We went out on our first trip this weekend. All in all a great trip. Drove about 70 miles souththrough small towns with a little hwy speeds. No issues with pulling or stopping. But, we do have a few minor issues. A kitchen drawer seems to be off track and continues to go off. The sink appears to be leaking between the faucet and the sink. Last, the toilet leaks from the check valve on the back. I can fix all of these with little effort and cost. I did not use a pressurecontrol valve on my hose, could that have caused the toilet to leak? We have a 29BH with the Polar-tec package and it was hot in there. We have a little electric heater and that thing cooked us the first night. Lastnight we shut it off. The weather in Northern Indiana was fairly warm for this time of year but the TT seemed to do great job of holding in the heat. We are already set to goout this weekend. Going to Jackson, MI about an hour of hwy driving away.

Glad to hear you had a good (with minor issues) first trip. The water pressure could have made the leak at the toilet worse but probably didn't cause it. I always use a pressure reducer just because some campgrounds have pretty high pressure. I also turn the water off at the outside valve when away from the rig just to be on the safe side.

After some research I found that the Thetford toilets have problems. They are aware and will send out the replacement part. I will call tomorrow and see if it is as easy as many say.
