Lol! Very nice, I was a little late on the blue we wanted but I liked the red also. However, if I could have found another Orange one I would've bought it. This was our 424. We had a RZR 1000s inside and a 900s on the trailer.

Great setup also...the orange was actually our preference as both bikes are orange but it would have taken too long to get so we settled on the blue since it was in stock.

Prowler59,

I see you're "double towing" a trailer with a RZR behind your fifth wheel. I typically tow a boat behind our trailer. My rig, (a F250, 31' trailer and 18' boat) measures 74' from front bumper to prop on the outboard. I'd suspect that your rig is even longer than that. Some states have a 65' max length, Michigan's limit is 75'. Because of that limit, we usually don't tow out of Michigan since we don't want to deal with the potential of being stopped and measured and face any of the host of problems that could happen.

Have you measured your rig and if it is longer than mine, have you had any "second looks" or "problems" with towing through locations that "watch for revenue generators" to tow through their area?

JRTJH, that was my old rig. We sold the 2 seat RZRs and bought an XP4 so we don't have to triple tow anymore. However, I have never been stopped or had any issues with towing like that. I have had issues getting in smaller gas stations, parking areas, etc. The setup in that pic was right at 77' long, so technically it was illegal everywhere. I did get nervous about towing like that in FL tho, but we went all the way to Disney and back with zero issues. Maybe lucky lol!

Thanks for the info. We usually go back to Louisiana, then on to Texas or some other place warm every year. I'd love to have the boat along and do some fishing around the intercoastal waterway or the marshes in south Louisiana, but we've been reluctant to get stuck somewhere with the choice of leaving the trailer or the boat on the side of a highway because of a "speed trap in Woodworth" kind of situation....

It's good to know you didn't have any problems. That may "color our decision" on whether to haul the boat to Lake Charles this coming trip.

No problem. I think you'll be fine, but that's up to you. There so many people in this area that double tow, as long as you're not speeding and all lights work, you should be good.

Iím a first time RV owner and got one of the early Fuzion 416. Pre-in command.
I wish I had known more about the PDI and what to check.

Some of this might not apply.

Leveling system -
Make them level it, then step back and look from a distance. Is it actually level.

Hydraulic system -
check the pump reservoir for fluid running down the side. Check the all 6 pads for fluid especially the one under the pump reservoir. And connections.

Patio system -
now that you know itís level. Make them set up the patio and look at it from a distance. Is it straight out? My cables were too long which made it have a slight downward slope.

A/C(s) -
Make them pull off the ceiling assembly. Make sure they did a good job putting foil tape around the edges. Mine looked like someone covered the whole vent with foil and poked their fingers thru it.

Also, make sure the panel between the cold air and return air is positioned properly. Mine wasnít and the cold air was escaping right back out they the return.

Vents -
Can you feel air coming out when a/c is on?

Heat strip -
if you have one make sure they hooked it up. Mine wasnít.

Shower -
Door slide bottom rail. Check the inside and make sure itís sealed where the track meets the shell. Mine wasnít. The water would hit the inside glass, slide down to the track, thru the little slit then in between the rail and shell, then out and down to the floor.

Awnings-
Extend all, turn on the leds and check for burned out lights.
Do they extend smoothly? Make sure the ends donít wobble.

Wireless woofer -
Ask where it is. I didnít even know I had one until I had to find my water pump and it was right next to it.

Gray, black water valves. Run water thru the black tank if you can to make sure theyíre labeled correctly. Mine werenít.

Heat pads -
Are they labeled so you know which one goes to fresh, gray etc? Labeled correctly?

Fuel station -
Are the tanks labeled correctly to the generator and wired correctly to the monitor panel?

Despite all of the issues I had I really love my unit.

Iíve added a pic of the disconnected heat strip and crap job done on the a/c.Click image for larger version

I had asked about a woofer in mine and they told me they didn't know if it has one so I guess at some point I'll check that out. Not a big deal as I use a Samsung soundbar when were at races to Bluetooth music to.
