RE: Just completed a few mods.

My experience has been that you can use the full 30amps and full 20 amps at the same time. May not apply to all parks, but so far has been my experience. :)

RE: 7.3L Ford Diesel

I have a 2002 F250 with 7.3L diesel with 88,000 miles on it and pull a 10,500 lb fifth wheeler with no problems. The 7.3 is almost bullet proof, the Ford mechanics tell me it is the best engine Ford ever put in a pickup. Does not have the power and mpg of the 6.7L now on the market but one hell of an engine. :)

RE: Humming from Progressive Industires EMS 50 amp system

The relay, probably needs to be changed. Call PI, they have a lifetime warranty that is excellent. As said the other company sucks.

I put 303 on the decals, then wax up to the decals. :)

RE: Anyone run the generator on TT while underway?

We do it on our 5er if the weather is real hot.

RE: Problems lighting oven pilot

Let the top burners burn for a minute or two to make sure all air is out of the lines.

RE: A bubble in my Compass

I would bet leaving it on the dash is the culprit, as it gets super hot on the dash. The oil expanded and then probably leaked a little & after cooling back down air bubble. Time to visit Wallyworld for another. :(

RE: replacing 15" tires

This is what I did about 5 or 6 years ago and no regrets. Just make sure you have enough room for the 1" larger diameter tire. I went from ST225/75 R15 LR-D to LT 225/75 R16 LR-E two years ago. Upgraded to 16" rims. You need to make sure your trailer can handle 16" tires and wheels. I don't know of any 15" LT tires.

RE: Costco Igloo iceless 28

They do not cool that great, only 40°or 45° below ambient temp. On a 90° day that is 45° to 50°. A reg refridgerator is usually 40° or a little lower.:(

RE: Telescoping mirrors - oem vs aftermarket

I replaced my OEM mirrors on my F250 with 3rd party towing mirrors and love them. As good as OEM but a lot less money. :)

RE: Pex repair fittings

Should be the same, 1/2" PEX.

RE: 50 amp outlet tester

Me too! :) I plug in and let my PI EMS HW50C do all the checking before it allows power into the coach. It also will kick the coach offline if the power goes bad for some reason after connecting. Yes, it is expensive but it does the job and is a one time expense to protect everything electrical in your unit. Progressive Industries has some of the best support of any company in the USA. Oh, did I say it is guaranteed for life.

RE: Surge Guard Monitor

I mounted my Progressive Industries monitor on the side of the TV. When I mant to check on things it is right there, otherwise I don't even notice it. :)

RE: Spare tire holder ideas

I am on tne verge of ordering the BAL spare tire carrier to mount to the frame under the trailer. Just waiting for the weather to warm up a little, my old bones just don't like lying down on the cold damp ground. :)
