Attention 3008 owners! We just got back from my son's graduation of Coast guard boot camp in cape may and I have a few pointers for 3008 owners.
1. The rear drawers under the bed can hold "nothing".
2. The bottom of the chest in the bedroom can hold "nothing".
3. buy a small bottle jack and put it right under the frame holding the axel's on the left side of the rig.
To elaborate; The drawers under the bed, and the bottom of the chest have "toilet tissue" for a bottom....unsupported toilet tissue, and they give way when the trailer is encountering bumps in the road. Yes we loaded them kightly in anticipation of the g forces in that area of the camper. The fix-Forest river and your RV dealer will tell you what you'd expect.....don't load them so much! Well duh! So I'm cutting 3/8 oak venner ply to put in these three area's.
The bottle Jack; When those two beutifully sized tip outs "tip out" the weight differential is incredible and the levelers can not compensate for them, so you get rocking and movement in the unit. Place the bottle jack "I have a 4000lb little one, between the two axels and catch the angle Iron on it's down leg and jack your rig back to level. ""Amazing Improvement" and the jack doubles as a...."Jack" lol
We love the rig, and the floor plan though Good luck to all! Mrtodd out!
