Does this happen to you. You set up get the slides out, your level. Then in a day or so with the slides out you are unlevel. This is my first trailer with these deep slided. I really noticed it on this trip after the rain. Then you notice it with the shower you get that water run off out the shower to the floor.

Planning on Hocking Hills Ohio next week.
Highs mid 70's, lows around 50.

Best regards,
Doug

I camp all winter long. We haul our Trailer (same as yours 314BDS) up to the mountain and ski on the weekends. There is a campground about 20 miles from the big ski areas here in Portland Oregon. Cheaper than owning or renting a condo!!

It's past time to winterize here. But on our last trip to northern AZ for the week we took the trailer and truck down to the Valley and left it all there. When we return in November we'll just run out the slides, fill the fridge and take the toys out into the Superstitions.

This happens to us all the time!!!!

We too have a 2013 314bds (bought end of June 2013 -towed with a 2005 Ford Excursion). The family has been on 3 trips so far (one July, one August, one Sept) - each time we setup, level everything, then within 1-2 days the camper is out of level so much so that the door won't close on occassion (don't know if the weight of the slides makes it do this or not). This is by far the hardest trailer I have had to keep level!! We have to take large amounts of leveling blocks (added weight) with us to even setup the trailer because it is so high off the ground (need to put multiple blocks under the scissor jacks and tongue jack).

Also, we have had 2 times where water was on the floor (not inside the bathroom - on the outside of the bathroom wall by the pantry door)....the first incident was directly after taking a shower, the 2nd incident no one was showering (not sure where that water came from)....A friend of ours has the same floorplan (2010 Jayflight 32 BHDS) and they've also had issues with water following showers -- I've read several other posts about water issues on the floor and will definitely have to keep an eye on this issue (trailer is away for winter, but may need a trip back to the dealer this spring).
