On a ford, they're around $20. No idea how much for a Chevy

377 RLBH initial impressions

Easy as pie. Plug in and done. Less than 30 seconds. Look for something like this

That's from etrailer and costs about 6 bucks

Yep. Chevy parts are ALWAYS cheaper than Ford.

(humor people, just in case it gets lost in translation)

Looks easy, where does it plug in?

In all honesty, I'd go to the dealer and tell them that you THOUGHT your truck was supposed to be charging the trailer battery. You recently discovered it is not, and that through research you had learned that it had to be requested?!?!?! You purchased a truck for $xx,xxx and needed to request something plugged in?

See if they will just do it for you.

377 RLBH initial impressions

A few more observations after a night camping on our maiden voyage.

The fridge door bangs up against the bunk door if you don't hold onto it. Think we will put some type of stopper on the door frame of the bunk room

The outdoor cooktop needed to have both propane tanks open before it would light. Seems odd, we weren't using any other propane but we probably won't use that cooktop that often.

I do not like the latch for the outside kitchen. Kinda a PITA to latch and unlatch, especially if the basement door is opened

The charging station outlets are great! Plenty of outlets to charge 3 phones and 2 iPads.

The convection micro is nice...we made muffins and it worked well

The built in vacuum worked well. My wife couldn't stop using it. Going to need more bags since we only got 2

There's not a light in the front compartment. We do not have the genny prep. I'm going to add a light in there

I wish the island light and the accent north point light were on separate switches

The carpet on the dining slide gets bunch up touching the island when the slide is in.

Kinda annoying that the dining light needs to be turned on at the light instead of by a wall switch.

The bunk house sofa bed needs to be converted back to a sofa if you want to open the cabinet. We have 2 kids sleeping on it and if one wakes up first and wants clothes to get dressed, he has to wait for the other to get out of bed.

I personally dislike the TP holder mounted on the door but there's not really a better place for it.

All in all, we absolutely love this trailer and are looking forward to many years of memories with it.

Well I pulled the little outside fridge. I found the control knob. On the back of the unit. Totally useless in that location. No way to access it without removing the fridge.
