RE: Full Hookup Issues

The Jayco hybrids don't use leaf spring suspension, rather the torsion axle. So doing an axle flip is not an option. The easiest solution would be to level the trailer with taller blocks so the entire hybrid is higher. This might mean you will need to use a folding step to make it easier to get in and out. So far, I have not had issues with my '06 dumping, but I have had to walk the hose on a few occasions.

RE: are hybrid trailers cold in winter?

Again, I will mention that it depends on what you think is cold. We try and go out for 1 last weekend in October before I need to winterize. Nights could be about 3-4 C, 35-38F with the potential for frost. I run 2 electric heaters and set the furnace at about 65F. The furnace might cycle a few times. Of course to keep condensation manageable, we crack some windows and leave the tent ends unzipped a little. Use PUGS and Reflectix in the tent ends. When we go to bed, the sleeping bag does feel cold, but it warms up quick. We use a queen size 10C rated sleeping bag. Maybe a mohair blanket on top. Usually by morning I feel hot as the hybrid doesn't really get that cold. Suggest putting some carpet on the floor to keep your feet from feeling the cold from underneath. Then again, my son is in Scouts and they have winter camped to -10C in a tent. Nice mummy bag and sleeping on a thermarest ground pad, sleeping toque and warm pj's and all is good. Just need the right equipment for the right job.

RE: Turning radius question

Looking at the pictures, I don't think this turn is that much tighter than any campground I've been in

delaminated ceiling

We have an '07 Jayco that we have owned since new. Last winter we had some water damage to the ceiling. As soon as I noticed I took it to the local RV guy who said the AC was a little loose and they snugged it down a bit. I have not seen anymore signs of water infiltration, but a 1'x2' section of the ceiling has had the vinyl covering delaminate from the wood causing a bubble. Any tips for regluing the vinyl back on to get rid of the bubble?

RE: Interior Repair - '07 Jayco 23B Rear Bunk

My rear bunk on our 232, seemed to leak fairly frequently. Dealer did nothing to try and fix it. I added a second seal to the edge of the bunk door and it has not leaked since.

RE: Can this weight be right?

No, the numbers weren't flipped but I just got back from the re weigh. Steer 2600 Drives 3000 (6600- 2600) Trailer 5400 12,000 total. Still don't know how you got 3000 for the drives. 6600-2600=4000 not 3000.

RE: Bruce Peninsula Area

When we go to the Bruce Peninsula, we like to stay at Summer House Park, on Miller Lake. Maybe 20 minutes from Tobermorey. They have a small beach, boat rentals, etc. And most of the sites are in the woods. Totally recommend this park.

RE: 2004-2006 F150 Question

I have had to do some of the major mechanical things to my '06 Dreaded manifold leak, solenoids for the variable valve phasers, 4 broken spark plugs while changing them at 100,000km, and rebuilding the limited slip clutch pack Rear brakes were done at 100,000km, front brakes at 160,000km Tires changed at 85000km, and 200,000km Battery replaced at 200,000km Rear shocks at 170,000km I guess doing 80% highway helps with increasing some lifespan on some things.

RE: All year round tires with winter approval

I had Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors on my 2x F-150 and thought they were pretty good. Only rated for 80,000km but I was able to get 115,000 out of them and had not got to the wear bars. I put regular Goodyear Wranglers on the truck this year before the snow hit as my Goodyear dealer told me that the Silent Armors were being discontinued.
