RE: Sea Foam. Now I'm a believer

All I know is that a little more than a year ago we used our RV for a trip. (Have not used it due to health problems) When we got home I had work done to the generator, put Sea Foam in the Gas Tank. Went a month ago and started the RV and the Generator. Sea Foam works!

RE: Need opinion on portable oxygen concentrator

I have an Everflow Concentrator at home. I would like to get a portable concentrator because I have COPD. I don't really like hauling the Oxygen tanks with me.

RE: Generator Use

For us, if it is so hot that we need to run the generator all night, we just find a campground.x2 X3 I would rather pay for a camp site with full hooks than maybe getting dead from exhaust fumes !

RE: wave 3 heater

The entire pad should be lit. The pads are not cheap, about $100 as I recall. I suggest you call thier tech support Monday. They will instruct you on how to troubleshoot. Wayne What Wayne said, Good Luck.

RE: The 300 foot rule -- do they mean what they say?

My personal policy is to use established legal sites only. No guilt that way. I have to agree with this statement!

RE: Portable air compressor

I have a Viair 450P Automatic Function 12v Portable Compressor, and I also have Stanley 115v 6gal. 150-Psi air compressor. and of course I can't find a picture of either. They both work great. and the both are clumsy to carry around.

RE: Alternator voltage on ISC engine

Charge air heater grid cycling on/off with a cold engine? THIS ^^^^^^ ISC is a Cummins Diesel Cummins uses 'grid heaters' vs 'glow plugs' Voltage WILL fluctuate from 14V to 12V when ambient air temps drop below 59*F They will continue to cycle on/off (up to 30 seconds) until intake manifold temp goes above 59*F---even with engine running Each grid heater pulls close to 95A...thats 2300W Just one of the reasons for dual batteries and high amp alternators I knew that the ISC was a Cummins Diesel, but not about the ambient temps, thank you for taking the time to post that. I have not noticed it in my Ram 2500 IL6 6.7L Cummins Turbo Diesel. Learn some thing new every day.

RE: Looking for a So Cal Thanksgiving uncrowned camp spot

My wife and I went to Joshua Tree National Park a couple of years ago over Thanksgiving Holiday. We spent a week there. Nice and quiet almost empty. Only it was very cold there.

RE: 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

You are very,very close on the GVW but I can tell you for sure that the TPMS on the Jeep will not work with that of the coach no matter what brand it is.. Roadmaster has some tow brackets for the Jeep that will pretty much be hidden. Blue OX probably has the same. Pick the one you get the best deal on. Both are reputable companies I have a friend that tows a Jeep Liberty with a 26Q and when he does he drains all but a gallon of gasoline out of the Jeep. We are going to be looking at a RV on the Ram 5500 Chassis. But will have to make due, with what we have right now. We have all sorts of equipment in the storage bin on the Jamboree 26Q. Thanks I will start looking. Was thinking of getting a Tow Bar and hook it to the Jamboree and tow that with my Ram 2500 CC/LB IL-6 Cummins Turbo Diesel (ha ha :h) That might be a little over kill. :S

2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee

On 30 SEP 16, we bought a 2016 Grand Cherokee.Overland High Altitude, (fancy name for black badging) We were going to get a Cherokee but had problems getting into and out of it. I am very comfortable sitting in the passenger seat. We also have a TPMS in the RV. Can we get the one on the Jeep to work with the one in the RV? This jeep does have the Quadra Trac II Transfer case. And according to the Owner's Manual it's towable four down. My question is which Tow Bar assembly is the easiest to hook up and or remove, Or which one is the best pro's and con's ? We are going to use this set up on our 2005 Fleetwood Jamboree 26Q Class C. I know it's cutting it close on the GVW Thank You

RE: Generator mounting for pick up

I see nothing wrong with your welding job. I can say for sure it's a lot better than what I would do. I never learned how to weld. Good job.

RE: Goal zero yeti 150 & cpap

You need to post what model Cpap Machine you have. My machine is a Respironics M Series BiPap. It runs on 12v. I use a 12v receptical by my bed in the RV to power my machine.

RE: Synthetic oil questions

My Ram 2500 IL-6 Cummins Turbo Diesel I use Rotella T-5 15/40 Synthetic Blend. In my 2005 Fleetwood 6.8 L V-10 I use Motorcraft Synthetic Blend. In my Old 1995 7.3L "460cid" V-8 I used Motorcraft 10/30 Synthetic Blend Oil. I change the oil and filter at about 7500 miles or 6 mo. which ever comes first. My 1995 Ford had over 200K on it when I traded it in on my Ram Truck. It leaked more oil than it burned "Marked it's Territory"
