RE: Electrical truck to trailer connection question

It is unclear to me exactly what you want to do. Maybe jumper cables from the truck would be simplest solution. Personally, I would either plug it in or install battery.

RE: Where did you get your Electrical knowledge?

Learned most everything I know in the trades by three steps. Dismantling Observing others Reading Learned enough that now I earn my living in the trades.

RE: Butyl tape / sealant / or both?

Butyl tape. Be aware that putty tape and butyl are not the same.

RE: Nov Savings Circular pricing not honored in CW Las Vegas

...I told him this was twice now his store was unable to service me right and I would give it one more change in the future.... Assuming you meant chance and not change, you certainly are a glutton for punishment!

RE: No Praises for GSRA Today - I Need to Rant

...Our toys riding comfortably on the utility trailer behind the truck. At about mile marker 11 on S2, we had a blow out on the trailer.... Wait a minute, when did GS ERS start covering utility trailers? I'm pretty sure utility and boat trailers are not covered. That is one major reason that I have never purchased GS ERS.

RE: FOUND!!!!!!!!!!! [Our travel trailer was stolen.]

I hope it is in good condition and you can go back to using it again. I also hope all your possessions are still intact. ...I will buy tire boot locks.... Make sure you get the kind with a plate that covers the lug nuts. Otherwise a thief can remove the wheel, install the spare, and go on their way. They will leave behind the wheel and boot.

RE: securing a travel trailer

Take the tires and wheels off. Too extreme? Boot one or more wheels. Too extreme still? Coupler lock.

RE: back up camera won't work in reverse

RE: Pop-Off Valve Replacement

They are easy to replace as others have said. If it drips occasionally when first heating water, it is normal. An RV has a closed water system. When the water is heated, it expands and increases pressure in the system. A house normally has an open water system so the pressure does not build.

RE: Are there any mfrs with bad overall reputations?

...I am not aware of any current major mfg with a bad reputation. Probably true in most industries. The bad ones usually end up putting themselves out of business. Unfortunately the last people to buy before they fold usually get screwed. With the recent downturn in the RV business many closed the doors. Some due to financial reasons and others because of simply being a poorly run business. A bad reputation usually results in money troubles.

RE: Dometic 2652 RBX Not Properly Vented In Tango Trailer

It has appeared to me over the years that RV manufacturers are concerned about cranking out volume, not quality. It is very common for refrigerators to be installed incorrectly like yours was. The worst culprits for incorrect installation are the ones installed in slides. Installation in a slide is less than optimal from the beginning and when done wrong the RV buyer is screwed.

RE: Is it time for less Marcus

You gotta admit that Marcus came along at a good time in the life of the Good Sam Club. They were on the skids and he has pulled them back. It may be time to loosen the reins and use the Co. talent whether it is @ Good Sam or Camping World. I have to disagree with your opinion. The Good Sam Club was doing fine, it was Camping World, Freedom Roads, and various other AGI entities that were struggling. I really wish that the Good Sam Club would be split from the rest and made independent. Unfortunately it won't happen because the Good Sam Club is considered a "marketing tool" to sell various RV related goods and services. Those are the boss' own words. As for more or less Marcus, I don't care, I have never seen "The Profit". I wish him success in all his endeavors, I just wish he would make the Good Sam Club a separate and independent entity. Changing the name of AGI to Good Sam Enterprises is nothing but another marketing strategy to take advantage of the well earned reputation of the Good Sam Club.

RE: Propane Tanks Question

Here in Ohio most places sell by weight, even Amerigas sells by weight. Others like FJ/Pilot meter and sell by the gallon.

RE: Propane Tanks Question

...There is an interesting article about propane out there that some of you should read. It's called "Geeking out over Propane" by Amerigas.:B Sometimes there is to much Geeking out on a lot of RV subjects when it could be alot less technical for the average Joe. Not sure of the definition of "Geeking" but if it means a strive for accuracy, I'm all for it. Written communication requires accuracy in the use of names and labels. If I am standing beside someone and they call a cylinder a tank, I know what they mean. If I am reading a discussion of a tank, I assume it is a tank, not a cylinder. Also since some retailers sell LPG by the pound and others sell it by the gallon, how do you compare prices? It is easy if you know how much a gallon weighs, impossible if you don't. That little bit of accurate information affects your wallet. I work in the engineering and architectural field. Directions can only be followed correctly if the originator uses the correct name/terminology. Correct names and terms avoid confusion and costly mistakes.

RE: water pressure reducer

...Are there ones that are adjustable that you can increase the water flow... Increase the flow or the pressure? The flow is inherent to the design of the device, some do have adjustable pressure.

RE: Is it time for less Marcus

interesting discussion. :)
beemerphile1 11/19/14 01:33pm General RVing Issues

...It's not a real campfire, but it does a nice job for its purpose. Stick your hand in it and tell me it isn't real! :B The fire is the same, it is only the fuel that is different. At $5 a handful for campground wood, the LPG almost looks cheap.
