New first time owner

After kicking around the idea of an RV for ten years or so we finally did the deed. Friday we purchased an x23b at the Syracuse show. Hope to pick it up April 1rst. One snag in the process,the model at the show did'nt have an oven. We noticed,but it did'nt register until after the deal was done. When we got home we called the dealer,if they have one in stock they will install it,but if they don't it will be up to 8 weeks for delivery. Not crazy about 8 weeks.
Expect me to be on here asking for help and advice.

Welcome and congratulations on your new Jayco.

Regarding the oven, We had one in our previous camper and used it only about 3 times in 10 years. Most of the time it served as a breadbox!

We don't have one in our current unit but we always bring along our Lodge Dutch Oven.

Congrats on the purchase! We bought our first pop-up, a Jayco Select 12HW in 2006 at that show. We have been back to Seven O's 2 more times for purchases. They will take care of you.

New one is on order. Dealer adding the oven would have been way more expensive.
Order suposedly went in Monday afternoon.
Truck is all in order. What do I NEED to buy? Plastic blocks any better than free wood?and how many? Chocks,Extension cords,Hoses?
Will be making at least one trip to georgia per year,AC is a must. Two Hondas or one Yamaha?
Come on throw stuff at me!

Just get the basics right now, there are hundreds of things to buy but everyone is a little differnt with what they really need/want. I suggest to start...

1) Good Quality Sewer hose -- I have the Rhino Flex Sewer hose kit and it is holding up well.
2) 30A-20A Adapater
3) (2) 25' drinking water hoses
4) Inline water Filter and pressure reducer
5) 90* Elbow for City Water connection -- reduces the pressure on the nylon fitting at the trailer from a hose hanging directly from it.
6) Back tank rinser, if TT isn't coming with one already -- I have the Quicky Flush, others use Tornado...I didn't want the moving parts of the Tornado and its working well
7) 25' garden hose to run tank rinser -- don't use you drinking water hose for this
8) Y adapter to provide 2 water outlets from the camp site hose bib -- one for drinking one for rinser --- I makes on the adapter which side it which but I might be a little crazy about keeping drinking water connections from all others.
9) (2) 10 pks Links Levers
10) (4) Wheel Cholks

**Not required but I also recommend MaxAir Vent Covers. This and the Tank Riser are very easy DIY installations.

That should get you the basics to get the TT setup. Trust me this list will grow after every trip and from reading on this forum.

I agree completely with clubhouse's list. The dealer will give you some stuff, but it's not going to be very high quality. A good sewer hose is a must. Some places require you to keep your hose off the ground, and it's nice to keep it pitched toward the sewer connection anyway, so look into a "slunky" or similar. You'll be absolutely amazed at all the things you'll "need" after a few trips! Plastic lava lamp? How did we ever live without it?!

Oh, and on generator choice there are thousands of post on that. From a quality/dB perspective either are great optons. If AC is the critical feature for you, Dual honda's will certainly run a 13.5 AC, seems that there are mixed reports if a single Yamaha 2400 will always run the AC.

Went and picked it up today. PDI went well, about two hours. trip home was no picnic. Rain, sleet, spitting snow.78 mile trip, she ain't clean no more. Wind is about 40 mph, was blowing us around a bit.
Truck did well,mileage dropped from 18 to a bit better than 9 instantly. Engine temp ran about 200, and happily the transmission stayed right around 134,went to 140 in the stop and go, but dropped on the highway again.

Congrats! Did you go through Seven O's? We bought our 23B there last summer. Great experience. We've only had ours out a couple of times very briefly as we bought at the very end of August. Looking forward to this summer though! And I hear you - today is a crap day in CNY!

Congrats on the new TT, sounds like an interesting trip home. My camper is still covered at my FIL's waiting for the warm up to dewinterize. Welcome to JOF from chilly Rochester, NY.

Congrats on the new purchase! How exciting. And it that Syracuse...as in New York? If so, congrats on Syracuse U making the Elite 8!

Our first 2 trailers did not have an oven so it was never missed, and we went about 20 years without one. Our last 2 trailers have had an oven and my DW does use it. She spoils me with breakfast muffins and baked cookies. YUM!
So, we would miss having an oven. But until we had one, we did not miss it...does that make any sense??

I love my camper oven - it's great for cinnamon rolls for breakfast and for baking cookies or a loaf of bread (the pillsbury varieties of both) on a rainy afternoon. But then, I love to bake in general, so baking while I'm camping (and not having to worry about burning my cornbread over the campfire) is pretty awesome.
