Be sure they PROPERLY glue your magnetic switch for the gas solenoid. Mine came fallen off so I had to figure it out and I just taped the magnets together.

I was told "sometimes they fall off". Nice!


Check your water supply at the toilet mine came cross threaded and after 3 days it decided to leak in the middle of the night! Water all over the bathroom into the bedroom.

I always risked it!
I know that it will not boost it. But if it gets to low to the point that it could cause damage it will cut the power off. At least this is my understanding on how the system works.

i think that is true. I have not had time to read about that, the cheap heat or much anything else!

I thought real hard about the cheep heat. I'm only going to be a 3 season full timer. I'm sure i will use heat every blue moon. And I could just use propane. It will heat the coach MUCH faster. In my 24foot class C I only had to run it for 3-4 minutes and the coach was nice and cozy. That is A LOT of propane use to recoup the $600 plus for it. I have read a TON so far and plan to read all of the manuals once I pick up my coach and schedule out a maintenance schedule for all of the components. I really to value your and other members opinions and knowledge a lot things.
Thanks

I think the cheap heat was a $1,500 option. I was in a rig with it at Rolling Retreats in their shop with the shop heat off and it was below 20 outside. Alicia flipped on the Cheap Heat and within minutes the rig was cozy. There are times in the South west that it gets cold at night and hot in the day time. So for me not having to lug the big propane tanks around anymore than I have to along with not having to use space heaters made it all worthwhile. The fireplace is the wife choice but it does work well for when it's chilly. We have finally entered a point in our lives that every decision is not based on money, it's based on do we want it. Thankfully!

Don't get me wrong. I do not mind spending $$ on the right things. Like a new DRV, B&W hitch, Ram 3500 with CTD and the Asian upgrade. But I do try and plan it out. As the less we spend the more we can spend traveling the US. Looking forward to meeting you on our travels.

Finally got the road grime off the rig and actually was able to see how we liked the Cinder Ridge paint colors. We picked the color from pictures and were a bit nervous by doing so. I thought the one color was going to be a bit more Burgundy but it is still a nice color and the Grey actually has a bit of a moss green/grey look and we like that so all in all we are pleased with the color and have had positive comments.

Thanks! It was sure a job to do it correctly by using a water absorber Synthetic Shamos Cloth to eliminate water spots.

I like the look but I am sure I will hate it eventually because it will take so much time to keep it looking nice.

Great looking coach AND truck! A huge congratulations. Being happily married, and wishing to remain so, I will refrain from congratulatory comments regarding your wife.

Has anyone that has a 39TKSB3 added a third MorRyde IS axle or do you already have a third axle? I am at the top end of the axle ratings but a bit below the tire ratings. I am going to be adding the 2" riser to mine and thought it would be the perfect time to add another axle. I am running about 23K RV weight.
