RE: Use home sewer cleanout as dump station?

Do it with a macerator pump, then it will just look like a garden hose going in, and will draw little notice from anyone....

RE: Tire Pressure Monitoring System

I've got an 8 year old Pressure Pro system, and it's time to replace the batteries (at $30 each!). Given the improvements in technology over the last 8 years, and TST now having a user replaceable batter, PLUS flow through tire filling, I may have to reevaluate replacing my old sensors vs updating my system....

RE: Vent Covers?

I originally installed MaxAir II's on my vents, bit the two that have fans in them on my trailer have FanTastic fans. The MaxAir covers wouldn't open far enough for the FanTastic fans to operate, as they have a plunger switch on hem to ensue that the vent is open when the fan is running. I changed out the two with the fans for the FanTastic covers, As for which is "better", I FAR PREFER the mounting method of the FanTastic! If I had realized this at first, I NEVER would have bought the MaxAir's.....

RE: Looking at my first diesel

There's lots of brand loyalty on this board and many strong opinions surrounding the brand/year you are asking about. . Now THERE is the understatement of the month!!! As a proud RAM/Cummins owner, I'd tell you that Ford found the only problem with that vehicle, and that they even drew an oval around it, and highlighted it in blue for you! ;) Seriously, you are on the right research path, and seem to be getting good info. Find out what the vehicle was used for. There are list of good deals on high mileage diesels that are only high mileage because they were run up and down the interstates. There are also some "good deals" on low mileage diesels, but the owner is getting rid of it because he got 5 or 6 good years of snow plowing out of it...... See the difference? What it was used for in its previous life would be an important decider for me.... ON EDIT: I just realized that the 172,000 is KM, and not miles! That pup is barely broken in! Have they used a synthetic oil? Some places will get you an oil sample analysis that may give you any signs of potential problems, but at 100,000 miles, a diesel is still "new". Even if it IS a Ford.... ::B

RE: Will solar panel keep batteries charged while running fridge

If you are running the fridge on LP, then a 55w panel and decent sun should be more than enough to keep the control circuitry running.... Now, of you were trying to run on electric, you would need a MUCH larger system, and a big battery bank to get you through the night....

RE: Moving to New York from PA

Expensive, but really not that difficult! Here's a tip, though..... Many County Clerk's offices are satellite NYS DMV Offices. Not sure whe you are moving to, but I've found overall that the Conty Clerk's DMV Offices are MUCH more friendly and efficient than the local State DMV Office. (And I'm sorry to say that I'm a state employee telling you this..")

It's doing it on RV.net. I switched to Good Sam club link, and no problems.

RE: Water Pump confusion - Can somebody clarify?

Your pump only pulls from the tank. The line between the pump and the city connection is empty (there is a back flow protector that prevents the city water from back pressuring the pump, and into the tank. If you throw about a gallon of water into the tank, it should be enough to fill the pump and that line, then once filled, the pump should shut off. Not a bad way to test your pump,

Novel use of an old RV

Saw this video on a woodworking forum that I'm on, and thought that fellow RV'ers might enjoy seeing a great use of an old RV. Enjoy!

RE: Do you think these are legit?

Check out Geno's Garage for good quality decently priced RAM / Cummins stuff....

RE: Sunset on Seneca Campground

Never camped there. We have camped several times at Sampson State Park of the east side of the lake. Don't know that I would "vacation" there, but it was a great base-camp for touring the wineries, the NA$CAR race at The Glen, and other site-seeing opportunities. Basic electrical hook-up's, no sewer at sites, but well designed dump station. Water spigots throughout CG, usually no more than a few hose-lengths away. CG bath & shower facilities well maintained.

RE: Adding an inverter off the Distribution block

I've got my 2000w inverter mounted about so that I need 4' of #0 (2/0) cable to get to my battery bank. The only way that I could have gone with shorter cables is to put the inverter in the same compartment as the batteries, which runs contrary to all safety recommendations.

RE: '14 to '16 Ram Crewcab 2500 diesel towing which 5th wheels

A question for fire instructor, I also looked at the rig you are getting to handle your 5er. A lot less expense than a new truck. Please let us know how you like the set up and how it works for you. I plan on writing a detailed review, after I get it, and use it a few times.

RE: Water

Sounds like an open tank drain.... unless the tank is already full, and it's an overflow....

RE: Ok I found something new.

GPS or satellite radio antenna? Does your unit have Serius or XM radio?

RE: buying a new, but damaged trailer

Tell them that you want a 12mo. factory warranty off the lot, AND a discount due to their collision..... If they will deal, and you can live with the oops, it'll all be good!

RE: Solar Panels

Next time under trees cover the panels. Why? You always get SOME sunlight, so my panels and controller never "sleep" all day.....

RE: Solar Panels

That's what I do, but only first thing in the morning, or as the sun is going down.... Not sure what spraying them in full sun might do.... Though once, I went to the roof with a sponge mop, during a rain storm.... My neighbor thought I was nuts! (Trailer was in my driveway.)
