1st Trailer - 2014 Wildwood X-lite 231RBXL

We started out tenting, than went to a pop-up for 10 years, went back to tenting and now we have just purchased our 1st trailer. A 2014 Wildwood X-lite 231RBXL.

As newbies to camper camping, we would appreciate any suggestions for upgrading the mechanicals in the trailer, anything we should watch out for or any handy tips you would be willing to share. We are not new to camping but are new to camping in a camper.

At the risk of sounding incredibly dumb, I read something about a Horbst probe and I have no idea what that is or what it does. I guess I'm looking for information of that nature.

We appreciate any information anyone is willing to share regarding this specific trailer.

Thank you !!!

Hello there! Congratulations on your purchase

This link explains what Horbst probes are and how they work:
Horst Miracle Probes for Wastewater Tanks in Recreational Vehicles RVs

I have bought them but have not yet installed them, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

For many campers, they are confident they clean their black and grey tanks properly and could care less what the sensors indicate. I however, want the sensors to read as 'empty' when the tanks are empty so I will definitely be installing this 'upgrade'

Congrats on your new rig.. and thanks for the question because I've had this problem for years and just "lived with it".
