RE: Use home sewer cleanout as dump station?

I'd do it, to hell with the neighbors. Poop is poop regardless of whether it's coming from the toilet or a tank. I would, however, make sure any tank chemicals are safe for public systems.

RE: What do you do about dirty clothes?

Throw out the dirty and buy some new ones is one plan.

RE: Square Tires !!

Craigslist is just the messenger. Some sketchy people use CL. I've been fortunate selling and buying for years and never have been burned.

RE: Sweltering

If you have only one AC, you may need to add another.

RE: Tires

It won't make a noticeable difference if used as a spare to get to the next tire shop.

RE: 50 AMP cord storage

Sounds like some need to lift a few weights now and then! The standard 50A 30' RV cord is 21.6lbs. Heck that's even less than the Andersen Ultimate! I can tell you my cord feels like it weighs way more than 21.6lbs, but for me it's not the weight so much as coiling and placing it in my storage compartment. Even in warm temps it never seems to relax.

RE: Montana 3711FL kitchen outlets not working

Mduvall, how are you liking your 3711FL? We've had very few issues with ours after 25 days of use and we really like it.

RE: wifi booster/antenna

I just bought a Linksys at Best Buy for $79. It does work, but I've got it outside, on top of my truck hood, encased in a zip lock bag (it's raining). If the wind were to come along and move it 1/4" out of position, I'd probably lose signal. Bottom line is that it's not a cure-all. Linksys has a $159 version, but the blue shirter told me I'd probably be satisfied with the $79 version; I'm not so sure. What pisses me off is I can see the wifi antenna about 150' away, with nothing in the way!

RE: best stuff to polish oxidized fiberglass mh?

Go to the Shurhold marine site for some good products, equipment, and video instructions.

RE: Question about gas/electric water heater

I don't recall that 20-year old WHs had electric elements but I could be mistaken. On my 2014 Wildcat, there was a small switch at the front of the tank (looking from the outside panel access), that was hard to see.

RE: Need tire suggestions

From all the comments I've read, no one complains about Sailuns and GY614s come in second, both ahead of Maxxis.

RE: Adhesive for rubber door gasket

Perhaps rubber cement, but clean off both surfaces with acetone or similar.

RE: New Tire Recommendations

Sailun 637, Goodyear 614, or Maxxis.

RE: AC Efficiency?

A properly sized AC unit should be able to cool 20 degrees below the ambient temperature. I suggest you get it serviced. A single AC unit should adequately cool a 31' RV in low humidity conditions.

RE: Residential Fridge Report

Sounds like you may be drawing the batteries down below 50 percent... Not good for them so what was the voltage? My 21 CuFt draws 8 amps and runs less than 12 hours per day... Less than 100 AH/ day. Your Samsung should use slightly less and runs well on a MSW inverter. If you boondock often I would want four batteries. It was an impromptu test resulting from being too tired to unload the RV upon arriving home and not being able to hook up to 120v power that night. I didn't bother to check the battery voltage. I was surprised there was enough juice to bring in the 6 slides first. I suspect it was 11v or less by the time I tried to retract the levelers because they require, off the top of my head, no less than 11.5v to operate. My fridge draws 7a or so, and since the doors were not opened during the 17 hours, I'm guessing it didn't operate more than 8 of those hours; perhaps much less. BTW, I forgot to mention it's a 1000w inverter, and yes (based on this not too scientific test), I'd think anyone boon-docking with a similar setup would need four 6v deep-cycle batteries, preferably a good solar panel supplement, and expect to run a genset to recharge every day.

RE: best residential frig for a MH

We like the Samsung 18cf that came with our new RV. Don't know the model no. offhand.

Residential Fridge Report

Many folks are asking about residential fridges so here's my report FWIW. Samsung 18cf came installed and with only one battery. Dealership added one at my insistence. They're typical hybrid Interstate "RV/Marine" batteries so nothing special. Arrived home last night at 6pm and did not hook up to 120v power. Put out the slides and used the 6-point leveling and left fridge running off the inverter overnight. Was still running fine at 11pm today. Unloaded and pulled in the slides okay, BUT I didn't have enough volts left to retract the levelers. Regardless, I am satisfied the fridge ran for 17 hours on admittedly inexpensive batteries. Four 6v batteries would be much better. Also, no inside problems as we made sure the fridge stuff was well packed and no glass jars were allowed to roll around. We don't think fridge bars will be necessary.
