Officially sold our Rpod 182G yesterday. Now just waiting on delivery of our 2306 to the dealer. Pretty excited to not have to breakdown the dinette every night.

The countdown is on... 6-days and a wake-up (next Friday) until we pick up the new unit. We're all excited to get out there and camp in our new massively spacious 2306... Lol. Unfortunately, the TV is not cooperating... The Armada is in the shop to take care of an "odd noise." Hopefully it will be out in time to make the trip.

It will be here soon! You should ask your dealer what kind of start up materials they are going to give you, and then load up on the essentials. I would also suggest finding a campground in your city for the first trip, because once you get in it you will realize lots of things you don't have.

I booked at a KOA about 10-minutes away. Last time we made the mistake of camping 2-hours away for our first trip. That Was poor planning... Pretty much forgot everything... Lol.
Although i know there is one included, I'm not really sure whats all included in the start up kit. We really don't need much. We went overboard last year and have most items well stocked.
Just a quick question... Are there reading lights anywhere for the Murphy bed (under the cabinet, maybe) or is it just the ceiling lights?
How's the new unit? Likes/dont likes? Any problems? I'm reading about melting light switches on some Rockwoods... Any issues there?

Not sure with the murphy bed on the reading lights. We have the Flagstaff version (23lb) without the murphy bed. Ours came with LED lights so no problems with melting switches. We were told by the rep that they are now using LED as standard. I am sure Rockwood is the same, I think the only difference is the stickers on the side.

Everything has been great so far except the handles on the grip. The grill itself is great,however the bolts on the handles are too short and the handles come apart easily. I am going to get longer bolts. There are no reading lights above the Murphy bed, however there are plugs on each side of the bed below the shelf. Each bunk has lights. All lights are LED except the porch lights. We are still very happy with the camper. We have replaced the shower head with one from camping world hat was suggested on this forum, but I can't remember the name. We also put in some shelves in the cabinets and I am going to do the same, with some hooks, in the front storage compartments that I am using for hoses, cords, tools, etc. the bumper holds outer septic hose well, however the end caps come lose easily, so I might replace those.

So KDHfan nailed my biggest complaint with our flagstaff 23lb on the head. We had the Murphy bed option, and there are no reading lights beside the bed. The wife picked up some small lamps from Walmart for when we have ac power (a rarity) and then this winter we picked up a pack of battery powered led lights from Costco (these are talked about alot through the forum) for when we're boondocking. Other then that my only other complaint is lack of outdoor storage due to the Murphy bed mech. But it's not that big of a deal, we have space or everything.

One more thing I wish it had a tall closet for hanging wet jackets and such, but that's also what the shower is for!

Thanks. I'm leaning towards putting a stick-up LED light under each cabinet.
I think our Rpod came with the same grill. That one had a broken handle upon arrival and we never replaced it... we replaced the grill instead with a smaller one.
Phil... is this the shower head you referenced?
