Talking What a trip

I do own a Trilogy 3850 Rl 2014 went on our first trip early October
within a day had problem with one wheel getting realy hot turn out it was the brake drum overheating up to the point that i could not touch it anymore i would burn my hand and on top of that due to vibration water fawcet on the iland open herself while traveling which did get the water pump to run and burn itself and pump in app 30 gal water all over floor what a mess.
Then my heat pump will keep tripping every time try to used it that will get look after next spring when i bring her back home for the paint job.

Took me over one hour just to take wheel off then ableto fixed properly

On our way to Nashville my Ford F450 was showing problem with 5th wheel connection took the truck in Ford Nashville and also Memphis and both could not figure out what was the problem both suspecting my Trilogy same took place on way down to New Orleans but this time Ford dealer conf that it was my 5th wheel after resetting the alarm in the truck so i call in a tech. and after 2.5 hours problem was solve and 500.00 less in my wallet.
It was the connection cord that had a bad groung

Also had a dummy who try to go around me while stop and i mean truck engine stop as well made a sharp turn around back end driver side and ran into my Trilogy good scratch around corner top to bottom he told me that they were interresting by the Trilogy i reply no need to drive into it just ask and would show you the inside.

Still enjoy our trip south of the border and looking forward to go back first week in Jan. for at least 2 months or so .

My Trilogy waiting for me down in Florida.

Sounds like a real nice trip other than the few issues you had. I hope the body damage isn't that bad. Mine is in the shop getting some warranty body work done, it had some cracks in the gel coat.
