Thanks for the collective information!

Hi All,
New to the forum, long time RV'r. I just purchased a red one. Read all the collective info here. Since I'm not going to pick it up for a month and the Dealer needs to do the factories finish work ( he said about 30 hrs worth) we sat down and went thru the list. Found that the are aware of most all the stuff plus they put in an a/c switch and battery shutoff switch. He had only seen the rear window de bonded so we opened all of them, three more de bonded. I confident that it will be straight when I picked it up. I'm adding two front stabilizer jacks and will do the a/c duct work and some suspension enhancements. Growing up in the industry, I understand what I got, they are what they are... It will be fun for the intended use. If I figure out something to add or enhancements I've installed, I'll pass it along..

Thanks!

On the 16ft earlier build Shasta's the rear storage door next to the rear goucho was designed wrong. The door was supposed to open with the seat cushion in place, but they had it lower that it was supposed to be causing you to move the cushion in order to open the door. They realized the problem somewhere down the line and fixed the problem by raising the door opening.

That is one of things the Dealer pointed out to me, they raise the door..( my wife spotted it first thing, she's in charge of storage.. (;-)..). This dealer seems to have together.. He has two 19' and then he's sold out.. I got the last 16 that was kinda stored in the back lot.. I'm pulling with a Ford Edge so wanted to keep the hitch weight down.. It'll be a fun toy.. We have a nice little Trout Stream down the road.. So it just may be my fishing cabin..
