Congrats on your new RV. May you enjoy many years with it.
Don't worry about the problems. The dealer will get them fixed. If not, call the parts Manu and ask for help. I had a problem with my leveling system when I bought my current RV. It wasn't always present, and didn't act up when I brought it back to the dealer. I called the part Manu and described the problem. I asked for help so I could try to fix it. They walked me through a few tests, and we found the problem. Since I didn't want to make another trip to the dealer due to the gas and time they sent me the part, and I replaced it myself. Two years now, and still works fine.
Don't let a few speed bumps ruin your fun time.
I used a SG in my F250 to tow a 34' 5er, and it worked very well. I would call the Manu, tell them what you have, and ask for advice. I called them with questions after I bought my hitch, and they were very helpful.
I have no scientific research to back up what it do, but here it is.
When I fill up the fresh water tank at home I pull out the white hose, and use it to fill up the tank. It takes a couple minutes to get the hoses out and put them back. Since I use the white hoses at the campground, this just makes sense to me.
Like many others I drank out of the garden hoses when I was a kid. I think this might just boil down to personal preference.
I owned both the Lynx (orange) and CW brand (yellow) leveling blocks. They both worked equally well with my TT and 5er. Lynx claims to be able to support the weight of my current RV, but haven't tried it yet.
We are thinking about vacationing in or around the Outer Banks in NC next summer. We stayed at Pirateland in Myrtle Beach a few years ago, and would like to find a similar campground in NC. Traveling with 13 yr old dd, and 2 young labs.
Do you have any suggestions of campgrounds in or near the Outer Banks?
I have RVed in a class c, TT, 5er, and now a class a. Each type of RV has its positive and negatives. Leveling the class a with jacks is easier than putting blocks under the tires on the others. Each takes time to learn what needs to be done.
For me, I park my class a on the side of my house in less than 10 minutes. And I frequently park it myself. With the 5er - it usually took 30 minutes and some shouting between me and my DW.
