Did you check the light covers, mine had sawdust inside.

Well we had our PDI tonight with our new trailer and everything went good. Only problem was some of the LEDs were burned out in the awning. They should have it ready for pickup this weekend.

Very cool, Robmac! Plan to spend a few pennies in command type hooks. We have started putting them all over the place. A few to hold keys, one to hold a flashlight by the door, etc. One issue I had sort of forgotten about until last weekend on our recent camping trip. After we brought our SP260 home we stopped a few times at rest areas to do a walk through to make sure everything was staying where it was suppose to. The one thing we did notice was the bathroom door would open up with the flexing of the trailer while towed. We had the dealer address it and it still happened. We didn't see it as a big deal, so a command hook and one of my wife's elastic hair bands keeps the door from banging into the bunks while towing.

Well, we are official TT owners now. Just drove our new surveyor sp260 home today. Just noticed that the display on the stereo stays on all the time. Is there a setting on the stereo to get rid of this when the power on the stereo is off. I dont want it to drain my battery. Now we just need to load everything up into the trailer and hopefully go camping one weekend before its time to winterize.

Does your trailer have a battery disconnect switch?

no it doesn't, but that will definitely disconnect the power to the stereo. I just wasn't sure if you could program the stereo display to off when power was off

You probably have the same Jensen stereo that I do, and I have not found a way to program it to go off. It's a big bright display, which is what convinced me to add the battery cutoff switch.

You're right, There is now way of turning the display off. I checked with the Dealership and they too said there is no way of turning the display off. For the time being I'm going to find out which 12V fuse controls the radio and pull out when I'm not using my trailer. Ill have to get a battery disconnect switch installed soon

We too came to that conclusion about the stereo. I plan on installing a battery disconnect when we winterize it. Until then I just plug the camper in about every 5 days or so. A pain at times, but something that I have to do.

I found that same problem too. I put a 12v switch with a LED indicator light on the power supply wire to the stereo and mounted it next to it. That way I have the option if we are out dry camping.
