Can't say our dealer missed anything and they even sent out a document to all their customers last fall on proper methods of winterizing the trailer. Well I guess they missed telling me how to not make a mess when I removed the water filter canister that sits under the entertainment unit beside the subwoofer. My brother in law was looking at it and casually said why not put a kitchen catcher garbage bag around it when you take the housing off and it will catch the water. Pretty simple and cheap fix to the mess and we see no pressure loss with it as it seem to be a slightly smaller version of the one we have in the house. We have an activated charcoal filter in ours.

It was mentioned in our walkthru along with a warning that it can fall off and if so you'll get a warm fridge.

I don't think our guy missed a thing during walkthru. Since our dealer is almost more of a used car lot and other dealers at the RV show bad mouthed them, I can't say anything but good about them.

That happened to us too...only I figured it out myself...my 8 year old is too young for us to have a SIL yet!

My filter's in a tough spot, too--but I'm able to snake a shallow tray in to catch my mistakes. I like your garbage bag idea. Oh yeah, and our dealer (Terrytown in Grand Rapids) did a super job of going over the unit upon delivery, and has been highly responsive in every way after the sale.

The person doing our delivery told us the stove hood vent vented inside the TT through filters. After reading some posts recently of people loosing vent cover on the outside of their rig I was curious what they were referring to. Well, my wife and I visited our TT tonight and did a once over to make sure the storage facility was treating it well and I found a vent cover I didn't recall... after looking, I found it was the vent for the stove hood. Now we can vent our cooking outdoors and not have fumes in the TT.

During our walk through I ask the kid who was giving us the tour is there a backup plan to retract the power awning if it failed. The answer I got was: “you will just have to cut the fabric off and tie the frame to the side of the trailer”. Later when we had the 5er at home I read the manual for the power awning, nowhere did it say to cut the fabric off. What it stated was to remove the screw from the roller and roll it up with strap that was included.

I wonder what the kid would have sugested if you had asked what would you do if the slide would not go back in.

That's funny, same with us. Only now it's more apparent because it's turning yellow like our power jack housing. Time for the Fusion spray paint.

(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!
Camped last week with my sister and BIL and their "new to them" Coleman pop-up. They had this little 6-inch torpedo level to check the level and they were just going to drive around on the site until it was level. I asked them if they had leveling blocks and they looked at me like I had three heads and hailed from the planet Zycor!! I loaned them some of our Lynx leveling blocks, since we weren't using all of them and I told them to buy some when they returned home. This was OBVIOUSLY not told to them when they picked up their pop up. They had never owned any type of camper before. They also didn't know how to get water into their cassette-type toilet. My DH and our friend, who had owned a previous pop-up, lent them a hand and they had it working in 5 minutes. They hadn't been able to use it at all this year and calls to their dealership service department weren't ANY help at all.
