RE: Intermittent Problem with Fridge

Is it in a slide? Most common problem for a warm refrigerator is poor air flow (convection) in the rear.

RE: Seahawks decal for rear of MH

...being an avid sports fan is a type of sickness.... I agree with that. :B Just don't forget, I'm not who said it!

You can bind and break the sway portion of the WDH. You're using a WDH with a class C MH? What are you towing?

RE: Seahawks decal for rear of MH

I'm not a fan of any sports team and don't watch any games Then you just wouldn't understand. Very astute of you to ascertain the point of my post. I don't understand why anyone would pay for the privilege of providing advertising to a 'for profit' corporation. I often remove the names and other labels from items I buy. The manufacturer sold me a product, I am not providing free advertising for them. I am certainly not going to pay extra money for the privilege of providing a corporation advertising. I think it is the sports fans (fanatics) that don't understand they are being used.

RE: fuel gauge not working

I don't have an answer but this would get more exposure in the Toy Hauler section or the Tech section. This is not a General RVing subject. Maybe a moderator will move it for you.

RE: Seahawks decal for rear of MH

I'm not a fan of any sports team and don't watch any games, but am curious how much the Seahawks will be paying you for the advertising space. Seems to me if they want you to advertise for them, they should be supplying the graphics. :B

RE: help with my Atwood heater please asap

Put a manometer on the system and check the LPG pressure.

RE: Battery Charging

I'll provide more info. I have a WFCO Ultra III Decmount Converter. I haven't looked at the converter yet so I don't know the exact model number.... We don't know the model number either. First you said inverter/charger and now you are writing about a converter. You also haven't told us what battery charger you are comparing with. With the information you have provided there is no way anyone can answer your question. I'm sure you will get lots of guesses though. Give the brand and model of the two charging devices and we can tell you which is likely to charge faster. That comparison is impossible without solid info. Kind of like asking which is the faster car, a red one or a green one. :B

RE: How Long Should Our Travel Trailer Be?

How Long Should Our Travel Trailer Be? Well, if you want to lie down it will need to be at least equal to your height either in width or length. :B Seriously, no one can answer this for you. You need to wear out some shoe leather and look at what is available and will meet your needs. Longer gives more room inside, but is harder to get into smaller campsites. My Aliner is only 10' long and works great. There are also 40' long trailers.

RE: Exit Now

You need a GPS for I-exit to know your location. My iPad does not have a GPS.

RE: Arctic Fox 22G

We're in the very beginning stages of building a home....the only two payments will be the Arctic Fox and home mortgage once we begin construction. The goal would be to have the house paid off in 15 years and the Arctic Fox paid off in 5 years. I know it is hard to put off getting a new toy but I think you should take care of the house business first. It would be a shame to apply for a mortgage and have your credit limited due to the recent RV purchase. At the very least, the amount you can borrow for the mortgage will be less and the interest will likely be higher. You will be paying that higher interest for a long time. A great website/phone app for examining your credit and the various improvements that can be made is https://www.creditkarma.com/. You will have to give them info like your SS# but you will receive free credit reports, advice on improving your credit score, and free credit monitoring. All services are free and safe to use, they make money if you open a recommended credit card account but there are no obligations. I took a look at that Northwood forum, it looks pretty dead compared to this and others.

RE: Arctic Fox 22G

this is a big purchase for us. Outside of a home mortgage, our philosophy is, "If we can't pay cash for it, then we don't buy it." We don't even have credit cards. HOWEVER, we can't pay cash for this Arctic Fox, therefore we are having to justify the purchase and financing. Since getting to the outdoors and traveling is a major part of our lives, we deemed this purchase as THERAPY.... I highly endorse being debt free. You are looking at a nice TT and I understand the desire. We are interested in the Arctic Fox 25R but the closest dealer is almost 300 miles. It will be a long drive to go look at one. Keep in mind, you can get the same "therapy" with a $5,000 TT as you can with a $30,000 TT. Think of the future, how does the purchase of this TT with credit play into your long range financial plans? Now run the same line of reasoning with a $5,000 TT that is paid for.

RE: Newbie looking to live on the road for a year! suggestions?

A WDH doesn't change the numbers (ratings).

RE: 12 volt batteries, solar panel and inverter.

Beemer! My micro wave is only a tiny 700 watt. Wife usually warms things up in it at lunch time such as a bowl of soup or such once or twice a day at most. That is probably power output, how many watts does it draw when operating?

RE: credit card limit

I love it when I see a station post on the pump that it is the credit card company sets the limits when this is a direct quote from Mastercard: With pump limits, for example, "There is no policy that limits transactions at the pump from MasterCard," says MasterCard spokesman Tristan Jordan. "The merchants themselves make the decision.".... Both are somewhat correct. The card company will leave the station harmless for one amount in a signature transaction and a much lower amount in a non-signature transaction. So for swipe at the pump, the station owner sets the limit at the lower amount, which is indeed set by the card company.

RE: Newbie looking to live on the road for a year! suggestions?

You will have a hard time avoiding exceeding the payload of the truck. Get the truck weighed first. Subtract that weight from the GVWR. Now you will know how much payload is available for the motorcycle, passengers, gear, and trailer tongue. The tongue weight of any TT will be 12-14% of the loaded weight so by determining how much tongue weight capacity you have, you'll know how much loaded TT you can tow.

RE: 12 volt batteries, solar panel and inverter.

A 7 watt panel is nearly worthless. Your microwave may use 1,000 watts or more. You do the math on the recharge time. Other than the teeny tiny panel, your plan sounds okay.

RE: DIY RV Kayak Rack plans

If it has to be welded, it is not really a DIY project.

RE: 12 Volt Power to My Outlets

They are easy to find! Just walk around the campground and ask! True dat! :B

RE: 12 Volt Power to My Outlets

...have an electrical engineer experienced with delicate medical equipment to plan and design the structural design, and anexperienced RV technigian to perform the actual installation tasks. Then have an electrical inspector approve the entire job.... That is hilarious; It is unlikely an electrical engineer had anything to do with designing the electrical system in your RV to start with. I doubt many RV technicians have much electrical knowledge when it comes to wire gauge and resistance. Where exactly do you go to find an electrical inspector to check your 12vdc electrical receptacle inspection? Inspectors R Us?
