RE: TT Steps

Thinking they are bent. Will gets clamps and see if I can get them back where they belong.

TT Steps

My Grey Wolf has 2 set of stairs, main entrance and bathroom. The main entrance are two steps that swing up into the doorway when not in use. The bath room stairs fold under the trailer. Problem: The main stairs have a very funky angle, stairs are not level. If you adjust them to get rid of the funky angle and make them level then you cannot easily close the door. Am I missing something when adjusting them? We like bathroom stairs but don't really want that to be our main entrance. Thanks Paul

RE: Niagera Falls

The wife and I spent a week there, didn't camp, and did something different everyday. You can probably do a different falls/river activity 4-5 days. The Queens highway has wineries at just about every exit on the way to Toronto. Toronto is worth a day visit and is a short drive. There is a casino. Old Fort Niagara, 300 years old. Anyway, we spent a week and didn't do everything.

RE: Beginner Trailer Leveling Questions

Having a trailer supported on the far corners is absolutely incorrect because you will stress the frame to the maximum. I agree with this. I over did my stabilizers just a little bit and couldn't easily close my bathroom door.

RE: Beginner Trailer Leveling Questions

I use a Tire Changing Ramp for changing tires on a horse trailer and it works great, no jacks. My thought was this would work for the TT. Any thoughts on using this?

RE: Backup camera option

I went with the Furion and I am happy with it. You have to at least keep your running lights on for the system to work while travelling. It is nice seeing what is behind you and for making sure all is clear when changing lanes. Mounting and setup was VERY EASY. Some Amazon reviews stated it would lose connection when travelling at interstate speeds. The model I got has never lost connection and I don't even move the antenna on the video end at all. I leave it in its storage position. I have a 35' TT and F250 with 8' bed the the camera and the video unit are a good distance apart. This is what I got: Furrion FOS43TASF Vision S Wireless Vehicle Observation System with 4.3-inch Monitor and Rear Sharkfin Camera

RE: Should I make reservations or wing it?

I agree that the trip to OP mentions is not going to be fun. I drove with my son from SC to SD for a move in a truck pulling a car. 1st day was to get to Kansas City in early evening after leaving SC around 5AM. We didn't arrive until 2AMish. When you factor in road construction and hills we just kept losing momentum. It was depressing to watch the ETA on the GPS keep getting further out. You also need to factor in the size of your unit. The bigger it is the harder it may be to find available spots at campgrounds.

RE: Stand-alone GPS or smartphone?

I always used Tom Tom standalones but when it died I decided to test some Cell Phone android apps. I tried google maps, Waze (owned by google) and Tom Tom android app. I chose Tom Tom apps. The full map is downloaded to the phone so losing cell phone signal is not a problem. My problem is Waze and G-Maps are fine for a pre-planned trip, but if you are on a whim and want to start something NOT planned and have no signal, you are out of luck, that is not a problem with the Tom Tom app as the map is on your phone. Tom Tom is not free, it is $23 a year and they update the maps 4x a year. Sometimes you get what you pay for which in this case $23 is a small price for a very dependable GPS. Also better than the $100s you spend on a stand alone. I have also like the maps on Tom Tom, so I also get what I am used to. Good lane guidance and map zooms in when upcoming turns coming giving you a good view of what you need to do.

RE: Travel Trailer Insurance Increase

When we bought our camper they pushed HARD for us to get the insurance thru Good Sams. Got stuck in a conference call with an guy. We ended up doing our insurance with our agent for home/auto and everything else, far better deal. Actually, the insurance push was the only thing they really irritated us when we bought the camper. We were not prepared for that and getting full court press from some agent on the phone while our salesman disappeared. We paid cash which really helped since we didn't have the go thru all the financing ****.

RE: 2nd Trip and Major Issues

Final Word from the OP Some of you questioned my major issues. Wife can't use kithcen sink = MAJOR ISSUE. ;) Can't drive down the highway with awning out = MAJOR ISSUE: :S Wife survived! Camper goes to see the doctor this Saturday. After two trips, I have a list of six things I want addressed. What I have learned, the documentation that comes with campers isn't very good. For instance, with the awning, I have a brochure from the company that made it but no documentation on how to work it manually. I will give a shout out to Jimmy at Camping World in Asheville, NC. It was my discussions with him that I learned enough to get it working again. He also returned a call after a voice mail I left him. I did not buy from them but they were the closest Camping World to me. I have been camping all my life as far back as I can remember. I am one of 7 kids and that was an affordable vacation for my parents. My parents had one tent and the kids would sleep in another, all 7 on cots. After all the kids moved out the parents went to a popup which I inherited when they decided they were too old to do that anymore. Had major ceiling floods towards the end and sink sprayed under the cabinets every time it was turned on. Redid all the plumbing and had to put new wood in cabinet area due to water damage. First time we used stove there were numerous little flames where there shouldn't have been any. Paid some to replace the gas lines and stove. Sold it at a time when the roof really needed to be replaced and din't want to deal with it. When back to a tent and decided to move up again to a TT. So I don't consider myself a newbie. New to TTs, yes. The only real major issue was the awning. If I had adequate instructions I could have dealt with it. So while it is seeing the doctor I will ask how to MANUALLY work the thing. Anyway, all is good and we had a great trip and plan on having many more.

RE: 2nd Trip and Major Issues

I am on city water. I figure there is a blockage somewhere.

RE: 2nd Trip and Major Issues

If water isn't getting then in the first place.... Got shroud off of motor on awning. Jiggle the wires and it started working.

RE: 2nd Trip and Major Issues

It is a pullout that does spray or regular stream. Took the nozzle completely off, no aerator, just hose. Still a dribble, but it worked when we first setup. No problem in shower.

2nd Trip and Major Issues

1. Awning extended fine. Bad weather later today so I want to retract. Hit the button, nothing, motor does not fire up. Did not over extend. 2. Water worked great at hookup. Now, all water works except kitchen, it dribbles. Took head off, no blockage.

RE: Furrion DVD

The Disney disc in question is a DVD. The menu runs, the preview runs, but when you select Play the movie that is when the code flies up. Again, it is set to Adult and the default password of 0000 does no good.

Furrion DVD

Our Furrion entertainment unit will not play Disney movies. Comes up with a security code that must be entered and it will not accept it. So I can watch Clint Eastwood shoot people up but not a Disney movie. I went into the settings and the rating is set to Adult and the passcode is 0000. Since it is set to Adult not sure why the unit doesn't like Disney. I don't think it is a XXX rated Disney movie, but since I am set to Adult, if it was XXX Beauty and the Beast I should be able to watch it.

RE: 2019 Grey Wolf Shake Out

Finally had time this past weekend to pull out a ladder and study the situation. Where the water was coming down is where the two gutter pieces meet, and there was a gap. Put a little sealant in there so this should take care of the problem and the water should travel down the gutter. Will probably do the other side as well after I close the slide out back up.

RE: 2019 Grey Wolf - Outdoor Speakers

Dealer confirmed that reversed wiring a good possibility. So I will take them off and see.

2019 Grey Wolf - Outdoor Speakers

On our maiden trip discovered that the outdoor speakers sound really bad. Indoor ones are great. The outdoor ones are tinny and static sounding. Really not listenable accept to drown out loud talking neighbors. Is this typical or a bad installation?
