Small issues?

I'm trying to find a center console that doesn't look like it came from Wal Mart.
I've got stuff and need a place for it.

The screen door is as flimsy as I've ever seen, doesn't look easy to upgrade.

Closet walls and cabinet walls are paper thin, hard to mount shelves and/or closet hardware to paper.

Hydraulic levelers kicked the breaker first time I auto-leveled. I found the breaker right before I set the f-ing thing on fire. It ain't obvious.

No map light, or any light at all in the front.

A lot less storage space than my Winnebego Sightseer, a lot less. But I knew that going in, just forgot how much crap we had in the other unit. Seems funny to have to downsize in a bigger coach.

BUT it sure is pretty and my wife loves it. I'll fix the little stuff.

Where is the breaker for the levelers?

The "basement" door just to the rear of the stairs. There is a breaker to the top/left of the wiring you see (red switch arm). I was also told that there may be a second breaker to the right on some older models by FR employee, but I haven't spoken with a FR3 owner yet who has a second breaker.

Yes, I popped the breaker the first time, too. The coach stayed elevated for an extra day until someone could come up with the answer. Had the hacksaw all sharpened up and ready to go. Very frustrating.

Mine has two, both in the battery compartment. There is, what looks like, a reset button in the middle of the breaker and I pushed that about 100 time with no results. However, there is a little red plastic arm that sticks out of the side of the breaker at a 45 degree angle when popped. You have to push that back in to the body of the unit. I was on the phone with the dealership for over an hour and yes, it is frustrating. The breakers are on the bulkhead behind the batteries and you almost have to crawl in to reach them, no small feat with a cell phone to your ear. I'm fine now and have put the torch away. I did call the FR tech help line, I think it's called Coach Works and the tech on the line was no help at all, he didn't have a clue. It was the service manager at the dealership who stayed late to help me.
