The remote is pretty cool once you get the hang of it.

1. Press the power button to turn it on. That's the top, right button with a circle with a line. After pressing it, you'll have to wait a few seconds for it to wake up. When it's ready it will say "press power + select to begin" or something like that.

2. Press the power and the select buttons at the same time. The select button is on the left side adjacent to the up/down arrows.

3. Now you can use the select button to pick the function you wish to perform (slides, awning, jacks, etc...)

4. After selecting which function you want, just press (and hold) the up or down arrow button. You can control all of the slides, both stab jacks and the awning.

I would recommend checking the cabinet doors at the entertainment center before moving the main or kitchen slide. It's easy to tear off a door if it's open. We also have pets and have to make sure their toys are not in the way when closing the slides.

Hope this helps.

It does not operate the tongue jack or the TV. Keep in mind that the front and rear stabilizer jacks are not rated to lift up the trailer, only for steadying the rig to reduce rocking while walking around inside. You should stop lowering the stabilizer jacks as soon as you hear the motor start to strain. Any more than that and you'll start breaking lots of expensive parts. Depending on the typeof ground you're parked on, you may have to adjust the jacks every few days as they can work their way into softer or sandy ground.

We also use a set of Bal-X tire chocks to help with stability.

Winter Travel Question.

Well as everyone knows it is damn cold and we are leaving next week to go to Florida. My question being, since it is so cold, is there a freezing issue for the water system while we are traveling since the furnace will not be on? I figure I would just fill the water tank and not the water lines and water heater. Thought being while traveling the water tank would slosh around and prevent freezing, then when we get further south I can fill the water lines and water heater when the chance of freezing diminishes. Anyone have any experience in this matter. Our 321 is a 2011 and we still love it. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I made a mistake in my previous instructions on starting the remote. Step 2 should be to press the Select and the Up Arrow buttons at the same time. Sorry for the confusion.

Winter travel

It's good to hear you are getting out of the deep freeze and heading for warm weather, we left Washington state at the start of the year and headed for Palm Springs. We were fortunate that we were traveling on I5 and it never did get below freezing, but if I would have been traveling while temps were below freezing I would have winterized our unit and not taken the chance of freezing things up. We stayed in a hotel the first night and didn't worry about camping on the road. If anything freezes and breaks it normally would cost a lot more than a $75.00 room and an rv site will be least 1/2 that amount. Enjoy the sun, we sure are, the weather here in Palm Springs is incredible this year, 75 to 80 everyday with no wind,

If you're not using the water lines or the heater, why not just travel empty and fill the water tank when you get into warmer weather? The sealed undercarriage will offer some protection against freezing conditions but, the colder the temps, the faster it gets into the insulated spaces.

I wash with a product from Camping World that's supposed to be for gel coats but, any automotive wash and wax will work. Just pay extra attention to the front cap as many have seen early fading in this area.

A few things you may want to consider for your new TT:

1. Power protection system. We went with the Progressive Industries 50A hard-wired system. Many RV parks have sketchy electrical hook-ups. This will protect your RV from faulty wiring and under/over voltage problems.

2. Powered roof fan for the living room vent. Really helps with air circulation and cooling on warmer days.

3. The provided mattress sucks. We replaced it with a residential mattress and reinforced the bed frame to prevent sagging.

4. A battery watering system. Getting to the batteries in our rigs is difficult. A remote watering set-up makes it a snap.

5. We replaced all of the lights with LEDs to reduce power consumption and heat. Make sure you get LEDs with a color temperature of 3000-3300K, otherwise the lights will too blue.

6. We replaced the wheels and tires with 16" rims & LT235/85 R16 tires for higher loading and speed ratings. In my opinion, there are very few ST rated tires worth a **** and all are limited to 65 mph.

Just a little food for thought.

Hi Mike,

If you don't mind me asking where did you locate the surge protector when you hardwired it in? An additional item I would add to the list is a tire monitoring system. We purchased the TST system and have been very pleased with it.

We got the Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C. The main unit installs next to the converter behind the breaker panel. The remote display is on the kitchen wall next to the outlet just above the breaker panel. I don't remember exactly what we paid but, at the time, Makarios RV had the best price.

So far, I know it saved our electrical system on two occasions. We've plugged in to some sketchy looking pedestals that I probably wouldn't have without it.

Progressive Electrical Management System, Hardwire 50A/240V EMS-HW50C

Thanks to all for your suggestions. We leave tomorrow empty. After Maryland looks like the temp will be more cooperative. Looking forward to Fl weather even if it is not in the 70s anything above freezing is ok with me.
