RE: battery charging

Don't forget to have you cut-off switched to on for the TV to charge your trailer batteries.

RE: Sold Class A for a 5'ver

I should also say we stayed in 10 degree weather for almost two weeks over Christmas with no problems and have been in the desert a lot with sufficient cooling, but if you like it really cold then one AC might not be enough, we find it OK.

RE: Sold Class A for a 5'ver

Lee, you can't get to the fridg when all closed up, but all we do is open one side or the other about a foot when we need to get to it. But I have a nice box in the back of the truck for the easy things. I have not had any major issues that I couldn't handle myself. I did replace the converter but that was not really Keystone, I dealt right with the manufacture and was very happy.

RE: Cougar Cap Fading..

Mine was repainted, it was fading before I even bought it. They agreed to paint it as part of the deal. It is a 2013

RE: Sold Class A for a 5'ver

I started this thread last September 2013. I've put 8000 miles on my fiver now and so much enjoying it along with the reduced cost of the MH I had. I don't worry about what may go wrong anymore as I can probably fix it if it does. It's all about peace of mind, and we have that now. Just wanted to come back and give my feelings as to date. We are happy.

RE: 5th wheel lengths (model# vs reality)

When it comes to measuring height, can I add, without a lot of slamming, measure when it is light (unloaded) and on the TV. You figure out why. I read, (not all posts) most posts, and in talking about measuring height, no one really said when loaded on the TV.

RE: VRLA Battery question

I purchased a new Yamaha generator and it was shipped to me. It came with a VRLA Battery. The battery was shipped dry with the electrolyte solution shipped separately. I put the solution in the battery and sealed it, no problem. Glenn I'm a bit confused, you say you filled the VRLA battery, but they are already sealed?? Are you sure you have a VRLA battery?

RE: VRLA Battery question

It's not a large battery by no means, should not even take that long

RE: Traded our Motorhome and Picking Up New Fifth Wheel Tomorrow

I would worry about broken welds that may be hidden, depending on what they really did of course. Check carefully. So sorry to hear, I know how exciting it is to finally have within your grasp what you so dearly been waiting for.

RE: Internet or not?

We make our truck our "hot spot" and use it for access to the internet and email where ever we are. It's rather new but sure works great.

RE: VRLA Battery question

Doesn't your generator charge once it's started, and isn't there a pull start (although I don't think you will need it) to start the generator? Once you've added the acid, you should be ready to go, just start up the gene and let it do the job.

RE: Installing cut-off switch for batteries

Do like you are thinking but connect the breakaway prior to the switch for safety in case it is towed with the switch open. Yes, I did think of that, but didn't mention it, thanks for doing so.

Installing cut-off switch for batteries

I have a trailer that has a cut off switch, however, it does not cut off everything. While in storage I want everything cut off without removing the battery cables. So, my idea is to insert a cut-off switch in the positive battery cable from the battery to the fuse. I have two 6 volt batteries in series. I want to leave the ground attached, and the jumper from battery one to battery two, opening only the positive line from the second battery. Can I do this without any detrimental effect to either battery? Leaving them hooked up that is.

RE: Headed North in Winter (Eastern Washington)

The other issue is we have not talked about much how you are going to get there and return three weeks later that time of year. We have been snowbirding in Arizona for the last five years. At the Ca/Or boarder are the Siskiyou Mountains. I have been both over and around them depending on weather. I once traveled towing the area on the first day of April on the only day that week that it did not snow up there. So when you go around that time of the year, that means Hiway 101 on the coast, which adds a day or two to our trip to Arizona. 101 requires a lot more work on the drivers part. The best winter route between the coast and I-5 is 38 thru Drain to Reedsport, as it stay at lower elevations. This route bypasses the other humps in Southern Oregon on I-5. Campgrounds between Santa Rosa and Eureka during the winter can be a challenge. If it is a mild winter in Central Oregon then coming up I-5 and taking 97 to Klamath Falls and up thru Bend is the shortest route. Here is a great site to get to know. Tripcheck Also Central Oregon on 97 way be campground challenged. I do not mess with the Siskiyou's, if there is a chance of snow I go around! This is a very heavily traveled trucking route, and becomes a really big mess quickly with lots of wrecks occurring. So ask away on route issues. Chris Thank you for this good to know good link, was actually thinking if I-5 is bad I would go through Salt-lake City, and head up. Think that would be bad?

Yes I agree, but what I've seen is expensive

RE: Headed North in Winter (Eastern Washington)

Yosemitebobr, Others have given you great suggestions and my gut feeling is that you will be fine. However, depending on the temperatures you experience and how well your trailer is designed (and/or modified) for colder weather conditions, your trailer water systems may or may not be. So I would add the suggestion that you may want to have the knowledge and capability to winterize your rig if conditions warrant. Either way, you will lean a lot about cold weather camping. Enjoy the family time. Steve But I really prefer the warm climates, but when your kid moves to the Arctic Circle (ok Washington) :) , in subzero temperatures (ok, 25-29) I must prevail and endure, seriously I have taken all into account and already have started my searches for the appropriate hardware. Just remembers, I need tire chains.

RE: Headed North in Winter (Eastern Washington)

Well since I live here, I can tell you that Decembers have been very unpredictable lately. Typically 40's daytime, high 20's at night. But our low of -5 was in December a couple of years ago. I expect you'll be fine just running your normal heat, watching your water lines, etc. If all else fails, move into my shed. :) Thanks, I may need it :), better yet, can I put the trailer in your shed and I'll sleep outside :)
