Get power off the pole behind you and toss the 100' extension cord
Camping site certainly looks large enough and the storage shed is a big plus but you need more trees.
Choose to exit the rear door in the morning cause the front looks like a doozie of a first step especially when 1/2 asleep
Everything you've read here is tongue in cheek - you asked for advise

Nice rig - enjoy it

You are supposed to be able to enjoy camping, not worry about it , that said, I think you will find that many of us find enjoyment in all of the technicle stuff you should do/ can do to your TT.

If you are at all inclined to DYI , then you have come to the right place.

Either browse past postings, or post a question.

Several members post lots of Mods ( modifications ) they have done to their trailer, some because they are needed, and some because we needed something to do..... You can usually find these under the user profile sections.


Congrats on the new TT.

Talk to you soon.

Thanks guys this is just the storage spot at my house for the trailer. Planning on building an rv port in the near future. Getting power From that pole would be a sweet idea. I would have to have the power company come install a meter on the tool shed though. I've been reading and reading different forums over the past year which has led me to a Jayco product as well as here. I'm hoping I have good luck with it. I have a wife and two small children and our first weekend out will be memorial weekend. After that a Trip to the NASCAR truck/IRL race weekend will be in store.

When you build a cover for your trailer be sure and make it big enough. Most people get bigger trailers when they feel the need for a change.

Congratulations on the White Hawk, Andrew. And WELCOME to the JOF. . . you've come to the right site. Like you, I researched trailers for over a year before I bought my Eagle in January. This site was (and continues to be) such a treasure of information for me. Hope you enjoy all the pleasures (and, hopefully, few of the frustrations) being a Jayco owner brings.

Happy camping!

Andrew, enjoy first and foremost. I have a 23m 2013 and also tow with a F150. I did add equilizer hitch onto it and it tows like a dream especially in some high winds on a few trips. Great layout you are going to love it. Grab a sewer hose, freshwater hose, maybe a surge protector some day and hit the road !

It appears that you have flipped your axles, because your stabilizer jacks are reaching a long way on all corners, especially the front.

You should probably consider using some blocks or "cribbage" for stabilizer jack pads, when extended like they are they provide very little stabilization. For them to work properly, all four corners need to be similar to the length of extension that is present on the right rear corner in the picture.
