      Well heck. My WC890 is sitting up at the factory because they ran out of the 12k AC units. Hopefully I’ll find out more on this this week. Not sure who makes them, but I can thank Covid for this I’m told…

      If it was me I would just take delivery now and have an aftermarket Polar Cub Mach-8 9,200 BTU model installed. Slightly smaller which allows you to operate it using a standard Honda EU2000i/EU2200i genny. That’s what I had on my old Wolf Creek and it worked great.

        That unit does look very small up there Mike. I had the choice of a 9k and an 11k, not 12. I went with the larger one only because it was $70 less. I have been assured the onboard 2500 Onan will run the 11k and the microwave so we will see.

        You probably saved money doing it this way too I’d wager…

      Do you have the Mach 8 on the Roadrunner as well?

      Well now there is another delay…or maybe this is a snowball kind of thing…my camper missed the origional scheduled ship date due to AC unit shortage. Now that the camper is complete, we are waiting on the transporter company to fill out his load so he won’t have a partially loaded truck. I do get that part, I was in trucking for many years.

      But…without being there I am just going by my salesman’s word on this. Anyway my camper will now ship on the 29th, and the dealer wants a week to prep it.

      Does this sound like a common occurrence to y’all?

      Congrats on your new toy! I am on my second Northwood TC.

      A week for dealer prep is common. It’s great the dealer wants to go thru their prep to make sure the TC is ready for final delivery to their customer.

      That said, you should have your own check list of everything to check inside/outside top to bottom and front to back before taking delivery. Don’t rely on what Northwood or your dealer have done to this point. Schedule a time early in the morning to check your new TC so you have plenty of time to complete your checklist and hopefully address any minor issues you might find. Be prepared to leave it at the dealer if work needs to be done before taking it home. Don’t rush this process. Just my two cents from my own experience and from what I have read about other folks getting new RVs.

      Thanks Stan. The plan is to get to the dealership in the early afternoon, finalize the deal and load the camper and get the lowdown on everything. I will then spend the night at the dealer’s RV park. Hope this gives me time to really check everything, and get with the service dept in case they missed anything.

      I am in central California and the dealer is in central Oregon so I will have a bit of a road trip, but it is worth it to avoid the California sales tax.
