Just remember that there is a free ice machine on the outside of the pool area for your beer cooler!

Have a great time!

I am not out of the woods yet, but I will just provide an update as I know there are inquiring minds like mind that like to know

I'll start by saying that I know RV dealer service is slow. I accept it isnt the same as dropping your 2016 Honda off and getting it back that same day with work done. So far I have nothing but great things to say about RV Giant in Murietta. Each time I talk to those guys over there they really seem like they truly WANT to get my coach fixed. I know they got their hands full with too many jobs, but they are making every effort possible to them to try to help. I am told that they called over to FR today and that they are picking up my part today (they go get parts from Rialto every Wed) and we are thinking/hoping that it is only that little controller box and I should be able to get it on my way up the I-15 on Friday.

It isn't fixed yet, so like I said, we arent out of the woods yet, but I have to give them props for really trying to help. I also know that I may be getting a little bit of assistance because 1. I call many times a day. 2. I call FR and talk to Robbie there at least once a day. 3. my fix should be super fast 4. I had less than 1-day using the brand new 2016 trailer 5. it all could have been avoided by someone looking it before selling it to me.

I'll update more when I know more.

Good to hear about positive progress.

We would all much rather see you with your unit enjoying fistfuls of adult beverages this weekend!

Update:
One motor was bad. They said the wires were ripped right at the motor, not enough length to even try to strip n solder again. So thanks to both Giant RV and FR service worked together and got me a new motor the next day. Friday giant went to install and found more wires ripped within. So this weekend wasn't meant to be....
I commend them both on doing all they could do to help us out though. It almost worked.

I had one bad experience with Giant RV in Colton. All said and done the problem was my service writer. I had them change my service writer and all experiences since have been great.

Hey AMG, well I'm glad that everything is working out even if you weren't able to pick up the unit and enjoy it this weekend. Glad Giant is working so great with you as well. Hope you get her back soon! Keep us posted!

I picked up the TH yesterday morning from Giant RV.

I really have nothing but great things to say about the guys there. I know they have too much work, too little tech's, too little room, all of that. But I really feel they were doing all they can do to help me.

So they had to replace the control box, 1 motor, the wiring from the motor to the control box, and then the rubber outside sealing.

I am going to go to Lame Hemet for Labor Day weekend. It was a last minute (this weekend) booking, because I'll be flying solo, so I figure my bro and I will go out there and give this another try... I hope for the best.

Great to hear everything is back up and running for ya AMG! I too am booked up for labor day (back to our full hookup site thank God) and looking forward to hearing how your trip goes. We just did a quick 2.5 day trip dry camping and I'm having some troubles filling our fresh water tank(s). City water connection works great but I'm getting SO much back pressure from the gravity feed. Still loving our trailer though.

Thanks! yeah I am doing full hookup again for Labor Day as I need more time to be able to test this out and look for other issues before desert season. I actually haven't tried filling the fresh water tanks yet (we have the 2, 160G total) but I know there is 1/3 in there. Not sure if how it fills is all to 1 tank, then overflow to the other, or if basically my 1/3 is total across the two tanks, etc... I will prob crawl under and try to understand how they plump that.

I almost didn't admit to this, but I think there is a *chance* the reason that the Hot & Cold fittings were slightly dripping behind the outdoor shower hookup could have been because the place we were at had really high water pressure. I didn't have the pressure regulator that I own hooked up (50-60psi output). It also could have just been that the fittings were lose (which they were, and after I tightened, the dripping stopped!). However, if the pressure was like 80psi, maybe they wouldnt have dripped. Bottom line, I will use that regulator going forward. I also got a filter that fits outside too.
I actually never needed to use the regulator on our old TT, as we never went to a place with hookups. I just relied on the pump

:EDIT:
I added airbags to my F-250 so that even with the hitch weight, I can maintain the ride height and even though I have the WDH, i don't get squat in the rear.
