When I looked at my unit this weekend I was happy the 12 cubic Norcold did not have ice maker which is an option. When I hook up to city water I carry a timer valve that I put in line. I set it for 20 min of water run time. Had several small water leaks in my TT after long rough road tows. I did the same on my boat so while gone for the day it would not sink if I blew a hose. Figure on trailer if something broke loose it would only leak so much before shutting off usuall just turn it off in evenings when there

Finally getting back to the "Land Yacht" this week after a two week lull. Looking forward to being there and enjoying it again. Have a couple of small projects to do. The thermostat in the bedroom reads off a few degrees for the room temp so my dealer sent me a replacement and I will get that changed out. Possible rain off and on until Saturday morning, so after that she gets a bath.

YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK THIS - I noticed the last time we were there that the crimped connections for all the leads in the battery compartment seemed loose. The wires are crimped in the eyelets but if I move the wires they actually move some in the crimp. Loose connections on any wiring are not good, so I will re-crimp all the connections. No biggy. Just thought I would throw that out there...

Everyone have fun at whatever you're doing and be safe...

That's a shame but noticing and correcting it may save you some hard to find problems in the future!

Very true, a little checking and maintenance goes a long way in the RV world.

Update on our FBTS. Replaced the Denver torturemess with a Simmons Beautyrest. We both had a goodnights sleep. Ice maker is working now. Tried all suggestions and it still was not working. So, I turned it off at the controls in the fridge, the light showing the glass with what I assumed was ice went out. An hour or so later we sat down to watch the news, and we hear the ice maker dump. I told DW, I thought I turned it off. Got up and checked and what I assume is the off mode was still off. It continued to make ice during the evening and night. LOL. Going home for the day and Bible Study tonight, will come back to the 5'ver tonight. Have grandparent duty the next 2 days. Thanks for all the help and suggestions. Will work on the satellite connect tomorrow.

We ordered our 2015 Pinnacle 36FBTS in November of 2014 and took delivery April 17, 2015. Have a Seasonal site that we love and took a trip to the Adirondacks in August with our children and GradChildren. All went very well, could run the refrigerator about 11 hours before running the generator to re charge the batteries. Have had a few minor fix-its, but nothing major. We love the layout and have had many comments from fellow campers.

Thanks for checking in PJ2, and glad to hear you're having a good experience with and enjoying the FBTS. It is an awesome coach for sure.
Any questions or tips for others are welcome.

Enjoy

We camped at Limekiln Lake State Park. It is one of our favorites and I have camped there since the opening of the Park in 1966. Limekiln lake is beautiful! Swimming and Kayaking is great relaxation.

Update, got the satellite hooked up. Did the same thing I had done previously, however, discovered I had a bad coax cable. Granddaughter was here last night. She wanted to watch a DVD in the bedroom. TV in bedroom is a Saikyo w/DVD. Never could figure it out. Guess that will be the project for today.
