I am planning on winterizing in the next week or two. Can't be too soon here in Minnesota you know. Anyway, I'm putting in the winterizing kit on the water pump. Makes winterizing a 10 minute process. Pump is behind the blank panel below the microwave. I would also blow out the line from the city water connection before winterizing. That will clear out any water in that line to the tank.

Manuals? How did you get manuals? Are they specifically for your unit such as plumbing, wiring, etc?

I got the TV/DVD manuals, fridge/AC/Stove... all that stuff, but nothing for the Concord or the Ford chassis.

The service manager tried contacting FR, but to no avail. He was nice enough to download and print out, (and put in a binder) the generic Coachman manual and and also sent an official 2016 Ford E450 manual. The Coachman manual isn't specific to the Concord, but does explain lots of stuff that a rookie like me needs.

OK, now I get it, I did get all those with my Concord. The general manual is good but it would be nice to see some detailed wiring and plumbing. I guess they just don't do that.

Your jeep looks good. Looks like hard part is about over. Yes those goofy plastic clip screws are a head scratcher. I tore up 1 figuring out how to get out. Wiring Next ? Lol

Just remember? You know your base plate is properly installed when you have locktight in your hair!

Ran into a little conflict (DIY video) attempting to rewire my Hopkins 4 flat connector as a Hopkins 4 round... but plugged everything in this morning, and WHA-LA... everything worked!

Now on to the Ready Brake.
