RE: Rear view cameras - wired or wireless?

I use the haloview wireless setup. I have a rear camera and 2 side cameras on my fifth wheel. They work great and not too expensive.

RE: 50amp surge protector ?

Before my PI I had a Camco 55306 Power Defender. It started buzzing horribly.

RE: Length and Height

The terms used in trailers are. Full Profile - these are the ones where the roof is straight across giving you the maximum height in the back of the trailers. Usually associated with high-end and expensive (usually) Mid Profile - Just like it sounds somewhere in the middle Low Profile - These are the ones with the lowest ceiling. Usually cheaper brands. That being said, this isn't usually listed in the marketing material, but the salesperson usually knows.

RE: AZ to NV, UT, ID, WY, CO and NM

Circus Circus is just a quick overnight. I thought it would be an interesting departure from the normal RV park. Maybe go in, play a little *****. They have a good steak house too. As for Kanab to 89, I've done that route before, just not with a 40 footer behind me. It is a beautiful area. **Edit - lol, the profanity filter doesn't like the dice game where you're looking for a 7. :)

AZ to NV, UT, ID, WY, CO and NM

We're going up to Coalville, UT for a wedding in a couple of weeks. Thought we'd make a longer trip out of it. Our route is linked below. Las Vegas and Montpellier, ID are just to add a sticker to our map. Coalville is the main destination, but thought we'd take to opportunity to go see old faithful and a few other sites in the area. Lastly, although I've lived in AZ most of my life, I've never visited Meteor Crater. Thought it would be cool. Route Any comments on the route are appreciated.

RE: Attaching screws to aluminum floor joists

Thanks for all the replies. If my basement ceiling gets wet, I've got bigger problems. :)

RE: A home electrical question...

If you have a dimmer switch, especially smart switches and there is no neutral at the switch location, the dimmer could need to pass a small amount of current through the bulb to power its own functionality (Like it may have it's own LED to light up the switch). This is common with smart switches that work without a neutral wire. That small amount of current wouldn't be noticeable in an incandescent light, but may trigger a LED to glow.

Attaching screws to aluminum floor joists

Short Version - Is it ok to use self-tapping screws to attach items to the aluminum floor joists on the ceiling of my basement. Long Version - Like most basements, mine has a thin divider "protecting" the pluming and wiring from the stuff I store in the basement. That divider is only attached at the floor of the basement and on the two outside walls. In addition, they left a lot of open space in the "protected" area that can be used for storage if I clean up a few wires, etc. When I reconfigure this divider, would it be ok to attach wood framing to the underside of the aluminum floor joists to give the divider better support at the top. I would likely use self-tapping screws.

RE: TST 507 parts are expensive.

Thanks for the tip on the HD o rings. I've broken new ones from TST just trying to stretch them on. I never understood why they made them so tight.

RE: Mod a grill using 1 lb propane tanks to work with RV propane

I just use one of these on my tank. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HFRIKT8 along with one of these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N1H6LVD It's for my Coleman stove, but should be similar.

RE: Disc Brakes in along with 8k axles.

Super cool. Given that I only have a 14,500 GVWR, I'm ok with my 7k axles, but I'd love to do the brakes at some point.

RE: The Redwood has landed.

Very similar floor plan to my Chaparral. Looks great. Enjoy.

RE: New Jayco Pinnacle

Every situation varies, but maybe this will help. Our trailer has a GVWR of 14,500. Fully loaded (full tank of diesel, wife, 2 teenagers, 2 dogs, full fresh water tank) we were 20 pounds over the GVWR of our truck (2013 F350 SRW). That Pinnacle is at our GVWR without even putting anything in it. Maybe have your wife look at our floor plan. Very similar to a front living room. **Edit, our dry weight was 12,280 (5574KG).

RE: LCI Solera Awning loose on one side

I've looked at the awning tube to see if there's an equal amount showing on both sides, but I haven't checked the rail side. Thanks for the advice. Given that the motor side is loose, which way would I likely need to pull the rail side? Towards or away from the motor side?

LCI Solera Awning loose on one side

I've read the service "manual" from lippert's site and didn't really get an answer. When rolling up my Solera power awning, one side gets tight before the other. Is anyone aware of any kind of adjustment for this? Of note, rolling it up backwards (keep extending until it rolls back up) does help a little.
