I just picked up my 315 last Saturday only one battery, I'm going to be adding my array of 4-6v 225 AH deep cycle batteries in the spring.
I'll let you know how long it runs

You mean the sales people were blowing smoke? I can only imagine they put the smallest and cheapest battery in there which will also not help...

For the record, we still do not have a trailer or idea if we will be getting one. They claimed they had one and when they would not send the build sheet last week it turned out there was no trailer.. If supposedly was to leave Goshen on Thursday, showed up today for the hitch and the service guy, Jim who is awesome!, did not even know if or when it will arrive. He also had no idea it was getting the second ac or slide toppers because the sales people never told him. We've gotten more information about our "new trailer" from Jim and he actually returns calls unlike the rest of the bunch. He gets and a+ while the rest.. Well not so much.

Wow. That stinks.
I only dealt with the one salesman Patrick, he seemed to be a straight shooter, and we had nary a hitch (pun intended).
Except the lack of fireplace which is in the works

Maybe get an upgraded and/or second battery as part of the deal. A group 31 would only cost the dealer about $25/35 over what the standard group 24 would cost them, plus about $10 for the box. The single group 31 would get you almost double the amps of the group 24. Jay

Yeah especially since the last two days were spent unloading the grey wolf just so we might need to load it all back up..

Started emptying it out...got about halfway done. Need to go back and finish emptying it, and scrubbing it down so I'm not scrambling when the new one shows up.

My radio just wouldn’t get any stations in. Hmmm....I wonder why. Found the antenna coiled next to the radio. Also, my cable/antenna signal to the main TV in the rear of the TT as well as satellite signal missing. After ripping things apart, I found a number of connectors loose. The satellite cable had a bad connector at the outside connections. Now no more sticking sat cable through gaps in the slide.

I received a call from the dealer about the warranty repairs being authorized. They are making a bunch of repairs in addition to replacing the ignition pcb for the water heater, dinette window shade, kitchen drawer handle, ceiling a/c cover and the entire entry door and frame. They are also authorized the remove the blockage in the gray tank. I will be luck to get the trailer back before December.

Sunday night football

Washed it, spray waxed it, loaded it with beer, eggs, bacon, steak, beer, game tickets and took it to the game. And bought some more beer and bacon on the way to the game. Is this normal?

We took our Shockwave to the dealer last Wed for the last of the warranty fixes.
That included fixing a hole I made with our RZR's door, wife says I should listen to her, that was till she backed into my pickup.
Wager's in Salem, Oregon have been the best to deal with, a big shout out to Ron the service manager and his son Charro. We have had super great service from the two of them. The only time we had to leave it over night was when the tech from Lippert flew out from Indiana to repair the crooked mounting of the axles.

Today I flushed out the black water tank and drained all tanks. Blew out the water lines. This isn't really a winter put away thing, just a little prep as I don't know just when we will be using it again. Wife says we ARE going camping in the next two months to complete her plan to camp every month this year, we'll make it!
Debating whether to pump antifreeze through the lines yet, think I'll just wait and watch the weather forecast.
