Maiden voyage with our 2015 x17z

So my wife, 21m daughter, and i took our maiden voyage last week for a 3 night trip to Carlsbad state beach. We had a blast with our new trailer We found out how quickly we can go through water lol. We were a lil worried how my daughter would sleep in her own queen size bed coming from her crib at home, but she did great! i think we'll have to invest in the 12v fan/light that clips on the pop-out bars for some white noise. Anyone have those? id like to hear some reviews on them. cooking inside was great, but we set off the smoke alarm a couple of times, no burning just super sensitive, but i guess thats a good thing. Found that you could feel a bit of movement throughout the trailer so im thinking of getting some universal rv stabalizers Valterra Universal RV Stabilizer has anyone used those before or have someting the used to help stabalize the trailer. my wife, who is 29 weeks pregnant felt a lil uncomfortable on the thin mattress so we'll probably need to purchase a mattress topper. we had a honda 2000 generator which worked great for our needs basically just to use the microwave and to charge battery and phones. that generator was great, super quiet! cant belive some of the generators people use out there some were like standing next to a construction site! over all we were very pleased with our new home away from home

Just a reminder, on our hybrid there were little plastic locking tabs that keep the flap on the exhaust fan closed. Look up into the outside vent and you'll see them. If not flipped open, your exhaust fan will not work! I speak from experience

Nice rig. We took our X23B hybrid to South Carlsbad last year on our first dry camping voyage. We too learned the hard way that water doesn't last too long when you are off the grid. We bought a 5 gallon water container and refill when the H2O tank gets low. We are dry camping at San Elijo State Beach this weekend which isn't too far from SC.
