Thankyou, for the Birthday wishes.

we are new here to the forums, just been doing alot of research so far. But we picked up our new 2008 Rockwood 8318 on April 16 (My 40th Birthday) who hoo!
:-) Anyway we took it out for 2 nights to give it a test run, we did have a few issues, couldn't figure out why we weren't getting hot water, turned out it was just a hidden bypass turned off. Then our furnace would get up to the set temp. and not come back on again... we turned it off & on a few times and it seemed to work ok, the next night. Also, the kitchen gfi plug for the bedroom constantly had to be reset (without much power even running off it) until it finally wouldn't even reset anymore. But,,, we replaced it with a new gfi switch and it was fine after that.. all in all, we really enjoyed our new Rockwood and hated to have to put it away in storage for a couple of more weeks :-(
We are towing with an avalanche z66 with an equilizer hitch and anti sway bars and break controller plus had a tranny cooler put in... We were a little uneasy towing for the first time when fully loaded, but it seemed to tow great so far. We are used to towing a surveyor which was 2000lbs lighter.

I have read the concertone has issues, so far so good for now!!
