RE: Add Awning To Slide?

that last picture ( reflection) is what "I" was ASSUMING the OP wanted.... I have had that additional awning on 2 of my RV's and the additional covered area is awesome!!! NOT a traditional slide topper, has nothing to do with the TOP of the SLIDES.... And to touch on the black awning and heat.... the awning does not add any additional heat to the shade area under from I can tell... I wonder if the original OP wants to clear this debate up or not? Slide topper or awning.... 2 very different animals...

RE: Add Awning To Slide?

How did this discussion move FROM adding an additional awning, to adding slide toppers ?? Unless I am wrong, the OP specifically asked about adding an awning to his slide?? Or am I reading it wrong? quote - " I have a 2015 Jay Flight 33RLDS & I'd like to add an awning to the door side slide. Has anyone ever done this? Is it even possible? Thanks."

RE: Best way to sell the coach

My buddy just sold his 12 year old TT for 3k more than it was worth on Facebook marketplace... AND it was the 1st person to come and look... within 12 hours of posting He had 6 or 7 others that wanted to come look that same night... I would do the same with my 2017......except..................... To order new takes anywhere from who knows to who knows. One dealer says minimum of 20 to 24 weeks, another says a year +, none will guarantee anything. So sell out and possibly not have one come March or April. No dealer I can find will hold any pricing while your waiting, even after hand money (NON REFUNDABLE BTW) is down should the manufacturer throw out a price increase, which they are doing quite regular now days. New rigs of all flavors are up 30% to as much as 50% above pre Covid values. Supposedly RV Wholesalers will hold the pricing once you commit, but I have not seen the actual verbiage or document. Well then, don't sell yours ….. The OP asked for suggestions on selling an RV... PS - no reason to work with a dealer that will not honor pricing on a signed order... just my opinion.... BTW- great name - LET'S GO BRANDON ! ! ! ! :C:B

RE: Add Awning To Slide?

Not 100% sure about your Jayco, but from what I understand it needs to be done during the build.. I was told my a manufacturer a few years back that they NEED to "pack out" behind the slide for the awning rails to mount to for support.... That may have been a sales pitch..."you can't get it unless you buy the overpriced option from us." Usually, they build the main box the same and just bolt on the extras. Obviously, check to makes sure there is a stud you can attach too but it's unlikely they built it out differently. Thought that at first, but it was the manufacturer rep.. she tossed in the 2nd awning when dealing with her but we had to decide before the build... so, no cost to us

RE: Anybody else have bad issues with RV Value Mart?

everybody email, texts, whatever.. NOBODY ever just calls and speaks face to face anymore.. Nobody just Shows up and looks.... give them a call and ask about it... strike up a conversation....Good things may come Not sure its worth calling it a bad issue?

RE: Nice Story fellow RVer

we frequent the local Cracker Barrel when the wife does not feel like cooking... Over the past few months ( PRE PANDEMIC ) there was an elder man always sitting by himself eating... Always proudly wearing his Korean War Veteran hat with his pins.. Each time I would see him there, I would give his waitress money for his meal, and she was told to just say " Thank You" for his service.. I planned to sit next to him our next visit and talk, that never happened.. The pandemic hit, the place stopped serving sit downs, and now he has not been back... I have asked the server I now know there and he has not been back .. I sure hope the old guy made it through this [email protected]

RE: A tale of two trailers, or prices are thru the roof.

We just took delivery of 3 2022 Super Duties ( daughter, bro in law, best bud ) , I picked up a 2021 for our Cleveland office, and I also ordered a 2022 for our York office ( so that's 5 total ) and averaged $7k - $8k or so below MSRP with no factory incentives...

RE: Never saw this before!

I am SURE that if any RV'r passes a weigh station without pulling in they will not be chased... Those LEO's are not concerned with RV's... Not the slightest bit.. That is JUST MY OPINION . .

RE: Anyone dribble their gray ?

If needed we have done this as well.. Like most stated, grey water is just dish/wash water and is not damaging anything.

RE: Winterizing Residential Fridge

When my RV was brand new, the first winter I blew air through the fridge line and kept it disconnected after that.. We buy ice and dump it into the freezer as we do not drink the campground water.

RE: Barker Automatic valve openers

For $300 I think I'll stick to easy and simple. :) And spend the extra money on fuel. I'm leaning that way..... BUT. fuel for my liver ! just tired of the old, push/pull cables binding

RE: Purchasing a RV in another state

You will ned a temporary tag to use for transport home. Best is to call a local tag/dmv for Mississippi and ask them.

RE: Barker Automatic valve openers

Personally I go with the KISS concept, so I'd stick with cable. JMO of course. Thats my way of thinking as well… I’m definitely “old school” … but been looking for “EASIER” but not at the expense of reliability .
