RE: Awning Weatherguard?

I have covered storage but my RV still gets morning sun until about noon. To protect my awning and graphics I am installing these sunshades from Costco. When I have to replace my awnings in the future I'll buy the Alumaguards from Carefree. http://i.imgur.com/ZoOctTMl.jpg

RE: frig left on

Anyone ever plug it into a watt meter to see the duty cycle so they could estimate the cost to run full time?

RE: Pure Sine Inverter? Need 240 Volts or Verse Visa?

I used one of those while working in Africa for coffee maker and my blender and other American accessories I took there. Worked great as long as the appliance didn't wasn't picky about 50hz.

RE: Air Ride Seat in F350

The OP is clearly talking about an air ride SEAT. Why is almost everyone talking about suspensions? Did I miss something? I too am interested in prior experiences in seat upgrades. My Lariat seats are pretty good and your King Ranch are even better. If you find something for yours, it'll prolly fit mine too.

RE: Which 5th wheel hitch

I love my Pullrite superglide but it is heavy. I either use my front end loader or usually an engine hoist to remove it and install it. Even with the auto slider and a rounded nose trailer, I still get within 4 inches of hitting my cab in a sharp turn.

RE: What's do you store the ladders while in route

I hook my loft ladder on the trim of either the kitchen slide or the living room slide while traveling. The garage bed ladder rides either on top queen or the bottom couches. When they are all the way up, the ladder stays in place because I put some pillows around it. The patio steps has a dedicated place in the forward pass through storage. The handrail goes wherever it will fit in the garage. The patio is kind of useless as far as I am concerned. I'd only ever use it if I was backed up to the beach or the lake.

RE: Truck/trailer height question

Mine looked a little low in front and my bed clearance was a little over 4 inches. I have the Pullrite superglide with super rails. Pullrite makes a 3" lift kit for the superglide that I just installed. Now it looks just a tad high in front and my bed clearance is just over 7". Cost of lift kit was $143. I am installing 1" blocks and longer U bolts which will give me the extra clearance since I installed 1" taller tires and all will be well.

RE: Magnum CSW1012 vs Xantrex ProWatt SW1000

Xantrex is into sales, not service.

RE: Advise on Solar Mounts ....

I used standard residential mounting hardware that you would use on an asphalt shingle roof. Hasn't been a problem.

RE: Toy Haulers

The Raptor 398TS has a 14 foot garage which should be plenty. We love our Raptor.

RE: Inverter Issue

Take it back to where you bought it and ask them to give you a walk through again on refrigerator operation while on inverter. My guess is the refrigerator is not connected to the inverter. Before doing that you can do this: Disconnect from shore power, generator off and inverter on. Check all of your 120V outlets, including refrigerator to see which ones are active.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

For some stupid reason, on my Raptor, Keystone installed the main cabin light inside the cabinet where the master control center is located. You have to open the cabinet to turn on the main cabin lights. I installed a new switch on the wall facing the entrance door. It is the same wall all the other light switches are located. Before, when it was dark, you'd have to turn on the entrance light or bar light to be able to see to open the cabinet to turn on the main light. Dumb! Now, I just go up the steps, open the door and light switch it in the wall right on front of my face. Way cool!

RE: Samson tires anyone dealt with them

Aren't they chinese too? Goodyear G614 or Sailun S637 is the way to go I went with the sailuns and couldn't be happier. Yes they are made in china but they are great tires. Holding up far better than the Trailer Kings that came on it.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

I installed a 3" lift kit on my Pullrite superglide hitch. This increased my bed clearance from 4 to 7 inches and levelled my trailer.

Hi, When I planned on weighing the RV I deliberately filled fresh, gray and black tanks. Gas tank was full and so was the propane tank. Why would you do that? If I start the trip with full fresh tank and empty waste tanks, eventually I'll have full waste tanks and an empty fresh tank. NEVER will all of my tanks be full.

RE: What is a Solar Power Sine Wave Inverter

My Lowe's has them in Arizona. I picked up a 600 watt for $69. I use it for my TV, Sat Receiver and DVD player because they always reboot when switching from generator to main inverter. With this, these three devices are always on their own inverter. In the past, I have also used a computer UPS for this task. it is a PITA when the sat receiver spends 5 minutes rebooting.

RE: Thoughts on oil change intervals (time, not mileage)

You can have it analyzed at one year and the analysis will tell you if you need to change it.

RE: Which Screw Gun for Jacks?

The jacks should easily turn by hand so almost any drill should get them to the ground. Lifting the RV is another matter. These are stabilizer jacks and not designed for lifting but will lift some. When you use the handle that came with them and it gets too hard to crank, you have pretty much reached their limit.
