RE: Fifth Wheel tires

Good reply to a first time poster. Probably part of the reason forum participation has dropped off so much in the last few years while RV ownership has rapidly grown.

RE: What is this?

On mine it is a simple 2 connector wall plate with a loop cable connecting the two. One side comes directly from the outside coax connector for park cable or satellite. The other side connects to internal coax cable that goes to the antenna amp switch and on to the TVs. Leave the loop on to route park cable signal to your internal wiring. Remove the loop, connect your satellite antenna outside, connect your satellite receiver to the appropriate coax on that all plate and get satellite TV.

RE: Fifth Wheel tires

Best tires depends on weight of your trailer, wheel size, and wheel air pressure rating as a minimum. Post that info for accurate answers. And ignore the “cute” responses.

RE: Vandalized Windshield

That is scottg’s way of saying you should have posted in the Class A forum rather than the Forum Posting Help & Support forum. I see this is your first post so you will learn posts like the above happen too often.

RE: FIX CAPTCHA NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am on this site several times each day. Probably more than I should. And usually post at least once a day. And I have never seen captcha on this forum. Rare occasions on other web sites, but never here. Guess I am doing something different.

RE: Nine Dying Diesel Fads

Definitely agree on #9. Not as common as once was, but still see a few (usually the young immature "cowboy" types) loving to smoke the vehicles around them leaving a traffic light. And those huge pipe extensions or similar sized stacks coming up out the bed? :S

RE: Aftermarket Puck System

Mine is factory installed and does have the center puck for the gooseneck ball. But I have never towed, or intend to tow, a gooseneck trailer. And don’t have the expensive special ball to put in there. Still, if the price difference for the basic install is minimal it would be there and ready if for some reason the need came up in the future.

RE: JT Strongarm setup with 45 degree rear stabilizers

The front has two struts to reduce side to side movement and two to reduce front to back movement. The two at the rear should be installed to reduce side to side tail wiggle since the front ones can’t stop that.

RE: JT Strongarm setup with 45 degree rear stabilizers

Mine has an enclosed underbelly and I did not want to cut into that to find a place to attach the struts. So I made a cross piece from 2" sq tube, cut at an angle on each end, and bolted that to the frame on each side. Then attached the strut mounts to that cross piece. https://i.imgur.com/jygOIQwl.jpg width=550

RE: A question about campground reservation.

There is a downside to allowing site specific reservations. If someone reserves site 15 for Monday thru Wednesday and someone else reserves site 15 for Friday thru Sunday, then the likelihood of finding someone to take site 15 for Thursday only is likely slim unless an overnighter is passing thru. Multiple single night openings compound the problem. So possible lost revenue. If the park chooses the sites they can more efficiently stack the reservations to minimize single night openings.

RE: 50a to 30a question

Going deeper. If you lost the neutral wire, then the devices connected to H1 and the devices connected to H2 would effectively be wired in series. As such, if the impedance of the devices on H1 was EXACTLY the same as the impedance of the devices on H2, there would be no damage to the devices on loss of neutral. In such a case, there would be no flow thru neutral even if the connection was intact. A basic voltage divider splitting the voltage of 120 vac to each side. Now, if the impedance of the devices on H1 was twice the impedence of the devices on H2, then H1 would be hit with 160 vac and H2 would only get 80 vac. Of course 160 vac is enough to fry 120 vac rated devices. You would not get the full 240 vac on any devices on loss of neutral unless the total impedence on one hot leg or the other was zero, or essentially a dead short. :B

RE: Automated call screening feature to block automated dialers

I have a great system that works. With call display, if I do not recognize the caller or number I do not answer. If it is important they will leave a message and I can call them. Most robo-calls do not leave messages. And if they call more than once I add that number to my Block Caller list.

RE: 50a to 30a question

....., or if we just need to treat it like we currently do and turn off the AC if we need to run the microwave.Yes. Although if you run the fridge and water on propane you can probably run the microwave at the same time the air is running. X2. Careful planning and only running one A/C and you will have little problem. Worse case you trip the park 30 amp breaker, reset it, remember what you were doing that caused it, and don't do it again. Been there with our 50 amp 5er.

RE: To delete or not to delete ?

Only do it if you want to deal with the legal issues. It is illegal to modify the manufacturer emissions systems. In Texas, and probably other states, it is illegal to sell a vehicle in which the emissions system has been "tampered with".

RE: wiring question

Use splices like this and you will not have to cut the wires. Attach a pigtail to each wire and use your voltmeter to determine polarity. Then attach your camera wires to the correct pigtails.

RE: Traveling with a pet

It all depends on the dog. Have traveled with two different Goldens, one at a time. Both about as calm and laid back as any dog could possibly be. We would take them for a walk, then back to the RV, and they both would go curl up in a dark corner of the bedroom and sleep until we returned later, as much as 2-3 hours, and still be there when we returned. Not all dogs do as well. We have been camped beside people who left their dogs barking the entire time they were gone. Bad for the dogs, and bad the neighbors. If unsure, a pet sitter would be the best option, if available.

RE: Camping World for Collision repair? General Auto body shop?

Wish you were in the DFW area. I could recommend a great repair place. Almost ripped the whole rear cap off my 5er. And this repair facility did a great job and did it fast. 3 weeks including time to work up estimate, get insurance approval, and complete the work, with July 4th holiday mixed in the middle.

RE: Not a good trip

Sad to hear about your pet. I've lost 3 Golden Retrievers to cancer and all of them were like family members. I know how you feel, I still get sad when I think of them. Just recently found out our 12 yr old Golden has advanced liver cancer. Preparing for the end now. Previous Golden lived to over 14 until her body and hips gave out.

RE: Antenna question on new 5th wheel

And the obvious question. Did you go into the TV menu, select AIR, and scan for channels?
