RE: Ever been totally rained out?

That is alot of rain for sure. We once woke up to six inch standing water under our trailer and surrounding area due to a minor flood on the oregon coast at Devil's Lake state park. What memories. LOL

I charge my twin Costco group 27 deep cycles with a HONDA EU 1000 using the factory 8 amp charging cord. I would like to buy a faster higher amperage battery charger. I am considering a Sears Die Hard Platnum charger. Was ready to purchase then read a few negative reviews. With a three year warranty I may still buy it. Any other reliable choices?

RE: DVD for beginners

Experience comes with time. The DVD is a good idea. Manufacturer's should give this away with the rig for specific info. With a purchase that size I am surprised they do not. I got a DVD with my swimming pool. Conhgrats and have fun

RE: Oregon is booked. Now looking for boondocking

We book a full nine month's out. Even doing that you have to be on the computer or phone first thing in the morning.

RE: LED strip light install ?

I used speaker wire. Turned out really cool. Bought a 300 LED blue string light on Amazon for $12

RE: Cleaning Black water tank

I never never use anything but water in my black tank. I do have a Flush King sprinkler like thing I run when flushing. Keep it simple. I have been doing it this way for many many years. No odors, no worries.

RE: HONDA EU 1000?

My betteries are from Costco and not Trojan's. The charger is a Sears die hard and has charging rates of 2/10 & 50. Main selling point was three year warranty and sale price of $39.99. Know of any better options all considered? You folks rock thank you so much

HONDA EU 1000?

Love my trusty Honda. Have recently learned here that my six amp charger is only charging my twin deep cycles at 3 amps each. So am thinking of buying a 50 amp charger from Sears so as to charge each battery at 25 amps. Will my Honda handle this? Thsnks

RE: Do I need a battery charger?

We are guaranteed three full days watching a movie every night with our twin DEEP CYCLE group 27 batteries. Do you own a volt meter? This will answer your questions about battery status and charging. We also disconnected our Co2 detector as it is a small drain.

RE: RV'ers logic

I camp with a friend who needs to run his CPAP breathing machine so we can't camp without power. Still trying to understand why we can't run his machine without AC even through our inverter.

RE: had my fill of campgrounds

We actually had a drunk guy walk into the side of our HTT in the middle of the night. Scared my kids bad and he could have got shot. Why would anyone go to the expense of camping just to party their brains out? Anywqay I need to scout out some of the boondocking options. So I can camp anywhere not posted other wise? Really? Thanks guys

I truly apreciate all the advice given. Problem is some of you contradict each other so it leaves me a tad confused. One thing that does stand out is a larger charger is in order. My converter has never charged the batteries verified by volt meter. I could charge 8 amps direct from the HONDA EU 1000 Though sounds like more amps is faster.

had my fill of campgrounds

Last weekend at a USFS campground I was, again, awoke at 1 a.m. by loud drunk people who really have no thought of others and I have had my fill. I really don't understand why this is so common but it is. So can you educate me on where I am allowed to camp? I live in Portland Oregon and like the MT HOOD area. I can cry camp just fine. Not clear on where I can go. Thanks

I currently charge my twin group 27 deep cycles with a six amp manual charger via HONDA EU 1000. With the six amp charger hooked up am I charging both batteries at 6 amps or 3 amp each? I want a fast charge to minimize generator time. What amp charger would you recomend? Thanks guys

RE: Protectant for plastic roof vent doors

Replace with aluminum. Sadly we can spend 200K on an RV and get a cheaply engineered piece of plastic******regardless

RE: DW wants to learn to drive our 5er...

Let her drive. Be patient. My wife honestly is a better driver than I am and she once backed out of a long parking lot.

RE: Do I need a battery charger?

We run twin group 27 deep cycles and can dry camp for about three nights. After that the TV will no longer power up through the inverter. We use an external battery charger for a much faster charge than the converter. All powered via our trusty HONDA EU 1000 Do whatever it takes for a quick charge while camping out of courtesy to your neighbors

RE: My smoke dectector doesn't like bacon!

Same here. We mostly cook outside for other reasons. Everyone likes bacon
