Didn't show us the "night" part of the day night shades. DGF discovered it our last trip out!

Lou,
You said it, the manual that came with our 2011 Flagstaff is so generic, its practically worthless and you are right I have learned so much from these forums here and on RV.net.
Thanks to all these fine folks for sharing. Guess we were all newbees once but its much appreciated resource here on these forums.
Regards,
Wanderer,
All who wander are not lost!

I had the same realization as you guys. Wondered what / where that water filter went. Got a torx driver out one day and started popping off doors and found the water filter (w/o filter) under the pantry. A person would have to have childs arms and hands to get it changed, so I went w/ the external filter for $20 from Camping World and it does an even better job. Higher GPM and filters more things out. And you don't have to worry about pulling the filter out to winterize.

Talking Trailer Leveling & Misc.

Okay - no laughing now.... The one major item either I missed or was not covered was how to level my travel trailer. I know this seems pretty basic, but this is my first trailer and I thought the stabilizer jacks would handle leveling from side to side.. I quickly discovered this was not the case... (Leveling front to back was realatively simple using the tounge jack.) So, I made my first run back to the trailer parts supply and picked up a 10 pack of 'Lynx' style leveling blocks - looks like giant legos if anyone is interested. Solved my problem and was fairly simple too. One other item that I do not know about is the Cable/Satellite hook-up. There are external connections for both but where does the cable box go?? Need some help on this one...Thanks!

Things they didn't tell you in the walkthru

Things they didn't tell you in the walk thru. "Thanks for my commission you are now or your own, sucker" .

Sorry to be so cynical.

I don't remember directions about leveling either but so far I've been lucky and haven't needed to adjust. However, I've only been camping on pavement not dirt.

As for being on my own - I must have an usual relationship with my service department because some 10 months later they are still willing to refresh my memory or teach me what I need to know. I do understand that this isn't the case with many owners on this board.

Thanks - my dealer is close to where I work and will stop in and 'visit' but do not want to become a bother... so far, I have been pleased - no major problems that I have found...

only difference in this and in home is the cable would attach to the cable connection on the outside; on inside, attach cable between tv jack and cable box. selection between cable and tv is done by turning the power on or off at the tv jack.
sat connection is for the dish antenna.

Just a note, first time I hooked up cable. The picture was fuzzy and hard to see. After changing, cable, splitter, and even hooked up to the site next door. Just for the hell of it my son in law turned the antenna power boost off and the picture was clear! lesson learned. " turn antenna power boost off when you hook kup cable".
