Jeannine111, Glad you checked out the Viva-Trend group. Be patient, with a little practice you'll get a "feel" for the yahoo format. I swing back and forth
frequently from this site to the other to keep up.
You mentioned leveling your rig. Again much discussed on the "other" site. I learned that leveling blocks, ramps, and other neat stuff are available on
amazon.com. In their automotive/ recreational vehicle section. By the way another place to shop for RV goodies , water hose, filters, etc, is WalMart.
Both on line and in their stores. A lot of stuff such as RV toilet tissue, riddex and other products for the toilet tank, various adapters for hoses, surge protecters,etc.
With regard to the salesmans comment at camping world. Why not post that as a question to the Viva-Trend group? I've no idea where that comes from. Like any other high end/ high tech product, the Viva-Trend line has had initial issues coming on line. The Ram/Promaster chassis has had several recalls to adress minor problems, some folks have experienced problems with the loft bed in the coach, but dealing with winnebago has worked most of these out. The leader of the Viva-Trend group has had his bed mechanism replaced with a 2016 unit by the factory. All this is documented in the posts on the site. That said the vast majority of us have had faithfull service with our rig's. Including me with a 23L unit. I think the Trend is a great product and think you'll feel the same after you become familier with it.

Great response, and thank you. I'm going to Yahoo to see what the opinions are of Camping World (at least the one in my location) giving up on the Trend

Changed from a Minnie Winnie to a Trend. Just how do I check the oil in the generator on the Trend?

And I think I'm gonna hear the words "crawl under."

I put my rear wheels on leveling blocks and crawl under the coach. There is plenty of room. There is a screw at the bottom of the access panel. Just use a standard screwdriver and loosen the screw. The access panel comes off, and the oil dipstick is inside on the left side. At first, I didn't like where the generator was, but I'm OK with it now. It is even easy to change oil, but you have to raise the rear wheels a bit for easy access. Hope this helps. Komac

Thanks for the info! I just posted a question re: where the generator was located. When I did a search for the topic, nothing came up. I'm new to the site and still trying to figure it out.
