RE: Fuel consumption too high?

Umm…didja notice the question mark? Not a statement, maybe a rhetorical question. Yes it was meant to be rhetorical. Good catch Kip! So many just jump in, with no reading comprehension, or skip over posts, and then miss the point of discussion. As threads progress, often times the entire subject may change. All good though, as forums are a source of information and opinions. Jerry All true, Jerry. Can be very entertaining, also.

RE: Tandem axle vs single

Usually a lot more cargo capacity.

RE: Holding Tank Terminations

Actually, dumping the black tank first, then having the gray tank go through it could make sense.

RE: Australian all Electric Family Off Road Caravan

I would guess that the Australian engineers know just a bit more about their trailer than you do. Just a guess, but I could be worng. The "engineer" (if there even is one) puts in whatever the marketing department wants. The marketing department has absolutely no idea what actually works in the real world - only what they think they can sell. The RV industry is rife with examples of bad ideas, and bad implementations of mediocre ideas. If you think the mere act of introducing a product automatically makes it a good design, I've got some Chevy Vegas I'd like to sell you. Ha, ha, ha. Whatever you say, sir.

RE: Australian all Electric Family Off Road Caravan

Too bad some folks can’t just appreciate some things without trying to tear them apart. Pointing out obvious flaws isn't "trying to tear them apart". What's really too bad is the way some folks overlook major problems with solar systems, simply because they want solar to work as well as the alternatives. The emperor has no clothes. I would guess that the Australian engineers know just a bit more about their trailer than you do. Just a guess, but I could be worng.

RE: Australian all Electric Family Off Road Caravan

Very cool. As usual, the Aussies produce another outstanding RV. Too bad some folks can’t just appreciate some things without trying to tear them apart. Same thing happened on here with the Bolus. I hope Robert keeps posting new and interesting stuff from down there.

RE: Half ton towing

I am not a weight nut. Last week I towed about 5000lb trailer with my F-150 and it towed better than anything I have towed in years. Real eye opener as I have always said "you never have to much truck". I have been accused of being a member of the weight police. I do believe in the math when figuring out what can be safely towed. Kinda dumb not to. Just because I got away with doing a boatload of stupid stuff doesn’t mean I should keep doing it. Anyhow, in all our travels, I haven’t seen a destroyed half ton or a demolished trailer. I know it happens, but I have seen bunches of wrecked semis. Go figure.

RE: Grey tank ABS pipe leak

I found a miracle tape to fix a similar leak when 2500 miles from home. Same small drip. Silicone tape was the answer. As you wrap it tight is fuses itself to the layer before it and has crazy pressure stats. It's made by several different companies and is available at WM, hardware stores, and of course Amazon. The link below is the Rustoleum version but there are several others. I always travel with some now. It's called rescue tape. clicky I also keep this on hand, house and rv. I “temporarily” fixed a drain pipe 5 years ago with rescue tape under a vanity.

RE: Half ton towing

Gosh golly gee Batman, there must be thousands and thousands of overloaded Silverado’s, F150s, Ram 1500s and Tundras pulling trailers out there. Ohhh, the humanity!

RE: Do I need my WD bars just to move in the driveway?

some of you really need to go back and re read the op's original question before pontificating. :B Yup, it's not like the guy is doing 60 MPH in his back yard. Amen

RE: RV Queen mattress

Made in Merka bed in box from Amazon. Can’t remember the name.. With a 3” topper, very comfy.

RE: Getting my trailer settled for the winter

Stabilizers are not meant to take weight off the suspension. That’s a good way to twist the frame.

RE: TV

Antenna but the TV has only been on once in the last 2 years.

We carry 3 kayaks on a ladder rack.

RE: Add Awning To Slide?

Don’t see why not. A lot would depend on the skills of the installer. My question would be what is the effect on the slide when the wind buffets the awning? Is there room to add the awning over the slide so it is attached to the trailer?

RE: Running lights on cars

It seems I have found more nonsense than common sense in my post. The idea that on sunny day the lights would make a difference maybe not so much but on the gray day in a misty rain near dusk they definitely could save many lives and do. All GM products have had them for years but the other American vehicles don't it seems. I really can't believe some of the reply's here as being nothing short of nonsensical. After 16 years on this forum, you oughta be pretty used to the nonsense meted out. ;-)

RE: What causes soft floors

Our camper has a sandwich floor and there is a tunnel in it for wiring to go to the other side from the load center. It definitely deflects when stepped on but hasn’t gotten worse over the years. You may be seeing the same thing in some of the units you have looked at.
