I love puzzles, I was an industrial engineer for 13 years and loved figuring out a better way, to me it wasn't work it was fun! Like your idea of vertical placement, would be concerned about the weight, but still a great idea to consider!

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!
You are very welcome and have fun PapaMo!

So Dave (Sundance) went to the FMCA meet in Chandler Az. He attended several classes and he forwarded a lot of info he gather

One of the things was about co/ propane alarms. I never looked for mine in the 29m. So i went into the mh and couldn't find it. Finally i pulled the bed comforter up and found it at the foot of the bed. Im not an expert but i think its safe to say these alarms should not be covered

I went on amazon snd found these. I checked the ul rating and they are for mh without the high mh price

Kidde 21008873-2 KN-COPP-B-LPM Battery-Operated Carbon Monoxide Alarm with Digital Display, 2 Pack https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00I0BSHB0..._zo3EQab86LKAy


I installed one below the tv in the livingroom. Solid wall location. The other one ill place on the bedside night stand. These can be wall mounted or lay on a table. I will also make sure to either lift the comforter up on to tge bed or tuck it under the mattress at night when sleeping

Ive never had a problem with co or propane but these units are a small price to pay for the added safety

Jerry

I am going there 4/7 to pick my 29M, also going to mention you and Dino help me make my decision to fly in from Florida to purchase from them. Staying there at the camp for couple days playing with everything and getting everything fixed before we leave is key.

Congrats again Mannclan on your purchase. Have fun at MHSRV and don't be bashful during the orientation...ask questions if you have them!

I'm excited for you and your new MH ! I almost did the same thing except I would have been flying in from California and making the road trip back. By the time I calculated the cost of the flight and the trip back, we decided to pay a bit more out here -- that and we were fortunate to find one of the 29M's with the maple cabinets...which my wife really wanted! ( They seem to be harder to find)

You're getting a killer deal, and I think it's pretty cool that they have the shuttle service from DFW, along with the on-site campground for checking things out. SuperD is absolutely right -- you can't ask too many questions.

We just had our first night on our maiden voyage (see pic). So far, we love it...and so will you!

Congratulations!

Great advice, especially just setting one on the nightstand.

We really are -- thank you!
I've asked this on another thread (but I should have asked here...) do the CareFree awnings on the 2017 29M retract automatically in windy conditions? I got up at 3 am last night to do so...but it was already in. I honestly thought I left it out. Maybe I'm losing my mind. 😲
