Opening sequence....

Woo hoo !!! Got it (well, had it for 2 weeks now). Let's see, bunk mattresses wet or damp when it arrived, dry now & hasn't leaked in the rain since so hmmm... delivered with a screw in one tire (RVW paying to fix it), front outside light doesn't work (seems to be a common problem). All-in-all, we really like it & can't wait to take her out for a spin. My question:

When setting up, do you open the bunks and slideout before or after putting the stabilizer jacks down? I'm thinking after opening the slideout, since on the 233S it extends out pretty far and would definately shift the weight outward on that side. Although I haven't noticed the trailer shifting any when extending it.

What is everyone preference?

back in, level side to side with boards, chock wheels, unhook TV and level with tounge jack front to back. Put down stabilizer jacks, x-chocks on wheels if you have them, and then slidout/open her up.

Yep. Level side-to-side, chock, unhook, level front to back, drop stabilizers, then open slide.

One item left out of the sequence is to make sure that you have clearance to open the bed & slide out before setting things down. Remember that the side bed sticks out about a foot further than the slide. We have only been out once with the trailer since getting it & we drove into a pull through site. I got out of the truck & looked back & realized that I was too close to the utility box so pulled through & back around to get further away. Then everything else as stated above.

Thanks everyone!!!

I would've thanked everyone sooner but have been very busy. That sequence matches what we did with our popup.

We're takin' her our in 2 weeks. Gotta get the Equalizer hitch installed & setup, install the brake controller and fiddle with the mirrors when they get here, but won't get to touch anything until after this weekend (Got company & inlaws comin' - Yay).
