GH Camper - Those hanging lights are definitely a serious design flaw. They will all break eventually. The rods are just too long to support the weight of those globes in a swaying RV. I don't think they look good anyway. I am planning on taking them both down and replacing them with something more practical.
Have the salesperson point out the tank dumping valves. There are three on mine and I was not able to find one shred of information on what each of them are. Luckily, I correctly guessed the one in the middle was the blackwater dump valve.
The first time we used the furnace, the thermostat was 20 degrees off. I ordered a new thermostat (they are cheap), but the darn thing fixed itself on the next trip. I have no idea what the problem was.
If you have a residential refrigerator, be advised that it runs on electricity only regardless of what your salesman tells you. There is a inverter in the large bay in the middle/front of the RV. You can turn it on if you want to power the refrigerator when traveling. But, I have made a 9-hour pull without using the inverter, and everything in the freezer was still frozen. I have heard that running the refrigerator on the inverter will run the battery down in about 8 hours. Mainly because the tow vehicle may not be able to charge the trailer battery if the tow vehicle battery is at full charge.
Yes, I would buy the same RV again. This is my 4th RV and I am pleased with it. Just don't let the dealer oversell you on the product. They ALL have problems.
Remember the idiom: The difference between a used car salesman and an RV salesman is, the used car salesman KNOWS when he is lying.
