Hi Don, I don't think you DW would appreciate you cutting up an elk in the new Surveyor. A maiden voyage close to home is a good idea, mine was 800 miles and there were things I forgot to take along. Also found the microwave didn't work, guess we could have fixed the TV dinners in the oven. Did the dealer give you a excellent PDI ? I let mine know last weekend I was not happy with the one I had.

220 backup camera

Asked earlier but perhaps missed. Did anyone purchase the Furion camera and if so do you like it??

HappycamperJr, that would be great, no big hurry as TT has been winterized so we won't be using it until Spring arrives.

We camp year-round in our 2013 Surveyor 220. We head out once month for at least a week....sometimes two, usually here in NC, where winters are relatively mild. We'd be happy to answer any questions about this camper. We love it and think it is the perfect size for two people.

Just got back from our Maiden voyage. But it ended up being in our driveway. Ha
Could not see paying for gas and park fee to sit inside in the rain. Tried out everything and even made dinner in the TT and everything worked great.
I do have questions: The dealer gave me a small cheap sewer hose so I bought a nice Rhino Sewer Kit. Only problem is you have to take it apart to fit the hose in the back bumper of the TT. With the fitting on it wont go in. That is a pain. Or am I doing this wrong?
I winterized it today as far as draining all the water. Of course I could not do the Hot Water tank. Did not have the right size socket for the drain.
Over all it was a good test! Can't wait until Spring!

Don

Don, glad to hear all went well in your maiden "Voyage" actually you driveway is a good idea, if you forgot anything didn't have far to go. I store the hose in the bumper and the fittings double bagged in the front storage after rinsing them out. If it gets below freezing where you are at, I'd get a socket and get the water tank drained, borrow one from a neighbor if necessary.

You can also use a lug wrench to get the anode rod out of the heater, but a ratchet is easier. I store all sewer stuff in a dedicated box that goes in the bed of my truck.

I never thought of trying a lug wrench. I happen to have an extra one I can designate to it. I will give it a try and see if it fits.

Yeah, I'm not sure all of them will fit, but I bought a small one just for use on the camper lug nuts, and one of the four fittings worked on the anode rod.
