Thanks everyone, well my timing for this purchase in hindsight maybe poor (thinking if I waited a couple of weeks might have been more deal there)BUT no regrets they rescheduled the IMSA race at Sebring to November so I headed out for a State Park in MO for a week instead (they have since closed all Sp in Missouri) great way to social distance 🤐 the shakedown cruise went well this was a lightly used unit less then 5 k miles most systems worked well. Issues with one of 4 TVs was not connecting screen was cutting off and on .then it took me awhile to figure out the Sky4 WiFi ranger and there is a Sony DVD/ HDMI switcher that took some figuring out. Only problem was a little water in shower coming under the shower door frame. First thought it was plumbing under pan but after checking with shower in use all is dry around pipes found water ďweepingĒ under the door frame a Re-caulking will be done and we shall see.
Fresh water tank city fill is very S-L-O-W donít know if thatís normal the .gravity fill was much quicker. 150 gal capacity!
Again thanks for all the info and warm welcome . Stay safe and healthy everyone.

Hi there. Glad your trip was fairly trouble-free. Just noticed that we are practically neighbors. We're over in greater downtown metropolitan Rockledge!
Hopefully this social distancing thing will be over before too long and we will both be able to get back out there to enjoy the rigs and experiences. BTW welcome to the Class A family.

Thanks neighbor, I’m from the Brevard area have a house over in Cape Canaveral beachside. I spend as much time there as I can but for now home base is in Missouri around St. Louis. Have a Rv pad and power pedestal (50amp) at the MO house.
The coach has been great and mostly trouble free. 2 weird episodes right after I brought it home of “ghost slides” researched on this form and although I have updated firmware on the multiplex that fixed this issue I just reset that system and reinstalled app on IPhone and no issues so far.
I modded the rain gutters as the forward ones discharged the water directly on to the top of sidewall exactly above the forward cab windows because of very short inadequate down spouts really Poor design but easy fix by extending the “downspout” about 1 1/2 “ and now the water falls to ground and not dribbling down the sides risking intrusion above front cab windows .Not liking the factory axxera TVs I will replace each (4) with smart ones as budget allows.
One thing I can’t seem to figure out though is the entrance handle on the exterior front door. The data sheet shows a “lighted” handle -clear tube- but I can’t find a switch or ever seen it working at night mystery so far. I’m not ready to dismantle it yet I’m sure I’m just missing some simple explanation.....
I also added “fatmat” sound insulation under doghouse and cab floor and wheel wells made a huge difference in sound level while driving, and speaking of driving also added SafetySteer damper. This is a big gasser and it drives pretty good. No suckin or blowby from the other big rigs on the road. I was actually surprised by how easy stress free the drive was. I’ll know more when I attempt a 600 mile day.

One good thing about this social distancing is plenty of time to putz around with my new toy.��
