Had one in our '64 Airstream. Really loved that lamp. You can get HD mantles too, that last better. Coleman ones break almost every time you move.
Wish I could put on in my Voltage, but I do not see a place I would like to mount it.
there is a gotcha, OP mentioned condensation.
For every 20 lbs. of propane, one gets 30 lbs. of water vapour. That vapour will condense and be inside that closed container, your unit.
Great if you are in the Yukon and need some humidity!
Remember though, that a 20lb bottle of propane would run one of these little lights for months if used a few hours a night.
I am not a full-timer, nor a snowbird, but I have been following this thread. I am retired and the DW is not working due to our traveling. When the ACA first started I was very much against it. Our current health insurance cost is the biggest hit of our retirement money. So I took the gamble to check into ACA. I ended up with a better health insurance policy plus we got our dental insurance back for a total of $166 less per month. This is with the monthly subsidy.
So it is not bad for everyone.
No, it is not bad for everyone. Older, lower income are the big winners, which is a lot of people rv'ing.
However, there ARE lots of losers. Mostly younger, and middle age people. Premiums are going up, dr selection is limited, deductible are going thru the roof. Those losers, are paying much more, so some can be winners.
You mention $5000 as family deductible. A LOT of the ACA plans, are around $12,000 deductible for a family! Add to that the $5-8,000 premium, and you are up in the $17-20,000 range of cost, BEFORE any insurance.
Today they are saying if the drug you take is not an approved one, they will not cover it, and you have to pay 100%. And, that expense is NOT applied to the deductible! WOW!
We are getting screwed! Again, and again, and again.
Just remember, if his lips are moving! They switch brands all the time. What better way to get u to buy what they have, then to say the other is junk?
My voltage very good. Others have posted the same. ALL brands have bad ones. Search forums, and u will find ALL have been labeled as junk. I think voltage has as good a record as the others. All could be better built, but how much do u want to pay, and how heavy do u want it?
Already 19k lbs, and $100k+ list! Would u pay $150k for a 25k lbs toyhauler? Very few would.
transamz9, I saw mpierce in here and I had just seen him post on the cummins forums, thus the reason I said something to him:) Was ragging him about the "airbag" topic...
:W 10-4 good buddy. I thought so just didn't know for sure cuz we was both making sarcastic remarks.
Just giving me jazz!
Lemon laws do not apply to RV's in all states. Hope they do in his! If anyone deserves it, they do.
RV's fall under the Magnusom Moss Warranty Act. It's a federal law in all 50 states. That's how I got rid of my lemon.
Yes, but a number of states have better lemon laws., which is what i meant. Sorry.
2013 RAM 2500 Crew Cab/Long Bed/4X4......10,000# GVWR
MAX Trailer Weight
17,120# (Longhorn Model)------2,290# Payload
17,230# (Laramie Model)-------2,400# Payload
17,290# (SLT/Big Horn/Lonestar Models)------2,460# Payload
17,300# (ST Model)--------2,470# Payload
ALL with 3:42 and 6 speed auto
And once again the low payload kills all hopes of ever getting anywhere close to that huge trailer rating!
Well, that depends. Regular RV 5th wheels, probably yes. Toyhaulers, not so much, as tend to have lower pin weights.
2500's pulling 5th wheel flat be trailers with concentrated loads, not so much, as the load can be moved forward or backward to affect the pin wt.
Does it limit wt in SOME configurations, yes. But not all.
1. You paid for it. They accepted the money. It is yours. Get an attorney. Fight them.
2. By YOUR own admission, you agreed to the higher price. They made an honest mistake, no scam. Send them the money.
Which way will YOU feel better about 5 years from now?
NC Hauler,when the air ride trucks come out you will be ready to trade!-just teasing!-whskI for one don't think air ride is all it is cracked up to be. I drive a '13 School bus with air ride and air ride seat and it is not any better or smoother than the '08 with rear springs that I drove before.
I believe the new air ride in the DRW changes the empty ride comfort. They put a really soft leaf spring in the rear for a better ride and pump up the bags for the bigger payloads. But air bags don't change the carrying capacity of a truck, it only levels the load so you should be able to run the bags with no air up to the GVWR of the truck.....LOL
But see, if the OEM does it, it is GREAT! Got to have it!
But, if aftermarket does the EXACT SAME THING, it "doesn't help any" ! (sarcasm font).
I see some folks talking about GY614 NO! GY614 are rated at 110 psi. you can't use your old low pressure 80 psi rims. You would have to get new high pressure rims a waste of money.
I just looked up your rig & you have "Axles (2) 7,000 lbs." Why put a GY614 or 17.5 tires on a 7,000 lb. axle. You would need to change out your axles for heavier axles.
Not true, necessarily. You do not "need" to change the axles, or maybe even the wheels. Check the wheels. My 16" wheels WERE rated for the higher pressure. Yours might be too. Do not go above what wheel is rated at.
However, you do NOT have to run the tire at max sidewall pressure. In fact, you should NOT, i f not needed.
We are talking about better tires, not tires to hold a higher weight. If 80# will hold the weight in your current tires, 80# will hold it in the GY 614's. Run at the 80#.
Same with the axles. My Voltage has 3 7000# axles. Max trlr rating is 19,000#. Pin 3500#. So, the three axles are holding 15,500#, at max rating. Yet, the axles are rated for 21,000#.
I put the GY114's, H rated, 17.5 tires and wheels on No need to change axles to 8k axles. Yes, the tires are overkill, I run them at 85#, well below max sidewall pressure.
I will have a whole lot less tire problems with this combo. Which is what I am striving for. Overkill, yes.
Peace of mind? PRICELESS!
If cost is an issue, try to at least do the weekly thing. Usually a week is a fair amount less than daily. We plan on moving around quite a bit too. Just starting also. Looking for an area of FL we like, and then a park. Then, down the road, probably staying there for the winter in a few years.
We plan on spending the extra money for a few years, to try to get where we want to be longterm.
So, one bad aluminum wheel, that sounds like it had hit something and was bent, and no more forever! Wow.
Most wheels on trucks on the road are aluminum. I have had steel wheels crack and fail.
Does that mean I cannot use either aluminum OR steel? Now what do I use? I have had tires fail before. Should I not use tires anymore?
If you are using it, I would not worry about dipping below freezing for short periods. I take ours into the teens overnight with no problem, as long as it is warm inside. If you have it cold just sitting, I would worry then.
Maybe the owner doesn't know everything, but you'd think he'd be aware of something this large. I mean they were giving classes on how to cheat the trucking companies without being caught. If he doesn't know what's going on why is he being paid the big bucks?
Heck, the President of the US does not know anything about anything! He says he learns about everything from watching the news on TV just like us! So, why would you expect the CEO to know all?
