8314ss

Finally got up to Ohio and picked up the TT on Friday. Ended up staying the night at the Wapakoneta KOA. Nice place.

Left Wapa Saturday and stopped in Cullman AL, Cullman Campground. This one is nestled away in the woods a bit. Another enjoyable stay.

No issues found so far with the TT.

One notable upgrade (I think) is the 32" Olevia 232T LCD HDTV. Concertone was moved above the TV. All 3 sounds zones work great.

Drove 850+ miles and the Carlisle tires held up....kept it at 60mph. Will keep a close eye on them for our locals over the next few months, then the swap out when needed.

thats a nice setup Chuck.
Congrats!
Now that's a tv.
I'm definitely interested on how long the new series of concertone product holds up. An email from them said that they are using "upgraded components", so we'll see.

Looks like, I thought of your mod when I saw it. You're a pioneer.

You can get fancy and put casing around the opening and this would frame the tv out and hide the stables that hold the the material on. I am serious, I am glad they made the change and installed a bigger tv, with a rear lounge a 32" is an appropriate size for the viewing distance.

Speaking of Forest River adopting mods, are they putting an AC vent in the bathroom of the new units?

Easy mod, FR said they were considering it a year ago.

Just curious.

I can't speak for all of the other units but both of our bathrooms, bath and a half actually, have both a floor heat register and a ducted ceiling AC Register as well. I believe this is common throughout the Georgetown Line.

cwarren78, one thing you may not have exsperienced yet with the A/C unit on while watching TV. The Demetic A/C unit is load and it drowns out the volume of the TV, mine did any way. Hopefully the TV they supplied has enough volume to over come the A/C unit. Remember, you will be setting in the back of the camper but you are lucky you do have rear speakers and that may help. I hope this is new and improve.

cwarren78, looks great. Glad to hear everything is working. Hope the concertone keeps working. So far ours is working as it's suppose to.
I believe you'll like the Oevia TV. I bought one for our house about 1Ĺ years ago and we really like it.
Good luck and enjoy the new trailer!
