Maybe I'm behind the times but what's a "meat +3"?

Also, enjoy the new toy!

Meat +3

It is a home cooking type fast food. Here in WestGA we have three or four of these joints in our town, they offer a limited breakfast and then lunch. Most every town around here has atleast one. During lunch it is packed with both white and blue collar. If a truck has a lift or service body on it then it is in the lot for lunch. They have a menu but most everyone picks a meat (fried or bbq chick, meatloaf, hambuger steak) and three vegs(from fried green toms, lumpy mashed potatoes, fried okra, to home made cream corn). Think barn raising buffet, a rural thing. Sweet tea and banana pudding hits the table when you sit down. Your pick of home made corn bread or pan bread. McDs next door is for the college kids.

Did i mentioned that I like Georgia?

We call those places "Meat & two Veggies" My FAV places to eat!

I always thought I"d like to open one of those places where you have daily specials and maybe WiFi and Coffee - I'd call it

'Meat2Veg'

Get it? You can have meat and 2 veggies, or bring your laptop and 'meet to veg' for a while. Anyway enjoy the new RV!

We have several "southern cooking" or "southern buffet" style places. I've never heard them called "Meat + 3". I'll have to ask the wifey since she's a true southener and I'm a fake southerner (transplanted yankee)

Went today for pick up. Rained like crazy, no leaks.. (If you watched the NASCAR talga AL rain delay that is where we were).

Positive issues:
- Suprise! It has awning LEDs, looks great.
- Water filter location, in external bay under bed.
- We got the chevy 4500, seats are cloth and nicely made.
- I guess I am comparing RV to camping, but the build quality is sufficent to very good. The cabinets are square, plumb, and attractive; not house quality but then no crown molding or tile either.

Negative issues:
- Did not install fantastic fan at factory, dealer to fix (to be fair it was a late add to the build).
- Sat dish only drives front tv, I'll figure out and fix.
- Prep PDI guy was good, nice, and un aware of sunseeker coaches. This board leveled the playing feild.
- No table came with the 23, heard talk on the board but not listed on manf web site.
- Only a single set of keys issued?
-Single air fitting for both rear shock bags?

Overall I give both the manf and the dealer (Dandy RV - AL) both a 96%. We were the first Sunseeker they have sold. All of the negatives will pass over time.

Bottom line a very good experience, and I must tell you I am a harsh grader.

As a side note the service box location worked out great, I can pull up to the garage door leaving a 3foot walk space and the cord lays down non stressed.

Regarding the air bags: there should be a value on each side. Look in the storage compartments in front of rear axle. There should be one up on the side of the compartment covered with a plastic cap.

Now how get the video and tv sound to work...

DVD in, select media screen comes up, select disc, get the park brake screen, can hear the DVD music, touch the screen and it returns to the select media screen. wonder if the parking brake connection is hooked up. Ideas?

Also trying to get the tv sound out of the 5.1, sure that this has been covered here I will search for it. Got Direct tv working with the king dome, sweet.
Rerouted the coax from the rear tv to the Windgard to the back of the Direct receiver in the cabinet over the door. Now satt on both tvs and local over the air on the front.

Sure glad they did not install the soap dish and the toothbrush holder, we have other plans.

If I may suggest, put that coax back to the Winegard control. There is a "Cable" input to the Winegard. Put an AB switch with A side to the "Cable In", B side to the Sat receiver output, and AB-output to the Winegard cable-in. That way you will have all of OTA, Sat, and Cable on both TVs (with appropriate settings on Winegard Booster switch and AB switch).

Thanks bclemens, I will give it a shot. Any thoughts about clearing the warning screen on the DVD? Wonder if a connection or two came undone when the Mag unit was slide in during assembly... It is like the emerg brake signal is not reaching the Mag unit, no DVD controls appear.
