RE: Generator Help - need to buy in next week...

The portable generator of choice is either Honda or Yamaha, due to their reliability and quietness.

Overflow hoses??

Have a 2005 Jayco 305 BHS. When filling up the fresh water tank, instead of the water coming out through the little vent at the filler cap....it begins to drip out of two hoses which stick out from the underbelly. Is this normal? I have always expected the excess water to come out through the vent situated near the fill cap.

RE: Better quality 7-pole RV connector?

Wow....never had any issues with Pollack. I shoot a bit of silicon around the white bit and make sure the connecter is sprayed with wd40 or something like that and is placed facing down when not in use.

RE: Champion on sale

Buying a Champion as a back-up for a Yammy! LOL! Now I've seen and heard everything! At that price you might as well buy another back-up for the back-up.I did. the yammy won't pull the load at high altitudes it kills it,10,000 ft plus.(coffee Pot, tv,dvd player, ect. ) even with the high altitude jets installed. the champ runs all that's needed and runs fine. glad to have them both, no complaints while running the champ. most want to know where i got it!!!!:B 10,000ft is almost camping in the stratosphere! That is somewhat extreme, good that your Champion made it thru. I have a Honda 6500 that purrs all day long, but normally my Yammy can cope with a lot of stuff I throw at it.

RE: Rear View Safety Backup Camera System Questions

Let us know how it works for you please. We are still looking to find camera for the back of our TT 30'. We pull the boat behind TT and need a new camera. Is your TT fiberglass? We purchased our system thru costco.ca. They sell RVS systems too. A great price. We pulled a boat behind our TT. They are a great system. Been using ours for 4 years now.

RE: Rear View Safety Backup Camera System Questions

I agree with Skip, if the camera is on and you are paying attention to what is behind you who is watching the road in front. Having the camera and monitor would be no different than installing a tv on the dash, it is a distraction. Have you used one to be able to qualify your statement? It all depends on your driving discipline...and I'm sure, you, like the rest of us are a seasoned rver. It all depends on your comfort zone.

RE: Rear View Safety Backup Camera System Questions

My personal opinion is that it's pretty dangerous to drive down the highway and worrying about what's going on behind you. That's what mirrors are for and everyone can learn to use them almost automatically without diverting attention to the road ahead. Good luck / Skip I guess it all comes down to practice. I have absolutely no issues having the display on when driving as it acts as my rear view mirror.We used to triple tow with our TT, you can leagally do this in my area of the woods. Its sure nice to keep an eye on that boat trailer at the back when going down the road.

RE: Yamaha Generator, spark arrester AND muffler?

The screen is there to capture glowing carbon grains/granules that get blown out while the engine runs under a sustained load. Removing it and the internal screen cone arrestor will do no harm, other than setting the woods/grass/building on fire if you're running it in an area with downstream "combustibles". It actually sounds pretty good without them, but that's usually not desirable coming from any generator.

RE: Propane Contamination

HD5 is the most purest form of propane. If you got HD10 then it for sure gummed up your lines. You could easily have purged them with ethanol but done is done. Now you know the next time make sure its HD5.
