3 ACs is never a problem on 50 amp. 50 amp each leg, not total. 2 ACs on one leg, 1 on the other. Each drawing around 16 amps average. Depends on unit, if it has a hard start capacitor etc. Motorhomes do it all the time. At least most of your 38-40' pushers do.


Our last fifth wheel was 40' (4 slides) with 2 - 15k AC's. It only would maintain temps after several modifications. 36' class A (4 slides) we had had 2 - 15k units and a darker full body paint. It would not keep up at all unless you had shade and cooler temps. That said though, I'd never own another rig that big without 3 ACs. Always better to have too much than just enough. Plan on one going out in the middle of the summer. Always possible, then at least you have 2 backups instead of 1.


On the shower, I've had to remove almost every shower door we've owned due to leaking, including the latest Jay Flight. I pulled the whole thing, then laid a thick bead of silicone under the track, set it, then sealed inner and outer as well. Similar on vertical end pieces. Never had a problem doing it that way.

Agree with the missing caulk. Ours didn'the have any on the bottom of the shower door. Took less than 30 seconds to fix. Noticed it the first night and ran a bead the next morning. Didn'the think much about it.

Congrats on your new rsqs..we are about ready to order ours! Just waiting until the Polar Max two way 18 cu ft fridge will be available...should be on the December line....after reading this thread, I think we will spend the night in the rig at the dealer so we can go over it with a fine tooth comb!

Purchased our 2015 Pinnacle in Langley, BC in April, 2015. Only two minor issues: bedroom slide wiper had a small tear (replaced); bedroom ceiling batten needed to be re-glued. Otherwise, no issues. Lived in the unit fulltime from May through Labor Day. Everything worked as advertised. Very pleased with product quality and performance.

The same issue mentioned above re: the long screws causing the Central Vac to be unusable was also an issue with our North Point 375BHFS.


We also had a large number of staples that were just simply hung up on the fabric of the rug in the living room area. I literally pulled 15 or so out with my fingers before little feet were sliced open by them.


My ceiling fan was missing a screw causing one of the blades to be slightly crooked.


My main entrance/exit lock mechanism needed replacement. It was very difficult to open or close it and our keyless entry worked MAYBE 1 time out of 15 attempts. We actually became locked inside the camper on one trip and needed to use the 1/2 bath door to exit. The dead bolt was not retracting all the way.

Thanks everyone I will add some more stuff now. All seem to be minor but the door lock . Could not imagine if a kitchen fire or something happened fast and u could not open the door. U know how people panic, locked door not good! Called Jayco yesterday and shipping company said mine will be in Tampa today. Cannot wait now!!!

Rock.....haven't heard from my dealer or carefree since I let my dealer know where again they dropped the ball on sending me a shipping label. That's where it sits....they didn't ship the right parts, which left me eating site costs, didn't ship a return label, so I still have the damaged awning,

That is what gets u mad. There is no reason to be treated by a company or dealer like that. Just a phone call to even let u know they are working on it is good

We had a "PINNACLE" washer crap out, actually two. Found out from the company they never did have the first one shipped back to find the actual cause. To quote the Customer service rep "It's not worth the shipping cost, we'll have the dealer just scrap it". Probably the same applies to CAREFREE.


Both units had the tub suspension system fail from bouncing in the back of the FLSA. We now have a SPLENDIDE pair and they said it would take the extra bouncing since they use heavier springs and shocks on the tub to take the abuse.
