RE: Atwood Furnace Problems

So I’m having the same problem as the OP was having... I have replaced the circuit board, sail switch and igniter... I also replaced the gas regulator, nothing to do with the heat issue just didn’t like the one that was on there. It’s an Atwood 8535. I took the screen part out where the gas flowes through, there was some rust blocking a few places, wire brush cleared that up. I put everything back together and still having the same problem... fan comes on, igniter lights and the heat blows briefly and kicks off, repeats two more times and shuts down, light blinking 3 times. I don’t know what else it could be??

RE: How much solar do I need?

They plan to be on the grid at some point, there’s 4/10 of a mile through neighboring property to deal with and I’m not up and all those details. There will be a generator involved in the set up and the solar panels will not be mounted on the roof of the camper, some type of stand to keep them off the ground. The biggest issue is going to be when the camper is not occupied in below freezing temps to keep anything from freezing (like keeping the t-stat on 35-45) and having enough battery reserve to keep the fan running for what could be a couple of days between visits to the property. Obviously outside temps will play a factor in any situation, just looking for ideas on how much solar will be best, there’s room for a few more batteries as they aren’t mounted on the trailer but in a box right next to it.

RE: No heat

Thank you for the replies. I’m still without heat after checking what I can see, batteries are fine and propane is good, wire connections that I can reach are tight...it’s got to be something internal. I’ve been looking at the removal and it does not appear to be to difficult, my concern is how is the exterior vent attached and also how the blower is attached to the duct work?

How much solar do I need?

I’m posting for a friend. Let’s say you have 6-6 volt golf cart batteries and looking for enough solar power to keep the basics in a 32’ trailer going through the winter months. The camper is being used as temporary living space for hunting and the building of a cabin. Lights, heater, fridge water pump will be used, not much in the way of electronics or microwave. They’re trying to keep from having to winterize during off times so the biggest thing is to keep the heat on during down times. Is there a particular kit or package you would recommend? Thanks you

No heat

Camping this weekend and it’s a bit chilly... went to turn the heat on and nothing! The fan kicks on for a minute or two and then shuts off. All the other gas fixtures are working properly. I crack the line open at the heater and there’s gas going to it. We just purchased the camper before Labor Day, it’s a 2014 Jayco Jayflight 32 BHDS. I’m not sure of the heater manufacture but the exhaust on the outside is a single round vent. Any suggestions?

RE: Monitor Panel

Problem solved. I sent an email to KIB the manufacturer of the panel last night. I was advised to check for a bad ground, took the four screws out removed the panel and tightened up the connector on the white ground wire, everything is working perfect.

Monitor Panel

Just came home with another travel trailer. 2015 Jayflight 32 BHDS. It has a KIB monitor panel with the switches for water pump, electric and gas water heater operation. All of the switches function, water pump runs and gas fires on the water heater. Here’s my issue, none of the lights work. The switch lights do not come on and none of the lights come on when I press the tank levels or battery level. Anyone have a suggestion on what it could be. Everything else in the trailer operates as it should.

RE: Fiberglass Nose fading

All good information, thank you. We decided to go in another direction.. buy one without a nose cap. Just brought home a 2015 Jayflight 32BHS

Fiberglass Nose fading

Howdy there, So we’re looking into buying a new (to us) travel trailer. In the past few days we’ve looked at a 2016 Keystone Laredo and a 2015 Tracer, both had the fiberglass or plastic nose and both were faded, discolored and the graphics were peeling badly. These two trailers are less than 4 years old, is this common? We realize buying a used camper you have to except some aging, our 2008 Surveyor which is all fiberglass is still in excellent shape, the stickers are 100% in tact. Is there some way to bring the color back to life? We realize the graphics are what they are, stickers.. but what was brown is now a light grayish color with streaks running from the top, just makes it look old and at $20+ thousand dollars we think should look better. Any suggestions???

RE: Carolina Pines RV Resort Myrtle Beach

I Understand you disappointment however a place to stay without full amenities beats no place to stay at all. At this point if you can't find anything else why not just stay there? x2 considering the area and how crowded rv parks, hotels, and condos are there in the summer Due to the lies and mistrust we have received from these people we would never stay here, I can pull the slides and awning in my friends driveway and use his pool and save $70.00 a night. We were paying for an experience they are failing to deliver.

Carolina Pines RV Resort Myrtle Beach

Where to begin with the disgust I have for this park that hasn’t opened yet. Months ago we saw an ad in Trailer Life Magazine about this new park opening near Myrtle Beach. We made reservations back in February for this 4th of July, 3 campers, 12 people and one cabin for friends coming from Florida. We’ve kept up with the progress through Facebook, lots of bad reviews had started showing up about the progress of the park. We made a call about a month ago and were assured everything with the exception of the lazy river (phase 2 project) would be up and running by the July 1st opening. Yesterday we saw a post from someone that was also concerned about the progress of the park and took a ride to see for themselves. After reading their account of the lack of progress they saw and what was nowhere near complete, we decided to make a call. We called the direct number to the park and were told that we were on a list of people to be called about our reservation. It was explained to us that most of the amenities in the park would not be ready by opening day on July 1st. We were offered two options, a coupon for 2 free nights within a year or a full refund of our $365 deposit. So, with the information about what wasn't going to be open we decided to cancel. We were traveling with 8 kids in our group who were so excited about water slides and bowling and golf, none of which are ready. Now here we are 2 weeks from the holiday weekend and can’t find a single place with room for our group. These people had to have know these things weren’t going to be ready in time months ago. Thanks SUN RESORTS for ruining our summer vacation.

Residential Fridges

So we’ve been looking to upgrade to a newer travel trailer and have seen a few models we like, one in particular has a residential fridge. Now we don’t travel full time but we do make some two week trips during the year and were wondering what or how do you maintain a fridge that doesn’t run on propane while traveling? There’s little to no room for a large bank of batteries.

RE: Our Tundra

I have a 2009 Tundra with nearly 130K miles on it with the original shocks and coil overs. Been thinking of replacing them but dealer says that they are still fine. No airbags on mine and towing heavy. find squat is around 2" with WDH set up properly. Glad you are happy with your Tundra too. Makes a good TV IMHO. I didn’t add the airbags to correct the squat, though now there is none. It’s truly a much better ride with the camper in tow, took the shock out of the rough roads.

RE: Our Tundra

What made you go with Moog over Fox, King, or some of the other brands? If I may ask, what did you pay for the airbag system? Honestly I went with MOOG because of the reliability and quality of the name, plus the excellent reviews. The Firestone Ride Rite airbags were $300 and a breeze to instal, didnt even remove the rear tires or spare. The Air Lift Wireless One air compressor was $230 from Amazon, the unit I bought was discounted because of what they called cosmetic damage and open packaging, I found absolutely nothing wrong with it. I dropped the spare tire and mounted the unit inside the opening of the spare so it adds in protection from the elements. Because it’s wireless there are no hoses or wires going to the cab, just a remote velcroded to the dash.

Our Tundra

So just before Thanksgiving we were getting things ready for our 3,500+ mile trek to Texas with trailer in tow. I deceived to replace the shocks on all four corners and I’m happy to report what an incredible difference in ride quality. In the front I went with MOOG coil overs and Bilstein shocks in the rear. Our truck is also equipped with Firestone Ride-Rite air springs and a wireless one onboard air compressor. With the trailer loaded with the necessities for our journey I found just 28 psi in the air springs kept the “ shock” out of ride from our great interstate system. On a side note, when traveling through Louisiana (we were north on the way to Texas and south on the way out heading to Florida) if you’re towing anything don’t eat a big meal, the roads are so terrible you might not be able to keep it down. Happy Travels
