If they're any thing like the ones that came in our Jayco Alante 26AY, they are comfortable. Yours looks like it has a better upholstery than ours has.

Just my opinion;
We take possession of our new Hurricane 34J tomorrow. We looked hard at the Jayco 31R and the Winnebago 35B. I have to admit; I was Surprised, in that I thought the quality of the upholstery in the Thor was the best.

Thanks again for your Mod suggestions and encouragement!!

Hi Dino, We took delivery of our 29M in November 2017 and have not had much time to take her out or add some of the mods I've been seeing posted, some of which you, Jerry (HalfPrice), and others have done are great! We are going to retire soon and will be spending a lot more time in the RV and doing the mods.


I'm going to do some of the mods that I've seen from you, Jerry and others, first being the CHF mod and adding the Safe T Plus.


I have a question about the Progressive EMS 50amp Hardwired install that I see you did. Was is difficult to install? Can you provide me information on any issues you might have ran into during the installation?

Hi Eric, Not sure if you came up with a solution for the kitchen trash can.


We're looking at this Simplehuman in-cabinet can at Bed Bath & Beyond which just might fit. The measurements of this one are close to the size of the Kitchen cabinet in the Windsport 29M.


Here is the link:

Hope you find something that works! Happy Camping!

You will probably smell the bleach for a couple of days but that's ok.

There is a reset button under the bed for the Rapid Camp. Make sure the remote is charged. You may only need to push the reset button and not need a reconfigure.

Run all your water lines, and from time to time look under the mh to make sure there are no leaks. Don't forget the outside sink and remember it has a mac pump to drain that sink. The switch is under the cabinet. At night turn on all your lights inside and out. Make sure they are all working.

Keep a notebook on the dash or table. Just camp and have fun. When you see/find something that needs fixing write it down so you don't forget.

I've only had very minor things that needed warranty to fix. More adjustments then broke. Water heater electric element did go out so run your water heater in both gas and electric at different times to make sure they both work.

Have fun Jerry
Hi Jerry, we have the 2018 Windsport 29M and noticed that the Rapid Camp remote only extracts the jacks.


Thor says that this how the remote is supposed to work. Does your Rapid Camp only extract the jacks also?


Can you tell me exactly where on the bed the reset switch is located?

BTW, really love all the mods you and everyone else share! Love this thread!

Thanks,

My remote operates the jacks, awning, awning light, slides, and generator.

Mine controls the slide, awning, lights, and generator. Not the jacks

I never use the Rapid Camp. Good sales gimmick but i dont think its needed.

The rapid camp panel is under the bed along with all the other electronics. Saw it the day i picked up the mh becuse mine wasnt working. Cant tell you what it looks like its been to long. Cant even remember if its marked.

Take the panel off your bed and look around. If i remember correctly it was bolted above the electrical panel


The only thing rapid camp would be good for imo is openning the slide to make sure it doesnt hit anything. But mine losses reception and tge slide moves and stops multiple times while coming out. So i never use it

Just installed my love seat last night. Yes the pull cord is hard to pull. I found if i push the foot pad in a little the cord pulls a little easier. With that said i have only openned the chair 6 ir so times. I still have work to do on tge slide vefire the job is done and i can relax in them

I don't know if it retracts the jacks, I have always done that from the control panel inside the coach before leaving. I will have to check that out. It does however, put the slides in and out, put the awning in and out, put the awning light on or off, and starts the generator. I have never had a problem with mine and always use it when putting the slides out to make sure there isn't any obstructions.

We have dual A/C in our 2018 Windsport 29M.


Is this Digital thermostat also a replacement for the bedroom A/C thermostat?


Thanks,
