RE: What kind of battery's

You did not say what voltage of the 2 lead Acid batteries that are currently in the travel trailer. So that would lead us to believe that he has 12v batteries. If he wants to change the batteries, if it were my rig to 6v deep cycle AGM batteries. In my RV I have 6 6v Lifeline AGM type deep cycle batteries. I also have an Excide 12v AGM Battery, as the chassis battery. I also have 3 100w Solar Panels and a 2000w Xantrex inverter. Good luck.

RE: Hitch pin or hitch lock?

I have a Trimax locking pin on my rig. Mine is the stainless steel 3 1/2 inch long SXT5 that fits the newer trucks 2.5 inch receivers. I have had mine for about 7 years and it works perfectly. No need for a "hairpin". Barney I do not tow a trailer with my RV I tow a Jeep Grand Cherokee 4 down. I use the Trimax Locks all keyed alike. Great locks.

RE: Cost for a new carb

I have a brand new Onan 5500 generator and my fifth wheel toy hauler. It came with 30 gallons of regular gas in one of the 30 gallon tanks. Of course I did not run it as i was suppose to and i'm sure there is a bunch of crude clogging it up so I brought it to our local RV repair shop. 630 dollars to change the carb. Isn't there a carb kit they can use Or am i being taken to the cleaners? I had the Onan Generator serviced in my RV and did the same as you and it cost me $498.00 to get it repaired Onan Raised the price for the Carborators. Thanks to Carb. (California Air Resources Board) They must be compliant.

RE: Fly Fishing and RV Parks - Where in the Southwest?

Try looking around Bridgeport, CA. There is a couple of campgrounds that we have stayed at several years ago.

RE: Alaska Trip 2017' - Larson's Epic Adventure TR - (Part 1)

Mark I wish that I would have found Part 1 of this trip report first. Excellent report and it's well worth the search I did in Rv.net I really enjoyed the read and I look forward to Part 3 of your trip report. Excellent photo's Maybe in the next few weeks I will have another TR to read. Your TR is very well written and the photo's are excellent to superlative. From your photo's I see that you aren't towing your Jeep TJ ? Is it not set up as a toad? Just wondered. Again excellent photos and great TR. Thanks for taking the time to post for the enjoyment of fellow RVNet readers.

RE: What makes some cell phones worth ten times others?

I use Net10 for my cell phone service. I used to use Verizon. I carried my Father in Laws phone on our account also. we had gotten new cell phones (nothing special just before he passed away) We wanted to cancel the service to his telephone. They would not let us do that. So for 13 months to the end of the contract we paid for service, for his telephone. When Our contract was up we switched to Net10 part of Tracfone Wireless. and we will not look back. I have bought several new cell phones and they are always new phones. We can get refurbished but we choose the new ones. We usually or I should say the last two we bought were set to work on the Verizon Cell phone towers.

RE: Do Not Disturb While Driving mobile feature coming

My Galaxie Sky Phone has the "Do Not Disturb" feature on it. Also, my Ram Truck has it in the U-Connect cellphone feature. My DW and I also own a Jeep Grand Cherokee it also has UConnect 8.4 which also has the Do Not Disturb feature. I just turn the cell phone off.

RE: Finding gas stops - any tricks?

Gas Buddy, use it all the time, shows prices and shows map of where they are. If you have a newer cellphone, if it's an Android OS or an Apple os you can download Gas Buddy. Works great.

RE: Do you use TV hookups at the parks you stay at?

Most of the time we will stay in BLM or NPS or NFS Campgrounds. When we stay in RV Parks we usually stay in ones that we have stayed at before, or Elks lodges or Moose Lodges. They usually have cable hook ups, that are included.

Removing Dinette Table from Fleetwood 26Q Jamboree/Tioga RV

I have seen this subject before, but can't find it. We want to remove the step that the dinette is on in our 2005 Fleetwood Jamboree 26Q. Has anyone posted photos of what was done Before and After? I am wondering if there is plumbing or electrical under the step? Thanks in advance.

RE: Best cell service providers, (areas covered)

I have two Samsung smartphone. I also have a HP Lap Top. I pay $50.00 for one of our phone and get billed $45.00 for our second line. Un-limited data on both phone. We don't have a hotspot, but I am thinking about getting one so we can have our lap top with us. We have always had cellphone from Net 10. Which is I believe part of Tracfone. I am looking to purchase a Mobile device but am not having any luck.

RE: Watch out ---------

If he wasn't awake before he hit I bet that he had a very "Rude Awakening". I seem to remember when I lived in San Leandro they had Truck and oversize lanes on all of the bridges in the bay area ?

RE: Replace RV Body?

The last two States in the US to require a Title for an automobile were RI and MA. I bought a 1970 used Olds in 1974-1975. It had no title. Tried to Title/Register it in NJ as I was entitled to do being I was on Active Duty with the US Navy. What a nightmare. You forgot Taxifornia aka California. Many years ago, my Father in Law bought a used car from a Towing Company, it had a title that was Salvage. He tried to get a clean Title in Arizona and they issued him a salvage title. Boy did the air turn blue as mad as he was. Real nightmare.

RE: Installing a Titan 65 Gallon Fuel Tank - long, but with pics

Boatycall Excellent looking job there. That same Ford Stealership in Lakewood told me that to recalibrate the miles-to-empty display, $129.... So $400 to replace a $0.10 clip, and $129 to recalibrate my display.... I told them they're on crack, I'll find someplace else. Maybe they need customer service lessons from Titan and TorkLift... What you said above Is one of the reasons I bought a Ram 2500 Laramie CC/LB IL-6, 6.7L CTD, instead of a Ford F250 Lariat Power Stroke basically the main reason. I went to 6 different Ford Dealerships and got 6 different prices (several thousand dollar apart, not several hundred apart) like I got at the 5 Ram Dealerships I went to. I have always owned Fords, will never go back.
