RE: Keeps kicking breaker..

Breaker tripping? I would start checking wiring. My guess you have a broken wire or a loose connection somewhere. What plug did you change? Cord end or what? I have seen a couple of stray strands cross over to another terminal and short things. Get your volt meter out and start checking continuity around the circuits until you find what is wrong. Just be sure to disconnect everything first.

RE: AC Voltage Through Frame/Stablizers

You guaranteed have a grounding issue. If your using an adapter of some sort, that is the first place I would go. They are infamous for failing at the ground lug. Also check polarity of the receptacle your plugged into It is possible that it is wired back words or there is no ground there.

RE: Slideout hydrolic pump failure

What failed? is it simply leaking or has it quit? Did you check power to the switch? Does the switch get power through it? So please tell me what you have or have not tried. And do you have a volt meter so you can check power? Or do you simply want to throw parts at the problem in hopes of fixing it.

RE: New roof! Should I use TPO or EPDM ??

Have you considered using a spray on bed liner? At least one high end RV manufacturer is offering it as an option.

RE: 07 Silverado

Good grocery getter, lousy for towing much more than a family and a tent trailer.

Subjective question. I like my Garmin Dezl760LMT. It has four modes, two of which you can customize for your vehicle. Others seem to like R-M, others think Tom Tom is great. Go check each brand out and pick the one you think will work best for you.

RE: seeking recomendations for a towing vehicle that will seat 7

Used or new? Used, a 2500 Suburban or Excursion would be the top two choices New, then it is a real C%^& shoot I understand GM killed the 2500 Suburban so that effectively killed it as a credible tow vehicle. Most pickups will configure for 5 or 6 seats only, so that ends that idea unless your taking a second vehicle.

RE: Looking at a 2001 Cedar Creek 30 RLS. small leak

Aluminum frame so that wont be an issue. There is still wood in the floor and inside wall board. So it could be an easy fix or a lot of work.

RE: conversion of camper vans to 4 wheel

There used to be companies thst did that. As i remember it added about 10K to the base price of the van. I assume this is Ford based? So searching out front axle assembly, transfer case from a donoe truck should be doable. Just takes a lot of time to engineer mounts etc to connect everything. Lastmissue would probably be the computers. Getting them to understand the changes could bea daunting task.

RE: Should my 5th wheel have shock absorbers?

Still not offered as standard on the smaller trailers. Heck our 2002 Arctic Fox did not have them either.

RE: Umpqua Lighthouse Campground & Satellite TV

Like most of the coast parks there is lots of trees. Dont expect to get a signal unless your really lucky.

RE: Should my 5th wheel have shock absorbers?

Should it? Probsbly notespeciallyin thst size and age. Will it help to have them? Yes. But unless it has shock mounts it is unlikely if it was even offered as an option.

RE: 1998 Fleetwood Avion Valve

There should actually be three valves. One each for how and cold low point drains and one for the potable water tank.

RE: Starcraft 14 R/T furnace system questions

A typical 35K BTU propane furnace will burn approx 1/2 gallon of gas per hour. I just filled one of my propane tanks and it took only 5 gallons after three weeks. Battery is going to be your biggest problem. A typical 12VDC deep cycle battery might last one night IF your really careful with power management. Your going to then need a way to fully recharge the battery.

RE: Privacy curtain

Accordion doors are a much nicer alternative to a curtain. Big box stores have them along with other places. You might also want to check with the MFG and see what they have as an option and where they get them. Then call their supplier and try to buy one directly from them.

RE: Water coming into the slideout

This is why I always leave my slide side just a but lower. That makes absolutely no sense? If your slide seals were properly designed by the manufacturer and are in good shape and actually sealing the opening there should be no moisture leaking in. To the OP. I would suggest that you do a Seal Test after a thorough inspection of the seals. Any nicks or cracks in the seals can allow water in.

RE: cell phone booster

T Mobile is your biggest problem. Their service is just too limited for long term Rvers. Most go with Verizon for the superior coverage in almost all of the US. There is a current thread running covering amplifiers that you might want to look up HERE

RE: 1985 companion by kit, 236..need some advice

Your biggest concerns will be all appliances work, leaks causing wood rot, roof condition. At that age the roof is likely toast, possibly water leaks and frame rot, plus good chances the refer is DOA or on it's last legs. Roof replacement alone could cost you more than the trailer is worth. New refer is easily a thousand dollars. Wood rot could make it a total wreck good knot for scrap.
