New NEW 2011 Thor Serrano 33A - new to MH world

Hello, we are Beth and Bill and we have just purchased our first MH. We are new to the RV lifestyle, we have rented a Class C before, but this is our first Class A experience. We are newly retired and are looking forward to our travels. We have two corgi dogs (our babies now that all the other children are grown) Our MH is a new 2011 Thor Serrano 33A, FRED, 34 feet with three slides. We got what we think is a great deal on this brand new (but older model that had not been sold) The dealer took our offer(which included a very high end EW). We our going out on our first "shake down" camping trip tomorrow night. Hopefully all will go well because we leave in 10 days for a three week adventure! I do hope all goes well, we have read so many horror stories, and we have so much to learn!

Congrats and welcome from another Serrano owner.
We have a Serrano 31X and a Wrangler toad, and full-time in it. 22,000 and counting.

Happy Trails!

Wow! Appears to have the retractable tv directly across from the couch for excellent viewing without sitting sideways or turning your neck. If so, this would be very similar to our Itasca Meridian 34 which we consider a great feature.

Things to check on your Serrano

1. One thing to do without fail is put your slides out. On the underside at the outside edge you will see a line of screws that hold the lower edge trim to the slide. These are common steel screws, pull one and get a box of replacement stainless screws and replace all one at a time. Failure to do this will result in the screws rusting and the head popping off. The trim will slip and break the factory adhesives/sealer. Waiting until failure to repair is a problem.
2. Using a flashlight look at the Fuel filler tube and check to be sure the short connecting hose is not crimped.
3. If you have a water leak around the side Cap front window. (You Will) there is a Thor bulletin on the mirror sealing. Mine was OK but I had the leaks on both sides. Check where the Front Cap meats the body at the drip rail. There is a 1 inch run of vinyl in the aluminum rail. Cut the vinyl around the cap and squeeze in some sealer. The small cut will not be visible.

If they built these the way we would like we could not afford them. Have a lot of friends with different coaches, they all have their share of problems. I love my Serrano.
