I just returned from an 8 day trip in the 195. I am so absolutely happy with almost everything about it. The refrigerator works awesome, it works as well as my home fridge. We had 90 degree temps, and I had to turn it down a little so the eggs didn't freeze. It tows great, the shower is great, the bed being north and south is awesome. My only and biggest complaint so far is, forest river built this damn thing so low. I definitely need to put a 4 inch lift. The dump tubes are really close to the ground, and today I had such a hard time putting my sewer flex pipe onto it, and it actually popped off when I was draining the black tank. I've never had that happen in 6 years of dumping, it was really embarrassing, not to mention totally effing gross. I shut it off right away, but it takes only a second to get a real mess.

I found that a oil filter wrench (the one that looks like a large pair of pliers) really helps with putting the sewer/gray water drain connections on and taking them off. With the arthritis in my hands, I don't have the grip strength I used to have. Harbor Freight has a pair for pretty cheap. The other usual sources would have them also.
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom,...
