RE: Sway bars?

$1000 is really steep. I picked up a reese 1000 lb weight dist. hitch setup with anti-sway included for $250 in Edmonton couple of months ago.

RE: I nearly killed the other camp sites kid Screwin' with..

It's not just kids but adults as well sadly. Recent camping trip we had a group of about a half dozen adults repeatedly walking through our campsite to get to a trail (one of many) that led down to the lake the boats were tied up. Now this is a heavily treed campground with very private campsites so you really need to go out of your way to invade someones privacy. And there were many ways down to the water including a paved road that would have added about 50 yards to their walk. After a couple times watching them step over and around our stuff as they walked right under my awning I finally asked them politely to take one of the many paths that did not go through our site. Ended up feeling like a jerk for doing so, but I would never think to invade someones privacy like that.

RE: working on camper

You can buy the door wall section as a unit from forest river that would fit into the existing door. I think its only a few hundred dollars, might save some time to go that route.

RE: Inverter question

Sure, you can just plug the shore-power line into your inverter and power all your existing outlets. BUT make sure you turn off the breakers for everything but your outlet circuits... - converter breaker off - fridge AC power breaker off - air conditioning breaker off - microwave breaker off

RE: boondocking, need help asap....

Haven't read the whole thread, but I think OP problem is the 55watt panel is just too small to put enough current into the batteries in one day. Max output of that panel might amount to about 30 amp hours at the absolute most in perfect conditions. If he's watching voltage the batteries may appear charged but once the surface charge dissipates or he applies a slight load he'll get an accurate reading. I'm guessing his battery bank is rarely fully charged with that setup. I've got a 230watt panel and mppt controller and in bad conditions I can see 14.6 volts at the batteries, but only a couple amps current output from the charger. Voltage is a bad indicator of soc in this scenario.

RE: Top ten RV improvements

Nice, lots of ideas here. For me in no particular order Foam mattress toppers 230 watt solar charging system 1000 watt inverter with remote Battery and solar charging monitor Replace all bulbs with LEDs Additional battery capacity Tongue mounted diamond plate toolbox/battery box Fold down countertop extension Updated bbq with rear bumper swing arm mount Plexiglass shower rails to keep water from spilling out Added couple of 12v outlets as the trailer had none as delivered :( All I'm missing is vented catalytic heater so I can ditch the power wasting furnace. Maybe soon :)
