which would you go with: the cool cat heat pump or the roof mounted ac/furnace? Most of our use will be in the southeast US.

We didn't have a choice, we purchased our tt at an RV Show and it already had the upgrades to the AC/Furnace BUT we would have wanted that option, so it worked out for us. We live in CA and camp all year, I like the warmth of the furnace heat and I wanted the a/c so that in the summer I can leave our dog in the trailer when we're hiking or away from camp and know he'll be nice & cool.

SunCruzin--- With all electronic gear , you have to be carefull that that you have the correct voltage ie 120V 10% +- to operate on.Voltage drop in real common in campgrounds, the further you are from a transformer ( those gray cans on the poles) the lower the voltage will be especially at breakfsst & dinner times. Generac makes a meter that plugs in so you can see the voltage your recieving, the are $20.00 on line. i take mine in the house to be sure my generator is running correctly during power outages. DON'T WANT TO RUIN MY FLAT SCREEN WITH LOW VOLTAGE.

Cyndi, I did replace the jack with a Husky power jack. You can find a photo of the installation in my album. Also had the Reese Straight line equalizing hitch with sway control installed, photo also included. Hope your recent trip with Ridgeline went well, how did the Honda handle it? Am curious on your response.

OK so I'm a little concerned... Do your windows leak?

We had to have ALL our windows replaced because the dealer had buffed when they were preping the trailer, on our initial walk thru I noticed it and they ordered new windows. I finally took it a few weeks ago and just picked it up last week on Wednesday because we were going camping on Friday. I brought it home washed it and noticed the leaks on the two side windows, I stopped at the dealer on my way camping and they ran water on them to see the leaks. Our windows just slide on to the bracket so to replace them they just slid out the old one and slid in the new one so it's not something the dealer did.

I just spoke with the dealer, said their going to change the rubber seals around the windows to larger seals, is anyone else having this problem?

I also had the Husky power jack installed ago along with the TV mount and a pull bar on the screen door and rollers on the back end!

What do you mean - "buffed" - ?

Kjon73,
There were swirl marks all over them, it looked like they had taken an electric buffer (like one used to detail a car) and used it on the windows.

It was an easy to change them out; they just slide into the bracket at the top of the window.

Why would they "buff" windows?

Crabman,
Not sure why they buffed them, our windows are acrylic!

We have a few issues with the trailer that we're tying to get worked out. Our biggest problem right is the side windows leak, the dealer said they would contact Jayco for us.

We'll see what happens!
