Take some time to put some RainX on that big windshield (will help a lot when driving in the rain).

Nice looking coach. Love using the theater seats vice the sofa or a dinette. Ours has the darker wood cabinets and trim, but still very nice no matter the color.

We just bought a 2014 A.C.E. 29.2. We are so excited to start traveling and seeing the United States. Have lots of questions, so we will need everyone's expert opinion in the future!

Howdy

We just bought our 2012 Raptor 3912 toy hauler unit and went on our first weekend. Never been in an RV before. We have camped over 50 years, but always in a trailer being towed behind the motorcycle. Looking forward to many new and exciting adventures and new friends.

Awesome looking rig. Enjoy the site, learn from others failures and successes. One thing to remember, it's a house on wheels...I don't know of any that don't have some issues. Don't let them get the best of you, be handy and most will be very small tasks. Nay-sayers troll the site but folks on here are very helpful.

I went into this with my eyes wide open. I didn't think for a second that RV manufacturers have any sense of a Six Sigma approach to minimizing defects in their manufacturing processes.

Tonight was our first time out with the RV. We already detected a leak under the kitchen sink where there is an inline coupling I've normally seen on residential faucets. It's where the faucet pulls out to rinse dishes. The coupling relies on two o-rings for a seal. Looks like water is getting past both of those and leaking under the cabinet into the basement below.

I began seeing water dripping down into the water bay when I was down figuring out how to setup the stinky slinky. Observing the position of the leak, it seemed to be about where the kitchen was. I went topside and identified the issue pretty quickly. I decoupled that, wrapped some plumbers tape around it and it stopped the leak. I'm going to get some new o-rings perhaps a tinge bit beefier to ensure a proper seal occurs.

My concern is that on the Miramar 34.4, there is a bundle of electrical wires that runs beneath the sink. These wires lead up to the control panel on the wall. That seems like an obvious design oversight. I don't think it poses any immediate danger, but I certainly don't want to play with fire and have to contend with any long term damage.

Somehow, we've manage to miss that there was no toilet paper holder on the wall in the water closet. Upon closer inspection, it looks like it was removed off of the wall and not reinstalled. I think the best idea would be to insert some plastic anchors where those holes are and attach a new one from Home Depot.

Working with these problems has definitely made this exciting.
