RE: C-Pap power usage

...I may have to look into one of the little "Mr. Heater" Free Standing Catalytic heaters for real cold nights..... FWIW, I don't believe Mr. Heater produces any portable catalytic heaters, only blue flame heaters. The Buddy line of heaters are all blue flame heaters.

RE: Strange Propane Tubing in Euro Travel Trailer (small images)

Follow the line back to the nearest threaded fitting and repipe from there. In case you are not aware, do not use any compression fittings for LPG, only threaded or flared.

RE: Gas pice

This may not be the forum for this but.... I just joined the pilot flying j credit for gas procedure and am wondering if I use my credit card which gives me a 5 cent per gallon discount on my account then swipe my Good Sam card, will that be negated or will I get a healthy discount using two sources for gas discount. Thanks McD I doubt you can stack the Good Sam Charge Card discount and the Good Sam Membership Card discount. The best deal by far is the GS Membership Card together with a rewards credit card. My PNC card gives me a 4 percent reward on all fuel purchases at any station. Think about it, 4 percent is a heck of a lot more than 5 cents per gallon. The GS Charge Card is worthless in my opinion.

RE: Utility trailer mod for toys

Slide PVC pipe over the steel to act as a roller. Lift one end onto the rear of trailer and then push forward.

RE: Fresh meat here

Family of four - keep in mind that most tow vehicle manufacturers require that passengers and gear in the tow vehicle gets subtracted from the tow rating.

RE: Aquatainers bad spouts and caps crack...

I've got three Aquatainers I have used for around 6 to 8 years, never had any trouble. One winter I accidentally left the Aquatainers filled with water - they froze solid - the only damage was the sides bulged out a bit.

The reason is because FMCA membership numbers are dropping like a rock. If they don't bring in towables they are likely to end up shutting down in the not too far distant future.

RE: Moving up from F 150 to F 350 6.7 diesel

I went from a 1998 4.6L Ford to a 2016 Duramax/Allison. WOW!

RE: Cockroaches

Roaches require a regular/reliable source of water, do you have any leaks?

RE: Brand new Kodiak trailer - can't use toilet

This also shows the factory never did any water test on the plumbing because part of the test is flushing the toilet, I wonder what other issues are down the road, and what other test was not done as well... Almost no factory does any testing or quality control on new units. The dealer gets paid to do a PDI which obviously would have caught the problem. Factories make mistakes but in this case the dealer screwed the OP by not doing the work they were paid for doing.

RE: Lightweight Bicycle suggestion

I've never seen a lightweight beach cruiser. To get lighter mountain bikes will cost proportionally more money. Every ounce lighter costs $$$.

RE: Brand new Kodiak trailer - can't use toilet

This thread is a perfect example of the benefits of quoting the OP! I and any one else reading this in the future is clueless because every post made by the OP is now deleted.

RE: Charging battery on TT

Three year old battery? I would figure it would still have at least another four years life in it, don't discard it.

RE: Genesis Supreme issues

I respect everyone's opinion but honestly at this point I disagree. Initially CW requested Siding repair to be performed and Genesis declined. This is not CW's fault and thus far they have been fourth coming which I can't say regarding Genesis.... Are you getting this information from CW? Are you verifying with the factory?

RE: carbon monoxide detector

Checking all your LPG connections is a good idea but has nothing to do with a CO detector. The CO detector reads the gas as a result of combustion. When the detector alerts, is there any combustion going on? Water heater? Furnace? Generator?

RE: Exterior light indicator

My trailer came with lighted switches for all the outside lights. I still forget and leave them on occasionally in spite of the glowing red switch.

RE: Good Sam Insurance

Just like cable, internet, and phone companies, the insurance companies punish existing customer for being loyal. The new customers get the deals and the existing customers get increases. This is done because they know a certain percentage of customers will not shop around but simply pay the increases. It is wise to shop your insurance every few years.

RE: gel cell chargging questions

"On what do you base that statement?" My opinion is that gel batteries don't recharge as well as wet batteries and that a better choice is AMG batteries. Yes, drsteve. If these are good batteries at $60 a good deal. On gels vs. AMGs or wets, gels lose without a terrific deal. If one wants their advice to be accepted as credible, one should attempt to get their terminology (acronym) correct. AMG? :h

RE: gel cell chargging questions

I have been using East Penn gel 12v batteries for years. They are mobility scooter batteries and I get them for free at 18 months of age from rental scooters. I have never done anything special in caring for them. I do have a charger with a gel setting but I also use two different converters plus the alternator. Even though mine are used hard for 18 months before I get them they still do fine for years of dry camping. Trying to charge at high voltage/amperage like an AGM can cause gel batteries to form air pockets inside which does reduce the capacity and serviceable life.

RE: Reflective tape

Great idea. I have added reflective tape to bicycles, motorcycles, cars, trucks, and RVs. One of my favorites is the black tape on a black surface that is nearly invisible in daylight but shines bright white when hit by lights at night.
