Hello from Chicago!

Hi There!

Life long camper here, but have always tent-camped, first time pop-up owner as of this weekend.

My girlfriend and I bought a 2016 Rockwood 2280 ESPBH.

I found this forum while looking up a part # for the power winch relay, which currently doesn't lower the pop-up (known issue when we bought it), and have been reading forum posts for the past ~3 hrs since, saying to myself "I think I've found my kind of forum".

The resources here have already been solid gold. As someone who is a habitual manual reader, I was decidedly discontented by how unhelpful and frequently opaque the FR manual was for a first-time owner.

Thanks to all who participate in making this information readily available to newbs like me; I'm sure I'll be back frequently to figure out how to take care of this thing.
