Hi. This is Curtis and Jackie from Arkansas, we recently went from a 5th wheel to an 2010 Itasca Ellipse, and somedays feel a little overwhelmed. Hope to get some help with some questions. I have read some of the forums and there seems to be alot of people to help with issues out there. We got our 2nd home back in June, and have had some problems it seems with each trip we have taken. I will post some questions later, for some much needed advice. Thanks in advance

Big move. And trust me, new rig warranty issues are the norm, not the exception. Maybe when the Japanese start building motor homes. We've got a long laundry list of things on our squak list after spending three weeks in our new rig.

Ask away. Someone here has been there, done that, and will be happy to share the experience.

Happy trails.

Welcome to the forum. Once you get the bugs out and it takes awhile things will continue to pop up. Using the M/H on a regular basis IMO reduces the # of issues. My Mom and Sister live down the road from you in Malvern and I have property down near the Caddo Valley on th Ouachita River.

Curtis and Jackie, Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new purchase.If you are able mechanically to take care of small items, I have found it better to do them yourself and not tie up the MH at a dealers for long periods of time. However if they are large items or covered by warranty, then so be it. Good luck....
