RE: Kitchen Modification

Looks nice. You may want to extend those tiles half way up on both side walls. Any grease splatter would be easier to clean up. Happy trails,

RE: Rockwood Ultra Lite 2304ds vs Jayco Jay Flight 23MDS

We've had Jayco Eagle and Rockwood Windjammer trailers. Construction quality was much better on the Rockwood. Wife noticed it right away. BTW for $150 Forest River extends their warranty on the Rockwood trailers to two years. Good luck on your choice.

RE: new units look exactly like what we already have

Gee, they don't make houses like they use to, they don't make cars like they used to, now they don't make RV's like they use to. Guess we better just put our money in the bank and stop buying anything. Oh yes, they said the same thing about 30 years ago. Times haven't changed. There's good and not so good. Happy trails,

RE: Rear View Camera opinions

RE: Flip Foot on Electric tongue jack

Had one on our 2014 Cougar High Country. Never again!!!! Sometimes it wouldn't fold out all the way on the way down. Then it wouldn't fold up properly. just one more thing to give you trouble Just bout a 2016 Windjammer 3029W and the standard 8 inch extension tube works great.

RE: Ram 1500 towing

We have a 2016 Rockwood Windjammer 3029W ( 7400#) with a 1400# Equalizer Hitcher. We pull it with a 2015 Ram 1500 with a V8 Hemi- 8 speed auto trans with standard 3.21 rear end. It pulls that trailer easily. But I wouldn't want to go over 60 MPH doing it. Too much trailer for a 1/2 ton truck...

Windjammer awning "BANG"

Every time I extend the main awning on our 2016 Windjammer 3029W I get this big bang from the awning that shakes the trailer. Sounds like it's hanging up on the front strut and then letting go. Retracting is fine. Had it back to the dealer and they say it's a known problem with Windjammer awnings because of some delay in the mechanism. Sounds fishy to me as the second awning over the dining room slide never makes this noise and it works fine. Both awnings have the metal shield that covers it when retracted. Anyone else had this problem?? Many thanks,

RE: Windjammer tire chocks ???

Does it REALLY matter if it wiggles a little bit? After all it is a trailer. It used to concern me but as time went by I use fewer and fewer "cures". Now I am down to the yellow chocks on one wheel each side and my front and rear jacks and stabilizers. Less junk to mess with when I set up. Works for me.B.O. ====================== With me- NO. But with the wife it does. So guess what... :)

Windjammer tire chocks ???

I have a 2016 Windjammer 3029W that has a 28 inch outside tire diameter and only 1.5 inch space between the tires. Can't find any chocks to fit. I've tried those yellow plastic V shaped wedges but they still allow movement when walking around in the trailer. Was looking for something like those chocks that BAL has BAL Chocks. Even these won't work because they required a minimum of 3 ½ inch spacing between the tires. Chocks Can anyone help out. ???

RE: A/V Options

Check out the iRV 66.. I have this in my 2016 Rockwood Windjammer and it works great. Bruc ====================== I have the same unit on our 2016 Windjammer 3029W and it has terrible reception. Antenna extended or not the FM stations are weak and only about 5 come in. On AM there's nothing but noise. Pulled the unit out and all connections are firm. Tried a CD and it worked fine. I'm at a loss here????

RE: Dual Pain Windows

We had them on our 2007 Jayco Eagle. Waste of money for insulation or noise reduction. Our 2014 Cougar High Country came standard and worked the same as the Jayco. Save your money and if moisture is a problem get a small dehumidifier. Lots of folks in Florida use them Happy trails,

RE: Working on a no-walk roof

The reason Keystone ( on Cougar line up anyway) went to no walk roofs is because of the weight. They want their longer trailers to be classed as "light-weight". We had a Cougar High Country 321RES that we could walk on the roof but no more. So we just went out and bought a 2016 Rockwood Windjammer 3029W. Rockwoods have a solid roof to walk on... Happy trails,

RE: Two Gray Tanks

Three ( 1-black & 2 grey) was the exact reason we didn't buy a certain trailer. There's campgrounds we go to that demand all sewer hoses DO NOT touch the ground. And trying to keep various hoses ( Y connections etc...) from touching the ground is a hassle. Many trailers with rear kitchen and mid bathrooms have 3 holding tanks. Just be aware and make your own decisions. happy trails ps, we pick up our 2016 Rockwood Windjammer 3029W this Tuesday and it only has 2 tanks!!!!

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,
