We took it from Phoenix to San Diego. It went great. Just a three day jaunt in a city incase something went wrong. Now to drive it from Phoenix back to Montana. We're off starting Saturday. It's been fun and we are really happy with it.

MPG will greatly decrease once you pass 60MPH. I bought plastic slide in units for the pantry next to the refrigerator. They are so deep you'll loose the item in the back of them.

RetiredAF,
We had the same issue with our 4 door refrigerator when running on propane (not sure what source your talking about). You might check the manual gas shutoff valve if you haven't already. It's on the back of the refrigerator just below the gas flow solenoid. I'll try posting a picture (1st time). I hope this helps. BTW, thanks for your service.

We've had our 3050S for two seasons now. We live in Ohio and can't "winter" south yet so she's in storage..can't wait for spring to get her on the road again. We love everything about this model, hope you will too. Maybe catch you at a rally sometime...

Congratulations on your new 3050S. We bought a Forester 3051S (same floor plan) in May and really love it. The full wall slide gives us a lot of room in the living room/kitchen area. It's just my wife , 3 cats and me so it works great. We got the 4 door refrigerator and it has done a great job...no problem with the freezer temp...it keeps ice cream and everything else frozen solid. One major thing we added when we got back to Oregon from picking up our unit in Ohio was a steering stabilizer. After fighting the rough midwest freeways, we find it makes quite a difference in handling. Also, be sure to get your front-end aligned after about 2500-3000 miles.
Good luck and good travels....Enjoy!

We love our 3050 but have had issues with the slide not staying in on the highway. Have had to use a block of wood to keep it in. Two dealers cannot find anything wrong with it. We have also had issues with the full body paint peeling on the top, rear corners. Dealer has repainted twice and soon to be a third time.

We got a Roadmaster RSSC. Bought it from HitchSource.com with free shipping. Very satisfied with it. You will also need to order a bracket kit with it.

Yep, got the Roadmaster RSSC on my 3010DS. Not sure where I got it from, but ordered the bracket at the same time. Seems to me it came from one of Amazon's suppliers that didn't charge tax for MD.

Ronismith,

This has been discussed in this forum. You'll probably get a better response if you start a new thread.

New Sunseeker for me

Ron, the short answer giving that your converter/charger is working correctly is. No. I leave my 2014 Sunseeker plugged in all the time.
As stated, search the forum as chargers, batteries and battery life has been discussed.

Try to see if you have the WFCO or Progressive converter. Progressive will not over charge your batteries

I now have a progressive charger, but even with the WIFCO, I left the RV plugged in all of the time without issue.
