RE: Hitting the road again . . . HELP!

Sounds like an awful lot of work to make do? I can understand getting stuff out that you may not use to make room for what you want, but honestly unless your TV is capable of hauling your trailers GVWR your just defeating yourself before you begin.

RE: New 5er Looking for cmpnt sugg to make 2-300W porta solar

Do not understand why you do not want to permnently mount the panels? But trying to move, store and setup panels without breaking them is going to be difficult at best. Permanent mount isyour best solution and not difficult to do.

RE: Front Storage door lock jambed

Drill it out. I just replced two of mine for the exact same issue. They are cheapand easy to replace before youdrill it out, try some lock eze and work the key around a bit. That would eventually get mine to unlock until i got around to replacing them.

RE: Landing gear problem

They are easy to get out. While supporting that side, remove the two bolts holding it to the frame, Disconnect the cross over shaft and lift it out, dropping the foot and inner leg in the process. These things are so simple it makes me wonder why people don't fix them at home. Take the top cap off and look. You will see two bevel gears one turns the screw to move the leg up/down. Could be a broken gear, missing drive pin or stripped gear. It will be apparent fast enough when you take it apart.

RE: Keeps kicking breaker..

Breaker tripping? I would start checking wiring. My guess you have a broken wire or a loose connection somewhere. What plug did you change? Cord end or what? I have seen a couple of stray strands cross over to another terminal and short things. Get your volt meter out and start checking continuity around the circuits until you find what is wrong. Just be sure to disconnect everything first.

RE: AC Voltage Through Frame/Stablizers

You guaranteed have a grounding issue. If your using an adapter of some sort, that is the first place I would go. They are infamous for failing at the ground lug. Also check polarity of the receptacle your plugged into It is possible that it is wired back words or there is no ground there.

RE: Slideout hydrolic pump failure

What failed? is it simply leaking or has it quit? Did you check power to the switch? Does the switch get power through it? So please tell me what you have or have not tried. And do you have a volt meter so you can check power? Or do you simply want to throw parts at the problem in hopes of fixing it.

RE: New roof! Should I use TPO or EPDM ??

Have you considered using a spray on bed liner? At least one high end RV manufacturer is offering it as an option.

RE: 07 Silverado

Good grocery getter, lousy for towing much more than a family and a tent trailer.
donn0128 04/23/14 02:03pm Tow Vehicles

Subjective question. I like my Garmin Dezl760LMT. It has four modes, two of which you can customize for your vehicle. Others seem to like R-M, others think Tom Tom is great. Go check each brand out and pick the one you think will work best for you.

RE: seeking recomendations for a towing vehicle that will seat 7

Used or new? Used, a 2500 Suburban or Excursion would be the top two choices New, then it is a real C%^& shoot I understand GM killed the 2500 Suburban so that effectively killed it as a credible tow vehicle. Most pickups will configure for 5 or 6 seats only, so that ends that idea unless your taking a second vehicle.

RE: Looking at a 2001 Cedar Creek 30 RLS. small leak

Aluminum frame so that wont be an issue. There is still wood in the floor and inside wall board. So it could be an easy fix or a lot of work.

RE: conversion of camper vans to 4 wheel

There used to be companies thst did that. As i remember it added about 10K to the base price of the van. I assume this is Ford based? So searching out front axle assembly, transfer case from a donoe truck should be doable. Just takes a lot of time to engineer mounts etc to connect everything. Lastmissue would probably be the computers. Getting them to understand the changes could bea daunting task.

RE: Should my 5th wheel have shock absorbers?

Still not offered as standard on the smaller trailers. Heck our 2002 Arctic Fox did not have them either.

RE: Umpqua Lighthouse Campground & Satellite TV

Like most of the coast parks there is lots of trees. Dont expect to get a signal unless your really lucky.

RE: Should my 5th wheel have shock absorbers?

Should it? Probsbly notespeciallyin thst size and age. Will it help to have them? Yes. But unless it has shock mounts it is unlikely if it was even offered as an option.

RE: Greenfield Village - How Many Days?

Two at minimum plus another two days for the henry ford museum right next door.

RE: 1998 Fleetwood Avion Valve

There should actually be three valves. One each for how and cold low point drains and one for the potable water tank.

RE: Starcraft 14 R/T furnace system questions

A typical 35K BTU propane furnace will burn approx 1/2 gallon of gas per hour. I just filled one of my propane tanks and it took only 5 gallons after three weeks. Battery is going to be your biggest problem. A typical 12VDC deep cycle battery might last one night IF your really careful with power management. Your going to then need a way to fully recharge the battery.
