Just to give a quick update we sold our Flagstaff recently and upgraded to a fifth wheel, my employer is relocating us and we decided to go fulltiming sooner than we expected. The dealer gave us an outstanding deal on the trade-in for the Flagstaff, far better than I would have expected so the depreciation hit wasnt as bad. I see that as a measure of the quality of a trailer is how fast it depreciates in value. The salesman told us they sold it within just a few days of being on the lot. Hope the new owners enjoy it as much as we did.

Cool! Happy trails in the fifth wheel. I will be de-winterizing this weekend. Checked the inside of the trailer a few days ago. Looks good! I put 3 of the Dri-Z-Air dehumidifiers inside over the winter and I would estimate they pulled out about a liter of water (combined). These things really work. Not a speck of mildew in sight.

Interesting u say that WilsonSeattle.. when we traded in our old one (Rockwood8314SS) for the Flagstaff 832IKBS.. the dealer had it SOLD before we took delivery on the new one. and I'm SURE he had quite a margin on it! Good luck with the 5th wheel!

Update on new 2013 832 IKBS full timing

I am getting ready to mount a 24" Vizio led tv in the bedroom. Just how much of that area has a backer board. I really don't want to drill into air..

Super write up. We have the same exact rv. I guess I missed the electric portion of the gas/elec water heater. How do I turn on the electric portion so as to not use up my propane?

There is a switch on the panel on the wall in front of the entry door. Do not turn this on if there is not water in the water heater. The element will go poof.

Should be a switch on the water heater that you access from the outside. Just make sure it has water in it to not burn up the element.

I've been using that switch on both trips this year. When that switch and it's light is on does that mean I'm not burning propane?

With the light on, the propane will only be used when heating the water. You can hear the burner when it is on. It does not come on very often after heating the water. We usually turn the switch off when going to bed and then turn it on first thing in the morning. The water heats up very quickly.
