We signed the paperwork to buy an Open Road 357. It should be ready to pick up next Saturday. We opted for the fireplace and decided to hold off on the a/c for the bedroom until we see how well the 15,000 BTU cools down the RV in our hot Texas summers. So many changes compared to my 29' Wanderer and a few questions.
1. 50 amp power is new to me. Most of the places I go to have 30 amp power. Do you use the 50 amp to 30 amp adapter or do you use the 50 amp cord with the 30 amp plug similar to this one. http://www.campingworld.com/browse/skus/index.cfm?skunu...wListID=32132&src=WL
2. Those of you towing with short bed pickup, do you use or need a sliding hitch?
3. What is the best way to keep things from sliding around in the pass thru storage area?
4. How well does the 15,000 BTU a/c cool in hot climates?
One of the first things I need to do is put in Fantastic Fans in the living area and the bedroom. That Create-a-Breeze in the bedroom just won't do. Has anyone used the SHURflo fans? I noticed they have a model that has a remote control. That would come in handy for the living area.
I can't wait until our first trip. Hopefully that will be the following weekend.
