RE: RV Direct & MSRP's!

I bought local but got my dealer to match a deal from rvwholesalers.com. ================================== Now that's the way to purchase an RV. Try your best to go through your local dealer. We do want these guys to stay in business. Happy trails,

RE: Furnace Troubleshooting

ill ck thermostat the way opnspaces suggested first. then go from there and ck regulator. my tanks are newly refilled and my stove works. so ill figure out a way to bypass regulator on trailer with propane line that has regulator that i used for bench test. ======================== Burners may still work with a bad regulator. Either test the regulator or turn on your high volume burner(stove) and see if you noticed a difference between that and the other regular (2) burners. That was my friends problem... Happy trails,

RE: 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 28BHS Thermal and Elite Package

I think I found the perfect jayco 28bhs. It has the impressive 90 gallon fresh water tank and thermal package. Perfect state park extended season camper. Should I pull the trigger? ============ Don't forget that 90 gallons of water will add about 745 pounds of weight to your trailer. Also Forest River trailers & 5th wheelers have a 2nd year warranty available for $150. Happy trails,

RE: Jack Knife Sofa Swap Out

It may be almost impossible to find a no leg sofa replacement. I would suggest getting the cushions rebuilt with a higher quality foam. ========================== Actually most any sofa the legs can be removed simply.

RE: Should we trade?

if your even up trading ? WHY A tax?? and most slides leak. just read all post on here about slides. if your staying put, get a small double wide house trailer. ================== Up until this year Michigan demanded a 6% sales tax on sale price of a vehicle ( car-truck -RV etc...)didn't matter what the trade in was. I traded in a $12,000 Jayco toward our trailer and still had to pay the 6% sales tax on the new trailer price. That has now changed. Only pay tax on the difference now. BTW, I've had 2 trailers with double slides each and no leaks.... Happy trails,

RE: Narrowed choices down.............. I think :)

Jayco is made with heavier materials as well as heavier slide design. Jayco uses wood trusses in the roof and floor.2 year warranty for Jayco vs 1 year for Keystone.Jayco wins hands down. ======================== Have had a Jayco Eagle and a Keystone Cougar HC trailers. Keystone beats Jayco in quality workmanship by far. Wife always complained about all the staples that Jayco used. Said she never wanted another one. Next week we will order a Rockwood 8310SS trailer with six sided aluminum frames. An BTW Forest River has a 2 year warranty for a $150 adder. Construction between Jayco & Rockwood are light years apart. Happy trails,

RE: RV Direct & MSRP's!

The last two new trailers we bought I requested a quote on the Manufacturers "Build Sheet" (Jayco & Keystone). The dealers use the "Build sheet" to order their units. It usually is a long list of models with options and shows base price plus options as MSRP pricing. I immediately take 30% off that price and then start negotiating with the dealers. Next week I'll start all over again when we order our new Rockwood Signature 8310SS trailer. Happy trails,

RE: Bubbles under rubber roof

I've noticed on some of the upper end newer trailers they are wrapping the roof over the sides of the trailers and attaching them to the top of the sidewalls. This allows for no seam on the top (seam is on the side). Then if water does puddle up there's no seam on top to leak through. Happy trails,

RE: Something interesting to try with your Equal-i-zer

Towing with the 2010 Dodge and GM trucks looked downright dangerous! Towing with the Ford and it's new integrated braking system looked like it was not a white knuckle ride at all. Have fun camping! Fred. ======================= I don't know about the GMC but Dodge Ram has "Trailer Brake Control" and "Electronic Stabilizer Control" built right in the truck. Happy trails,

RE: Adding Rear Bumper Cargo Carrier

Keep it nice looking. Throughout the years I've seen soooo many RV's going down the road with all kinds of junk tied to the back end. Looks like a bunch of gypsies traveling around. The newer light weight aluminum carriers look nice and practical.

RE: New Lance 1685 Aniversary Edition video

Never cared for Lance's floorplans. I like privacy in the bedroom and all the floorplans I've ever seen of Lances had just a curtain separating the bedroom from the main area.

Rockwood Signature Trailer Options

Forest River was quick today to respond to some questions I had on options to the new Rockwood Signature trailer line up. What was a pleasant surprise was this year they are supplying a standard 7 cubic foot refrigerator and an outside 2 cubic ft. on some models. Here's their answers to my questions: ------------------------ 1- Is this unit available with a 50 Amp, 2nd A.C. Prep option ( without actual A.C. unit) ? If so, what is the price adder? ANS: Yes, MSRP $290 special write in option. 2- Can this unit be ordered with no carpeting in the kitchen- living area but still have carpeting in the bedroom area? ANS: Yes, option: 10-2354-1 Minimum Carpet – KEEP BEDROOM CARPET 3- Can this unit be ordered with “D” rated tires instead of “C” rated? Literature indicates it comes with ST225/75R/C tires as standard. ANS: We do not have tire options. We cannot install tires that would overstate the cargo carrying limit of our trailers as defined by the GVWR, axle, frame and wheels used. You can upgrade to aftermarket tires if you desire, but realize the GVWR and cargo carrying capacity doesn’t change with higher rate tires. 4- Can this unit be ordered with a 8 cubic ft. frig (verses the 6 cubic ft.) ? ANS: We do not have an 8 cubic ft. refrigerator available. The Signature models now have a 7 cubic ft. refrigerator standard. Some models have a additional 2 cubic ft. outside accessible refrigerator included. We plan on visiting the February 2015 RV Show in Novi, Michigan and look over the Rockwood Signature line. ANS: We will be represented at the Novi show by our Detroit market dealers and will have a factory representative on hand.

RE: Jayco travel trailers and fivers

We had a Jayco Eagle 322FKS that we traded in. Reason: DELAMINATION in the walls. We had a mold issue around the exterior doors due to the fact Jayco didn't insulate around the aluminum frames. I had to clean etc.. the area and then foam insulate it. We had electrical shorts while on a trip. Lost half our power till we got back. Never did like the idea that Jayco uses wood trusses in the roof- too prone to rot and heavy weight. Wife always complained about the walls with all the staples. After each season I had to retighten all the electrical connections on the main circuit breaker panel. Good luck with your choice.

RE: Grand Haven Michigan State Park IMPOSSIBLE to Reserve

And that's why we don't camp in State parks. Other reasons: too noisy too many drunks

RE: so..........how do yo know a good deal?

Your price definitely is good. Be sure you're happy with the floorplan. There's very little kitchen counter space for food prep etc... The bed is a RV Queen 60" x 74" (not residential 60"x80")... plenty of storage space available. Happy trails,

RE: Looking for RV Mfgr who brags/warranties it's seams sealants

Here's a suggestion that may help you out. Look for a roof material that overlaps the side walls. A one piece roof that rolls over the roof edge and then is attached to the top of the side walls will prevent many leaks because there's no seam on the roof. An arched roof also directs the water more quickly from the roof and doesn't allow for puddles to develop. Happy trails,

RE: LED replacement for trailer tail light

Here you go I have had there brake light replacement for 2 years they work great. http://commandelectronics.com/product-category/brakemarkeretc/stop-lights/led-stop-lights/ ================== Command Electronics makes many LED replacement fixtures for RV's. They also will recommend the proper lens for the brake light assy. DOT regulations requires changes on the lens when the incandescent is replaced by LED.. Happy trails,
