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?

RE: Tent Stake Hack

swcook...I don't know what your true intention was but am willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. If you are here for good reasons then welcome to the forum. Don't get discouraged by the forum Nazi's who question everyone's motives and think they need to moderate every post or have the answer to every question. As I have posted numerous times, it sometime takes a thick skin to survive on "any" forum. Stick around.. there is a lot of good info here. If you are an advertising troll, please go away.

RE: Sorry... another wheel chock question

X chocks are great for getting rid of motion inside the trailer but are not intended to keep the trailer from rolling away. A wedge chock does that best. My BIL lives in a lake community where there is a boat in every driveway. Some are very steep. Some people have put in anchors into the cement and use a safety chain to keep it from rolling down the steep incline should there wedge block get displaced. At the campground I use both the Xchocks and wedge chocks.

RE: Yeti coolers?

If I'm not mistaken, Consumer Reports said the Ozark Trail 30oz. insulated tumbler ($9.74 @ walmart) kept ice longer than the Yeti.

RE: Tent Stake Hack

New member who immediately recommends a specific, linked product seems rather close to an advertisement. Doesn't appear to be selling anything. No wonder so many 1st time posters never come back to post again. My first post on this forum I was accused being "another dealer troll" because I posted a "beware" warning about a terrible dealer. I'm sure it happens all the time but it just seems like we can all be a little quick to judge. (myself included)

I do the same as Old Biscuit.

RE: Tire Minder

Another vote for TST if for nothing else than their customer service. All of the top brands will do what you need and are not much different. Haven't had any experience with other's customer service but TST's is first rate!

RE: Fresh Water Tank Leaking Badly!

When you do find the leak, this stuff works pretty well according to a friend who has used it. Need room to get a heat gun to blow on it though. Poly Weld

RE: 10' x 10' Canopy : Round Stakes or Weighted Bags to secure?

It depends on where we are going. If sand is available we use the eco friendly canvas grocery bags filled with sand and attached with a bungee cord. No sand...I bring 5 gal. buckets, fill with water and attach with bungee cords. Cheap and easy. I do like the bags you linked to though.

RE: Park pedestal wiring

In 110 degree temps 14 of us usually setup an outdoor kitchen. We end up with electric griddles, roasters, and electric fry pans. All the power for this usually comes from the two closest pedestals. I was just wondering if by distributing the output from all three available sources at the post if I would keep from creating a low voltage situation "in" my trailer which would be connected to the 50 amp(reduced to 30 amp) on one of the two pedestals used.

RE: Electrical Head Scratcher

MEX...can you give us more details on that circuit breaker? Is it a direct replacement for the pile of snot?

Park pedestal wiring

Just wondering if anyone knows the typical wiring for a park pedestal. My question is...Is the 30 amp outlet run off the same wiring as the 50 amp just with a smaller breaker and single hot? If I use the 50 amp with a 30 amp pigtail and then use the 30 amp with a 15amp pigtail am I stealing power from my own 50 amp feed? We are going to be camping in 110* degree temps and thought I would try and distribute power usage by running things off all the available outlets. Am I fooling myself?

RE: TT A/C Issues

If you don't have a 50amp to 30 amp pigtail you should get one. The ability to use the 50 amp is very handy not only for low voltage but worn out 30 amp receptacles. I agree that low voltage is more than likely your problem. I use both an EMS and an autoformer.

RE: DC not working

Check your breakers and 12 volt fuses.

RE: Portable Ice Maker

Magic Chef from Walmart. We use filtered water from our Brita picther since it melts in your cup and you end up drinking it. If it's hot out it will work much better inside the trailer. Love ours. No reason to spend big$$$. They seem to be about the same.

RE: Odd refrigerator problem

Could someone explain this a little better, please. I'm not sure what you mean by a clip on the fin at the rear of the frig. How are you seeing the back of the frig. A photo would sure help. Thanks Not actually on "back side" of refrig. Open door. At the top of the refrig. section on the inside back wall are a set of cooling fins. The thermistor (wire with round tube head and a clip) should be attached to one of the fins on the right side(when looking in). Higher is colder.

RE: Easy Start 13,500 AC

I believe the Coleman do. Easy to install on any other.

RE: Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 - DECISION MADE - THANK YOU

I moved to 10 because it seemed to me that MS would like everyone on a single OS. Limiting OS's, they only have to fight maleware, hackers, vulnarbility, etc. on one platform. It makes economic sense for them. I also started seeing that with each update (which was primarily targeted for 10) I was finding more small issues crop up on my OS. I finally went with the old saying "if you can't beat them, join them. I'm happy with the change. As for privacy....you're on the internet, how private do you expect? The gov. knows everything I do anyways so why worry what MS knows, if I'm not doing anything wrong. I look at it as the price I pay for the convenience of a free internet.
