      Wife and I went for a motorcycle ride today over to Platinum and saw your [email protected] is the shop. Peter or John were not there, so no update on mine. I'm not holding my breath that it is coming anytime soon with all the delays I've been hearing about. Depending on arrival I'll likely ask the to store it over the winter for me..

      Problem I'm hearing about is the cassette toilet being out of stock...got an email tonight from John... September 30th is her date of arrival into our family...will ask about yours when we're there...John is always amazed at how the " social media" connects us all...it really is cool!

      that's exciting for you guys...I'm no longer too worried with late delivery...have a bunkhouse up north Haliburton area that will keep me busy...John or Peter will call me tomorrow I believe, as Greg(Craig?) left them a message for me. I talked to him for awhile, he was very helpful answering some of my queries and provided some of his own suggestions and advice...nice group there.

      Understand about not worrying..we hadn't planned on getting her till the rv show...somehow she arrived..lol..we live near Belleville in the country so we also can keep ourselves occupied with outside work..Greg and John have been great for us...only starting to deal with Peter...we ended up buying a cover since our pole barn is a little bit behind schedule..gotta live small town living, even slower due to Covid backlogs...

      Hi, Greg said to me he was waiting on some 6v batteries for your trailer. If you are able to can you explain to me in Layman's terms why go to the two 6V. I really suck at understanding electrical, and from what I can tell people use it for Boondocking more, I assuming it either charges better and or allows you to run off the batteries longer. What I don't get is how.

      p.s. your trailer looks awesome from what I could see from outside the garage...

      @rodent77... I'm not really electrically smart either ..from what I've read it increases the number of amp hours for you..it also allows you to be using one battery while charging the other... unfortunately lithium ( which is considerably lighter) is out of our price range...we also decided against AGM's as well...also because of cost...with our [email protected] we had the standard 12 volt that John supplied, we still had the original battery..we didn't try ours...still learning about battery management..but knew that 2 6 volts gave us more opportunity to try some off grid camping...or at least overnighting without [email protected] an excellent source about many subjects...Google Jenn Grover Photography...lots of good reads and she's been doing you tube videos on her newly upgraded 2021 [email protected] S...she had a 2015 and decided all the new stuff would be beneficial for how she camps..this forum and FB are really good for lots of info

    Hello, If I may ask what Mods are you having installed? I'm inundated with so many ideas and recommendation I have no idea if it is a good to do them now or wait...The one I'm thinking would be a a good Idea is the Victron Battery monitor . Have also been wondering if 30 amp hardwired surge protector is worth it?

      Haven't done the monitor..may get this done next spring at uCamp2021...got Austin at NuCamp to change the fantastic fan to maxxair, liked that we didn't have to put a cover on like we had on our [email protected] yes I've met Neil and Karen , met them with the Quebec/Ontario [email protected] meetup.We had thought about get the ems hardwired but we already have a separate one so we'll start with that.

      Cool, thanks for the info. I read some comments in regards to the Maxxair fan. Trying to be as prepared as possible for when the [email protected] comes in. I'm likely getting ahead of myself, just need to get a feel of the trailer 1st. Neil has been very informative and helpful as well. Thanks again...

    Hi there. John here. I recently purchased a 2021 320S and am curious (since you have one, too.) I just took delivery yesterday and I have read all the manuals and tested everything and I just love it. However, I can't for the life of me figure out how to keep the glass stove-top open while cooking. I must be doing something wrong. Are you experiencing this?
