Surveyor 243RBS maiden voyage/shakedown

Just got back from a 3 night stay at a nearby state park just to check everything out on the new trailer. Temps were in the upper 80's or lower 90's during the day with high humidity. The A/C did a good job keeping us comfortable. So far, it looks like all the major systems are functioning as required. Of course we didn't check out the furnace but hopefully it will be OK. The only small issue we found was with the blinds behind the sofa, where the tilter didn't work. We were able to close them manually, and I'll pull the blinds off in a day or two to have a look. If it isn't an easy fix I'll contact FR as someone suggested to see if I can get a replacement. Dealer is about an hour and a half away.

Sounds like a good trip! From what I have seen Surveyor makes a pretty good coach.

Keep your rig away from the dealer and in your driveway where it can be used and taken care of.
