Mine is a 2014. Just got it back from the dealer who did an outstanding job on the punch list stuff. I'm going to look into the second tank further. Also going to install the remote control for the auto level and awnings.

Has anyone done the slider toppers / roll out covers to theirs? want to do those too.

Called the company about adding the remote and I'm considering it. Would really like the slide-out toppers/covers. Have you found any info on adding them!? Cost, etc? Good luck on the fuel tank. I keep 5-6 gallons in the genny tank, and at least 10 in the 'toy' tank, which I have been using a lot. With your one tank that u can't get much fuel in, makes it pretty close to useless. Hope u can get something worked out on it!
BTW, my 39r12 was built in January of 2014, what about u guys?
We have been on the road and living and loving this thing for the last 16 days. Best camper/toy hauler we ever owned!

I have seen some chatter about SAT 2 connection, I figured it's the bedroom SAT, but cannot get a signal in there. Also, in the main TV...where are you guys putting the
SAT receiver?

Hello everyone! This is my first time on this forum. I'm so glad to hear that you all are so happy with your 39R12s. Ours should reach the dealer this week.

It was supposed to be there last week, but there were delays at the factory. I know that ours is a 2015 and only comes with one fuel cell. We do however, get a third AC in the garage.

I feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning! I'm having trouble staying patient. We live in CA, but we're buying it from Parris RV in Utah for a much better price.

Thank you all for posting your problems and possible fixes. I have learned about alot of things to check from all of you if mine ever gets here.

Welcome aboard! The third a/c in the garage would be a nice addition, but I do use the dual fuel tanks. It will be interesting to see if you can get fuel in the tank. What are you going to use as a tow vehicle?

Sounds like you got it covered with that truck! We had an '08 F-250 SRW Diesel, and pulled our Wolf Pack 27WP with no problems. When we went shopping for a big 5th wheel, I was checking pin weights, and knew right away a SRW was not gonna hack it. So, momma wants a new camper, I get a new truck! Our F-350 diesel dually does the job.
Hope you get your toy hauler soon, and enjoy it as much as we do!

That's funny! Daddy wanted the toy hauler, but it's Momma's truck!

I just got the call from our dealer. It's here! We go pick it up tomorrow! They even found us an RV park to stay the 1st night in! Pretty good for this close to Independence Day! Anything I should focus on during the PDI? This is our first toy hauler and our first 5th wheel. We've always had bumper pulls.

If it has the auto leveling system, make sure you connect and disconnect it from your truck a couple of times. I've had multiple 5th wheels with normal landing gear, but this was my first auto leveling so that part was different to say the least. I had to get the manual out when we got home from the dealer just to disconnect it from my truck. I have practiced connects and disconnects at the house a few times and I think I have it now. Our first trip is coming up after the July 4th week and my leveling system manual is close by in the truck console.
