Smile New 2012 Rockwood 2902ss home at last!

First off, thanks FRF for creating such a great site. We picked up our first camper yesterday and camped overnight at Indian Lake State Park, OH. All was good until the slides wouldn't function. Quick call to the dealer and he informed me where the slide fuses were. Sure enough, they were blown. Dealer actually drove to the campground and gave me a bunch of spare fuses. Was instructed not to hold the switch down, but instead pulse it once the slide motor is under stress. So far, no more blown fuses.

We plan on camping mostly in WV parks, as early as this coming weekend.

Anyone have any must-do mods for the 2902 series? I did find out that my flexible sewer hose won't fit in my bumper...

I love the microwave light.
We have a switch that controls the overhead light by the dinette, right by the main door. It's on the master control board (where the slides, tank indicators, pump switches are). Your three switches would be easier to get to, as we have to climb up the stairs in order to reach our switch.

Is your control panel near the refrigerator? Seems like I remember the panel being back there and was surprised that ours was at the door entrance.

That's what I thought, but the salesman thought I was crazy.
We're going camping this weekend and I'll try and post some pics. I haven't seen anyone post any 2012 Rockwood pics. I'm pretty sure my city water input was relocated away from the water heater too. Good to see FR is improving in some design 'flaws'
