RE: Towing with RAM 1500

What is actual payload per the tire and loading sticker? That could be an issue with 800 pounds of loaded TW. The 5.7L and 8-spd even with 3.21 will do very well. You should have at least 5 usable towing gears. Lock out the top 3 gears, keep the engine over 2000rpm at all times. ====================================== Use the tow/haul when pulling the trailer. That Hemi will pull that trailer anywhere. I cruise at 1800RPM at 63 MPH on I-75 going to Florida each year. On the flats the Hemi is in the ECO Mode ( uses only 4 cylinders not eight) and sure improves the gas mileage. Happy trails,

RE: Love Bugs Florida Turnpike

There shouldn't be any left in Florida now. I brought them all back on the front of my trailer... :B:):R

RE: how do I stop hung clothes flying off rod when traveling

Many years ago we found out if you turn all your hanger hooks backwards( open hanger hook facing out instead of in) then none of our clothes fell off the pole. And we've bounced up in the air many times in our travels. Just last January I bent the electric stabilizer motor when going over some railroad tracks (cost $100 to replace)and still no clothes fell on the floor. happy trails,

RE: 2016 Jayco 24RKS

Had a 2006 322FKS Jayco Eagle. Hauled it all over the U.S. and the Eastern half of Canada. Only real complaint we had was too many staples in the walls. Really upset the wife. Here's a 11 minute video of your new trailer. Looks perfect for two people. White Hawk Hopefully you have the residential queen size bed ( 60" x 80"). Happy trails,

RE: Home Today

Glad to hear you had a safe trip. As far as mileage goes we only go from Michigan to Ft. Myers in Feb & March and put on 5900 miles. It adds up fast. Happy trails,

S.W. Florida filling up.

Friend off mine just called Upriver RV Resort in North Ft. Myers for a months stay in Feb 2017. All filled up!!!!!!!!!!!!! Looks like SW Florida will be swamped again. I hope the people like brown ocean water down there. Seems the Corp of Engineers likes to dump swamp water from Lake Okeechobee into Ft. Myers area. Last winter the water was brown from Ft. Myers beach all the way past Port Charlotte. Even the Spring breakers weren't going in. What a mess that was.....

RE: Day 6

Let the OP start their own facebook page and then all you people who have so much time on your hands can listen in. OR: Post this stuff in the "RV Lifestyles" section so we trailer owners don't have to sift through this stuff....

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: 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,
