Brought her home today!


Can't wait to try her out! Moved up from a 287bhsw. I'm new to 50 amp service with this one. I have all the cheaters and adapters (I think). Anything I should know or tips on all this power?

Looks great, congratulations! Sorry, can't help with the power question as I'm new to 50A this year too

Just try to keep your neighbors happy by using inverter generators. No real difference using 50 amp service other than not having to worry about not having enough power to run 2 ACs.

Very nice RV. I think the JayFlights are a great buy!

P.S. Looks like your WDH is set up right and is sized properly. Nice level ride height.

Thanks Fairenatic! Don't use generators so I'm good there. Burton Campers has great service. I think they did a good job of setting up my hitch. It was loaded when they set it up too, so no worries about changes! Have to give them props with so many negative posts about other dealers' service departments. Highly recommend them. The main reason for my question is most places I camp don't have 50 amp service yet.

Looks great...we took our 28BHBE out for the 1st time last week and enjoyed it.

I have a 50 amp to 30 Amp Dogbone, I plug mine it at the house with it, can run everything except both AC's at the same time.

Can you tell me if your L Brackets on the Frame are mounted with the 2 middle holes where there is 2 holes above and below the bolts or are they dropped down so there is 1 hole above and 3 holes below.

Thanks...

Thanks... Camper looks nice... Enjoy!

I did want to say that 50 Amp cord is a bear compared to a 30 Amp cord, I am thinking (hoping) all the necessary wiring in the campers is upsized as well so even when running on 30 Amp it reduces any chance of overloading. I am using this dogbone...

Camco 50 to 30

I did use the 50 Amp plug when we camped last weekend but have had no issue plugged into the 30 Amp I installed at our house, we spent a full night in it with the AC running and no issues. I also had my old X19H (30 Amp Camper) plugged into it for 3 yrs with no issues.
