-38. Now I understand why our Arizona campground has so many Canadians! I hope your new camper is as trouble free as ours has been.

Just found out today we take delivery of our new 32tsbh April 23! Can't wait. We still have about a foot of snow on the ground but I'm anxious to get it all packed up and ready to go. Most of our inland lakes are still frozen over...come on sun...do your thing!

Congrats on your new Jayco purchase. Waiting for a TT to arrive is as painful as waiting for spring. LOL!!!

While waiting for your new TT to arrive, may I suggest investigating common mods (modifications) and for your unique situation and where needed, start budgeting for them.

For a cool list of mods, surf the many ideas within: http://www.modmyrv.com/

If wondering, the common mods are:
- Roof vents. White over the bathroom and black over the bedroom area.
- Tinted windows in the bedroom area
- Surge Protection. Suggest http://www.progressiveindustries.net/ssp_30.htm at the Service Post and next time visiting USA (Camping World location), buy the much better inside http://www.progressiveindustries.net/ems_hw30c.htm device. Thus, getting 2 x Tier Surge Protection. Buy/Install wall outlet Surge Protection devices to create a 3 x Tier system.
- Install clear 12V LEDs or 12V university licence plate light (at Canadian Tire store) on the steps. If wondering, I installed this mod and its "only shine light on the stairs" works great.
- If needed, install whole house water filter under the kitchen cold water sink. The whole house system ( example: http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/watts-bi...FYZaMgody1MARA ) will last for years and years. This DIY upgrade can be done using low cost PEX Piping / Clamp method.
- If needed, install 35 Watt automotive fog lights under the rear bumper (outer edges) and connect to 12V manual off/on switch with in-line fuse. When you want to backup in a tight spot in the dark, simply flip the light on. Much better lighting - compared to a spotter holding a weak flashlight.
- Perhaps another shelf or towel holder in the bathroom?

Also… Look at your new TT's Hot Water tank area. If installed in a storage compartment and this compartment allows space for other storage items, do consider installing a protection screen around the HW tank. Thus, stopping the other stuff from hitting (sliding against) your HW tank during panic stops. This wire mesh can be galvanized wire mesh that many folks use for Rabbit cages. And, this wire is found at most local hardware stores as well. If wondering, I installed a wire cage upgrade around my TT's HW tank (being 4" away from the tank). Easy DIY install - to improve its proactive safety.

Lots of little thanks that can bring more safety improvement and enjoyment to your TT.

Hope this helps as well…

So we found out today our new 32tsbh is at the dealer and we can pick it up May 9th. The dealer wanted some time to go over it and make sure it is perfect....is that normal? Are there any special questions I should be asking when they go over the trailer with us? (this is our 1st new trailer) Snow is still a foot deep in the field here so I don't mind wating another week and a bit. The DW and 2 DD's are getting very excited!
