RE: St Augustine Campgrounds

We are at here right now and are staying at the Bryn Mawr Ocean Resort. We reserved spot 225 so that it wuld back up to the ocean. I wish it was a clear view of the ocean (you can see it), however there is a sand dune that runs the barrier between the campground and the ocean. They do have 4 walkways leading down to the ocean. Some of the things I really like about the place is that it is full hookups, nice anemities (2 pools, gated, laudry, wifi...etc). The one downside is the lack of trees. No matter where youo park, your rig is full sun meaning tat the A/C is running non stop to keep up. You may not have that problem if you come in Nov. We have driven by some of the others and none of them look any better than Bryn Mawr Ocean Resort. We paid $114 per night to stay here. There may be cheaper options out there (such as the state park), but we booked at the last minute and wanted "on the beach" from our TT. THey boost that they are the only place with that as an option.

RE: Jayco and travel trailer quality

We just sold our first TT to upgrade to a new TT. Our first was a Jayco and it was 2007 model. We loved it and did not have any major issues out of the trailer. Over time, we did have to do some work on it, but I consider everything to be routine. We had to have the roof re-sealed, replace outside plastic pieces that weakened due to the sun and wear and we did have some decals start to peal off. We never had any issues with the actual workings of the trailer. The A/C always blew cold, the fridge always worked as it should and the inside decor still looks like the day it was bought new. My personal opinion is that Jayco puts out as good a product as a person might want. I think a lot depends on how well the owner maintains the TT.

RE: Parking while on a cruise

Thanks for all the advice. I followed up on the camprground idea and found one that will let me store it with them for a flat rate for the week.

Parking while on a cruise

THe family and I are going on a disney cruise this summer. We were thinking about taking the TT and having an extended vacation on the way down there and back. I am wondering, does anyone have any suggestions as to where to park the TT while we are on the cruise? I cannot find anything on the Port Canaveral Parking that it allows for TT to be parked there while on a cruise.

RE: Deep Cycle Battery Question

Jorge That is Not the useful rating They is the total capacity until dead 150 minutes at 25 amps until dead That's 62 amp hrs, kinda on the small side for RV use, but if it serves you well, then maybe that is all you need 50 percent use then recharge is 31 amp hrs Granted I'm basing this on the number you supplied, a different number will give different results I placed it on a small camper and so far it seems to be doing the trick. When the camper is in use, it is usually hooked up to shore power. I figure the battery was for turning the lights on for a bit if needed and to make sure the emergency braking system works when towing. I wouldn't think you would need a much bigger battery unless you are dry docking somewhere without power, however I could be wrong.

RE: Deep Cycle Battery Question

I just bought an AGM Deep Cycle from Sam's Club and so far it has done a pretty good job. It says it is rated for a little over 2 hours (150 minutes) of continual use. I think I gave just under $100 for it and if anything goes wrongs with it, I can warranty the battery at any Sam's Club or Wal Mart. I figure those things are everywhere, so I am pretty well covered.

RE: Water heater help

Could it be a weak/short in the circuit or possible weak heating element? Those would probably be my first 2 items to check.

RE: Can't use outside speakers without inside being on help

I have a 2017 Outback (made by Keystone). We may have the same media/radio unit. If we do, it will look like 3 buttons at the top (that turn blue when on). Those control the zones for the radio/speakers. Zone 1 is inside living area, zone 2 is bedrooms and zone 3 is outside. By pressing those buttons, I am able to turn zones on and off. I hope this helps.

RE: Replacing Wall Sections

Dutchman, I love the chalkboard paint idea. I had been looking at the and trying to decide between that or maybe something to put there to mount shoes on for drying.

RE: Replacing Wall Sections

Donn, I will have to look and measure again, but I do not think that 1/4 plywood will work. I believe that it would be to thick and cause a lip/seam where it meets the other panel. I figure I could use some trim to make them blend, but I am afraid the raise would still be noticeable. It is located to the left of the door along the floor when you enter and raise up o be about knee height (maybe 2 ft). I was trying to think of something creative to do there if I was unable to match it. I figure I could buy some regular paneling from the depot and paint it, but I was afraid it would not look as nice as it originally did.

Replacing Wall Sections

Has anyone ever had to replace a section of the paneling/wall in their camper? Last year we had some moisture cause the paneling to begin to bubble and had to cut out part of it. It's not a large section, but it needs to be replaced in order to look nice again. Where have you been able to order paneling that will match or what other creative ideas have you had?

RE: Fridge in a slide, fan noise

Our Outback has the same setup and does the same thing. I assumed it was the cooling fan as well.

RE: Tank Oder

Thank you for all the advice. This is what I have learned. I was mistaken in thinking that the tanks were like a septic system....nope, just a holding spot. I also learned that the smell was from not dumping weekly t every week and a half....since it just sits there, it brews. I also have learned that the chemicals are for helping with smells for up to 2 weeks at a time...MAX. And I have learned how to flush my tanks! I drained everything last night and flushed out the tank about 3 times and then set it back up with fresh chemical. That took care of all the smells! It now will be on schedule to dump every week as long as we are living in it. Thank you for all the advice and educating me on how the tanks work and how to care for them!

RE: TV wiring issues

The wireless Genie is by far the easiest, however it will come with an additional monthly charge. If you trailer is wired already for coaxle, you could by an HDMI splicer that has a coaxle splicer on one side it it (may be a booster). You could then tie that back into the trailer hook up that distributes the signal to all areas again. We did the wireless genie and it works like a charm. I think it costs us an extra $5 per month.

RE: Tank Oder

Dutchman, no, we have kept the black valve and grey valves closed. We have only needed to dump it 1 times in the past 2 months and then it said it was only half full. I thought the chemicals and vent were suppose to control odors? It should just be liquid waaste with water in the tanks.

Tank Oder

I need some advice. We purchased a new travel trailer in Dec 2016. We bought this trailer to live in as our home is being remodeled. We are using the black and grey tanks in the trailer. After about 2 months of living in the trailer, we have noticed a smell coming from the bathroom area, especially when flushing the toilet. I have been treating the tanks in the new camper just as I did in our old camper and I never noticed a smell in the old one. I have told my family that they are allowed to use the toilet in the trailer for #1 (small business) but that they needed to go in the house for #2 (big business). Anyone have any ideas what I may be doing wrong? The tanks are not full. I have dumped the black and grey tanks once, and I used the grey to flush as usual. I read about a cyclone vent that you place on top of the camper exhaust pipe, but I am wondering if it is something simple that I am overlooking. Thank you for any advice.

RE: Orlando Bound

Thank you for all the advice. I had not heard of the Tropical Palms. I will check them out. I guess I am just nervous about her missing the Disney experience if we do not stay on the property, but I like the idea of saving money of a site so we could do more!

Orlando Bound

We will be going to Orlando this summer. Our primary purpose of the trip is to take a disney cruise, however I want to take my family down the week before so that my daughter can experience Disney. I am also thinking it might be cool to see Universal Studios while we are down there as well. We will be taking our camper to stay in on the trip there and back. Here is my questions that I am coming up with since we have never done this kind of trip before. 1) If you are going to visit Disney and Universal, where is the best place to stay? I have been looking at Fort Wilderness and it looks nice, but am I spending too much money just for the sake of staying at Disney? 2) I have read in the forum on some recommendations for the best sites at Fort Wilderness, but do you recommend anything or anypace better that a family would enjoy? 3) I have googled the benefits of staying on property vs. staying off property, but most of those opinions are over a year old. Do you have any advice you would be willing to share? Thank you in adavnce to sharing your opinion in helping create an ultimate family memory!
