Hey Jak! Welcome....sounds like you are having fun!

At the risk of offending others, check out popupportal.com
Not offensive at all. We should be sharing other sites with good info!

Not that this site isn't fantastic

Popupportal has been a wealth of information! Thanks to those who suggested it.

We are going to pick up the camper (again!) this weekend, as it sadly broke the first time we went to use it so we had to bring it back. One of the bunk ends wound up going off the track. We banged it back into place so we could close it up to bring it back, but it needed to be looked at. It was covered under warranty, and will be replaced someday but JAyco has a lot of need for this track right now (telling me it's a more global problem!). It looks iffy as to whether or not we'll get it fixed before our week off grid in early August. We are told we can still use it as is, but I'm less convinced than my partner is. She's optimistic that we can still use it...

So, that part was a bummer, but for the few days that we had it set up in our driveway we loved it!!

Hey JAK, I just sold my pop up and there are two add on features you should consider. First is a vent cover so you can keep the fan going on rainy days to clear the muggy air. The other is a screen room. I can't tell you how nice it was to keep our table and stove out of the rain but still out doors. It is just like adding an 8'X8' room to your trailer.

Enjoy your summer.

bender: We have the screen room, and love it already. Good suggestion. We don't have an air conditioner though--is that where the vent cover fan you're talking about would go?

I believe Bender was referring to the covers that can be installed over the crank-up vents. These are often already installed, or added as a dealer option. Our TT has Maxxair, which seems to be a popular brand. Here's a link: http://www.maxxair.com/standard-maxxair.html

Nothing to do with PDI, but take a look at the site [url]www.popupgizmos.com. They sell insulating covers for over the canvas bed ends that keep the trailer cool during the day and warm during the night. They also reduce condensation inside the bed ends and my favorite feature is that they totally protect your canvas from tree sap stains. One of the best accessory investments we have made for our new hybrid.. They are very reasonably priced too.
