RE: Bunk fan for a hot sleeper?

I'm a hot sleeper. At home, I use a ceiling fan when I sleep at night - summer or winter. I'm used to the air flow, and it's hard for me to sleep without it (hotel room, etc.). We have a 2018 Jayco X23E on order. I'm assuming it has the 12V jacks (1/8" phono) by each bunk. What's a good fan solution for someone who likes airflow? These little bunk fans seem to be the standard solution: Lumitronics Combination Interior 12V Reading Light with 2 Speed Fan for RVs, Trailers, Campers, 5th Wheels Our 2007 Jayco 232 came with those fans for every bunk and worked well. You can also unzip too. The fans add some white noise to help with loud neighbours but it's hard to tell from the picture how effective they really are.

RE: Coachman Freedom Express 287BHDS

We've got a Freedom Express and have had only a few minor issues. The outdoor kitchen plumbing came loose, 1 LED light stopped working and the water pump leaked. Ours didn't come with a winterizing kit, and the water pump could hardly be reached under the sink. So we had a small door installed, the pump moved and replace, and the winterizing kit installed

RE: dry camping

Thanks for all the replies. I've never noticed a defrost switch on the fridge. I've looked. Once i get the cover off the trailer i will check the wfco model. I do want to pick up a DC clamp-on ammeter. Still not sure if the old grp 27 is good. It's been sitting in the garage idle for a couple years. I have put the stand alone charger on it a few times. If it is good, i would take it as a back-up and not parallel it. I may just take it as a return for the core charge and pick up a 2nd grp 31

RE: dry camping

Last year we dry camped for 3 days/nights. We have a champion 2000W inverter generator, and a group 31 battery, and i assume a WFCO converter. We handled that ok. I did figure out that the charging relay on the F150 to the 7 pin was plugged into the wrong port so i had never been charging while driving. this year we will be dry camping for a week. Electrical use will be the propane detector, led lights, radio, water pump, defrost on the fridge. We don't have an inverter. My question, do you think running the generator for a 2-3 hours a day will be enough? or am i going to kill my group 31? I've been thinking of getting a 2nd grp 31, or just take along my 10 year old grp 27. If i upgrade charging, should i just get the progressive dynamics? But we would only dry camp for no longer than a week once per summer. Or i could get a 20 amp battery charger that i could run off the gennie at the same time and keep the wfco. I currently have a 10amp. Just trying to get the best bang for the buck. Here is a link to a new charger 25 amp charger

RE: dry camping

Just trying to get the best bang for the buck. Although forum pundits will no doubt be quite willing to spend your $$$ with all sorts of recommendations clearly your "best bang for the buck" is to just use what you already have, especially since you already have a spare G27 you can drag along with you as well for back up. Keep in mind also that as an American based forum most recommendations will be based on US pricing from those who don't understand just how expensive ALL this stuff is up here in Canada. :R Does Canadian Tire load test batteries? Not sure how to determine if my old Grp 27 is actually up to the task.

RE: 6V batteries in Ontario

last year at Costco Edmonton their brand of 6v golf cart battery were $139/each. Two camping buddies installed 4x in each of their units and have been happy with them for a season. For sure cheaper then the Trojan T105 that I run....so a viable alternative. Buy early, they only bring in so many. Daryll A little bit of drive considering i asked about the Hamilton area, lol

6V batteries in Ontario

We are looking at camping at a non-electric site for a week this summer. We do have a Group 31 battery and a Champion 2000W inverter generator. But i am considering upgrading to 2-6Volts. Where is the best place to buy 6V batteries in the greater Hamilton area?

RE: Killarney PP

Thanks, so buyer beware on this one. I'll assume that this is a busy PP and the book 5 months in advance, to the minute, is the rule to get a site there.

Killarney PP

I'm thinking that we should head up to Killarney PP next summer. But when I do a site search there is only about 6 sites rated for a 25ft trailer. Our's is 28' bumper to hitch. Anyone been to Killarney in anything this size? Are the smaller sites actually large enough for a mid-size TT?

crossing border with food

Heading to the states for a couple weeks and will be crossing at Niagara Falls. Not sure which crossing yet, but will pick the one with the shortest wait. What food can we take? At this point we are thinking that we will NOT take any meat, fruit, or veggies. But are there currently any restrictions?
