RE: Furnace not working first time out.

If this is the first time you are going to use it and you do manage to get it to run, keep in mind that it is going to stink. You will be burning off the oils from production and you will probably set off your smoke alarms. Open some windows just in case. Best place for first run is in your driveway. Good luck getting it going.

RE: 2 burner gas stove recommendations

Nothing beats the old fashion Coleman Stove Funny thing happened when we last camped next to a couple using their "old" white gas Coleman. We cooked our entire dinner on our propane stove while we watched them try to light theirs. After we started to eat the husband came over and asked if he could borrow our stove. He cooked his dinner, returned ours and threw his in the trash. I'm sure the dual fuel "new stoves" are better but it was funny.

RE: Surge protectors... Do you use them?

bob213, interesting that you got shut down. Do you know if anyone that didn't get shut down had damage or not? It seems that most people don't know they are experiencing a low voltage situation. From what I have been told the extra amps drawn to keep your A/C running creates heat which causes a cumulative effect on the unit. It's burn out over an extended period of time unlike an over power situation that causes immediate damage.

RE: 50 amp services at my house, need some help..

If you do it or have an electrician do it, take a look at this. Especially when installing 50 amp. TEST before you plug in! RV Electric

RE: Bought a Scamp!

It must be because they are so unique and functional that every time the DW and I travel we point out Scamps and Casitas we see going down the road. Great to see a unit that gets people out there without having to buy a 400HP tow vehicle.

RE: Surge protectors... Do you use them?

Most of the people that say "I've been RVing for 25 years and never needed one" just don't realize they may have needed one. We camp in 100*+ temps and my EMS has shut me down on several ocassions for low voltage. I always ask the campers around me if they are seeing low power and not once have I had someone tell me yes (as they don't monitor nor have an EMS) At the other end of the scale , we frequent a state park that routinely experiences overpower at night and my EMS shuts me down. Only once have I talked to another camper there that had the same protection and experience. All the others I asked were unaware. You don't need a surge protector. If you are going to spend the money get a Progressive Industries EMS unit, portable or hardwired. JMO We also use an autoformer.

RE: 2 burner gas stove recommendations

I was impressed with a friends new coleman stove but you might want to consider an induction burner like the nu wave also. Coleman

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.
