26 RR shake down

At Little River for a 3 day shake down. So far every thing works except TV wiring. Radio only works when antenna amp is on. Both cable and air is weak in bedroom. I wonder if I can get to the splitters through the ceiling or have to pull rock wall behind TV.

I just got my 2016 26rr a couple weeks ago, love it! Going to do a bunch of mods, will start a new post when I get started full force, already did a couple things. First thing I did was change the bathroom door, swings to the left now. Hated how it was always in front of the tv! Bad idea... Especially during football season... The knob is in the middle of the door so all I did was remove it, flip it over and screwed it in. I had to fill in the old latch hole with wood filler, and just used a black sharpie to darken it. And, the middle hinge goes over it so you can barely see it now. Then drilled a new latch hole on the other side, screwed in the plate and done.

They had my hook up wrong in behind the receiver. I pulled the font off took out screws holing it in and changed connections in the back. Now TV and dvd works both in living room and outdoors. I was hearing sound in speakers but no picture.

Your antenna only works when amp on. Unlike my old camper which had a radio antenna an separate TV antenna I think this camper both are built into one. The only time you would not use booster is if you were hooked up to land cable.

There is a white and black coax connected to radio. I assume one is from amp and one from TV antenna. Connections Must be behind tv and I don't want to pull wall while on road.

My outside connection did not come into the Sat connection on the inside plate, it was connected to the booster which caused a fuzzy picture with the booster on or off. I pulled a second cable to the front room from the entertainment center and installed a couple of splitters and duplex outlet. My outside connection now comes to the entertainment center and front room uninterrupted, I hook up campground cable or set up a high quality HD antenna. Simple change to the other connections allows use of the factory antenna, which is less than stellar. Test of the provided antenna versus my outside antenna, 6HD channels versus 101 sitting at the same campground.

26RR shake down

Well 3 days at Little River and most every thing worked well.
Unit towed easy compared to my equal weight but tall WP22.
Loved the 10" foam mattress. May get one for the house.
Antenna distribution is screwed up. I think it is just wired wrong but I believe I will have to add a (In door) FM antenna. I don't think the radio will like the voltage on the wire going to the tv antenna when the amp is on. Maybe I can locate it behind the tv wall. If not radio won't work depending if amp is on or not.

Low 40's and upper 30's each night. Unit heated easy. Floor was a little cold towards front. Used a Infared Quartz heater mid ships to supplement propane heater. Really didn't need it as bedroom stayed warmer with the propane heater but I am cheap. (park electricity vs my propane). Three days and didn't use a 20# tank for heat and water.

One very important thing and I think I heard this before. Use the dead bolt to lock the door. Got home and the locked door with upper latch was open. Apparently unit flexes enough to allow door to open.

Next trip Dec 1 - May 30we head for Ho-Hum RV park and shrimp heaven then south as the weather cools..

Glad the trip went well. I found the floor in the living area was pretty cold on cool mornings. We have put carpet down in just about the whole living area - 2 pieces. I like carpet under my feet. I roll the larger one up when the bike is in and move the other one under one seat - it's a runner sized carpet that goes between the seats.
My radio & TV wiring and reception have been correct so I hope you can fix yours.
I'm in Michigan also and will head south mid November.
Presently building 4 boxes to hold the tools I need for NOMADS & Habitat. They go under the seat on the left which stays down when the bike is in. The table saw is in the front of the bed of the truck along with the trailer's spare tyre.
Hope I've got the weight distribution about right with all I've added since I had it weighed. Towed OK with bike in. The tools shouldn't add that much weight.

I like the idea of re-configuring the couches. Has anyone tried to move them back so they are closer to the ramp? Seems like it would open up the living area a bit, and give you some wall space next to the sink counter. And, with the couches setup like this the back rest will be up against the ramp.
