First .... WELCOME ......

I've had my 2014 now for about a month and love it. I think you made a very good choice.

Things I've changed on mine so far:
Strapped on the painted fence post with some gutter inside it to use as a drawer for storing the sewer hose.

New Matters (8 in Memory foam from Mattress Insider)

2 Inch mattress topper for placing on the Dinette when made into a bed.

LED awning lights.
-----------------------------
Some highlights from previous versions:
New roof, it's not a rubber roof.
Rounded counter top inside
Dinette Drawers

Hi and Welcome, I think you will love it. Love being in my Premier and cannot wait to camp in it. Have done some mods, 2 things I am thinking of are LED awning lights, looking for some that I can leave installed. Also looking at getting some X-chocks but want to camp at least once to see if the movement is similar to the last trailer.

Good luck with your new trailer.

I purchased the X-chocks for my Premier, they are good and stabelize things well. My wife noticed the movement so I put on the x-chocks to eliminate it.

From my perspective I would say "Yes", though I am a little biased. We really enjoy our 19FBPR.

Welcome and enjoy!

Congrats! We got our 2013 Premier 30REPR in December and took it on our first full trip for seven days in April. We did not want to leave and loved our new camper. No problems so far except for the outside shower head that is broken, so we are taking it back this week and getting a new one. It looks great and is so comfortable. You made a great choice!!! Happy camping

Smile 30 REPR switch help for new 2014

Anybody with a 2014 30 REPR I just picked mine up Thursday and there is a switch right below the thermostat but we can not figure out what it is for. Even the dealership could not tell us during the walk through. Any help would be appreciated.

Also, on another note, the brochure said the ceiling puck lights were led, however I had a bad bulb and when i opened the light they were halogen bulbs, not led. Anyone else have that issue?

My lights are not led but I did not expect them to be. Maybe the 2015's will be. Can't help with the switch, sorry.

Smile 30 REPR Light Switch

Thanks GaryWT but I think I have figured it out. The switch goes to the puck light on the ceiling just as you come in the door. Turns out the bulb was burned out and that is why nothing happened when you turned on the switch. Brand new trailer and already 2 halogen bulbs burned out. Talked to Keystone Customer Support about the LED lights and she said the brochure had a caveat on it stating not all Premiers come with LED lights. So I have ordered some.

First thing we did on ours was to switch to LEDs.

Smile 30 repr

Also put my knee right through the luan over the water pump housing while trying to make up the bed. On the lleft side of the bed, just in front of the laundry chute there is a boxed area that sticks out about 10 inches which makes it hard to make the bed. This boxed area is where the water lines come in and houses the water pump. The top is just luan with no support. Do not put you weight on it. I broke mine and replaced it with 3/8 birch plywood stained to match. Now I can put weight on it to make the bed.

That's a really good point, I think I've come close to doing that myself a few times. I like the idea of placing a thicker piece of wood there, good idea....

The first time I made the bed I did the same thing - put my knee on the area in front of the laundry chute. It crunched, and I thought sure I'd cracked it. Now I'm very careful NOT to do that. The idea of the thicker wood is a great idea. It's really hard to reach that far without the knee action.

The 2015 Premiers do indeed come with LED lighting for the overhead pucks. The dining, stove and bedroom reading lights are still halogen. Those will be my next project to replace

This might be a dumb question, but can you direct replace the halogen lamps with LED's? I'd love to have LED's never really thought about switching them out though..
