Smile New Surveyor 305...

Hi... thanks for all the great information provided by this forum day after day. We picked up our new 2012 Surveyor SV-305 on Wednesday and camped our first night on the way home. We are thrilled with our new trailer and have yet to find any major issues. I hope you can all bear with me as I continue to ask stupid questions...

Thanks!

Congrats on your new camper! Your photo is not coming through. Ask away if you have any questions - this is how many of us are learning.

Sorry about the photo... I hope this one works. I've scoured this camper and can find absolutely nothing wrong with it. :-) Except for three stripped screws.

Second picture looks great! I notice all that pretty green grass - bet it's not in California.

Where were the stripped screws?

Sorry I didn't respond sooner, DonfromCanada. The stripped screws were found on the heat/cool vents in the ceiling. I went around and tightened/checked every single screw I could find, and that's how I found 3 that just spun. A little dap of Gorilla Glue seemed to solve the minor issue.

We have had a couple issues... the tongue jack crapped out on us. The gears stripped and we had to have it replaced. The stabilizer jack switches stick, one has apparently burned up as it does nothing now. And one of the "plastic cable mounts," for lack of a better term, which hold the electric cables tight up under one of the slides has broken. So, while traveling, the cable hangs down a few inches under the frame.

But... really no major issues in our 4 months of off-and-on camping.
