I know. I've been thanked more times than I can count. Now, will you please, in the name of all that is holy, crawl back into the hole you came from. I'm tired from smacking you around.

Hey Jim, that would be great. We're going on our first outing in the 321 this weekend down to Patagonia Lake. Hopefully, we'll come back with good stories.
Regards,
Mike

As to Keystone...while we've had some of these same problems....I think you'll find issues with any of the manufacturers.....We've been doing the RV thing for 35 years....and had different brands across the years....always problems. If you've bought new rv's before...you know this to be true. Sort of like having a house built...always things to have 'ironed' out.
Would be good though if someone could figure out how to send this 'thread' to Keystone.
I installed a battery disconnect switch to stop the battery from dying when we are not hooked up to shore power. Have not had any problems with the remote.

Our 321 came from the factory with a battery disconnect switch. It's a red key located on the front wall of the pass-through on the driver's side next to the stab Jack switches. I'm not sure it's hooked up correctly because the tongue Jack and front lights still work when in the "off" position.

Looks Great Clayhammer! With our Ford forest green truck, the two make more of a statement, not a balanced one at that.. When we get the trailer back we'll snap a picture..

JimEli - Are you folks full timing in the 321? We would love to do that for a while..

The elastic straps appear to be a wider version of the elastic waist band found on Fruit-Of-The-Loom underwear.

Really.

Really?

Id say its about as strong as a 1960s vintage lawn chair. No wonder the mattress sags with anything heavier than a newborn baby on it.

Im contemplating options to strengthen the support without adding a substantial amount of weight.

More to follow.
Ok, We have spent the last three weekends in our new 321RES. We found the mattes is settling in the middle. After reading al the comments on the matters we did some research. Our problem is the webbing under the mattress is designed to make thing softer. However we found the webbing is attached to the outer frame and settles in the middle. Has any on tried just putting a piece of 1/4" Luan plywood cut to size in the middle of the frame?

Me (on the right) and turtle1 (on the left) last weekend
We get a lot of double takes when people walk by.

We may try this as soon as we get our trailer back from storage / dealer and warranty work... I bet it would work, but I may space some small holes in the luan to provide a little air circulation.. Just a thought..
Thanks for the idea..

New guy on the block.

I've been following this forum since we bought our 321 in January 2012 from our neighbor. Lots of great information. Thought Id join and make a few contributions along the way. We were out for the last three weekends and all went well, absolutely no issues. The TT towed better than our old Rockwood Signature Ultralite and every appliance etc. worked flawlessly. For those who don't have one, attached are the operating instructions for the thermostat. I also made another cabinet and towel rack for the bathroom. My wife is 5'2" and can't use the installed mirror since it is so high. Enough for now!
