We bought our a-frame in October, and have had it on 4 trips, now. Just got back from FL. Heat pump AC underperformed on hottest day. Ours was salvage, so I am suspecting a coolant leak, since it worked great when it wasn't so hot, and on the hot day, the compressor kicked on and off as usual.

Angry DON"T do this with your A-frame!

Forgot to mention: We put a spare tire bike rack on our camper (DO NOT TRY THIS!) and the tire, rack, and bikes fell off. Fortunately, this happened as we backed into a campsite, so no real damage to anyone or anything. The spare tire is put on with screws instead of bolts. We were going to beef it up with some bar stock and bolts, but we can't get to the spot on the inside. So we plan to buy a hitch bike rack that has a ball to tow the camper with.

I think a DW is a dear wife; DH is a dear husband.

Thanks for the tip. I remember the dealer telling us not to install anything on the rear bumper, as its not designed to hold weight.

Keep an eye on your A/C condensate pan, Jaycos wonderful craftsman didn't use the correct drain parts supplied by LG. They ran 1/4" tubing that kinked so it won't drain and it overflows the pan and water runs out by the tire. I removed the A/C vent cover and installed a thru-hull marine drain by drilling a hole in the bottom of the pan and now it drains great. If not corrected the floor will eventually rot.

Hi, we have a 2016 Jayco. Sport 12H. It has a "heat pump" rather than an AC unit. Does the heat pump have a condensation pan like an a/c? We have used the heat pump tomcool the camper in Utah and everything seemed to work well. Thanks

Yes all the Aframes have a heat pump which is an A/C unit that will also create heat and they sit in a condensate pan, its called a Coolcat. If you look on the outside of the trailer you have a large grill on the outside of the A/C unit, just below it coming through the floor just behind the grill you will see the drain tubes. Check them on a hot humid day and they should drip water, if not it is running over on the floor inside under the bed.
