We are about to pick our 312QBUD tomorrow morning. Anyone have any tips they wish they had known before hand that they would like to share. It would be most appreciated.

Just make sure to check everything and make sure everything works on the trailer. Once you leave it is going to be hard to get anything fixed if it needs it.

The dealership will most likely try and rush you out the door. Don't let them hurry you or give you any excuse why you can't test a system or function of the trailer.

Buy the 2nd year warranty from forest River

Hope that helps?

Thanks. They told us to be prepared to be there for about 3 hrs. for the walk through. Guess I am just feeling a bit nervous cuz we are in Mi. So the coach has already been winterized. We won't be able to de winterize before we leave for warmer temps in a couple weeks. But we will take it as it comes. That is the whole point of the RV lifestyle. Thanks again.

I think I may have found my bathroom heat solution. Looking for a heat option for the wife's closet and came across this. http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay?...llow&cId=PDIO1 Thinking install into the sink cabinet and install new breaker for it and wa lah...heat. What y'all think?

The heater shown is a 240 volt wall unit will not work in your trailer. Plus if you do add an other breaker be careful not to exceed the amperage of your unit.

Sorry about that pulled the wrong address. They do make a 120 volt as that would have to be the one I use in the wife's closet at the house.

So I would be careful, maybe talk to an electrician or rv tech to get a professional opinion. Just my 1.5 cents.

I had to go pickup my new to me truck from the dealership that I purchased it at today, which also happens to be the same town that my trailer is stored at (70 miles from my home).

Popped my head in the trailer and she has been sleeping nice and comfortable all winter....Still pretty shiny from when I waxed her in the fall (that was time well spent) and after everything was said and done I got the itch to take her out on a trip....just 3 months to go!!
