Also thank you Klassic and Rock,

Putting a gate valve on the end is a great idea ... Actually think I may have one but will have to see how far it sticks out when out on...

The sextuplets appear 'ok' but still not sure how long they will keep a charge on a load ... That will be part of my tests this weekend...

Rock,
What's up with your brakes? Did you post in this thread or a different thread?? I'm not showing really anything in this thread almost the whole month of Feb... Is that right??

Thanks again everyone !

Under fifth wheel but under major brake problems. Should only be back a page or two. RV been in shop over two months while Jayco and Lippert argued on who pays. Probably will not get it back till mid March.

If you didn't know... If you leave your rig plugged in and turn off the battery disconnect, your converter will continue to charge the batteries. That's how our rigs are wired.
I think the built in charge wizard would do a better job taking care of batteries then a trickle charger.
The wizard sends out a desulfation charge every 28 days.
So if your rig gets unplugged or the breaker pops, the batteries won't drain from a parasitic draw.
And when they are fully charged they will stay charged for months in the cold.

I would also like to see a picture of six batteries all cradled in the battery compartment.

I bet with six batteries and a washer drier you would have a leaning RV and a bunch more pin weight

Klassic, I will try to take a few pics of the sextuplets and post...

The batteries appear great and just as you said, the power control unit did a great job trickle charging...

All systems check is good... sanitized all water tanks... long tedious process....!!

Roof De-lamination concern

Hello Everyone....

Was wondering if I could get everyones thoughts/feedback on a concern I have with what appears to be some de-lamination, on the corners of the roof, just under the rubber layer. Our RV is about 5 months old, but it appears lifting/de-laminating could very easily cut through the rubber roof layer.

Please see pictures below.... Should I be concerned and contact Jayco ?? Our RV is stored under a roof..

Nice!
I assume those are AGM's?
I would hate to be checking the water on those.
That's a lot of pin weight you have up there. What does it weigh in at?

Too bad about the roof... Mine sure isn't like that. At least I haven't noticed
I'd be sending that picture to Jayco. If you dealer says it's ok and Jayco says nothing to worry about, at least it will be documented if something happens.

Looks like it's the aluminum that bends around the edge buckling between the screws.

That does not look good. Can u push down on the rubber roof an does what ever is underneath (causing it to lift up) also push down? If so than what ever is under the rubber is starting to separate. Our unit were made within a week and I wish mine was not at dealer so I could look and see if mine is also doing that. U sure that was not like that when u got it? My rubber roof has a lot of wrinkles around the vents and also on the sides but they r just wrinkles and nothing was lifting up on the rubber from underneath. With that said I have not looked at my roof since early Dec. I would have a dealer by u check that out. If that is separation from the underneath that is a major repair
