RV Newbie

Just back from a 1250 mile jaunt from Dallas to Tampa, (with a stop in New Orleans) in our slightly pre-owned 2014 Precept 31UL. Being brand new to the rv lifestyle, community, driving, and ownership, hubby and I were pleasantly surprised not to run into too many issues we could not solve. Absolutely loved the ride, minus the rattling from bad highway roads, and the torrential wind and rain from the weekend storms. The lack of control in the high wind was a little scary, but hoping the addition of a sway bar will help rectify. Our biggest problem was the water heater--we blew that within 24 hours. Any advise on repair and the purchase/use of a water regulator would be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to many more adventures. We plan to use it primarily for tailgating, so at least the cold shower will not damper the entertainment!

Welcome;


If you can provide a bit more info on the problem with the water heater you might get some opinions

Congratulations on the new unit and welcome to the forum.

Before adding a sway bar, have your tires and tire pressures checked! Most tire stores will do this for you. Even if you a add sway bar, you might still have handling issues if your tire pressures are too low. Higher tire pressures will make a harsher ride (sorry ) but safety trumps smooth ride.
