Bought a 2001 R-Vision condor. It's 33 feet and class A. Abq to Vegas just ended. Went really well. Had no problem keeping up with traffic even with some hills. A few drawers kept opening and no aux input for iPod. But other than that was a champ. The wind knocked us around quite a bit. We also put a bike rack on the back where the hitch is and ubfortunately didn't realize it blocked the fuel door. Haha. Rookie mistake. But after many tries and my boyfriend spouting some choice cuss words, we finally were able to get her fueled up. Apparently it's a she. Haha. Anyways thanks for checking in! Tomorrow is Vegas to Reno. Wish us luck!

after thoughts

Well, the trip has come and gone and there were some definite bumps in the road. Unfortunately, the coach batteries were wired wrong (luckily an aeronautical engineer happened to be in line with us on the way into the festival we were going to and switched the lines). however, even after changing them, they would not hold a charge very long, which ended up affecting the ability to start our generator. So basically we had no power during the week long trip. The other negative was our grey water tank apparently began to leak later in the week, so we had to dump it before we wanted to. It began to flood our tub and back up. It was quite a mess. Also, most of the locks dont work on the basement storage doors, so I need to figure out where on earth I can get those locks changed out. The dealer I bought it from also took the little tool that helps pull the awning out, so we had to be really creative. This guys runs great but definitely has some issues we need to deal with. I haven't even begun to get working on it, but over the winter, we will be getting these issues hammered out. If anyone has any ideas or recommendations I am all ears! Thanks again for being so welcoming!!

Erica

Hi Erica,

Grey water backing up in the shower pan is a dead giveaway for a full grey tank. Often the sensors will show your tank as not full, even though it really is. For us, the GW tank fills up really fast and needs constant monitoring.

The battery problems sound like you may have bad batteries. If they were 'hooked up wrong' they certainly weren't charging correctly. I hooked mine up backwards once and one of them began boiling over almost immediately.

Look for low fluid levels in the batteries, and bulging of the cases, both indications of battery problems.
