RE: Roof top A/C not cooling properly

My main 15K unit in my 2012 trailer started to cool poorly towards the end of last year.... Even began to drip water into the interior when using the "dump" feature. This unit never did cool as awesome as the 13.5K bedroom unit... I checked the interior filter - was basically Ok... Pulled exterior cover and took my air compressor hose to blow out the condenser coils - basically OK as well... Checked interior plenum for mixing of in/out air... Basically OK, but one spot could use some re-taping. Checked the exterior box over the evaporator coils - looking for mixing of air... Reaped. When checking plenum and evaporator coils, found iced up... Could potentially be result of air mixing... But more than likely caused by low refrigerant charge. Neighbor is commercial heat/air/refrigeration guy... He tested it... Said was basically empty... He charged it (R4) and the exterior line began to sweat and get "beer can cold" like it should. Nowhere did any line exhibit the typical sign of leakage... Dirty or oily residue.... Has it been low it's whole life? Is there some leak that is somewhere hidden? Who knows.....It's cooling great now., Like it should have all along. How long will this last? Dunno... But it's been cooling excellently for the last two weeks.

RE: Good ole BlowMax tires

How can I be expected to "watch them carefully" as I am driving down the highway on a hot day in heavy traffic ? I had no problem doing it. I can do it, but after the first 15 minutes or so, I do tend to get dizzy.

RE: Good ole BlowMax tires

You do realize that all the reports of bad blowmaxs have been the "E" rated ones run near max. this is not true Please post the conflicting reports. No need to post anything to prove how my statement is true. Common sense however, tells me that your statement is not true. ALL reports of bad blowouts (what's a bad blowout vs a good one?) have been E rated that were run near max? You analyzed every single one of them? And they ALL were near max? No you didn't and no there were all not near max. I had a blowout on an E rated one and I was not at max. So essentially because I reported one (that you must have missed since you reviewed all of them) and my failure makes your statement false. And I have what I suspect is a pretry fairly common sized 5th wheel considering there are so many Montannas on the road.... A similarly sized 14.5K or 15K GVWR trailer.... I have 10,300 lbs on my trailer axles.... Well below the 14,080 overall tire capacity.

RE: Carlsbad caverns

Another vote for Brantley Lake State Park. Quite nice and very quiet. ;) If you arrive after dark, you'll feel like you're driving an eternity off the highway on a 2-lane blacktop to nowhere.... It's 5 miles off the road. We went this past February. Elevators are NOT working in the caverns... You must hike back UP the entire thing... Tentative date to have them turned back on is May 31. https://www.nps.gov/cave/planyourvisit/conditions.htm

RE: How do I stay internet safe when travelling?

Or to put it another way, You DON'T have a certified example of a person who got their bank account hacked because they were using public wifi. I have examples, but I cannot find the Internet example certification authority.

RE: Non renewal

I haven't used a check in years. Online bill pay is the way to go. I have "checking" account... but I don't even have checks.. LOL

RE: Non renewal

I still use checks. Not sure why anybody would question that. Not everybody likes to give open access to their bank accounts online. If your money is in a bank, your account is (generally) no more or less secure if you elect to use on-line banking or not. The bank itself is a target. Customers using online access only marginally increases your chances of fraud. HOWEVER.... And this is the part I do not understand... I guess the older generation that thinks like the person I am quoting - simply has not thought this through.... Speaking of "give open access".... When paying your bills the "traditional way" with a physical check.... You've placed your account number, routing number, name, address, phone number, ORIGINAL SIGNATURE, and perhaps a driver's license number... in an envelope (which looks suspiciously like a bill) and send it through the hands of untold individuals between point A and point B. It amazes me the lack of thought this is given.

RE: How do I stay internet safe when travelling?

As someone who has worked in IT for 25 years, I giggle at these threads on this type of forum.

RE: Gas at the big boy pumps @ Flying J

You will never find gasoline at the truck lanes at a truck stop (i.e. FlyingJ, Loves, T/A, Pilot, etc).... Many will have gas/diesel at an RV lane.... In most cases, you'll have to find a pump on the outer edge of a regular car island.

RE: Would selling this trailer be irresponsible?

Me thinks too many people can't mind their own business. And yeah, I had no idea we have so many lawyers!!!

RE: Are RV forums dying?

My favorite type of thread... Original post: "I have a brand X 5er and am having trouble with my brand Y fridge running on gas....." Most responses: "ZOMG what truck do you have?? YOU'RE GONNA DIE!!!!" "You should just use bags of ice" ^^^ That my friends is what I believe curtails posting. The "regular crowd" can not help but editorialize as opposed to just stick the the technical question at hand.

RE: She's getting broke in

what's the towing capacity? Apparently, it's at least 36,000 combined.

RE: Towing Overweight???

Accidents can happen to anyone at anytime. Negligence is deliberate behavior contributes to the accident. Sliding through a red light in itself is not negligent. Sliding through with bald tires can be considered negligent. Sliding through with a RV that is too heavy for the truck as determined by the manufacturer can be considered negligent. There is no such thing as an "accident". There are only "on purposes". If you are behind the wheel, you are responsible for everything. Any accident involves negligence... Otherwise they wouldn't happen.

RE: Slide-Outs @ Walmart

The alternative thread posted would be by one of these curmudgeons..... Might go something like this.... "Just about fell asleep last night when this noisy diesel truck pulled in to the campground with his headlights right in my bedroom window..... Wife made me go check it out.... Wasn't long before a bunch of kids unloaded and were chattering and laughing loudly while mom/dad got the camper setup.... They took forever and made so much noise, I didn't think I'd ever get back to sleep.... To make matters worse, they restarted the exact same process and noisy commotion at 5:45 a.m. to hit the road again. Not sure why they couldn't wait until 10 a.m. like normal people (like me). I'm going to complain to the management after I take my Geritol."

RE: Hotwater heater on Propane

Was the water already HOT when you turned on the propane? Maybe it didn't fire right up because it didn't' need to??
