RE: Gas water heater not turning on

I definitely have gas, I bled the system, and it's an Atwood water heater. I'm just sticking a log lighter when I hear the gas and it stays lit for a few seconds and then turns off.

Gas water heater not turning on

Hello and thanks to al ln in advance! Dry camping for first time with new trailer and could not take a hot shower? I smell the propane at the water heater and it tick tick tick ticks and nothing. I manually started water heater with a lighter, it lit but wont say on? The LP light switch stays on and after a few attempts the DSI FLT light comes on? Should I take it back to the dealer? Any troubleshooting tips?

RE: New trailer came off hitch!!

I was saying that my current hitch ball size is 2 5/16, so maybe a coupler adjustment?

New trailer came off hitch!!

So I bought a new 2018 Jayco jay feather travel trailer 6 weeks ago and the trailer came off the hitch as I was driving! Luckily I was going slow up a hill and the trailer fell onto the safety chains, then bumper, and skidded to the ground! I had it towed to the storage facility with no major damage. This was our first time out with the new trailer but I've pulled a trailer for the past 4 years with no such problem at all hitcing hitching up. I lowered the jack over the ball,engaged the ball and TV hitch, slid over coupler locking device, then slid a pin through the coupler locking device to prevent it from moving. The only difference from any other trip was that I did not use weight distribution bars as we were camping locally. My weight numbers are almost the same as my previous trailer? I'm good with staying within ratings numbers.Any insight of what could have gone wrong? Just when I was getting comfortable with towing! Thanks all in advance!

RE: S OR to Redwoods

Sorry for the confusion, we're taking the 101 from Van Damme over to Hearst Castle and was wondering the best route. My apologies again, I was rushing when I posted. I dont have to go all the way to the 5 to head south? We would prefer the 101 but just trying to know to best route through SF.

S OR to Redwoods

Hello and thanks all in advance! We are heading to Van Damme state Park in Northen California from southern OR and wanted to know if driving through San Francisco is reccomended?? We are pulling a 27 ft trailer? If not, can anyone recommend an alternative route that will get me back on the 101 to head towards Van Damme state park? We would like to be on the coast as much as possible. Thanks!

Hello and thanks to all in advance! So our starter trailer has treated us well but father time is catching up with the rig! I just started a quick search and MAN so many brands!!! I was wondering if some of you could share top brands or experiences shopping for a NEW travel trailer? We are looking for up to 25', at least one slide, lite (up to 5000 dry), open floor plan, and simple. We have a 2015 f150 and have to work with the truck we have?? Also any SoCal dealer recommendations? Thanks!!
