Since I don't know how to get snipped quotes into these messages . . .

Allamuchy Joe and Rustic Eagle -

You might notice that our signature has changed. After much reflection we have changed our x23b order to the x19h. That gives us nearly 600 more lbs. of cargo capacity and we like the idea of having some excess towing capacity. I'm thinking of increased safety, but the "big guy" is thinking kegger party. (Yeah, like THAT's gonna happen.)

AJ - Thanks for speaking your mind and sharing your concern. We can always upgrade later if/when we find a bigger TV that we enjoy as much as the MDX.

I had already downloaded the instructions that one of you suggested. This RV'ing thing is way more complex than I had contemplated, but I am slowing plowing my way along the learning curve.

These forums are great. I have learned so much in the past few days - and I keep all the notes and tips on hand.

Again, thanks for your help.

It will help cool your trailer a lot.
I need to check out this Refletix as I have seen it several times in the Forum.

The MDX has a brake controller and I believe that the WDH comes from the dealer. I guess I will post a thread about which brand.

Thanks for your suggestions.

With the x19h you can use a little more counter top space and what many of us have done is to add an extension on the end. You'll find when cooking an extra 12" or so comes in real handy. If your a little handy you can make your own for a custom fit like mine. With it raised you can still go in and out the door when it's in the raised position.

Taking the time such as you have to understand the towing relationship between a TV and TT now will pay dividends, making for an enjoyable camping experience going forward. Also, you will be a sustaining resource for others as they enter the "newbie" world

Enjoy the camping season!

I think you will be very happy with the X19H. Your overall camping experience from leaving your driveway, towing your rig and camping will be much more enjoyable. My wife and I would have purchased the X19H years ago if the Honda Pilot we owned had a tow rating of 5000 pounds. The 4500 pound rating left us only with the X17Z option.

Enjoy your new trailer and we look forward to the first after-action report!

That looks so nice! We are not skilled in that way. Is this something we can just and attach? Also, what do you have over your burners? Again, is there something that just fits over the x19 burners? Your galley area is so functional and it looks great. Thanks for the tip.

I bought the Camco cover for the stove from amazon. Hard wood with a non-slip bottom.

Also I believe camco makes an add-on counter.

I'm 5'-8" and the DW is just 5' so for us the microwave on the bottom is safer and easier. Just so you know there is enough space for just the 3 burner range without the oven and the wave on the bottom. There's no information on that from Jayco but it all works. The space that the wave came from will double your storage. The door I bought used and removed the center panel and inserted ribbed glass to match the 2 doors above the sofa. Just buy a cutting board and set it on top of the range. The shelf extension is an easy make and got the brackets on eBay.

My counter top extension was made from shelf material from Lowes in a 2'x4' sheet. Cut it stained it and mounted it, total actual work time is just under 3 hrs. With the shelf up you can still go in and out the door, shelf 12" wide- and 16" left to walk around.

  • Can someone tell me about a 12V converter for a Resmed C-pap? Do they work?
My CPAP works just fine in my 19h. Just plug it into an outlet.
