RE: Battery

Bob213 is correct. The true deep cycle has thicker plates which store electricity to be used for longer term power draws for lights,water pumps and circuits boards in RV's. They are heavier and more expensive. Hybrids, which also work very well in RV use, have a thinner plate which also stores power but allows quick powerful bursts of electricity for starting or cranking an engine. This is called cold cranking amps..CCA = a rating on hybrid deep cycle batteries as well as car batteries. True deep cycles normally do not have CCA ratings. Hybrids became popular for marine use to start the boat as well run all the electronics for navigation and fishing. They can discharged and charged many more times than a standard ( thinner plated ) car battery, making a good general choice for the RV'r. http://sciencing.com/marine-vs-deep-cycle-battery-5606295.html Thank you for the explanation.

RE: Battery

Depending on your needs, will determine how much you spend, what brand you choose and the size battery you need. People are guessing as what to offer you. If you use hook ups at campgrounds you can get by with any 12 v battery. If you camp without hookups off grid, then you would need deep cycle batteries . They make true deep cycle batteries and they make hybrid deep cycle batteries. bobndot, you are losing me. What's the difference between a true deep cycle, and a hybrid deep cycle?

Battery

Need to replace our 4 year old deep cycle battery not holding charge as it should ( Charger works fine )As I use it to charge my other battery for my other camper without issues. Looking for suggestions on brand names and price without breaking the bank ( I know you get what you pay for ). Thank you all in advance...

RE: I'm just gonna leave this here.

Looks like a cop walking up next to it! You are right Interex, that is a state trooper, probably checking the overall length.

RE: Help! Need new awning

RE: Ceiling Bowed, Snow? Slide Out?

I tell you what, I have to agree with Old-Biscuit bow roof/ceiling it's damage plain and simple. And as he suggested and others here walk away from it if you gave a deposit see if seller is willing to returned it to you and look for another unit. An honest person would understand your concerns I know I would, good luck.;)

RE: Getting a new Lance 1575. How to get started?

Congrats on your new T.T. and welcome to the forum. I am sure you will learn a lot from the folks here, I'm still learning every day. Read your manual and always keep it with you when traveling. Happy camping!!:)

RE: Length of Trailers

I have to agree with Grandpakip my box is 23 but when I make reservations to CG or SP I say it's a 25ft. From bumper to hitch, because that's the actual space that is going to take in the site where the T.T. will be set up.

RE: Deciding On our First Travel Trailer

My husband and I have been shopping for our first travel trailer for the last few months. The choices are a bit overwhelming, but we think we have finally at least decided on the floor plan that we want. I'm having a hard time finding a lot of reviews about the specific models that we are looking at, however, so I thought I would post and see if I could get some opinions. Three of the models we are comparing right now are the 2017 Jayco Jay Flight SLX 212QBW, 2017 Heartland Pioneer RD210, and the 2017 Coleman CTS202RD. The features are pretty similar from what we can tell, and the price is comparable as well. The Jayco does have a 2-year warranty, however, and the dealer selling it offers a lifetime warranty. As a side note, the Coleman & Heartland are both at Camping World. We like the idea of dealing with them and having access to multiple locations, but that lifetime warranty that the local dealer offers with the Jayco is really tempting. This is a big investment, and we want to get a good product, but we also realize that there are issues with all brands and want to make sure we have a good warranty to fall back on. Can anyone offer any feedback on any of these models or the brands in general? Any comments regarding the "lifetime" warranties some dealers include vs purchasing an extended warranty are welcome as well. Thank you in advance! Good Morning, I may be wrong but I have never heard of Jayco offering a lifetime warranty on their T.T. or what it covers. Extended warranty to purchase yes. So I really don't know what the sales person is referring in regards to a life time warranty? Again I may be wrong,since it's been a long time since I owned a Jayco. Maybe some other members can help you with this, good luck with your search. Kennedy

RE: Just bought our first TT - T@B Max-S

Chris and I are very excited! We are picking up our first TT this Tuesday and couldn't be happier! We got a sweet deal on this TT. It's a 2016 USED but never USED by the original owner. It is a 2016 Pleasant Valley (T@B Max-S). The RV lot selling it was helping the owner out and took it on consignment. We wanted something small for just the two of us and our dog. We love the layout and the fact that the craftsmanship of the trailer is so well made. The Amish build this and use birch wood throughout. It has all the amenities we need. We stole this baby! We haggled them down to $13k and most of these brand new/used start at $17k or higher. It has a stove, refrigerator, counter space, t.v., shower, toilet, queen size bed, table, privacy windows, screens, cable hook up, a/c, heat, birch wood throughout, plenty of storage, fresh water, propane, battery, electric, and so much more. Hey nothing wrong stealing from the dealer every now and then, especially when you get a great deal. Congrats sounds like a nice T.T. you got there and T.V. Happy camping! We took the plunge and got our truck as well. We got a 2015 Dodge Ram 1500 Big Horn, used as well with only 9k miles on it. Again we got a super deal on it and we are so happy. We are ready to hit the road to go camping and exploring!

RE: Spare tire cover

The thin vinyl spare tire cover that came on our trailer is showing signs of rot. The elastic band has stretched out of shape and the cover has only been removed once a year to check the air pressure. That means 2 times in it's life cycle. Can anyone point me in the direction of a website where I can order a better quality cover than the one that came with my trailer? We lost ours while driving back from North Carolina / Florida this past summer. I called the manufacture just to get a price on it, and they sent me a brand new one free of charge including the shipping which I was surprise.:B

RE: How much did I mess up?

Ok, total rookie mistake, and I should have thought about it prior to doing it. But how much did I mess up??? I asked a fellow RV'er friend of mine about winterizing my TT with anti freeze. He said, "piece of cake", just pour the antifreeze into your water tank and turn on the faucets till they run pink. So dumb-ass me goes and pours 5 gallons of antifreeze into my freshwater tank. After my first gallon I thought to myself, "self, this is a really stupid idea. I am contaminating my freshwater tank" So with the damage being done, after the first gallon was in, I pressed on and put in the other 4 gallons, thinking what's done is done. I ran the lines until they poured pink. My question is, just how screwed am I? Will I be able to flush 5 gallons or antifreeze out of my freshwater tank in the spring? Will I be able to drink out of my camper again? Do I fess up to my dealer/mechanic that I did this? Thoughts? Suggestions?? Bullets for my skull??? ...after I told my friend that I did this, he turns and says that he simply blows air thru his lines to get the water out...nice.I Have done this in the past, It should be fine.. Just flush good and sanitize as advised per other members..
