RE: No Propane Flow to RV Appliances

If you just turn on the propane valve and its to quick, it will set the emergency valve on the tank. Turn off the valve on the tank, let it set a few seconds and turn on slowly. Turn it off and do it again. This has happened to me on most every rv I have owned over the past 30 years. Again, turn off the propane on both tanks also make sure your valve near the regulator is turn the proper direction. It should be able to be set to one tank or the other or both tanks. Regardless, pressure is my be on tripping the emergency valve on the tank or the the valve is set wrong by the regulator. Sorry folks for any bad grammer, we are out camping and hard to see on phone!

RE: Ice cream?

No problem here keeping Ice Cream. Suggestion is to freeze a couple of small butter tubs of water and place those in the freezer after 24 hour cool down on the fridge. I know it takes up space but it will help take down the temp a few more degrees. We keep sugar free popsicles and a half gallon of Blue Bell in ours when we go camping. 105 degree weather like now.

RE: Bedroom AC?

Mine is not ducted. So we place a fan and blow it down the hall and stairs. Makes a BIG difference.

RE: Ford F-350 hitch adapter kit uncertainty

I have a Husky 16k hitch and a 2015 F-350 with the Adaper that Old-Biscuit shows previous. Works like a charm, my rig is level. Easy in, easy out. Just made a 1500 mile trip to Big Bend, not a problem. I actually have been using this adapter in my previous 250 and moved it to this 350. Total miles pulling with the adapter is well over 15k. I would do it again if needed.

RE: Low Heat Output

Last April, while Camping at Texas Motor Speedway. We had the issue of warm air but not very hot and took forever to warm. Stove seemed good, fridge on gas was good. There was a guy in the camp that was an RV Tech. He looked at it and said to go to Camping World and get a LP regulator. We did and it took care of the issue. Just a thought. Everyone talking about pressure and all kinda rung a bell.

RE: 5th wheel age, how old is to old

My DW and I were talking about this and the only downside we can see to buying older, meaning older than 8 or 9 years, is some RV Park\Resorts will not accept 10 year old and older RV's. We have never been turned away, even when we had a 5er that was 12 years old at the time. In all the RV's we have owned over the years, the late 90's to early 2000's were probably the best built and most comfortable. I would buy an older one, which means over 10 years old, if the price was right and it was in great condition.

RE: Sensor Cleaner

We use Calgon water softner right at the beginning of an outing. It does help by allowing things to slide a little better. Not perfect but with easier to rinse out in our opinion.

RE: Safety at Big Bend National Park

Hey Folks, if everything works out (you know what I mean), my daugher and son in law and my wife and I will be taking our RV's to Rio Grande Village BBNP in March. We were discussing today, what the weather might be from March 9 thru the 14th? And suggestions? Also when is a good time for the Bluebonnets there? We have heard Texas size stories of Texas size Bluebonnets. First time for all of us. I have traveled Texas in all corners except the BB area. Also we are not to concerned about the safety factor, but we had heard that there was an uptick in activity? With all the drama today, this may be an embellishment. Any suggestion or comments to our questions above would be so greatly appreciated.

RE: Passenger in your 5er

I placed a video camera in my 5er a few years back, just to see what was going on back there, thinking about putting the dog in that situation. After I watched the video, I was shocked at how violent it really is, mainly behind the axles. I wish I could find that video and I could link it up to share.

RE: Generator

I know you have solar and that there is some charging going down the road but if your converter is charging batteries and you do not have a "hard start" capacitor on your rig, you are probably hitting the max wattage for to long of a period of time. The hard start capacitor will shorten the start amperage as well as shorten the time of demand for the amperage for starting the compressor. I know you indicated that gas only on the hot water heater, just make double sure as well as the fridge. That altitude loss of power at 5500 ft is really not that much for a gas engine. Once you reach the 6k+ point, then it can start taking a toll. I camp every summer at 10k in Colorado and do not have an issue with my 3.5k ginny running air and other things in the middle of day when needed. Its a Champion and not a problem.
