1st Time out on our 2014 8329SS

Tomorrow the wife and I are going out on our new 8329SS. Have had it here at home for a couple weeks and have seen very few problems. Hoping for good weather and a great 10 days at the lake.

Hope you guys have a great time. Were going out for the weekend. Looks like it'll be a little rainy but that's not going to stop us. Travel safe and watch out for the knuckleheads.

Well our first trip in our new 8329SS went very well. No major problems to report until we got home and the tongue jack would not work. I was stuck in the up position and would not raise the camper off the hitch on the truck. Had one screen on rear window that could not get to stay in and found the one of our two awnings is on the recall list. Guess we have a few things to discuss with our dealer.

Did return to the dealer today and the replaced the tongue jack, ordered us a new screen for rear window, and the parts for the awning that need to be replaced. The guys at the dealer were great and want to take care of all the minor problems.
