2016 233 new owner as well

just picked up this past weekend. no first trip until 3rd week of Halloween.
interesting point about the slide and bed on one side might throw off the leveling - never thought about that but will keep an eye out for it.
we have to buy a new tow vehicle, old one max capacity is about 400 lbs more than the camper. so that will happen this fall / before next spring.
ours does have the shower doors which is a HUGE reason my wife liked this camper.
how would I find out the born on date?
funny how some refer to this as a little roo, we came from a big pop up and its enourmous to us - right now until I get comfortable towing it.
biggest change was having no view through the rear view mirror.

anyone have info on the back up camera mounted on the rear of the trailer?

Just a thought on the leveling side to side. Leave the slide side a little high & as you extend the slide & lower the bunk it should bring it about level. Love our 233S.

Congratulations on a great trip and thanks for the info. Could you share what type/brand of hitch you're using?

Born on 5/7/2015, title def says 2016. No shower doors on this one (yet). I kept my WDH from the previous camper, the labels are gone from it, but I will research a bit and find the info. I started out using the anti-sway device, but left it off the second day out, and this trailer towed straight as an arrow. Very little effect from passing semis, I tow about 58-60mph. I like the idea of leveling jacks for the slide, will invest in those soon.

I'm not really sure about this but I seem to remember some controversy on this forum about the use of slide levelers. Something about voiding the warranty? Maybe someone will remember that post and weigh in. And then , I may be totally wrong on this.

Not quite the best idea putting jacks under your slide. If your tires develop a slow leak while the jacks are under the slide you could end up bending the rack or damaging your slide. Of course it would be rare but is the risk worth the reward? Seasonal campers tend to do it , but they usually have added more jack points around the camper. A flat tire isn't going to do much.

yea maybe the driver side of the trailer (scissor jacks and tires) slowly sinking in soft parking material , but the slide jacks set on firm material? I had maybe an inch or more of settling on the slideout side. Now, would this have not happened at all if I had the additional supports, or would it have settled anyway and screwed up my slideout?

The great thing about this forum is that there is almost always someone out there, with the experience, that will reply to this hypothesis.
