Default Hello Everyone

My wife and I recently (3weeks) purchased a 2016 PW Lexor. We downsized from a GT335 class A. We are taking it on our first trip this weekend to visit family. Thats one of the many reasons we downsized. We both come from large families and a Class B would allow us to visit more frequently. Our kids are in the military, so we can follow (haunt) them too.
We have been RVing for about 4 yrs now and love it.

Welcome! It must be a big change going from a A to a B, but I hope you enjoy it.

Yes, welcome

Lithium batteries were an option on the 2016 models. If you got that you'll have to let us know if it works well for you. Also, I'm curious to know if the on demand hot water works well. Maybe you can give us an update when you had a chance to use it all.

Yeah, I am curious about the on demand hot water as well. We have only used it once and I must admit I was very surprised how quickly the water got hot. Had dial set at midway. I am a little worried we will go through alot of LP using it. I liked having elec/lp in our other rigs. Nice to use campground elec when needed.

We do have 2 lith batt and the standard 95w solar panel. I like the solar charger panel, state of charge, amps from panel to batt, and current batt volt. We plan on doing alot of drycamping, so I hope it works out.

I will continue to post updates if interested. So far:

Furnace works GREAT and is much quieter than I thought it would be.
LED lights and multiplex panel are GREAT
Bed is pretty comfortable. We will see how it breaks in.
Water pump is not loud when using kitchen sink or toilet, HOWEVER, it is very loud when using the bathroom sink. Seems to be struggling. I went to clean the aerator,, SURPRISE, its all one piece molded plastic faucet. Cant remove aerator. Toilet is nice. We prefer ceramic toilets. Always upgraded our previous rigs. Glad this one already has it.
Swivel seats - NICE
Awning - Nice - BUT I am concerned how it will hold up. Seems a little fragile.
LOVE DRIVING IT and being able to park ANYWHERE - big change from the class A.
LOVE the gas milage. I will report on that more as we use it. We bought the rig with 38mi, and have 350 on it now...getting it home.

Anyway,, thanks for the kind welcome.
Tim

I thought that PW did not have swivel front seats. Is it just the passenger seat that swivels?

Cruise
Both seats swivel. That was a MUST HAVE for us. Couldnt imagine a class b without having another place to sit. The Drivers side swivels, but is useless for the most part given the space restrictions. The Passenger side swivels nicely. Its a far drop to floor when swiveled 180 deg. At 90 deg, your feet rest on the front cab floor nicely. We have already purchased a lapdesk and it will be a perfect place to use computer while the other is on the couch napping/watching tv,etc.
TIP - there are two release latches on the front of the seat near base. One releases the backrest and the other releases the swivel. Dealer was unaware and we couldnt figure it out. Had to call PW. They instructed us on where on how to use it. You have to kinda look for them.

Thanks Tim,

It's great that you are enjoying your new rig! I hope that the lithium work well for you, too

Nice change if PW has it. Their website says NO to the swivel; maybe needs updating.

So maybe the Lexor gets swivel seats and the Ascent (MB 2500) loses them. Al there other models are based on MB 3500s and MB says swivel seats will be available on 3500s.
