RE: WA-OR-CA - Hwy 101 or I-5 in winter?

299 is horrible. Best route is I5 to Longview,WA, and follow the signs to the coast. 101 south to just north of Ukiah and cut back to I5 on CA20. This gives you the best of the coast plus the redwoods

RE: Coax connectors

Just go to a big box store and buy quality connectors and a crimp tool

RE: WA-OR-CA - Hwy 101 or I-5 in winter?

Guaranteed on the coast you will have wind and rain. While itmis possible to see snow on the beach it is not as likely as snow delays over the Siskiyous. Take 101 and enjoy the weather and scenery.

Then be sure to get it out and run it hard for 30 or so miles each week

I didn't know dodge made trucks any longer... In all seriousness, do you idle your truck before shutting it? Oil coking in the turbo is bad. My diesel tech is adamant about it. I wait to my pre turbo EGTs is below 300. Actually from the picture it is not coking but rather soot inside the turbo. This is common of a truck that is used as a commuter car and not used as a work tool. Which is exactly what the OP is doing. To the OP, You really need to park the truck and get a small car for commuting to work. Otherwise you will be back at the dealers again in a year or two

RE: Shock absorbers...

Is this a rear kitchen model? Check air pressure in the trailer tires. Check air pressure on the trucks tires. Towing level? Check suspension for worn components that might be causing the problem. Does the trailer sway? If no, move on. If yes, have alignment checked, and have them check to be sure the axles are square to the pin. Shocks may or may not help. Air pin box will only help the clunking between truck and trailer.

RE: Winegard Trav'ler Direct TV antenna issue

Believe me it is going to get expensive! More than likely the control board in the head has a problem. Now might be a good time to try and make a deal with Winegard to replace it with the newest Trav'ler SWM.
donn0128 10/30/14 03:13pm Technology Corner

Yup! Common problem. Run with the EB on all the time, dont lug the motor, dont drive in town traffic without getting it on the highway and driving it hard for 20-30 miles every week. Either that or do the delets, which of course the federal government deemed illegal.

RE: USB 120 volt outlet

Neat but expensive idea for home. But with the lack of conventional outlets in the typical RV I see that as a major negative. Heck, we have a large power strip for all our gadgets and phone now.

RE: Windshield washer fluid in low temps?

Auto parts stores have washer solution with low freeze point, or winter blend.

RE: 5vr vs Bumper pull what are the differences

Easier pulling, shorter on road length are two big advantages. I have had both and have no desire to go back to a TT ever again.

RE: Exhaust Brake - when?

Leave it on at all times except on ice or snow covered roads. Reduces wear on your service brakes.

RE: Keeping Things Cold on the Road

Turn on the propane, bleed the air out by lighting a stove top burner. Turn the refer on, either auto or gas and go. The majority of us travel with the refer on. The rest? Guess their too paranoid to do it.

RE: free standing, or fixed dinette

Love oue free standing table and chairs. Have never taken the chairs outside, but it is possible. Couple of years ago I put underseat storage in them. Makes for some nice storage places. Also way more comfortable than the booth.

RE: Fleetwood Prowler Travel Trailer Switch Schematic?

First thing to check is battery connected wrong? As far as the switch, get out your VOM to verify my comments, but Two center wires will be 12VDC + and -. Two top wires should be when the switch is pushed 12VDC+ and - Two bottom wires when switch is pushed should be just the opposite 12VDC - and +. Basically all the switch does is reverse positive and negative leads to the motor

RE: 12 v problem

Disconnect the battery and check the voltage from the converter. I suspect it will be zero. Indicating a failed conveter or no voltage feeding the converter.

RE: Tire Wear

Cheap Chinese ST tires, and bend axles or spindles are the prime suspects. He needs to install some quality LT tires then go find a commercial trailer shop that can do axle alignments and have it gone through. OH and don't forget the crappy plastic bushing used on the spring eyes. Replace those with real bronze bushings while he is at it.
