We just bought our 2004 Granite Ridge in April. We wanted a couch but this one came with a booth, so we immediately took the table down and turned one bench against the wall creating a L-shaped couch. Really opens up the area. It was an easy switch. We have relocated the table length wise in front of the L-shaped couch. We can take it down or leave it up. We also made shorter legs so we can still use it as a bed. So far it's working great. I had to patch the carpet by using the piece under the booth and putting it in the area where the booth had been. It looks fine, but I knew there was a seam so I have put a throw rug on it, which I would have done anyway since it will get a lot of foot traffic. We had a 22' Rialta before so this feels very large and luxurious. Took it out overnight to make sure everything works. Can't wait to go on a longer adventure. I would like to know what people are doing about stabilizers in the rear to keep it from rocking? Ours does not have stabilizers...yet.

Granite Riidge

[ATTACH][/ATTACH]Congrats on your purchase. We bought our 2004 Granite Ridge last fall. Used it once last fall. Did OK on winterizing. No leaks. Used it once this springThe water filter is behind the drawer above the hot water heater. You have to pull the drawer out to get to it.
I'm not using that filter. There is a by-pass pipe that screws into it. I will use one on the City water hose when I fill or use straight city hook-up
I can't find stabilizers either . I guess some models didn't come with them. I fund a wrench. But it was for lowering the Spare tire.
Does your ice maker work? Mine don't. Doesn't seem to get any water into it.

We started towing our 2000 Mazda Protege with a tow dolly. I found the dolly to be a PIA and crawling around under a car to adjust straps and chains not something I wanted to do regularly. Found a 2003 Mazda pickup with manual transmission, but after a trip to Alaska decided needed bigger passenger capacity and I was tired of a manual transmission. Got a 2005 Honda CRV last year and it has been great - I even prefer it to my wife's 2012 Subaru Forester.

Towing 4 down is the way to go, found my towing set up on Craigslist for $250 and added $90 for local mechanic to install and good to go for a lot less than the $1550 Camping World wants for the same setup.

Good luck!

Hi all,
Tom in North Alabama here, just joined the forum.
Bought our '05 Granite Ridge with only 15k miles about a year ago.
Now have about 20kmiles, hope to do much better the next few years.No major problems yet other than trying to get the water pump to create pressure when the system is in 'normal' trying to pump out of the fresh water tanks.

we have one too

We purchased our Granite Ridge brand new in 2006. Love it. Have been looking at new ones but haven't seen one that even comes close in design and features.

Granite Ridge

Purchased our 2006 Granite Ridge 3100SS in January. I think we have figured out most of the features, switches, etc. Little confused about the automatic vent in the bedroom. Tried scissor jacks to stabilize but didn't notice much difference.

We sold everything, bought the MH and are full timing in it. Are there any others full timing in their Granite Ridge?
