  1. Slightly and lovingly used is the best description of this 2012 Lance 2285. This Lance has some unique benefits to it, not counting the low price. With two convenient entries. At a lean 4200 pounds, this is a lot of trailer for its size! Through the aft door you have what is the equivalent of a great room. The large corner galley has two windows for an expansive view and the "Super Slide" dinette is opposite 2 Barrel chair swivel rockers. The entire space is conveniently situated for enjoying the centralized entertainment center. Forward is a private bedroom with bath, vanity, walk-around standard queen-sized bed and a second entry door.From the manufacturer:The 2012 Lance 2285 is the largest in the Lance travel trailer line up. The 2285 features a "Super-slideout" - 54 x 78 inch U-shaped dinette. The two entry doors are a distinct advantage rarely found in other models. You can enter or exit the trailer from the galley or the bedroom. There is also a massive storage compartment at the front of the trailer accessible from either side. Features: (walk-around) full size queen bed, Rear kitchen, Two entry doors, Large center-located wardrobe, Pass-through exterior storage, Under-bed storage, Barrel chair swivel rockers.

  2. What is the advice on using a pressure washer on the lowest setting to flush out the hot water tank?
  3. We just bought the Carefree Vacation'r Screen Room and will give it a try next week during Spring Break. It looks like most if not all of the comments are positive. Thanks for the input, I'll let you know how our trip and the Carefree Vacation'r Screen Room works out.
  4. Just to piggyback on Jack's response and article, I have found similar info and a YOUTUBE demonstration on how to test and remedy a floating neutral generator. Thanks for all the help and info. I now know more stuff about my generator/RV than I ever thought was necessary! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-bTLdMjuqU
  5. After reading the technical info, I was unsure of my set up. I called the manufacture of my generator, Champion, and asked them. They said that my model has been used with many RVs, and at any rate, plug it in and see if it works, there will be no harm to either the RV or the generator. Sounds eminently practical! If it doesn't work, they said to attach a ground wire to the provided connection on the front of the panel and attach it to a stake in the ground. They don't believe this is necessary however. Also, I search the customer reviews on Amazon of people who purchased the same generator and found reviews of people using this generator with their RV with no reported problem. So far ... so good.
  6. I apologise for the multiple postings, this is my first posting and I was not sure which area to use.

  8. Thank you all for your advice, especially Stanley P. for his suggestion about the Charge Wizard. I called my Trailer manufacturer and found out that the power converter in my unit was a Progressive dynamics with a built in charge Wizard. So now, all I have to do is plug the shore line into my generator and let the power converter mind the batteries. I would have never thought of finding this out without all of your help.
  9. I have 2 Interstate 12v deep cycle batteries and no onboard Generator or solar panel. I have a 1500 watt gen to use to charge my batteries when boondocking. I will use a 8 AMP 12v Stanley 3 stage charger to charge my batts. Should I disconnect the batts from the coach while charging? Any advice on this procedure? I could also plug the shore line into the gen, but I think the charger would be more efficient in charging the batts. Any help would be appreciated.
  10. We have a 25' TT and would like to expand our living space. Has anyone used an awning add on room to expand their living space like the Carefree Vacation'r Screen Room? How has it worked? What problems can I anticipate?
