

The guy had a hitch pin lock in it too but wasnt locked right! I put mine in the front storage.

Im trying to transfer to jersey so i can move to pa! Oh i hate it here....

CLT, my cable hook up leaked on the awning side with it closed, i pulled it off, cleaned the caulk off and resealed it. Havnt had a cable line plugged into any yet, i did change every single cable fitting there is! Lol
