Started raining but the outdoor kitchen has a built in cover. Love it.
It's a small gas grill, but we pulled off dinner for 6 last night and then lunch today. Still have some leftovers

FYI, this griddle fits perfectly on the grill. We use it for everything. No flare ups with burgers. Works awesome with the flat side for breakfast (eggs, sausage, bacon).
Has been one of our better add ons for the trailer

First time out

Well we have our new 31BKIS all set up at our seasonal site. So far we love the layout. The only thing I do not like is the awning is only 13 feet wide. Has anyone replaced their awning with a wider one? I contacted LCI and the roll and fabric is only $400 for a 21 foot awning. All I would have to do is remount the bracket to the other side of the kitchen slide.

Safd18fire, that would be an awesome upgrade. I would love to see it if you go that route.
The outdoor kitchen cover helps with the sun, would you go over that also or just the galley slide ?

The 21' would cover over just the galley slide. There is not enough room between the door for the outside kitchen and the end of the camper to install the brackets for the awning. I am just looking for more area under the awning. The current 13' ends right at the edge of the door, that is a terrible situation. Its raining and you can't even go out the door without getting wet. The 21' awning would solve this.

Sounds great.. Love to see if it works out for you.

And now for something completely different....
I was reading another thread from a totally different model of TT regarding waste tanks and drainage valves.
Our 31BKIS model has a galley grey, a shower/bathroom sink grey and a toilet black tank. With a dedicated galley drain with valve, and a combo drain with the black and grey from the shower/bathroom sink with two valves.

I was wondering if my method during camping would be the best.
Currently I have only one sewer hose that I keep stowed in the rear bumper except for the ends that are in the storage area up front (accessible under the queen bed and outside).
Last time we camped with sewer hookups, I hooked up the galley and left it open the whole time.
When we were ready to leave I moved my hose over to the black/grey and flushed the black tank first, closed the black valve, then flushed the grey tank. So I ended with soapy grey water.. Much nicer to deal with than black water in the hose.

I was wondering if there would be any advantage to combining the grey bathroom and black tanks by adding another valve to the end of the Line with a screw in valve like: http://www.amazon.com/Valterra-T58-T.../dp/B000BGHYJS
And opening them both up?

Would the soapy water mixed with the toilet stuff help keep things cleaner? Or would that be a bad idea?
Also would to get all tanks hooked up at once am I right in thinking I would need 3 drain hoses with a y coupling? Where would I keep them? I don't want to store sewer hoses in the storage area if possible.
Even a dedicated plastic storage container in there would get gross over time.

Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions.
Thanks.

Hey could someone take a picture of the inside of their fridge? I need to see if I have the plastic clip and hose with a cap on it configured right.
I'm only able to get my fridge to 45 degrees.
The milk spoiled on our last trip.... I think something's wrong with my new fridge.
Thanks.

While you wait for a picture do have the slider closer to the freezer? Moving it in either direction should adjust the temp accordingly (depending on direction).

Also double check that the door is shut completely - listen for the click. I am surprised by how many times I fail to shut the freezer or frig door completely.

Where in the frig are you checking the temp? My top shelf is much colder than the bins.
