We're in State College, Pennsylvania... Home of Penn State Univ. We've seen quite a few 288's since we bought ours.
I think Coachmen has their own rally each year. We got the 1-year membership to the COA, but didn't really do too much with it.

Very nice. If we can pull off a win this week, the Michigan game will be huge for both teams. I have season tickets in section ECU so I'll be on hand as well. Im actually close enough to walk to the games... But I usually take the camper up for a game or two. None this year, however.

The bulb is pretty large for the hole there. Much better light though!

My LED strip under awning has 3 burnt out LEDs, and that is the only item I have on my "dealer" list, and I took delivery that way.



With that said, I would check all under-sink fittings, they were all looser than I like, but a good hand tightening is all that's needed.



I plan to replace the bathroom fan with a nicer unit, and get a vent cover for it. The one that's in there from factory is garbage. Also going to invest in some stabilizer arms for the jacks, supposed to make a huge improvement in the wobble and wiggle factor.



I've also given slide toppers a lot of thought, and will probably put one on the dinette slide if I find one cheap/on sale, and in black, but am in no hurry for those, as this isn't a full timer unit or anything.



The Apex tows great, sets up easy, and slept 7 (3 adults), comfortably. Best of all, the thing looks COOL.

What's a slide topper? I'm new to the TT world.

A little awning that goes over your side to keep debris and stuff off it.

Speaking of toppers...I've read of a few folks with our style of TT that are having mounting issues. Anybody have a success story?
