RE: Do you turn off your engine at the gas station?

Besides the law or your hope vehicle gets stolen rants is there any viable reasons why anyone thinks their vehicle is more prone to suddenly burst into flames while refueling when its running verses not running???

RE: truck to camper power cord trying to melt

When at home I cheat and use contact cleaner in a spray can...On the road Q-tips, wd-40 nail file... I try to stay away from abrasives as they scrape the tin coat of the connectors and then they seem to corrode even more...

RE: Rockin' out (I guess)........how much is too much?

RE: truck to camper power cord trying to melt

More than likely you had arcing in the plug... Clean and inspect both contacts add a lil dielectric grease and replace if they're bad...

RE: Do you turn off your engine at the gas station?

I keep it running mostly to just keep it comfortable in the cab and wear and tear... When I'm towing the trailer its always running till we either stop for food or reach our destination...Most fuel stations I'm at are busy and have vehicles running all around me either pulling in or pulling out so I don't see any benefit to me shutting mine off... I will admit I'm always at the nozzle when fueling which to me is more important...

RE: ducted vs non ducted ac

I've a ducted 15,000 in a 21' and it runs mostly on low after intial cool down. No cold spots or hot spots as vents are adjustable. Only issue was the oem POS thermostat has almost 6+ deg swing which has been changed out to a simple digital from White Rodgers and now a total of 2deg swing.

RE: Engine Oil Jug Safety Seals Broken

Promptly take back any product with the safety seal or tamper ring damaged or removed. It maybe some knucklehead whackjob or manufacturing defect. Dont risk it!!! This knowledge all coming from the birth state of product tampering.

RE: Stove light upgrade

To answer the question simply its only been in service one complete season of stove top and oven use... I know our use is simple baking biscuits and frying bacon mostly... I did this mod in the spring this year and noticed no cracking or heat checking in the acrylic lens covers... Hengs oem lens cover is plastic and also the filter retainer are located closer to the stove top heat source... Answer#1 not a silly ? but yes most RV lighting and fans are 12v...

RE: Stove light upgrade

Wiring is all from original switch from stove I believe one screw needs to be removed from stove to gain access to wires and drill two holes for wires... LEDs are from walmart boating section installed with self tapping screws into top of hood being carefull that the screws land in void in cabinet... Less than thirty min install and crisp white light...

RE: Another digital thermostat question

It functioned fine as in no more 6 degree temp swings but the switches located on the bottom are a PIA for my non dainty fingertips to operate. I used it till my WR thermo arrived which was only 2 days. I also have the toggle switch hi/lo mod which works well for ac units... http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y60/yamadooed/RV/18B7D937-ED20-4322-9F87-8F39CE56673D_zpsqxznb768.jpg width=640 Moderator edit to re-size picture to forum limit of 640px maximum width.

RE: Another digital thermostat question

I installed the same thermostat and removed it after I found the one I wanted. They also sell heat only models for $25. http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y60/yamadooed/RV/C7B5E1C6-D44D-4B7E-ABEE-B43D93FE37A4_zpsqa3qzsrz.jpg width=640 White Rodgers Thermostat with backlight and current temp and setpoint temp display. http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y60/yamadooed/RV/ED0FC7C8-B1F4-4C96-805D-358321906D31_zps9hhtz6oh.jpg width=640 Moderator edit to re-size pictures to forum limit of 640px maximum width.

RE: Another digital thermostat question

The thermostat is just a basic on-off switch on a two wire system.

RE: All Wheel Drive

I would opt for the 4wd so that 95% of the time I can keep it disengaged. Then for the 5% of the time I need it its only a pushbutton away. I always opt for 4wd with lsd which I believe will outperform any AWD system either on or offroad when engaged. FYI I have never needed to engaged 4wd when towing the camper. (yet)
