RE: What is J-Wrap?

Hi Doug, I’m not sure I understand your post? Is it you’re not happy that I’m happy. Or you’re not happy because I’m happy because many others aren’t? I’ve gone through a bunch of stuff to get to a point of feeling good about my coach's future. Unless the folks told me bare faced lies, my coach is being fixed and are putting beefier metal on all their coaches. I believe the builder is doing everything they can to deliver me “as close to perfect coach” they can. They’ve not given me a run-around and have answered all of my questions? If they didn’t know or weren’t sure, they told me that. And then got back to me when they said they would with an answer. I don’t know how to ask a company to do anymore!

RE: What is J-Wrap?

Ok we’re getting there. I spoke with the senior tech who inspected my coach. He told me there is NOTHING wrong with the Coach structure and there are NO safety issues. The J-wrap problem was due to the medal supporting the the J-Wrap was too thin allowing flexing when the Coach was sitting uneven. It should not have happened and is being reinforced so it never happens again. They also took all basement doors off the Coach and reinforced their frames with a stronger metal. They guarantee it for the life of the Coach in writing! Can’t get much better than that. They will also perform a full PDI and will bring an independent inspector when their PDI is completed. I’m going on five (5) months without my coach but it sounds like once I get it it should be 100%! It’s been a “Long and Winding Road” (hey there may be a song in there somewhere?) Everything looks like it’s coming to a positive end.

RE: What is J-Wrap?

The Coach builder has had my coach since last week. I believe they will take a look at my coach this week. My hope is they will tell me honestly what caused the problem with 36’ of J-wrap on both sides of the Coach? I’ll let you know when I do!

RE: What is J-Wrap?

Hi Ford truck guy, You guys knew what happened and what was being done to fix it. My concern is no one seems to know anything! The Coach builder should have it by the end of the week and I hope to know then what happened?

RE: Do you own the New River Ranch by Columbus?

So what do you think cj99, is it a keeper? After 10 months you should have worked the kinks out of it for sure. Do you have the 390 or 392 and any major issues? Do you have central air or three roof units? What are three things you like about it and and three things you don’t? Sorry for so many questions but you’re the first person I know that has a River Ranch and has been using it awhile. Thanks so much and look forward to your reply.

RE: What is J-Wrap?

My thoughts exactly Doug, The pictures taken by the driver who delivered Coach - no problem. A professional Inspector, Salesmen and I went over Coach - no problem. Six (6) days after the above inspection, serious J-Wrap damage on both sides - Big Problem! No one seems to know what happened (manufacturer will have Coach by end of week) but everyone knows something has! Are there serious safety concerns? Has something happened that will change its resale value? This is a coach I’ve spent 7 hours in and around during professional PDI and it has never left the dealer. Maybe I’m most concerned because NO ONE has any idea? It scars the heck out of me that I spent good money for something that may have a serious problem. I can only hope I’m told the truth???

RE: What is J-Wrap?

Yes sir Doug, I think you got that exactly right! BTW Forest River picked up my coach this morning. Yippee!!! I hope they will tell me what happened with the J-Wrap? And I’ve already told them I’m concerned from the safety aspect. Somehow enough stress was put on the coach to have caused that problem. That’s one reason I want to know the cause because that will speak to other problems.

RE: What is J-Wrap?

The J-Wrap is under the basement doors and Columbus told me the J-Wrap runs front to back without a seam. Maybe I misunderstood them! But my question is “How does J-Wrap go from good to bad in 6 days? Seems to me it somehow had to be stressed but am unsure what that would be?

RE: What is J-Wrap?

Hi guys and thanks for your response. Doug, do you have any idea of what the dealer could have done to cause this problem on both sides of the Coach. The J-Wrap was fine when I was there for the PDI. Five days later the J-Wrap was so bad that the dealer service tech said he could see it all the way across the service center. I was told the J-Wrap on both sides runs the entire length of the Coach. That’s isn’t true?There are certainly no seams shown!.

RE: What is J-Wrap?

I’m happy to say the manufacturer is taking the Coach back for them to fix. I told them I had no confidence in the dealer after all this time. Now I think I’ll get things done!

RE: Do you own the New River Ranch by Columbus?

My coach came in December but due to PDI problems I don’t have it yet.

Do you own the New River Ranch by Columbus?

I’d like to communicate with River Ranch owners about your Coach? River Ranch is now in its 2nd full year of production. And as an owner myself, would love to compare notes with other owners. I was hoping Forest River, the parent company, would have an owners forum? Thank you one and all.

RE: Getting gas with long trailer?

RVing is not for those who dislike paying attention and sometimes following the rules. Do you find that as a rule, people are pretty good about giving extra room and/or hanging back when needed? I’ve had little trouble with folks while driving a motorhome. I would think the same is true pulling a fifth wheel? I’ve always used diesel pumps in the past without issue using truck stops. It’s nice to know that FlyingJ has pull through RV gas pumps. After reading this thread I’m a lot more confident in getting gas from non-truck stop stations.

RE: Getting gas with long trailer?

Hi guys, I want to thank you one and all for your comments. I was afraid when I made the post I’d get something like “that is such a stupid question.” One thing that brought up the question is I was at Walmart the other day. Plenty of room to get in and plenty of head space. But you’d have to back out, something I’d not want to do in a busy place.

RE: Getting gas with long trailer?

Hi Lantley, I think that’s absolutely right. Know in advance where you want to stop to fill up and Google Earth it to make sure the place is set up right. Someone said earlier if push comes to shove you can always unhook. And that’s true, a fifth wheel makes it pretty easy. But far better to find a station where that’s not necessary.

RE: Getting gas with long trailer?

Our trailer is 42’ long and when we go out west we put in 400 mile days. With a 48 gallon tank we will have to get gas along the way, mostly on interstates. The newer stations seem to be set up better for RV’s. But what your saying if I understand you correctly. Even though you’ll block multiple pumps. You can get gas with the trailer attached right? You mentioned that a 40 foot gas truck can get into the station. But gas trucks don’t go to the pumps.

Getting gas with long trailer?

Hi guys, I looked on Utube and found diesel videos but no gas. Diesel is easy in that you can go to any truck stop, get in line and pump diesel. However, truck stops don’t have gas lanes so how do you fuel a gas truck? Certainly not unhook every time? I don’t ever remember being at a gas station and see a guy pulling a long trailer getting gas. So what’s the answer? And if you know of a video I’d love to see it. Thanks guys

RE: Can you jump your 5’er with your truck?

I DID NOT KNOW THAT!

RE: Can you jump your 5’er with your truck?

My unit has two 6 volt batteries, four 6 volt batteries actually. Hopefully the solar will keep the batteries up? But great to know the truck batteries could be used if necessary. Thanks guys

RE: Can you jump your 5’er with your truck?

I wasn’t sure you could jump a 6 volt batterie with a 12 volt battery?
