Smile Hello From Mulmur Ontario Canada!

Hi everyone!

We have just purchased a Sunset Trail SF32RL and are so excited about getting our camp life started! We will take delivery in September and are looking forward to our first trip in November to the South West US.

Does anyone have advice in advance of our departure...things we should look out for, things we should be prepared for with regards to the workings of our trailer. I am a newbie to RVing, my husband is not - so any advice would be appreciated!

I am curious as to why the front nose slide-out technology didn't seem to stick as a product offering? does anyone have any insights into this?

Congratulations on the new camer and welcome to the forum. Do a very thorough PDI and take notes or a video. Also take a few short shake down trips and get to know the rv and how it works before a long trip. Also the shake down trips can help you find any problems or questions that arise before your big trip. Good luck and enjoy the new rig.

Welcome and congrats. There is good info in the documents section on PDI checklists and also a list of items you should have Eg surge protector, water pressure regulator, water and sewer attachments etc

Congratulations, the SF32RL is a nice unit. RE forward slide tech, I'm just guessing but the bed was so far forward that getting in/out might be an issue.

Not sure if it was water infiltration with the front slide, but it seemed like a good idea.
