RE: Cold Weather Storage for 5'er battery question

So do I understand this right, the best is to disconnect the battery and use a battery tender while the battery is still in the trailer? Thanks

RE: Cold Weather Storage for 5'er battery question

This is my first trailer with a battery cut off switch. Does it totally isolate the battery from the converter and any 12 volt circuits?

Cold Weather Storage for 5'er battery question

We have our trailer all winterized and parked next to our garage all ready for the cold Wisconsin winter that is fast approaching. Right now it is plugged into a 30 amp outlet. Is it ok to leave the battery in all winter as long as it is being charged by the trailer? Thanks

Winter Storage Flat Panel TV's in 5th wheel

Going to have to store the new 2015 for the winter. There are two Samsung flat panel TV's in the trailer. Do I need to remove them because of the cold temps in Northern Wisconsin? What do most folks do who need to store their trailers for the winter do? Thanks

Main AC Froze up last night-what to do now?

We have a 2015 fifth wheel with two AC units. Our 2005 had only one and I never froze it up in 10 years use. On the thermostat I press the inside temp for Zone 1 (main) and it says 32 degrees F. If I run it I think the compressor is not cycling on because it is not blowing cold air. We are running on the smaller bedroom AC and it is doing its best. Besides turning off the main AC and hope it defrosts, anything else I can do till it melts? Is there a trick to make two AC's play good together? Any advice from your experiences will be appreciated.

Possibly Covering Fifth Wheeler this Winter

We are considering covering our new 5th wheel this winter. Does anyone have any experience in the northern upper Midwest area where we get snow as to what kind of cover is the best to consider? Any suggestions will be appreciated.

RE: Rear caps - pros and cons

Guys can we agree that this is simply owner preference!

RE: 2015 5th Wheelers with Furrion Backup Camera

Update on backup camera. I cannot believe it but Furrion sent me a complete replacement observation camera and monitor for the new trailer. It took about 5 minutes to replace camera on the back of the trailer and a minute to establish the "pair". The bandwidth of this signal is so good I could see individual rain drops falling. And I don't understand how or why but it is OK for this type of camera to be wired on all the time.

RE: Winter in South Texas?

Thinking about Galveston, Corpus Christie and Victoria, Texas, for about 4 to 5 weeks each. Can anyone recommend some good parks in these areas? Thanks!

2015 5th Wheelers with Furrion Backup Camera

Looking to talk to folks who have a 2015 Keystone 5th wheeler for sure (mine is a Montana)that came with a factory installed Furrion (that is the manufacturer) backup camera. Apparently what has happened is that Keystone for sure and some other companies have installed the backup cameras wrong on some of the 2015 trailers that came with this camera as standard equipment. There is no switch and no fuse that can turn it off, it is hotwired permanently on. When you talk to the Furrion tech service they acknowledge that many of their backup cameras are wired wrong. My camera is on ALL THE TIME whether connected to the truck or simply parked. As long as there is power it is on. It was supposed to be active only when connected to the truck and in reverse gear! It will burn out. This camera was never designed to be on constantly. Anyone have this issue?

RE: Verizon in Alaska?

Once we arrived in Tok, AK, our Verizon cell phones worked just like back home. NEVER attempted to use them in Canada, used our OnStar phone on the truck to communicate if required. What we found in British Columbia and especially in the Yukon, cell service was usually available only close and in various towns, not between them at all.

Arizona for our first winter south suggestions please

The wife and I decided that if we go south for our first winter away from Wisconsin our destination would be Arizona. Since we have never done this before do you think it is practical to find maybe four different areas and divide our time between them for four months? We are looking for some suggestions on what areas to visit and maybe what areas to pass on. Any recommendations or suggestions would be appreciated.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2016

We did Alaska from Wisconsin in 2014. It was amazing, every day was a new adventure. Planning on a return in 2016. This time we will add at least an additional month, probably leaving mid May returning end of August. See ya down the road.

Routing Question from my Canadian Friends

Can someone recommend a good route entering Alberta north of Shelby Montana to get to Dawson Creek, but avoiding Calgary and Edmonton, we would be pulling a 40' 5th wheel trailer. Nothing against the two cities but not a fan of urban towing. Thanks!
