Finally got the rig on the road and now it's parked at my permanent campsite for the summer. I'm in love all over again.
For those who might be interested, some initial issues that have been (or will be) taken care of onsite under warranty:
1. The Olevia TV was DOA and a new one has been ordered. Olevia? What is that? Worked during the pre-delivery review, but after being on the road the first time it just went zzzcchhh. Oh well, I watch too much TV while at home anyway.
2. Some of the spline on the screen door had been incorrectly installed and the screen was already coming loose.
3. One of the connectors near the city water inlet had a tiny crack and was dripping water. That worked out well, because the plastic part that was cracked was the same one I was going to have to replace with my winterization bypass valve. I handed the new fitting to the tech and asked "Can you use this one instead since you're replacing it anyway?" And he said OK! So that saved me 1/2 hour upside down on my back wedged between the toilet and cabinet.
4. One of the small reading lights over the bed was defective and so a replacement is on order.
5. Some of the caulking on the roof has a few very minor hairline cracks already (it was a brutally hot spring here in NC). So when the service tech gets back with my new TV and reading light he will be heading up to the roof.
1. Discovered that the "Fantastic Fan" is wired into the main bathroom circuit. Couldn't figure out why it wouldn't turn on...it had worked before! Oh, you mean it's connected to the switch and to leave the fan running I have to leave the bathroom light switch on??? That's weird.
2. Also discovered that when that same bathroom light switch is on I can faintly hear a small fan running. I think it's a fan for the refrigerator because that's were the sound is coming from. Even weirder.
3. There is only one very poorly placed 110v receptacle above the kitchen counter. I plan to add at least one more, maybe two.
I created a thread just for this particular issue:
Adding an additional 110v receptacle
Overall, this TT is a nice upgrade from my 37ft 2000 Fleetwood Mallard. With just my wife and me we really didn't need more than one bedroom. This TT has a sleeper sofa with an air mattress should anyone ever stop by to spend the night. The 829RGSS uses the space usually devoted to a 2nd BR for creating a REAL bathroom. It's bigger than the one in my first apartment!
