Well, just completed the first trip out with our new 8289WS and first towing with a 5er. First off, towing, as all say, is much nicer with the 5er! Truck actually handles much better and rides smoother.
Overall, the trip went well. Took a couple of time to get the hitch and king pin at the right heights to lock in but much easier the next time. At the campsite one of the landing gear legs was not moving. Come to find out, the bolt on the motor side must have been loose and had sheared off during the raising of them prior to leaving. During transit it loosened enough to finally fail upon trying to put weight on it.
So, ended up taking the good bolt from the other side that had all sorts of clearance and putting a screwdriver through the that one until I could get unhitched and into town to get new Grade 8 replacement bolts. All replaced and feel much better now.
Loved having the two A/C units. They will really come in handy during the hot summer months. Everything seemed to work as intended. Only a couple of minor annoyances. As some have mentioned the fridge fan can be a bit noisey if it everything else is quiet. Second, if I turn the lights over the bathroom sink on, it freezes the TV signal. Love the new glass cover for the stove, the recliners and awning lights! Having a separate galley and gray tank sure does give you lots of capacity. Barely filled them over the weekend.
Looking forward to camping in it the rest of the summer!
