Former owner of a ThorCa product, every time they are mentioned, I throuw up in my mouth a little. You are well past any type of warrenty claim, so no problem there. Good luck and enjoy.
OMG that was F'n funny.
We have a friend that owns a 24' Tahoe. Only problem so far is one of the screws came out on the couch bed and he to do a mod to get it back in and secure. Seem to be well built but are heavy. Taking it to the scales is a good idea before and after you load it.
As far as spending a weekend in it in your driveway, you live in CA, there are thousands of places to go camping for a weekend. Go camping for crying out loud. Whats' the worse that could happen. Oh ya, the list will get bigger. The best experience is experience itself.
We bought ours new. The only design defect was the shower pan. It hair line cracked at the drain and was repaired under warranty. When the trailer was made, no support was under the pan so it was bound to crack. If you stand in the pan it should not flex up/down.
Don't put the water hose(s) in the storage compartment after use. The residual water will leak out on the floor and cause a soft-spot. After filling the tank, put the hose in the truck bed.
Check the tires and pressure before you leave on a trip and at least each day of driving.
If you carry MC's of ATV's, use cardboard or old carpet under the tires. They will leave marks that can't be removed if you dont.
The small black button on your TV antenna connection block is a signal amplifier. It can kill your battery if leave it on for a day.
Try not to run your DSI hot water heater on A/C without water in the tank. You can burn-out the heating element.
The single goose-neck water tap on the kitchen sink has a filter in the cabinet below. You need to make a bypass out of PVC or ? so when you flush the system with bleach it dosen't ruin the filter. I flush then replace the old filter in early spring.
The stove vent fan connection outside of the trailer has two little lock levers that need to be fliped if you use the fan. Otherwise, the smoke detector will drive you crazy. Don't forget to re-secure the vent when you are towing.
The roll-up/down vents on top of the TH will unwind and blow off while towing from vibration. I use micro-bungies to secure the lever to the pastic fachia. I have found painting the vents w/Dupont Fusion plastic paint extends the life of the vent covers. Unpainted, wer'e lucky to get 2 years out of them.
Great info guys! My list of tasks is getting larger, but we are liking forward to building memories in this trailer. Do any of you use a cover for your rv? If so, are they worth it and what do you recommend?

Went by the cat scales today and the numbers were better than I expected they are as follows:
Truck with full fuel, otherwise empty: 7500 lbs
Trailer with full propane, dry tanks: 8760
Tongue weight w distribution bars connected: 1250
So I have 5300lbs max payload left over for the trailer, but only 3300lbs left for the max bumper pull tow rating for the truck. I'm pleases overall with the results and now I feel much better about throwing a few toys in the back! Thanks for the tips guys. We are taking her out for the maiden voyage next week.
