RE: haggling on camping prices

Best line is honestly simple. "Do you offer a cash discount?" And...For those who want to pay full price there's MasterCard.

RE: trailer hitch on front of a motor home

Even though you can see it better.. Its not all that much easier trying to maneuver a trailer and backing up around the ramp and a lot on the front of a vehicle. I would build something to just attach to the trailer to better see it in the mirrors for backing. I'm sure you could even make it removable.

RE: Renting provisioning kit

To outfit an RV I would just go to a couple garage sales you should be able to get everything for a couple bucks.

RE: X- Chocks , kinda

I've read with interest all these X chock threads but, one question keeps popping into my head. What happens when you forget to remove them and drive away?? It looks like if you did that it would damage your TT or tires. I forget my cheap orange chocks all the time. It never hurts anything. I just go opps, and then go back and pick them up. With the 4 trailer tires locked up you cant just drive forward away and over the chocks.

RE: Making sure I have this right?

The only issue is that #8 is not enough for 50 amp service, that will have to be fused at 40 amps (which would be fine, really). #6 is what is required for 50 amps. Not correct. #8 wire is rated for 50 amps as long as the terminations at the breaker and the pedestal are rated 75 deg C. Virtually all modern breakers are 75C rated. You will need to check the temp rating of the pedestal terminals. That said, if the feeder length is much over 50 feet you will start getting excessive voltage drop at full load. 8-3 NM-b is only rated for 40a so technically your both right. :)

RE: how do I undo these hoses?

I make sure to release the water pressure first then I use a small adjustable wrench held flat and slide down the hose to depress the ring and make sure to pull hose after depressing ring not before.

RE: Vortex fan install Wiring Questions

I'm not sure why they needed to run two wires down the wall to the new fan switch. You normally only need to pull one black wire from the new switch to the new fan wire. (with a wall switch my option would be to bypass the new fan pushbutton switch) The 12v + is already at the bottom of the existing light switch and needs to be jumpered to the new fan switch. The 12v- just gets connected in the ceiling. I assumed from the original post there was no existing wall switch. Therefore, he would need a wire going to the switch and one coming from the switch to the fan. Not two SETs of wires, just two wires. Converting a Light/ Fan with independently controlled switches only requires three wires a 12v+ feed and two switched legs. In the reference post pics that mod was done with four wires one being lamp cord. There's no need to add a 12v+ down from the ceiling and back up when there's a 12v+ already at the light switch. :)

RE: Vortex fan install Wiring Questions

For a existing bathroom fan replacement you would just connect the vortex 12v- white wire to the 12v- white wire already in the ceiling. Then from your new double switch there should already be a 12v+ that need to be a small jumper over to the second switch and then pull a black wire up thru the wall to the Vortex and connect at the red wire nut location. Also make sure to remove the pushbutton black wire from the red nut at this time.

RE: ordering tires

I've never found any larger size tires cheaper on the internet with mounting balancing shipping or tax than my local tire stores. Plus all have included free lifetime rotation and balancing.

RE: Mr. Heater Buddy use question!

The best suggestion and safest would be to fix the RV furnace.

RE: Ideas for attaching items under the RV

Most newer trailers have about 30 Tek screws per side holding up the Coroplast underbelly panels to the frame so I figure 4 more wouldn't hurt.

RE: removing "Ghost lettering" left from removed decals on paint

Buff and hand polish as its not just removing oxidation as also the area under the decal has no scratches and they just need to be blended to hide as you'll never remove it completely.

RE: tire size question

The words faster and cheaper are what usually get me in trouble. Thats why when my oem BlowMaster tires looked grimm after four years I opted for Maxxis replacement which took three days from order to mounted for $535. For your weight trailer the smaller tire max load would be fine you could even go to smaller 14" rim LRC and still carry the weight.

RE: Simple Night Light Mod

I use a simple night light in the bathroom 120 v outlet retrofitted with a blue led as it seems to light up the legos and dog toys strategically placed along my walking path...

RE: 5.4 is a screamer!!!

If you leave the trans in OD towing over 6000 lbs any distance your trans should be needing rebuilding shortly regardless of your axle ratio. And yes your mpgs will increase also. A friend of mine lost his tranny not realizing he should tow with OD off. I've been towing in O/D for years and no problems. Of course the 4.30's help in that department! Funny how some people give advice on something they have never tried for them selves. Yes you can drive with it in OD if you have a V10 but the 5.4 with a 3.55 will be shifting in and out of OD and your trans temps will be going thru the roof. And Yes I've tried it many times esp. with fuel over the $4 a gal years. :)

RE: High Pressure Propane Hose

That hose connects to the regulated or low pressure side of the propane line on the trailer... You will also need to remove the regulator on the grill to make it function correctly...

RE: Zip Dee awning lights

I attached a bungie cord with a hook on each end of light strand and just hook it to each support arm. I'm not sure this would work with heavier light strands but mine is lightweight. For a heavier set of lights I would run a cable or rope to support lights from.

RE: RainX Windshield Chip Repair

I've yet to see a home glass repair or even a professional repair that is decent. I advise everyone that if its anywhere close to the drivers view to replace the glass.
