So we picked up our 325re on Saturday. All systems were go! We were definitely the only ones running our ac in 42 degree weather. We have a few months to get all the small items fixed. Took us about three hours to figure out what the switch on the stairs was for. But we love it to say the least! Nice work Heartland.

Looks good. I think almost everyone uses those yellow and black storage bins. :)

We do...in the back of the truck for Malcolm's tools. :rolleyes: The bins in our basement are semi-see through so I can see what's in them without opening them.

I have that problem with my one bin in the storage. I keep forgetting what is in there.

We did not. This one has the french door fridge though. We had thought it was residential but found out different during the PDI.

I am going to use my label maker so I know what is inside each of them. We had the see through ones in our NT but the wife says she wants those for the closet floor. Short story, finding the right pair of shoes is more important than finding anything I may need... :cool:

Thats what we hoped to get, but ended up with a smaller (8 cubic foot I think). All the brochures showed the french door style when going with the gas/electric style, but ours is smaller. Hope you are enjoying the new rig. I just returned yesterday from our final trip of the year. Time to winterize and put her to sleep for the winter (hate that).

I think the french door is a residential model.

Thank you John. We are still trying to figure out if we can actually make that trip. I may end up coming down and flying my wife in a few days later. We stayed at the KOA in North Ft Collins. Its about 12 miles from the house. Might be a decent place for a rally some day...

We thought we were getting one as well to the point we were researching solar systems. We are able to choose LP and can hear it firing up the gas on the outside when we had shore power unplugged.

The Wellington KOA?

I thought it looked familiar!

Hi Vikisue,

Might be the switch for the light under the entry steps.

TY for the response,that's exactly what it is. A schematic of the coaches sys's would be great, seems the "monster" is really a "residential" type 5th and its gonna be a long learning curve...nice to see a pure sin wave inverter(guessing its for the reefer) but it seems the converter is not doing its job....batteries run down w/o a charger on it...havven't seen a converter on it but still learning...dealer put 2 12v deka marine cranking bats in..shame...we're researching solar and would have preferred agm's,oh well,as they say "live and learn!!

The learning curve can be pretty steep. We have some owner-written user guides that might help you with the climb. You can get to the from the TOOLS tab at top of the page, selecting HUG - Heartland User Guides. Here's a direct link (http://manuals.heartlandowners.org/?man=User%20Guides).

Congratulations! You can learn a lot reading in these forums. You can get a lot of help real time by attending a rally. Have fun with your new toy.
