New Owner: 2013 Flagstaff 831RESS

just a quick introduction...

We just purchased this unit yesterday and got it home. We're interested in any tips/advice other owners may have for us as this is our first unit. We'll be pulling it to race tracks with my motorcycles in the bed of our truck (Dodge 3500 dually, quad cab, diesel) Unit pulls very well with our truck. We're awaiting delivery of a new Adco cover, tire covers, hoses (fill and drain), and an assortment of other goodies we thought we needed and wanted. We also have 30 amp cables, and a 15 amp converter, along with a 30 amp surge protector, and a couple of spare tires and jack. And yes, we do have wheel chocks, levelers, and plenty of spare fuses

Any other recommendations on 'must have' items? Any other 831RESS owners with feedback on their units?

So far we're pretty impressed with this. It looks *almost* brand new and we bought a 3 year extended warranty in addition to Good Sam roadside assistance.

Thanks for any/all feedback

We have the same exact's our third travel trailer...only extra s we bought was the max air covers for the roof vents... if the roof vent covers aren't protected they'll get weather beaten and a eventually the wind will blow them off ...been there done that...we also bought protective screens for the furnace exhaust and etc.. biggest tip I can give you is make sure all cupboard doors are closed when opening and closing slides..ripped one of mine off..when I put an item in the cupboard above the sink I bumped the door open on the other now I always check when opening or closing slides..other than that we do love the much more toom on extended stays..we used the fireplace alot in the spring snd fall.. saved on sure you'll enjoy it as much as we fo

yeah, we were impressed with how much the fireplace heated the unit last night while were were checking it out after getting home. I'll be sure to check all cabinet doors twice (and everything else) before pulling the slides back in. Thanks for the tip!
