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...

RE: Windjammer awning "BANG"

Just heard from "Roger" at Forest City and they are looking into the problem. Said he would get back to me when they have found a solution. happy trails,

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,

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.
