We then saw her for the first time in a private show room where we got a chance to look her over at our leisure before Steve the service manager gave us a pretty good walk through with opportunities over the next 3 days to go over anything we need more instruction on. After that came the paper work, sitting down with Kim whom walked us through the process with ease. We continued pouring over our new purchase and of course then came the punch list of minor things thus far, some of which was taken care of as we spoke. Other things to include the fabricating of a new plate under the drivers side seat to moving it forward to accommodate my short frame making my sitting behind the wheel more comfortable will be taken care of tomorrow. Get that from a dealer. The day came to a close with us sitting in front of the fireplace basking in the glow.....

Hi Will and Jane,

Absolutely thrilled for you. Nate is the guy I've dealt with on the phone as well! LOL Will, I'm 5' 6" in height. Am I likely to need that plate you were talking about?

Really wish we could go to Hershey to meet up. Sounds like it would be a lot of fun.

CONGRATS again!!! Keep the pics coming!

Jim

No Jim, you won't need the plate modified......well I take that back.....from this point on, the original weld for the seat plate is being moved 5 inches up.....unless your exceptional tall, and I am 5'5" by the way.....you should be able to power the seat back far enough but moving it forward all the way, I was still about a foot from where I needed to be to drive the coach comfortably.

CONGRATS on your new coach! This may be the first time we've heard of someone with a coach providing "too much" legroom Happy to know Nexus was able to accommodate your needs without you having to start a fuss.


I'm thinking there are going to be a lot of buyers liking their business model. Please keep us advised of your ongoing experiences with the new baby.

Will,
Unless I have the math wrong the new weld location would still leave you 7 inches too far back. No? I like a close driving position. Am I misunderstanding something?

So, how was the first night (and I'never been able to use these words before...) sleeping in your Bentley?? HaHa.

Jim

.....you got your math right so perhaps you might want to do what I did....as you saw, I was in here when they were working on much of my punch list so it was a back and forth conversation on most things on what was wrong....yes the original weld will now be 5 inches forward but in my case, they had me sit in it and they put it where I needed it to be and my seat goes back from there and perhaps a couple inches closer if I need it...total travel is about a foot.

The first night I have to tell you that I did not sleep to well.....still excited about getting in it, the enormity of the purchase not to include the size of this beast as compared to our Georgetown....not so much in feet and inches but that it's just big as my wife says. Couple that with having just sold our beautiful home, we will be having an estate sale in about 3 weeks after we get back to California as if then we will be living in it full time. From there I am going to retire next December so all that is weighing on me and start our travels.....having said that, the second night.....this is Thursday morning....I slept like a baby!!! No noises in the coach, creaking etc....it is solid on its jacks....the back two are positioned across the same but about 3 feet back from each other so unlike my previous...it does not move....it's not perfect by any means and I am no expert but I think it's a good buy.

.....so far my biggest complaint that cannot be fixed right now as far as their design engineers are concerned and they have been trying to come up with something is that when it's not perfectly level ie, not on its jacks or level ground or with a bias to the front being higher than the back...the condensation drip loop....AC/rain is right over the entry way door, there is one all 4 sides of course. Level it always drips to the rear of the coach. Their solution is to be level all the time or put the door awning out and at least it does not drip on you.....I hate that but I can live with it...

......if anyone is interested I could write down some things I find interesting.....for example the 2000 watt pure sine wave inverter feeds both the TV's I put in my options and I (have the 2, 100 watt solar panel option) the living room and bedroom...and the receptacles on the sides of the bed....two of them. The residential 4 door refrigerator runs off propane.....using DC of course for the ignighter and the display lights. Boondicking depending on how much you watch TV or you don't spend the time ironing your cloths you should be able to be off shore power or not have to use your generator for quite some time. I have not seen the specs on the TV's yet to give an exact wattage draw. Also the drivers dash display gives your a very extensive check list that you can toggle through which I am thinking is a Freightlinner staple.

PS......I was checking the inverter capabilities while my wife was taking a shower......to put it mildly, the on demand water heater does not work on the inverter....need I say more!

No you don't need to say more. I can only imagine the joy with which the diminishing supply of hot water was greeted!! As to a fix, obviously a larger inverter and possibly more battery? (Remember I do NOT have an RV so I'm only guessing.)

Finally, yes, the more you can document the better about the new home. Like, for example the AC condensate drip would be really irritating and I'm sure that Nexus will come up with a fix.

I have to say I'm really surprised about the whole seating issue. Sure, at 5' 6" most men are taller but the standard arrangement means that a LOT of women will not be able to drive with any degree of comfort and safety.

Thanks for catching that.
