RE: Onan 5500 Fuel Filter removal

I used the adapter shown above. Note that when Onan went to just one filter and added the adapter they went to a new filer. Fuel filter new style = #149-2341-01

RE: Fresh water tank getting fresh water?

If you are in the city fill mode the pump may run and pump water from the fresh water tank. If the pump is on and the shore water pressure is lower than the water pump cut-in pressure it will run and take water from the tank. At one RV park that we spent all or part of the winter in for several years, the water pressure varied from 20 psi or so up to about 35 psi depending on whether the well pump had just pumped the well pressure tank up and the number of users. When we took a shower we always turned the pump on so we had a decent pressure when the shore pressure dropped.

RE: Tire size

Changing the rolling radius of the tires and tire weight that much can affect a number of things including the suspension, speedo, engine control computer settings and shift points on the transmission.

RE: leveling during overnight stops

If the rear end of your rig is going to be raised very much when you level, it is best to have the toad in neutral. As you raise the rear end it pulls the toad forward so the wheels need to be able to roll some.

RE: Potable Water Etiquette

As camp hosts at an Idaho state park it was part of our job to tell folks they couldn't leave a hose connected. For some reason the park rules did not allow Ys to be used.

RE: Permanent Site - 12v Efficiency

I bought a Progressive Dynamics PD9245 45 amp three stage converter/charger/float charger with the charge Wizard. It goes into float mode that maintains the batteries without causing outgassing or damage. It is also a decent charger with a bulk mode at 14.5 volts dropping to 13.5 v and then 13.2 v. One unit makes things simpler than carrying extra stuff. Higher current models are available.

Some of them sound an alarm when the battery voltage goes low.

RE: Air conditioner freezing up question

It's counter intuitive but the tech was right.

RE: 5th WheelTrade in value

It seems to run about 70% of average retail. You might see if your local library has a copy of the commercial NADA guide. I was told but have not verified that that guide has the wholesale/trade value listed.

RE: Full time/South Dakota insurance question.

United Health Care (AARP) Medicare supplemental policies are sold in SD and are good all over the US. That is what we used until we stopped full timing about three years ago.

RE: Mail Services

Although we are not going to rv "full" time we are going to be gone for at least 3 months. The only option I think we have is a mail servie to have mail forwarded to as USPS will not hold for longer than 30 in which I cant see my mail anyway. They will forward my mail for at least 3 months so I need a mail service. We used on in Florida last time which was great, but thought getting one in the same half of the country would get mail forwarded faster. SO, any recommendations for mail services out west? Home base in Colorado. Make sure you set up TEMPORARY forwarding - not a change of address. They will forward for six months and you can extend that another six months. From the USPS web site: "Regular Forward Mail If your move is temporary, you can use this service for as short as 15 days or as long as 1 year. After the first 6 months, you can extend for another 6 months. Direct your mail to a new address with a few clicks and a $1.05 charge to your credit card (the charge verifies your identity)."
