Downloaded all the camper manuals to my puter. Plans are to make the files readily available from any cyberspace device. Organized a large 3 ring folder with all the manuals in sleeves.
Hope I never have to refer to them

I did the binder thing with all of our manuals too today. After I got home from work, I just went outside and sat inside her for a while. Looked around, listened to the rain, and realized how much my husband must love me to let me talk him into this purchase. I am so grateful for all that I have.

After I mounted the hose reel I checked it out with jumper wires, removed the jumper wires and evidently CRS kicked in and I never permanently wired it. DUH! As for the refrigerator fans, checked voltage at switch-GOOD, removed both fans and hooked directly to 12V - NOTHING, neither fan even tried to move. Ordered 4 new 80 mm ball bearing fans on ebay for $23.80 and will mount 2 and carry 2 spares. Got 2 years out of them running 24/7, so it cost $5.95/yr for the fans.

Now to go permanently wire the hose reel and wait on the fans.
Don;t forget the HOSE!

If I drain the tank for 15-30 seconds the drip goes away. So I know that they can't blame me for not draining for the winter. It just sucks to have an issue like that on a new trailer.

Any thoughts on this?
Have you found the leak? Could be just a loose hose clamp on the fill hose.

The dealer fixed it today. The clamp for the fill was not tight from the factory.... Also they made the vent hose so long it had a loop in it so it didn't vent right so they fixed that also.
Surprised the factory misses things like this.

I'm not. Seems like it must be a game and the production line tour groups weren't around, game on!!

What did you do to your camper today?

Well I hope I have nothing else. Only 6 months left on the 1 year warranty.


We'll really test everything on our next trip and throughout the summer.

Well, you've got 6 months to find a huge tool sale or a DECENT stealer. I'm lucky enough to be able to fix (?) anything mine asks for.
