I installed my EMS with the help of you guys on the forum, made it easy because I thought about cutting out the back behind the Circuit panel instead of just removing the Circuit panel, big help. This weekend I just replaced the kitchen faucet with a highrise one, only took 3 trips to finially get the right adapter. Made some additional shelfs for the pantry but now thinking about installing full pull out shelves or drawers like they put in the bottom, would make it a lot easier to get stuff in and out. Magnolia Tom, I am interested in how easy it was to replace the shower faucet, we want to make that change. Did you go with a residential one?

Awesome... Thanks Upstate!

I'm betting a few bucks they changed to 12" frame because the leveling jacks are making the 10" frame flex too much. Potential Schwintek binding fix.
My rig moans and groans like an old man getting out of a waterbed when I press auto level.

I want to know more about this crankless antenna.

Looks like a little batwing and sits at the front roof area right next to the optional 2nd a/c unit. Going to get a few more measurements tomorrow night, will try to snap a few pictures of the upgrades listed. Have my work cut out this weekend. Need to empty our 14 Sprinter 316BIK out and get it off the site so new Jayco can be delivered on 6/11... I was happily surprised that these upgrades came for the new model year, especially since we lost out on a 2016 model last week. Ended up giving us the same price on the new model year! There is also some type of 12V moniter panel mounted near the stairs.. Showed battery voltage etc.. Didn't remember seeing it on the 16 we looked at.

Our 2016 voltage monitor is next to the bathroom door on the side of the bunk!

Just wanted to say HI, UpstateNYer! I'm right across the river from you in DeFreestville.....

Hope you enjoy the 377RLBH. We'll be going out on our first trip with ours (with some friends from Loudonville) on July 4 weekend, to the Wilmington / Lake Placid area.

There was a review thread running on RV.net on the non-crank TV antenna's, and the vas majority that had them reported that they wished that they had the "old" crank-up type! I hope that you have better success than they reported!!!

The space between the bath and the loft bunk is where I mounted the on/off switch for my 2000w inverter and the control panel for my solar converter/charger. Had to disassemble the over toilet storage cabinet, but that gave me access to the wall chase where i could get to the basement with the cables that I needed for each.

Enjoy! Love the Lake Placid area. We went to Mirror Lake in January and had a great time! If you like micro brews be sure to try the Lake Placid Brew Pub.. Also there is a very good BBQ restaurant on the main drag in Mirror Lake called Smoke Signals. Spent many weekends at Wilmington Notch State CG growing up, haven't been there in years. Currently we have a seasonal site on Sacandaga Lake. Hoping to keep this 5er for the long haul to retirement (15 years or so)at which time we may go full time.

And thank you for all your input here! Lots of great info!

Luckily we don't need to use it anyways, we have Time Warner in the campground with internet as well. The people that don't have cable are lucky to get 3 or 4 digital channels with their crank ups to begin with, so if there are reports of people not being happy with the batwing I'm sure reception will be terrible. I'll give it a try though just to see. Love all the mods you have done!
