RE: Had to give up rving

Relish the memories of your experiences rather than dwell on what you have lost. And who knows. One day you may find a way to get back in to it at some level. Good luck.

RE: black soot from forming outside pilot light vent?

For a water heater that old a picture would definitely help for meaningful comments. Go to this picture posting tutorial for help.

RE: TPMS for TT?

TST 507 is a very popular TPMS and will handle most trailers (5ers and TTs) with no problem. And TST has a repeater for those that do need extra signal. Mine works fine on my 35' 5er.....most of the time. On rare occasion I may loose communication for a short time. So I did buy a repeater for more reliable signal.

RE: Teflon Tape or Plumbers Putty?

I agree it is a sealer. Otherwise it would not be allowed for use with propane.

RE: Plumbing Vent Caps On Roof --- All Sun Broken & Ruined

Do you have attic vents? Mushroom shaped caps and about twice the diameter of the plumbing vents? I replaced those this year as the old ones were chalky and starting to deteriorate.

RE: Can anyone give the compass heading for Dish?

Yeah, it all depends on your location at the time. Download a sat locator app for your phone. I use the Dishformyrv app.

RE: Hope this isn't anyone from the forum

Interesting. I can't see a thing in that picture that would lead to a single reasonable "educated" guess, much less a conclusion, on the cause. :h

RE: Slumgullion Pass, Colorado

Have not towed over it but have driven it. The north side is definitely the steeper and more winding side. You should have no problem towing up the south side. Then just let the tow/haul engine braking ease you down the north side. There are at least a couple switchbacks you want to go very slow around going down.

RE: Gm Trucks

You have 371,000 miles on on a 13 yr old truck ! am I missing something? Have there been ongoing problems from the start? I apologize that wasn't helpful from me at all His '98 K1500 has the 371,000 miles, not the '03 2500. You can get a bad one in any brand. Even though I am very much a Ford fan, I would not completely give up on GM just because of that one. Although I will never own another GM product due to the way they have treated us on some 3500 Express vans for our small business.

RE: Travel Trailer Brake light wiring

I have used those T Tap connectors before and they have always worked well. For moisture protection I use shrink tubing or liquid tape.

RE: Towmax PowerKing blow out pics

Is Jayco Eagle a 5er? Something over 2,000 lbs would be supported by the truck. If TT, then probably something in the range of 1,000 lbs supported by truck. Oops. Missed the last sentence. Yes, the weight on the truck reduces the amount of weight on the TT tires.

RE: Satellite tv

Are you a full timer, long timer, or sometimer? If you only intend to use it on occasional trips, the Dishformyrv pay as you go plan would be good. You only have to pay for the months you use it. And don't pay for the other months. Basic plan I believe is about $50/mo, and up depending on how many channels you want to pay for. If you have Dish at home, just add the RV to the home account for $7/mo. You would need to buy an additional receiver for the RV. Some people take a receiver ftom home when they travel, but l prefer to have one I can just leave in the RV. We have had Dish both at home and in the RV for many years and very happy with it. I used a tripod mounted antenna for a couple years, but never got very good at aiming it. Bought a Tailgater and let it find the sats automatically. With Dish, when traveling outside your home area you can call (or on line chat), tell them your current location, tell them you want to change your service address (not billing address), and in a few minutes you will have major network stations from the nearest local city.

RE: Opinions: FW to gooseneck adapters?

Many people use them, prefer them to a standard 5th hitch, and have no problems. But as mentioned, make sure it will not void your warranty if you have a new trailer. No doubt the stresses on the frame are different. Lippert apparently does approve using the Goosebox adapter. But it has an air bag and shock absorber built in.

RE: Phone camping app

RVParkReviews now has an app also. Works even better than their web site. IMHO. Also RVParky.

RE: RV Magazines

I take Trailer Life, have for a number of years, and find it ok. But is starting to get old as it all seems to be a repeated variation of older issues. And some of the tech info/advice seems questionable, at least to me.

RE: 12 volt not working...help

Did you pull the fuses and check them? Or use a meter to verify +12v at the load side of each fuse? Or just look for a red LED indicating a blown fuse. The red LED will not illuminate unless there is a load connected to that fuse. Plug the compressor back into that line and see if an LED illuminates. If so, that fuse is blown.

RE: Truck bed cover....

I have s Pace Edwards Full Metal Jacket roll cover covering my Reese Elite hitch. Locks every 6". No problem there. Some people have had a problem with the lower rear corners of their pin box hitting the rails on tight turns. Some have cut off the lower rear corners of their pin box at about a 45 degree angle to solve that problem. Maybe one of them will pop in with a picture of their modification.

RE: Food & Traveling

I turn on my fridge on electric a day or two before leaving on a trip so that it can cool completely and thoroughly. I put it in auto so that it switches to propane while on the road. And it never gets turned off until we return home.

RE: App for Phone

I access the forum more often on my iPhone than on my computer. No app needed. Just use Safari.
