RE: Wheel Weights

Having worked in a tire shop, we had multiple styles of weights and a chart on what manufacturer used what weight. There was only one style for steel wheels.

RE: Family Camping Resorts NY/NJ/CT/PA?

We stayed at Odetah in CT a few years back. It was just the 2 of us but they had a lot of activities.

RE: Larger gray tank capacity trailers

On the whole Grand Design owners are a pretty loyal bunch. Check out the GD and GD Imagine owners Facebook pages, both are very active. There are 2 tricks I've found to get maximum usage out of the fresh water tank: Cap off the tank overflow under the trailer, and modify the tank pickup to pull off the drain line.

RE: best chainsaws

My $.02 - either the Stihl or Husky. Personally, I have a Shindaiwa 488 fitted with a fully adjustable carb and Carlton chain. Yes, get yourself a filing jig and learn how to use it along with a spare chain (or 2). My chain gets a pass or 2 with a file on each tank of gas. Speaking of gas, I run ethanol-free E0 in all my small engines. For files I like Pferd or Save Edge since they last longer than Oregons.

RE: Grand Design Imagine 2850RL

For anyone looking at a Grand Design, there are several Facebook pages worth checking out. Grand Design Owners and Grand Design Imagine owners are two, I think the Reflection and Solitude have their own pages also. BTW - we really like our Grand Design. Nobody, bar none, has better customer service after the sale should you need it.

RE: Heartland North Trail vs. Dutchmen Kodiak

Our previous trailer was a North Trail. It was OK, no major issues, but we like our Grand Design so much more.

RE: Newbie refrigerator question.

What model fridge? Norcold N611V?

RE: Sunday Dump Day?

I use a macerator pump & dump down the sewer cleanout in my front yard.

RE: Can I modify my Norcold

N611V w/o the adjustable controller board? You can unplug the 110AC from the outside, or get Norcold's adjustable replacement "optical controller board." I got mine under warranty since the fridge was freezing everything regardless of where I positioned the thermistor.

RE: My spray port is a bit different - how to winterize it?

Once the water heater is bypassed you should still get water at the spray port. I flush RV antifreeze through mine.

RE: Grand Design Imagine 2400 BH Winterizing question

On my Imagine 2650 the winterization hose was wrapped inside the docking station. I had to remove the side panel to get it out and access the winterization valve. I recommend you blow air through the city inlet with the selector valve both in the "city" and "fill" positions. Low point drains are underneath. And don't forget the shower / spray ports.

RE: Stabilizing jacks don't really stabilize much at all

Some electric stabilizers are ganged meaning one switch lowers both rear stabilizers at the same time. If you have these it is critical that they are block sufficiently so that both stabilizers hit your blocks at the same time. If not you may only have ground pressure on one stabilizer. I used to lower the rear stabilizers with the tongue a little low. Then use the tongue jack to bring to level and load the rear stabilizers more. Then firm up the front stabilizers and then firm up the tongue jack a bit. Mine DO have the one-switch for both jacks. However, if one touches first, that one does not bind while the other continues down. When the other touches, the resistance transfers the pressure to both jacks. Knowing how this works tells me I could have another inherent issue. If the jacks "pivot" to allow them both to contact before the pressure reacts to both of them, then they really aren't very stable to begin with. There will always be that pivot point that is not locked in. Bingo! Our previous trailer had Lippert electric stabs and it rocked along the longitudinal centerline since there was no way to lock the pivot point. I used to put a flea-market automotive scissors jack under each side of the frame near the axle, they helped but didn't totally eliminate the rocking.

RE: Warning light black water

Try cleaning the tank with a tank wand. There could be something stuck on the sensors. The blast of water might be enough to knock off anything that may be stuck. I'm a firm believer in a tank wand. Before I knew you could buy one I made my own.

RE: Battery Advice Needed & Charging Questions

How many nights at a time are you planning to dry camp? For 1, maybe 2 nights a single 12V standard battery would do. I'm running 2 Group 29 batteries, an upgraded converter, and a Honda 2000i generator.

I've had a Flojet for a few years and am happy with it. The only issue is that it doesn't like to be run dry.

RE: Tank or tote for use with Macerator

I engineered my own setup for use with my macerator pump. A 30-gallon plastic drum ($10), 1-1/2" dump valve, and 12' of sump pump discharge hose. The drum is strapped in the truck bed resting on blocks so it doesn't roll.

RE: Murphy's Oil Soap - Awesome!

I use it on my roof, and DW says it removes fingerprints from stainless steel appliances.

RE: Identify Roof Sealant

Rumor has it Dicor will wrinkle the Alpha Systems roof. I ordered Alpha Systems caulk from Amazon.
