RE: How fuel stabilizers work...or not

Ethanol goes by the common name alcohol. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ethanol Methanol is not alcohol. One big clue is its name. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Methanol Also Isopropyl Alcohol is not Ethanol. An interesting video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cC4hlcZz5DM I use non ethanol gas on all small engines. I also run the MH tank down as much as possible and add E0 gas for the winter.

RE: How fuel stabilizers work...or not

Hum.. Before ethanol gas. Tools would start on the first pull. Even if left for years un used. I do not know what else to say other than buy ethanol free gas if you want it to start next spring. That includes MH generators. I read Heet may help with water in the gas.

RE: Class C Chassis

Real sorry to hear about your loss. I have had first a Ford E350. 28’ Four Winds Chateau and then a Chevy 4500 29’ Coachmen Leprechaun. Both were used. Back in 2014 the Chevy & Ford wheel basis were an inch apart. My current wheelbase is 192”. I know my stock 4500 Chevy behaves better than a modified Ford E350 chassis in cross winds & big rig passing. It was the reason I bought my current camper. As far as foot or leg room. I can now move my size 12 shoes ninety degrees and stand up in the Chevy and enter the house over a one inch “step”. Find the layout you know is right and live with the rest.

RE: Winterizing a fridge.....

Dodge Guy is right. Every new to me camper I test to see what the converter does. Only bought one Charge Wizard so far. Topped off the batteries twice this year. One more time. Leave the fridge doors open.

RE: Winterizing a fridge.....

I empty the fridge. Turn it off & leave the doors open. I also put a towel in the freezer to absorb any liquid and remove it after it has done its job.

RE: Your "favorite" BBQ Grill, suggestions

Vector Smoke Hollow .............................. Cast Aluminum Stainless steel Ceramic coated grates What is going to rust out?

RE: Your "favorite" BBQ Grill, suggestions

I really like the Vector Smoke Hollow. Low (200F) and slow smoking does wonders for beef tenderloin, chicken or ribs. For hamburgers, brats or breaded pork chops I use the regular burners but you do have to get use to cooking with the lid closed.

RE: Is CG info available from MFG's

So you are asking about weight ratio front to rear. I missed that, I guess.

RE: Living space

My class C has an 11”x42” counter top right next to the sink & the fridge is directly across the hallway. It is one of the reasons I like the floorplan.

RE: Winterizing Travel Trailer

Always used pink stuff. Never had a problem.

RE: dometic furnace problem

Never had your problem. But you really have to open the LP valve very slowly for a turn or two. Then see if the burners on the stove are very happy. After that I turn on the water heater till it is happy. Then I turn on the furnace followed by the fridge. If you have opened the LP valve too quickly. Turn it off and wait ten minutes and open it very slowly.

RE: Winterizing TT for 1st time and have a ??? about the toilet.

Never did air only to winterize. The toilet has to have some RV antifreeze in the bowl.

Why is this CG important?

RE: Thinking about buying a class c

Things to look for I have found value in while having in a class C …. Walk into shower. Some showers you have to step up to get into them. Corner shower, some are bigger than others. Big ones are real roomy inside. Wall switches for turning lights on & off. Counter space by the kitchen sink for food prep. Large outside rear storage. They can be up to 100cu ft. No window over the headboard of the bed. Livable with slide(s) in. A north south bed that is offset to one side. That gives you room to walk & dress on one side. 60x80 real queen bed. Uses standard bed sheets and such. Ford E450 or Chevy 4500 chassis. As a Ford guy, I have found the Chevy better. Hate to admit that. Just a comment. All class Cs have an overhead above the cab designed to be a bed or audio center. It is a great place for storing things. My current rig has lots of storage behind the TV in the overhead area.

RE: Foolish Things We’ve Done as Kids

How about seeing or hearing (I think Super Man, maybe the Shadow) going through a brick wall and trying to do it. I had to be two or three. Still here…

RE: 32 Foot Class A vs 32 Foot Class C

I had a 36’ gas class A on a Workhorse chassis. Down sized to a 29’ class C on a Ford chassis. Then traded that for a 30.5’ class C on a Chevy 4500 chassis. The Chevy has a smoother ride and handles cross winds better than the Ford. I really like having three doors to get out of the RV. It is so nice to pull up to a gas pump and just open the door and get out. The cab has air bags for crash protection. On my unit the difference between the cab floor & house floor is about one inch. I have outside bays I have not used. Plus inside cabinets I have not used. I found driving a class A south for four hours on a sunny summer day was not fun. Unless you had the front house AC on and those small fans mounted by the windshield running. The chassis AC was not enough to keep you cool.

RE: Breakaway Switch Confusion.

Holy cow! As I remember it the breakaway switch was a simple device that applied battery power to the TT brakes when the plug was pulled. I also remember there was a concern if you pulled the plug by accident the trailer brake coils could cook.

RE: Chassis battery

Sounds like a dead chassis battery to me. Some of them die young.

RE: A Commercial Vacuum Sealer Might Be Just What You Need

Gdetrailer I do not have to put a thing other than a filled bag on my counter top to vacuum seal it. I do not have that much counter top space for another temporary appliance. The hand held pump drops into the drawer of miscellaneous cooking tools. If I have ground beef I put the valve on a cutting board. So when I see the juices coming up to the valve and can stop the process or even suck some of it into the vacuum pump reservoir on the pump. That then needs to be cleaned. But there is no air in the vacuumed bag. I never have to freeze before I vacuum seal anything. But then again I do not freeze baked goods. Most baked goods last a good amount of time in the freezer with a normal Ziploc bag. I know it cost more. But FoodSaver figured out a different process that I really like.
