I wanted to wait until I had a little time with my [email protected] before I wrote a review. I finally got around to it: http://jenngrover.com/2014/09/tb-travel-trailer-review/

Hi! This is my first post on this site and just read your review of the [email protected] travel trailer. I found this forum in my research and just exploring how to use it. My only other experience with online forums is with the MGExperience website which deals with restoring MG sports cars. What I've seen so far of this forum mirrors that and appears to have a very supportive group. I am currently researching small travel trailers on the internet and seem to be zeroing in on the [email protected]. Looks about the right size for me, but I have no real experience camping, save for when I was a young lad many, many years ago. As I have been perusing the forum posts, I'm finding other interesting tidbits related to the campground experience and you also mention reasons for choosing a hardside camper related to certain campground rules, etc., which I would not ordinarily consider. At any rate, your review was very timely and informative. Great review and you covered many of my concerns. Thought you'd like to know. Thanks for posting it.
RE: the surge protector - I am solo glad I had this installed. The campground I stayed at last week in Stowe, OH had an outlet with reversed polarity at the pedestal. The Progressive Industries surge protector did the job. I didn't notice that the surge protector had done its job and that I was not getting juice until bed time At that point, I had been quite liberal with my power usage, think I was plugged in. I turned the fridge on propane and thought I would investigate further in the morning. I was able to use my 110 pigtail and switch and provide power without having to move sites, thankfully. That is a mental note to self: check the surge protector for errors before unplugging.
I have not had the chance3 to get much further with my battery issue. I meant to call Ed on Friday, but my work day became too hectic. I understand why people are suggesting that I have a heavier gauge wire installed, but I believe I have probably somewhere between 8-10 gauge, already and it seems as though the RV dealer would know how to properly wire the charge wire. The dealer I was at sold mostly bigger units.
If I have to live with it like it is, I will likely run the fridge on battery for half of the day and then turn it off to prevent total draining when I am driving all day. I am hoping Ed says that my experience does not sound right and that it can be fixed, though.
I just sold my (2) 100 watt Renogy panels because they were just too big with everything else I carry on the big trips. I will likely wait until the spring to replace the. Renogy now has a 100 watt suitcase panel that looks good. I am holding off, hoping they come out with 150 watt suitcase panel, but if they don't, I will probably use a combo of that and my Goal Zero 15 watt for off grid use.
I know some suggest that it is safe to drive with the fridge on propane but I just don't feel comfortable with it.
