RE: Newbie ClassA questions - Stacker trailers

We have a Newmar 35’ with a 10k tow rating, and the GVWR and GCWR to support it. I expect a stacker with a vehicle and toys will be well over 10k unless you choose the contents carefully. I’d start with getting an accurate estimate of your anticipated trailer weight. I expect the math will lead you to a big tag axle coach, or a super C. There’s plenty of supers with 20k or more tow rating.

RE: '83 Toyota pickup start trouble in cold, wet weather

I’d still think spark problem, ether is easier to ignite than gasoline. Try a heat source like a trouble light with an incandescent bulb and leave it near the coil or distributor during wet spells. That will drive off any condensation. A heat gun if you have one or a small space heater could be used also. When you locate the part that when warm and dry cures the no start then you’ll know what to replace.

RE: Another ‘dadgum’ post re: tire PSI…please bear with me…

FWIW the recommended inflation is for that weight at maximum rated speed. There’s no need to go that fast to test your hypothesis, drop the pressure five pounds and stay ten mph or more below the rated tire speed and don’t worry about it.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Tesla overtakes GM as most valuable U.S. automaker, short sellers burned Question, what rises faster; Tesla shipments or the post counts of doomsayers?

RE: To Buy or build

I have all the skills to build one, and the time, I suppose, since we’re retired. But I wouldn’t consider it. I have built vehicles before. It’s a labor of love, but it’s not “green” nor is it cost efficient vs. purchasing someone else’s project. If you don’t want a newer, factory built rig then there’s plenty of project rigs out there that have been completed (?) and used and the owners are ready to move on to something else.

RE: Well if you have the money they will build it

Very nice. Better than spending the equivalent on a bus conversion IMO.

RE: Leveling Jack Lights Staying on When Parked

Ignition switch off then press the power button on the leveling system does it on ours. In that order.

RE: Frameless Dual Panes - Better or Worse?

I don’t know why trailer windows would be inherently different than MH windows? We’ve had both types in MH, as far as I can tell they’re equally effective. And highly recommended, for both temperature and noise moderation. A bigger difference IMO, is whether you get sliders (great for airflow but can’t be left open in the rain) or tilters ( less airflow but can be open in the rain).

RE: 2020 Ecodiesel Fuel Economy Tests

Only 100 miles. A bit of foam in the tank, or a small measurement error. No way is measuring the tank level accurate enough for that determination when you’re talking 2.5 gallons in a 33 gallon tank.

RE: Who do we notify when moderators break the rules?

Mods are a lot nicer than many other forums I’ve seen. This is just another snowflake moment. Apparently it’s okay to rant but the mods are supposed to address us softly like the tender two year olds we emulate. No. My hat’s off to anyone who takes on the thankless role of moderating a public forum.

RE: Bus crash on Utah 12

That’s a good advertisement for monocoque chassis like Prevost.

RE: closing of a complaints post

In my opinion that was nothing but a rant by someone with unrealistic expectations. There’s an old saying about how you can draw more flies with honey than vinegar. There are people out there that believe they get the most service by being nasty and abrasive and demanding.

RE: JUst how many GB are needed?

Updates to phones, computers, tablets, and antivirus will need data too. It can be considerable. Also if you leave devices connected to your hotspot while you’re not using them, they’ll sit there and update newsfeeds, and every app in the world is written to report on you back to the mothership. Apps like Facebook need to be completely killed if you don’t want it consuming data in the background 24/7. Or set all such apps to have internet access only when in use.

RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

Everyone rushing out to fill tanks as the OP advises is more likely to impact pricing than the loss of production. Same thing happens in every adverse situation / natural disaster.

RE: Danger from charging golf cart inside toy hauler??

I managed a business operating a fleet of electric golf carts. We learned to house them in metal buildings away from combustibles. Occasionally they do catch fire when charging, usually a result of a bad battery or corrosion / loose wiring. If yours is in well maintained condition then the risk is minimal. But battery compartments are ventilated for a reason. Hydrogen does go boom.

How do you manually activate it to do a brake test?

RE: Onan Generator Cranking Amps

I expect it’s a lot more than that. Cummins spec for starting batteries: 475 amps down to 0° F (?17° C) 650 amps down to ?20° F (?29° C).

RE: Traveling with glass

We carry the same foods in the MH as we use at home. Pack items tightly in spaces so they can’t move. Especially fragile items pack interspersed with softer items or towels, cardboard items etc. You can use plastic bins in the fridge or pantry to contain items. Taller items best stored laying down.
