Unplug the shore power before plugging in your pigtail to your tow vehicle. You'll blow the 30 amp fuze (up front by the battery) if shore power and TV pigtail are plugged in at the same time. (our previous experience ).

Someone suggested taking a couple of extra automotive fuzes, which is a good idea. Maybe pick up a couple (a 30 amp for sure) after your doc appt tomorrow. Before you go check your fuze panel to see what other sizes are used in there, too.

Sounds like something I'd do Deb, thanks, just went and found a box of assorted fuses for the trip!

Anyone know if I can get warranty work done at my local RV place, (former student owns it and i know they do great work), since the RV dealership at which i bought my a122 if about 1.5hrs round trip, and my local RV place, is 5 minutes away.

If they are a Forest River dealer/service I imagine they would.

Here's a link that might be useful:

Your excitement is contagious. Even though I wouldn't want to have missed the past two years camping in our A128, seeing what a thrill you're getting out of a brand new one makes me remember being just as pumped as you are.
Please do keep us updated during your trip. Those of us in snow territory will be living for those reports!

Ha ha, thanks! Right now, instead of watching my beloved Patriots.....(its being recorded, i watch later, after I know who won), I am on google maps trying to figure my best route.....don't wanna tow through those dastardly cites on the coast from new haven ct, to DC.......so, thinking

495 to mass pike to 84 to 81 to 77 to 26 to 95......less hectic, but, colder, greater risk of snow, and hillier ;/
