RE: Onan BFA Oil - Why not 20W-50?

I am a believer in 5W-40 Rotella syn for this application. Great specs and available everywhere. Since the widespread availability of synthetics it's been my practice to go with a multigrade for air cooled engines.

RE: Spare Parts To Carry

Where do you camp that FedEx can't get to you? I used to carry spare bulbs, but now they're all LED. I do have a spare tire. I suppose the toad and bike can count as two spare vehicles. :-)

RE: Portable gas can rant, and a really good solution

Blame your fellow consumers, retailers sell what sells aka low price. I have several of the no spills, they do cost more. And worth it.

RE: AC (alt current) Waveforms and THD for gens and inverter

Good info, thanks for sharing. Worst I ever saw were Generac stationary gensets for consumer home back-up power. Like those found at Home Depot.

RE: AC Experts: How to Spoof or Disable Thermostat?

Just be prepared. It may run until you shut it off or it may run until it ices up and self destructs.

RE: Question....about retirement...

If you work for a sizeable company, sic the HR dept on him for that comment. Workplace hostility, age discrimination etc. You have nothing to lose and large employers are petrified of EEOC cases. If nothing else it will be a favor to his future subordinates.

RE: Experienced TTers, can you spare a little buying advice...?

Have you looked at Northwood mfg, aka Nash and Arctic Fox? Better built and insulated than most. We had a Surveyor around 2008 and it was a decent unit, however since I understand they have cheapened them e.g. ours had torsion axles like Airstream, but now they have leaf springs.

RE: Onan 5500 generator

Did you check for codes? Ours will sometimes stop when we hit a rough spot on the road. Don't know why yet, code just says engine stopped without being commanded to. Fuel nor oil low.

RE: Experienced TTers, can you spare a little buying advice...?

Are you intending the dogs as cargo in the trailer?

RE: This sums it up for the status of the RV industry now

All you hear on here are the moans of the dissatisfied. We're full-time in a two year plus old rig. Purchased new. Never been back to the dealer. It's well known dissatisfied people communicate about it much more than satisfied people do.

RE: Toad overweight?

2003 Ford towing guide Says 26k GCWR and 8k towing for your chassis.

RE: Toad overweight?

You will need a 10k hitch to replace the 5k you (likely) have now. And someone with expertise like a welding shop that builds commercial truck bodies to assess the frame extensions at the rear of your MH and reinforce them if necessary. You probably have a short wheelbase and a heavy toad may challenge the steering and decrease directional stability. I tow full size truck with motorcycle in the bed.

RE: Folding tables, port. grills, port. canopies-What do u take?

I can only answer on the grill, we like the small Weber rectangular grills. Wal-Mart has them. I carry both gas and charcoal types. Folds up small and easy to store. Too small if you cook for a crowd, though.

RE: RVI2 or Blue Ox Patriot

I use the RVI and had a Wrangler last year. Don't recall any fitment problem. I like the ability to monitor and adjust from the remote in the motor home. The ratchet could be set too far out if a user was careless. Follow directions and no problems. I tow an F150 now which has a sloped floor in front of the seat, no good ledge for the brake to press against. Solved with a fitted wood block that acts as a spacer between the seat legs and brake.

RE: Visitors should pee outside!

I have seen too many leaks myself over the years and read numerous accounts like yours, which is why we always run with onboard (pumped) water and never leave the pump on when we're out of the unit. If there's a valve left open it's immediately noticeable. The smallest of leaks will trigger intermittent pumping and you know you have a problem. We only hook up the hose long enough to fill the tank.

Cricket is what I've changed to. GSM coverage throughout Mexico, US, and Canada with no roaming charges. I'm posting this from the Yukon using my cell as a hotspot.
