RE: Space Heaters

The largest heater you can buy is only 1,500 watts and can be used with any 15 amp circuit. Buy whatever you want but I like small and cheap. Now is a great time to get heavily discounted heaters from stores wanting to clear old stock. Probably $10 - $15 will get you a perfectly functional heater.

RE: Best Survival Food Companies???

Depends on your goals. We have a stockpile of normal food at home. I don't see the need for anything special. In the vehicles we have water, some MREs with heaters and some Datrex bars.

RE: slow water

Ok enough of the jokes, I misspell a word and all the comedians show up. how about any helpful information on my question about slow water. Did you read the replies? Check strainers on spigots.They may be stopped up. the water was slow dancing since it was coming from the speakers lol any way the strainers might be plugged or the pump is going out That doesn't seem like a good thing. Does music come out of the faucet? :B clean the aerator.

RE: Who Leaves the on-demand Pump On

Our pump goes on when we set up, as does the how water tank on electric. It all gets shut down if we leave the rig for the day, or when we hit the road to come home. If we are hooked to city water I am also inclined to turn off the supply tap if we leave the site. Basically if I get a leak with my pump 50 gallons is going to go everywhere but I should be there to stop it. The choice is yours as to how to utilize the systems in your rig. Daryll I think you missed that this is the boondocking forum. I doubt you operate your water heater on electric while boondocking.

RE: Renogy portable suitcase solar

In reality the only warranty affected would be on the cord, not the entire system. You can go to any auto parts store and buy everything you need to make up your own cord. I would just snip the end and put on the ring terminals, but I'm a rebel that way.

RE: LED lights. On Awning Tube or under roof???

I wouldn't suggest under the roof, no one would see it there. I would put it on the sidewall below the awning tube.

RE: slow water

took our camper out for a weekend and I noticed that the water coming from the speakers run slow is there anything I can do to speed up the water flow? That doesn't seem like a good thing. Does music come out of the faucet? :B clean the aerator.

RE: Free Lifemember annual 12 point RV inspection

I see the Camping World bashers are out in force this morning. Before you flame me, I am not a CW cheerleader. I just calls them as I sees them. Good or bad. Not a basher but been around long enough to know that a "free inspection" is code for 'sales tool'.

RE: Free Lifemember annual 12 point RV inspection

Probably includes a sales pitch to sell you services you don't want. :B Those free inspections are always used as a sales tool to get you in the door.

RE: Propane fill question

I don't understand all the confusion on this subject which gets rehashed regularly. An LPG cylinder is filled to 80% of WC (water capacity). That means a 40# rated cylinder holds, guess what, 40# of LPG when filled to 80% of WC. cuz folks keep posting incorrect info. 42% of WC is not the same as 80% WC. WC is in lbs not vol. 80% WC does not account for the sg difference. 42% does. http://www.mantank.com/products/dotproducts/5-420steel.htm http://www.nfpa.org/Assets/files/AboutTheCodes/58/58-98-PDF.pdf You're right, I corrected the error in my post. I was typing one thing and thinking another thing causing the error.

RE: Blocking TT off wheels when storing and tires still good?

I agree with OP that I would be worried about those tires now that they've been flattened and frozen for an extended time. I would probably replace and ensure that I got new quality valves included. Same here, I would fear the tires had been damaged sitting in that condition for a prolonged period.

RE: Bike-accessory research

I took your survey, I didn't have any problem with it but I doubt this thread meets the forum rules.

RE: Propane tank soft covers

FWIW you are not required to have a cover providing the cylinder is turned so the valve is protected by the collar. You do need a cover on the regulator.

RE: Leaky camper shell windows.

Hard knowing what you have. I had a truck cap that the windows were set in a rubber gasket. To seal required lifting the edge of the rubber and injecting sealing goop of some sort. The truck cap place did it under warranty and had a very thin nozzle on what looked something like a caulking gun.

RE: Propane tank soft covers

A soft cover will need replaced within a few years. Cover must be removed to access valve. A hard cover will last just about forever. An opening is provided for accessing valves without removing cover.

RE: Propane fill question

Sorry 40 pound cylinder holds 32 pounds. Math is perfect. A cylinder with 40# capacity takes 40# LPG to fill. The rule is 80% of WC (water capacity) NOT LPG capacity.

RE: Who Leaves the on-demand Pump On

We try to remember to turn it off when leaving the campsite. There is no benefit to constantly be turning it off and on.
