It's so hard not to count the hours :-)

I got the 14-50 plug installed and tested and I have my initial batch of RV stuff (e.g. jack pads) on the way from Amazon. Now all I need to do is figure out how to get the town tree trimmed up enough so I can fit under it

Cinergi - Tomorrow is the BIG day for your New Aire pick up. Will be anxious to hear how well the PDI goes and your observations of how it drives going home.

Hope you were able to get the town to trim the tree that is in your way!

Good luck and look forward to more pictures and your thoughts.

Got the plates and registration in hand. Picking up at 10am eastern. Still hasnít hit me yet. It will when this huge thing is sitting in my driveway :-)
Tree got trimmed this afternoon. Talk about cutting it close. No pun intended.
I doubt Iíll get many pics or videos during pick up (donít want to slow that process down). But I have the next 4 days off and Iíll provide plenty of pics and raw video.
Gonna see if I can swing RV driving school this weekend and make that a trip (2 days). If not, I may hit a campground near some friends. Or camp in the driveway :-)

Briefly (as I'm drinking from the firehose and don't want to stop!) - I picked it up and she's home today. 3 hour trip. Drove quite well through the Berkshires. My previous thoughts about the unit feeling 'fat' -- it's not as bad as I thought *and* I'm finding that the transmission isn't downshifting when it could -- so I've manually dropped into 4th and was having no problem maintaining 60 MPH or better on some of the steeper stuff (no grade marks on the road -- but if someone can find the grade of route 90 east approaching the taconic parkway exit, that would be useful into!)
I've got 3 busted items: drivers side charging pad (dealer already knew, part is on order), 1/2 the sleep # bed doesn't stay inflated (appears to be a bad chamber), and Rozie (silverleaf) isn't functioning at all.
I'll agree that the wiring in here is poor. I'll have photos of that soon.
I'm also finding things like screws just laying around behind panels and whatnot - including electrical panels. So while the materials used are nice, I'm starting to question attention to finer details ...
a LOT more to come -- just wanted to note that the delivery happened and all's well :smile:

Thumbs up

Nicely done Ben. Keep them going.

Thanks.

PS. Very diassappointing at poor cable management and cheap duct tape holding it in place. They need your services to show what a clean install looks like with wire wraps and cable ties.

Great job on the videos. Thank you. The cabinets look great--not too dark at all. It's a beautiful coach. Thank you for pointing out the wiring issues. They really need to work that out. Pretty little kitty! Have fun.

BTW I'm adding videos to my channel over time (2 since the post) so make sure you subscribe to see new ones. I don't plan on posting a message here every time there's a new video. I'm adding one about My Rozie now and recently uploaded one about the sanicon. Enjoy!

Looks like it gets up to 7.5%. I use ridewithgps.com to check grade %%'s. It's for bike routes, but it works just fine for highway routes too.
