RE: Best Truck Battery

I will recommend Autozone Duralast Gold Batteries. I know from experience that they will replace anywhere in the US. I bought an Autozone Durlast Gold in Ridgecrest Ca. I had problems with it in Yuma. They replaced it no questions asked in Yuma.AZ. The battery was still under the full replacement part of the warranty before they pro-rate the cost.

RE: Portable air tanks

I’ve had a Powertank for years. Very happy with it. I got the 15#. In retrospect the 10# would have been more than adequate. It’s nice knowing I have up to 250 psi with no power requirement. Tried to do a multi quote but good old internet wouldn't allow it. (my provider) RVGeeks also did a review about Powertank. I like the 15 LB unit.

RE: Portable air tanks

You're concerned about running out of air but not fuel because??? Get a Viair compressor which runs on 12V. I have one of these. Works great. I would recommend it. RVGeeks did a review about it.

RE: Surge Protector

In the year 2000 surge protectors were not at all common. Unless some one has added one you do not have one. If I were to buy a unit, it would be the top of the line Progressive Industries portable unit because of the lifetime warranty. I use more expensive technology that gives me much better protection while fixing the main issue which is low voltage at campgrounds. A 50 amp surge device can be used on a 30 amp service. X4 We have one. We stayed at a KOA in Pomona,CA. it saved our RV Electrical System. I sent it in to Progressive and had them go thru it no charge. I got a new one back from them. I have the portable one for our Class C

RE: Ridgecrest, CA

Sierra Trails is adequate -- very dusty. Not lovely. Easy on and off the highway. X2. If you belong to theElks they have a nice campground at their Log in Ridgecrest.

RE: Install New Charge Controller close to batteries

It seems like you are a bit confused. If you are replacing the converter (which it sounds like) it should go back in the same place the old one was or you are going to have a wiring nightmare. What he said x 2

RE: Install New Charge Controller close to batteries

Tommygun714 From your profile, I get the impression that your 5er. is a 2018 model. What is wrong with the charger that is in it? :h If you want a new charger controller I would say just remove the one that's there and replace it in the same location. :S Get what you want but I would say inho, put it back where it's located. Least amount of work and wiring. :W

RE: Adding more solar panels question?

how large an existing panel ? little thing on top of the a/c ? start from scratch you still the generator for large items, coffee maker, MW etc.. unless you go big on the battery bank and LARGE on the solar, very large and you will still use the generator occasionally, especially for the A/C I agree with Mr.Wizard get a book called the 12v side of life http://www.marxrv.com/12volt/12volt.htm http://www.marxrv.com/12volt/12volta.htm Also you will need more batteries I have a 2005 Jamboree 26Q. I have 6 Lifeline AGM 6v Batteries and 3 100W Solar Panels. Those books are a very interesting read.

RE: Borg Dually Valve Kit

Call these people. I believe they will know what you need. If they are too far from you ask them who they would recommend. I don't know if they are still in business I used them once and they sent a tire service truck to Auburn to repair a blown inside dual for me. Good Luck. I would if I were you find a Truck Tire Dealer in your area. Tehama Tire Service Inc. 525 Antelope Blvd. Red Bluff, Ca. 530 527 5272 I just did a google search and they are still in business.

RE: TR: 10 steps to get your friends hooked on TCing

Great post, Nolan. I agree with your 10 steps. Negativity - another family taking up a boondock site, it's starting to get crowded in some spots. Positive note - another family spending time together camping is a sure fire way to have the kids grow up to be wonderful parents. Positive definitely out weighs the negative. Yeah, think you've done a good job getting another family out there camping. Not to mention another great trip report. I could agree more with both of your posts. I do have to say though the most positive note is that a "Good Time" was or looks to have had by all! Great photo's and write up. If you don't mind me asking where and when were these photo's taken.

RE: Batteries and inverter

I have 2005 Fleetwood Jamboree The batteries went dead. I got new AGM Batteries in July of last year. When I first bought my Jamboree 26Q I replaced the 2 batteries under the step and added 4 more to the coach I also replaced the chassis battery, They were all Interstate U2200 6v batteries. And a Chassis battery that was was an Interstate. I bought my RV in 2006. I also added Solar Panels and a Xantrex 2000w inverter When I replaced the batteries they were all boiled dry. Interstate Chassis Battery for 2004 Ford E450 group 65 chassis battery. The inverter/charger is und the dining area seat. I don't know what brand your rv is . Also my RV is a Class-C no slide outs. I think I did pretty good I got 11 years out of them. Even though I really neglected my RV and the batteries. I believe the solar panels boiled my batteries dry.

RE: California registration of out of state RV

If you belong to AAA, use them to do your paperwork. Much easier than trying to get answers from the DMV It might be worth the AAA membership fee to get the paperwork done.
