Gonna have to check out this "high walled" unit....I had no idea. I always thought the A-frames were high walled compared to traditional pop-ups. Glad to hear you'll be getting Carl back sooner than later.

Great news! You'll be out in the woods in no time!! Was there a specific cause for the coils to go bad? He is so new...why would that have happened in such a short time?

Just picked Carl up from the dealer and they fixed the frig problem!! Turns out there was a leak, but no visible "signs". They replaced both the heating and cooling units. The tech said it was a freak thing.

The furnace issue turned out to be the sail switch getting caught on the side of the housing. So they shaved some off and reinstalled it.

We'll do a shakedown of everything in the next few days to verify everything...including install of some new Carl parts too! Nothing major, just some little things like a carpeted step cover, new trailer tongue lock, and grey water sewer adapter.

Happy girl, happy camper!!!!!

The carpet is for debris removal. I hope it doesn't make it slippery!! If it does, it will come off.

Step carpet from Wally World was one of the first additions we made and we wouldn't be without it. Not only reduces the stuff that comes in on our shoes, but the dog will climb that step now. She wouldn't touch it before.

And hey! The step in the photo is different than the one on my older model. Mine is a single step; that looks like two.

Yes, it is 2 steps. We have the toy hauler model which has larger tires, so 2 steps is needed.

Deb & Lee,

This is your influence! Figured if two did this, it must be worth trying....plus I had memories of the last time I was out & shaking the rugs of their debris when I packed up. Thanks! Glad it was an inexpensive add.
