ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT before we leave to go pick our's up. Boy I hate waiting!! I called the dealer the Thursday and asked how the window install was coming and........ it hasn't been installed yet! Getting a little concerened but I was assured It will be installed before we get there and done right. Trucks all done and ready for the trip. I finshed up the last day and half installing the on board compressor, air lines and wiring. Just waiting for the second elec. over air rocker switch to arrive to be installed. I want to add the second switch so I could control both air bags in the rear seperatly. I have the 60 gal Titan fuel tank and that will add 500 lbs more on the driver side. Wired up the plug in the bed. Boy its hard drilling that first hole. Drilling the 1 1/2" hole wasn't bad but the 1/4" hole was the hardest. I was able to locate the plug just behind the wheel well mid way up the bed. Pluged in the short pig tail adaptor that sends power to the 5th wheel and also has a jumper wire to the compressor for the fith wheel hitch. Everything worked as planned. Did I mention that we are very excited and can't wait. LOL

Steve I have a mac computer is this anti maleware still needed?

I don't know enough about Macs to advise you on that but I'm sure that info can be found somewhere on the net...or is it referred to as "the cloud" now?

btw... congrats on the arrival of your new trailer.... I know you've been anxiously for this day to come.

UNDRPSI, echo TravelinAnderson's congratulations... two more days. You must be sitting on pins and needles.

Don't forget your tire pressure gauge. Our 36RL was way under. You are probably already aware of this, but for Marathon tires bring them upto 80 psi, and for G-rated tires, put 110 psi in them.

Safe travels, Vic & CindyEdited by: Adamsvr

As for the ride home, you'll probably notice alot of chucking in your hitch. Don't be overally concerned, it will stop after you load it with your personal stuff. Best of luck and enjoy! Edited by: Adamsvr

I'm not sure about maleware on Mac's but I have an office full of them (22) and I don't have any problems at all. With a Mac you don't have much of a problem with Viruses. We don't use any of that software on any of our computers except the PC's

Well I broke the cardinal rule! NEVER SIGN The papers before you do your walk through! Or at least see it! Our dealer has pulled the camper back into the garage to try and find the electrical problems and to finish the prep! Salesman knew when we would be coming down to take delivery for over month. Today is the salesman day off and he asked someone else to help it there was trouble and there has been lots so far. Needless to say we are very dissopointed! Our dealer apologized and said that they were sorry that they had no excuses, and told me that they had dropped the ball! All we want is for it to be right. Sorry for ranting but have no place to go and been here all day and .... well just not the way I was hoping for today to go.

Another apologetic dealer's "poor service" delivery story. You're in good company. Most delivery and service stories have been overwhelmingly negative. Such poor business people...I don't know what they're thinking. (Lillyputz, you can chime in any time!)

Anyway, just be thankful that you only have to buy one of these.

<div style="text-align: left; ">Well there Making good Mike. But I should have asked to see our unit first. If nothing more then to do a quick walk through before the paper work. And I didn't and that is my fault. I asked about it but was told that everything was all set and going to be good by my saleman. First mistake. I think by really pressing to at least looking at it, it would have made them tell me that they had found a eletrical problem and were trying to solve it. Which I would have been all right with because I know they were working to fix it. I hate being lied too, or having other people think I cant handle the bad news. The more up front you are with me the better. I totally understand that stuff happens and needs to be fixed but dont hide it from me. Today I caught these guys with there pants down and wanted to know what the issues were. When the service manager finally came out to tell me what was going on I understood and told him to just take there time and make it right. They put us up in a very nice hotel and gave us gift cards for dinner and breakfast. They also offered to install the 4 Max turbo vent covers for me. I was going to install them myself but Im going to take them up on there offer.</span><div style="text-align: left; "></span><div style="text-align: left; ">So after I have cooled down, I think things will work out. I know it shouldn't have happened in the first place but things do and I think its all how you handle the bad news and how the dealer takes care of the mistake. So far we are pleased with how they are trying to correct the problem. Just wish they would have told us this morning at 10am instead of 3:30 this afternoon.</span></blockquote>

Well, I'm sure you're still very excited to be so close to taking it home. Good luck to you and hope you are enjoying yourself in the new rig for the holiday. As you know, there are several FL "soothsayers" on this forum for FL-specific problems, as well as the rest of us for help on general issues. Let us know how you make out.

Sounds like you bought it from Windish RV in Lakewood Colorado. No PDI. No Quality Control. detail was not done before our walk through on 4-24-12. We left to do the paper work and wait for there call, while they finished the detail and punch list repairs. picked it up many hours later. went to a rv camp ground. opened it up to discoverthey did not fix a dam thing, inside or paint out side. I was told, there walk through guy Gary did not even turn in our punch list ( I have since requested a copy of the punch list. Windish will not give me one ). after the walk through and lied about the tire pressure and why the TVs did not work. spent the next two days getting some repairs done. some they half assed. some not fixed. others, they did not know how to fix. others needed parts ordered. if they had bothered to do a PDI and or Quality Control. they would have found most of the problems.

We discovered many more problems on our 1100 mile trip home. it has been at a Crossroads dealer for repairs since 5-10-12. it should be done next week. then it has to go to a paint shop for about 10 to 14 days for paint and body repairs. I know. I've been a pain in Brians ass, but he has been doing alot to get everything taken care, so far.

I filed a complaint with BBB in Colorado against Windish RV and have inquired about the RVlemon law in Colorado.Windish hasoffered to buy the unit back. I told them. they could gladly have it back, if they paid for travel, insurance, sales tax, reg and license fees along with the sales cost and a apology for there lack of concern for the customer.

Shame on Windish RV. Ihave not heard from them since.
