RE: Looking for options

we realy do like the 992Steve Going on 6 years with our 992 in a 2005 F350 SRW. To each their own:) did you modify anything? Steve Per my signature "19.5" Tires + LoadLifter 5000 Rear Air Bags" If I had to do it over again, I would go with "All Terrain" 19.5" tires instead of the "Highway" tread, as the Highway tread doesn't provide sufficient traction on wet ground.

RE: College Football Is Just Around The Corner, Can't Wait!

Tulane, Oregon, Oregon State, LSU and Boston College require all fans to be vaccinated. Missed it by that much! Attendees at designated university events and activities, as defined by the university and in consultation with the local public health authority - will be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test within the prior three days. Examples may include select concerts, conferences, and all Oregon Athletics events. https://coronavirus.uoregon.edu/vaccination-university-events Bagman - sorry(not sorry) for your Buckeyes! Go Ducks:)

RE: Limp mode in Ford diesel vehicles - how prevalent?

I have a 2005 Ford F350 SuperDuty 6.0 Diesel. About 13 years ago an "over boost" condition(my fault) sent it in Limp Mode. I babied it to a point where I could pull off the road and it came out of Limp Mode after I shut off the engine and subsequently restarted it. Ford replaced the turbo under warranty. Hasn't ever gone into Limp Mode again.

RE: Bathroom access on the road

It will prob take 5 seconds to get the slide open so you can use. it. This is a subject that isn't worth talking about. What is the big deal about 5 -20 seconds to access a TC. I can open both of my slides in 9 seconds. I open them at the same time. I am always in a hurry but a few seconds is not worth talking about. It takes longer than that to walk into a public rest room. Enjoy all that slide outs offer, and they offer a lot. X2 Yes, I have forgotten to put the slide back in after using the bathroom, but when I check my side view mirror and see the slide out, I have to get back out. Now I just make a mental note when exiting the camper to put the slide in. There are lots of pull outs on the road where there is plenty of room to stop and put the slide out. This shouldn't be an issue when considering a TC.:C

RE: Favorite foods to make bulk and freeze for the road?

You can now get pressure cooker/air fryer combo units. You can also get a retro fit lid for Instant Pot that converts it to an air fryer.

RE: Arctic Fox camper electrical issue

Not sure about your 1150, but our 992 has a switch on the wall just before the sleeper. Actually, there are two switches. One controls the outside scare light and the other controls the sleeper lighting and the roof fan.

RE: One jack not functioning AF811

When was the last time you changed the battery in your wireless remote? Mine has to be replaced about every two years. I know its time when the jacks start to act wonky.

RE: Buying a new TC

Unless you camp where there is 120V(30A) electric service OR have a portable generator(or onboard generator)which will handle the electric load that AC will be pretty much useless for you. You should be able to use the electric fan function of the AC from your 12V camper battery.

RE: Speaking of large batch cooking-freezing leftovers?

Freeze in individual serving size vacuum seal bags. Vacuum seal when frozen. If you buy seal-able bag material that can be boiled or microwaved it doubles your options for reheating.

RE: Do I need my fan on when cooking in the oven?

And for another point to consider. You might think differently if you have a CO detector with a digital readout. The only time it has gone off in any of our RV's is when the oven was on and no ventilation. I do have a digital readout CO detector and the amount of Carbon Monoxide generated by the oven is scary. Probably why they have a warning about using the oven for "comfort heating". If you don't want to run the fan, just leave a couple windows open slightly(1/4" to 1/2"). You will be fine.

RE: Quiet heater that doesn’t drain batteries ?

I have been using a Wave catalytic heater for seven years in our RV's. First in a 5th wheel and now in our truck camper. Yes, I use it while sleeping. Yes, I am aware of the risks and choose to use it responsibly. Hi Don! I'm still alive:) There are literally hundreds of thousands of products that can kill you(or not). Just look how many items carry the California Prop 65 warning. Given some naturally occurring chemicals found in the State of California I am surprised no one has insisted that California be labeled as containing “chemical(s) known to the state of California to cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm.”

RE: Does anyone use an aftermarket Tire pressure system?

Count me as another satisfied EEZ TPMS System user. I like that it gives you both tire pressure and temperature information. I have it on all the tow vehicle and trailer tires. I did have to add the repeater as the aluminum frame of my truck camper blocked the signal from the boat trailer tires. It has worked flawlessly with the repeater.

RE: Oven ignitor

How much heat can an ignitor take before it burns up? I frequently do a baked potato at 425F for over an hour and it hasn't been an issue. I did cover the oven igniter wire with heat shielding. For you that have installed one yourself, has it lasted? It's been over 2 years and has worked flawlessly.

RE: Oven ignitor

Like this? https://live.staticflickr.com/1862/44373775741_369f2676f2_c.jpgOven Igniter~1 If you click on the picture it will take you to a video on Flicker. If you are reasonably mechanically inclined you can do the same thing. As others have indicated it involves replacing the "click" igniter that lights your cooktop burners with a piezo igniter that has four wires(three for the cooktop and one for the oven.)
