RE: Slide is leaking

While I have never had a camper with a slide out, my neighbor does and said he was told by the dealer rep on his walk through to slightly tilt the camper downward on the slide out side and this will allow water to run off the side of the camper and keep water seepage into the camper at a minimum. Neighbor said he has had no leaks in five years. Yearly maintenance on the slide out would be must. Good Luck.

RE: What Wheel Chock Do you prefer. X Chock?

Been using the orange colored plastic chocks and levelers for over 20 years. Cheap and work just fine.

RE: Question for hybrid owners

That would also be my guess. A plug in for a Fan/Light Combo that usually comes with pop ups.

RE: Jayco Hybrid Frame Failure

It's sad to hear stories about events that happen to people and their campers and it's even worse when the manufacture fails to help when a serious event occurs. I have had 3 Jaycos and so far have had no major issues. I feel strongly that a good dealer goes a long way in providing good customer service. The local Jayco dealer I have dealt with bends over backwards to provide excellent customer service. Not being mean spirited, but in the service department I use, I see a big sign saying to be sure your camper is winterized before service during colder months because units sit outside before and after service.

RE: Unknown odor - what is it? where is it?

I had a similar problem several years ago and a friend said to pull out the furnace and check there. Sure enough, one dead decaying mouse. Assume it crawled into furnace area over the winter and died. Something to check if you already haven't.

RE: Help on New Models

My Jayco X18D is a 3 bunk and has an unloaded weight of 3715 lbs and a loaded weight of 4400 lbs. Giving 685 lbs cargo. With just the wife and I we usually carry about 500 lbs. depending on how long we are out. Have had 3 Jaycos in the past and have been very happy with them. Newer campers have made many improvements regarding leaks at bunk ends but regular maintenance is a must. Good Luck in your search.

RE: Buying used hybrid

There are websites and youtube videos that you can search the web for about buying used campers and what to look for. The best thing to know is to let your nose do the work. If a camper smells funny, walk away. If all you smell is deodorizer of some kind,walk away. Someone is trying to cover up something. Good Luck in your search.

RE: 12V Replacement Battery Suggestions

Always have used Interstate Batteries with no problems. As midnightsadie said, keep em clean and keep em charged.

RE: Camper Bedding Question from newbie

Bought our sheets at Wal-Mart. Fits ok. Used to use straps but were just a hassle when folding up mattress for traveling. Just use sheet on mattress and then use either sleeping bag, blankets or cover sheet. Congrats on the new camper and have fun, that's what it's all about.

RE: New Trailer

Congrats on the new camper. DW and I have had our X18D for two years now and Love It! Have had no issues with it. Recommend Pop Up Gizmos on the bunk ends, really does make a difference inside no matter what time of the year it is. We also found out that a WDH/anti sway bars do help a lot. We bought the Equalizer 4 point WDH and I am very happy with it. Again, congrats on the new camper.

RE: Jayco Hybrid Frame Failure

First off, I am glad to hear no one was injured and you and your family are safe. In all my 40+ years of trailer towing, I have never heard of, or seen such a failure happening so I would have to say it was an abnormal failure. Please keep everyone informed when you find out the exact cause. Once again, I am glad no one was injured.

RE: Proper portable generator to run a Jayco X17Z?

IMHO____ The Honda 2000 Watt Generator is the very Best Bang for the Buck. Have had my 2, 2000 watt Hondas since 2004 and I am a very Happy Camper with them. When I bought these two, I paid $800.00 each, now they run around a $1000.00 Very quite, very dependable, easy to start. If you want to run a Honda at higher altitudes, you have to have the carb adjusted to run at the higher altitudes.

RE: Which should I buy?

In most instances, used campers of any kind are usually a nightmare of someone else's problems. You can do a search of the web about buying used campers and get an awful lot of info. One thing you have already that is a must in a search of a used camper, is your nose. If it smells musty, damp and has odd odors, walk away. There is probably water damage. Check every corner, open every door and look for stains or signs of repair to walls or floor or to cabinets. Walk around camper testing your weight on the floor looking for soft spots. Check around windows for signs of water entrance and damage. Check the bathroom floor for water damage. Get up on the roof of the camper and check the caulking, check the roof for soft spots, be careful up there, most roofs don't hold weight well. Check the tires for wear, wheel bearings are hard to look at but it is one of those things you hope is ok. Do your homework and do not buy the first thing you see. Good used campers can be costly in price and repairs if you get a bad one. It may be to your advantage to check the discount RV places, you may very well get a discounted camper at about the price of a used camper. There are many things to look at when buying new or used so do your homework before you pay for a camper. Good Luck

RE: Typical battery life

I had one battery that lasted 8 years, had another that lasted 6 months, plates shorted out, had another that actually froze and split open. One I have now is going on 3 years. All the same brand. Some batteries last longer than others. Keep it charged, filled with distilled water, terminals clean and free of corrosion and it will last as long as it lasts.

RE: Popout rip in vinyl

Jayco has a 5 year Limited Warranty on their tent ends. Would suggest you contact a Jayco dealer or call customer service for details. I do not know if the warranty is for the original owner or for the used buyer. Might be worth a phone call.

RE: Gutter extensions

You can also use a tennis ball. Cut a slit in the ball and slide in to the gutter extension. Use caution when ever you add or remove your cover, they seem to snag on anything and everything.
