Pick up our Roo 233s on Friday!

One more thing to do when you get home, remove the beds from the fold out area and let the trailer get a good rain or water the bunks really well with a guarded hose. Canvas has to get wet to seal the threats holding it together. The first time they get wet, they will leak! Best to do this when expecting it then when waiting up wet one night

So grab one of the fans and try it in the rca plug for each bed (and make sure the fan blows the air out the right way).
I didn't think there WAS a right way. I thought you just turned it around if you didn't like the direction. I don't think there are any arrows or anything saying which direction is the "right direction."

Ours blew upwards towards the canvas instead of down towards us. Polarity was reversed on the plug. They thought I was crazy when I brought it back for service

Some folks don't like air blowing directly on them, so I'm not sure either direction is "right." But if it's going the way you want it to, then I'd say it's RIGHT.

The walk through went great! Lots of things to learn. The table on the slide out was scuffing the floor. Putting the table away correctly solved the problem. Was very strange driving our vehicle with the camper behind me, I will be signing up for the 2nd year warranty. Checked all the seals around the bunks, and the slide outs. I was amazed how easy the bunks were to setup and put away. Thank you all for the great advise.

The funny thing was I got all the way home backed the trailer in, and then I couldn't get the roo off the hitch! Had to tap on the hitch to get it to release. Called the dealer and asked the neighbor who has a camper what I was doing wrong...nobody was around. Had to call the dealer back and say never mind.

The fingers that clamp up under the ball when you lock it down are behind the ball, so when you back in, you put a lot of force on them. Then when you unlock them with the handle on top of the hitch, the fingers stay put. In my experience, I think if you pull forward an inch or so before you try to unhitch, you'll have better luck.

You must release pressure from the hitch. Not sure if you are on a slight slant or not but make sure the trailer is stable and there is no forward or backward pressure on the ball. Lifting the licking mechanism from the hitch should not be a chore. But that was why it was hard to release.

Make sure your chocks are in position before you do that though. Lol. I got excited when we got home and after the second attempt forgot as I was trying to get my wdh bars off. Never so scared when it started to roll
