We also started with the 33 but wanted it a bit shorter.
I am new to 5th wheels. As far as your mistakes anything I need to watch for?
Thanks so much
Ask as many questions as you want! Honestly, I have!!!! (leave it alone, Turbs!).
Yes, I secure the island during travel. I turn both recliners to the side, slide the island in between, lock down the wheels, and tie it down with the straps designed to secure the recliners. It fits like a perfect recliner/island sandwich. The recliners are cushioned where they touch the wall and rock back and forth very slightly. I have put some miles on it configured like this and so far so good. I will come up with a better way to secure the island as the factory provided nylon black straps have a tendency to slide off the rounded corners of the solid surface island counter top.
I am new to 5th wheels too. This is my first camper that wasnt' rented or borrowed. I really do like it. We also wanted a bit shorter. The 32 RCTS was perfect, 33CKTS was a bit longer.
As for my mistakes
, verify with a voltmeter what the power being supplied to the receptacle is BEFORE you plug into it.
