RE: Generator noise under bed

Our generator, air conditioner/heat pumps, and furnace are under the bedroom. Will never have another with the AC/HP under there. The furnace is not real bad and, as we only stay in campgrounds, can't run the generator during sleeping time anyway. That being said, to your original question, the best way to deal with the noise is with an acoustic barrier, not an absorber. Acoustic barriers are based on mass weight, in the past being lead sheet, now usually loaded vinyl or silicones. Problem is that to have much effect you will need to add considerable weight. I'm reasonably sure my AC noise is more from vibration of the unit and surrounding panels, and I'm trying to find things underneath that my add to the problem, you may want to investigate things like worn mounts, loose covers, etc. to see if that helps.

RE: How do I find my water pump?

I'd love to find a pump quiet enough to not know exactly where it is. Mine is almost louder than the AC.

RE: Saftey Chains on Tow Dolly

Traveylin: If I understand you correct, No the brakes on the tow dolly will not be applied and neither will the brakes on the vehicle. Many tow dollies have surge style brakes. Some do have electric brakes. Some electric brake setups do have a break away function if dolly comes loose. Not many though. Any dolly with electric brakes can be upgraded to a break away configuration with a $10 switch and a battery. I use a pigtail on the toad's battery so it cost me less than $10.

RE: Power generator problems

Plenty of fuel in the tank? Generator feed line can only pick up down to 1/4 tank.

RE: Manslaughter charges for improper towing equipment.

And the throwable for a single occupant of a boat is to rescue someone from another boat you may find in the water. not my responsibility. it is the responsibility of a person in HIS boat. bumpy It is totally your responsibility! If you see another boater in distress with risk to life or property you have a responsibility (a legal one) to render aid. Don't disagree but, if true, why (at least in Florida), is a throwable not required if your boat is under 16 feet?

RE: Gas Tank External Drain

Do you have a generator?? If so just put a "T" after the fuel pump to the generator add a shut off valve to the "T" and using the generator fuel pump, pump out what you need in to gas can. That's what I do except instead if a tee i just disconnect the fuel hose at the carb. Can only drain down to 1/4 asthat's the level of the generator line in the tank but allows a fill up to mix in fresh fuel.

RE: Gas Tank External Drain

If you're concerned about the valve catching on anything, you can weld a cage around the valve. A lock is even possible to keep out the hillbillies. Oops, wrong reference post --sorry

RE: Lazy Days Tampa--Rigs Open

While I said "a couple of months ago" I'll plead old fart memory. Looked it up and it was actually late March. May have been due to the display out front tying up personnel and not having anyone to watch the lots.

RE: Lazy Days Tampa--Rigs Open

I was in Lakeland a couple of months ago and decided to drive over to Lazy Days to look around. When I bought my coach there in 2011, all the units were open, both new and used, and the sales people rode around as described above seeing if you needed help. This trip was quite different, most units were locked and I didn't see a sales person anywhere. They had a few units set up out front in a "mini show" setting with a few sales people roaming around but I got the feeling they were assigned to be there and were not real thrilled about it. Not a big deal but they have also changed the "free lunch" deal for people with customer cards. After going thru the line, I was told, "we don't do that anymore."

RE: need help replacing tires: 295/80R 22.5

My short experience with Toyo has not been good. My 2014 Nissan Pathfinder came with them, cut one on road trash, no dealer within 100 miles. The one guy they listed on their web site, was a mechanic shop with a dirt parking lot and he didn't stock any tires. Finally got Discount Tire to order one (they don't sell them). Drove on the pretend spare for two days. Point is, where can you get a replacement on the road?

RE: Shocks

Having my new heavy duty Bilstein's I bought on line. free shipping, installed Monday, $50 a shock. Also having several other preventive maintenance jobs done: New serpentine belt, fuel filter, engine and radiator flushed,replace thermostat, replace any cooling hoses as needed, and clean mass airflow sensor. Yes it will cost some dollars, about $1400, all things I use to be able to do. If you want to RV it's like owning a "boat", "Break out another thousand." LOL Where did you get the shocks? Sounds like a good price.

RE: Towing Nissan?

Hi to all, We have a 30 ft Jayco Greyhawk. Does anyone know if Nissan has a car that can be flat towed? Thanks. Most Nissan's with automatic Trans are CVT (gearless) type. No pumps are manufactured for them. My murano is FWD and I tow it on a dolly. My Pathfinder is AWD and cannot be towed other than fully on a trailer. The Frontier that I traded for the Pathfinder could only be towed with a driveshaft disconnect even though it had a regular auto Trans. Standard Trans (if you can find one) would work fine.
