RE: Jayco vs. Other brands experiences?

My Jayco has had very few problems. In fact I don't think I really had to even bring it back for Warranty service. Well except the refrigerator cooling unit sprung a leak, but that was on Norcold, not Jayco and the dealer repaired it under warranty. I would buy a Jayco again based on the way their customer service treated me when I made a mistake out of warranty. It was my fault and out of warranty and they met me at least half way with the repair. I think though that the ultimate build is probably the same as many other trailers out there. If I were to buy again I would at least stay away from the ultra lights based on the many postings here. They seem to wind up with soft spots on the floors from repeated foot traffic and many have what I would view as a substandard strength frame. They also have low ceiling heights and that won't work for me at almost 6'6". This is all just my humble opinion though. :)

RE: turning a CO2 tank upside down

Thanks guys. I'll ask when I bring it in for a refill soon. Hopefully it's something they can easily reverse.

RE: Sanitize freshwater

I'm probably guilty of over sanitizing my system. It gets sanitized at the end of summer as that's the start of my camping season. then somewhere around Jan I can't remember if I ever sanitized it this year so I do it again. Come May I might do it again just to be sure. I also fill the water heater when I sanitize because there is some water in the bottom even after I drain it.

RE: A Truism for TT Owners

Lol I've verified that fact many times over the last few years. I finally got smart enough to put a plastic grocery bag over it to keep the shin level grease spot off my pant leg.

turning a CO2 tank upside down

One thing I love about this forum is there is someone from every walk of life on here. So I have a question about CO2 tanks that someone might have the answer to.. I have what I believe is a 20lb CO2 tank. In the past I have used it turned upside down to blow liquid CO2 onto gum and other general mucky spots on my household carpet. This freezes the offending matter and I can just chip it off with the edge of a butter knife. But ever since I had the tank refilled last, I cannot get any liquid out of it. I can feel that there is liquid in it, and I can turn it upside down. But all that comes out is gas. Did the welding supply store change my existing valve out? Is there some kind of new law (like the 80% fill law for Propane) that makes it illegal to use a valve that can expel liquid CO2? Thanks for any insights.

RE: Bypassing the converter

I guess I'm trying to ask: will I only draw the amount of watts that I am using (for the appliance) or am I drawing the full 1500 watts by just being plugged into the outlet? You are only drawing the amount that is being used. the inverter is capable of providing 1,500 but it only provides what you use. Think of it like a garden hose. It can flow 10 gallons a minute full force. But if you hook it to a drip irrigation system it will only use a few gallons an hour.

RE: "Ramp" for sewer line?

I have one, I even used it once or twice. But then I just started putting the hose away between uses and now the supports just sit in a storage bay.

RE: Equal-i-zer Hitch question - Keystone Terrain 250TRS

I had the same question about the coupler height when I bought my trailer. I called the dealer and the salesman grabbed a tape measure and measured one on the lot. If they have a similar model they'll probably do the same for you.

RE: How Long Do Your Propane Tanks Last

I would say I have to refill one of the tanks every season and a half to two seasons. I run the everything off propane when I'm desert camping. But really the furnace only comes on maybe 10 times on a really cold night. I would say either I'm really frugal with propane use, or I need to get out more. I would guess probably 20 - 40 days per tank.

RE: Anybody towing with an older truck?

I pull my TT with a 1996 3/4 ton Suburban. I pull my PU with a 1977 Bronco.

RE: Wanted to say thanks

Glad to hear you had a good time. And thanks for coming back and letting us know how it went.

RE: Damaged Gutter Spouts

No, but can you expand on another vehicle getting too close? Is that what happened to yours? That sounds like a scary situation.

RE: Losing the weight without losing the convenience

I was thinking about your dual tanks. I would either replace one tank with a piece of 2x4 lumber so the dual tank clamp still works. Or another option that's lighter, just not as light is just run wint one 30 lb tank empty and never fill it.

RE: Setting up for the 1st time at campground

As you can see it's fairly easy and everyone has the same basic steps so I won't reiterate the same stuff here. Ultimately the steps are fairly simple and you will figure it out pretty quickly so I'm only going to suggest what i think is a safety issue in all these steps. Like ah64id states in rule #9, the safety chains stay attached until the trailer is disconnected, the wheels are chocked, and you have verified it's not going to roll away. I go one step further and when it comes time to break camp I try to always hook up a chain right after I back under the coupler. If you want to know why, just stay on these forums for a while and someone will post about disconnecting the hitch and then trying to stop their trailer as it is rolling down the hill toward the lake. :E

RE: RV Goop vs Caulk

Interesting, I never knew it existed. Personally I have only used Dicor that is sold by the RV shops.

RE: RV Goop vs Caulk

What do you mean by RV Goop and caulk? Is there a product called RV Goop or are you hoping to compare between an RV specific sealant and caulking you can buy at a home improvement store?

RE: Gutter Spouts with Extensions

I use the ones that DutchmenSport linked. They've been on for almost 7 years without a problem. I guess they direct the water away from the sides. But it's hard to tell since it never seems to rain around here.

RE: Fried Eggs in Bread

Growing up in San Diego, Ca I've never heard of them until now. I'm going to have to try that for the kids breakfast one morning. Maybe for mine as well.

RE: Looking for A-Frame rental (California)

The only thing I know is that if you're Navy or Marines they rent one Aliner at the 32nd street naval base in San Diego. I don't have any real information aside from that because I am not military, but I was helping a friend out and did some poking around last year so I'll post it here in case it helps someone. In looking through an old email chain I see that I did a search for OAC NBSD Camping Rentals. I might have been on the MWR website when I did this search, or it might have been Google. The rental price was $125 a weekend and there was usually a decent size waiting list. (possibly bigger after I post this) That's about all the help I can offer.
