New 2021 Forest River Georgetown

I bought a new 2021 Forest River Georgetown. The first time I used it we couldn't keep the indoor temp at 70deg. It got down to 58deg inside. The temp outside was only 38deg here in Texas during those days in January. When I got home from the Dealer I put it in the storage facility for 10 days prior to the little "shakedown" trip. The storage facility had electricity and before I left everything was running. The Dealer told me they would have to reset the controls. How did the controls get out of whack when I went from the Dealer to the Campsite in less than 10days?

This is not the optimum forum to ask. Consider asking over here: https://www.forestriverforums.com/forums/f16/ as some factory people monitor it and there are a lot more Georgetown owners there.

Likely, your dealer has not a frggin' clue. People have reported issues with the new Precision Plex touchscreen tie-in to the heating and ventilation system, such as units staying on and never shutting off and the front and back temperature sensors being swapped. One person said they had to have a circuit board changed.

To "reset" the Precision Plex system, just kill all power to the coach. The thing reboots itself on each power-up of the 12 volt system. There are other ways to do that but that's the simplest. If you see the touchscreen restarting, you did it correctly.

If you do not have a login over there, just use the same email address and password as you use here because both forums are owned by the same company. It will find your account, you'll setup your profile and you'll be good to go.

Good luck,

Ray

Not your issue here but on very cold nights close all shades, including windshield, and put slides in...at least the big one. Especially important if you need to run generator for heater fan and tank heaters. Most of the nitwit designers have the generator exhaust under the large slide. On very cold nights, where there is no wind, you’ll set off your CO alarm...if you don’t die.

Like a house, the bigger the unit, the more places that you loose heat. Our unit is smaller and we winterized all of the windows, vents and the air conditioner. I also added a 120V 20amp input circuit that feeds 2 outlets in the coach to plug in space heaters. We were in Sedona for Christmas and the park was frozen but we were toasty.
