New(to us) 2007 sea breeze 1350.

Hi everyone! We just picked up this coach with 9000 miles, and 250 gen hours. We have never owned a coach before, but have been "trailer trash " for years!!!
Anyway I'm sure we will have lots of questions in the coming weeks, but if anyone has any secrets you would like to share, I can keep a secret.

Welcome to the forum..We bought a 2006 TropiCal in Jan, so I understand the need for answers to questions. In just 4 months i have learned a ton about MH's..tires, air bags, batteries...oh the batteries. I just replaced 2 starter batteries (or chassis batteries as they are refered to). And tow bars for a TOAD.. this topic could take a whole page. But fun stuff...we really enjoy our rig now and look forward to FTimg in 20 months (retire date).

2007 Sea Breeze

I see you are going to Anzo Borrego, so conclude you live in the Southern California area. There is a National RV Owners club called The Dolphins covering CA, AZ, NV & UT. Check it out at The Dolphins.

We hold 4 to 6 rallies a year all over California, Nevada & Arizona. We have even gone to Idaho for a rally. This year we were in Quartzsite in January, Pismo Beach in April, going to El Cajon for Memorial Day, Paso Robles in August, 29 Palms in September and Chula Vista in October.

Great group of folks and LOTS of knowledge about National RV coaches!

Come join us!

Happy Trails!

Are you staying at "The Springs"? That was our first trip also. You will LOVE it there. Golf, Tennis, Pool, Jaguzzi's, Massage. And perfect for 4X4 offloading. Have a safe trip.

The Dolphins

Ibethejury and Xjaywalker,

Send me a PM and I will give you more info on The Dolphins. Just came back from our 6th Memorial Day Rally to El Cajon. had a great time! Weather was great, after Friday!. Golf, food, Ladder Golf, food, card games, food......

Next Rally is August 23 to 26 in Paso Robles. Still some spaces open, so go to the Dolphin website, print out the registration form and send in your check! You can come to two rallies a year as a guest, before joining the club.

Darryl

Working out the kinks.

O.K. our first trip went well, only found a couple of problems.
* 110 not working on hot water heater.
* Ice maker not making Ice.
* Old school tv a little on the dark side

So our dealer is fixing the first two as well as a couple other minor issues, I'm gonna try and replace the TV with an lcd model. Anyone swap out their TV, what are some shortcuts or hints. Also, does anyone have a solution for a drop in counter top over the sinks?

Dolphin club sounds fun, we will look into it as we grow with our coach.
Any advice is really appreciated.

I do not know how to do a "clicky" but search this forum for this post..
"front lcd tv install in a 2005 sea breeze 8321lx" As you learn about this forum You will see that almost everything has been discussed.. Do a search and see all the ideas and pictures..Questions, send me a note.
On the sink drop ins,, look at what Camping World has. I believe they have some cutting boards that fit.
Go have fun

Assuming National still used Corian for the counters in '07, any Corian dealer should be able to match color and cut them for you. We were luckly when we bought ours, still had the originals.

I replaced both CRTs last year with LED/LCD. These are lighter, thinner, run cooler and use less power than the standard LCDs. If one doesn't have an inverter (which I'm sure you do), they are 12vdc with a 110vac wall WART, so an inverter is not needed to watch TV any time.
