Recent 36FBTS owners

Any recent 36FBTS owners want to check-in and give some updates on their new Our delivery date got pushed back a week, so while we're waiting I thought I would see how you guys are liking yours. I was also wondering if there may be any common issues to watch for upon taking delivery.

Thanks

Love our new 36 FBTS! We found cracks at each hinge in center island by the curved cabinet. Hard to see but look for that. Second lever for black water is under slide. Had to hunt for it. You will love that front bath. It's really a great layout!

correction: The hidden lever is for the 2nd gray water tank, not black.

Is anyone pulling a 36FBTS with a SRW F350?? I love the floor plan but don't want to trade trucks for a DRW.

We've been in our new FBTS for a month now and love it. Most problems are operator error. Took about 3 weeks to find "hidden" grey tank valve. We pull ours with 2014 F350 SRW, Diesel with no problems. The biggest pain is the TV reception, hidden antenna switch, satellite dish decision and hookup etc. My experience however tells me that any new home has a learning curve to overcome.

TexasRT - sorry to hear about your delay on delivery. Just got back from another weekend camping. I can't say there isn't much we don't like about it. Everything so far has met our expectations and really haven't been any issues. I will say you need to check the kitchen sink faucet before you connect to water. Every time after we travel the faucet works itself to the on position. First time I filled my fresh water tank i didn't check inside and when I started filling the tank the water started coming out of the kitchen faucet onto the floor.

Smile New Prospect for 36 FBTS

Glad to read postings on this model. We are debating about this vice Montana. Glad to hear so many happy campers. Keep us up to date when you get delivery and how you like it. I am looking at this November to get one.

We found that during travel the kitchen faucet turns itself on and we get water on counter and floor. A simple rubber band around the faucet fixed the problem. It's just one more thing we will do each time.
