Duck Tape

Dear Reader:

I really did do my homework on the forum but did not have any luck.

You see, my 23RB will be delivered to me soon and I am trying to get my ducks in order so that DW and I are properly outfitted for a tow from Middlebury to NW Florida. It being a new trailer and manufactured by Jayco, who knows what may be encountered?

Shortly after I joined the forum, a knowledgeable member identified a type of duct tape that would hold, cover, seal, and/or protect against all perils, including some that have no yet arisen in RV land.

I need help identifying this wondrous product and I either need the trade name of the stuff or the thread reporting it.

Yeah, I've already rounded up bailing wire.

Thanks,
Bob

Get both of the above, each has its special use. Who knows, maybe your JAYCO will give you a trouble free trip. In three years, mine has!

I prefer Gorilla Tape over Duct Tape - just my two cents worth!

Duck tape

Thank-you tslarson and arkhillbilly for taking the time to respond. I shall consider obtaining both kinds of tape, although these do not, from my memory, match the name of the tape one writer strongly endorsed.

Embarking on an entirely new and major buying experience can be disquieting and, based upon what is often written within this forum, gives me pause. I too am hopeful my new Jayco trailer will give me at least three years of troublefree service. I certainly hope so. Still, isn't it wise to be prepared?

It is my observation that there is a disproportionate amount of space in this forum devoted to a variety of problems encountered by Jayco owners that, in my opinion, are not adequately addressed under what appear to be clear warranty protections. There are many unhappy comments regarding an unwillingness or refusal on the part of countrywide Jayco dealers to support expressed or implied company policies. Furthermore, similar refusals or lack of corrective action on the part of the parent company tend to make me nervous.

Time will tell, obviously, but it does prompt a question on my part about why Jayco would be so casual. I would think this forum, like others I subscribe too, would serve as a critically important sounding board and prompt crafting of policies that either attract or firmly hold buyers. Maybe corporate doesn't read unhappy news?

So, in the meantime, bailing wire and duct tape beckon.

Bob

I have limited experience with said tape, but have been told by reliable sources that it should be held in partnership with WD-40.

I just uncovered the trailer, was using duck tape to hold the pool noodle over the sharp points work great, with cover.
I once used duck tape when I ripe my blue jeans. Had to take someone to the hospital
the nurse looked at me and said the red green show Right) I said yes. Duck tape is used for every thing
