Floor bounce

We recently bought a 30’ ultra lite. It has power stab jacks for stabilizing but there is a lot of floor bounce even with heavy duty metal “between the tires” expandable chocks. I believe my best shot at getting rid of the floor bounce is supports or jacks mounted fore and aft of all 4 tires. I can pick some flip down tent trailer jacks up for $30 all four off craigslist. Do you think these would do the trick. They appear to be adjustable.

RE: Fireplace heater beeping

So I disassembled the unit and found the piezo. I carefully drilled out the back of it till the back came off. I saw a foil diaghram and removed it. Beeping is 100% gone. Reassembled and tested. Success

Fireplace heater beeping

We have a new Rockwood with a Titan electric fireplace heater. Every time you hit a button on the unit or the remote it beeps loudly. I've read online about disabling or removing the piezo speaker and wondering if anyone has done this. I assume this would void my warranty but I really don't care. It's driving the dog crazy.

wheel leveling chocks

I've seen a couple different brands of wheel leveling chocks. Andersen, Camco etc. Looking for some comments and experience with them. I know they can slip sometimes. The Camco seems much less expensive than the Andersen.

Hitch extension

I just got a new truck and trailer. The tailgate hits the power tongue jack if I try to lower it while hooked up to the trailer. On my old set-up I turned the power jack and that gave me enough clearance. This set-up needs more clearance than that would give me. I have a 2 1\2 inch receiver hitch with a 2inch insert. I'm thinking of buying a short 2 1\2 to 2 hitch extender. How would that affect my driveability and safety. I'm thinking it might give me the ability to turn an back up at sharper angles.

RE: Rockwood 2608WS

Well we ended up buying a 2019 2608BSD. So far we love it. I love the sturdy design of the pull down steps and we got the theater seating. However we do have an issue with the bedroom slide. Something broke and it doesn't come in straight unless I nudge the bed with my knee while my wife pushes the like switch. Seems to be common to have some issues with new units anymore.

RE: Rockwood 2608WS

I agree with Capital J. The 2018 WS has the pass thru storage and that's a major plus for me. Best exterior storage I've seen on a front kitchen trailer of this size. A hallway next to the bath steals space from a room, in this case the bathroom. Walk thru bathrooms maximize space. We just looked at a rear living Rockwood and I prefer the quality of Rockwood to Wilddcat Maxx and other brands in this price range. Not interested in the 2019 with the wasted floor space and loss of exterior storage

Rockwood 2608WS

We are looking at a 2018 Rockwood 2608WS. Just curious if anyone has this model and cares to comment or comment on Rockwood trailers in general. We have a Nash, built like a tank and hear lots bad stories about all brands quality these days.

RE: If you could design an RV...

This list is for travel trailers, but some are universal: 1. More exterior storage 2. Eliminate the skylight bubble in the shower (just another hole in the roof) 3. Tank sensor system that actually works 4. Quality mattress 5. Front window (we have one but almost nobody makes them anymore) 6.Entry steps that rest on the ground 7.Thicker paint on undercarriage to keep rust at Bay 8. Carpet is usually a bad idea as it stains too easily

RE: Front cap waxing?

Try shark hide. Google it. It's made for bare aluminum but does wonders on faded gel coat. Lasts about 2 years. Just wipe it on. I use it and all 4 sides of my painted aluminum trailer and of course on my aluminum boat.
