We love our 2015 195RB, it tows very well behind our 2014 Ford Flex. Our only problem is the LP pressure regulator, when the gas bottle valve is opened it takes about 3 hours before we can use any gas appliance.

try cracking the valve on the bottle slowly , some have said they have a check valve and when the system thinks it has a leak I can shut that valve on the regulator

We had the same problem. Seemed like if we turned the tank on more then really slowly nothing gas would work for hours. When we took our 195rb in for warranty repair of the front window water leak and this issue they replaced the propain tank. We haven't confirmed the repair as camper is put up for the winter

so far so good

We've been living in it for a month. Touring AZ and NM.

High winds are the rule. Hence the awning is useless. Today blowing about 50 mph in Holbrook AZ with dust flying ( its desert). There hardly ever is no wind around here.

Sway command has worked very well as well as an auxiliary brake control from the truck for those 12 percent grades

With the little engine we have we would not want bigger. Grey water tank filling is not an issue.. we water the plants. It gives us a little warning when its full.

We have learned the monitor lights are useless. We have just the one OEM battery and it does four days boondocking. We don't have a TV. We do have a generator we used ...once for powering the a/c in humid heat in Kentucky.

you do have to dance around in the kitchen and the bathtub can be a challenge to enter.

Coping: TP in bucket. #2 in campground bathroom if available. Navy shower.

12 mph but today was a killer.. 60 mph on a road with a 50 mph headwind.

The Andersen leveler has avoided many campsite trailer gymnastics. Its a breeze to level.

glad you having fun, personally wouldn't want to be in the desert, no trees to speak of hot and windy I much prefer mountain's with lots of shade and cool. what do you mean grey water tank not an issue we water the plants ?

At home we use grey water to water outside
Tent campers dump grey water in vegetation
So sometimes when the tank is getting full and nothing drains we siphon off five gallons grey water and water the sagebrush

Good morning,
Just purchased a 195 ourselves and absolutely love it. First trip was this weekend and had a great time.
Question, wondering if a weight distribution hitch is overkill on trailer of the size.
May help to include the current TV is a newer Nissan Xterra.
I would rather be safe than sorry?

Thanks advance for your help and opinions.

It just so happens that somebody else just posted a similar question and there's been a good discussion on the topic -> https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f3...nly-36330.html

I think a good wdh with integrated sway control is a sound investment.

Thanks for the feedback and you just confirmed my gut feeling.
Next time I'll try to search feature a little more in depth.
Safe travels
