00:12
okay so now I’m going to go through the
00:14
interior portion of this walkthrough
00:16
we’re still in the hawk front dinette so
00:19
you’ve got your window vinyl here and
00:23
you’ve got your heavy duty velcro so
00:26
just put it together like so and then
00:30
you’ve got this black line that runs
00:32
along your camper on both sides this is
00:34
a great guide for how high you can pack
00:36
your camper keeping in mind that when
00:38
the roof comes down this is as high as
00:40
you want to pack your camper
00:42
you’ve got your countertop here your
00:45
sink stove you’re gonna need a barbecue
00:49
lighter to let your stove and then
00:54
you’ve got your thermometer for your
00:57
furnace this is meant to turn so that
01:00
you can directionalize where the air is
01:01
blowing very easy to use to turn it on
01:05
just click it to the temperature that
01:07
you want it I’m gonna friend it feel it
01:09
turn on takes a couple of minutes and
01:12
it’s very easy to turn off just click it
01:15
over to the left and then you’ll feel
01:17
one more final click this switch here is
01:21
where you turn on your water heater you
01:24
don’t want to turn that on until you
01:25
know that you’ve got water in there this
01:28
is your solar controller very easy to
01:31
use you’re gonna want to refer to your
01:32
manual for instructions on how to use
01:34
that and how to read that you’ve got
01:37
your drover here got a knob on the
01:39
bottom of it and keep it from coming
01:40
open while you’re driving and you’re
01:42
gonna have to lift up and push down
01:45
quite a bit of storage here every camper
01:49
comes with a standard shore power plug
01:52
and a shower wand if you’ve got a water
01:56
system in the shower and every camper
02:00
comes with a vinyl goody bag of all the
02:03
manuals that are going to go with your
02:05
components and appliances so you can
02:07
refer to those for really in-depth
02:09
answers questions you may have behind
02:14
this door you’ve got your water pump
02:16
water filter and also you can access the
02:20
shutoff valves
02:22
for your water heater and your water
02:24
system where you can open it to purge
02:26
your water out of your camper for
02:27
winterization purposes on this panel
02:31
you’ve got a 110 resettable GFCI plug
02:35
this is only available if you’re using
02:38
Shore power if you connect it to shore
02:39
power or generator power source when you
02:43
don’t have that power source hooked up
02:45
then you don’t have access to that you
02:47
have you always have access to these USB
02:49
and 12-volt appliance hookups here now
02:53
any camper that has a water system it’s
02:57
going to come standard with this panel
02:58
here it’s got two buttons on it it’s got
03:01
a button that’s going to tell you how
03:02
much battery condition you have full
03:05
bars going across there
03:06
the second button says fresh and that’s
03:08
going to tell you how much water you
03:10
have in your water tank so push that
03:12
right now we don’t have any water in our
03:14
water tank so it’s the empty light is
03:16
illuminated and there’s one last thing I
03:18
want to tell you about on here is the
03:20
switch for the water pump this is where
03:21
you’re going to turn on your water pump
03:23
when you’re getting ready to pressurize
03:25
your water system very easy to use you
03:28
would just turn on your water system you
03:31
can actually hear the water pump turn on
03:33
and then you would also want to open up
03:36
your hot water on your faucet that would
03:39
allow the air to come out of your water
03:41
heater and water to fill in and you’re
03:45
going to experience some air water mix
03:48
coming out and then finally a full
03:51
stream of water it happens pretty quick
03:54
once that water is got a good stream of
03:58
water coming out you can leave your
04:00
water pump switch on for the length of
04:02
your camping trip your water pump may
04:05
turn on period periodically to restore
04:08
that pressure that’s been lost when you
04:09
use your water but leaving the switch on
04:11
will allow you to have pressure every
04:13
time you turn on your water faucet down
04:16
here behind this door
04:17
you’ve got your circuit breaker and your
04:21
fuse block and also next to it is your
04:23
master kill switch it’s silver when
04:27
you’re hooked up to shore power you’re
04:28
running off of this circuit panel here
04:30
and when you unplug off of shore power
04:33
your the converter which is actually low
04:35
behind this vent here tells the camper
04:39
we’re now running off of this 12-volt
04:40
system so just to release the cover off
04:43
of there you just click on the yellow
04:44
button there and it releases the cover
04:46
and then it reveals your fuse panel the
04:49
readouts for these are on this sticker
04:51
here so for the circuit breaker panel
04:53
it’s on the top first four and then for
04:56
the fuse panel you’ve got the bottom
04:58
readouts here now when you’re going to
05:02
winterize your camper you’re gonna want
05:04
to shut your camper down it’s as easy as
05:07
pushing in the kill switch push it in
05:08
push it off okay turn it off
05:15
behind this door you’ve got your
05:17
batteries okay and this door actually on
05:20
your key set you’ll have a round key and
05:23
that will lock this compartment behind
05:27
me here I’ve got the carbon monoxide
05:29
detector low where it needs to be and
05:32
then also above that is your switches
05:35
here we have just an interior floor
05:37
light and then what it’s illuminating is
05:41
also the door for the porthole for
05:44
accessing your turn buckles in the rear
05:47
this is the driver’s side that’s pretty
05:53
much it for the cabinet side of the
05:56
camper ok I want to take a quick minute
05:58
to just explain how cool these LED
06:01
lights are they’re touch so you just
06:04
touch on the power symbol and it powers
06:07
it off and what I love about these LED
06:10
lights is that if you hold your finger
06:12
on that power symbol it will dim the
06:14
light they have as a memory so when you
06:17
power it off and power it back on it
06:20
will still be the same lighting that you
06:22
left in okay now here is your smoke
06:25
alarm just like a house one it’s got a
06:27
nine volt battery in it and then I want
06:30
to take you to this fantastic vent it
06:33
has a three-way switch here forward
06:35
neutral reverse okay
06:38
and you’ve got your power settings here
06:41
zero being off three being the highest
06:43
let’s go ahead and power this on so I’m
06:46
going to go ahead and put it in reverse
06:49
now this fan won’t turn on unless the
06:51
vent is open a minimum of an inch okay
06:53
there we go
06:54
and also one very important thing I want
06:58
to point out to you is that if you
07:01
you’re going to want to wait for the fan
07:03
to stop turning before you switch its
07:05
direction what could happen is you could
07:08
pop this fuse that’s built into this and
07:12
protects the motor it’s a four amp
07:14
automotive glass fuse and it’s
07:16
accessible because it’s very possible
07:20
you switch directions and pop that fuse
07:23
okay so when you close it just fully
07:25
close it when it stops when the knob
07:27
stops turning it’s closed
07:29
okay very easy to use okay let’s
07:33
continue going on through this interior
07:35
walkthrough of the camper you’ve got
07:36
under this hinged lid a mirror and some
07:41
deep storage here more storage behind
07:45
these doors and here also you’ve got
07:50
quite a bit of storage under here enough
07:52
to have a porta potti down there if you
07:56
choose to have that you’ve got your
07:58
fridge on this side
08:00
and to turn on your fridge you’re just
08:04
going to turn the knob on the top
08:05
interior here turn it to seven if you’re
08:08
in the hottest conditions you’re gonna
08:10
want it on the highest setting which
08:11
would be seven to turn it off you’re
08:14
going to force it from one to zero okay
08:19
underneath your fridge you’ve got some
08:21
storage here and also you’ve got your
08:26
fire extinguisher and access to the rear
08:28
porthole on the passenger side right
08:30
through here that’s pretty much it for
08:33
this side okay so here we have the table
08:35
set up I’m going to go ahead and convert
08:37
the seating area into a sleeping area
08:39
now I’m gonna remove the table I’m going
08:41
to loosen the knob under the tabletop
08:43
release that set it aside we’ll need
08:46
that in just a minute I’ll turn that
08:49
knob to release the lower half of the
08:52
table
08:55
these pillows out of the way set the
09:01
tabletop upside down right and place up
09:06
to the bumpers I must see to put the
09:09
pillows in place now the one against the
09:12
window with the hardback I’m gonna lay
09:14
flat and then I’m going to slide it
09:17
under and then I’m gonna pivot these
09:20
pieces out of the way here just like so
09:24
continuing through here and we’ll leave
09:26
this one by the window down slide it
09:31
underneath pivot these out of the way
09:33
put my last pillow in place here you can
09:37
see just how easy it is to set up this
09:39
seating area into a sleeping area there
09:47
you have it okay so the front dinette on
09:50
a hawk has tons of storage on underneath
09:52
both seats so to access that you’re
09:55
gonna remove the pillows and then you’ve
09:58
got access here and then you’ve got a
10:01
cover for the porthole this is where you
10:05
would access your front turnbuckle on
10:06
the driver’s side you can see that the
10:08
grounds all terminate here and you’ve
10:11
got your blue sea’ battery separator
10:14
also you’ve got tubes that run from your
10:17
water fill to your water tank which is
10:20
right underneath this compartment but
10:22
you do have some shallow storage here
10:24
also you’ve got more storage right here
10:29
underfoot
10:33
so this pillow here you’ve got your
10:41
emergency exit they’re very easy to use
10:44
just undo the latches this window is
10:47
hinged and then you can also use it as a
10:49
weight regular window just like that and
10:52
screen slides up out of the way as well
10:55
and you’ve got two pillows that go here
10:59
the one that goes against the window it
11:02
has a hard back okay that’s pretty much
11:08
it – what’s going on under the seats in
11:11
a front dinette okay so here we have the
11:14
bed already pulled out and setup we’ve
11:17
got our additional pillows in I have the
11:19
bed board slid out to the bumpers and to
11:22
take down it’s very easy you’re just
11:24
going to remove your pillows put them to
11:26
the side and then you’re gonna slide in
11:29
your bed board till it stops just like
11:33
that okay well that pretty much
11:36
