RE: Need some battery advice!

That's the problem with 12V batteries in parallel - a bad cell in one battery will drag the good battery down. I'd have them both load tested.

RE: Ny state parks after season close

My guess is that the parks have a locked gate on the campground access roads.

RE: 24BH vs 28BH

So can your PAYLOAD capacity handle the extra weight. Look for the payload on the sticker on the drivers side door jamb. What configuration is your F150? Year, engine, rear end ratio, tow package or not, cab style?

RE: Telecom towers and their power

Working for a telco, I can state that not all cell towers have backup. Side note - we had a localized power outage so I had my house running on my Honda 2000 generator. I know for a fact the Central Office my land line is out of has both generator and battery backup. So my dsl worked and we were watching Netflix, drinking wine, and reading the neighborhood FB page about how everybody was burning their cellular data minutes since the cable tv & internet were out.

RE: My Shopping TT Check List. Anything Else?

Our last trailer had spread axles and I hated them. Too much tire scuffing on tight turns. I wouldn't sweat solar ready. And tank size only matters if you plan to dry camp.

RE: Anyone buy from Rv one in Albany NY

No, but if I were closer I'd have to give Alpin Haus a shot at selling me a trailer. They bailed me out on an emergency pit stop a few years back.

RE: grease in brakes on trailer axle, new shoes?

The "correct" answer is to replace the shoes. But when we were younger and didn't have a lot of money for car repairs and had a rear axle seal leak we'd take take the brake shoes and boil them in a water & soap mix. Just sayin'

RE: ? About emptying camper tanks into external holding tank

You could get another 7-pin plug and wire it to tap off the 12V charge line.

RE: Charging TT Battery with Honda 2000 Watt Generator

One thing about the WFCO converters found in most trailers - they make lousy battery chargers for quick charging off a generator. Best bet is to get a deck-mounted IOTA or PD converter. My IOTA-55 is mounted in the pass-through and connected to the battery with welding cable. The AC side of the factory WFCO is disconnected but it's my backup converter if the IOTA dies.

RE: ? About emptying camper tanks into external holding tank

I use a Flojet macerator pump, my holding tank is a 30-gallon barrel mounted in the truck bed. It has a garden hose fitting & vent for filling and an 1-1/2" dump valve & hose for emptying.

RE: Generator and Microwave

My Honda 2000i ran the microwaves in the 3 trailers we've had.

RE: Towing vehicle

My 4X4 F150 can be towed 4-down if you unlock the transfer case first.

RE: Senior pass

Ordered one for my wife 3 weeks ago, still waiting for it.

RE: Any roofers here ?

Cost will also depend if the roofers re-shingle over the old roof or do a complete tear-off first.

RE: Internet goes down

Got Frontier Fios in Plant City fl with no problems. It's in limited areas only though. We're trying to get Green Light to put fiber in our neighborhood.

RE: Air conditioning dripping

I park a bit nose high so the drips run off at the rear.

RE: Any canoe, kayak or SUP paddlers here ?

Our first "RV" was a 17' Kevlar lightweight canoe we'd go tripping in for several days at a time. For rougher water we have a 16' Royalex one. I haul one or the other on a pair of bed-mounted racks.

RE: Which Brand Light Weight TT to buy?

Take a look at Grand Design trailers. And check the Grand Design and Grand Design Imagine Facebook pages. Yes, people post their problems but nobody has better customer service after the sale.
