I know what you mean. My first rig was a class a and gave me the most grief far and above any rig I've owned since. However, I didn't know much then and was trying to make due with what came with it. I've learn over the years though and my "per-emptive" plans have improved with each one. The last two rigs were 5'rs... a 40' and then a 35' for 9 years and my newest is a 25' trailer. (I'm shrinking as I get older LOL).
By the time I hit this one though I already had most all of my pre-emptives on hand. I think the dealer thought I was crazy though
I left the mattress, bathroom door, shower curtain rod, and kitchen table with them right on the spot. Went back later in the day in the truck to drop off the batteries and boxes, faucets and shower hose and head, mini noise maker fan, radio/DVD player, and all the light fixtures. I think he KNEW I was crazy by then.
It was extremely amusing to see their reactions, but it was just a matter of being practical. On the road full time I have no place to keep any of that kind of thing and I certainly wasn't going to pay for it once, and then pay again to take it to the dump.
Long story, but needless to say, the converter was one of the first things that got disconnected right after that. I won't say over how many years, but I finally learned my lesson... life is much sweeter dumping off all the dead weight at once and dropping in what you KNOW is going to work down the road. Knit picking at it all a little at a time as it fails is just not my speed anymore.
So I've been sans converter 13 years now.
