Congrats on your new coach. Sounds like mostly minor easy to fix items.

Heading up to Ho Hum campground for four nights to get a feel of the FW and look around some. I have always like the area around Mexico Beach and St Joe park. Ho Hum is about an hr from there. I am so impressed with the FBTS so far. Ya some stuff needs fixing but nothing major. Going to add Firestone air bags this week. Truck rode fine did drop several inches but that is good for dropping front of FW. Want them just in case on bad roads to take any harshness out if needed.

Rock,
We hang around Destin and Ft Walton Beach.

I agree with the way the FBTS pulls. Just the few miles around home here, I have been impressed. But, we have an itinerary set for April and we will find out then how the '14 GMC Denali 3500 SRW and the 5er act together then.

Guys an ur better halfes
We will enjoy. Spent today loading her up and opening all the basement panels. If u take off the back basement wall I can get to the gray tank valve that is leaking. But the dealer can do that. Gonna call Jayco and ask for all the wiring and pluming diagrams they have. There are several vales behind the basement wall in the plumbing lines that I have no idea what they do if u move Em. I want to know everything about this bug beast before I go dry camping off line for two months. I can fix everything I found but I will let the dealer do that. This is one awesome BEAST

Junk Rainier Tires

Just got hit by the Rainier tire gremlin. Was checking tires prior to departure on a trip last week and noticed a bulge in the sidewall of one tire. I took the tire to Discount Tire and was told it had a broken belt. I had the spare mounted on the wheel and purchased a new spare tire. I guess I should be grateful I noticed it the day before leaving.

Be careful, my friends, be very careful!!! We had the same experience with our Raniers 2 weeks after taking delivery of our rig in May. We did the same, had the spare put on the rig in place of the bad tire. About 4 hours later and about 200 miles, we had a major blowout with one of the other Rainiers. Luckily, we were not far from a Discount Tire and were able to obtain a new tire for the blown out tire, got it changed, and limped into the Discount Tire where we promptly replaced all tires. Subsequently, we also purchased a Tire Monitoring system which we feel is a godsend. We have the peace of mind knowing what our tire pressures and temps are on the tires at all times. This doesn't mean we won't ever have a blow out again, but at least we will have some forewarning and be able to take quick action, hopefully preventing the massive camper damage we experienced before. Good luck!
