RE: Converter problem?

Monitor the water level in the battery monthly and refill with demin water. Deal with the battery or deal with burned out 12v control boards. You could also just upgrade the converter/charger, but even then you still have to monitor battery electrolyte levels.

RE: Coleman grill modifications

You have to remove the regulator from the grill. Then you can use quick connects and tap into the rv's propane system after it is regulated down. Its not expensive and not hard to do.

RE: How do I stop my batteries from charging?

Look again. There should be single ac breaker that feeds the converter ( which makes DC power and charges the batteries). The microwave should have its own ac breaker.

RE: Indiana and Michigan

Say you're coming out of the Chicago area. About 2 hours out puts you in South Haven. Sunnybrook is a good rv park just east of town. A number of things to see and do in the area including beaches, blueberries, SH shops, Saugatuck shops, Grand Rapids, etc. I-94 between Chicago and Detroit is my least favorite road. Numerous big trucks and commuters who think 80 mph is slow. Its also a rough road. If coming from the South and don't have to do Chicago, then I like US-31 out of Indianapolis. Along that route just SW of South Bend, IN you will find Potato Creek State Park. I can't speak for Indiana, but Michigan State Parks are difficult to get into. Plan well in advance for those.

RE: 4WD Questions

So you want AWD becuase conditions might change and you may not recognize the need to put the vehicle into 4WD? If conditions warrant it, flipping the switch at most any speed into 4WD for any of today's trucks is easy to accomplish. Honestly though, my tow experience in 4WD is limited to slippery/hilly situations for parking or retrieving the trailer from the campsite. If it wasn't for my work, I would not have a 4x4 truck for towing.

RE: Pretty girl and a nice tune about RVing

Thanks for sharing. I will add that one to the camping collection.

RE: Florida Rules for Truck Camping

I've searched the MCL (Michigan Compiled Laws) database, the rules for campground/rv resort development and operation from the DEQ/Public Health Department and can find no State of Michigan law prohibiting removal of truck camper from the truck at a public or private campground. But, I do remember a trip just a few years ago to a former rv park turned campground and was told I could not park my motorhome at an angle because of fire code. I suspect if there is such a prohibition on truck campers, it comes down to an individual location, in a specific jurisdiction where they are interpreting very stringently NFPA 1194 which has a paragraph talking about designing sites/campgrounds/rv parks for the safe and efficient placement/removal of camping units.

RE: Chevrolet 6.0 compared to 5.3

I believe in something a friend told me once about his big ford he owned. He said I like this truck. I really like this truck and if I checked the gas mileage and see just how bad the mileage is, I would have to get rid of it. so I son't check the gas mileage. I just drive it. saying that the chev 6.0 with 4.10's is what I have and it pulls the TT I have just fine. and when I go to Yuma, I stop every time I see a gas station and keep it full of gas. when I keep the truck full of gas, it is happy, and I am happy. besides gassing up every time you come to a station, he helps eliminate sticker shock with the price of gas these days. AND at my age, I like to get out and walk every now then Wish there was a "like" button.

RE: Thinking About a TT, Confused About Towing

Go weigh the 4-runner and subtract that weight from the 5580. That'll tell you how much you have to work with in terms of payload.

RE: Thinking About a TT, Confused About Towing

Open your driver's side door and look at the maximum payload rating. It will be on the sticker on the door frame. Probably between 1200 and 1400 lbs. That includes the tongue weight of the trailer, you, any guests in the 4-runner and any cargo in the 4-runner. Tongue weight is usually between 10% and 15% of the trailer's loaded weight. The closer to 15 the better. The dry weight of the trailer doesn't include any upgrade options, fuel in the propane tanks, water in the water tanks, your stuff in the cabinets, etc. A 5,000 lb loaded trailer will have a tongue weight between 500 and 750 lbs. At 750, me and another 250 lb friend would almost max out a 2006 4-runner on payload.

RE: Silverado dissolves itself

Get some pH test strips and go to wiping within the deformity pattern after driving the truck. I would do it several times and under varying conditions, including pulling the trailer.
