RE: Water Heater on or off when Full Timing

We spend so much time on 30amp that when our thirteen year old gas/electric water heater started leaking I opted for a dsi gas only. It only comes on when needed and I rather keep the energy hog fridge on the 120. Even then with other appliances energy management comes into play.

RE: Gravity fill water issue

As Bumpyroad mentioned, it is not unusual at all to not have a gravity fill. While my prior rig, a 2002 Cedar Creek, had one, my current rig, a 2008 Jayco Designer does not. While surprised and disconcerted at first, it's turned out to be not such a big issue. If I need to put water in the tank when attached to city water pressure, I simply set the control panel to tank fill. If I need to put some water in from a 5 gallon jug, I set it in the winterize mode which sucks water out of the jug. The only 'complaint' that that I have is the amount of time it takes to fill an 80 gallon tank via the smaller pex lines. Was faster with a gravity fill. And a 100 gallon takes takes longer.

RE: Award winning chili recipe?

1# lean ground beef 3 cloves of garlic dice 1 medium onion dice 2 green peppers, diced 1 can of chpotle peppers in adobe sause 2 16 oz cans of black beans 2 16 oz cans of kidney beans 1 32 oz can crushed tomatoes 2 teaspoons cocoa 2 tablespoons cilantro Brown ground beef add onion and garlic and half of the chopped green pepper till they soften. Add undrained beans, tomatoes and chpotle peppers and simmer about an hour. add cocoa and cilantro and the rest of the chopped green peppers stir well, simmer another half hour. This is a spicey chili do to the chpotle peppers, I serve with chopped onions, shredded chedder, and sour cream on the side. This chili has won cookoffs. You can increase the ground beef if you want more meat or more beans if that's your preferance.

RE: Seasonal RV Security?

I'd be more worried about it turning green with algae.

RE: 6 point level error

First time hooking up after leaving the dealer the rear jacks timed out fully extended???? Back to the cheat sheet. Got back to somewhere and retracted the rear and hooked up. No problem at the next campground. Looked like a pro, unhooked pushed the AUTO LEVEL and talked to the neighbor as the trailer did its stuff.

RE: Resi fridges in more and more units

We went with the residential fridge. We spend 99.9% of our time on full hookups. For for that 0.1% we have a 2000.watt gen. Most important is that the beer is cold.

RE: Toilet Wont hold water in bowl after gasket replacement.

The parts guy at Camping World Advised against using any grease. However, I did spray all the gaskets and ball with Silicone spray. That's your problem the water is slipping by.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2018

We are late comers to the party. We full time in a fifth wheel, and are seriously considering buying a small trailer or truck camper to make this journey. I feel like places will be much more accessible to us if we go smaller. We will be leaving from southern AZ at the end of April and hope to arrive in AK mid-late May. Hope to meet up in Alaska 2018! Mark/Leslie We drove up in 15, size is not a big deal. We only had a problem once with our 35 ft fifth wheel and cc drw. There were no sites left in a private park that we would fit. Drove down the road a bit and found a site at another. If you don't mind drycamping most pulloffs are welcoming to overnite stays. We're on the list for 18 see ya on the road.

RE: OK, Washer and Dryer in your RV...Do you use them?

If we were weekend campers and a two week vacation I would see no need for a W/D. We though are fulltimers and the one thing DW had as #1 on her must haves was a W/D. Our first RV was preped for a W/D and the dealer installed one for us. Our new RV also came preped for W/D and again we had the dealer install one. We have had the Splendidi combo both times DW likes the load and forget and is plenty big for a couple.

RE: Rock Crusher Canyon RV Resort

Manatees, several good resturants prices vary. Fishing. We didn't spend the winter but did spend 6 weeks in both the spring and fall. DW likes it more relaxed than other parts of Florida.

RE: Winterization Drain Valve Residential Fridge Itasca Ellipse

Just go with the instructions unless you are sure of what you are doing. I would blow out the lines but I am not you. You will most likely flush all the lines in the spring anway. If unsure your dealer will be more than willing to winterize for you $$$. Truth is I am never anywhere where winterizing is necessary.

RE: Exterior Trimark RV Lock failure

Try locks and more dot com. I replaces my trimark after it desinagrated. lucky had a window open and could gain access to the trailer I could lock the deadbolt from inside and lock it as well we were in a safe place so no problem waiting for a delivery for new lock.

RE: F250 payload capacity and hitch weight

I suggest you go to a big box lumber yard. purchase 2500 pounds of sand in nice fifty pound bags, load your F250 up drive around for a week with it. If at the end of the week you feel comfortable with it then your good to go with the new 5th wheel. Don't forget to keep your receipt unless you need 2500#'s of sand.

RE: Nitro fill tires on fifth wheel

Good tires, good rims, good tire valves. 35,000 miles and could count on my fingers how many times I've had to add air. This on 13 year old 5th wheel. Yes it was the same tire on the heavy side and never more than 5#'s.

RE: 30 Amp Plug

We find the 30amp recepticals in most parks are in very poor condition and though we are 50amp we will take a 30 amp to save $$ for an overnight. We only have one AC so 30 will work unless DW wants to do wash which is not normal while traveling. There is a 30amp female to 50amp male that is available from marinco a 3050ARV adaptor. That will help if 50amp is available not much if you only visit 30amp parks.

RE: Warning light black water

Stuff stuck to the sensors in the black tank. In our last trailer I could dump, run the tank flush and the sensor read F and E, how could that be? Guess only the top of the tank was full and the bottom 2/3 was empty.
