Welcome from NE Arkansas......we bought our first TT last year the middle of February.....when we scheduled our PDI with the dealer he had de-winterized the trailer and had it ready to demo all water, electrical, and gas components was a complete PDI...nothing left out....when we finished they ask us what we wanted...leave it like it was or re-winterize....we told them to winterize it and they did , no questions asked, no charge was a good thing because when we brought it home and parked it, in two weeks we were covered in 6 inches of sleet and ice that stayed with us what seemed like forever.

Due to the weather in the North East, our dealer recommended and we agreed that we put off the pickup of the trailer till nicer weather. They will store it until we're ready.

Welcome, Nathan! I don't know how I missed a new 220'r. Congratulations!

I've been full timing in my 220 since 2012 and still love it as much as the day I got it. You gotta love the floor plan.

You've been getting some great suggestions to help make things more comfortable, so I won't repeat it. The only thing I haven't seen mentioned yet that I consider one of the best mods I've done is to replace the door window glass with tinted glass. Something similar to this one from CW.

It really seems to 'open' things up when you can actually see out the front door. Just a "mental mod", but does make the entry way feel larger, and you don't have to bend over the kitchen counter to see out.

Enjoy your new rig, and don't hesitate to ask questions.

We finally were able to pick up our trailer. The dealer did the walk through. I had them try everything we could. Found out the porch light was out, they changed the bulb. We're very excited for our first trip. I posted a question on the general forum. We also have a call into a relative of ours who has an RV to do another walk through and see if we're missing any necessary accessories.

Quick question on the pump. I found the suction hose, but the water pump itself does not look very easy to get to. I am going to dewinterize this upcoming weekend. Is there a valve or bypass setting I need to look for by the pump? Any tips on how to get the panel apart to get to the pump if needed? Thanks!

The bypass valve on my 220 is at the water heater.

Thanks. I should clarify. I was looking to see if there is a valve for the pump suction hose for the antifreeze. We are going back to the dealer this weekend, as they needed to fix the keyless entry. I will get them to show me how to get access to the pump. Also, when looking under the slide inside, there was a small loose piece of wood that looked like the slide may have torn out. I'll have them look at that as well.
