RE: Video Review of Winnebago Travato 59G

I believe now if you order a new van from the factory it will be a 2016 model. Someone said there are additional colors, but haven't said there were any new features. Top of my list for things I'd like to see is the Truma system and a second battery. Think both of those are do-able. Any update on any pending changes on the 2016 model yet? I understand that the 2016 59G model is already on the market but I guess it is an early version of the 2016 model at this time, most of the features are probably still similar to those of the 2015 one. I am seriously considering downsizing from my current TT/TV combo to a class B and the Travato 59G is one of my top choices. Any reason you would advise me to hold off a bit and see if any significant updates such as the Truma system will be implemented? Thanks!

RE: Video Review of Winnebago Travato 59G

Excellent video with a lot of information that is very helpful to me, a perspective buyer of the 59G. Just a couple follow-up questions. (1) Battery and Generator Position - How serious should one be concerned with the low clearance of the battery and generator, including the potential of getting them damaged? Furthermore, how difficulty would it be for doing some routine maintenance work on them yourself, particularly with the battery? A specific question that I have about the battery is whether it is easy to connect a trickle charge cable to the battery terminals during winter storage time without removing the battery. Also, how difficult it is to remove the battery in case you really have to without using a high bay? (2) The Need for Pumping out the Grey Tank - This is something that's not normally required by most other RVs and an additional piece of part to worry about. Do you think that this will stay with the 59G for a long time due to its particular floor plan or whether it likely that WB might eliminate this problem on the 2016 model of the 59G? (3) Any words on when the 2016 59G will become available? What some of the things that you would like to see improved on the third year model, such as switching to the new hot water heating system as that of the 59K? Thanks again for your great postings relating to the Winnebago Travato 59G and 59K.

RE: Price Aside, Which one would you chose Hensley or Propride?

Timely indeed. The cub is on sale for around 1500. I have a 21 rbs, less than 4k lbs but sway has been an issue on the last west coast venture. I dont think pro pride has a new model for that price. The Cub unit no question is cheaper. On the other hand, please be careful that its tongue weight limit, as I understand, is 600#. For myself, I would only purchase a Cub if: (1) I am very sure that the LOADED tongue weight of my TT, (not the dry tongue weight) after adding propane, batteries, etc., is indeed under 600#, and, (2) I will not be upgrading to a bigger TT down the road. If the answer to either (1) or (2) is no, I would definitely go for a 3P.

RE: Price Aside, Which one would you chose Hensley or Propride?

I have the ProPride and love it,Would I buy one again, In a heart beat X2 from another very satisfied 3P owner. I also wanted to add that the help and advice that I have been getting from Sean on all my technical questions, even 6 years after I bought the 3P from him, has been unparalleled. This kind of dedication to customers is such a rarity nowadays.

RE: Progress Industry 30 Amp Problem?

Just a quick update. Went out to the same state park the past week and proved that it was indeed the 2 minute delay at work - got E0 but zero ampere right after plugging in, then full power after waiting for a few minutes. Thanks much for the help, I love this forum!

RE: Winnebago Trend - First Drive Impressions

Con’s - Generator and coach battery only accessible from underneath :) I also raised this as a potential concern to a salesperson when I test drove a Trend. His response was: "why do you want to access them?". How important is this issue to some of you?

RE: Progress Industry 30 Amp Problem?

Thanks, everyone! I have totally forgotten about the 2:16 delay thing. Most of the time, after plugging in the PI30 and connecting the power cable, I would go about doing other set up chores before entering the TT to turn on the A/C or other appliances. That takes a lot longer than 2 minutes. For the couple occasions that I described above, I think I probably had entered the TT right away after plugging in the PI30 (yes, it is a portable one) and cable trying to turn on something and found out that there's no power. Hopefully, that's what it was. I will definitely check this out the next time when I am out there camping. I might also get one of these polarity testers. It appears to be a very handy item to have around as an additional insurance thing or for checking against the PI30. S.K.

Progress Industry 30 Amp Problem?

Following was a recent posting by me responding to another thread related to surge protectors: During a camping trip at a state park last year, we got no power to the TT when the PI 30 amp was connected. Once the PI 30 amp was removed, however, full power was flowing to the TT. We waited for a while, tried a couple more times and got the same result. It appeared that there was a fault with the power source and that the PI 30 amp was doing its job. So we were facing a dilemma: camping without power or taking a risk and connecting to the pedestal without using the PI, thus defeating the purpose of owning a PI 30 amp. What would you have done? Well, the same thing happened again at the same state park this week. When I connected my PI 30 Amp unit to the power pedestal, it read 116 V, E0 (which means "normal"). However, when I entered into the TT, there was no power - a separate meter that I had plugged into one of the receptacles in the TT read zero volt and zero amp. But as soon as I removed the PI 30 amp, I immediately got full power. Can anyone suggest what the problem was? Btw, I decided to take the risk and connected to the power pedestal directly. We used the ac, fridge, microwave, water heater...for the entire three days when we were there with no issues. Were we just lucky or that my PI 30 amp unit was not working properly?

RE: Loose Screw on the ProPride Hitch Head

Thanks everyone for responding, that's what I tend to think too. But I just wanted to be on the safe side by asking for advice from people like you. As a Hensley owner, I seriously doubt that has anything to do with your hitch. However, I would send that picture to the ProPride folks and ask them just to be on the safe side. Mike Good suggestion! I did email the picture to ProPride. Sean Woodruff, as usual, responded very quickly and confirmed that the screw was not a part of the ProPride hitch. He also suggested that it might have come from the electric tongue jack. I will go to the storage yard in a day or two to check this out.

Loose Screw on the ProPride Hitch Head

Just got back from our first camping trip of this season. As usual, the ProPride hitch performed admirably in making the towing experience a very comfortable one, However, after unhitching, I noticed that there's a 3/4" long stainless bolt/screw sitting on the top of the hitch head (please see photo below). I have no idea where did this screw come from nor how long it has been sitting there. Could anyone who has a ProPride tell whether there is a possibility that this was something worked loose from the ProPride hitch or that it was completely unrelated to the hitch (for example, from the electric jack)? I did examine the hitch carefully and couldn't see any obvious indication that this was a part of the hitch. It also appears to be too small for being part of the ProPride, but I thought I better be careful when there is any possibility of a potential safety issue. Thanks! http://i.imgur.com/0A2diE3l.jpg
