Ya, I have not been too impressed with the brakes also. I had to do a major panic stop when a car spun out of control right in front of me while towing. I did not hit her, but I upgraded my brake controller before the next time out.

I also really liked the fireplace, but the DW did not like the price and we both really liked the big picture window. I added my own fireplace later. See my links in my signature.
The LED lights are a lot brighter. What I like about them best is the fact that you can turn on one set, or both lights, unlike the ones I took out. They were not cheap, however, for something that looks like it is from the factory, I'll pay the extra.

I've got an appointment with Mor-Ryde at the end of the month to see about disc brakes for the trailer. I'll go to the dealer and see about a new brake controller first, and if that don't make me happy, then I'll go to disc brakes. The brakes work fine when you first hook up and leave, but fade out after that.

I wanted to order a trailer, and not take one off the lot. This trailer has two AC units with 50 amp service, and the fireplace. I was thinking more with you, the big window in the back, one AC unit and 30 amp service. However, the dealer we bought this unit from I have dealt with for several years and, made me offer I couldn't refuse. And most important, the wife like it better then the big back window. So....this is what we have. And we are very happy with it.

I don't understand why Jayco put recliners in the fifth wheel units like this floorplan, but on travel trailer, they put two couches. And, Jayco wouldn't send recliners to the dealer to swap out one couch. So, I sold one couch, and bought two rocker recliners. My wife says the trailer will entertain 6, feed 4, and sleep 2.

Safe travels,

Safe travels,
Ours still came with a 50amp service. It must be standard. It is pre wired for the second air in bedroom. That was a big surprise when we picked it up. I was not expecting a 50 amp service.

I did not know that. I just thought that one AC was 30 amp. Thanks for the info.
