Ok folks, my wife and I are commissioning our new 34 IK this weekend. I found the black tank storage tube. I was lining the slide mechanism and walla there it was big a day. Lol

I have found two problems no three not found earlier. Stove is having a hard time lighting. Well itís just not lighting.

And most importantly, along the front cap seam on the curved section the chalk was nil. Glad my coach is stored ina warehouse or this would have been a big deal. Everyone check you seams!

Other than that everything is functioning.

Screw fell out of the lock mechanism today. No biggie, I didnít count that one. Also found a screw on the black tank storage tube that needed tightened.

We are at Mammoth cave in Ky this week. Nice little mom and pop rv place, Singing Hills.

Used our gas oven for the first time last night. Oven was tough to lite. First I turned on a burner to make sure gas was ok. Then you turn the dial to pilot. Push the dial in. Hit the burnrer light switch.

Fought me. The DW had to show me I did something wrong! Duh!

I like Mammoth Cave, we went there and stayed at the KOA 2 years ago. We found a nice local winery down there and of course thereís part of the bourbon trail.

The best cave tour we took was down the stainless steel staircase. Itís as crazy as I would ever get. The big cave tour is also good if you havenít done it. But itís a great place to camp!

The black tank storage tube is behind the rear axle in front of the spare tire. I was cleaning and lubing the hydraulic jacks and I found it.

It held my main hose but it closes tightly and I found a loose screw on it that needed tightening.

New 34IK

Ok hereís my recap and a few questions Iíve posed to the Owners Forum.

This weekend was part one of our commissioning trip for our 2019 34IK. I was really pleased.

Oven was hard to start, after 2 days messing with it, it finally lit the pilot.

Level up system was great. I used it with the Anderson blocks on the jacks around the wheels. Good results and the Coach was very solid.

Everything else functioned well. Heat Pump was not working below 30 degrees or so.

I inspected the roof and was very impressed with the seal job. Much better than my old Sunseeker.

I cleaned and lubed the slide mechanisms.

i know I looked before but the chaulking in the front cap from the curve down was severely deficient. I went to a Montana RV dealer close and got some tan chaulking. Looked perfect.

I organized all the compartments.
Slept like a rock.

Problem: The back passenger side jack will not retract all the way. Itís about two inches down. I cycled the leveling system twice, cleaned and lined all of them and still not change.Any ideas?

Loved the In Command system. Nice awning and security lights.

It looks light I might be able to do a 90 degree turn with the slider in the normal position. If that true, dang it. Look like it misses the cab by somewhere between one inch and two.

The bad. I had this mistake going into the storage area. Do you guys think I should replace the drivers side tires?
See pics I was going slow but didnít notice and dropped the tires over a big curve.
Thanks for any help!

If going slow the tires are likely ok.

My fiver has the G rated tires though.

Added some good items yesterday.

Bluetooth battery monitor. Transmits to the cellphone rv battery voltage with running out of battery warnings. About $40

Mopeka lp tank level monitors. About $70.

Had the Jensen stereo with the sound bar. Sounded ok. Added a Yamaha subwoofer. About $160. Really improved the sound.

Adding handles to the sliding mirrors in the bedroom. $14

Heavier shocks to the bed lift. Ours came with the standard king shocks. Too weak for the fancy foam king mattress with a topper. $60.

Enjoying coffe from the Kerrigan coffee maker. Green Mountain Dark Magic.

Love it!! Can you send me the model on that Bluetooth battery monitor?

Where did you put the subwoofer and how did you hook it up?

Our new 34IK (2020 model per paperwork) arrived at the dealer yesterday. I went to the dealership to give it a quick look. The full walk through inspection is planned for April 1st for which the dealer said to plan on several hours. One thing I noticed was the toilet. It appears to be installed at a slight angle. Iím thinking itís the flange installed incorrectly. I plan to add this to the list of issues to resolve. What does everyone think? Does this seem like a major fix or would you bother with this fix?Attachment 1

The battery monitor is called battery monitor II.

Bought at Amazon, about $40. Easily installed in the fuse panel.

The subwoofer is installed in my cabinet next to the stereo. I am sure it is different than yours. I bought the Yamaha that would barely fit on the shelve. About 18” x 20”x6” high.

Just the right amount in the fiver. Trying not to annoy the neighbors. Much.

Ran the included cord between the speaker and radio.

Can you show a pic of the closet handles. I didn't think I could add them because of door interface.
