RE: Nasty, Nasty Electrical Issue

Can you come by my house? I want to be your friend too.

RE: Campsight electric outlets

Just buy the 50x30 and use the 50 when available. They're usually in better condition

RE: First trip and first major failure

Based on this forum that never happens to Ram, only Ford. At least to hear the Ram guys tell it anyway.

RE: Camp Site Terminology

There is no standard definition other than some improvement was done to designate it a camp site.

Nice trade, photos please

RE: Buying today or tomorrow

Those are still big trailers even for the truck spec'd for max towing. I second the integrated WD/sway control system, I think you will need it.

If it's parked in the sun have you done anything to mitigate heat gain? Is the filter clean? Are you running it in constant high fan to prevent icing? Is it icing up?

Not as uncommon as you would think.

RE: Age restrictions

10 years seems to be the cutoff but if it looks good most likely won't be an issue except at the most uppity places.

RE: New to the forums, saying hello

Welcome to the forum form Florida. RV choice is a very personal one. Look at many before making your decision. If you're coming to Florida I can help. No experience with the Midwest.

RE: New guy needs help

Your tongue weight will likely reach 1000 lbs or better and this trailer may be a handful for your vehicle if you do not research this carefully and make good choices. As mentioned by another poster you need to find the GVWR and ULVW of the trailer on the attached sticker and plan from there. Your vehicle payload and towing information should be available from Ford's towing guide for that year. The vehicle rating will be impacted by rear axle ratio/motor size/options etc. At the very least (if your vehicle can tow this much) you will need a good WD hitch with integrated sway control. Do your research and come back if you have more questions. Some of us can help you with this.

RE: Jayco Hummingbird CCC---is this a deal breaker?

I went in tonight to work on a deal for a new Jayco Hummingbird 17RK. It has the perfect layout for us as we re-enter the RVing world after becoming empty nesters. Then a bit of snooping caused me to slow down. I thought I would check with the expert opinions here to see if I am interpretting correctly. The sticker on the side says a cargo carrying capacity of 646# should never be exceeded. On the same sticker, it says a full tank of water will weigh 262#. We plan a lot of dry camping and this leaves only 384# of cargo left before exceeding limits. For a light weekend, this is reasonable, but for anly longer routes we may take (or if our college daughter decides to come with for a weekend!) it seems that there is little cargo carrying margin left. What am I missing? Why would a builder as experienced as Jayco build something so close to the edge of the cargo carrying capacity? Deal breaker for me for sure

RE: Jayco Hummingbird CCC---is this a deal breaker?

One thing people forget: the cargo capacity is as valid when not moving as when moving. Include the weight of the occupants, too. I will disagree with this, just not the case

RE: Propane and electric at the same time? Hot water heater??

I use both every time we shower

RE: Cherokee 2011 26bh TT Problem

We're going to need more information. length/width/thickness? Where did they come from if you know? A photo would be extremely helpful.

RE: Long Key vs Curry Hammock

55 looks bigger on Campsitephoto.com but 15 looks shadier/narrow. Site 55 Site 15 Been several years since I was there. Heading over to Rainbow Springs on July 10 for a week.

RE: Keystone Fail-Sky River RV Fail

Doesn't even look like the correct Dicor sealant to me. Eternabond would have been a much better choice for that.

RE: Long Key vs Curry Hammock

The bathrooms are too eco friendly, fancy composting toilets but you wouldn't know it without going in one and using it. Not my preference at all. Like all FSP's they are on this insane idea to return them as close to possible to their original natural state which means no mowing, no insect control, etc. The lack of shade can be brutal if it's hot. The swimming area was lousy, Long key was much more enjoyable in my estimation. Neither have sewer hook ups so that can create issues. Pennekamp upgraded to FHU a few years ago and the photos look nice. If I had to pick one it would be Pennekamp or Long Key.

RE: Long Key vs Curry Hammock

Been a few years since I was down there but the CG was nice when I was there. The swimming area wasn't great and the CG management was a little anal about some things but the CG was in good order. I have to admit I liked Long Key better as it was a more rustic laid back atmosphere with better water views. There is no shade to speak of and the brush blocks most of the water views from campsites.
