Yep, no big deal to get unhooked and off to wherever. Mine is a 2300 so fits about anywhere. The TV antenna is my biggie to remember. I padlock the stuff left behind...sure wouldn't want that surge protector to walk off.

I would think you would unplug Surge Protector and put it away with the cord ??? It would be nice if we felt we could leave chairs - rugs & excreta out while we were gone !!!

At the campgrounds where there are evening events and most everyone goes, the surge protector is padlocked and safe. As long as it's secure, it's just easier to unplug and also leave it when out in the RV. Last year a friend's quick disconnect got stolen while he was gone. It was obvious the site was not vacant. It's sad that the five finger discount still rules in some places.

Welcome to the Forum - if this is your first Forest River unit, you might want to check out the Forest River Owners Group (FROG). It's a free club with tons of events around the country....
We're on our second Sunseeker and love them both...enjoy

Welcome to the club.. Ours is a chevy and we enjoy it. First thought is to get some covers on the vents, and, get a water pressure control and some power protection......

Got the water pressure valve done. Still need to get something for the electrical. What vents are you talking about? I got some soft pillow type things that go in the inside of the vents. They work great for blocking out this AL heat.

light and power

Some thing like this, as the only thing keeping rain out of your coach is the plastic vent lid.

As far as power protect I like progessive industries product, they like them too...

I use the portable 30 amp unit and use an 30 amp extension cord so I keep the unit in the power bay..

now a:
grill
air pump
tools (consider 30 torx and 12 mm socket for genset)
ice maker
folding tables
satt access
water filter (I bypassed the factory one)
hoses (potable water and seperate black flush lines)
stinky slinky holder (fits nicely on chevy)
spare bulbs and drawer latchs (amazon)

Oh got you outside vent protection. And with those I could keep the vent cracked and no rain would get in.

Yup, I put the MaxAirII covers over all my vents for several reasons. Can leave them open in the rain, while driving, and most important to me was the UV protection. Our previous Sunseeker was only 5 years old and while camping on a rainy day (normal for when we camp), found water spot on our bed. The opaque cover succumbed to the UV, dried up & literally crumbled. Of course, this happened on a Sunday and finding a replacement was impossible...thanks for duct tape..

As soon as the rain breaks I would do a oil change on the genset after your monthly exercise. I strongly suggest using xxx syn / non syn oil as it is the only and best choice! let the discussion begin......

In the mean time what everyone want to know is how is it equipped? (pics are always welcome).

take a look at my albums and give us some new mod ideas!

Nice rig toytec, Grats!

Maggiewaggie, about remembering the antenna, read about a guy that kept a bright colored childs sock on the crank while stowed and on the shift lever when he cranked it up. Seemed pretty clever. (forgive the hijack)
