New trailer - 2023 25RB

Hello all, new camper here, just picked up our new 25RB trailer on Saturday, itís our first trailer. Itís a 2023 model, please let me know if you have any questions about the trailer. I plan on extending the bed to a full size queen, replacing the toilet with the Dometic 320 and installing rear view cameras among other things.

I know Iíve got a lot of learning to do, Iíve been lurking on the forum for a few months and have already picked up so much useful info so thanks to everyone who contributes.

We only found a few small things that were not right but Iíll fix those. The 12v refrigerator does not shut off when the battery disconnect is off. As far as I can tell all the other 12v circuits are powered down, itís just the refrigerator thatís still on. The dealer says to turn it off using the temperature control inside the fridge. Is that normal?

Thanks,
Iain

Iain,

I'm not familiar with the operation of the 12V frig....., but I'm sure someone will chime in.

You may have already run across the JOF thread titled "Jay Feather 25RB Owners", but here's the link just-in-case:

My battery disconnect does not turn off 12v fridge either. A couple other circuits for lights, etc, stay energized as well. The disconnect primarily disables things you wouldn't want working during travel. Slides, awning, jacks, etc. My tongue jack will work in basic mode, but autolevel and stuff is turned off.

I installed a total disconnect at battery I use for storage.

Same for my 2022 27RB relative to the 12V refrigerator still powered. I also installed a disconnect at the battery for storage.

Mine has a wiring schematic label just above the factory installed disconnect that shows the following items still powered.

Power Converter Charge Line
TPMS, Lighting, HVAC, etc End of BMPRO Control
Tow Vehicle Charge Line, Roof Solar Prep, Power Tongue Jack
Breakaway Switch, Smart Light Control
12V Refrigerator

Congratulations on the new 25RB. We also pick our new 25RB unit up on Saturday, but it's a 2022. So excited to get out there...but have a long cold Western NY winter to weather before our first outing for Spring Break in Myrtle Beach.

However, with all that time, I should get through my list of modifications...

Congratulations on your 2023 Jay Feather 25RB.

We have traveled over 12K miles across the Western states with our 2021 25RB and no major issues. Our refrigerator is gas/elect. Here are most of our additions/changes:

Full queen bed
Dometic 320 toilet
Swivel goose neck bathroom faucet
Dark curtains for entry door window
Screen door cross bar
Brass 90 degree elbow for city water and black flush inlets
Furrion rear view camera
Lippert PSX1 front and rear power stabilizers
TST 507 TPMS
Safety struts (supports) for rear bumper
Curt 2 inch bumper receiver for our bike rack
Husky Brute 4500 lb. electric tongue jack
Tongue jack cover
Cables for a 1000W portable inverter in the front pass thru
200W Renogy solar suitcase to recharge two 6V batteries when dry camping

Maybe these items will give you some ideas for your new camper.

Thanks for the list, that gives me more things to think about.

So far Iíve completed the full size queen bed conversion, the Dometic 320 toilet with bidet 😀, changed the storage door locks for the barrel key style and fitted an electronic lock on the main door. Tomorrow is the TPMS install and Haloview bt7 rear view camera install.

First trip out is end of the month, looking forward to that.
