King Jack Directional Antenna Protection

My 2020 26XD has the King Jack antenna. Before I put the winter cover on do you think I should make up a cover to go over the antenna? The antenna cover would have a wide base flat to disperse the weight of the heavy snow/slush/ice we get here in Southern New England. I'm thinking the weight of this wintery mix will put a lot of downward pressure on the winter cover and on the small surface where the antenna mounts to the roof and possibly cause roof damage or breaking the antenna. My other Class c was the crank up/down type and this wasn't an issue.

RE: Winter cover for TT

I had an "Elements All Climate" that came with the new class C I bought 5 years ago. It lasted very well for the 4 harsh winters I used it. As suggested here I made sure all the corners and pressure locations were covered with a good thickness of cloth. in my case I bought some cheap bath towels and taped them up as needed. My plan was to buy a new cover for this coming winter. I bought a new Class C and this one didn't come with a cover. I went to buy another "Elements All Climate" it seemed a bit thinner. So after some research, and seeing the prices about the same, I bought an ADCO Designer all weather cover. We'll see how this works. I live in the Southern New England where we tend to get very slushy heavy snow/rain that flash freezes, along windy conditions.

RE: Does RV antifreeze go bad?

3X on what D3500ram said. I still have some of the blue -100 degree Quick Silver stuff that I bought just before selling my boat a couple of years ago. I use it for the sink traps, put some in the gray and black water tanks. Be all gone this year. New RV antifreeze is just to inexpensive to chance.

RE: Craters of the Moon, ID

2x on Mountain View in Arco. If you have time, check out Atomic City.

RE: Momentary switch on my Powergear Slide

You're right, so the next time it failes I'll pull the panel and test the connected apparently failed out going switch legs with the multimeter. That should give me the answer about this switch. Thank.

RE: Momentary switch on my Powergear Slide

Mine is electric too. I agree that this floor situation is part of, or maybe the reason for this failure. The dealer I bought the RV from has a very good reputation as far as warranty work goes. We'll see I guess. As I said this has happened twice so far. I'm heading out tomorrow for a week across northern New England. If it happens again I'm going to swap the load wire positions and see what happens. I haven't heard anything binding and the RV is level.

RE: Momentary switch on my Powergear Slide

I'm bringing it in on Sept 23, for the first round of warranty work. I really want to be more familiar with the possibilities so I can tell if they are being straight with me. Good suggestion with the connections I'll double Check them.at least I know how to get the thing to work again. The main reason for the warranty appointment is to take care of the bolts pushing up through the floor....

Momentary switch on my Powergear Slide

So it seems if I stop retracting then start again to finish the cycle, the extend (yes extend)side of the momentary switch fails. When I push the extend side nothing happens, but if I push the retract side again, quickly just to see what happens, I can hear a solenoid or something click. Now when I replace the switch, everything is OK...Now for the heck of it I did a continuity test and both sides of the switch and have continuity. The multimeter shows .6 ohms on both sides so the switch should be ok... The rig is a 2020 Jayco 26XD. The switch is a JR Products 12695 Mom-on/off/Mom-on seems like a very light duty switch for this size slide but that is what the factory installed. I'm missing something here..

RE: Got the bugs off...

Nice job. Just did the same thing, except I set up my "Hillbilly Staging" (1 six foot ladder with the 5th rung built up 4 inches on each side then slide with a 2x10 across to clear the hood). I am able to reach that difficult upper center section so I don't have to go up on the roof and hang down head first. Makes putting your favorite anti bug splatter wax/coating on (I use Rejex) much easier too.

RE: 2 sided screen door latch handle

Well Amazon delivered the Camco screen door opener yesterday. I followed the directions, except for dropping the hole down 1/4 of an inch on suggestions from the Amazon reviews of this product. The thing certainly isn't fancy but it works as intended. Now for the acid test. We're heading out to Scusset Beach State Reservation here in Ma. for four days starting this coming Thursday. We'll see how it can handle the action of the RV front lines.

RE: 2 sided screen door latch handle

Dutch. Great suggestion. Looks like just what's needed. I'll do an update after I install it.

2 sided screen door latch handle

My last class C had a Dexter screen door and a latch handle in both sides and a slide panel to provide access to the main door when both are closed. Nice. The new class C has one latch handle on the outside. I don't really like this set up. I've been searching for a changeover kit that has the inside and outside latch handles but so far I can't find anything. Is there such a changeover kit available?

RE: New England Travel

We live in Massachusetts. My wife and I are in full quarantine waiting for our covid 19 test results. We returned from a 25 day Midwest road trip yesterday (Aug 15) at around 8am. We had our test set up at a local hospital for yesterday too. Those tests cost us $150 each which we had to pay out of our pocket. Results in 24 to 72 hours. We'll see. Until we get the results we must fully quarantine. We filled out the required Mass travel form, and have been getting text messages from the state reminding us of the returning traveler requirements. My opinion on these rules really don't matter though. I just don't want to get fined $500 per day for not following them.. Before entering this state I would strongly suggest you look up these Mass travel rules that took effect Aug 1. Ok. To be fair. We took our tests yesterday aug 15, at 1020am. We just received our negative results at 305pm today, aug 16. I am impressed.

RE: Another Mile, Another Day

I too am with the 150-225 miles per day, interstate avoiding, camp set up by 200pm posters. I jump on the interstate to escape this east coast madness after that it's back roads,small towns and Mom and Pop Campgrounds as much as possible.

I-81 Road Work South of I-80 in Pennsylvania

I'm planning to head southbound through this area with My class C no tow. Looking at Google maps seems like the work is on the northbound side. Is that the case? We'll be leaving from the Tri State RV Park in Matamoras PA next Wednesday July 23 and I can just take Rt 209 through the Delaware Water Gap and pick up I-81 south of the work area. Longer ride but better than sitting in stopped traffic.

RE: trip to Idaho

If you are near the southern area of the state "Craters of the Moon" national monument is very interesting. Plenty of camping just up the road in Arco.

RE: Which Michelin for Class C

I was going to replace the Michelin M/S2's on my 22ft Class C with a set of Michelin Agilis Cross Country tires. The FMCA tire program offered a good discount for these Michelin tires. Then I traded in this RV and bought a 2020 Jayco 26XD. This year Jayco is running Hankook Dyna Pro HT 225/75r/16 115/112S M/S tires. I just picked this RV up last week and haven't put any miles on it yet, but I thought this information might help.

Related Question. Do you guys drain and isolate your hot water tank or sanitize that too..
