Steve did you go with that charger you mentioned in the other thread? And did you hook it up per your No. 2 below, which I assume your battery store confirmed?

Have you turned the trailer's Use/Store switch to Store?

Thanks,

Peter

PS -- Good to hear about your progress Bob!

Peter - Yes, I did go with the NOCO G7200. I checked at the store I bought it at as well as corresponded with the manufacturer and others here on the forum. It can be either hooked up on the same battery and will charge both or be hooked up to the positive on one battery and the negative on the other. I ended up doing the second method. Either way works as long as the batteries are wired in parallel. Now that I have winterized and hooked up the charger, we have had unseasonably warm temperatures (nearly 90 forecasted for today) but I am prepared if old man winter blows in. And, you never know in Colorado. It can be 80 degrees one day and 20 the next day, this time of year.

Enjoy the sun while you can. We are having a 4 day cyclone run in the PNW. Good news all the eaves will be down by Sunday!

Welcome Peg!!

The 20 FC's are beautiful Airstreams and just the right size. No worrying about getting into smaller spaces and the floorplan is great!

Many Happy Trails to You!

Congratulations and welcome Peg, you'll love your 20. I love it, your first post is on the 20 footers thread. It is a long thread but contains a lot good info and tips.

Bob

Microwave and ducted air in the 20'

Looked at a new '20 and loved everything about it other than my wife wants a microwave, and this one had oven only. Can you get them in that model or is it oven only? It looks like the perfect size for weekend camping. Also is ducted air better in a trailer of this size or is it better on larger ones? I can save 10k buying a used '14 over a new one but it is pretty far to get it so I may just go with the '17.

Welcome to the forum and 20-footer thread!

I believe most new models have the microwave, not the gas oven.

Good luck!

Peter

Welcome SCbarber. My wife also has not been happy about the lack of a microwave oven in our 20 but, we use the oven because most of our camping is dry so no big deal for us. Even though it is only 20 feet, I would definitely buy the 17 model due to the ducted air system.

You can get the 20FC with a microwave or convection microwave and it goes under the cooktop where the current oven is located. I didn't want a microwave and mine came with the stove/oven combo. I rarely use the oven and survive just fine without a microwave.

I did not want a microwave and mine came with one. I asked about having it switched out and the dealer would do it with no charge for the oven. However, the cost for labor to switch the ovens was $565. Needless to say I still have the microwave.

An inexpensive microwave oven is easy enough to purchase at any variety store and can travel on the floor under the dinette table.
