RE: Buying new truck, hitch question

Note that the frame system that attaches to the pucks raises your 5'er hitch by almost 2.5". This may or may not be critical, depending on your bed-height and the 5'er design height.

RE: Solar question

All but the very simple 12v output panels do. My 300W of panels output at 34.4v, so that needs to be converted to 13V+/- by the controller.

RE: Western North Carolina to New York(Long Island)

At least an overnight or two at Assateague, MD! If you are self-sufficient, the National Park usually has more availability, but it's all "dry" camping, with no elec. The Maryland State Park has some sites with electric, but no water or sewage. Even with no services, they are beautiful beach parks, with wild ponies wandering through your campsite on a fairly regular basis....

RE: Sewer Hookup @ Home?

If you are on municipal sewers, the "impact" of a 50-gallon flush will be negligible. Not so on an individual septic system. A septic system will take the flows from a macerator, as its really no more than the input flow from a washing machine...

RE: help from the electrical wizards

Did your 12v charging system kick into "boost" or somehow otherwise increase output, thus increasing draw?

RE: Wireless tire pressur sensors?

Just installed "most of" my new TST 507 TPMS system tonight.... Two more tires to do (the two trailer spares), but don't feel like getting soaked doing it. Seems to work really well, though!

RE: Use home sewer cleanout as dump station?

Do it with a macerator pump, then it will just look like a garden hose going in, and will draw little notice from anyone....

RE: Tire Pressure Monitoring System

I've got an 8 year old Pressure Pro system, and it's time to replace the batteries (at $30 each!). Given the improvements in technology over the last 8 years, and TST now having a user replaceable batter, PLUS flow through tire filling, I may have to reevaluate replacing my old sensors vs updating my system....

RE: Vent Covers?

I originally installed MaxAir II's on my vents, bit the two that have fans in them on my trailer have FanTastic fans. The MaxAir covers wouldn't open far enough for the FanTastic fans to operate, as they have a plunger switch on hem to ensue that the vent is open when the fan is running. I changed out the two with the fans for the FanTastic covers, As for which is "better", I FAR PREFER the mounting method of the FanTastic! If I had realized this at first, I NEVER would have bought the MaxAir's.....

Wife had her knee replaced in late April, and she is in and out of our 5er regularly now.

RE: Looking at my first diesel

There's lots of brand loyalty on this board and many strong opinions surrounding the brand/year you are asking about. . Now THERE is the understatement of the month!!! As a proud RAM/Cummins owner, I'd tell you that Ford found the only problem with that vehicle, and that they even drew an oval around it, and highlighted it in blue for you! ;) Seriously, you are on the right research path, and seem to be getting good info. Find out what the vehicle was used for. There are list of good deals on high mileage diesels that are only high mileage because they were run up and down the interstates. There are also some "good deals" on low mileage diesels, but the owner is getting rid of it because he got 5 or 6 good years of snow plowing out of it...... See the difference? What it was used for in its previous life would be an important decider for me.... ON EDIT: I just realized that the 172,000 is KM, and not miles! That pup is barely broken in! Have they used a synthetic oil? Some places will get you an oil sample analysis that may give you any signs of potential problems, but at 100,000 miles, a diesel is still "new". Even if it IS a Ford.... ::B

RE: Will solar panel keep batteries charged while running fridge

If you are running the fridge on LP, then a 55w panel and decent sun should be more than enough to keep the control circuitry running.... Now, of you were trying to run on electric, you would need a MUCH larger system, and a big battery bank to get you through the night....

RE: Moving to New York from PA

Expensive, but really not that difficult! Here's a tip, though..... Many County Clerk's offices are satellite NYS DMV Offices. Not sure whe you are moving to, but I've found overall that the Conty Clerk's DMV Offices are MUCH more friendly and efficient than the local State DMV Office. (And I'm sorry to say that I'm a state employee telling you this..")

RE: problem with some sections of the forum

It's doing it on RV.net. I switched to Good Sam club link, and no problems.

RE: Water Pump confusion - Can somebody clarify?

Your pump only pulls from the tank. The line between the pump and the city connection is empty (there is a back flow protector that prevents the city water from back pressuring the pump, and into the tank. If you throw about a gallon of water into the tank, it should be enough to fill the pump and that line, then once filled, the pump should shut off. Not a bad way to test your pump,

Novel use of an old RV

Saw this video on a woodworking forum that I'm on, and thought that fellow RV'ers might enjoy seeing a great use of an old RV. Enjoy!

RE: Sunset on Seneca Campground

Never camped there. We have camped several times at Sampson State Park of the east side of the lake. Don't know that I would "vacation" there, but it was a great base-camp for touring the wineries, the NA$CAR race at The Glen, and other site-seeing opportunities. Basic electrical hook-up's, no sewer at sites, but well designed dump station. Water spigots throughout CG, usually no more than a few hose-lengths away. CG bath & shower facilities well maintained.
