RE: Tow Vehicle Improvements

Here's my $.02 - I tow a 4800# 29' TT with a 2003 Chevy Tahoe with a 5.3L rated at 285 hp and 3.73 gears. It had a cat-back exhaust on it when I bought it so I can't speak for that before/after. I had the same concern as you. It struggles on the hills. I tried a cold air intake and between that and the exhaust the noise was almost unbearable. I took the intake off. Didn't notice any difference in power anyway. I did install a low restriction air filter though and opened up the air box a little.I had the ECM tuned and that made a noticeable difference. That was definitely worth it. But here is my take on it......it's going to slow down in the hills. Just let the motor do it's best and take your time and accept the fact that everyone is going to pass you. Sometimes I find that easing up on the throttle a bit helps rather than planting your foot in it all the time. With that said.....my next truck WILL be a diesel.

RE: Installing RhinoFlex fittings

Just for future reference for anyone else......I heard back from Camco and they said to use Vasoline. It worked. Thanks to everyone who replied.

RE: Awning travel lock necessary?

I just did the search that I should have done before posting. Lots of good ideas. Thanks. Now I just need to decide which one to use.

Awning travel lock necessary?

We have a 20' Dometic powered awning. I have heard some talk about the possibility of awnings unfurreling while going down the road.....and we all know what a mess that would make. I know our old trailer had a manual awning and we had some straps that were an extra security measure for the possibility of it actually falling open but nothing to keep the awning itself from unrolling. We never had an issue with that one. But on this one the arms are held in the closed position by the motor but again nothing to keep it from unrolling other than the spring. The locks that I have seen for the electric models would keep the actual awning from unrolling but nothing to keep the arms from falling open. Do any of you believe in any kind of travel locks for the electric awnings?

RE: Installing RhinoFlex fittings

This is a genuine Camco RhinoFlex hose. What will the heat do? Soften it up a little?

Installing RhinoFlex fittings

Well our RhinoFlex hose started leaking and I really liked the type of hose so I removed the fittings and just bought a new length of hose. I found that the fittings are not real easy to screw on to the new hose. They go about half on to the new hose and I can't turn them any further. I tried silicone spray, spray wax, and WD40 and I can't get them to go on any further. Anyone have any tricks?
