RE: Overflow hoses??

I have an Alpenlite with one 100 gallon water tank and it has two over flow hoses.

RE: Gray Water Filter

I boon dock almost all year long in different dispersed areas and always dump the grey water in different areas around the trailer and what I do is tie or tape an old sock around the end of the hose and the sock will catche any solids and being that the sock is biodegradable it can be buried afterwards.

RE: AMAZON updates! LOOK here a new TN location & other updates

I not really sure what ATO is and right now I have a winter job lined up, but when I take a job, I'm looking to make money not take time off. But it is nice to see Amazon is expanding their Camperforce locations and benefits.

RE: Need new remote water pump/ will this work?

What I used was 75 feet of #12 copper wire and I fused it for 10 amps. Was there alittle voltage drop? Probably, but not enough to worry about and it still works good after 20 years.

RE: removing stuck duel wheels

SGJJKing, I've always used a piece of wood and a three pound hammer, and it works great, but if spending hundreds of dollars to do the same thing makes you happy, then go for it. After trying to read the opening post, it appears the writer may have been educated beyond his intelligence.

RE: Need new remote water pump/ will this work?

Instead of dragging a battery around why not use some 12volt wire with alligator clips on it and hook it up to your trailer battery or truck battery.

RE: Yuma boondocking

Yuma in the summer time is a good place to be from, if you catch my drift.

RE: Washing /waxing

Just had my wife wash and wax the 5er with Mcquires cleaner wax 50 and it only took her two days to do the job. She is getting older and slowing down some but it is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of trailer maintenance as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are overly sensitive, and there’s nothing worse than an oversensitive woman. She had to take a break when she was only half-finished washing and waxing the 5th Wheel. I tried not to make a scene. I’m a fair man. I tell her to fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while. And, as long as she is making one for herself, she may as well make one for me, too. I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support her. I’m not saying that showing this much consideration is easy. Many men will find it difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows better than I do how frustrating women get as they get older. However, guys, even if you just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging girlfriend or wife because of this post, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile.

RE: pump fresh water into toy hauler tank

I boondock most of the year and carry a spare 12 volt rv water pump with me. Put a pair of garden hose adapters on it and about 20' of #10 wire with alligator clips on the end and it makes a wonderful transfer pump.

RE: AHHH! Dropped my water tank!

When I cut into my underbelly, I repaired it by punching some small holes down the cut line on each side of the cut every 3 or 4 inches then tying then together with zip ties along the cut. After trimming the ties I sealed the cut with silicon.

RE: Interior space heating improvements

Wave Catalytic Heaters. I use one in my 5r and it works great. No carbon monoxide to deal with. ICamel, you appear to have been educated beyond your intelligence.

RE: Repair completed....wrong repair.

Yep, Taking a truck to a tire shop for engine work! It appears that you may have been educated beyond your intelligence.

RE: Is my MPPT solar controller possibly malfunctioning?

Have you checked the fuse or circuit breaker between the solar panels and the charge controller, if they are blown or open, that would not let any power to the controller, and it would think it was still night. Or it could be a bad connection at the combiner box.

RE: Waxing the TH

After checking the prices for someone to wax my trailer here in Arizona, I just had my wife wash and wax the Toyhauler with Mcquires cleaner wax 50 and it only took her two days to do the job. She is getting older and slowing down some but it is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of trailer maintenance as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are overly sensitive, and there’s nothing worse than an oversensitive woman.

RE: Ready to jump into solar!!

Here is another Solar site to visit and it has some info to keep in mind when setting up your solar setup.

RE: Cord re-wiring

http://hhrvresource.com/Images/7-RoundPlug.jpg height=400 This looks like a Commercial Truck Plug-see the round pins. There are no RV Trailers with a #2--ICC Marker. I have always used the Bargeman Style.

RE: Solar panel System

Ah yes, I remember the early days of my Solar Quest and trying to find good info about Solar basics, such a fun time. Look and research the sites others have listed above, beware the cheapest "kits" and another site to visit would be Handy Bob's Solar. Solar Power is a great thing to have when it is put together correctly. I boondock almost 11 months a year and rarely start the generator. Have a fun time and enjoy your Solar System.
