Congratulations! The Simplicity SRT is a nice, straight forward RV. I just looked at a 2018 on Monday and am awaiting pricing on a 2019. Be sure to let us know how it goes.

Well, I drove it home. It handled like any big van would. I shut down all switches and hope to spend some time in it over the weekend. I do not have a way to plug it in so I hope that as I drive the underhood generator will charge the coach battery. First RV of any kind so lots of learning to do.

I got 17.4 mpg (displayed) so far will see when I fill up and calculate it manually. Prbly will need to fill in fresh water, the propane tank and so on.
I am pretty occupied until the end of July but will do extensive overnight testing in August.

Can't you find a way to plug into a 15a standard household outlet? They are required by most building codes to be installed on the outside of single family homes. All you need is a 30a to 15a plug converter and maybe another extension cord.

I have those outlets as I plugged my Leaf in those until I installed a true car charger with a 40A breaker.

The cable I got (with the unit) it has the 240 plug. House was built 2 years ago so it is easy to add another 240 but if I would find a cable to plug into a 120 plug and could plug into the RV on another side I would do it in a heartbeat.

I thought a Simplicity plugged into a 120V 30A service. All you need is this adapter because charging only needs to take 15A. You might not be able to run your air conditioner is about all.

New question . I tried the cooktop burners but it did not seem to light up. The tank seems to be full , the water heater comes on so I guess there is propane coming into the system.

The sparks I can see but the burners never ignite . Is there a second valve for the burners besides the main shut-off valve ?

I'm not sure if you are on Facebook, but there is a RT Zion and Simplicity Group. It's a good resource for help and ideas.
