CampLite Travel Trailers / Re: Water heater
« on: May 19, 2020, 05:47:27 AM »
We just purchased a 2017 16 tbs livin lite. We cannot get the water heater to work. What is the secret?

Hope you were able to figure this out. Still.
It could be the heating element is bad. Have you ever had the switch on with no water in the tank? This way element will be damaged in a very short time. But it can be other things. Also you can try is to push in on the reset located on water heater if you have one.
We bought our livinlite with a different water heater (previous owner upgrade) that works both on propane and electricity and electric option was turned off by the default. Worth checking as well. Take off the cover to the hot water heater and look for a small (normally black) rocker switch. Make sure it is in the "On" position.

CampLite Travel Trailers / Re: Jackknife loveseat options

Does anyone have any ideas for placing alternative seating in lieu of the factory loveseat? (pictures welcome)

The cushions for the seat and the back are different densities, so when it’s pulled into the “bed” position, there’s a pillowy side by the window and the seat is hard. I’d like to place a couple of single seat recliners there, or maybe (smell the irony) a dining setup, or even get a more level jackknife loveseat. Any suggestions on where to procure said alternatives would be great. However, it’s a fairly unique size, and Craig’s List is not a good option. I would consider new RV furniture, or even stuff not necessarily intended for RVing.

Decided not to start another topic and, well, resurrect this one instead.
We would like to remodel our dining zone, so we have a similar question - is there's someone who replaced their sofa's with recliners successfully?
I tried to attach a default K-Z (2018 301THR) scheme to the post but it didn't show up. The sofa itself is 72".
And just as Syrah I'd like to know which recliners (I mean, brand) are considered to be the best for a replacement?

Thanks in advance (from both of us).

Hello LivinLite members,

I'm Raoul from Montreal. I'm French-speaking. So, please forgive me for making mistakes in this email. English is not my mother tongue.

I'm here because I'd like to find a solution to a problem I have with my 2014 CampLite 21BHS. As some of you might know, 2014 Camplite models have a aluminum exterior (it's all aluminum, even the roof). Nowadays, the new CampLite models have exterior walls made of vacuum fiberglass.

The problem I have is that the entrance door has been damaged and must be repaired (fix a dent and repaint the door). I did try to find a RV shop in Canada to fix the aluminum but none of the dealers I called can do it.

Did anyone of you have to fix the aluminun exterior "skin" of their trailer? If so, I'd like to know where you had the work done. I did mention to my insurance company that I might have to go to the USA to have the repair done, and they have agreed to foot the bill.

I'd appreciate you let me know if you can.

Thank you!


Raoul, your English is completely fine.
But do you have any updates? We replaced a door in our previous camper - just bought a new one from the dealer. I believe that made doors for Camplite models (2014 included), so maybe they could guide you. Good luck if you're still looking for a solution.

Hey everybody. I'm Mike Sokol from RVelectricity and the No~Shock~Zone. I don't currently own a Livin' Lite Toyhauler, but I'll be looking for one soon to act as a test bed for a bunch of my RV Electricity seminar demonstrations. I think the all-aluminum construction and toyhauler layout will be perfect for my outdoor demonstrations. I'll post details later, but for now my wish list is a 6x15 or 7x20HJ toyhauler with a fried electrical system. That's because I need to put in my own inverter, lithium batteries, generator, fuel cell, air conditioner, swing compressor RV refrigerator, and 30/50-amp transfer switch. In short, I'll have to yank out the existing electrical components and install new ones I can test and demonstrate. In the meantime, let me know if you have any complex electrical problems as that's what I teach about in my articles, blogs, seminars and videos.

Hi Mike!
Are you going to post your results and/or articles here? Or maybe you have a blog (so I could follow your updates)? I'm really interested in electronic upgrades, since, well, there's always room for improvement.
Thanks in advance.
