Couple of things we heard that we'd like to verify:
1. The ladder on the back will only hold 150 pound person.
2. Mirrors are heated (not seeing any switch to turn on heated mirrors)
3. Back up camera, you will hear audio. Volume is up but not hearing anything pretty sure there's no microphone.
4. You should never turn on the tank heater when the water heater is on... Just have no idea what that was about.
Any feedback is helpful, particularly on #4. What exactly is the difference between tank heater and water heat (have a suspicion but would like to know from experience RV owners).
Not sure that the mirrors are heated. They are not power, and Furd ties the power/heat together in most vehicles. Not saying you cant get power mirrors without heat, but the wiring for the elements is there. Its a common wiring harness. FR has stated that the chassis is not wired for power mirrors.
On the tank heater, I have no clue what they are talking about. The hot water heater is propane, and tank heaters are electric pads to keep them from freezing. FWIW, I ran mine simultaneously at the track this weekend.
