New Owner from Upstate NY

A big hello to everyone! We purchases a 2014 264bh about a month back, stepping up from a truck camper. Just a little difference in size.

Haven't been out in it yet, am planning a test trip in a few weeks. In the meantime I've been lurking on this site an others. Lot's of good information and hopefully I can give back some too.

Currently I've been doing a few upgrades - queen bed support wall and lifting struts, 2nd battery, waste tank flush, LEDs.

Have plans to add solar (most of our camping does not have hookups) and extra straps to water tank (since I plan on traveling with a full tank and it looks flimsy).

Welcome !!!

Our bed squeaks when we move around. sounds like the wood creaking. Will the support wall help that?

Thanks.

Possibly. We haven't tried ours out enough to see if it squeaks. Do you know what is causing the squeak?

The reason I added it was the plywood under the mattress already had a bend in it and others had issues with the screws pulling out. I did something similar to this https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=14650 , except I only added the vertical wall to support the 2x2 rails under the plywood.

ok, I forgot you said wood creaking. May need to add some screws.

ADK,

Congratulations on the trailer, and welcome to The Forum! Your "upgrades" sound like fun to me. Oh yea, they'll help improve the comfort, storage, and usefulness of the trailer, too.

Happy camping, and keep us posted.

Too funny that our names are very similar. Even more so since I'm in the same town as you.

Its not even a single sheet so I think it may be where the pieces meet. Did not notice it last year though..

Yes. Was a little nervous based on feedback from friends, but we liked the build and layout of the Jayco better. So we gave it a shot.
