Brought home a 2019 Epro 19FD!

Itís lightly used but it should be fun! Upgraded solar panels from 100W to 450W which will be great as we prefer to go boondocking/off grid. Upgrade in size from our Geopro RK12. I appreciate all of the information on this forum. This is my first camper with septic, water tanks etc. any pointers would be greatly appreciated! We are by Helena MT.

Looks like a great camp site...

I suggest that you consider the roof seal that I describe here...

Welcome to the forum! I have the same trailer

It appears you're lifted which is a must with this trailer as the plumbing sits very low.

That's a great camper. You might want to consider putting chocks behind those wheels or chaining it to the tree so that it doesn't take off down the slope.

Congratulations on your purchase and welcome to the forum.

I have a recently purchased 2020 Geo Pro G19FD. What are you doing with/to the entry door steps in the pic?


Thanks.

Both wheels are chocked.

The steps came unattached, they are just leaning up against the side until I reinstall them

Matt, I think I read several weeks ago on one of these forums that someone recommended adding some additional "strength" to the bottom side of the flooring to screw or bolt into. A couple of the screws in my base-plate for the steps seemed to be sort of pulled out by stress of some type. I have not made any changes to mine yet but I'm keeping an eye on them.


You may want to check your mounting area pretty closely as you put everything together.

That was me. I have a couple screws loose on account of nothing to bite into under floor. I still haven't added additional material below floor. Also, I heard some people had problems with awning and lighting wiring that may pass near door sill area, so be careful! I don't get why steps were not installed at factory, this is weird.
