Mixed feelings looking for ideas
We pulled the trigger, the deal is finalized. Now the wait time on dealer prep and timing for the pickup (and drop off) appointment.
We traded in our 2015 Whitehawk 25BHS, which we have loved dearly. I did a lot of little mods to customize and make things smoother. Several of which I reverted back to manufacturer condition.
We purchased a 2018 Octane 260 SL. I would like to hear from those who have this model and am curious as to what modifications you have made (if any). I know one of the issues we are already noticing is a lack of storage when compared to the Whitehawk. Specifically, the lack of wardrobe (closets). We are able to store out TT at home and thus we leave it loaded and mostly ready to go (save loading the refrigerator and fresh water). One of the first mods I intend on doing is building a wardrobe or two.
So a couple of questions:
Does anyone know what type of power requirements (wattage/thinking generator wise), the microwave/convection oven unit pulls?
We live in Alaska and have never used the Air Conditioner)
Will standard size X-chocks work?
Has anyone had any issue with the black and/or grey tank dumps?
Fuel station: do you leave fuel in it, or drain it?
Any necessary maintenance or other things I should know or do regarding the fuel station?
Anything else we need to pay attention to?
(We do not need any advice on PDI or anything like that, this isn't our first RV and thus not the first time picking one up.)
We are just a humble drinking couple with a hunting and camping problem.
