RE: Arctic Fox 27T switch help

Step light, or a light near the dump valves?

RE: Good trickle charger or not?

On another note - the phone company central offices have generator and battery backup. The batteries are flooded lead acid cells, typically 2500AH for a 2V cell. They're under a constant charge by the rectifiers.

RE: Good trickle charger or not?

Seems I heard VW shipped their cars with a small solar charger to keep the battery up during transport. I wonder if it's true, and what do they do with the solar panels after the vehicle is sold?

RE: 4000 watt Generator with A/C vs 1500 watt Gen without A/C???

We camp mostly in the Northeast if we dry camp so we forego the AC. My Honda 2000i really loads down when I use the microwave.

RE: RV antifreeze test

I believe the specific heat of the antifreeze is lower than water. Translation - it won't stay cold as long as ice. I mail order my meds from a place in Texas. In the summer months they ship my gelcaps UPS overnight with a freezer pack in the package. So now I have a collection of freezer packs for my small coolers. BTW - "overnight" doesn't include weekends. Order them on a Friday and they'll arrive Monday. Lesson learned - don't order them on a Friday in the summer.

RE: Pull battery for winter?

I pull my batteries only because I don't want them to wander off during the winter.......

RE: Campingworld

Interesting, since I got a $10 off coupon for any other Camping World store. Didn't Myers used to be in Caledonia?

RE: RV Battery Charge

The battery itself should have a manufacturers warranty, maybe a year?

RE: Is this normal tire wear?

That's why I detest wide-track axles on trailers - too much scrubbing on tight turns.

RE: Are you getting enough Vitamin D ?

My doc has me on 50,000 units once a week.

RE: Tow Vehicle?

If you get the 3.5 EcoBoost you won't lack for power. But as others have said, you'll run out of payload before hitting your tow capacity. And I don't see any payload specs on Fords website. After adding up the weight of passengers, gear, hitch, and tongue weight you'll probably be over the vehicle GVW.

RE: Installing P3 break controllers to 2015 F150

I spliced my P1 harness into the Ford harness. If you go that route, splice by function and not by color. I also mounted the P1 in the stock location. Over on the F150 forum there were pics posted on taking the dash apart to do this, there's probably YouTube videos by now.

RE: A question on ammo

You can try cleaning the cylinder chambers with a new .22 or even a .24 caliber brush. Or it's possible the chambers themselves are a tad undersized. IIRR on one of the other gun forums I visit someone else posted the same problem. Or you can just chalk it up that your HS doesn't like this ammo.

RE: If you're thinking LED and not sure

Our TT got LED's before its maiden voyage.

RE: Hi all..hitting the road in 2 weeks.

1) What's the power draw (amps) on the freezer at 12V? 2) How many and what size batteries do you have? You may find you need 4-6V golf cart batteries. That's just a guess.....

RE: Break Controllers

Pridigy P3 is a good controller. I moved the Prodigy P1 I had into the F150. I just checked 3 times and spliced the harnesses together (a plug 'n play cable is much easier.) There were directions over on the F150 forum on how to take the dash apart to mount the controller in the stock location, YouTube probably has a few videos also.

RE: Watkins Glen, NY which campground to choose for next summer

We had no issues at Watkins Glen SP but that was a few years ago. Did the poster go on a race weekend? The reviews were from Aug, I am not into Nascar. Do you know when race weekend is... I will defiantly avoid it! Mike August 7, 2016 is the NASCAR race. But the Glen is used for other race events also.

RE: Small engine question

Synthetic 10W-30 for me please. Snow blowers don't have air cleaners because fine snow would act like dust and plug them up.
