Update...Well, you live and learn. I bought the pop up 2 yrs ago for hunting wma's. I knew very little. I may have over paid considering the damage I had, but with within a week or two I should have it all fixed. The side boards on the roof were bad and had been scabbed with misc plywood and jerry rigged. I have since rebuilt the box and it straighted out the roof. I did remove the A/C and plan to reinstall it after I add some support for the roof. The roof is in good shape, but the weight of the A/C is probably a design flaw. My plan is to use 3/4 square steel tubing and bolt it to the roof system and paint it white to match the roof ceiling. I will be heading to 3 way campers tomorrow to pick up some rubber trim seal(or whatever that stuff is).The canvas and interior was in such great shape that's what really sold me. Hopefully,by next week I will have a great non leaking camper that is worth what I paid for it.
I noticed that the heating unit on the the Duo Therm unit was all rusted up. When in use it would blow light warm air. I thought it might need replacing, but I heard that these units really did not produce that much heat. They were pretty much about as good as a hair dryer. Is that accurate?
Just wondering has anyone ever wired in a battery. My jayco did not come with a battery but has the converter box already installed and has a switch to go from a direct , conventional, or battery or something like that. I'm sure my owners manual has something about just havent looked at it . I will be sure to post some pictures once I get it all fixed....thanks
