Thanks for the Welcome!
It was great hearing from everyone welcoming us to the Forum.
To Don & Joy:
The model we purchased is the 3400RL-10th Anniversary Limited Edition-(hope that means "Limited" problems)-38ft. We pull it with a 2002 Ford F250-Power Stroke Diesel-7.3 liter Camper Special. In the literature the Camper Special has the same suspension (extra leaf springs) as a Ford F350.
On our first shake down cruise we took it to Echo Bay on Lake Mead. The road has several steep inclines, rough surfaces and we were experiencing 40mph head & cross winds. Took it like a champ! I attribute a lot of the great handling to the MOR/RYDE Pin Box System that came with the rig and the Husky hitch we had installed.
During our three day excursion we had no glitches...all systems were go...well, I still couldn't find the satellites for my Direct TV system...that's nothing new.
I will be keeping an eye on the DVD/CD player I've heard from other posts about it's dubious performance. If we have problems I would be inclined to just chuck it and get a better one from Best Buy.
And I am really happy to hear about the fellow and his stubborn "Panic" light. Now I know what that little light bulb on the remote is all about.
Oh, one other thing. Yes, our rig did come with one 15,000 BTU air conditioner-ducted throughout. Since living in Vegas since 1962 we know the heat index. We had another AC, 13,500 BTU, added to the bed room (nice that all the wiring was already in place) before we even picked up the rig. When we went to Echo Bay the temperature was 104 degrees. That extra AC more than handled the heat load.
To Stiles n Dianna:
"Old Salts?" Sounds like a sailor to me. I served my time in Vietnam as an Airman. Chose the Air Force because I'm a lover...not a fighter.
