RE: LP Tank Gauge?

I tried one. it extended the hose farther out and it rubbed on the tank cover. Finally rubbed a hole in hose. Lost all my propane and was a dangerous situation. Now I do as SoundGuy does.

RE: Locked out?

RE: Any E rated tire in 205/75/14 or heaviest available.

Hard to find an "e" rated tire in 14". The three listed above...Hankook,Kumho, and the Maxxis Bravo are all commercial tires and seem to work well for what you want. Keep in mind that they are metric size tires so like Dannyabear1 pointed out a 195R14 is the same size as an ST 205/75/14. Check diameter size and clearance before buying.

RE: Best RV Satellite Configuration?

I have a tripod, dish network dish and take one of my receivers from home, so the rv costs nothing extra. I have dual tuner sat. receivers so one receiver provides tv to kitchen and bedroom allowing different channels to be watched. It's not hard to point your antenna after a few attempts and bringing the receiver back and forth is easier when you set your wires up for quick connect and disconnect. I bought an extra set of remotes since that is the one item I usually forget. Now I just leave a set in the trailer. It works well for us. If you are out of the local area you can call Dish and relocate your spot beam to wherever you are. Tripod let's me put antenna wherever, so trees etc. are not a factor.

RE: About to retire but need some advice

Not being smart a$$ or mean spirited but IMO if you need to work for extra income it's not time to retire. Wife and I both retired at 56 and everyone said we would be back out in workforce in a year or going nuts at home. Haven't looked back once and can hardly remember working now. Don't quit that good paying job until you are ready to quit working! JMO Enjoy your retirement, whenever it starts.

RE: 1st Travel Trailer

I would suggest an inexpensive volt meter, a 50amp to 30 amp dogbone, a space heater(cheaper to run than using your propane) a small fan when it's not hot enough for the AC but want some air movement, a good water regulator like a watts, an oxygenics shower head. Fuses were mentioned but make sure to get the large ones 30amp or 40amp that you will see on your converter. 10/15/and 20 amp are always easy to find the larger ones not always. We find an electric skillet is a handy thing to have. If you have a tandem axle trailer some type of x chocks will help take the movement out when you are inside. You'll find more every time you camp. You are never done buying once you get an rv. You don't need all this to start. Go out and enjoy and build your "must haves" as you go. Happy Camping!

RE: Monument Valley in June?

June would work fine. Take the Indian guided tour. Gouldings was a great campground. I don't think the Indian campground has hookups but you are right there for those sunrise pictures. Put your camera in a baggie. The fine red dust gets into everything. Well worth the time. Even my wife who is not into the natural wonders was glad we went.

RE: Propane Fire Pits

RE: Fumoto Valve

Me too! I have the version that you can attach a hose to. Keeps the oil off my skid plate. No clean-up. Love it

RE: Pair of Yam EF2000is to run roof AC?

Both Honda and Yamaha have problems with the Progressive EMS unit. I believe the EMS sees an open ground. This can be solved with a neutral ground bonding plug inserted in either generators 15amp outlet. It's just a plug with a jumper between the neutral and ground posts. neutral ground plug A Suppco hard start capacitor will help but the two genies should be able to do it on their own.

RE: Need advice on setting TPMS alarms

When I got my 1st TST there was an additional sheet that recommended 20 per cent above max (or normal running pressure) and 10 per cent below. I still use those percentages's.

RE: Home electric hook up

If you want to be sure, use a volt meter and look here under "outlet testing" to see what each leg should read. Better to be safe than sorry. I think it was a good idea to install the 50 amp. We always think this is the last trailer we are buying until we see something else that catches our eye. rv electric

RE: Extended Run Generator setup

I did mine the same way as chuckbear and it works great.

RE: Who makes a good electric jack?

Barker, Ultra Fab, BullDog and Husky will probably be the names you hear the most. Barker has great service, BullDog has long warranty and Husky is getting very popular. Just get a big enough one keeping in mind that you are raising the back of the TV as well. 3500lbs. and above is what I like.

RE: Here is why you should buy Tire Pres Monitoring Sys from TST

Many of us who have been here for awhile forget that not everyone will understand these acronyms. TPMS is quite common, you probably have one on your personal vehicle. TST is at the top of the after market products and widely recognized by the acronym. I agree that we should try and put the extended version somewhere in our post for those that don't recognize the acronym. If we forget...remember Google is your friend..;) Thanks Teamfour..TST is a great company.

RE: Christmas present storage

We thought the boat was a good place until we got a trailer. As mentioned, warm comfortable,room to wrap and listen to the stereo while were at it. Merry Christmas to all!!!
