2016 Fleetwood Bounder 33C

We are into year eight and going strong. The rig has not been problem free, but the problems have been relatively minor. We have yet to be truly stranded by anything. Lots of changes along the way.

Horn was pathetic, so replaced with Bad Boy horn. Much better.

Precision Plex main board had to be changed out. Added Bluetooth since the updated board supported it. So nice to put slides out while standing near them.

Added accumulator tank to water pump. Much smoother performance

Outfitted the plumbing bay and all hose with brass quick connects.

Added awnings to the windows, as this western sun is brutal with only two ACs.

Built my own AGS from parts bought on Amazon.

Front shade failed while still under warranty.

Rear AC/Heat Pump failed. Replaced under extended warranty.

We were skeptical of the Residential Fridge (Samsung RF18), but have come to love it. Cools down quickly, and Ice Maker works great once we found to water valve for it.

Which brass disconnects did you get that donít leak?
Iíve tried a couple different brands but none seem to be great.
I have a softener so I use them at a minimum every 3 weeks but usually sooner based on water hardness.

I will try and remember to look up the details when we get off the road.

I will often avoid anything with plastic, but in this case all of the important mechanics were metal, and important connections are never in the sun.
