Picked up the 344QB this weekend - and what a time of it. Everything took longer starting from the trip down - got mixed up going through the Chicgo area, then missed our hotel. Ended up driving the entire 630 miles and 12 hours in one day.
The walk through went OK - but found it lacking and rushed. For so called "Experts" there were many systems they did not even know. Luckly I read up on most everthing and knew the trailer well enough.
When we tried to connect the trailer we found out the 5th wheel hitch was too high. After having 6 people look at it we finally found out how to adjust the hitch down. 2 hours later than I wanted to be gone and still had to drive 6 hours.
The next fun part was my own fault - told the GPS to bypass toll roads. This ended up taking us thorugh every little town and side street with stop lights that always turned red - ended up being a 7 hour trip instead of 6.
Had a nice paved parking area so unhooking the traler was easy - and the levelup is a great option. But that night.......
Stong storms 50+ MPH winds light hail and lots of lighning. The trailer rocked a little as would be expected with those high winds - but no leaks. What a great test.
The next day - went to raise the level up - and nothing happened - no power. Luckly I had a multi meter and I am (or was) pretty good at finding issues. But you grow rusty after so many years. But after following the wrong lines several time - found it was just a blown fuse. replaced that and everyting worked again.
We had another 6 hours to drive and now we had high winds from the south - and we were heading due west for the 1st 150 miles. Since this was my 1st time with a 5th wheel much less a 38 foot one - I had a little bit of a time with the wind. But keeping my speed down helped with control.
Once we turnd north things went just fine, and we made it home, just later than I wanted.
Overall - I like the trailer and it pulls well. Cannot wait to get the unit out for a weekend w/ out trying to make a defined time line.
