Well a couple of months in and I must throw out a couple of "Thanks".
To the guy I bought this trailer from, thanks for no suprises!! Everything so far is as advertised. To Jayco...I haven't towed a bunch of miles but have used/set-up/camped now four times and everything works like a freakin charm!! Do I wish I had double the AC capacity here in TX? Yeah...but it works fine so far.
I have added a battery disconnect since the 2001 model charger inverter seems to enjoy overcharging the battery and I just put a new one in. Im usually hooked up so its only for short trips on 12V. Need to look at an upgrade to the inverter/charger.
Vortex fan upgrade overall is awesome, but the screen likes to suck up to the fan blade on hi and make a lovely rubbing sound. I don't use it enough to worry about it. The goofy sheepskin square plug is worth every penny to keep the suns heat out during the day. If I forget to put it in the fan opening, the AC will struggle to keep 78 degrees. I also think the plug is adding to my fan blade rubbing issue upon plug removal since it pushes on that screen whenever its installed...ohh well..no big deal.
I still wanting a better TV solution. I know lots of folks on here could care less about TV but I like to have it. I have my 19" flat screen in the bedroom and a 26" ish that is jsut n its stand in the main room but only one feed from the dish since I have single coax. Trying to look at some of these wireless solutions to see if I can put one "hub" somehwere and both TV's feed off of it, with the ability to watch two different shows. Also would love a tie in to a stereo of some sort with a wireless speaker that could be placed anywhere....with TV audio, or radio/stereo audio playing. I know geek stuff but hey, its mine! lol
Haven't tested the furnace yet, but based on Dallas weather, it will be November before I even THINK about that.
For all of the RVQ grill haters....I see some of it. The rail on my trailer is loose on one end and I haven't looked at how to get behind there to secure it properly. I am really toying with just making a table specific to the RVQ. Then I can move it under the awning as needed since I have two hoses and some extra "rope" as needed. I did find that it works great as an oven/warmer to make campfire type potatoes in 102 degree heat in TX without warming up the inside of the trailer, so I am going to keep it around. I haven't tried burgers or steaks on it yet....charcoal in the park bbq seems just fine for that.
I need to also do some curtain/blind upgrades but mine still function-ish.
I also added an Igloo tabletop ice maker. That little dude is amazing. Ice in about 12 minutes. I have been bagging some in zip locs and putting in the freezer. Its a bit heavy, and the fan pumps out some hot air, but still handy. $128 I think from Wal Mart "Site to Store".
Best purchase addition so far? Simple dustbuster vaccum and a swiffer. I can clean the floor, cushions, everything, in about 8 minutes and it looks new! Get one!!
I also added a broom handle type clamp in the wardrobe next to my bed and it holds a shorty 20ga single shot just perfect!! (I have no kids)
Just wanted to jump on with a follow-up to how happy I am with my used Jayco purchase!!
