RE: Atwood Gas Oven Pilot Lighter Won't Spark

I don’t think they be spark knob is for the oven pilot flame. I’ve had to manually light ours on every trailer we’ve owned. The spark is for the stovetop.

Fuses ok? Yes the motor is still humming.

RE: Hunting camp

Here is our camp in West Texas. Been hunting for 30 years. This is our first camp that is completely off grid. We are hunting in the mountains and are at least 3 miles from the nearest road and further from the next camp. We run a generator and have an on demand water pump from our storage tank. Setup our lights and a cleaning station. Pretty much call the comforts of a regular campsite. Really neat country out here but pretty wild. We have seen 3 mountain lions so far this year with two being less than 100 yrds from our camp.

RE: Filtering water for my travel trailer

The camco I line is fine IMO. At least I have noticed a difference in using them for a couple years.

RE: Slide stopped working

Check the gear it may have a shear pin that did what it was suppose to do. That’s kinda what I was thinking. The slide motor/gears is located under the couch that is built into the slide. I can’t figure out how to access it yet. It’s the jack knife style sofa and I can’t seem to get under it to see it.

Slide stopped working

Hi all, on my 2012 Jayco jay flight 28bhs I had the slide stop working this weekend while breaking camp. I was pulling the slide in and right at the point it fully closed I didn’t hear the tell tale clicking that indicates the slide is all the way in. Luckily the slide was in when it stopped but I’m trying to figure out what happened. I can hear the motor spinning and the slide looks like it is still on the track. There is a good bit of play in the slide now when I rock it gently back and forth. Thanks in advance.

RE: How to camp with electric only

If you can’t get away from the heavy water usage get a water tank for your truck. I have a 65 gallon leg tank with a transfer pump mounted on it that we use to fill our trailer and/or off grid water tank setup at our hunting camp. I haul water from home along with the trailer if we are going to be out an extended amount of time.

Shower head bracket/holder

I’m looking for a shower head holder or bracket that I could attach to the ladder on the back of our TT. I want to utilize the outdoor shower but be able to have the shower head fixed above me attached to the ladder. Looking online I only see mounts that attach flush to the wall. Does anyone make one that could clamp on to the ladder? It’s the standard rv type head. Thanks.

RE: Slide - In or Out

I can think of zero harm in leaving them in when not in use. There is variables that can’t be avoided when they are left out. Simple as that.

RE: Connecting Satellite Thru Outside Jack

I assume that the outside cable jack passes through a box with various switches (for roof antenna, cable jack, etc). The signal to the Dish Tailgater cannot go through that box. What I did was to look at the lines in and out of the box (what is it called, anyway?) and find the the cable jack input. Unplug the cable jack line from the box's input. Use a short extension coax (if neccessary) to connect the Dish receiver directly to the line from the cable jack. This is what I did on my old trailer. Just bypassed the box that had the splitter or whatever in it, bought a single coax wall plate and wired it directly. Problem solved.

RE: Dish TV

another element of your decision is if you want the equipment bolted to your roof or if you want it portable we opted for the portable version We did too. Is way more versatile and gets used for more then one function.

RE: Dish Network Play Maker Sat Antenna Problems

Does your trailer have a dedicated satellite jack on the outside or are you running it through the cable coax? If you aren’t on a dedicated satellite coax this could be the problem. Well, the problem for me was on the inside where the antenna/cable meet behind the outlet and merge into one coax to connect the TV. I had to disconnect the antenna wire and directly wire the cable inlet to the coax. That solved my problem. The splitter can cause issues with satellite signal.

RE: Dish TV

I have a dish tailgater but have dish service at home. If you already have dish service it costs 6 or 7$/month with no contract, no brainer if you already have the service. We use this in conjunction with WI-FI from our phones to the smart tv to stream Netflix, etc.

RE: Wind barrier for breezy nights suggestions please...

Park your car upwind side of the fire.

RE: Winterizing versus Heating RV Interior

Don’t do anything based on the forecast you provided. Temps have to be really really cold for extended times. Your chart shows it only drops to 32, and only then for two hours before it warms up again. Leave it alone, sleep well. This^ even a couple hours in the 20s isn’t going to wreck everything. When you have a hard freeze for 12+ hours is when I’d start worrying. I forgot to winterize my trailer and it got down to 24 degrees one night but was only below freezing for 3-4 hours. No problem there.

RE: How much do dealers pay for the RV's they sell

I’d venture to guess that a majority of a dealerships profits come from service and not new sales. I can see them selling at a lower price and making it up on the back end with service. Your correct there is variation and different margins, however $2000.00 gross a unit seems awfully low for the dealership is to be profitable. Sure, I wasn’t speaking on a specific $ figure. For lower end units a 2k profit would be plenty. For the higher end units that number is probably closer to 5k.

RE: Toilet choices, plastic vs. porcelain.

There is zero reason not to get porcelain. It’s better all around.

RE: Steps vs side step bars

Get some Nfab bars. They are high and tight to the frame but still offer a nice step and look good. The 3 step are better but cost more. This is my 2500. 4wheel parts ran a sale on the Nfabs late last year, these cost me 205$ picked up in their store. Direct bolts to the factory frame holes.

RE: 3x3" receiver hitch!

Rex, yes the 2.5 to 2” square adapters or similar. They’re not a good thing for heavy use. Is there a reason the manufacturer don’t mention that when providing them? I’ve had zero issues with mine but just curious.
