Congrats on picking up your new coaches. I hope, unlike me, you're able to enjoy them during the winter.

We picked our FR3 up on 11/9. So far, so good. If I had one complaint, it would be more of a question. Why would FR not put a shelf in the cabinet next to the microwave? It's just wasted space. I'll be adding 1, but, it should be there already. JMHO

I'm thinking they left a lot for us to do in order to keep costs down. We have had ours for a month longer than you and have done a lot of additions already. Being retired, turns out I have a lot more time than money.

Can I ask why upgrade the inverter? What's in there from the factory. This is new to me.

@grotto69. I'm not upgrading. It didn't come with an inverter. It comes with a converter and no switch over.

Well an inverter will allow you to use your 110 outlets from your house batteries. Most folks have a solar system connected to help keep your batteries charged. I plan to install an inverter once I have a solar system. For now it's ok, it all depends on how much Boondocking you plan to do. If you are on shore power, you'll have all the power you need.

Hope this helps...
