New Eagle HT 26.5 RKS

Hello all, been trying to say that for a week now but couldn't get it done - hope third time is a charm! I just upgraded from a little 1999 Layton 5th to a new Eagle and the difference is amazing! It's not really much bigger (3-4 feet - I didn't want to buy more then I could handle) but has so many nice things I didn't have before that I pretty much love it. We (me and my two Chessie's - Mocha and Max) had a nice drive down from Montana to Vegas, no problems at all except I didn't much like driving it thru SLC (skinny lanes, semi's, too fast, too much traffic!) and we are happily parked next to my sister's house enjoying the warm LV weather. I've been reading the Jayco forums for a few weeks now and getting lots of good tips and ideas (the mods are awesome - wish I was handier!). I just finished reading all the "bonehead" posts - interesting, hilarious and sometimes terrifying! I have my checklists and have had a few bonehead experiences of my own with the old fifth so hopefully will be able to avoid having any more, though sometimes @#$! just happens, doesn't it? I do have a burning Jayco question but understand I'd better not ask it here ). I'll try to figure out if it's already been asked and answered and, if not, ask it in the right place.
