Possibly to prove your point, ours came wired for the 2nd AC so even though we don't have the 2nd AC we do have 50AMP and thus far we have never tripped a breaker. We use EL water the resi fridge the AC and the microwave at the same time.... Here I've been complaining about the large 50AMP cord - guess I should be grateful.

Here's an update from the campsite though: I figured out the wife had a flat iron AND blow dryer plugged up and running at the same time. Ac was running but little else, and we tripped. Earlier this am we ran micro, ac, coffee pot, and did a shower so I think the trailer probably does hold its own at 30 amps. Blow dryer and flat iron...not so much!

Hopefully I get all the bugs worked out before warranty is out. Now I have to shop it for a bubble in the laminate on the bunk slide.

Just got back from a 10 day trip. About 1500 miles on the 312 and we are very pleased with her. There are a few things that make you wonder if FR designers actually camp in the units lol. Like the master bed lights - why can't they put them behind your head rather than in your eyes when you lay down... Even a valance would help... But the big bonus is that with the warmer ground water temp and you guys advice we didn't have any issues with the hot water keeping up. - Thanks! As a matter of fact in Gulf Shores we almost couldn't run it out!
I did however clip a retread on the interstate and broke off the rear stabilizer motor. What should be $125 motor appears to be $300. After reading the many issues these have on the forum I'm wondering about just going with manual jacks? What have your experiences been?

'Stabilizers' don't stabilize very well. they do not hold any weight either. I put in the front a set of 'Sav-a-Jac' brackets and added scissor jacks to the front (just behind the stabilizers). This will hold up the weight of the front and relieve some pressure weight off of the jack. Just this year I put some scissor jacks on the back.
