RE: Honda EU generators, BLUETOOTH, FINALLY!

Well, do you really need to know all that info, just something else to go wrong. An oil/hour meter would suffice.

RE: New to RV/towing. Whats my best option for a towing setup?

I sure hope all your travels are on flat ground with a good tailwind or all downhill with a long runout when your brakes go up in smoke. You can make a train move with a washing machine motor and enough gears, I don't think most of us would be still on the green side before that happens.

RE: No water pressure when connected to city water.

Agree with what other have said...assuming you bought it new, I’m betting on a debris clog somewhere between the inlet and the supply tee. Is there an in-line filter or strainer that might be clogged? Our trailer had several lines and one faucet that were slow flowing due to debris from manufacturing. I took off the strainers/aerators on all the taps, shower head, etc and didn't believe how many wood chips came out of there. The nitwit assemblers have absolutely no pride in workmanship.

RE: 2016 RAM CTD Diff Oil Change Question RE Gasket

The advice I got on my F350 was to use the Permantex Differential gasket gunk and forget the gasket. It's worked so far on both differentials Well they're not talking about fix or repair daily.

RE: No 12v input from battery, 2004 Terry Trailer

2oldman: The two 6v were in series, but one was inadvertently reversed. I assume that created a reverse polarity situation. Sorry, I don't know how to post a diagram. carringb: Wiring diagram shows a 40 amp fuse between the battery and converter but I can't find it. Believe me, I have looked and looked... Old-Biscuit: I agree. But, cant find anything like that. No 30 amp fuses on the DC Dist Fuse Panel; just 15s and 20s. I need to find the in-line fuse/breaker somehow. Thanks for all your comments and insights. If you connected the batteries neg to negative and then connected the other two terminals to the trailer wiring, nothing would happen, power only flows in one direction. Where the main RED battery wire connects at the rear or front of the DC fuse panel, there has to be a fuse. The fuse boards come that way. Maybe someone stuck a 20 in there.

RE: TV mounts

Is there nothing in the Trailer handbook.

RE: Trailer brake advice

Am I the only one who's phone sometimes drops calls. Or who sometimes needs to push button more than once to turn down the TV with remote? What the sam hill is the deal with "got to have wireless" for everything? If I want to stop, I want the brakes to work. If I need to STOP!, truck any wireless snot in that system. OP, get a good controller wire it up right. When you get your new truck, move the controller. Not brain surgery. Amen, for things like brake controllers, I believe in hard wired. Most trucks have a connector prewired to attach brake controllers under the dash by the fuse box. You can also buy the required connector for newer trucks separately so you can move the controller from one truck to another like JR said. Its not brain surgery, but some need it.

RE: Laura evacuation.

Ok, thanks for the responses. I would definitely jack up my house.

RE: Laura evacuation.

A curiosity question. It's an annual thing these hurricanes. Knock my house down or flood it once, ok, I'll rebuild it. Do it on an annual basis and why would anyone want to live there knowing you're going to get your butt kicked over and over.

RE: location of neg lead fm battery in IOTA distribution panel?

What Rhett25 said, they are too cheap to install an 8 or 10 ga. ground wire (negative) from the battery location to the distribution panel. Found the same on mine. Battery is grounded at the front of the trailer and they run another wire from the frame up through the floor to the distribution panel. Save 15 feet of wire, yet need to install 2 ground points on the frame that will corrode quickly.

RE: Electric Patio Umbrella

This looks interesting: Umbrella Motor. Hmm, auto link doesn't work so here's the actual URL: https://www.smarthome-products.com/p-282-154rc-umbrella-motor-with-touch-switch-and-remote-control.aspx You'll have to do a Copy and Paste. Nice find, thanks. I'll have to look into that one for sure.

Home Depot https://www.homedepot.com/p/9-ft-Automatic-Market-Patio-Umbrella-with-Lights-in-Jockey-Red-UARS098SJR/305050135 Ow, nice find but at $855US that's a bit over the top.

It would be on the deck at home, more or less permanent at home.

Electric Patio Umbrella

I've burned out google and the other ones trying to find an electric powered patio umbrella. They have some in the UK and Belgium but shipping would be a killer and wrong power source (220). It could be either 120AC or 12DC. Home Depot.com has a spring loaded assist one but there's too many complaints they don't work well. Situation is my wife can't squeeze anything or operate a crank with her hands, bad nerve problem. If I put it up, I have to stay around if it gets windy or heavy rain. Does anyone have any ideas. Thanks. We don't want one of those wall mounted awnings either.

RE: I've Rediscovered Butter

I have never believed that the plastic stuff that kinda looks like butter and kinda tastes like butter was actually more healthy than butter. I put butter on everything, always have, always will, if you ask my grandchildren they will tell you grandpa says everything is better with butter.:B A big Amen to that.
