RE: Difference In Coachmen Brands

For what its worth the Forest River Rockwood Windjammer and the Flagstaff V_Lite are made the same way. Just cosmetic changes but made by the same company. Forest River is the largest RV manufacturer in the world. And many of their lines are duplicates. Many people use that to their advantage when they are shopping for new trailers. They can price out a unit at either a Rockwood or Flafstaff dealer. Happy trails,

RE: What could cause this?

IF that 'fixes' issue.......buy a new thermal fuse and replace it. Clean out combustion chamber. Enjoy hot water :B Thank you, thank you. Saved me a lot of time and hit the tail on the head. Thanks to everyone for there suggestions also. =============================== Okay now that you know what the problem is be sure to buy a spare fuse & keep it in your tool box. We had this same problem with a Jayco we had. Seems that water would drip down on the fuse connections and cause problems. Moved the fuse over & taped is up and it worked fine. Happy trails,

RE: Jayco Eagle 284BHBE - second AC?

Here's a thought. Buy the unit with the "50 Amp and 2nd A.C. Prep.Option" (without the actual 2nd AC unit installed). Then you will have the option to later install the 2nd AC if needed. The bedroom will have the 120 Volt wired and reinforced for the AC if needed. This is the way we ordered our last 2 trailers. Oh, it's nice to have the 50 Amp available if you need it. Happy trails.

RE: Added a tailgate led strip to the back of my trailer

I would like a LED sign I could program from the cab. Phrases like, sorry I cut you off and back off As**&e. Maybe sell advertising.In Mexico, "yes I am really turning left, not signaling you to pass" would be handy. In spanish of course.(In Mexico on highways using your left turn signal indicates to the vehicle behind its safe to pass you, If you are unaware of this it can cause the obvious problem.) ============================= Try that in Michigan and they will shoot you.....

RE: Added a tailgate led strip to the back of my trailer

Looks nice. Now does your new LED strip have just running & brake lights or does it include turn signals also?? Happy trails,

RE: Vent fan opinions

We had 3 vent fans in our Rockwood 8315BSS Signature Ultra Lite 34 ft. travel trailer. I ordered one in the bedroom from the factory. Lots of people like us like the noise of a fan while we're sleeping. To bad we spent most of our time in the South where it was 100 plus degrees a lot of the time which was to hot for anything other than the A/C on high. I've seen the temperature at 98 degrees at midnight in Jackson, MS. ============================ That's why we ordered our 3029W Windjammer with 50 Amp & 2nd A.C. prep ( $290 option MSRP) in the front bedroom. If we ever need a second A.C I can just drop one in. Wife says she wants the sunlight to come in the bedroom. We'll see... Happy trails,

RE: Vent fan opinions

We just ordered a 3029W Windjammer with almost the same floor plan as yours. We ordered the optional fan in the kitchen area to assist in exhausting odors etc. because our stove vent does not exhaust outside. If I were you I would remove the ceiling vent bracket in the kitchen and look for the wiring. It may already be there because your trailer could have been ordered with that vent fan option. Rockwoods are difficult to fish wiring in the walls or ceilings due to the fact they have solid foam insulation there. As a last resort you may want to try this type of wiring channel so that at least it cosmetically looks good. Click here:Wire channel Happy trails,

RE: License Plates??

Too bad you're not a Michigan resident. We pay $200 for a travel trailer plate and it's good for as long as you have the trailer (non-transferable though).

RE: Thinking about going from m MH to TT who makes quality units

June 25, 2015 What we witnessed was outstanding. The light weight Retro RV is assembled by Amish workers who place great pride in giving attention to detail. Thanks again to all the Riverside staff and we wish you very best success in your future endeavors.Jim Harrell ========================== Jim, I don't want to "rain on your parade" but those sweet little Amish workers are paid piecemeal. They make or assemble X amount of parts per day and go home. They are no better or worse than other assembly workers in other fields. We've been through many manufacturer tours and they all look nice on the outside. There are tons of poor quality control messages on these RV Forums. That's why most of us old timers suggest your final purchase to be made through a local dealer because chances are you'll need them for warranty work. Glad you're happy with your choice.

RE: Thinking about going from m MH to TT who makes quality units

You may want to look over the Rockwood trailer line up. One model has a residential king bed the others have residential queens. Here's a video on one of the various Rockwood models Windjammer. It shows how strong the six sided trailers are. Good luck on your venture.

RE: Lance travel trailer question

Lance has been around for a long time. If you're concerned about a curved (rounded) top roof line ( like I am) you may want to investigate manufacturers that not only have curved roofs but also wrap the roof around the top and down the side wall a few inches where it is secured. No seams on the roof that way. Happy trails,

RE: Tornado

Totaled our Keystone High Country a year ago on South I-75. AAA insurance gave us book value. But they wouldn't give us the 6% sales tax or $200 license fee we paid just 8 months before. Seems in Michigan we pay $200 license fee that's good forever but only for that particular trailer (non-transferable)...

RE: Cougar 28rbswe vs...?

I'm confused by the part about "we're halfway through 2016." ============================ Well not quite. All new orders coming out now will be 2016 models. The RV guys usually change over to the next year models starting around the end of May. So if someone had ordered a new unit say in April and their delivery was in June it's probably a 2016 titled. Kind of like the way the auto companies keep jumping forward with their new models. Happy trails,

RE: Cougar 28rbswe vs...?

Nice looking floor plan for a family. Mentions queen size bed. Is it a RV queen (60x72 inches or a residential queen at 60x80". Big difference if you're tall. Keystone's Cougar lites (and some other Keystone model trailers)are now coming out with a non-walk on roof. No ladder option available due to the roof not reinforced enough to walk on safely. This was a deciding factor on us not buying a new Cougar (bought a Rockwood 3029W instead). Happy trails,

RE: Miss my Jayco

We had a 2006 Jayco Eagle 322FKS. Had delamination- wife hated the construction (cheap)I didn't like the idea that Jayco used wood trusses in the roof. (still do). Good luck on your choice.

RE: lance trailers

All of my travel trailers from 1997 on have had a front window and I have never had a single leak. They all had a front rock guard on them however. My present trailer is a 2004 with many many miles on it and no leak. Barney ====================== It also has a cover over the front window to protect it. The lance doesn't. Happy trails,
BillB800si 06/23/15 06:18pm Travel Trailers
RE: lance trailers

That front window without a cover is going to take a lot of punishment from road debris.

RE: Those with dogs

Those that camp with dogs that allow them to pee/poo behind my camp site and bark at 6am. Please forgive me if I relieve myself behind your campsite and blair my music all night. $100/night doesn't weed out the inconsiderate ones evidently. Sorry for the rant. I try hard to respect others, especially while camping.:( ========================= Don't let those small things ruin your camping experience. Enjoy the outdoors the people and the sights. Life is too short to worry about POOP...:B

RE: lance trailers

The windows are not plastic, there acrylic, and only in the small 1575. The best thing to do is go look at a lot of TT, look at the construction, from the axels to the roof, then make your own decision. Don't confuse light weight with lack of quality, some people can't wrap their heads around modern technology. ========================== Here's a video with a good illustration of some solid built walls- ceilings and cabinets. We just ordered a 2016 3029W unit. And it is light weight for the size. Windjammer 3029W
