Post a link to your photos when you can. I'm sure you'll take pics, won't you?


It won't be until after Labor Day weekend so I have a few weeks to prepare. Pictures.. sure. Everyone like pictures of camping on the beach with full hookups. It will be the first time to Camp Pendleton and thier Del Mar beach campground. Has anyone been there before?

Congrats on the shake-down cruise.
I am also fighting the battle with those ac vents. Need a better approach then rolled up toilet paper fix tho ! Wife won't let me get away with that. I was thinking maybe those little "popcorn" things you get in packaging...let me know what you work out.
Also, on the front jacks, when I retracted them, there is no "stop" except the in-line fuse blows. The fuse is in the red wire from the battery. Of course I checked my fuse box for this, finally found the in-line fuse that was hidden out of sight.
Be safe out there.

Nights camped in 2010:77,and still on the road.

I'm still going to try the O-Rings first.
I did notify my dealer about the vents.
We will see what they will do.

My dealer has a complete set of replacement AC vents waiting for me to show up for the install. For the time being, clothespins clipped into the slats are the solution.

Same here. It seems it is a known common problem.

Checked out everything before departure like wheels , brakes, tire pressure and started up the refrigerator on propane.

The trailer pulled very easy and was running about 65 mph on good highways until California when I have to drop down to 55 mph. Parked and leveled the trailer and powered everything up. Front legs as well as rear stabilizers worked flawlessly without any blown fuses. Slide worked great with no blown fuses. Oh power was a solid 118 volts. The 15,000 BTU upgrade AC worked like a champ but those stupid vents in the ceiling kept closing. ( SEE PIC) I just put a piece of rolled up toilet paper in all of them to keep them open. One morning the temp was a chilly 56 degrees so I decided to check out the heater. Started up and worked great.

I used to RVBBQ which was easy and cooked 3 meals on it. I still haven't cleaned it yet.

Lights, ZX700, LCD TV was great but I had to change a few wires do the ZX700 had the TV as an input. They had the TV hooked up to an output instead of the input. No big deal.

Had a chance to wax the rig and installed the eternabond tape on the roof and used exactly 49 ft of the 50 ft roll. The 1 ft that is left is my emergency repair.

All my grey and black water tanks were marked and hooked up properly.

Bottom line we had a great time!
Silly question; Why do you have to install eternabond tape on a new camper?
