New Owner of 165 Sport

Just upgraded from a T@B teardrop to a 165 sport very happy to step up to a real camper. Have lots of newbie questions is this the right place to post? I was mainly interested in seeing how other owners have added tv's and bike racks to their 165's. Or any other cool mods. I'm on cloud nine to step up and have a real kitchen, and a bathroom and shower. Tell me the good And the bad of this model. Thanks

Is it ok to run the A/C hooked up to my house power in the driveway with the proper adapter? What about with a 30 amp extension cord? I'd heard somewhere it wasn't good to run them without being plugged into the proper supply. Just wanted to test some stuff out.

I have run my AC connected to my house with no issue. You just have to make sure that the circuit you are plugged into at the house can handle the load. My AC unit is small so a standard household outlet is just fine. My trailer is wired for 30A so I just put an adapter on and run an outside extension cord.

Congrats! I upgraded from a popup to my hybrid and laaawdy! I love the bathroom, extra storage and all the 'luxury" compared to what I had before. I feel your excitement!
Get a toaster oven at Walmart for $27 that will bake small pizzas and cookies. I store mine beneath a bench seat.

Does your new rig have a rooftop antennae? This was new for me and this weekend I watched my newly hooked-up TV at the campground. Love it - enjoy.

Yes it has the antenna, I just played with it tonight. It raises higher than I thought never dreamed it was so complex. Couldn't tell how to turn it on if it comes on or is powered. I wasn't sure if TV signals were still broadcast this way. I live in Ky maybe not around here but in big cities. I went to my RV dealer today looking at accessories and they had a portable dish or direct satellite dome that was $650. Not sure how that works with a box but it looked cool.
