Jayco adventures

About three weeks ago we got a lot of hail damage on our Jayflight 23rb. The insurance said they would total it for damages. We already had two weeks of camping scheduled in Okla. so we went on with our trip and they would pick it up when we got back. We had a wonderful time there and getting ready to leave I saw the fresh water tank gauge said full, being as they are usually wrong and I knew I had put only about 10 gallons in there for travel I ignored it and started home. We decide to take the Southern route home and go through Louisiana for some Cajun food which was great. Going into Mississippi and over some very rough roads I pulled in to a Pilot truck stop for gas and saw the fresh water tank hanging down almost to the ground, full of water and the drain hose pinched shut. Well, I did what any good cowboy would do, I wrapped two ropes around the rv and under the water tank and cinched it up tight and went on down the road after opening every drain I could. At every stop I would be able to cinch those ropes a little bit tighter and by the time we got home the tank was almost back in place. I put a jack under it and raised it back where it belonged, found the metal strap was ok but a SMALL bolt had broken off. I replaced it with a Larger bolt and and now all is back to normal.
A service technician verified if the water pump back flow gets stuck open in the pump you will indeed fill the fresh water tanks while hooked up to city water. Oh well that one is history to me. We were ready for a bit more room without going for too much more weight or length so we now have a White Hawk 23mrb. Never thought I would like a Murphy bed but found out I like it, loving the extra room with the slide! Sorry my computer won't let me post a picture, I know it is operator error but it is what it is. The adventure starts back up next week as we head out again, this semi-retirement is great!
