I called my dealer before we left the campground and they took care of ot right away when we got home. The blessings of buying through a small, locally owned family dealership. Our handle for our refrigerator broke off also and the dealer replace that as well.
No mods yet on the trailer. We are thinking of having a receiver hitch welded to the frame in the back so we can install a platform to transport our bikes. We had the dealership install a slide cover and max air vents before we took delivery.
We were actually looking to order the 2021 model, but the 2020 was on their lot and we decided to buy that instead. We are happy so far. Good luck on getting yours!
Very helpful, thank you.
The FW fill on my former two trailers was very slow. The fill hose has to be on low volume to prevent backup through the overflow opening. Camco sells a plastic tube that attaches to the guarden hose that will help filling. The water is likely passing through a 1/2 inch line to the FW tank and it can only handle a low volume flow. It takes forever to fill a 40+ gal. FW tank.
I went from manual crank front/rear stabilzer jacks (using a drill) on one trailer to Lippert PSX1 12V stabilizer jacks option I ordered on our last Rockwood. Love the PSX1s. Not going back to the manual way. Jay Feathers do not come with an option for power stablizers. I will be adding front and rear PSX1s.
We also travel with two bikes so I will be adding a frame mounted 2 inch receiver to the rear of the trailer. I had a similar setup on the Rockwood and it worked great. Over 7K miles with bikes and never an issue with the receiver or bike rack.
We had two slide toppers on our Rockwood and decided not to have one added to the 25RB. Keep an eye on the fabric. We had one of the slide topper fabric's stitching separate about 8 ft. long. It was replaced under warranty. Be sure to sweep any debris off the topper before you retract it. Also use a good UV protectant.
Like you we also purchased from a family owned dealership. Nothing but a very positive sales experience.
Did your 25RB have the Dometic or Norcold 6 cu. ft. gas/elect refrigerator or did it come with the 12V only refrigerator?
