Red face New Member Check In from NorCal - Grass Valley

We have just bought a 2020 Pleasure Way Luxor this last Sunday after searching for over a year. We will physically receive it in 2 weeks as it is being inspected/repaired during that time. I thought I had posted my new member check in this last Monday, but I do not see it, so I am posting again.

We are newbies and need help in what accessories we will need. The rig only came with a power cable; nothing else. I know I will need electrical adapters, surge protector and we are also thinking of getting a water filter to filter the water at the campgrounds. Any help in name brands/quality and where to buy will be of immense help.

You’ll probably want a a 20-30amp adapter so you can plug in at home. I also find it helpful to have more cable. My rig has 34’ and I now carry an extra 20’ after coming up short a few times. And I agree a water filter is a good idea. What are you doing for sewer connection? Does it have a macerator?

Add a water hose, and pressure regulator so you don't over pressurize the piping and water heater. This is the one I use.

Potable water hose if you intend to drink it, or just 'a hose' if you don't. Canvas hoses are especially nice when space is tight, like in a Class B.

I also carry a 50A to 30A dog bone, plus a 15A to 30A. The 50A is because it's all too common for the 30A receptacle in a park to be sloppy loose or burned, with a 50A receptacle that's still sound, and the 15A so you can plug in at home or a friend's house.

I carry a 25 ft 30A extension ford, but I've only needed it at my son's house so far. But it takes little space, so I carry it always.

Also get a windshield and door window cover. Or a curtain you can pull across, though the windshield cover is less obtrusive. I have the Sprinter version of this one from Adco, but there are others.

Get what you need to winterize the water system, on the road, if intending to ever be in cold weather. And learn how to do it while it's still warm out, at home, so you know.

Try the galley - cooking, making coffee, and so on. Or just microwaving or camp stove. The time to find you need something is before you need it. Same with bedding, bathroom, and so on.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

Welcome. You'll get a lot of useful info here. Kanz kran has some good ideas and you'll also discover what you need in the first few trips so don't buy too much ahead of time. Enjoy the rig and post often!

I really like the crew at DeMartini (less than 20 miles from home) and was thrilled when they picked up the Newmar line. I ended up buying used elsewhere when I decided on a 3427 - it’s a very rare coach as it wasn’t a popular floor-plan and they were only made for one year. But the DeMartini guys were very helpful and easy to work with.

Tim and Marta, welcome to IRV2 and Pleasure Way! You will be totally impressed by the fit and finish of the PW product. I picked mine up this past May and haven't had one single 'house' issue..... everything works as designed!

I have had a couple of recalls from Mercedes but I'm also impressed with the new features now offered. I know that you have the RAM chassis which is also a 'tried and true' chassis.

Have fun, safe travels!
