I was born just north of Toronto. Can't fool me. Lol. Go Leafs!!!
A gallon of fresh water weighs 8.34 pounds. A guess it's a little more than 8#. Salt water weighs more but who wants to carry salt water.

Ah yes. I forgot about those. But since you all went metric, the Imperial gallon disappeared. The first time I drove up there many years ago I about keeled over with the price of gas and it wasn't even a gallon. Now I'm used to it but wow. Need to visit my buddies again to get my "Eh" fix. I have been living in the states now for a long time.

We've had our Flagstaff for just over a year now and have several trips completed. We have never had a problem with carrying the fresh water tank filled up. We too would prefer to have our own water, and travel about 3.5 hours to our campsite. With our previous TT we did the same thing. Never a problem in 13 years with that one.

We have had condensation issues before in the Wardrobe slide and also the overhead cabinets when everything is closed up for a few days. We usually open the bathroom vent to expel the moisture.

Yep, I will confirm that carrying a full tank was no problem. Can't see above the belly sheeting to see if anything is bowed but the sheeting looks the same . I just decided finding a campground to fill up and dump would be too time consuming so I went for it. It towed fine also. Thanks for the info.

I posted under the Electrical thread how the progressive suge protector wouldn't let a Generac 2000watt generator power trailer on this trip. The voltage would be pulled down too far before generator could react. I could only use it as a battery charger. I took it back and will try Honda 3000watt next year.

2 years and no issues requiring trip back to dealer yet, however got one more camping trip to go this year. This has been a great trailer and floorplan.

I'm no expert, but why would you need the surge protector when running your generator, unless of course it's hard wired in?

Just finished reading this entire thread. Within the month, we wil be purchasing a used 2013 flagstaff or 2014 rockwood. Really like this floor plan, as we are coming from a bunkhouse model.
What fuses should I stock up on? Blowing a fuse seems to be a common occurrence.
