Hello all! We have gained some great knowledge from your posts here thank you! I will share our little background story with you. 😃 We started years ago with a trailer this fun size... then a few trailers later grew to a 35ft 5th wheel with 3 slides and a dually ...so many wonderful trips... but decided it was time to give it a rest... you know.. jobs.. lives get busy... family illness... so we gave it a rest.. sold all...and yes we rested ...and then some time passed and then on a cold day in January 2017 we took a drive and found this little beauty.... and well ... she's ours now... haven't taken her officially out camping yet ... waiting for the weather to break... but recently enjoyed some driveway time decorating and listening to some music ... watched a bit of tv ..it will be interesting to see how the black tank/gry tank is hooked up as I have read some interesting things here in regards to that subject 😁I will attempt to post some pics for those of you interested to see.

We just did our 1 day shakedown cruise in our new 199fks. Went great! Only ran into a few issues. They left out the fresh water tank drain plug, and my antenna need repair. Pretty minor, really. Hope you enjoy yours as much as we do! Its just right for a couple, with room enough to not trample each other.

I noticed that there is no stove vent in these models.  How do you cook with no exhaust?

Its right by the window, perhaps that covers the requirement?

We love ours! Except I do wish the kitchen sink didn't drain into black tank. We haven't dry camped in it. I would for a 2 nighter, but nothing less. I don't want to have to move the rig once I set up our mat and chairs etc. the cooking by the door handles the steam problem also there is a window right next to it. I have set off the smoke alarm with bacon! I cook it outside now on the griddle I got for our BBQ. Have fun!

I thought they fixed the issue of the kitchen sink draining into the black tank.  What year is your retro 199FKS?

The standard ionization type smoke detector is easily tripped during normal cooking. I replaced ours with a photo-electric one.

mine has a separate grey for the two sinks, so yes, that's fixed.

Be really careful about the front door and awning clearance. The door strut needs to be about 1" shorter. The awning support rubs the door and if you are unlucky like I was the arm actually hooked the door and bent the awning support!!
