Lesson Learned that we will never forget...

Only once in 52 years of driving did I find myself locked out of the truck. I keep a spare set of keys for the truck AND 5er in the truck. Ford has the keyless entry ~~ problem solved when I took the code out of my wallet.

Yup. We laugh now, but both keyless FOB's were in the truck...one in my wife's purse and the other on the keyset in the ignition....Ooops...LOL!!!
AAA took care of us 2 hours later.

We really like the keyless fobs on our 2016 Grand Cherokee. That said, the key pad on our Ford truck is a safer option. Cannot get locked out.


Love my Wildcat 295RSX!

PSUFan1, Sure hope you don't have any problems storing your TT at the dealer. Things sure seem to disappear while they are there. Someone swapped the microwave out of my brother's TH while it was in for warranty repair. Good luck and happy RVing!

Thanks for the words of caution. Hopefully the 2 months it will be there it will be safe.

Hello PSUFan1. Congratulation on your new purchase. I tried getting the DW to purchase this unit last year, but she couldn't get over the colors, that I actually liked. So when Forest river came out with the same floor plan this year, we ended up signing on a new 2017 Flagstaff 27BHWS last week. Same floor plan, different colors. We have a 2016 F150 EcoBoost, max tow an was wondering how you 2012 did towing the Imagine, since it's right around the same weight as the Flagstaff? I'm well within my limits, just Leary of the length.

Thanks. Well we didn't tow too far, a couple miles down the road and back to the dealer. I thought it felt pretty good. Real test will be in April when we bring it home on the 3+ hour drive.

Congrats on your new trailer as well. We really liked our last flagstaff.

That's a very nice set up. I just bought a 2017 gulf stream conquest 274qb I got it October 15th took it home and stored it. Can't wait to take it out. It's our first camper. I pull it with a 2013 Silverado 1500 z71 5.3l 3.42 gears

Beautiful truck.

When our Ram was new to us, I found we would sometimes accidentally lock the doors when using the armrest as a support when climbing out. Kinda poor placement of the lock button. Always heard the locks, so didn't close the door and get locked out. But saw that day coming. So took steps to be able to get back in when the lockout does occur.

What a great looking floor plan. As we all know, spring can't come soon enough.

Wonder if that Yellow Freight truck drive had permission to be towing his 5th wheel around when not making deliveries?

Maybe he's delivering the trailer and testing it out on the way!
The delivery guys need to sleep somewhere.
