RE: 30 Amp Elec plug/ is this straight forward fix?

Mex..almost out of Naolox so I'll switch to De-Oxit on your recommendation. You always seem to know your stuff. Thanks.

RE: Water filter you change filter material

If this is the media you need it might be cheaper and easier to switch to readily available 10" cartridge system. filter media

RE: Shower wont drain unless black tank is dumped

The black tank is usually the only tank vented to the roof. This is totally wrong. Where did you come up with this? Bruce You guys are correct. My sinks are not vented directly to the roof but my 3 tanks are. :S

RE: Use home sewer cleanout as dump station?

Two neighbors had a cleanout put on the side of their house when they built for an rv dump. Passed inspection so I doubt if there is a problem. Daughter is in Clovis with one at her house also.

RE: Towing in sequioa national park

Sequioa RV Ranch just outside the park is your best bet. Unhook and drive the TV into the park for a pleasurable experience.

RE: Monument Valley

The View Campground has the best scenic views you will find. No hookups but even one night is worth the view. Gouldings is a nice campground. By all means take the guided tour. Put your camera in a zip-lock bag as the fine red dust gets into everything!

RE: So what are folks average MPG when towing

If you are concerned about miles per gallon you picked the wrong way to enjoy your recreation. You are pulling a box down the road, mileage doesn't matter as there's not a lot you can do about it that makes economic sense. Just go and enjoy!:)

RE: 30 Amp Elec plug/ is this straight forward fix?

Blades on yours look like they got a little warm. Naolox will help for a better contact. If you replace your end I like the Camco with the handle on it. Easy grip and plenty of room inside to attach wires.

RE: Shower wont drain unless black tank is dumped

Yes, check the vent. The black tank is usually the only tank vented to the roof. Shower and sink are vented by a device under the sink. It's an inline vent. Make sure it is clear and working.

RE: Interior Frig Fans

To me it seems like where you camp is a bigger factor. I hear people say all the time how well there refrig works, but they don't say they are camping where it never gets above 80 degrees. Probably no need for a fan in those temps. When you live where I do and summer temps are over 105 then no my refrig doesn't work worth a darn. Those fans help alot! Sure, correct venting is a big issue for many installations but the temps the refrig is working in is a bigger factor. I have every device known to man to keep ours cool during the summer and I still bring an ice chest for when the temps get to a dangerous level. I have the same thermometer as pictured earlier. Do the fans work? yes.. does a fan in the stack help? yes! Everyone's situation is different.

RE: 65 psi tires vs 50 psi

Don't know how much clearance you have but keep in mind that the Kumho 857 is a metric tire so a 205 will be bigger than the ST 205 you have on there now. If you have the room you will not be sorry. I have had great luck on the trailers I have run them on. Current trailer does not have room so I have the Maxxis which has served me well also although at a lower LR.

RE: 303

I wax then use 303 on decals, tires, slide seals etc. I found that it streaks if you try and wax with it or use too much.

RE: TT fridge to cold

Make sure thermistor is plugged into control board (black box behind refrig) and check fuses on control board. Sounds like you need a new thermistor. Is it hooked to one of the fins on the inside of the refrig.? Easy replace

RE: Anyone use a stovetop without a range hood?

We have a range hood. Never use it as I'm too lazy to go outside and mess with tabs on vent. Have a window behind stove and just open that. Cook outside most of the time. I go camping to be outside not in the trailer cooking.

RE: 2017 Dmax to get Ram Air hood

Many 05's that suffered from "thermal feedback' could have benefited from that. looks like a great addition to me.

RE: Equal-i-zer Hitch: Tools to have on hand.

Don't think you will need the 320 ft/lb torque wrench if your neighbor has one. Once set up , maybe bring a beer over once a year and let him re-check them. A decent torque wrench for the sway brackets will also be a good thing to have for your lug nuts on the wheels. That is where I would spend my money if I were going to buy a torque wrench. I store my wrench at zero to help keep the calibration correct.(others may dispute that but that's what I do)

RE: Slide-out seals?

May be just hype but I use it on seals, tires, decals, you name it. Seems to work wherever I've used it.

RE: Replacing Converter

X2 What TucsonJim said. Randy(Best Converters) may not have the "very" cheapest price but he will walk you thru any problems. Great customer service.
