he is right you know. there can be hidden damage. once we had a TT come in and it looked like a small roof leak and it turns out the entire front side wall was rotten and had to be replaced. Now I know you are saying leak is one thing and damage from a hit is different, but there still can be broken struts under the outer covering

I think I can fix it myself with about $50 in stuff and make it look like new again! Just need to find some time and no rain to get it done...

mods to be added in the next few weeks.

One Vent covers for all three vents.
Two Ball Chochks order, received and in place.
Three, adding shelves to cabinets that have waisted space because they are way to tall. I will cut peg board to fit the size of the side of the cabainet from top to bottom. The two peg board sides will be mirror images of each other. ie all holes line up. I will buy the metal slip pins that fit the peg board and are made for holding shelves. They are sold at most hardware stores. I will cut the shelves to slip fit between the peg board and sit on the pin holders. No screws need, shelves will rest on the slip pins in the peg board and will be held in place with tension. The cabainets in question are the one next to the stove, the cabanit under the bathroom sink, the cabanits in the rear on each side of the TV and finally the entire area in the very front storage compartment. By useing tension the shelf can be removed, as can the peg board holding the shelf holders. You would never know they were ever there. I also will be taking the two screws that hold the entire tv frame and reversing them so the head of the screw is toward the cable side. The cables hang up on the long screw side now and did break the connectors on our first Tv. By reversing the screws the cables dont hang up any more.

Would love to see some pictures of the cabinet moods! ;-)

Another idea. I put plastic gards over the three vents. I bought the guards but instead of putting the guards on they way the instructions showed I reversed the front tabs so that they are up across the top instead of down. I then took a larger nut and used it as a spacer between the tab and the roof vent. This raised the fron of the vent about 1 1/2 inch higher then the back and allows me to open the vent top all the way.

Space Saver Coffee Maker

Just curious if anyone has installed one of these, if so, where and how was it installed?
We are using a stove top percolator which makes good coffee, it just takes too long.. Plus, we could save a little storage space..
Thanks

I haven't heard of anyone putting in one lately, but a few years back people were taking them out because they leaked so bad all over the counters

That is good to know.. Thanks!! I have also noticed there are none at the local stores such as Walmart/Target etc.. May be the reason, and a good reason to ditch that idea!!

Bill,

The 321 RES are delivered with 50 Amp service and installed by Keystone during the manufacturing process!
Thanks for the notes there - as I would certainly not try this at home..
As mentioned, I have a single AC unit and have no worries on 30Amp service - 2 AC units would be a different story - And yes, folks have have had the second AC wiring installed for delivery.. Read these 58 pages..
;-)
"Happy Trails" Would like a beer with ya someday if I ever leave this Great state!

To the folks who have received a 2012 or 2013 321 RES - did you receive 30 or 50 Amp service power? Our 2011 is 50 amp (a surprise to us).. Curiosity here??
Thank you

If you have the 50 amp it means you have a second ac or the prep package for one... Everything else should be 30

Electric Service

We just received our 2012 res321. It came with the wiring for a second airconditioner already in place in the bedroom. Its electrical system is 50 amp. I have a Champion 4000watt peak/3500watt continous generator. It will run the air contidioner, freezer/fridge, and microwave all at the same time without bogging down. If the electric hot water heater should kick on while all the others are running it will trip the circut breaker. So I retested it by turning one appliances off at a time. Everything runs fine as long as you dont run them all at once. When we are making supper I will just switch the hot water heater over to prophane until we are done.
