Whitch is the better system 510 or 507? Is 507 the latest or 510? Thanks for everyone's input. The 507 has replaceable batteries and is the newer system. You can order the system with 4, 6, 8 etc. monitors.

RE: Range Hood Exterior Wall Vent

On mine you have to open it from the outside. Two tabs at the bottom push up lightly to release them.

RE: Travel Trailer Tires

Since the Kumho's are getting so hard to find these Hankook's are starting to get some good reviews. I always like Maxxis but you can't get an ST Maxxis in a "D" LR. Check maxxis for their commercial tire in a 14" D rated (Maxxis UE168n bravo) Hankook Not endorsing the store at the link, it's just for reference.

RE: Windows 10 Anniversary Edition SIZE

Get a good book to read. Mine updated yesterday and it took about 6 hours. I hate these forced updates.

RE: Removal of water heater plug hard paste

If the head of the plug breaks off you can drill a hole in the plug and use a sprinkler head (nipple) removal tool to get it out. Hopefully that won't happen. When I had an attwood I just used teflon tape. Make sure you stay with the nylon plugs.

I have the TST 507 system with flo thru monitors. I'm going to replace with the standard monitors. On my trailer with metal stems they stick out past the rim. I have hit road alligators(recap treads) twice and lost a flo thru both times. Right now I only have 3 working monitors. I think I'll just replace the whole unit since 4 monitors will cost me $200. I'll stick with the TST though.

RE: How to aim portable Dish Network satellite

If you are using the 3 LNB western arc remember you are pointing the middle lnb for sat.#119.

RE: Water regular

Get a good one. I like the Watts 263A with the oil filled guage. They are not cheap, but add an Oxygenics shower head and you have a better than stick and brick shower. regulators

RE: Costco Card @ SamsClub

You don't have to be a member of anything other than the human race to shop at Sam's Club. If you are not a member, you pay 10 percent more(not including pharmacy). I believe in California you don't have to pay the extra 10 per cent but must pay in cash.

RE: Water pump

Thanks everyone. Guess it's beer time! :B

Water pump

After 10 days in 109* temps we drained the fresh water tank and headed home (with fresh water tank drain open) Did not know water pump was accidentally turned on and it ran for 7 hours before we discovered it. It still runs but haven't tried to pump water thru it. Do I need to do anything before I try and pump water thru it and if it does pump have I shortened it's life and made it unreliable?

RE: Cold Air Intake

Actually the K&N lets oil get on the MAF sensor and fouls it on a diesel. Getting benefits from changing to a CAI requires alot of money to be spent downstream from the intake to get any real benefits. A "good" tune from a reputable tuner(not out of the box) is a consideration but after trying it all my recommendation is to save your money for fuel.

RE: Portable icemaker?

Now that I've learned to keep it inside in high temps I love it. Keeps our ice chest topped off at all time. Extra goes in freezer. Don't waste your money on an expensive one as they are all pretty much the same. Only the high dollar ones keep the ice frozen. Otherwise you have to dump each batch or it will melt and then be remade into cubes.

RE: California Towing Speed Limit

I used run into a group of CHP officers every morning when they got off shift for coffee. They told me that usually they will look past a trailer doing 62+ if the driver will show them some respect and drop it back a little when they see them. Otherwise they will pull you over. Not saying that's set in stone, just how they handle it.

RE: GFCI Keeps Tripping

Where are you plugging in at to test this? If at home and you are on a GFI protected circuit from the house sometimes they don't play well together with the trailer. If at a campground, I would check for a loose wire on the converter.(actually the circuit breaker)

RE: Whitening yellowed plastic - an easy solution

That looks like it works well. Before I tried that I think I would try spending $1.00 at Dollar Tree or the 99 cent store for some L.A. Totally Awesome. It usually gets rid of the yellow. If that didn't work then I would try the above. Thanks for the tip.

RE: california smog requirements?

Don't know about MH's but on my 2500 HD diesel it's a visual inspection only. All parts must be there without modification. They check for error codes and do a rap test for excessive smoke but really it's just a money mill.

RE: Dear Marcus-Your Millions, My Rules

Funny how Marcus can go on tv and tell people how to run their business but that's all I see on here is how badly his own company is run. Camping World should be the Costco of the RV industry. If you think about an accessory or part, CW should be the go to place to get it. Myself, I don't even consider them. High price, high shipping, no service. It's too bad. At least he gives us a forum to complain about it.

Do you have to actually click the sign in button or can you just hit enter?
