Took delivery!!!

We took delivery of our new North Point 375BHFS on Tuesday morning.

After spending half of Tuesday and all day Wednesday and most of Thursday loading stuff in it, we are ready to head out on our first trip with it this weekend!

Just a few things I wanted to pass onto the forum members:

I noticed a significant number of staples along the edge of the carpet and linoleum that never really attached themselves to anything. I literally plucked out about six that were just tangled in the fibers of the rug. I then found another ten or so that needed some "persuasion" involving a hammer to sit lower or else my kids may have had some painful encounters.

The main entry door is a BEAR to open and close and the keyless entry SUCKS. It works when it wants to...which is very infrequent to be honest.

Storage on this unit is absolutely amazing. I found places to stick everything. For example, my dometic ice maker fits perfect in the baggage compartment and my spare LP tank that I connect to my Weber fits in the extra spot on the door side which will make using my Weber even more of a breeze. It's under the awning and everything!

Finally, the Ground Control 3.0 system. I have to say, so far I like it. I must also say that most of the places we camp are already fairly level sites. When I pulled it onto the lawn, I parked it on 2x10 boards. I didn't put anything under the levelers and got the "Stroke Limit" error. I retracted everything and put a 6x6x6 block under each of the levelers except the front landing gear. I hit Auto Level again and about three minutes later...we had Success!!! The system did the hard work and I drank a cold one. Can't beat that!

Looking forward to putting it through its paces this weekend. If I come up with anything else of importance, I'll be sure to post it!

The keyless has to be touched to wake it up then enter your numbers. My door was hard to open and I put just a dab of grease on the latch and striker and DW wanted to know why I hadn't done it sooner. Have fun and Good luck with the new unit.

Let me know how it goes. I have since learned Montana is coming out with a floor plan similar to the 377rlbh. Keystone has even sent me photos and floor plans. There is a show model for sale in Myrtle Beach but they plan to start building them Mid September. The wife and I have a lot of decisions to make now. I'm leaning towards Montana with Hydro Level and twin 15k whisper airs. No outside kitchen on Montana and no bunk in bunk room. Also Montana has wet bolt and camera standard along with all solid surfaces everywhere . Only for 5k more. Any previous Montana owners?

I'm glad I don't have the keyless entry. I don't need anything that automated to cause me problems. If I had one on a new rig I would have made removing it for an old fashioned key unit part of the deal.

Just me I guess.

twice now I have slammed the door shut and the lock striker has come out enough to keep the door from opening.
Keys inside

Good thing I remembered the factory code.
I tried setting my own code, but it doesn't seem to work.
I don't like this keyless thing

Take a couple times to get used to operation and you can use a key. I keep my keys in my TV just in case
From my manual
Operation
The entry system incorporates proximity sensing to determine when you want to activate the lock. To operate the lock you first must “wake up” the lock. To “wake
up” the lock you must touch the area next to the buttons. The buttons will illuminate once the Touch Pad is wakened.This indicates that the touch pad is ready for the code to be entered.

Picking ours up first thing in the morning. How did your truck handle the camper?

Our keyless worked twice and then quit. Useless piece of junk. If the auto-level is good, how come you now have to carry around 6x6 wood blocks so that it will work? Does the new 3.0 system not hit the ground (I have the 2.0 system, so I honestly don't know)? Our 2.0 system at least has extendable jacks. MOcamper, I would seriously look at that Montana. My in-laws have one and like it (different model though).

Thankfully we don't have the keyless entry. I have read too much negative stuff about that system. Enjoy your new rig!
