Newbies are us!

We just purchased our first trailer Surveyor Sport 186. This was two weeks ago, so far we have had the GFI outlet replaced and the door lock deadbolt jammed and that was replaced. Towed it home from the dealer to find the drivers side rear wheel hot either the brake is dragging or the bearing is fried. One day the family and I hope to go camping. But we do love our little trailer and I hope that the forum can add to my knowledge of RVing as I have only two weeks experience.

Welcome, Bummer on the wheel thingy but like Greg said better to have it coming home than going camping. Once the few little things are straightened out you'll have a great time.

Taking the trailer in Thursday morning, should be ready by that afternoon. When I had the other two items fixed the dealer first told me that if would be ten to fifteen days before they could look at it, apparently I forgot to buy a 200,000 dollar Bus to get good service. So I had to raise my voice, since being nice didnt work, trailer was done in 3 hours. Hoping to hit the road for a trip in 8 days. Wish me luck...

Here's your luck, and
Good looking rig. Reminds me of the little Fun Finder we had. We still miss that rig.
