Did yours come with an amplifier for the antenna? I think mine has one but have no idea where the power switch is for it?

Hef,

If it what I'm thinking of its below the tv to right, there are a couple wall plates with coaxle cables and there is a small button, push and green light comes on lets you know the booster is on. Hope this helps.

We love our trailer

This is correct. When using cable TV, you will need to turn the amplifier off.

Congrats Hef! I have a 2014 and all is well. Make sure pocket doors are locked down before travel. Keep a eye on plate that holds air shock of outdoor stove, mine came loose and bent and I had to get it fixed. Other than that love it. Fyi The outdoor sink does drain into blacktank

Anyone out there have one of these? If you do share some of your experiences good or bad and any tips or advice you can give would be appreciated.

Thanks

Nice and congrats, we have a 2011 831BHDS outdoor kitchen. We love the layout etc. of this trailer. We have put on some major miles over the years and love every minute of it. My only beef (and small) is the outdoor kitchen sink empties into black tank. Not a big deal on full hook-up sites but in many parks we cannot get full hookups. I found a plastic tub that fits nicely in the sink for use when we don't have full hook-up and just dispose of the water. Saves on emptying the black tank when we have extended stays in our provincial parks.. A few other notables; In our pantry I took the shelves out (except top one) and input sliding drawers, very handy as the pantries are deep. This is a long trailer you will find a bit more wobble/shake then you may be use to. For extended stays at one park (5 or more days)I put hand jacks under the steps and I use wheel x jokes all the time.
