2016 23RB initial report

Howdy,
DW and I took the plunge and bought a 23RB. Previously we had owned 2 Jayco pop ups and a 19' Funfinder TT.

After two weekend trips we noted the following:

1. Overall quality was very good
2. Crestview RV (Buda, Texas) treated us fairly
3. Power jack has internal breaker and external fuse (hard to see the fuse around mdnight)
4. Gas mileage dropped to 9-10 mpg towing with '03 4x4 F150 5.4 liter, Norm is 15. The Funfinder was 1000 pounds lighter, 14 mpg
5. Pulls straight with WDH.
6. Some frame attaching nuts loose or missing after 2 trips
7. Greywater tank full by day two. Guess we really like the shower?
8. Mattress topper was an improvement.
9. Speakers are subpar
10. Sound system remote has a 3' range, really?

Overall were happy but there's still stuff to do to make it all right.

We just purchased a 2016 24RBS. We pretty much noticed all the thing you mentioned. I have not added a mattress topper yet. I was impressed with the overall quality. Our first time out we dry camped in Shenandoah National Park. It was chilly and rainy but we were itching to go out so we went anyways. the furnaced drained the battery quick ( about a day and a half) but we were using the water pump and a few lights also. We are taking her up to PA next week for the second trip. Ram 1500 CC 4x4 Hemi also getting 9.5 to 10.5 mpg hand calculated. Good luck with your new camper and have fun.

Keep me in the loop please��
We just bought a 2016 RB23 and its in winter storage so we haven't turned a tire yet
We bought it before we bought a 2015 Tundra to pull it
So your experience is in valuable to me as a first timer
I will be crawling all over the trailer tightening things up

Soltice, I'll be happy to update this thread.

We added a RVQ style grill but, I think a Weber Q2000 would do the job better and heat more evenly. The next mod will be a Maxxair vent cover.

Think we're going camping for Halloween weekend.
