    Did I mention she had big boobs? When she walked they would go first and she would follow.

    It is cooler than hell, once it gets real close, it goes from jack to jack, with a little nudge until the electronic bubble is in the center of the electronic level

    Yeah that has crossed my mind quite a bit, but luckily there are manual overrides for everything I have found so far

    It has a 50 amp service, and the plug they use is a 50 amp 125/250V, since everything was 120, I checked the voltage on the receptical and just hooked up a wire to that prong, after I was done I just checked to see that I had power inside and thought I was all finished

    The way it needs to be done is run 240 to the 5th wheel and they split it up inside to two 50 amp circuits. It has been too ****ing cold to work on that since the last wave of cold shit has washed through

    So right now only half of the shit works, but at least it is the necessary shit, TV and microwave

    On my old 1974 Winnebago the 6 gallon tanks would switch automatically. There also was a color sensitive tape on the tank to see the level.

    Got all of those, but 20 amps doesn't run too much stuff, been running small space heaters so we don't empty the LP tanks, but where the LP tanks are is a tap on the line to let you hook up to a larger tank so it is easier to do, I am going to buy some fittings and hook it up to the 500 gallon tank we have for the cabana, so we can heat off that. When we camp we always used electric heaters since it didn't cost us anything

    This is our first brand new RV, but it isn't our first rodeo, we have had one off and on since 1992, when we moved on the farm, 45 acres was like camping all the time, but we are ready to move on, too many toys are not getting used and they are starting to deteriorate, need to let somebody new play with them

    What happened was when they filled the new tanks they weren't evacuated and they didn't purge the air out of them so there was a 20% pocket of air, when it went to switch, the furnace kept locking out until it got rid of the air in the second tank, but I didn't figure that out until the next morning when it was 79F in the trailer

    I swore I shut the furnace off but guess I didn't quite:lachen::lachen::lachen:

    Ahh gotcha. All the ones I have worked on / messed with all the extra circuit ran was the bedroom ac. Everything else was on the main circuit. Never saw one with the lp tap on the front like that. You order it that way of just come that way?

    It was that way from the factory, this thing has all the bells and whistles I do believe, very well equipped

    They no longer make this model, not sure why but there are a few things that could have caused it, #1 It is too heavy to pull with a 1/2 #2 It only sleeps 4, which is fine with us, it will only sleep three as long as we have it, Ila, Dexi, and me #3 it is right in the middle of the huge full timers and the week state park models, so it just didn't sell as well as they had thought

    It is a prefect fit for us though we really like it and can't wait to get it out there

    They MSRP on the one we got was $63,000, when they listed it it was $60,995, it is a 2017 model so last summer they lower it to $55,000 then in Dec they dropped it to $39,995, we looked at it and I asked them what their bottom $ was they said make us an offer so i said $35,000 with a slider hitch installed they said $36,680 was their bottom $ I told them to sharpen their pencil as $35,000 was my top $, he went back and they said okay

    So I think we did pretty good on it, like i said it has all the bells and whistles except a genset, but it is wired for one, doubt if we will ever use one, and if we did it would be a remote setup, I don't like the idea of sleeping on top of a gas tank with the egress of the front door or out of a window 12 feet up in the sky
