Took the new camper out this weekend

Well we took our first trip in our new 2017 Grey Wolf 26dbh and it was pretty darn good. So nice to have the extra room. The only things I noticed was the shower made a whistle noise when we used it. The stabilizers didn't seem to keep the trailer from having some wiggle and the water pressure was low. Now I do have a water pressure regulator that is preset to 40-50psi and is that to low? Any inputs on any of the above things would be appreciated.

Had the same water issue with ours this weekend (1st time out also) I took the pressure regulator off but still had the external filter on and all was good!

First Time Out

I also took the 'water saver' pieces off of each fosset and really helped
A lot, even the shower valves.

I swapped to a pressure regulator with a higher psi and use rubber chocks pulling the trailer tight on two then putting the 2nd set in place behind the tires. Stiffens the trailer. Also added an Oxygenic's shower head for the shower. Love the fold up fence. Nice tt

Really like the new 2017 paint job on the Cherokee's. nice gated community you have there. I have found the water filter often lowers the pressure enough, but still use a regulator at the connection to RV.

You may want to get a set of X-Chocks for the wiggle. They should take about all of the wiggle out from front to back. The best thing for all wiggle (front-back and side-side) would be a set of JT Strong Arm stabilizers (Or any other make). Good luck and Happy RVing!

I added a set of Mid Ship jacks in front of the wheels and that takes the shake out totally! I still use the X-chocks too, but I don't think they did that much. The 15 lb dog was shaking the trailer when she walked from one end to the other.

I really like your fence, what is it and where did you get it?

Thanks for the info and definitely will try it out. Had to get the fence for my girls as they are not used to being kept on a leash

Where did you get the Mid Ship jacks and a possible photo so I can figure mine out. Thanks

I ordered them from etrailer.com . I don't have my camper at home and probably won't for at least a few more weeks because it's at the dealer being worked on. Simplest install imaginable though, there's not much to figure out. I mounted them about a foot in front of the tires (it's as half way as you can get on the unit) and mounted them to the frame the same way that the factory ones are mounted. I used both self tapping screws and one nut and bolt (guessing its a safety thing). The easiest way to do it is to expand the jack all the way under the location you want to mount it and then your hands are free to drill the holes.

those are what I used. Warning, they're reverse thread.
