New Owner Advice

My wife and I are newbies. Scheduled to pick up our new 27' FC FB at the end of September, we don't know what we don't know! I am interested in learning about which accessories if any, are very important to have the dealer add at delivery so they get properly integrated into the systems of the trailer. We realize there will be many opinions and personal preference about this but we are willing to listen to any thoughts and suggestions. For example, a stabilizing hitch is non negotiable and tire pressure monitors seem like a no brainer but the Instant Hot Water heater might not be. What about the standard batteries or converter systems? Every brand has their weak points and we realize that so we just want to be as prepared as possible!

Thanks in advance for the help.

Go with AGM batteries. Our regular gas heater is fine for our water heating needs. Definitely get multistage converter

I too was a newbie last year when I purchased my first trailer ever. If you are ever bored you can visit my blog and read up on our adventures (or more mundane stuff).

Good luck and welcome!
