2005 Granite Ridge 3100SS

We purchased a Granite Ridge 3100SS this November. Looking forward to hearing from the other Granite Ridge owners. Located in Texas.

We have a 2004 Granite Ridge 3100SS that we just purchased. Just "up the way from" you. We finished upgrading a few of the electronics - flash programmed the satellite (KVH tracvision) from DirectTV to DISH. Pulled out the old cd player AV system and installed a new blueray player, Switched from Sirus to XM radio.
Next project is replacing all 4 ball joints with shocks as the lowers are bad. Seems the stock ones wear out rather quickly. At least on mine with only 25,000 miles they are worn out. Just need a little of this snow to melt and the temps to come back to "normal" and I'll pull the front in into my shop and get the work done. I built the shop when we had the house built ... but did not have in mind the height of a RV!! oops...

Granite Ridge

I'm about to be a Granite Ridge owner! I put the down payment on it today and will pick it up on Tuesday. I'm very excited to be here, as this is my very first RV, and I have heard nothing but good things about them. Mine is a 2002 3100SS with 20K miles and practically everything in it looks like it has never been used. I'm in Alabama and anticipate a lot of beach trips this year. Maybe a trip to the mountains of Tennessee for the fall to watch the leaves change. We still have quite a ways to go until retirement, so any really long trips are out of the question until we can get more time away from work. Until then, we can look forward to some long weekends and some regular weekends at the lakes and parks close to home.

Proud owner of a 2004 Granite Ridge 3100ss. Just bought it Aug 2012. I was surprised everything works! I bought it as is and was hoping the seller was honest. He was.
Well only thing that needs replacing now is the
deep cycle battery.
I just sold a 1997 Jayco RBS 277. It was going to need a deep cycle battery too.

Hey Dave and Deb. You will love your Granite Ridge. We live in Southern California/Western LA County. We bought our GR new in 2004 and upgraded the battery system in 2009. Originally, we had one 12 volt house battery. We switched to two 6 volt Lifeline (GPL4C) Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) batteries and couldn't be happier. Since originally there was only one tray for the 12 volt house battery, we had to not only use that location but also had to use part of the outside storage bay to the right of the battery 's location to put the 2nd battery. We had Bill of Bill's RV do the work back when Bill still owned the business. He has subsequently retired. Happy travels to the two of you. Charlene

Thanks for your reply and the advice about the two 6v battery system. I'm sure we are going to enjoy our unit. We had a 97 5th wheel Jayco RBS 277.
But thought a motor home will work better for us now. Wife has health issues which makes motor home a better idea. I love the V10. It has plenty of power.
What average mileage do you get.?

Dave and Deb. We got about 8 while towing the Tacoma with camper shell. Just switched to a Honda CRV (less weight and smaller). Haven't towed yet so hopefully we will get a bit better mileage. We pretty much try to stay between 55 & 60 (California law says 55 is the limit when towing in our great state) so I am sure that helps as well. Will be takng it to Montana this summer so that should be a good mileage test.

I'm looking at a little Saturn (sp) 5 speed stick to pull behind. The price is right. Just got to check it out better. Put a hitch on it and the way I go.
Got magnetic lights to put on it. Plug them into the MH light plug. I hope I don't have to hook up some kind of brake system. The little Saturn shouldn't weigh any more than a 17ft. I/O Boat.
I figured between 8-10 not towing. When I cruise at 70 I know she gulps the fuel. Still learning.
Got about 10 pulling a Jayco RBS 277 5th Wheel with my 2002 Chevy Duramax. That bad devil has the power.
After using the MH once last fall. I'm sure this summer it will be real enjoyable.
