New (used) 1207 owner

Hi!,

Just picked up a 2007 1207 for the labour day long weekend. My wife was complaining about going tent camping and it was a bit of a last minute decision when this one came up. So far we couldnt be happier. It treated us well during our trip the only issue we have had is since getting back home the propane alarm has a mind of its own even though all the gas has been shut off for over a week now.

Two things to consider:
1. The Propane/CO alarm will sound if the trailer battery is at all low. Make sure your battery is fully charged. Ours used to always go off in the middle of the night if the battery was running down. It will stop if you cut off the battery (disconnect switch, or pull the + cable off).
2. These detectors have a life span of 5-6 years. Considering the age of your unit, it should be replaced if it is stale dated. Our newest one has an alarm (different pattern) that sounds when it is past its life span. Check the manufacturing date (generally on the back of the unit). I marked the install date on the front of the new one with a Sharpie.

ETA: nice looking unit, and Welcome to JOF! Great place, friendly people! Is that Ingersoll ON?

EATA: Guessing yes, just noticed Jayco's Canada spec flag on the side of the pup.

My co/lp detector went bad on our last trip. It was 2 years old and I bought it from MTI industries. I called and got a RA# and will get a replacement if it goes bad before 5 years.

Since we were on the road, I purchased a LP/CO detector that works on 110v and has a 9v battery backup from Lowes.

I just unplug it when we were towing. I will keep it for a backup since I have never had one that lasted 5 years.

Thanks for the information. Yes the propane alarm is past its prime. I am looking to replace it come next season. For now I just unhooked everything and disconnected the battery as it was making the neighborhood dogs go nuts!

And yes you are correct we are in Ingersoll Ontario!

Ah, fond memories. Lived in London ON many years ago; my dad worked for CIL in Ingersoll. Must have been 40 years ago now.

its a nice little town we have been here for just about 4 years now. Previously we have hopped all over the place from Cambridge to Belleville, Brantford, Paris Tillsonburg. Now that we have kids we have stayed put for the first time since we were kids.

Thanks! one of the reasons we actually did this is because we went to Darien Lake earlier in the year and my kids loved it however my back did not enjoy sleeping in a tent. We want to make it a bit of a family tradition so I am sure we will be back in your neck of the woods next year!

The tent went away when the ground got hard.....or the beer ran out. Enjoy the PUP, and happy camping. We have some nice places around here.

Congrats. We picked up one just like yours in June, and have used it several times already, heading to Algonquin Park this weekend to enjoy the fall colours. Yours looks to be in great shape!

We love the layout, it is so spacious, and there is lots of storage even when popped down. I've done a fair bit to ours, new tires/rims, serviced bearings, new caulking all over, replaced some small broken parts, etc and reconfigured some of the storage areas.
