RE: Regarding free over nights

Most of the truck stops we have stayed at have put us up front under a light and with a camera on us. Quite and out of the way of the trucks moving around all night. Not had a problem yet except being tired when we pulled in late at night. We don't like getting to campground after 10pm. and waking everyone up so we will stay else where. I don't like parking at Walmart it can get expensive when the wife goes in to get a few things.

RE: Trailer Door Locks

You do not need a key to open a RV lock. All you need is a large screwdriver. Do not waste your money on new keys, will not slow anyone down. And do not keep anything you cant replace in the RV. If you could make door more secure all you would have to do is go thru the escape window or a wall. To answer your questions (1) yes they can be re-keyed. (2) NO only just a few combinations.

RE: Name your rig?

Ours in named Camper and the truck is named Truck. It makes is easy for the dogs to know what door to go to. Just say Camper and they are at the camper door. Also if you say walk in front of them they go get their leashes and bring them to you. And are the animals named "Dog 1" and "Dog 2"? Had a friend who named their dog "JD" ... when I asked why he said they couldn't come up with anything better so they settled on JD ... for Just Dog. :B No the dogs are named Kringles and Wind-Up. And they only answer to there own name. Call them the wrong name and they will ignore you.

RE: Super Duty #1 stolen truck

I have a throttle cutoff switch on our Super Duty somewhere in the wiring. You might steal it but your getaway is only going to be at idle. Not going to say where switch is, but I do use it all the time. Bad thing is I sometimes forget to turn it back on, makes for a slow drive.

RE: Does this make any sence?

Our 5th wheel toy hauler has both axles under the garage area. The forward axle is at the front of the garage area. The side by side sits over the axles. Truck squats 2 inches with or without the SxS in the 5th wheel. Only problem we have is the axles back makes it hard to back into some tight sites. Makes for a long wheel base. Nice thing is very little rear overhang.

RE: Generator Usage in Parking Lots/Public Streets

We have a Onan built in on our fifth wheel toy hauler. We stop generator is running. My 7.3 diesel at idle is louder than the generator at full load. And my truck is not loud. In my option run your generator and do not worry about it.

RE: My generator is surging

Take a small screwdriver and pry in several places between the bowl and plastic. It will come off. I have the same generator.

RE: Questions about power for overnighting

I have a onan 4kw flat twin 1800 rpm generator. When my truck is idling you can not hear the generator. Yes it will make some noise it just sounds like a quite car.I have a automotive muffler on it not a generator silencer.

RE: Questions about power for overnighting

That is why we got a toy hauler. Installed 4kw generator and have at 30 gallon on board fuel tank. Pull into parking lot start generator. Watch some TV go to bed with A/C running all night and make coffee and breakfast in the morning. Pull into restarea or parking lot traveling and push button and everything works. Stop at antique shops spend several hours and have a nice cool RV to go to. If you want A/C get generator.
