Thank you! I do have soen questions..
During your ownership of the trailer, was there any issue you found was persistent?

Also, I keep having issues with my battery dying on me, I've changed it twice in the last year. Did you ever have an issue with the inverter? I've read in some blogs that in some trailers a not so top of the line inversores for the trailer was used? For now I've just disconnected the battery terminal while I'm not using it. I had tried leaving it connected and then plugging it in every so often but it looks like all that accomplished was to ruin the better.

Last, did you ever dry camp where you had to use a generator?
We want to start exploring more camp sites without having to be in a full hookup park and haven't decided if I would be ok with just a 2000 watt inverter or if I should get the 3000 watt

Thanks again for any suggestions ...

We never had and persistent issues. The battery issue could be due to the carbon monoxide detector. If you are not plugged in or your battery disconnected the the LP detector can drain the battery quickly.

I do have two suggestions. Pick up a clear sewer connector with a flush adaptor. With that model trailer it works really well. If you forget to unlatch the bed before putting it up you will pull the screws out of the couch as the are not very long. Also there is a thread on here or Facebook about someone removing the bottom part of the couch to make the under couch area more accessible. I think he unscrewed it and replaced the with the same latches that hold your cabinet doors closed. We did not do that, bug when I saw it I had an 'aha' moment

We never boon docked or know about that. Enjoy that camper. We loved ours and it was so easy to pull and maneuver
