RE: Tell me about Cape Cod

The General Store & ice creme shop down the street in Brewster. Maybe the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History - walk down to the beach. +1 for Arnolds, we bike there on the Rail Trail. Yes, Coast Guard beach & skip P-town. 36 hours doesn't scratch the surface on what's there & things to do.

RE: RV Share - Feedback/Thoughts

I won't loan mine to family or friends, why would I let a stranger use it?

RE: water heater?

When dry camping I turn it off, it goes back on 20 minutes before I want it. With hookups I run it full time on electric but will switch it to gas & electric if DW & I take back to back showers.

RE: Ebay LEDs - inconsistent color and brightness (and smoke!)

Hmmm.... I converted to LED's from Ebay seller 2011_LED, no problems after 3 years so far.

RE: Electric stabs questions

I lower them until they both touch the ground then hold the button until I see the trailer/frame slightly start to move. I'll often 'reset' them again after the slides are put out and we've been in the trailer for a night. This. Personally, I find I don't like the Lippert electric stabs. The next TT will have manual jacks.

RE: Black tank question

I used to use 25' of sewer hose to reach the sewer cleanout on my yard, but it's easier to use my macerator pump. Issue - I don't believe the macerator pump lets through a good enough rush of water to empty the black tank of solids. I put a "Y" in the house hose line I use for the tank rinser, and use both the in-tank rinser and a toilet wand to clean the black tank. "Clean" is when the black tank sensor reads EMPTY.

RE: Black tank deodorizers

You can try one of the commercial additives, or Google "Geo Method."

RE: Help I'm new to campers

Where's the green stuff coming from - the controller board, or somewhere in the plumbing?

RE: Water Transfer Pump for my Cooler

Some campers use a manual boat / kayak bilge pump to transfer water. And I too use a Wayne 12V pump to transfer water to my on-board tank.

RE: Air in water line - how to access tank/hose?

Do you have a winterizing valve? Is it fully in the "tank" position and not drawing air from the winterizing hose?

RE: Help - I don't want to kill my truck with my trailer...

Tow in 3rd? No, that's a six-speed transmission. Besides adding the tranny cooler, do you have a tow / haul button?

RE: Water tank issue

2" of water on the bathroom floor, or was it in the tub / shower pan? No, the gray tank should not fill up if you're not using a faucet or shower. Many people turn the city water off before leaving for the day. It can prevent a surprise flood if a pipe leaks. Ditto if you're using the on-board water pump - turn it off.

RE: Can we stop....

I've been known to dig in to lower the high side. But I always fill it back in when I leave.

RE: Using 4wd to slow down

Unless the truck has AWD (center differential) you'll eventually wind-up the drivetrain and start to hear a lot of grinding and popping sounds. All 4WD manufacturers caution against using 4WD on dry pavement.

RE: Electric Brakes

No, the brakes are NOT wired in series.

RE: F150 Towing mirror add-ons?

I had McKesh mirrors on my Envoy but didn't like the way they fit on the F150. I'm satisfied with the Cipa's I'm using now.

RE: Which books and/or apps for trip planning?

I don't own a dumb phone let alone a smart one........ Good Sam's trip planner has alerted me to low bridges & propane restrictions that Mapquest didn't.

RE: What do you do when?

I lock the camper when we leave. OK, I know it only keeps the honest people honest and it'll add to the expense if it gets broken into but I figure it'll be less hassle with the insurance company if it was locked.
