Question on MSW vs PSW inverter

I have a Lance TC and am looking at installing a GoPower 600W modified sine wave inverter that I have had for about a year, never installed. I want to be able to power small items like phone charger and Direct TV box. Maybe small 120v lamp while boondocking. I understand the limitations of a small 600W inverter. Do I need to get a PSW inverter for these things? I looked into powering an electric blanket and found most need a PSW but I was not certain about the phone charger and DTV box (HR44 model)....

RE: Downsizing to TC and a few questions

Thanks for the replies....the engine is the 6.7 and I did read the issues in the link provided......Sort of a mixed bag but it appears that the issues they had were fixed 3 yrs later..... The vehicle is at a Ford dealer in Boise, ID and I think I will run up and look at it in the next few days.........Will be keeping my eyes open also for a 14 or newer.....

Downsizing to TC and a few questions

Going form a 2014 Newmar 40' Class A to a TC....The camper will be something similar to the larger Artic Fox/Lance, etc..... For a truck, I am looking at a 2011 Ford F450, DRW, diesel......27K miles, good shape....... Is there anything I need to be aware of ref the truck/year, etc..?? Anything specific to look for/at ??

Waldport, Or to Redmond, Or

40' MH pulling a Jeep.....Will be in Waldport, Or for a few days then need to get east to Redmond..... Any suggestions on best route to the Interstate 5 area?? Looks like either one of a couple of routes: 1. Hwy 20 thru Corvallis to I-5 then east from there.....Is Hwy 20 doable?? Looks like a smaller road, twisty..... 2. Backtrack a bit to Hwy 18/22 thru Salem to the I-5 area then east from there ... Suggestions????

RE: looking at 06 Gulfstream Independence

Owned one for 5 yrs (8295 30' with 3 slides) and was thoroughly pleased with it....It had the Ford chassis.. GS has a bad rep, some deserved and some not....The coach portion of mine was good, just keep in mind it is entry level and the materials reflect that.... I put about 25K miles on it and nothing negative to report other than what might be expected......

RE: Fueling a DP

I have always used a Pilot/Flying J card..Allows you to fill up at the pump, no going inside and no limit....I believe it is through Good Sam.....6 cents off the cash price.....Pay the balance at the end of the month..... Never had an issue with the card and fueling is never an issue....In and out in a few minutes.....In over 32K miles over the past 2 1/2 yrs almost most always use Pilot and for me it works...... Some do not like the truck stops but they are easy to navigate and typically have plenty of room....
