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.

Did you remind them that it needed to be winterized prior to dropping it off?

RE: Best time to buy a premium USED fifth wheel?

Bought ours after the last long week-end in September. Dealer was itching to move it before the snow flew.....so we made a crackerjack deal on it! Our fist trailer we bought in the middle of winter. As the snow started piling up in the RV dealers lot....the price started to come down. Funny!

RE: What did you do to your Class C MH today???

Hi, The extra fridge fans cut in!!! Spring has finally arrived. Flurries and colder for the weekend! Minus 8 overnight! Yikes!

RE: What did you do to your Class C MH today???

Got a socket to fit the water heater drain. Cranked the plug all the way in. Now it is leaking worse than ever *sigh*. Time to find the teflon tape I guess. Don.....Teflon paste is far more superior than tape.....however a combination of both may help with those really stubborn leaks.

RE: Mounting your Generator

Hi, I'd far rather see you add a rack at the back. This can be done by adding a trailer hitch. The racks are about $100. We had this arrangement on our old TT. Just yesterday I welded a receiver hitch on the back of my FW to be able to do the same. Far safer than running a generator in a front compartment!

RE: Banff

Two-Jack is the best for non-serviced camping. Camped there many times over the past 10 years. Nice and quiet!

RE: Sad news from Nashville KOA-two dead from carbon monoxide.

Not only be careful....but be pro-active too! If you dont have a carbon monoxide detector get one. If you have one...make sure it works or replace it.

RE: Get well soon!

Good news Don....now go see your GP and get some ongoing care.

Get well soon!

My dear friend Pianotuna is currently in hospital after a suspected stroke a few days ago. I spoke to him today and he is in good spirits and awaiting further tests and results. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
