Congratulations Brett and Jan. We picked up our new 36RE on October 28th and we are still getting used to what all the switches do and what all the maintenaince requirements are. We have camped over night a total of 8 times so far and really love our 36RE. Make sure you register all your items that are covered under each manfacturer. You can do most of them via email.

Thanks and I have started getting the registrations done.Seems like for every registration i've sent in the past results in a 10 fold increase in junk mail! I guess it's a consequence one must endure. If you see a black and silver coach towed by a a grey F350 give us a wave! Thanks for the tips and kind words.

We took out our new 31SL this past weekend and ended up crushing a box of Kleenex that had fallen of the rear shelf while extending out the rear slides. Lesson learned - not only check drawers, but do not leave items on the rear shelf during travel.

I'm also continuing to have problems with blowing the 10 amp fuse for Lippert leveling system. I'm taking it in for warranty work in a couple of weeks. I believe this fuse is underrated. I read that another Redwood owner was having the same problem and he replace the fuse with a 10 amp breaker which eliminated the problem. I may do the same. My fuse has blown 3 times to date.

Regarding the problems 'snider' is experiencing with the 10 amp fuse on the Lippert Leveling System.

I had the same problem(s) on my 36FB and replaced the fuse with a circuit breaker.

Interestingly, it wasn't the leveling system that was blowing the fuse... It was ME not releasing the main slide switch button as soon as the pump motor started laboring after the slides were in as far as they could go. Fortunately I discovered this at the dealership during my walkthru, and didn't have to deal with it on the road.

Sinder, I spoke with the techs about the fuse problem we have been hearing about when we did the walk through on our 36re this week. He said that our unit was delivered with a 10 amp breaker instead of a fuse so maybe Redwood has made a design change since you bought your unit. He suggested that when extending the slides to do it in intervals rather than a continuous closed to full open operation.Maybe that would help you until you get or in for warranty work. Sorry to hear about the loss of your Kleenex!

Safe travels
Brett and Jan

Limit switches would cure the issue balorenz mentioned. Our Cameo has limit switches for slide retraction and our friends have limit switches on their Carri-Lite...

We were at Lazy Days here in Tucson the other day and checked out a 36RL that had just arrived. It has a beautiful full body paint scheme unlike any we've looked at yet.

Can't seem to get them to come down to the same price as Explorer RV in Texas... September is a long ways away..

Just spoke with Doug Richards my factory sales rep about several items...Our RW 36 FB was supposed to be off line 04/02 when actually it came off the 10th about 8 days behind projection...Quality control ...Everyon thinks once your unit is out of paint, it dries and then isshipped from paint to dealer...In fact it goes back to factory to be reinspected for quality of paint and sealing areas around seams and other places...Then it is picked up by one of several shippers who also ship for other manufacturers.....Some units may be delivered before others because they may have flaws to be taken care of before being shipped or fo the fact that these units are heavy and maybe they have to wait til a tow vehicle becomes avaiilable to handle the shipping weight of your unit..I was advised that a certain unit has departed before mine because the dealer made enough profit that he sent his own tow vehicle to pick it up..just to satisfy the customer.....My unit should be at the dealer by next Friday 04/20

Maybe that's why some of us are still waiting.
