I took delivery of my new 2010 Rockwood 2604 two weeks ago.

The long trip out from Elkhart to CA apparently broke a wire that connected the A/C and furnace to the thermostat. Neither would work, but my local RV service provider fixed the broken wire and replaced a faulty circuit breaker to the battery charger. All was well.

Then this week, I dewinterized the unit and connected to the city water connection and found that the water hose connector to the water filter was leaking. Fixing this today under warranty. One more thing, the light on the front of the trailer near the tongue had a corroded connection which needed to be fixed.

These were simple fixes - hopefully that is all and I can now enjoy this wonderful trailer.

We have returned from our shakedown trip with our new 2604. We are going to enjoy this trailer.

Our city water connection had a leak, so we had that repaired. Then, when we arrived home, my wife went into the trailer to unload the fridge while I did some things outside. When she opened the fridge door, the front panel slid off. The bottom black plastic panel came off. I was able to put it back into place on a temporary basis, but will need to get that fixed.

Otherwise, all went well. I took pictures of our first outing and will post those as soon as I get settled.

Thanks to all for the welcomes and the comments.

Regards,

I bought my 2604 in December, near the end of a three month cross country trip in a hard sided pop up. Really like the layout, especially the rear windows! Stayed in it until mid January down in AZ before returning to CO for one of the coldest winters we've had in a while. Next year I must be sure to stay away till March!

One thing I can't figure out, is there a way to manually extend/retract the slide? I've looked and looked but can't find a crank!

I don't know about manually cranking the slide on your rig. On mine, there are holes in the skirting through which you put a tool similar to the stab crank tool and connect to a bolt to manually crank the slides. The holes are on the opposite side of the trailer from where the slide is. For example, the hole for the left side sofa/dinette slide is on the right side under the steps. Hope that helps.

Good luck.

I also bought a new 2010 Rockwood 2604 and took it out last week for a 4 night "get acquainted" camp out and just had a wonderful time. The only thing I don't like about the camper is the "fold down" shelf under the T.V. We use it to lay the "Dish T.V." unit on and we have to leave it down as there is no other place to put the dish unit, anyway when it is down you see all the wires and it is a bit unsightly, sure wish there was a "counter or shelf" to put the dish unit on but don't see how you could configure one.

If you look underneath your trailer when the slide is out (about where the slide extends over the front left wheel) you will see on the "enclosed belly" a set of about 8 to 10 screws that form sort of a " C ". If you unscrew them and fold down that part you will see your manual crank is located there.

Hope this helps.

Billy

I see screws in kind of a C formation that surround a little plate with a pipe coming through it, is that the spot? Not very convenient if it is!

I don't really need to access it but wanted to know how if I did!

Thanks

That would be it I am sure. I haven't used mine yet but that is where my dealer told me it was. I haven't opened or unscrewed the panel yet to verify just passing along what I was told.

It might not be too convenient, but it's dry. The enclosed underbelly might have its shortcomings but to me, the inconvenience isn't one of them. If road grime etc. can't get at the motor then it can't destroy it.

Good point, but those slide motors seem to have a mind of their on. The main thing is to make sure it is always lubricated. I lubricate my slide out at the start of camping season and then monthly until I hang it up for the winter. Better safe than sorry!

I just found mine and one is under the steps and plainly visible; the other one is inside a small access hole at the end of the trailer near the other steps where the bedroom is. My husband tried them out and it works. A tool was supplied. Surprisingly, it was not hard to turn with the supplied handle. We have the 2010 Windjammer
