New Member 184BH Baja Edition

Just joined today, did some searching on the internet and it looked like all my questions were being directed here.

In November my wife and I bought a 2014 184BH Baja Edition TT. I am towing it with an 07 Toyota FJ.

My wife and I use to tent camp, well now that we have two boys (ages 5 and 3 right now) tent camping was something my wife didn't want to do anymore. We borrowed a neighbor's pop up tent trailer and that got my wife hooked!! But the pop up tent trailer seemed like a lot of work for setup..... That was just us... Being lazy!!!! So we found this trailer, it's actually used. I guess a couple had bought it, used it once and decided that a motor-home would be better for them. So we got this trailer, used once at about $2000 less. We thought it was too good to pass up. Our first trip is planned in March, we are going to Ocean Shores WA.... Not the time for tent camping at Ocean Shores!!!

So if anyone can give me any tips of what I might need I would appreciate it!!

One mod I am going to do is the LED strip on the awning.

Another thing is to get an LP hose some where to hook up my Q2200 for grillin outside.

Thanks everyone, looking forward to searchin and getting help... And supplying any help that I can!

Chewey

congrats! we just got ours last year...just look through the forum and you should find all the answers you need. i leave a box with crayons and coloring books, paints etc for my daughter in the camper...hit the dollar store for extra cooking utensils, potholder etc to leave in the camper. i am trying to make it so all i need is in the camper and at the end of the year i just throw everything into totes to stay in the camper instead of moving them inside....we also invested in a little 15 inch LCD TV NAXA brand with DVD player...it was $160 on amazon...totally worth it, it has the 12 volt DC cord ...and boy is that great on evenings and rainy days

We did an Ikea run and found some cheap utensils, and the place we bought our trailer there was a Wal-Mart next to the service center where we picked the trailer up at. We found a 19" TV for $84 and a Blueray player for $50. Perfect for the trailer on rainy days. Rainy days here in Washington.... UUUMMMM...... YEAH!!!

Does anyone have experience with portable grey/black water tanks? Since our grey water is 15 gallons and the black is only 9 gallons, with a 3 and 5 year old boys.... Those will be full in about an hour!!

I am getting excited, just pulled my trailer out of winter storage. Got a question (I know do a search), what is the best way to de-winterize your trailer? How do I get all the pink anti-freeze out of it?

Sorry, this is my first camping trailer, moving up from the tent camping.

Hi Chewey, what we do on our first trip is we stop and fill up the freshwater tank and run all of the faucets both hot and cold (don't forget about the outside shower), when all run clear we top off the freshwater tank and stop by the dump station to empty the tanks before heading to our site. Don't forget to change the settings on the bypass for the hot water heater after everything runs clear.

There is also a process to sanitize the water lines, however since we don't drink/cook with water out of the fresh water tank, we skip this step.
