I made it back home yesterday afternoon, only to find more work to do. Had to mow two lawns, and still haven't unhooked my Jayco from my Dodge. But that's ok. It'll be a quick escape when I decide to go camping next time.
I found a minor issue with the fresh water tanks. New, I think for 2011, the 26BH TTs have a pair of water tanks instead of just one, with a total of over 90 gallons capacity. The pump intake is in the front tank, and there's a bypass between the two tanks that allows the water from the rear to flow to the front tank.
Problem is, that the bypass fittings are positioned on the sides of the tanks, and when all the water is pumped out of the front, there's still a couple of inches left in the rear. I ran the pump until the faucets sputtered, so I figured that the tanks were empty and it was ok to travel. But I noticed a lot more sway in the trailer when pulling, and after thinking about it I checked the tanks for water. And that's when I found the leftover water in the rear tank. It was sloshing from side to side, causing the sway.
I drained all the water out through the low point drains, which solved the sway. And looking at the plumbing, I realized that if I connected the low point drain hoses (with fittings at the bottom of the tanks), I'd be able to pump out all the water from both tanks.
I talked to the service manager where I bought the TT, and he said his shop wouldn't have a problem with my tinkering with the drain plumbing, but advised me to keep the original plumbing on hand, to install in case I had to take the trailer to another dealer for service.
Other than that and the fan speed problem, my maiden voyage was a success. Next time I head out, I won't be working during the days, so I'll be able to enjoy the camping experience a little more.
Have a good one,
