RE: Awning Replacement

I replaced one on my sisters RV. Two people and two ladders. Like stated, check out the videos.

RE: Garmin rear camera

I just returned the Garmin Nuvi 2798LMT with the BC20 camera. I liked the GPS, but the camera was just too grainy and dark to be useful. Too much money for something that does not work as good as it should.

RE: wiring fault

In your experience what has been the problem when the TBC flashes Trailer wiring fault or trailer disconnect? When mine did it, the terminals had built up oxidation. I got this: http://i5.walmartimages.com/dfw/dce07b8c-6686/k2-_811f9d30-d18d-401b-9c05-016bbb38dca7.v1.jpg

RE: Rotate landing gear leg inserts

I helped a buddy put JTs on his 5ver and his were rotated 90 degrees from what mine were. We simply put the "saddle" bracket on the front cross pieces instead of the back. worked good.

Best route to Eagle Nest, NM from El Paso, TX

I have traveled both I-25 and Highway 54, but my question is more toward the last part of the trip hauling a fifth wheel through the twistiness. I don't mind some curves as long as the road is wide enough and in good condition. Hwy 54 north then use 434 and 64 seems to be the best route. Anyone with experience on this route? Thanks

RE: Boondocking - power transfer switch (DC to AC ) quit working

Yes, pop the cover off the transfer switch, make sure there is AC power coming in from the generator, then check the output. If nothing, could be a bad coil on the relay.

RE: Yea retired !! First full timer needs help!!

Sounds exactly what mine was doing. I think its your regulator too. Especially since it's a '99 model in Arizona. The arid climate can cause the rubber diaphragm to dryout, crack or get stiff.

RE: Real 5th Wheel lengths? Need 31'

Our Columbus 295RL is right at 29 1/2 feet from front closet to rear wall. Exterior front nose to rear bumper is 35' 7"

RE: Palomino Colunbus 385BH

I have the Columbus 295RL and I really like it. I too chose it for the floor plan and the amount of features per $. The insulation is probably a factor in heating and noise, but the 2015 models supposedly are being built with thicker walls. If you are seriously thinking of getting a Columbus you should check out https://www.facebook.com/groups/ColumbusRVGroup LOTS of knowledgeable and experience there.

RE: Generator not responding

When you said you checked the batteries, what voltage did you get? If you could check while attempting to crank also to see what you get.

RE: 50 amp fiver - 30 amp service

I may be mistaking, but according to the NEC any two circuits using the same neutral the circuit breakers must be tied together. This is so if one trips all power is removed from the circuit. I believe our rv's are a branch circuit from the pedestal/main panel. Just because they make them for sale does not make it the right way to do it. JMHO. No. For single split phase 240V (120 across each line to neutral) the neutral can be shared and it can feed two separate circuits. If the 2 individual 120v lines - (240v & neutral) feed a single appliance such as an electric range, the CBs must be tied together. This does not apply anyway, as there are no 240v appliances in RVs.

RE: 50 amp fiver - 30 amp service

If you do a search, there are LOTS of places you can purchase this adapter. I have seen approval on a lot worse designs (such as press on wire connectors). The concept of the Camco Power Maximizer is good and I don't see a problem with it. As long as the electrical wiring to and at the pedestal is to code, it shouldn't be an issue. As stated before, the problem is when someone tries to turn on too many items at once and they continually go out and reset the circuit breaker. That can happen no matter what plug and/or adapters for whatever size RV it is.

RE: 50 amp fiver - 30 amp service

The voltage - 120 or 240 doesn't matter. Current is what we are concerned with. My TT had the same "power hungry" items as my fiver: AC, microwave, electric water heater, Refrigerator, power converter.

RE: 50 amp fiver - 30 amp service

You may want to read this. It's one of those "just because you can, don't mean you should http://rvservices.koa.com/rvinformation/rvmaintenance/rv-electrical-101.asp that article meandered off into the rare air area a bit. said if you hook a 50 amp RV to a 30 amp outlet that you were excessively affecting the campgrounds electric service. As far as I can tell, if you plug your 50 amp rv into a 30 amp outlet, you are "abusing" the campground's electrical service exactly the same as if you had a 30 amp RV. Can't be drawing more than 30 amps. I think I would find some other "expert" to consult with. bumpy I agree with Bumpy. The article is BS. The reason 30A outlets are "burned up" is because the internals get corroded and/or weak. The plugs can also be dirty or corroded. This causes a loose connection and heats up from the high resistance. There is also the possibility that the circuit breaker is faulty and does not trip at the rated capacity. It is the job of the 30A circuit breaker in the pedestal to protect the 30A outlet by limiting to 30 amps (20% tolerance)- NOT the job of the user. Most RVers know what they can or cannot operate when on 30A. It does not matter if it is a 30A TT or a big Fiver with an adapter - EITHER one can draw more than 30A by turning on or plugging in enough items.

RE: noisy hitch

I put a plastic shim on my Reese and went out for the weekend. I definitely remember the bridge abutments causing a lot of hitch noise. This time it was actually pretty quiet. So I just wanted to say thanks to psford for posting.

RE: noisy hitch

I put a plastic shim in and it seemed to quiet down.

RE: noisy hitch

Good to know! I'm gonna try it on mine.
