RE: Awning Arms and Awning

I used these guys when I had to repair the awning on my old trailer: RVParts.com

RE: Cooling fan running?

It IS possible for a Converter fan to come on without shore power. I get this when we prep a new unit and install the battery without the shore connected yet. It runs for a few minutes then shuts off. Doug PS, I doubt you have an Inverter on a 2017 Coleman trailer I have not heard it myself. I added the 2000 watt inverter with 500 watt solar. The inverter was turned off when my wife heard the fan come on when not plugged into shore power. I suspect it has to be the converter fan coming on. The way the dealer wired my solar controller it was back feeding the converter with the battery disconnected. With no shore power and the batteries disconnected the solar system would make the fan on the converter come on. I fixed it by putting a disconnect switch for the solar system next to the battery disconnect. Gary

RE: Grand Canyon to Yellowstone

Traveling in the wintertime I would take highway 64 to I40 then 93 to I15 in Vegas. I15 north through Utah to Idaho Falls ID and get on highway 20 to West Yellowstone. Summertime I would take 89 north from Flagstaff to Salina UT, then highway 50 to I15 instead.

RE: RV furniture by LCI

The sleeper sofa in my 2014 Winnebago is badly peeling and looks horrible. Have heard having it reupholstered isn't much cheaper than a new sofa but will be looking. I'm finding there aren't very RV furniture show rooms anywhere. Everything is mail order and nothing in stock so at least a month or two wait plus we cannot look at what we'd buy, sit in it etc. A quality reupholstering job is expensive, but the material used will be much better than what came on the furniture. Replacement furniture using the same material is going to have the same short life as the original furniture. Gary

RE: RV furniture by LCI

I would look for someone to reupholster the existing furniture with better materials. This will be more durable than another LCI replacement.

RE: Turning Point pin boxes on new campers!

It looks like the turning point has limited vertical adjustment. Is the one on the trailer you are looking at in the upper or lower mounting holes. The nonstandard pin box mounting makes no sense to me. Trailer life article that has a good photo of the pin box.

RE: Eternabond around cab lights

Has anyone ever used this product around cab lights? I think I may have a leak around 1 or more on my semi truck and just thought of using this stuff VS silicone. Any suggestions on using it? They make double sided eternabond, you could use it to make a gasket between the light and the cab. But honestly removing the light and using a little silicone underneath would do the same thing.

We started out in a hybrid. Had it for 13 seasons. Traveled all over the west and into Canada. In 2019 we went to a small fifth wheel. Sometimes I miss the hybrid, it fit in the back yard, the fifth wheel has to be stored in a storage lot. We boon-dock most of the time, took the hybrid places I wouldn't dare take the fifth wheel. What I don't miss it is packing up in the rain and having to open the tent ends up when we got home to let them dry. Setup and tear down obviously took a lot longer with the hybrid. The front bunk would leak when towing in the rain, I finally started putting tape in the lower corners to stop it from leaking while traveling. If I was looking for a small trailer I would look at one with a rear slide. Same benefit as a hybrid without the downsides. Gary

RE: Building my own batterty cables

I clamp the crimper to the workbench with quick-grip clamps. Put the terminal in the crimper and tighten it just enough to hold the terminal without smashing it. Hold the cable in the terminal and crimp it with your other hand. Putting the terminal in the crimper first also makes adding a terminal to a cable that's already in place on the trailer. Gary
