Hello! We just got a '16 FR3 30DS and are ready to explore!

Hope everyone is having a good season so far with lots of trips ahead! We're new to owning an RV (parents had one as a kid) but were ready to adventure on our own now with our pup! Maybe we'll run into some of you while were out and about!

Welcome to the forum and the world of RVing. Nice rig. Seeing as you are in AL you might consider coming to the Bama Ganza FROG rally Oct 5-9. Chance to me some of us. Still room I believe. Check out frog rally thread. Later RJD

Welcome from Wisconsin and congrats on your great looking 2016 FR3 30DS. Looks like somebody appreciates the nap factor of the couch .

Not sure what happened with my profile but I'm actually up in NY! Thanks for the idea though, We'll have to look into some meetups closer to us.

Welcome Knoxie89! I'm just down the road from you in Fairport.

In case you're looking for local resources, Perinton RV Rental on 31F does installs, repairs and general maintenance. Hopefully you won't need warranty work, but the owner said sometimes Forest River worked with them. They just installed a battery monitor for me and did a great job.

That's awesome to know! We are actually having some warranty stuff taken care of at Meyers in churchville (where we bought it), sales was great but the 'parts specialist ' was a nightmare to deal with and we needed to talk to shop manager in service to get things back on track. It took us 6 hours to pick it up and get our car ready to tow! But anyway...

Thanks for the tip! I'm looking to get some fans installed and would rather not hand any more money over to Meyers at this point.

Thanks! Did you try the (CHF) Cheap Handling Fix before doing new sway bars?

Ballantyne would be able to do FR warranty work, but I've got no idea if they are any better.
