Hooked to the input that says Cable and the one one that says Livingroom TV, neither works. Plumbing under the kitchen sink was loose and drippy. Can't figure out how to turn off the light on the outside stairs. I read that the unit was supposed to come with a Dynamax vacuum, but it's not there. We have a switch that says Front Awning and a switch that says Rear Awning, but there's only one awning on the trailer. The brand new, double A/C units can't keep up with this Texas heat, with temps in the trailer approaching 90 even with both A/C units running full bore... many questions and nowhere to get answers. If anyone can shed light on any of these items, I'm all ears. Thanks! It's not all bad, by the way; the bed is very comfortable and I've been watching deer graze while I have dinner at night.
Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the Trilogy.
I can't help you with all of your issues but let's see.
There is a switch right beside the awning switches which is for the front led's if that is what you refer to running lights. Play with the switches and label them.
I'm not sure about your tv issues but try turning the tv antenna booster off, the switch is in the bedroom under the ceiling, the booster is known to cause problems with cable tv.
The dealer probably stole the Dyson vacuum.
They also probably lost the remote which works for the lights, awning, and leveling system.
We had the same plumbing leak, solution is to put it back together, hand tighten the fitting and try not push tall pots or a bucket against it, you could also wrap it in tape to give it more rigidity - it can happen.
We camped in near 100 deg. weather and had no major issue with the AC's keeping us comfortable, it helps when you start running the AC's before it gets to warm. Also, there are vents with sliders on the underside of the AC that can be opened up for better cooling but they add to the noise and take some airflow from the ducted vents away, you need to figure out what works best.
The temperature coming out of the vents should be close to freezing, measure it with an infrared ... (brain freeze
). Btw., the temperature difference between inside and outside should be roughly 20 deg. F with both AC's running, it helps to close the blinds and put "Reflectix" aluminum foil on the south and west side windows. If that doesn't help it's probably time to install a 3rd AC :-(.
The 2nd awning was supposed to be standard equipment on the 2014 models, I have no idea why it's not on your's. In my opinion it is not an option but a must have.
Try everything out and if you have more questions ask, the folks here are extremely helpful.
I would approach the dealer regarding the missing vacuum and the remote, they should be there.
