Cool when parked - but check the laws of the states you are driving through before using them on the road...
Catch an LEO in South Carolina on a bad day, and those blue lights will get you a ticket - even if not on and visible... They allow no red (beyond normal taillights) or blue lights on the vehicle at all.
Many restrict at least red and blue when driving as colors often used on emergency vehicles.

Search 'underglow' lights...

Cool lighting, Dino! Are you able to switch them on while parked (camping) for mood lighting? (Great storage shelter, BTW!)

Thanks for the kind words on my RV cover. It will pay for itself in about 3 years...no rent...no wasted gas going to get Windy...she is parked in my driveway...easy to do Mods and preventive maintenance, etc.

29M Maiden Voyage advice...

OK all of you 29Mers, we're taking our new Windsport out this next Monday for a few days to a local campground. I'm going to try to run/go through all the systems while there so I can begin making a fix-it list for the dealership.

Are there inherent issues that I should focus on based upon your expert knowledge? At this point, I know that I'm going to try and tinker with the Rapid Camp configuration. The remote doesn't seem to be doing anything so I'm guessing that it just needs to be configured to the Lippert receiver (under the bed?) I've downloaded the instructions from Lippert, so hopefully that will do the trick.

Even though the campground that we're going to has full hookups, I'm planning on filling the fresh water tank about 2/3rds and adding a 1/4 cup of bleach so that it can slosh around and clean/disinfect on the 20 mile drive out and back. Hoping that it'll be ready to go after that.

Appreciate any advice I can get...

Cheers!

To disinfect its best to add bleach to a gallon of water and pour it into the tank. Then fill tank. Go inside and turn on each facet/shower one at a time hot and cold until you smell the bleach. That way the bleach gets in all the lines and the hot water tank. Let sit for 24 hours, drain at tank and low water point, then refill. You will probably smell the bleach for a couple of days but that's ok.

There is a reset button under the bed for the Rapid Camp. Make sure the remote is charged. You may only need to push the reset button and not need a reconfigure.

Run all your water lines, and from time to time look under the mh to make sure there are no leaks. Don't forget the outside sink and remember it has a mac pump to drain that sink. The switch is under the cabinet. At night turn on all your lights inside and out. Make sure they are all working.

Keep a notebook on the dash or table. Just camp and have fun. When you see/find something that needs fixing write it down so you don't forget.

I've only had very minor things that needed warranty to fix. More adjustments then broke. Water heater electric element did go out so run your water heater in both gas and electric at different times to make sure they both work.

Have fun Jerry

We live in San Bernardino. Heading over to Yucaipa Regional Park. There's an older area with well established trees -- makes for a nice little getaway.

Where 'bouts are you?

BTW, Jerry, thanks for the advice...and I intend to have fun and relax!

If it's got a switch turn it on, if it has a knob twist it, if it has a door open it (no telling what you might find). Enjoy your coach and have FUN!!!

Best wishes for a Great time!

Great idea for the connection to sync with the stairwell light.

I have to share with you -- I was reading some recent posts using my Kindle when my left thumb hit your picture...and then all of a sudden it went to your profile. I didn't know that I could do that! (This would be about the time when my sons would roll their eyes). Anyway, you encouraged me to set up a short profile statement. Thank you!
