RE: Moving on up... to the mountains!

The things we liked aabout Payson was the airport diner, great food and on fridays all you can eat fish. The parade in August and the free music in the park. Was great. We stayed at the Payson Campground. They used to have old airplanes come in at the airport I think is August or Sept, don't know if they still do that. In Pine and Strawberry on the holidays they have Crafts shows and they are real nice. When you go into Pine on the right side of the street there is a gas station right across the parking lot on same side of street there is a little shop on the end of the building that sells some of the best Ice Cream we have ever had. Going more into Pine on the left side there is a grocery store that has great tasting pies. Congrats on your new home.

RE: Flashing rope light

When we camp out here in Az a lot of people have lites that are under their vehicle and trailer. Mostly in State parks. The reason why they have the lites on is cause the Pack Rats will eat the wiring in the engine bay and under the trailer. My friend had Pack Rats ate some wiring under his hood that went to his coil and made his truck run super bad. Cost him a pretty penny to get it fixed.

RE: A/C ducts

There are several videos on YouTube addressing the AC loss by checking the unit from inside. They all seem to tape and smooth corners and crannies that are not installed correctly. Then I would try the old fish tape and flashlight search and seizure of junk in the ducts. At the ends of the ducts, some folks place a block of sorts to stop all movement of air past the furthest opening. Some say the ducks just open into the ceiling cavity. I did that and it seemed to improve air flow into the bedroom area in a Keystone product. Whoooo knows? You might find a treasure up there. I have done this an our last three Jaycos and it has helped. Also took out all of the ceiling vents and wrapped Gorilla tape around the upper cone and put them back in. That seemed to help also.

RE: First barrage with the dealer

Was friends with a salesman selling trailer and was told that the msrp might be $40,000 but the dealer only pays about $26,000 for the trailer, that is why they can dicker with you. When you trade a trailer in they will give you low bluebook no matter how much you have kept it nice or added things to. thats where they make there money also.

RE: Mach 15 a/c not cooling well

On our Jayco 33 RLDS we had only had 1 15 thousand Btu A/c. I took all the vents out of the ceiling and wrapped tape around the cone part then put the vents back in. Also on the very farthest vents away from the a/c while the vents were out I took some styraphone and blocked the duct past the vent. So when the a/c is on the cold air does not go past the farthest vent and comes out. Made a big differance in the way the a/c works. Also installed digital thermostats. In 105 temps kept the trailer 75 degrees. nice and cool Did the same mods to our Jayco Bungalow and the new Jayfeather. Made one big difference.

RE: Vehicle for Towing

I towed a 35 foot 6 inch Jayco with a Ford Excursion. Towed like a dream as long as the wdh is set up properly. I would go with the Chevy Police cause just about everything in Heavy Duty

RE: Xchocks question

I tried the store bought brands when I first started. For the last 20 years or so, I ahve been using homemade ones. Two 4x6s cut into a wedge with a large 12-14' bolt and nut to tighten them. A lot of times I don't need them. When I am off level, I dig holes for the high side wheels. Lots of advantages to doing it like this. The TT cannot fall out of the holes, like ican off of blocks. The TT sits lower which is better for the steps and stability in wind. The only thing needed is a shovel which is a handy thing to have in camp anyway. Don't take this the wrong way but it would be kind of hard to dig holes under the high side wheels when you are in a state campground when the parking area is tar. Out in the boonies would be ok. I use a homemade set of 4x4 chocks and the store bought x-chocks and it works out just great. Never had the trailer even think about moving while unhitching it.

RE: Need a Dometic rooftop AC unit

Dark Sky From what I have been told you hit the nail on the head. Replacement only. Could be wrong.

RE: Marinated Hotdogs

I like dogs that are fried/grilled. Not so much boiled. Put dog in bun take Sweet Babys Ray dipping sauce with horseradish put on top. Then eat. Super good.

RE: snack food

I am from Connecticut and we used to have it every Thanksgiving and Christmas. When I fix it out here in Az our friends really liked it. They never had it before. My wife is from Penn and she never had it before.

snack food

Get a 8 oz philly cheese. A jar of spanish olives, and a bunch of celery. Let the philly cheese come to room temp. Take about 8 oz of olives chop up in small pieces. Mix the philly cheese and olives together. Take a stem of celery and put the mixture in the grove of the celery and have at it.
