Finally Home

Finally brought the 2011 831FKBSS home today.

17 weeks (to the day) from ordering it. Pictures to follow tomorrow. (If the weather permits.)

We picked up ours in January and love it. Only difference is the minimal carpet and darker finish on the Kitchen. Already added lots of mods to address minor inconviences but love the camper overall. Hope you enjoy the new TT.

Glad to hear you are enjoying yours, and I'm sure we will too! Thanks! I'm curious what mods you have done...I have already started on some myself.

Added a switch with light to turn on the water heater in front of the sink (don't have to use CB or switch outside), Added two outlets powered seperately from the 20 amp outlet at the campground recepticle (allows the wife to use hairdryer or run electric heater and use microwave and coffeemaker at the same time), installed a square hamper under countertop in bathroom (not really a mod but did have to pull the toilet to get it there), Changed out the thermostat to a Hunter nonprogrammable unit (just this past weekend), Added vinyl flooring to trap any moisture and dirt in the outside storage area under the bed, put a door stop on the sliding bedroom door to prevent the door from coming off the track when traveling, added vinyl flooring to front outside storage to prevent moisture and dirt from traveling into the kitchen via the inside cabinet opening, installed a coat rack in bedroom for hanging clothing and another set of hooks for dog leashes and keys in the living area, changed out the shower head to an Oxegenics (sp?) head (love it) and added a few hooks and shelves in the shower. Looking at putting Eternabond tape on the roof next.

If you got the RVQ with your unit make sure the gas hose is long enough to reach with the unit installed. Ours wasn't but fortunately they had left two hoses in our TT and I just attached them together to make it work. Also the 3 foot of sewer hose they give you is good for Nothing! Be sure and get a longer one before going camping and not being able to dump your tanks. We had the video jump but Bob fixed that by sending a kit, also the audio from the Television was hooked up wrong to our Concertone Unit and it took me a while to figure it out....

Enjoy!
