Have finally taken delivery 2023 21RWS

Hi folks, My wife and I took ownership yesterday of our new 21RWS from Cordelia RV, CA.
I have to admit I was a little anxious, worked up, maybe a little defensive feeling on the drive down not knowing what to expect.
we were armed for bear with our check list, electrical checkers, CD, DVD, flashlight and I have to honestly say it was absolutely painless.
Kudos to the whole group there at Cordelia RV. We only found a few items that needed attention ( none were loose valances ha ha) and they were corrected PDQ.

Going to give it a good shakedown now and take notes, but so far so good.
Thanks for all the tips!

I hope yours is less painful than ours was on the first trip with window valences falling off and the slide quitting, luckily in the retracted position! That turned out to be a wonky ground. It's been mostly fine since although the Norcold doesn't like to stay on while driving (and sometimes not driving). The tank monitor died after a year and the Thetford toilet bowl sprayer got calcium/lime build ups. Not huge issues so we're quite happy. Have hauled it on some rough roads so I've made door/drawer locks. Adding a memory foam mattress topper was a big improvement. I also added Ikea USB reading lights as that KGB interrogation lamp over the bed is just wrong.

Happy trails!

HAHA!!! That's so true! I thought the same thing. I ended up putting a small square of duct tape right over the lens and it is actually perfect light output now.
