We just came back from our second excursion with our 2006 Flagstaff 831RLSS and have some questions.
#1. This was our first time to use the water system. When we filled the tank and turned on the pump, the water shot out of the city water connection. I finally put a shutoff valve on it and that stopped. We had a time getting pressure built up until my sister-in-law's husband looked at the system and turned the inside valves (inside the cabinet) in the correct direction. OK! When we left the campsite to come home, I took the shutoff valve off and the water shot out again! Should there be some type of back flow valve on the water system to prevent this? If so, where would it be?
#2. Everything appears to be OK with the electrical, but sometimes (especially in the evening) the converter seems to be "cycling". The lights will go bright and then dim - the converter is making a humming sound while this is going on. Is this a converter problem or do we need to replace the battery?
#3. We have had some success in stabilizing the trailer after it is parked. We have the X-chocks installed (that helped a lot) and we discovered another helpful solution. The braces that came with the unit to "lock" the slide while traveling make great stabilizers UNDER the slide after it is out. We had seen some slide jacks in a catalog and thought the braces would work just as well. They did make some difference. We also saw a step jack that could be used under the entry steps - a small hydraulic jack worked wonders to keep the step from moving up and down.
All in all it was a great trip and we are enjoying our excursions. We are still learning about the trailer and may have more questions as we go along.
We appreciate any comments or suggestions for our questions.
