1st Camping Trip in Our Windsport
Just a couple of observations and a question after our 1st trip in our "new" Windsport 34J. This saga started back in early November when we ordered it. When it finally came in it was not what we ordered (Thor's fault, not CW). Found one in PA that would work and local CW folks went above and beyond to get that one for us. 1st time we filled the fresh water tank it flooded the camper so back to CW along with a list of stupid glitches that should have never gotten past quality control (oops, forgot that Thor doesn't have a QC program). Long story short was it sat around CWs in PA and here in Alabama for about 3 months before we finally got to use it. And now that we have used it we can say that we love it!
- Love the way it drives (much better than the Class C we had)
- Love the real hot water tank (loved our Class C but HATED the tankless hw.
- Can't believe it doesn't have drip rails (the AC condensation ran down the
awning and dripped on the picnic table - dumb!)
- Overall, a great experience and we can't wait to start getting some
longer trips in
Plugged in to shore power or running down the road, the Xantrex meter reads 13.6 volts. But as soon as you remove power the voltage drops to 12.4 volts. I'm still learning about 50 amp systems but I suspect that while sitting around CW during that 3-month window the batteries were allowed to go into deep discharge which probably ruined them. Is that a likely guess?
