Picked up new 2016 312BHX
We took delivery of our new 312BHX this weekend which is our first 5th wheel. Got the B&W companion set up on our new Silverado 3500 and it pulls great. Maybe a touch nose high but its already set at the lowest setting and we still have a good amount of bedrail clearance.
We had good weather Saturday so spent all day going through it cleaning it, I removed the access in the pass through to investigate putting in my PI SP. Took time to bundle some wires and heat vents but for the most part looked good. No interior issues at all everything looks good and solid.
I spent all day Sunday cleaning up the wiring in the battery area. This is our 4th trailer and they never cease to amaze me. The positive block had wires that easily pulled out of their crimps and I could turn the ground screws by hand. This may explain why I had an intermittent "check trailer wiring" message on the way home although everything did function fine.
I redid almost every crimp connection and organized the wiring. I also installed a blue sea common ground block to better isolate all the grounds with now only one good central ground from trailer to the block. I then took the time to redo all the connections in the pin box as those crimps were also subpar.
Although it only cost me time still disappointing on a new trailer. At least I'm now confident in the wiring and its nice and organized. To many mods planned to list but I can work on them now at my pace while the trailer is in storage.
On the pro side we really like the amenities of this unit. We got the last pre change unit from our dealer. It has the BAL drop frame, all led lighting, upgraded rims and tires, moryde suspension and HD shackles, bigger storage, bike rack, larger fridge etc. Lots of these I find very valuable so overall we are excited.
I like tinkering so fixing up the small stuff is to be expected with any RV.
