Welcome and congrats!!!

Once you get the 287 loaded up, ready for a trip you may need to readjust the wdh. The dealer only set up the wdh to an empty trailer. Follow my signature links for a ton of wdh info.

Make sure you have some paper and a pen/pencil (or phone app!) to write items down you could use in the tt. Makes it easier to remember. Keeping the first couple trips close to home/ Walmart type stores allows for a quick store run if needed. Or even Camp Driveway!!!

Have fun!

CONGRATULATIONS on the JAYCO!!!

...and WELCOME TO JOF!!! The members here are GREAT!!! There is a lot of GREAT information to be found here. I am sure that you will have information and pictures to share with us... so please do!!

Don

TIP: If you do not have your TT plugged into 110VAC, pull your MAIN fuse located by the batteries, or the electronics inside the TT will drain your battery in a short time.

Welcome and congrats on the camper. Yes some of us use inline electrical protection. Progressive Industries are the best in my opinion. They have portable ones that plug in to the pedestal and then you plug in to the unit. They also have ones that you hardwire in to the camper.

Progressive Industries RV Surge and Electrical Protection industry lea
