RE: Grand Design purchase

We just purchased our 2019 Reflection 150 Series 295 RL from a local dealer in NJ. We paid 26% below MSRP and were able to negotiate a good price for the purchase and install of a 5th wheel hitch. The dealer that we bought from has been in business for many years and has a great reputation for customer service. The entire transaction was painless and the dealer was even upfront about a potential problem with the hitch install that turned out to be nothing. I am always looking for good service from the dealer more than the MFG. Our new 5th wheel had a few items that needed attention and I fixed myself. I still believe in GD I just think some of the quality control is lacking from a need to pump out units. We are thrilled with the quality for the price we paid. By local if you can and make sure the dealer has a good reputation for customer service.

RE: Heading to outer banks

There is a rest stop on the North bound side of 13 just before the toll with access from the southbound lanes. Easy in and out, this is where we shut off our propane before entering the CBBT. After we get on 168 we stop at a farm market in Barco NC to pick up fresh produce and such. We start our propane back up here, its about an hour depending on traffic and fridge and freezer are still OK. The place is called Morris Farm Market and they have a huge parking lot with easy in/out access. Have fun in OBX and safe travels.

RE: Patio Mat Anchoring

We camp often in OBX North Carolina and gets pretty windy. I bring empty 5 gallon buckets with lids. After we set out our mats I fill the buckets with water and put the lids on. After they are filled and sealed I place them on the corners of the mats. This has worked well and mats stay put. When we leave I just empty the buckets, stack them inside each other and they are ready for the next trip. They also double as a small table next to our chairs when set up.

RE: More beginner RVing questions

We have used this method successfully for years. 1. If the tanks are not full, fill to about 75%. 2. Empty the black tank first and refill with clean water. 3. Empty the black tank again. 4. Empty the grey tank to flush the sewer hose. 5. Put a small bottle of clothes soap (Dollar store size) in the black tank and put about 5 gallons of water in with the soap. 6. Disconnect the sewer hose from the trailer and rinse with clean water. 7. Leave the grey tank empty. Using the clothes soap and water in the black tank acts like a tank cleaning as you drive. Also this wont leave you with the worry of smelling up the trailer when you use it the next time. The next trip just hook up the sewer as normal and dump when the tanks are full. We do use black tank additive while using the toilet to break down solids and paper. Another thought is to use the campground bathrooms on short trips and not use the trailer toilet. The key with the trailer black tank is use plenty of water while using and flushing the tank while dumping.
