RE: Air Pressure for blowing out lines for winter

But there's plenty of room for the remaining moisture to expand. It doesn't need to be dry.

RE: Solar question

Thanks for the response. I looked for that setup but it is not $270! I'm glad that I can just add another array though. I'll look around. Must be in high demand/short supply on Amazon. I purchased on Amazon in mid August for $262 delivered. Here's a link to Renogy direct. https://www.renogy.com/renogy-100-watt-12-volt-monocrystalline-foldable-solar-suitcase/ It goes on sale occasionally and should be available on Amazon for similar again soon. It's a great setup w/ really good reviews. I'm happy w/ it.

RE: Tandem or single axle

I have both a single axle TT and a dual axle cargo trailer. There's a lot of good reasoning for a dual axle. The single axle is more sensitive to weight placement. My advice is to buy the trailer right for your usage and weight is a consideration pulling w/ either a Tacoma or Colorado. I'd find the lightest trailer to suit my needs whether it's a dual or singe axle.

RE: Dometic refrigerator at higher altitudes

Smaller Dometic version. It has the Danfoss compressor. Which I recommend you look for in specs if you decide to go this route. Highly efficient. Still gonna use more battery than propane. http://www.westmarine.com/buy/dometic--coolmatic-cr-compressor-refrigerators--P015_450_001_509

RE: Dometic refrigerator at higher altitudes

NOT cheap but a two way compressor type fridge. The 12 volt is much more efficient than the 12 volt 3 way evaporation type, which you have now. Just a sample. They come in many sizes and styles. I have an ARB cooler style. They work way better and quicker than the evaporation type you currently have that is not working over 5000 ft. http://www.westmarine.com/buy/norcold--de-0061-ac-dc-refrigerator-freezer-right-hinge--5388699?cm_mmc=PS-_-Google-_-Shopping_PLAs-_-5388699&adpos=1o4&creative=65739116644&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&gclid=CjwKEAjwmf6-BRDi9fSN7Ijt1wUSJAASawcjzRe885yGa3jDvMHRowqJcxNljFQxIk1KlMqEEfKWjRoCC-Hw_wcB

RE: Which truck would be better for my TT

Smaller trailer.

RE: Considering what to buy

The Jayco White Hawk 23 in what we are looking at as well. Would that be the White Hawk 23MRB? The one that weighs over 5,000# empty and has a GVWR of 6,500#? Way too much trailer for you. Even empty it is over your rating and how many times do you plan to tow it empty? Only time you tow it empty will be the day you take it off the lot. Realistically when loaded with gear, food, and water it will probably be very close to 6,500#. You need to be looking at trailers with a empty weight of 3,000 to 3,500 maximum. Also don't forget that gear and passengers loaded in the tow vehicle have to be subtracted from the tow rating. Yep. Smaller trailer or BIGGER truck.

RE: Shower/Toilet tent / Portable Shower / Portable Ptty

I have and use this one. It's decent. I also use their privacy tent. It's an instant up type. Both are easy to use and work well. I like to keep a heater Buddy in there for cold mornings. There's a slot in the top of the privacy tent to slip a shower head or similar through. You don't want a floor. You do want a wooden grate to stand on for showering.. Or something similar. For hot water I'd spend the money on the Zodi system. http://www.cleanwaste.com http://www.cleanwaste.com/static/images/large_toilet-white.jpg http://www.cleanwaste.com/static/images/large_totalsystem.gif http://zodi.com/uploads/images/medium/hot-tap-with-case.jpg

RE: How to set up 8x8 dome tent video

I had enough with setting up tents and bought an Coleman instant tent from Costco for $80. Up in about a minute. Down in about a minute. Takes longer to get it back into it's storage bag. Liked it enough to also get an instant screen tent for bugs.

RE: Tarp or a footprint?

Costco sells 'carpet' in a 6x9 size for about $15 in a few different colors. Easy to roll or fold for storage and thick enough for under a tent. Used the last few seasons under a tent and under the TT awning. http://thecouponproject.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/DSCN8062-Medium-e1456261004332-768x1024.jpg

RE: Tent Stake Hack

Used this 'hack' for the last couple of seasons. They're 10 for $10 at Wally World. They hold up decent enough. I use a milk crate(upside down) to put them in when not using them. Keeps them organized and easy to move around and put under the Sun for charging.

RE: Small solar set up for TT.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HR8YNK6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Just ordered this. I wanted to be able to park in the shade while my panels were in the Sun. I may add a panel or two to the roof if this works out. My storage is indoors so there's no benefit to a roof mount in that instance. If you like it but want roof mounted you could always sell this and get their roof mount system.

RE: An old newbie.

Obligatory new trailer pics. Bought it two weeks ago today and have 8 nights in already. :D http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii154/ColoTJ/IMG_4314_zpsonlut7ox.jpg http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii154/ColoTJ/IMG_4313_zpstfioguwp.jpg http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii154/ColoTJ/IMG_4299_zps5bnqrc89.jpg

An old newbie.

I'm back after a few years of being gone. I originally had a 21 ft. Nomad/Skyline Trailrider toyhauler. Interests changed and life got busy and it sat in storage for a few years and eventually sold it(gave it away ;) ). Now I'm back. In a 12' Livin' Lite Camplite 13QBB and loving it. So... 1. Hi everybody. Nice to be back. 2. This used TT is in great shape and everything works as it should, except... The blade for the toilet won't completely close. It's a porcelain style with a foot lever. The blade goes back but will not completely insert back into it's slot. I've tried releasing it from it's full open position in hopes that speed and momentum would allow it to seat but it usually won't go fully back in. It will hold water when I do this but I inevitably put a finger on it and push it into place. I've tried some silicon spray lubricant that sort of helped for a little while. Any suggestions to fix this annoying issue? 3. Tows great w/o WD or sway control but a bit bouncy at times. No need to address it but wouldn't mind hearing any suggestions to rectify it. I'm currently running Firestone airbags w/ about 65psi when towing. Not sure of tongue weight but It's a super light trailer to begin with, so not too much.
