Thanks!
No leaks in that kind of rain is good.

Our microwave runs fine. No abnormal noises. At least that's a component which should be easy for the dealer to swap out.

Maybe the rollers on the ring under the glass turntable? If you have those rollers, try a dab of vegetable oil on each for lube?

I'm toying with the idea of upgrading from the 2005 Bigfoot that we use for road trips. A Larger Bigfoot or even an Airstream are on my list. Dropped in to our Jayco dealer yesterday and had a tour of the 26XD. Was really impressed.

My question is how do you handle sort trips into town or side trips with the 26XD? Now we just park our trailer and take off in the Tundra.

I know you could haul a Toad. Or pack up and take the whole unit to wherever. Any thoughts on this?

We normally stay in state parks. So far we've set up our itineraries to do the side trips on the way in or out of the park. Many parks have a small to medium sized camp store which carry camping and food items for those forgotten things. Some, like Myrtle Beach State Park, connect to the city's paved bike trails which allow biking to the grocery store, shopping and restaurants. And we can also pull our Shadow on a motorcycle trailer if we wish.

Hi LilBigfoot,


We looked into a toad, but for us, it just wasn't practical. When we looked into it, The cost of buying another small car, with insurance, maintenance, purchasing the tow gear, etc., just didn't make monetary sense. In addition, parking, maneuvering in gas stations, and backing up was more of a hassle than we wanted to take on.


When we stay in State Parks, we walk and bike, and if we have an extended stay in a Commercial campground, Enterprise comes out and get us, if we need a rental.


We've yet to find a place that we needed or wanted to be that the 26XD didn't fit in, and the parking lots at attractions usually have RV parking.


How we handled the issue isn't right for everybody, but with our budget, and the way we travel, it's right for us.


Happy and safe camping!

Sounds like you all are having a fun trip. I spent my first night out Saturday night. Small leak under kitchen sink found. TV was fine and some good football crossed the screen Microwave did fine as well. So far nothing major but it was a short trip. I did have a bad leak at the window behind sink when it rained at home but hasn't rained since for me to explore where/why. So I guess I need to think about a spare tire/carrier before I make my first real road trip?? Hope yall are moving on along with no more problems.

Hi Charlene,


Window leaks in the frameless windows are extremely unusual! I hope that it isn't coming from somewhere else.


The leak under the sink is often just caused by a loose connection where the drain pipe meets the sink. It may just need to be hand tightened... not unusual for those connections to loosen up during the first trip.


Good luck, and camp safe and have fun!!

I'm not concerned about the leak under the sink. I could see it. However the window concerns me. I'm gonna get the water hose out tomorrow and see if I can duplicate it. I'm hoping I just didn't shut it tightly and we had quite a blowing storm. We'll see tomorrow. I will say that my picture on Saturday night camping was as crisp as if I were at home on cable. I was happy. Just not sure what I'm gonna do about ESPN on New Year's Day when the Ole Miss Rebels play
