Got the B+ out of heated storage after two years about two weeks ago. New battery, new generator carb, antifreeze and temp sender all needed. Plan on a 2-3 day trip before putting back in storage for winter. No use last summer due to both of us having surgeries. Will move to new storage facility, this fall closer to where we summer, with in and out privileges.

I had a fuel shut off installed for the generator so I can run the carb dry and fog the intake like we did our boats for 25 years. Seafoam did not keep the carb from gumming up while in storage.
What chassis is your Model 213 sitting on? The reason I ask is our Chevy 211-S sits in a metal shed when not used from about late September to middle May and so far has not been a problem. Fires right up. Chassis battery is new in November 2010 and house battery on October 2004. However, the house battery had to be replaced this year. The generator does not get much use, but it is run until the carb is dry.


2004 Chevrolet series 3500 Express Chassis. Chassis battery was new in April 2012 when purchased, since original had to be jumped at seller's location. Have 2 AGM house batteries installed May 2014. 1st set installed in April 2013 before an Alaska trip. Those AGM batteries were destroyed over the next winter by me leaving an 800 watt inverter on, completely draining the batteries and causing them to bulge, would not accept a charge at all. Our generator has 55 hours on the meter, runs great now, hope it does next spring.

Teachers Pet - Well after reading more about your battery situation, I guess it has not been so terrible after all. And the Chevy chassis we both have should be comparable.

Got the B+ out of storage today for a trip next week to my family reunion in Mississippi. Everything has worked great so far, no need for assistance to start, tires were up as were the AGM batteries. Had the propane tank filled and getting ready to put trunk on rear, then will fill the water tank. The generator fired right up after I turned on the fuel shut off I had CoachCare install last fall. Ran it for close to two hours with the AC on high.

Our Phaeton has been at our local service center, where they are trying to find a replacement for a broken Atwood Leveleg, which is obsolete. Might be spending $$$$ for a set of Bigfoot or HWH jacks shortly.

Glad everything started up like it should.
Have a safe trip.

Try using Good Sam portal.

Equalizer Systems are used on Entegra and other Jayco products. They were used on Travel Supreme before Jayco. My GS had jacks and slides from them.

Made the 1900 mile trip for my family reunion without a hitch other than a $10.00 repair to the generator tailpipe. Had to replace the final 1 1/8" tailpipe hanger and clamp to muffler. Saw that it had disconnected from the muffler and rubber support on the hanger was torn in Camping World's parking lot in Bowling Green KY. Good thing didn't loose it and it didn't drag on the road. Of course Camping World didn't have the parts needed. Nor did any of the local auto parts stores, bought parts at Bunkhouse RV in Red Bay AL.

Always good when a trip ends with minimum problems.
