New Rig!

Well, we picked up the new to us 2015 White Hawk 25Bhs. Hauled it through the Twin Cities, during rush hour and in the rain. Popped 3 fuses on the tongue jack because it was raised too high. Took me 10 minutes, but I got it backed in. My husband hauls and I back in. Wow, is this trailer harder to back in than the aframe. We even managed not to have a fight this time. We will pull out in the AM to a campground to figure out all the systems. Thank you all for the advise and shopping lists!

Congratulations on the new to you Jayco! As you've discovered, it's real easy to blow the fuse for the electric tongue jack. I learned here on the forum not to extend it all the way up or down to avoid that issue. So far, it's not been a problem. I do carry 5 or 6 spare fuses in my tool kit for the day it does happen. Have fun on your maiden trip and happy camping!

Congrats! We love our 25BHS. Never had any fuses blow on the tongue jack yet but something to watch for I guess. What I have most problems with is the kitchen GFCI plug always pops on me and I just do a reset. Don't know why cause I won't even be using it for anything and the sucker pops. What killed me is that I have the extra fridge in the front compartment and one day it didn't work not realizing its on the same circuit. Tore it all apart to check the plug in only to find out all I had to do was reset the GFCI plug. Grrrr. But it got me to put in a power strip to plug the fridge in so I can just switch it on and off due to the plug had no easy access don't want it running when it sits at home. Also watch out for the USB plug station next to the bed. Mine fell apart from pulling the plug out. The whole silver part of the unit just fell out and the wife didn't tell me and she shoved it back in causing the fuse to blow out the stereo and tv. After a couple of fuses I asked what the heck happened then wife said the USB plug fell pulled out maybe it's that and for sure it was lol. On my way to pick up a replacement from the service dept. tomorrow. Other than that I have had no problems all season long...knock on wood.

Happy trails!
