This afternoon, I picked up my new Puma 253-FBS I only towed it about 20 miles back home from the dealer so I don't have a real feel for it yet. Backing it down my 220' narrow, curving, driveway wasn't fun. I've never driven a trailer before.
So far, we've found a few small issues.
I lifted up the bed and the struts locked. I absolutely can not find any way to release them. I had to unscrew them in order to let the bed down.
The manual talks about a manual crank in case the slide won't move. It has a drawing of the crank, but where is it? Speaking of where, is there a gauge for propane level? If so, where is it?
The dead bolt on the door works from inside, but will not work with the key. I am hoping that it might be easier to fix myself than to go back to the dealer. Unless somebody knows the solution, I'll investigate tomorrow.
We got the rear stabilizer jacks, but have not seen a need to put them down. Even without them and with only basic wheel chocks, we don't notice any movement as we walk around.
I'v got it parked in the driveway and we plan to move in for a few days to do a thorough check. At this point, we are pretty happy with it.
