New Member and Owner of a Stealth SK2112

After over a year of searching for a toy hauler and being paralyzed by over-analysis, we finally took the plunge and picked up a 2013 Stealth SK2112 last week from our local dealer in Ventura, CA. We had a Class C over 10 years ago that we took as far as Alaska and Nova Scotia but have been tent-camping ever since ... so I have a lot to (re)learn about RV'ing.

We love the SK2112's closed front bedroom floor plan (the kids say Daddy snores ... who me?) and, most importantly, its low tongue weight for a toy hauler. It came from FR with built-in 155W solar, LED interior lighting, and a power awning and I had two Group 27 12V batteries thrown into the deal as well. I am sure there will be much to add to that list with an inverter and/or a small generator near the top of the list.

I'm looking forward to many good times and family memories in the years to come and welcome any advice/suggestions!

We took our new trailer out for a local shakedown trip and had a great time at the Ventura Ranch KOA. With a few exceptions, everything went very well and the family had a great time. We're looking forward to another local trip to the beach this weekend before venturing farther. Our biggest challenges were:

1) As silly as it sounds, our stabilizer jacks took a big part of our set up / take down time. I tried to cycle them up and down prior to the trip in front of our house just to be sure they worked and they were pretty hard to turn. I assumed it was because the screws were painted/slightly rusted and that it would get easier with use. At the campsite, two were nearly impossible to lower and then raise. I hear that folks use a cordless drill to make this faster but I nearly smoked my corded drill and had to resort to a ratchet and 30+ minutes of raising and backing off when I got too much resistance before continuing. I almost feels like I am constantly cutting new threads. Any tips?

2) Also, any tips for getting the ball on the hitch to release from the coupler? I go through raise to unload the bars - remove bars - lower to release coupler routine okay but when I try to raise again to get lift the coupler off the ball, it stays connected and the truck just raises again. I've gotten it free by moving the truck forward/back ever so slightly but that just seems too dangerous. Any tips for this as well?

Thanks in advance for any help!
