Grey and Black water storage tank level indicators on the blink also. Even after a good flush of the tank.

Sure is a beautiful toy hauler. That is nutso about the flooring though. I wondered how that pretty stuff would hold up compared to the garage type flooring used in the past.

Well, I found a solution to my concerns at Lowes. They have the connecting pvc matting at lowes that I will now put under my bike before I load it. That could do the trick!

Congratulations! I have one as well. So what truck do you pull it with? I have one too. I have had it out twice and my 2015 Silverado 1500, with 6.2l, 8 spd tranny and max trailer package has no problem getting her down the road and up the hill.

What do you tow it with?

I tow my T30F with a 2014 F350 Diesel. Days with no wind I get 11-11.5 mpg, and on a recent windy trip home ended up getting 8.5-9 mpg based upon the mileage meter.

Truck pulls it fine but it is not fun in high wind. I added a second anti-sway bar to the Husky hitch and it seems to have helped a ton. Also changed the way I load my side by side and now back it in putting more weight over the axles instead of hanging off the back.

Couldn't be happier with the camper itself, very few problems and all minor that I've fixed myself. Only one that still has me stumped is the black tank guage reads 2/3 full so something is caught on the sensor. Next trip I'll do the ice cube trick to see if I can break it loose.

I am looking to buy a 2017 273. You have had yours about a year. What do you think of it? Issues/complaints?

Black tank stuck on 2/3. Do the "ice cube" trick? What is that?
