2nd A/C Unit

I had the 2nd a/c in the bedroom installed in my until recently. (The one unit could NOT keep up with last year's heat!) We are actually going camping this weekend and Fridays high will be 88 so I will definitely have both a/c units running. I'll let you know how much of a difference it makes. I will add that for you to run both units at the same time you will need to be on a site with 50amp.

JimEli, the 50 amp service is a great feature, but the second A/C pre wiring is an option and it costs $100-$125. You may have to pull the beauty cover on the bed room vent to see if they do indeed have the vent pre wired. if you or the dealer didn't order it pre wired, then you will have to have it done and believe me it will cost you a lot more to have it done now.

Equal-i-zer

Jimmie: I see you show that you use a Equal-i-zer hitch. How do you like the performance and have you ever experienced a Reese or Pro Pride? The wife and I are hoping to purchase a 321 this fall. I already have the 2012 Super Duty Ford Diesel. Any input on hitches would greatly be appreciated.

Hey Ted,
I really have had good luck with my Equal-i-zer hitch up until the last three months. I put new Michelin tires on in February and everything changed as far as hitch performance and keeping the trailer from swaying. I have finally decided after three months that it has got to be the tires as this is when all of my hitch problems began. I towed my 321RES from Ohio to Florida last summer where I bought it for 1,000 miles with no problems at all. So I know the hitch is good. I have in the last three months adjusted my hitch all of the place with no luck. Sooo, I have purchased new BFGoodrich tires, which were the original stock tires on the truck, and they will be installed tomorrow. Hopefully next weekend I can hook the trailer up and take drive down the highway to see how it handles.

So in answer to your question, yes it is a great hitch and easy to use and setup. I have never used the other two hitches as I have always had the Equal-i-zer brand hitch for this trailer and my previous Outback 28RSDS trailer and have been very happy with the hitch both times. Good luck and you will love your 321RES!

Thanks Jimmie for the input. You know when I received my Ford I picked up a bad vibration above 60 MPH on my new Continental tires. Turns out a bad front left tire that just refused to balance out. Ford put a new tire on and what a difference. The right tires can make a hugh difference. Keep me informed on the new BF Goodrich.

Our Camper is back home!

After 7 months of storage and numerous warranty repairs while in storage, the 321 is back!



Sorry for the poor camera picture - The green truck and tan / brown trailer certainly make a statement - color coordinated it is not.. We luv both!!

I never would have thought the truck tires would have that much of an effect on the sway.. I suppose they too are part of the stability while towing!

Has anyone heard of when they are coming out with the 2013's 321`RES? am wondering about the interior changes and any other changes they may come up with. Heard of a few problems, wondering if they are addressing the issues.

I asked the same question of a Dealer at Cincinnati and all he could find out was that the interior window shades have been changed to a style resembling a more residential style. I'm not sure what he meant by that but I'll keep researching.

I think I may have seen that done before. My friend/neighbor did something just like that recently....

DINETTE ALERT!!. My wife and I are here at the Mystic Conneticut KOA for the week and last night while we were eating at the table she mentioned that the table squeaked a tad. So, tonight being the dutiful husband, I crawled under the table and while looking for the cause of the squeaking I noticed two hinges that are attached on only one side, the other side is not attached to anything. As I was trying to figure out what the purpose of the hinges was I noticed some grooves in the bottom of the table. I discovered if you lower both hinges and sit on the couch side of the table you can pull the table top toward you to give the window side more room. Bet that isin't in the owners manual anywhere.

That's Connecticut!
