RE: Do you cross your safety chains?

I have the same problem like Ozlander. I can NOT cross my chains on my T.T. Now does that means that I am going to get a ticket because they are not crossed?

RE: propane problem

I had the same problem with my 2010 Salem. Have you tried shutting the gas tanks off, and then open it very slow. That was my problem. Ever since I take it very easy when opening my gas tanks. No more problems. ( I was opening the gas tanks too fast ) Good luck.

ski-light above shower..

Hello - I replaced my ski-light last year do to a tree branch falling on it. I did everything according to the ( Book ). This year I notice that I have condensation between the ski-light dome. ( No sign of moisture on the plastic glass at the bottom of the inner section.Is it possible that I need to change the seal if there is one in the inner cover that its located in the inside of the camper above the shower?:h Thank you to all...

RE: Indian cave national park NE

Is it a state park? If so, here is some info on Tripadvisor. If I remember correctly that park was closed a few years ago due to flooding of the Missouri River. It maybe reopened but with the rains we have been experiencing in Missouri, I'd check to see if they are open before heading out or making a reservation. Sorry Iraqyet05, yes, it is a state park thank you for your input on the flood.

Oppose slides

Good morning folks --- Quick question I have a 2014 T.T. Minnie Winnie with oppose slides. ( I hope I am spelling this right ) anyway I read the manual and it does not says anything about taking one slide out at the time. Can I take both side out at the same time? ( Which I have done a couple of times ) Will I do damage to the slides by doing this?:E Thank you for any advise. Kennedy >>>

RE: New travel trailer for my daughter..

I will really appreciate any input form you folks. Start with their tow vehicle details ... kinda pointless for others to make suggestions when they have no idea as to what their TV is capable of towing. :@The OP asked for suggestions on what would sleep 9, is a senior member, and been on this forum for over 3 years. Why do you want to think no one knows what they are doing? Seems to me it is pointless to post something that doesn't answer the question that was asked. Maybe once the find a trailer they like that sleeps 9 they'll figure out what they need for a tow vehicle. That's the way I would do it. Um, Senior Member is just based on number of posts. It doesn't indicate any level of expertise. In fact, the OP seems quite comfortable asking for input on a variety of subjects. So I'm with Sound Guy on believing it is smart to get info about the daughter's TV before making TT suggestions. With 9 people to transport, even a 350 series full sized van is likely to run out of payload capacity. BubbaChris - You are totally right. Senior Member is based on # of post. And yes, I do not know it all. That is why I am asking the good folks in this forum for advise because I am not an expert.

RE: New travel trailer for my daughter..

There are at least 20 brands offering a variation of this floorplan that could work: http://www.primetimerv.com/ImageHandler.ashx?ImageID=15306 width=640 What does your daughter plan to tow this RV with? I believe she called the dealer to find out what was her towing limit? She has a 12 passenger Chevy van I don't recall the size of the engine. But the dealer told her that the van it's rated at 10,000 lbs for towing.

New travel trailer for my daughter..

Top of the morning all- My daughter and husband are looking at buying a travel trailer with bunks for their 7 kids. Does anyone knows what brand name light T.T. that sleeps 9? Her husband likes the Jayco brand. She does NOT care for Jayco,she thinks the interior colors are dark and it is depressing. I will really appreciate any input form you folks. Thank you in advance..:R

RE: Here we go again!! >>

If I read correctly earlier that you had a white wire to the positive on the battery. You absolutely need to investigate that first before you do anything else. White wires are usually ground and the breaker or fuses will trip with a direct short like that. Grab each wire in your hand and trace it from the battery to see where it goes. If it goes to the frame it's a ground wire and belongs on the negative battery post. If it goes int the trailer or into a box or circuit breaker it's a positive wire. If you were mi-swired, fix that connection first. Then check the green 40amp reverse polarity fuses in the breaker panel. The easiest way to check the circuit breaker pictured above is with a multi-meter. Check from each post to a good ground. You should have battery voltage at both posts. If no meter try something low tech. Turn on a 12v accessory like a ceiling or the porch light. Then hook the two posts together somehow. (clamp from jumper cables, screwdriver blade across terminals etc.) and see if the light comes on. opnspaces- Since I did not had a meter, I tried the low tech method. And it worked. I was able to find out that the 30amp fuse that is located on the frame was bad. So I went to my local RV center. And bought it for $7.95 including tax. I again would like to thank every member of this wonderful forum for your input and helping me solve this issue I actually saved $93.00 dollars because that would of have been my deductible to have the dealer fix it.:B Thank you all- Yours truly, Kennedy

RE: Here we go again!! >>

How are you estimating that the battery is fully charged? Westend, I kept the battery on a trickle charger thru out the winter. But I will try to double check everything all over. Assuming your trickle charger is good and that it sounds like you are being involved with the care of your trailer, my best WAG is that the circuit breaker or fuse from the battery to your distribution center is tripped/blown. Best practices dictate that it should be within 18" of the battery but that is often stretched in the RV world so that it can be located on the frame, underneath and behind the tongue. The fact that you have no 12V devices working unless connected to shore power indicates the battery is out of the loop and the converter is providing adequate power when powered from the AC cord, as it should. The battery should also be receiving a charge when connected to shore power. Do you have a hand-held meter? No,I guess I better buy a hand held meter... Thank you, I will keep you folks up to date on this issue...

RE: Here we go again!! >>

I had a similar issue with my TT last year. Turns out this little "breaker" was bad. When it tripped, it cut off the battery supply. Changed battery, checked all inside breakers and finally called a pro. He found this little bugger behind the battery mounted under the TT on the mail steel beam. Replaced ($10) and it was back to normal. http://i.imgur.com/w5npSE7l.jpg Rthomas61- I have 2 of those on the steel frame. How do I know which one I should replace? Thank you, Respectfully Kennedy.

RE: Here we go again!! >>

Why did you REMOVE the battery in the first place..:h There may be an in line fuse a short distance from the battery. Look for a 10/12 ga wire on the positive post then trace it away from the battery. It should be within 12-24" of the battery. Your trailer is designed to be self sufficient. Everything should work without external power....Dennis Executive- I had to remove it so I could store it the my basement for winter..

RE: Here we go again!! >>

Possibilities; 1. Bad battery 2. Poor battery connection 3. Improper battery connection 4. Blown fuses (see #3) 5. Battery disconnect switch is engaged Ok I will check the fuse..
