RE: Electrical

120VAC circuits are usually daisy chained, so go to each working circuit, pull it apart and look for loose wires. Repeat until you find the loose connection. BTW those push on wire connections have a bad habbit of coming loose, so new outlets with screw terminals are a great idea.

RE: Driking from fresh water tank

Guess were lucky. First we have a filter system installed, second Max does not really have a sensative stomach. He gets a regular change of dog food and has no problems with the diet changes, same for water. Bottled water is heavy to pack around, is expensive, and disposal of used bottles can be hard on the enviroment. Do I drink bottled water some times? Yes. But it is usually when I am on the road driving 8 to 10 hours at a stretch and time is money, I need to get to a job. Otherwise I drink my arsenic ladened well water from home.

RE: Best source for 110 electrical parts online

Any big box or electrical supply house. You do not need nor should you use the cheap******that manufacturers install. Get quality stuff including shallow remodel boxes and your good to go.

RE: Driking from fresh water tank

More comments from an uninformed salesman. Once the tank and potable water system is properly sanitized there is NO reason not to use it. Do not store water for long periods of time and it will always be fresh and safe to drink.

RE: Generator for 5th wheel RV

Is usually an option on most larger fivers. But most people avoid them due to high cost, limited run time and actual use. Instead most of us choose a more inexpensive alternative like a pair of Honda 2KW generators.

RE: firestone tires

Ohhhhh, so they are NOT Firestone tires? Freestar tires made in China sold by whole bunch of different tire stores. Just more ST junk. Maybe you should consider installing LT tires for a change.

RE: firestone tires

RE: Diagnose electrical issues

Cant tell for sure, but if it is connected to the - battery terminal it means a bad ground. If it is connected to battery + then it is a circuit breaker. They are cheap, so dont panic, just go buy a new 30A resettable breaker, install it and go camping.

RE: kitchen faucet

Go to the big box store and pick your favorite.

RE: Highway 101 CA., OR., WA

101 is a decent highway. Lots of teuck traffic during the week, tourists all summer, especially heavy on weekends.

RE: Insulation

Damn, alright. Thanks for the reality check, y'all. Then that would bring me to another question: what's the best way to retain heat and cold inside the trailer? Winter living in Oregon (in the Portland area anyway) isn't too big of an issue for us. I'll just put a skirt around the thing and make sure any air leaks are plugged. But we're moving to Texas next year and want to be able to retain cool inside the trailer as much as possible. Is the best way to do this just to park under a tree or canopy, away from the sun for much of the day, and put tint on the windows, while running a window shaker? (We're going to have shore power in the summer and there is no AC installed in the trailer right now.) No matter what you do, figure 75 dollars a week for propane and a 150 a month for electricity. Thats what it cost me winter 2013 in Troutdale.

RE: towing long TT

Watching the mirrors and a lot of practice helps. Sadly, there is no way in heck I would ever consider towing a 35 foot TT. Just too unwieldy.

RE: How Often do You Empty and Clean Your Bays

Yearly, usually before our first trip. Amazing how much junk accumulates over a year.

RE: Primewell ST tires

Another fly by night name for some cheap junk. Your choices really should come down to two brands. Maxxis and for the life of my I cant remember the other.

RE: Light weight portable gas grill

There are only two worth considering. Weber Q series or the Weber black box. Both gas or briquettes versions are around 50 dollars.

RE: Newbie Frig Questions

RV refers now days will always require 12VDV from the house battery as control voltage. In addition it will need either 120VAC or propane for cooling. Most newer absorbition refers will automatically switch between the two sources choosing the most ecomonical. You really need a house battery installed in your trailer. It will also supply power for your trailers brakes in case of seperation from the tow vehicle. Generally speaking most people turn on their refer 24 hours prior to loading with perishable food.

RE: Satellite problem 2014 Keystone Avalanche

Very typical. There is usually splitters in the system and or they also use rg59 coax, which satellites dont like any longer. Run a dedicated rg6 coax and be done with it.

RE: Electric

Insid or outside? Likey a bad ground.

RE: Gate Valve question

A ratchet strap and carefully pry it open enough to slip the blade in. Be sure to use lots of plumbers grease.
