Seriously... We are just looking for tips for our first time ... Things to watch for or do on our shakedown.
Thank you in advance !!!
Congrats on your new TT. I think you may be referring to the 171RBXL. I am not seeing any 171RBXM units, unless it is this years newest addition to the Cruise-Lites, which is possible. There is also a Wildwood "sister" to this unit.
If you do have the 171RBXL, the reason you are not seeing much information on them is due to their being a NEW model production for 2016. They are mainly a couples TT. Perfect size for a couple with plenty of space, IMO. We also have one. Love it very much. Haven't found anything we dislike about it. Love the storage space. Plenty of it for whatever you have to carry. We are are still amazed at how much space we have still left over. And the BATHROOM..... perfect layout with plenty of room to move around in.
On our initial "shake-down" we didn't find any defects, or non-working items, which is always a plus. Everything works as it should with no problems. Seems to be a very well made TT. An easy tower as well.
A lot of little perks that came with this unit. We are still having fun experimenting, exploring and enjoying it. Especially with the outdoor built-in rope lighting, and its many colors. Which interior did you get? Ours is the Camel interior. I know they come in Camel and Onyx.
A suggestion would be to invest, if you haven't already, in a surge protector. This was a must for us before we even took it out on its maiden voyage. Like a new parent here protecting its young. Just extra protection for your newby.
As others said, do a thorough walk through, take notes, take it out on a maiden voyage, get the feel of it, explore, and if you need other input the forum is here at your disposal.
Most of all
