RE: Sirius XM Radio Install

I use an Onyx connected to the aux input in the TT radio. At the end of the season I have Sirius suspend the service. The only issue is they'll only suspend it for 5 months so I have to call and have the suspension extended. I never asked them about transferring service from DW's car when we're camping.

RE: Upgrade gas shock support for under bed storage

The solution could be as simple as re-positioning the bracket on the bed base to allow more leverage for the existing gas spring. But this will reduce the compressed length of the spring, check carefully that you don't bottom it out.

RE: battery hot

Without voltage reading you're just guessing. What's the battery voltage after it sits a day or 2? It should be 12.7 volts or so. What's the voltage while it's hooked to the converter? Fully charged float voltage should be 13.2 volts (app.)

RE: EZ Pass issues

Axle counting in NY must be an enhancement. Why do you need two different transponders then?

RE: Casita phantom load

With everything off the phantom draws are the propane detector and radio memory in my TT. I put a switch on the radio and the detector draw is 70ma (.07A) IIRR. Yes, you need 14V+ at the battery to get a good charge. I mounted a deck-mount IOTA to the ceiling of the pass-through. 3' cable run to the batteries. The problem with a long wire run to the inadequate WFCO converter was solved.

RE: EZ Pass issues

Most of the NY EZ-Passes are on the windshield. A few years back there were car manufacturers that made an optional heated windshield. They had a gold tint to them and would block the EZ-Pass signal (like the storage bags.) Those drivers had to get bumper or licence plate transponders. Some states count the number of axles. NY does not. Hence I have two EZ-Pass transponders - a white one for solo and a blue one for towing the TT.

RE: Equalizer or Reese Dual Cam

A satisfied DC user here. 10 years and two trailers. The only issue I had was wear on the cams. When I got the new TT I flipped the cams to get a new wear surface and also belt sanded the bar hooks to 90-degrees. And I now lube the cams with a few drops of ATF.

RE: Just a thought.

Our '05 Starcraft hybrid had outside access to the dinette seat.

RE: fuel stabilizer

All my small engines get E0 (non-ethanol) gas. After I drain the tank and run the carb dry, I put some 2-stroke mix in the tank, run it through the carb, then drain the tank and run the carb dry again. The 2-stroke oil 1) has stabilizer in it and 2) I figure it keeps the carb gaskets from drying out. I had to tear down and clean son-in-laws weedwacker carb this spring after he let it sit all winter with E10 in it. Coincidence?

RE: Atwood vs. Suburban Propane Hot Heaters -Pilot Light Models

I may be wrong, but I believe even the pilot-light models require 12V for the gas valve.

RE: Towing capacity help

Two radiators, or a radiator and air conditioning condensed?

RE: Help with my wheel hub please

If it's a Dexter axle: http://dexteraxle.com/e_z_lube_components Looks like you need a cap and plug kit, and maybe a retainer nut kit.

RE: Tow 23Rs With F150 Supercew

Welcome to the forum. Towing capacity is only a small part of the equation. Do you have the Max tow package, or standard tow setup? More important is the payload capacity. How many people are you going to haul in the Supercrew? How much "stuff" in the bed? Now add in the tongue weight of the trailer and the weight of the hitch. 1/2-ton crew cabs can get overloaded fairly quickly.

RE: Towing question

What's the payload on the Tahoe, and how many people are you carrying? Add it all up and I'll wager you'll be over your GVW rating.

RE: Forest Service Campgrounds with electricity

There are several in the Allegheny National Forest in PA. They are all 20A though. Sure about that? IIRR Red Bridge has some FHU 30A sites.
mbopp 09/09/15 05:34pm Public Lands, Boondocking and Dry Camping

Check the axle manufacturer's website. IIRR Dexter specs were 4-1/2" bolt circle, 1/2" studs, 0 offset. Old Ford rims were a 4-1/2" bolt circle, the new ones are probably metric.

RE: Screen door inside latch

Lippert makes one. I ordered it from my dealer and replaced the plain-Jane panel.

RE: Anybody towing a 2000ish Subaru Outback?

Automatic transmission Outbacks can't be towed either 2- or 4-down. IIRR manual trannys are OK. I had an '01 Outback.
