RE: Canmpingworld.ca is not correct in any way...

I just checked out the site with much anticipation, only to be let down. Prices arent anything special, once you add the shipping on top you can pretty much get it for cheaper locally. I thought there prices/shipping would be fairly competitive, but they're not.

I just thought i would post back a quick update! I have been diagnosing the problem the last few days and realize that i had a problem with receptacle at my house and my trailer wasnt getting power. So when i went camping my rig went with a pretty much dead batter even though it had been plugged in prior to our trip! The only charge it got was during the hour long trip towing the trailer to the campground. Thanks everyone for your input, i am now ready for my first week of holidays next week!

Do you have a voltmeter? What's the battery voltage under charge? What's the voltage after it sits for 3 days disconnected? I do not have a voltmeter but will be picking one up tonight as they are on sale. I am hoping its just the battery and nothing else as we are leaving for a summer holidays with the trailer in 11 days! I will investigate the matter this weekend and get back to all of you. Thanks for the help. If anyone else has any input its much appreciated.

On our last trip after setting up our low battery indicator started beeping at us within a few hours of setting up. We only dry camp and can normally go about 3 days without the battery needing a recharge via the genny. After coming home i charged the battery by pluggin the travel trailer cord into an extension cord with adapter from the house and left in plugged into the shore power for a week. I then unplugged it and turned on the lights and radio just to see how quick the battery would drain. The battery went from reading full to empty in 1 hour, and the lights were extremely dim. My question is does this sound like just a bad battery not holding a charge, or is there other issues ? The battery is a single 12v Interstate RV battery thats only 2 years old. I am hoping to get some advice, i am mechanically inclined but lack knowledge of the charging system in travel trailers etc. Thanks in advance.

RE: 2011 PUMA 30FBSS advice needed on purchase ?

My wife and I have a 2011 Puma 19 RL that we use regularly for normal camping, and I also use it as a hunting camp during deer season. We absolutley love it, and have had no problems whatsoever with it. We are going to upgrade to a larger unit this summer or fall, and will be buying another Puma. IMHO your MIL will not be disappointed. That's great to here, thanks!

2011 PUMA 30FBSS advice needed on purchase ?

My MIL is looking to buy a 2011 Puma 30FBSS this weekend and i am going to check it out tonight for her. I am just curious if anyone on here owns one of these or a Puma for that matter, what are there weak spots ? Anything in particular i should look for ? Thanks in advance. Michael

RE: Opinions wanted.

This guy must be crazy! That fifth wheel is 1 ton dually territory!

Cooling fans in outside compartment are located near the top. Hard to see from lower vent opening. So it could be a fan up high. Just one other suggestion..... Is the power distribution panel/converter located below fridge. Could it be the converter cooling fan squeaking? I will have to figure this out this weekend, ive never looked for the converter but i am sure it is behind the breaker box with all the breakers/fuses. So there is a fan for the refrigerator ??

RE: Overweight.

That is way to much weight for your suburban. Once you factor in the weight of all the cargo in the trailer, plus weight of occupants of the vehicle you will most likely be over the payload rating for your suburban. I would reccomend staying at a trailer around 6500 loaded.

open the outside vent see if that helps find the noise? or a mouse got in there and wants out?? just kidding Lol it sounds exactly like a mouse, but its definately not HAHA....I am not to worried about it as it has done it for awhile now, fridge and freezer work great....It would just be nice to eliminate that noise....I have taken the cover off on the outside of the trailer, almost sounds like its coming from the vent that goes out the roof maybe ?
michaelman501 05/01/13 01:18pm Travel Trailers

I have a 2008 Fleetwood Mallard with a Dometic refrigerator/freezer....Just recently the fridge started to make a squeal noise once over 5 minutes or so...Its not getting louder or anything...I have it running on propane when it makes the squeal, i dont think it makes this noise while on 120...Any ideas guys/gals ? Thanks in advance, Michael

RE: Still New... :) Inverter generator question

Dont know how close you are to costco in Canada but they are on for $399 there.

RE: Still New... :) Inverter generator question

I have a Yamaha 2000 watt inverter, its the perfect size for running EVERYTHING in my trailer(other than A/C )The Yamaha runs about 1200$ though...I have seen the Champion 2000 watt inverter generator at Costco for $399 when on sale(Not sure if you have a costco card/costco near you..) But i think for a tight budget thats the perfect generator to get! Anything smaller will be underpowered most likely...Good luck and let us know what you decide!

RE: Bubbles under fibreglass

This is called delamination and is due to water intrusion. The water usually leaks in from a front window if yours has that, or from the seam that connects the front cap to the rubber roof. Once this starts it is very pricy to fix and only gets worse over time. You will want to identify and stop the leak immediatly, and then go from there as to repairing the delamination.
