RE: First all-alluminum travel trailers

80's probably. 90's for sure.

RE: Scan Gauge 2 Support

It will only work if the ECM/TCM is programed to report it. The chassis builder decides what functions can be read via OBDII. Nothing can change that!

RE: Electric Fireplace or AC/Heat pump

Two grand, 600 or 30 dollars. The choice is yours. Personally I go for the 30 dollar option. Same 1500 watt electric heater as the 600 dollar option. Had heat pump in last house. One of the costliest mistakes I've made in my life.

RE: Furnace Gas Usage

30-35K btu furnace consumes about a 1/2 gallon of propane per hour. So in real practicle terms 5 gallons of propane only lasts about 10 running hours. Yes, they burn a lot of gas. Turn the furnace off when your gone and down to 55-60 at night.

RE: Portable ice maker

Love them. Ours sits our side on a folding table or on top of the outside refer. Makes plenty of ice to keep the cooler full. Remember it is not a freezer. The ice is soft so to be really useful it needs to be hardened in a freezer for a day or so to be really useful.

RE: What type of pickup truck do i need?

Suburban 2500, Excursion or any of the 2500 series gas motor trucks will get you down the road in PA pulling a 25-26 foot trailer just fine. Cab configuration is based on your needs. Kids, dogs etc will dictate what cab is best for you. 4X4 or 4X2? It just does not matter unless you plan to go off pavement. Then it might mattet somewhat. Like others have mentioned, pick the exact trailer first, then match a truck to the trailers GVWR. Upsize the truck some if your thoughts point toward a larger trailer in the foreseeable future.

If you have an unlimited data plan, why do you need foxfi?

RE: tire wear

Air pressure and road crown play a big part. Add the fact that the outside duals get more abuse from road debris, stones, etc and it is pretty plain.

RE: Confused about towing weight

The only issue I see is the tongue weight. Put some air bags on the rear and enjoy your unit. Or as little as 1400 pounds. Had a similar 2004 truck. Besides the classic overheating I was at least over the trucks GVWR. Never was a good towing truck for a fiver. IMHO pass.

They both feed the same lines from different sources. The pump has to have a check valve to prevent just whst your experiencing. Believe us, the check valve is stuck, you have the pump in backwords or the check valve is missing.

RE: first post help

No! Plane and simple you will probably not like it.

RE: Advice needed on small towable truck

Could be, but depending on the weight of your bike,might not be suitable. Most small trucks are lucky to carry 500 pounds in the bed.

Sounds like the check valve on the new pump is stuck open. Take it back out take it apart and fix it.

RE: Stainless Steel tabletop gas grill

Had one similar from CW. It was horrible. Quit in less than a month. Total junk. Take it back get a Weber Q series. You won't regret it one bit

RE: Humidity / Moisture Absorbers; Do They Work?

There are small electric dehimidifiers on the market. We used two last winter. Had to empty them every day or two. Worked OK. But I prefer my big one running 24/7 the trailer is nice and dry when ever we want to go.

RE: Difficult to find RV Bed Sheets

Standard king sheets. Either tuck the excess in, create new pockets, or buy a pair of suspenders to hold it in place. All easy and inexpensive fixes.

RE: Tires

Good but on the high end cost wise. There are lots of good choices starting with Commercial TA, thru Firestone Transforce to Michelin. Let google be your friend. Web sites like Discount tire and Tire Rack can be very informative and have customer reviews. Read them and then decide what is best for the money in your mind. You might also look at Hankook tires. They constantly get good reviews and offer attractive prices.

RE: Advice for Newbie

Start used. Keep the price down to bare minimum. It is a lot easier to sell a used trailer loosing maybe a few hundred dollars in the process than trying to sell a nearly new one loosing thousands of dollars if your desires change. Which they likely will judging buy the quantity of decent uses ones on the market.
