RE: Big Bend National Park - RV PARKS

In the park, Rio Grande Village has a few full hookup spots. On the west side of the park, the town of Study Butte has several RV campgrounds and numerous restaurants. There are about 125 miles of paved roads within the park. Fuel services at Panther Junction and Rio Grande Village. Convenience stores at Rio Grande Village and the Chisos Basin. Restaurant at Chisos Basin. Super busy at Easter.

RE: Hot Exhaust On Differential

Probably not an issue, but if you are concerned, you can get an exhaust turn down at the local auto parts store to direct the exhaust in a different direction.

RE: Winch Battery

Worst case - Don't think I'd want to carry jumper cables that would have to be over 20' long as I wouldn't want to try and load a car on the trailer without it being hooked up to the tow vehicle hitch.

RE: Winch Battery

The reference in the original post was for an 8000# winch.

RE: Winch Battery

JimBollman: I sincerely doubt an 18Ah battery has the oomp to drag a full size vehicle up on a trailer. Gdetrailer: Sears Diehards were manufactured by Johnson Controls. Do we know that is no longer the case? Yes, I know many batteries come out of the local region battery manufacturing plant and just have the retailer's sticker applied. (Wouldn't it be nice if there was a source that identified the actual manufacturer.)

RE: Winch Battery

Good comments thus far. Would appreciate more like MEXICOWANDERED where a specific battery is recommended. The whole point of this discussion is that I don't want to be at a remote location, trying to load up a vehicle, and have my battery **** out. (Squeezing every last minute of life out of a battery is not a goal). If a "jump start" battery is a viable option, that would be good, but I need more confidence that that would work.

RE: Winch Battery

I got a GOOLOO GP4000 jump starter lately. It never occurred to me that I could use it in an emergency to power my winch. It's rated at 500a for 5 seconds - not sure what the continuous power output could be.

Winch Battery

I have a DieHard battery, not sure what vehicle it was sourced from, that I have been keeping on a trickle charger for years. Date I wrote on the battery was 10/14. I use this as a standby battery, but primarily use it on rare occasions to power an 8000# winch on my car hauler trailer. I suspect I should really get a deep cycle battery for a replacement before this decides to die on me at an inappropriate time. Suggest a good, economical replacement!

RE: Storage RV lot with GFIC breakers

I would suggest connecting a ground wire from the chassis to the electrical ground at the supply plugin.
