Converter Size

I noticed the manual for the WFCO converter that came with our rigs covers several sizes from 35A up to 75A. Do any of you know which one we have? I don't really want to pull the electrical distribution panel to find out. Just hoping someone else may already have checked.

2 x2 bed holding problem

Our 2 x 2 bed attachement also failed, screws pulled out of the wall. Our dealer fixed it by taking a 2 x 4 and spreading glue over the wall side of the 2 x 4 and then screwing it into the wall below the original 2x2 and then screwing the original 2 x 2 into the 2 x 4. Not the way I would have done it but they told me anything I do, and then have a problem with, will not be coverd by warrantey. Everything that can be fixed has been fixed. I still have cabinet door and pannel problems but they have to be ordered. We are off on a two month trip down to the gulf coast. We leave this Saturday. This will be our first long range outing with the 321.

Have a great trip Jim! Look forward to hearing about your experiences on a long outing. Are you staying at one place or will you be moving frequently?

Yep, ours has pulled away as well. I noticed it when I was fixing the bed frame and beefing it up. After wrestling with that f'ing mattress inside the trailer that day, I decided that I would fix the 2x2 another day...have yet to do that.

Have a great trip Jim...How far on the Gulf Coast are you traveling?

We are heading for a place called Gateway RV park in Raymondsville Texas. Its about 15 miles from the gulf. Fishing is suppose to be great. Cost is 220 per month and you pay your own electric. They provide water and sewer. They have a rather extensive and active schedule for retirees. The park only accepts retirees or those over 55. Day time temp usually aound 70/80 night time around 50/60. The park is about 25 miles from the Mexican border. We have no desire to go to Mexico. Scarry place.

I'm pondering trading my 2011 321RES in on a new fifth wheel. I figured I'd throw it out here and see if anyone were interested. Can discuss pricing and what not if theres any interest. send a PM

Equal-i-zer Hitch & Tongue Weight

Not quite sure why but, I decided to go through the entire hitch set-up just to see if anything could be improved. I've always noticed the wind and 18-wheelers passing quite a bit but, thought it was just me not being experienced towing anything this long. Boy, am I glad I did! The dealer offered to install the hitch as part of the deal and I figured they knew what they were doing. After going through the procedure of measuring and re-measuring, I discovered the original installation was WAY off. We just got back from a weekend outing and I can't believe how much better it tows with the correct set-up! Now, there's practically no sway from the big-rigs or wind and the TV feels much more connected with the pavement. If any of you had your Equal-i-zer installed by someone else, I highly recommend going through it yourself or getting a second look. This may have just saved us $40-50K as we were considering getting a different TV for better drivability.


I also purchased a Sherline tongue weight scale rated up to 2000 lbs. With the TT ready for travel, full LP, no water in the tank, a pair of Trojan T-125 6V batteries, the weight at the tongue jack came in at exactly 1200 lbs. The weight at the coupler should be a few pounds less and I'll get that number before our next trip. Full water will unload the tongue a bit but it ends up in the holding tanks which is in front of the axles.

Just out of curiosity, what 5th wheel units are you considering? I think our next rig will be a 5'r but, that's a few years off...

Would one of you fine folks want to do a gal a favor?

We have also gone to great lengths to fix/beef up/redesign/replace that darn sagging mattress and sorry excuse for a hinge system. We improved the sag issue with a half sheet of 1/4" plywood. Of course the shocks are now a bit undersized. We have access to free shocks and will just double them up for now.

But I need the model number, length and picture if anyone has one. Our camper is in storage until April, and we want to hit the ground running when camping season FINALLY rolls around.

Thanks in advance,
Kathy
