Hi Deano

We are also waiting for the arrival of our new 19rd. This is an AMAZING little TT. I especially love the 90 gal fresh water storage (great for boondocking) the windows in that living area (so amazing - so light even on dark cloudy rainy days, LOVE IT!) the 8 cu ft fridge/freezer. We are getting the insulated version with enclosed underbelly.

CAN'T WAIT!!!! to get into it and start using it.

Hi Tracy W, We picked our's up last Thursday. We love it for the same reasons. Going to take a short maiden trip this weekend. I am sure I will have some questions! We had a tent trailer 21 years. You might say we upgraded a bit. We also have the enclosed underbelly, not sure about the insulated version? We have the power awning that's real sweet. Congrat's & enjoy. I will let you know how we made out!

Talking

Well you'll be happy to know that if you do have the enclosed underbelly then you DO have the thermal package that's the only way to get the enclosed underbelly on the 19rd's. They put extra foil insulation in the roof with that package (and slides too, but we don't have any slides) and that raises the R values a bit.

I still need to order mine, but that is going to happen VERY soon as we just closed a deal in selling our house and once we figure out our closing date (and our subsequent moving date) I'll know better when we can get to pick up our sweet little trailer.

We also are upgrading from a pop-up, and yes, those 19rd are going to be BLISSFULLY WONDERFUL compared to what we were used to I think we love those living quarters windows because of that view effect we were used to in our pop-ups, I just can't fathom getting a camper without having lots of windows for those views.

I'm envious of you getting to camp already, up here in Wisconsin we still have a good 2 feet of snow in our yard in places.

we're in Washington st. as you probly know it's rainy & chilly. our popup doesn't have a heater so we didn't use it this time of year . I think we will get out a bit more through the year with this one. after all these years looking forward to not having to put tent trailer up & down & up&down!!!!!

new jayflight 19rd water leak

We took our new 19rd out for the first time this weekend. Every thing worked and fine until I was draining the holding tanks. We have the outside flush system for the blk. water tank . When I was flushing the tank clean water was running out the bottom of the trailer. I was using a pressure regulator inline with the hose. Anyone else have had this happen? Thanks Deano

I don't mean to hi-jack this thread but thought it was a good location to ask the question about the non-ducted AC for the 198RD.

Skybound, how loud is the AC unit? I have had a couple of TT's that are non-ducted and the units can seem to overtake any conversation or maybe watching TV at the time. One for sure was the Dometic low profile unit that was pretty loud and it seem to freeze up a bit. Any issues with the units freezing up in the 198RD?

Again, didn't mean to take this thread over, just thought it would be a good spot to ask the questions to those now owning one.

thanks
Scott

Sorry for the delayed response slogan - We barely use the AC in our trailer. I turn it on when we are hooked up to 30A service now and then just to run it. On high it is loud, yes. On low I find it not too bad. We slept one night with the fan on low and the bit of background noise was actually kind of nice. I don't have much experience with the ducted units to compare to, but I will say that if you are planning on sitting beneath it, with it on high, and trying to have a conversation, it might be a bit distracting. I live up in the great white north though and AC is rarely needed!
