RE: 6v batteries from Costco (or somewhere else)

Batteries + Bulbs had the cheapest price on GC2's with the 10% on-line discount. And the best price on GC2 battery boxes. I called the local store about availability & they said they just got a pallet full of GC2's in, the cases are a special order with 1-week delivery.

RE: Macerator extension cord

10ga is good. If it's a Flojet pump there's a 20A fuse in the switch.

RE: new york

Yes, very low bridges on the Lake Ontario State Parkway. And no commercial vehicles IIRR. Sometimes we'll take 104 & Rt 3 for a change of scenery when going from Rochester to Watertown.

RE: Where to purchase Trojan Batteries?

$100 at the local Interstate dealer, $90 at Batteries + Bulbs for Duracells (10% off online.) And Batteries + Bulbs has the cheapest GC2 boxes I've found.

RE: Payload Ratings are a farce

That 3450# payload is for a gas engine. I've always maintained if you want a Diesel go with a 1-ton since 3/4-ton Diesels don't have much more payload than a 1/2-ton gasser.

RE: Small Fridge Fan?

Our fridge is on a slide and has external cooling fans on it from the factory. I'm told it's because convection cooling doesn't work well on side-vented fridges. It is an added drain when dry camping though.

RE: Gasoline in fresh water tank

I know vinegar takes the gas smell off my hands. And I use 1 qt vinegar in 5 gallons of water to get the chlorine smell out of the water lines after I sanitize them.

RE: Handy apps for iPhone

There is also the level app on the Iphone. It paired with the compass app. It will check side to sida and front to back frig level. I have the level & compass on my Android. And topo maps where you can download an area and have it available off-line. Ditto for state road maps.

RE: Don't just run to the RV dealership....

6 quarts of semi-synthetic & a filter will run me $30. And I have to get the stuff, change the oil, get oil spattered on me & the driveway, dump the oil into a container, and take it for disposal. For $10 more the Ford dealer changes my oil, tops off the fluids, and rotates the tires. Knock yourself out.

RE: DVD player suggestions

I believe I set the Furrion to "video in" to run sound off the rear jacks. And I don't believe the 3100 is made anymore. It's interesting to note the new Grand Design trailers have a Jensen sound system. And I don't think anybody makes a 12V Blue Ray player that fits in the original opening.

RE: DVD player suggestions

I believe the Furrion we have is a 3100. The TV has a coax sound output & I ran that into a converter to split the left & right channels out and then into the Furrion rear connections. Or - Does the Furrion have a 3mm aux input on the front you could use?

RE: DVD player suggestions

I'm using a Sony residential wi-fi Blue Ray player.

RE: Propane refills - how, where, and how much?

The gas station a mile from my house refills my 10, 20 & 30# tanks.

RE: Bypassing Boston

495. There's a "no propane" restriction on the tunnel.

RE: Adirondacks and Vermont in late June

I'll second the comments from twins89 & GeoBoy. For a full hookup campground we like North Pole Resorts and the 100 Acre Woods side. You can launch at the beach in Wilmington & paddle the Ausable river for a short distance, or travel & do part of the St Regis Canoe Area. There are numerous other places to paddle but you will have to drive to the put-ins. Oh, it'll be black fly season. Depending on how bad they are I recommend bug repellent & maybe headnets.

RE: Leaking propane tank.

Which bodes the question - why do RV manufacturers use black propane tank covers?

RE: Schwintek slide system question

Grand Design used to use Schwintec slides on all their models. But this year they still use Schwintec on the smaller slides but a Lippert system on the larger ones.

RE: Hoping The Next Trip is Better

Dexter or Lippert axles?

RE: 3.5L V6 of 5.0L V8

For the price of a properly equipped F150 you can buy a F250. BTW - love my 3.5 EB.

RE: Bridge and Tunnel Restrictions

The Good Sam Trip Planner alerts you to propane restrictions. Saved me from trying the I95 tunnel in Boston.
