FYI, there are 18 states that have a town named Rockport. ryoung

RE: Put money down on a livinlite 6.8.

Just me thinking, but I would not take the risk of carrying 2.5 gallons of gas strapped to the rear of my truck. Even a minor rear end collision could turn into a disaster. ryoung

RE: A Devastating Discovery

I don't know the timeline between the repairs and your discovery of the disconnected fitting, but I would think they would offer a warranty on their repair work. I will definitely leave this company off my list as I possibly look for another TC within the next year. Thanks for the post. ryoung

RE: Fire!

I had a similar event happen several years ago. The TV was in a open cabinet in the upper bedroom in a fifth wheel rv. I got up in the night to use the bathroom. Going back to bed I noticed the TV was beginning to smoke. Not seeing any flames, I grabbed the tv and pulled it out without taking any time to unhook the coax or power cord. The smoke alarm went off at this time. Thru it outside and watched it until the smoke dissipated. It did not catch fire. The next morning I took it apart and found a capacitor that had melted. It was the old CRT type. Also heard that the campground had had some type of electrical problem that night as other rv's had some damage. ryoung

RE: Happy Camper Tank Additive

My take on those that think their black tank does not sink Either you have a radically different metabolism than everybody else Or You have a defective nose Water alone does not keep poop from stinking Very True. Or it could be that old saying, "My ---- doesn't stink." ryoung

RE: Pinkish-orange algae in water lines

If you predominately fill your fw tank with well water, it could be iron bacteria as one poster mentioned. I have dealt with it before. I wouldn't be that afraid of its health effect. But if you are unsure take a sample of it to you local health department and see if they can identify it. Here is a link describing iron bacteria. ryoung

RE: Selling an RV Through Consignment

If you consign on a percentage basis, make sure there is some agreement that allows you to see the selling invoice so that you get your true cut of the transaction. ryoung

RE: Remote thermostat

If you are just wanting to monitor the house temperature and have a home security system that reports to a monitoring station, have a temperature switch installed in the security system. The monitoring station will call you if the temperature drops below the set point. ryoung

RE: Ford F250 Super Duty

When I purchased my truck and camper that's in my signature, I found the same "not recommended for truck camper". Lots of research but never did get any answer from anyone. I bought the Lance 915 and added an across the bed 30 gallon aux diesel tank and ended up fully loaded about 500 lbs lower than the 11,500 GVWR. I put nearly 75,000 miles touring the US, Canada and Alaska with nary an incident. Go figure. ryoung

RE: Connecting to propane tank on motorhome

The OP didn't ask how to connect and so I assume he knows how. If he doesn't then I suspect he'll ask. As to how I did it; I did it right. It amazes me some of the smart ass replies posted here. D.E. Bishop was only questioning whether the OP was doing it the safe way. Thanks for asking , each appliance has its own regulator, my hoses will be before the regulator on the motorhome. The OP does not know the correct and safe way to connect the propane hose, as I outlined in my post above. And you criticize someone for asking??? ryoung

RE: Connecting to propane tank on motorhome

Thanks for asking , each appliance has its own regulator, my hoses will be before the regulator on the motorhome. For safety's sake, I would run any hoses from the low side of the tank regulator and NOT from the high pressure side of the tank. Depending on the ambient temperature the tank pressure can get as high as 160 psig and maye higher. A hose failure could be disastrous at this pressure. The low side of the regulator is usually set to 13" Water Column, which is less than 0.5 psi., a much safer pressure. You will have to remove any regulators hooked to the inlets of the lantern and BBQ grill. Do it the safe way. ryoung

RE: Dual air bags

It would seem to me that the added bags would have to be the same size, square inch wise. Otherwise you would have to run different pressures in the bags to insure they are sharing the load. I know longer have my truck camper, but was on the weight police force at the time. If you are worried that the present airbags are "putting an awful lot of stress on themselves, their mounting brackets & bolts, and the frame where they attach.", you're carrying to much **** weight. ryoung I know longer own the TC and truck in my signature.

RE: Do you drive with your propane on?

There can be no comparison between a vehicle engine running on propane and an RV that is using propane for refrigeration, as far as a safety concerns in a filling station. The fact that an RV refrigerator uses a small flame to boil the water ammonia mixture in the system. This flame is somewhat open to the atmosphere and hence could be a source of ignition of fumes from a gasoline spill at a gas station. What are the chances? IMO not great enough to turn off the propane when fueling. ryoung
