Hurry up and wait....

Well, the new 2703WS just showed up at the dealership today. Didn't have power on it, but I got to poke around in it some and I didn't notice anything loose, scratched, or otherwise out of place.....should save me a little PDI time next week when I pick it up.

A few things I noticed...well, first that either the factory forgot to install my second AC or the dealer misordered...either way, easy fix. At least they wired it for 50A and prepped for the other AC. They've also changed a few things since I looked at another 2017 just two months ago. Antenna has been relocated and gone to a different Wineguard model...not sure which one yet. Some of the cabinets have been changed up in the kitchen and over the dinette. And the Corrian countertops have been changed slightly, which is ok..I like these better.

Now I get to wait until next Thursday to go pick it up knowing it's only fifteen minutes away. Patience grasshopper.

Cabinet doors over the sink was a good change. I could see that an open door would get caught by the slide.

I was thinking that. The only real change, I THINK, was that they used to open upwards on gas struts. Mine has regular left/right doors.

They will. It's only a couple hours worth of work and they have one in stock. I started to order this unit last year and 50A and second AC prep was the only option. This year, adding the second AC was optional from the factory. The ball got dropped somewhere, but it's an easy fix.

This will be the third in just over five years, lol. You'd think I'd be used to it by now.

Ditto. I have had to re-glue my pantry door twice on my Flagstaff 829FKSS. My wife left on open once and so did I.

This is an item on our checklist: Remove the slide out braces and check for open doors.

On one end is the pantry, the other is the entertainment center. Either could be an issue extending the slide. Never had an issue. I was prompted to add the step by reading sad forum posts...
