Smile 2014 3895 Delivered

We traded the 2013 3950 in on Friday for the new 3895. Moving stuff from one RV to another is a hot hard job. However we couldn't be more happy with our decision. The new Epic III package is amazing. The whole unit is much better fit and finish as well as upgraded from our 2013 Epic package. The sofa and theater seats are all leather not fabric like our 3950 was. The Home theater Sony TV , Blu Ray DVD, Rockford Fosgate subwoofer and Sony sound bar is fantastic. The Upgraded Kenwood touch screen stereo with the subwoofer in the garage is another huge upgrade. It has Bluetooth so I can play my iPhone iTunes library through the stem without hooking anything up! The new leveling system is much better and of course we like the floor plan better. Same Schwintek slides which make me very nervous. So far they are working well. One slide was out of sink but by the time the service guy came on the gold cart I already had it re-syned. On the shakedown cruise we only had two defects:
1. Water pump is working but no water flow from faucets. City water is ok.
2. Rear taillight not working. Turn signal and brake lights on that one are ok but the center tail light led is dead.

Congrats on the new rig... got a favor to ask.

When you get time, could you find and post the model number of that Sony audio-head unit here on the board? I'm thinking about replacing that Samsung unit in my rig with one. It should be listed on the owner's booklet that came with your paperwork... or if not, I know that it'll be listed either on the front or back of the unit itself.

Thanks...

Thanks everyone. I did find one other strange change from the 2013. On my old unit when I cut the master battery switch for storage everything went off. On the new 2014 there is still power to the leveling jacks and the light in the utility bay! But the rest of the unit is dead. I first thought my master battery cutoff switch was defective because I had it to "off" and my wife turned on the light in the utility bay and it came on. And when I activated the leveling panel it had power as well. But I went inside sure enough everything was dead, no power. I wonder if this is a wiring mistake or on purpose? I will call Dutchmen tomorrow.

Excellent news, and congrats on the new unit. I looked hard at those 2014 models, and really wanted one, but the wife played her trump card and we've got the 2013. Anyway, you've got a great setup there. Isn't it nice to have something great?

Congrats! I took delivery of our 3895 on March 30th and had the same tail light issue. It turns out that the crimp connect was not fully crimped down on the wire. A quick assist with a pliers fixed it. Just pull out the assembly and look at the the connections.
