Smile New to the RVing /Travel Trailer

Hello everyone. Just picked up a brand new 2014 Jayco Jay Fight FB22 TT about 3 weeks ago. My wife and I cannot wait to get on the road with it and try it out.

Does anyone have any tips or pointers for this model. Anything will help us, like I said we are new to this TT camping but we are excited and are itching to go.

Right after Memorial Day weekend we are going up to Minnesota for a week.

Welcome to the forum and Congrats on your new TT. We have a 22FB as well and absolutely LOVE it! Get yourself some leveling blocks (if you don't already have them) and always level side to side first with the blocks under the tires as needed, then do front to rear with tongue jack. Then down go the stabilizer jacks. Chunk that cheesy slinky drain hose and get a Rhino hose, you want regret it. NEVER leave your canopy out when you're away from your trailer OR on windy days. To prevent black tank nasty odors, after draining and flushing, add about 2 gallons of water with dawn dish soap through toilet. This will slush around on the drive home cleaning inside of tank, then drain and flush again then add tank tablet with 1.5 more gallons before storage.

Good luck and Happy Camping!

Great advise. Also: when you leave your site for a day trip turn off the water outside. We also shut off water heater and pump if we are not hooked to city water. And always use a pressure regulator on your city water.

Be very diligent about checking tire pressure. These rigs come with tires that are just barely rated for the work they are doing. I always upgrade to range D tires when finances allow.
