RE: Battery Issues, Connections?

Ha! I just looked under my butane tanks where the battery cables were headed and found a large switch , On/Off for Battery. I turned the switch to On and guess what? My hitch now works. You are correct and I guess I'm still a novice.

Battery Issues, Connections?

I took my TT in for an A/c Issue and they put in a new 1300 A/C. I have a new Rockport with a 1500 and a 1300 A/c. Problem is my hitch jack no longer works unless I'm plugged into the truck or shore power. I had the trailer plugged in since I cam home so I figured it was getting a trickle charge. The dealer must have unhooked something when he changed out the A/C unit. I thought it was a dead battery but I put a meter on it and the battery is fully charged. I can't reach him today because they are closed but will call him as soon as they are open. Any ideal where I should start looking?

Galveston camp grounds.

We just returned from a trip to Galveston with our Travel Trailer. We booked Jamaica Beach for a week and through some kind of a mix up were only given 6 days. This didn't work for us so we spent one night there on them and left. This park is a zoo and I hated the place. Everyone was on top of each other. We moved down the road to the new KOA and had some space. It is a ways out of town but the beach and open area suited us much better. I will say the Mgr. at Jamaica was a good guy and took care of my complaint and satisfied me. This park wasn't for me but it might suit you.

My A/C Unit Sings

I have a new Rockwood Travel Trailer with two Coleman A/C Units, 1500 front and 1300 unit rear. The front unit is quiet but the rear unit whines when the A/C kicks in. Is this normal? Its very disturbing when trying to sleep. What would cause this noise?

RE: 2 nights required

A few years ago we traveled with another couple in our respective rvs. We wanted an overnight stay in a La. state park. The park had plenty of openings but they made us call in to a number off site that charged us for making a reservation. What a rip off.

Trouble shooting a furnace?

The butane furnace on an older travel trailer isn't working. The fan blows but I do not hear the auto start clicking. This belongs to my Wife's nephew who is living in the travel trailer. Don't all of the trailers have an auto igniter? Is it easy to replace?

RE: Slide problem on possible purchase

I have a friend who bought a Mercedes camper van with slide. The slide kept coming off the track. After two years of fighting and going through various warrantee problems, he finally sold it. No one was able to fix it. Don't buy!

RE: Finally had enough with Atwood electric jacks

I recently purchased a new Rockwood travel trailer an d=one of the options was the electrotonic jacks. I declined to buy them fearing problems. Did I screw up? I don't mind leveling with the standard jacks.

Best mouse trap?

I left my travel trailer at a repair shop for a couple of weeks in order to fix some scrape marks I put on the left rear side. When going into my compartments I found evidence of Mice, Turds and a couple of broken wild nuts. We never leave any food in the trailer when not in use. I have had bad luck using glue traps because I've never been able to get them to work. A neighbor came by with the larger rat glue trap and said this is the way to go. He told me the small glue traps are too light and they will not get the job done. Just put one tiny dab of peanut butter in the middle of the rat glue trap, that's all. I baited two of them along with two more regular traps baited with peanut butter. Two days later I have not caught anything but after cleaning up I do not see any turds. I know others who swear baiting with a small bit of flower. Now all I have to do is figure out how they got in. The weather warmed recently and I figure they left the trailer no doubt looking for food. What do yo use?

RE: Branson

We also liked the RV park by Branson Landing. Close to shopping and eating. Easy in and out.

Repairing damage to fibrglass.

Today I raked the left rear of my new travel trailer and put a few larges gouges in it as I slid by a post. Its going to take a pro to fix it. I have done the small repairs on my older trailer but body work is beyoned my ability. It will need filling , sanding and painting. Do dealers have body men that can handle this type of repair? I'm a thousand miles from my dealer at the present. It sure feels ugly when you mess up a new toy.

Need tires on my Ram Tow Vehicle.

I have a 2016 Ram 1500 with Hemi that is 4X4. I love the truck and thus far I've towed my older trailer with the stock Wranglers. My new TT is a Rockport Ultralite at around 6500 LBS. The truck tire size is P275/60R20. I've been looking at Coopers, General Grabbers and Hankook. So far so good on towing with the old Wranglers but I'm going to take a long trip and want a decent set. Do I need something special to tow or will any LT tire work? What do you like?

Wanted, Snowbird park in Big Bend area.

We are usually either in Rockport of Galveston but want to give the Mission Texas area a try this year. Hopefully things will open up. My wife loves games, dancing, ballroom and line, socials, etc. We also like good eating out nearby. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Do any of the new TTs come with Surge Protectors?

I just bought a new (2021) Rockwood Ultra Lite travel trailer. Do the new trailers have a built in surge protector? I have a message into the factory but have not heard back. I understand the problems moving up to 50 amp from my former 30 amp unit could necessitate getting one. Without starting a riot, which one do you prefer on a 50 amp trailer?
