New SV291 Surveyor Owner

Got it Wednesday. First TT owned. Graduated from a tent to a popup and now this. Drove directly from dealership in Macon Ga onto I-75 and was not prepared for the 18 wheeler sideways suck. After that I settled down and drove the 120 miles home to Leesburg Ga. It sure is nice to have indoor plumbing, the wife loves it. Parked it in the driveway to set it up and play with it and all of a sudden the neighjbors from three houses came over. Took me half an hour to clean the drool that dripped from their mouths after they left. Got the floor all wet. Next purchase will be an electric tongue jack. Don't know which kind to buy. GVWR is 4800K.

Welcome and Congrats!
We have a SV291 also and LOVE it. I also put a Barker electric jack on it this past March and have been very pleased with it. Money well spent. I bought the 3000# High Power model and not the VIP model. I like having the limit switch so I don't "overrun" the gears. And it was so easy to install, only about 15 minutes. Check out the Mods forum here for a link to the Barker website and you can order from the factory,that's what I did and I had it in 3 days.
Again, Welcome to the "Club".
