Hi!
As a new X17A owner and new to trailers overall, I have some stupid questions related to the ideas here.

1. How do you mount 5" PVC to your trailer?
2. Are there any power jacks that actually fit the trailer? I don't have a way to grind anything.

Thanks!
Leann

For the pvc, I used 36" zip ties until I get around to a more permanent solution. As for the power jack, I think it is going to be hit and miss because of the metal support bar that is welded to the front of the a-frame. Congrats on the tt and good luck on hunting down a power jack.

Jayco's web site say this: "Power Package (N/A X17A and X17Z), Power awning and power tongue jack". So there must be a reason they couldn't put one on an X17A.

There are many ways to attach the PVC and I've learned from kjaeger that you can put it on the front frame which is a good idea. We chose to attach ours to the rear bumper. Here's a photo. The hardware is stainless steel from your local home improvement store. We used the existing holes in the bumper (no need to drill there) but did need to drill holes in the PVC. We have end-caps on both sides of the PVC with small holes drilled for air flow and added a piece of reflective red tape here and there. This photo doesn't show it but we supported the PVC in the back with two small pieces of cedar blocks one on each bumper support rail held on with an electrical tie. This helped level it.

Wish I could get a 5" PVC fence jacket. Tried every hardware store and fence company in my area. The only place I found was a lowes three provinces away and they won't ship it because it's too long; so going to have to get the valterra ez store

Seems to be a common problem for us Canadians. No luck finding anything here in NB either, I've tried every hardware store.

Congrats

We live in Columbia, SC and bought ours right before the big flood so we haven't had chance to camp until this Halloween weekend. We had a PUP and this is out first TT ever. You will love it like we love ours I'm sure. Here we are on our first camp site with it at Sesquicentennial State Park in Columbia (its 10 minutes from my house and 5 minutes from Walmart)...
