Hello from Colorado

We just joined this forum after purchasing our Rockwood travel trailer. We're out on our first trip and enjoying it.

We've found the forum very helpful already. We had a little issue the first time we used the furnace last night - and the posts we found about that were very helpful. Sounds like we're not the first ones with that experience

Thanks for the helpful forum!

John & Valerie

Welcome to FRF!!!

let me guess, you didn't run the furnace before camping in it, to burn out the factory oils and residues.

Yeah, the dealer gave us a pretty good walk-through but didn't mention this.

Just make sure you open the roof vents and some windows when you fire up the furnace. Would also do the same with the oven. They both stink to high heaven when first fired. Might want to turn the stove vent fan on, just make sure the vent door is unlatched on the outside.

John & Valerie, a big welcome to FRF from Spring, TX. We have CO on our short list of places to visit. Having to use your furnace on the first trip must have been great given the heat we've seen across the nation this year. Hope to run across you two in our future travels.

Travel safe & enjoy your journeys.
