Default New 2204T owner

Hi, my name is Larry and we just purchased our 2204T this weekend. Love it coming from a 17 yr old Coleman Bayside Elite we bought new; time to put her down. The Hi Lo is great as we picked it up 450 miles from home and had an opportunity to use it from the very first. Spent the weekend getting to know each other in Manistee National Forrest, MI. Tows like a dream, even in heavy truck traffic. Immediately planning on changing out interior to LEDs for lighting and tail lights then recaulking and sealing roof. Rained enough to keep us inside enjoying our Wisconsin brats and a beer and celebrating a dry interior in a halacious Midwest storm.

Default Welcome to the forum.

We have a great informative video series posted on how to operate the HiLo. You have joined a great big friendly group of HiLo owners. I would recomend Lexel caulk for any sealing. It sells for about $8.00 a tube at ACE hardware or on line. Glad to hear you had a great maiden voyage.

RedBaron, Welcome to the forum! I believe your world of camping will change with a Hi Lo. I also changed over to LEDs. Big difference, both inside and out. I changed my brake and turns signals to LEDs, but they still looked dim and slow to me. So I turned to Amazon and found these: "Pair 17" red LED sealed trailer stop, tail and turn bar", about $26. I mounted them Vertically and they truly made all the difference. Inside I used "WARM" LEDS. Best of luck!

Welcome. I was camped in that same storm up by Bayfield, Wi. Noisy, isn't it??

Looks like a very nice unit. With two batteries and full tanks you can boon dock forever. I recommend Pictured Rocks Lake shore in September- October. Enjoy!

Nice camper! I have the same one (although mine has an upper bunk)and really dig it!

I'm just curious, what does upgrading the outside lights to LED benefit?

Brighter lighting, less drain on the battery, longer life and less heat generated.

Cool, I didn't realize that the outside lights were draining on the rv batteries too. I've upgraded the inside to led's but it sounds like it might be beneficial to do the outside too.

Congratulations on your purchase. We also have a 22 footer we bought last year. We've taken her on two camping trips so far. The kids are loving it.
