New Hummingbird

Recently purchased new Hummingbird 17RK. Have taken now on two weekend trips. Very happy overall. Had a piece of ceiling molding fall down which I just reattached myself . Only issue we have had is we can't get the fridge to light on propane and there seems to be a lot of air in the line when using the water pump . The layout and design for the size of the trailer is very well engineered, functional, and high quality . Any tips on our two issues is appreciated .

Congrats on the new unit! There is probably air in the propane line for the fridge. If the propane has been turned off for a while I would recommend lighting the stove to bleed the air out of the propane lines. After the stove is functioning like it should, turn it off and then try the refrigerator. The fridge may need to be cycled a couple of times before it lights.

Nice!

We ordered the exact same TT and are currently waiting for it to be built, can't wait until it arrives.

X2 on the air in the propane lines. Get the stove lit first and then try the fridge. ON the water pump, make sure the valve for winterizing is not left open. Could be sucking air through there perhaps???

We just bought a 17RK yesterday. Now you've got me worried about molding!

It was very minor. It was a piece of the ceiling molding that covers the seam joint. I used 3M heavy duty double stick tape and some Gorilla glue and it is solidly in place after multiple trips.

If your fridge still has not lit, run all your propane appliances: water heater, stove, oven and rear BBQ hookup if you have it, for 10-15 minutes and then switch your fridge to propane and check it every 10 minutes (for about a half hour) until it stays running on propane. You'll only have to do this the first time as there is probably still air in the lines.

New camper looks great, happy camping.

Our 17RK comes off the production line on 11/1.

Since it's about 4 weeks past the "worst case" delivery date I believe the first thing I'll do when I go to pick it up is pull on the infamous piece of trim and see if it falls off and then come pick it up the following weekend after they fix it.......what's another week now anyways !
