RE: A warning if you've got a Camco 50 amp replacement male plug

Just a reminder to go along with that. Be sure to NOT hot plug in. Shut off the pedistal breakers before plugging in. This helps prevent burning the contacts, which then would require a new plug.

RE: 1983 Real-lite - Quality Camper or not? Frame material

Build quality on a 34 year old camper? Worry about leaks. The rest is not worth worrying over

RE: New guy buying his first toyhauler - have concerns

Good Lord. Your buying a 40 foot trailer that could potientially weigh as much as 18K pounds! You should have concerns. There are only a couple of trucks currently on the market capable of handling that much load. One is the newer Ram duallies with the 30K towing capacity setup. But for that much toy hauler you might be better off buying a MDT.

RE: Truck Advice

Biggest mistake most folks make is not buying enough truck. Too many buy marginal or undersized vehicles because they look at the wrong specs. Buy your truck to handle the absolute maximum weight your load might weigh. That might mean a dually. Or it might mean a 1500. But getting it right the first time can save a lot of aggrivation in the future.

RE: newby... a few questions

30A service will not allow you to run two ACs. On 30A, switch the water heater to gas, refer to gas and run the AC. Otherwise you have a good chance of tripping the main breaker.

RE: First mountain coming up

What chassis and drive train? Generally speaking, manually shift the transmission to maintain speed at the 2500 RPM number you were told. Going down hills the general truckers rule is go down in the same geat you used going up. DO NOT ride the brakes going down. If you do you will find yourself with no brakes. Instead, brake hard to bring yourself to 10-15 MPH below your desired speed, get off the brakes and let it coast using engine compression braking to help hold speed. Once you get above the posted speed, brake hard again. Repeat as necessary.

RE: Water heater

Just be very careful when changing them. The wires are routed behind the sheet metal face and the edges are very sharp. Cutting the wires is easy to do.

RE: No 12 VDC Cabin Power

I have never heard of 12VDC going thru the generator. Do you have a battery cut off switch? In motor homes they call them salesman switches. That is most likely your problem.

RE: Honda Generator Help Low voltage at Idle

If I remember correctly voltage is RPM sensitive. The idle RPM is a bit too low. Any compentent Honda dealer should be able to check for other problems, service it, and have it running right for you.

RE: What is the distance from back of cab to center of hitch?

Hitch location should always be directly over the axle. Look at any class 6,7, or 8 truck and thats where they are placed.

RE: Is this enough truck?

Power wagons are not the best towing platform. They were setup as factory off road vehicles for little boys with too much money wanting factory setup. Get a standard 2500 and depending on configuration you would be good for either trailer

RE: Towing on 2010 ram 6.7 diesel

10s are good as long as the PO did all the updates. You need to drive it like you stole it

RE: Higher end brands?

Lance and,Arctic Fox are two that come to mind. Airstream of course. But who wants to pay their prices.

RE: Directv receiver settings

On the road you simply go to setup page and follow the instructions. You should practice at home first to be sure of how to do it. At home the receiver automatically finds the dish. BTW what receiver model?

RE: No power from shore

If you have a volt meter and know how to use it, you should easily be able to trace power. Just be careful, but following power to the point there is no power is pretty simple.

RE: Snow on the way for the west

4 inches of Snow on the ground south of Bend last night caused numerous accidents.

RE: Siding question?

My guess he is referring to Frilon. If you have delamination, you have serious problems. Frilon is pressure glued to a substraight, usually plywood, which is then bonded to the frame. What has probably happened is water got in, causing delamination between the plywood and frilon. There is no cheap easy fix. Wood rot, and serious mold are only your first problems. You will need serious skills to attempt a fix. Hope you did not spend much for this trailer.
