Searching for dealer

Hi all- my husband and I are very new to the RV world. I'm retiring this year, and we're looking for a dealer in the Northwest to buy the 400. In addition to a dealer, I'm doing research on things to know about upgrades or add ons. For example, do I need a better battery than they supply? What benefit would the solar panel give? Any comments welcome.

    Eastern Washington RnR Rv in Spokane. Tell them Dale Helman sent you and I will split $100 with you.
    ask for Mac Manna
    That goes for RnR in Lewiston as well.

    @Luigi The battery that comes in the new 400 is about as good as they get. Somewhere around a 240 amp hour AGM

    @Dalehelman, The one in Spokane, or the one in Liberty Lake? Both @Homebodyatheart, and Liz & I bought ours at the one in Liberty Lake.  @Luigi , Good folks, and good service department. RNR RV also has an outlet in Lewiston as well. Good luck, and let us know where you end up purchasing. Thanks.

    V, I guess my experience with the dealership I dealt with has left me a bit jaded. Glad you found a good one.

    I am so jealous of the 400's battery and solar setup (among other things). You will find it AWESOME! Welcome to the T@B family. Stick around here. I'll try not to derail any of your threads :innocent: or at least try to share the blame!!! hehe. Hope you have countless hours of wonderful camping trips!

    @JustJohn, Good dealerships DO exist. It's the bad ones that aren't hard to find. ;)

    I believe that dealer is also part of RnR in Spokane.so the same $100 deal goes.
