Picking up 2017 30KQBSS Monday

Hey All!

Just checking in, we are picking up our 2017 Wildwood 30KQBSS on Monday May 29th.

We are all so excited to kick off our camping season soon. Our site this year will have water and electricity so thats wonderful, sewer dumping is not on site but is at the front of the park or they will empty your trailer for a fee on its site as well.

We sold our older model Jayco Popup last fall and have been wondering what will come next ever since then

I know a little about trailers but not a whole lot, I will be sure to try out all the systems of the trailer and run down through a PDI checklist before we sign the papers.

Any owners out there with tips on what to look for or good to know information that would be much appreciated!


Thanks everyone!
Cory

Take your time and don't let your excitement cloud your good judgement. Any items that need to be corrected will get done much much faster if the dealer has not been paid yet ( paperwork signed).

I did not, but I will make a list of these known issues to look out for.

I had not really thought about water damage on a new trailer.

Congratulations on your new purchase. Check to make sure the entry door closes to your liking and the screen door also latches securely. Many times they are sticking/rubbing or are just out of alignment.

We did take it on monday, it was a long day at the dealer. They had to fix a couple minor issues some loose bolts on the awning arms and the bumper cap wouldn't fit inside properly.

We had a very thorough pdi and explanation of how things work and the maintenance required to keep it and us happy campers.

I then towed it to our seasonal site and took me about 30 minutes to figure out how to get the ball to release lol. Little tip release the hitch ball pin and latch after chocking the wheel but before you start to raise the tounge jack!

I had to borrow some leveling wood from family at the campground which I will have to replace with my own tonight. Just wondering how long I should cut them, I want two peices for one side to go under both of the wheels.

Does anyone know the distance from front wheel contact to rear wheel contact on the ground?


Thanks in advance!!

I'm not sure what measurement you are asking for?

But some advice... make the boards nice and big to reduce the amount of settling during the summer. Small boards may sink into the ground and then you have to re-adjust to level the camper
