General Q & A / Quicksilver 10.0 vs good pop-up camper
« Last post by Mariposa on September 24, 2020, 11:44:57 PM »
Hi! I have an older Jayco Eagle pop up camper (weight 2200 lbs) and I'm considering buying a Quicksilver 10.0 instead. If you've had both a good quality pop up and a QS, can you tell me which one you like the best and why?

Here's why I'm considering the switch: I bought the Jayco used and the previous owners did a really good refurbishing job - took out all the floors and cabinets, refaced everything, and it's really beautiful and fresh with no rot. But, the poles are causing problems, some of them are broken and we have to manually push them open or guide them closed, and the lift cables seem like they're about to break. It takes a good 45 minutes to set up and take down b/c of all the manual fixes we need to make. It's frustrating and worrisome. I thought about buying a newer model but I worry about the poles and cables breaking a few years down the road. It seems like the QS would solve those problems. As a single mom with two young kids, I need something really reliable.

Here's why I'm hesitating: sleeping in the Jayco is soooo comfortable! My kids and I love it. And I haven't heard anyone describe the QS as "super comfy." Having never gone car camping before -- only backpacking -- I shouldn't be so concerned about comfort! But now that I've slept comfortably while camping I don't want to give it up. Also: we bring along our 3 mountain bikes and that seems a bit of a problem with the QS (tho I've read some amazing ideas on the QS Facebook page).

I'd love to hear your comparisons, pros and cons, and why you're happier with one or the other! Thanks!!!

You may have the charging fuse between the truck and camper charger blown. Ours did that a lot when using the jacks without shore power. Anyway, I found the fuse, of all places, under the sink right to the left of the charger electrical panel. It was high in the under sink cabinet. There was no mention of the fuse placement in any manual I could find. So much of these campers were excellent, and then you find some bonehead construction detail. It was a 30 amp in a single fuse holder, like an afterthought.

We have a 2013 Camplite 10'. There is no problem sleeping in cabover on jacks, wiggles a little, but no biggie. Just keeping the camper low on the ground is the way to go and make sure jacks are all fairly even in taking the weight.

CampLite Truck Campers / Battery charging problem 2016 11.0S truck campet

Hello all, own a living lite 11.0S 2016 Truck camper and suddenly developed battery charge issues during a recent cross country trip. Battery will only charge via the shoreline and will not hold a charge. Questions, where is the battery located? I am sure I need to service it. Ie distilled water. But I cannot locate it. Yup, I feel real stupid, but, still smiling, love the camper. Ford logo model, on a one tonne ford.
