RE: Generator question

Honda 3000i and you will have one of the best generators, a little heavy but will power pretty well everything including air.

RE: RV wind deflectors do they work we will see

US gallon =3.78 ltr, Can gallon =4.54 ltrs and when I said I got 16.3 ltrs per 100 that is 17 .177 mpg and that was pulling with 3.55 gears. 10 litrs per 100 = 28 mpg. Usually pull @ 1600rpm, and keep it in top gear.

RE: Battery

Had 8 Trojan 105s in the mh for 14 yrs and looked after them untill 1 shorted out takin with it the controller, mh was plugged into power twice in all that time, 640 watts of panel, so if you look after them they will last, never let them get below 12.2 volts, run 6 of the same in the fw and same results.480 watts of panel.

RE: Extended stay propane use

He will loose line pressure everytime he changes out his tank, not a very smart setup as I have used a 30lb tank for yrs and always had my main tank as a back up, and never a problem, turn on main tank, switch tank, and never lost line pressure, Just my thoughts.

RE: Dicor sealant on my fifth wheel

Cut the end smaller than a #10 wire used for solar and it will seal the tube for months. have had tubes sealed like that for years and never lost a tube.

RE: Closer to a head on then you ever want to be...

Got a 3' long scrape on the rear of our mh from an idiot not paying attention and we were on the shoulder when he went buy and that happened in Quebec City a few yrs ago, you must be on the ball all the time to avoid situation's like that can happen in a heart beat, Left the scar on the mh as a reminder to how close we came to meet our maker.

RE: How safe is etransfer - selling big items?

No problem here with the latest etransfer and it was done in minutes, as the money was in the account in less than 10 mins. quite a big one too in the thousands.

RE: Fifth wheel length question

32.5 Okanagan with 3 slides, an oldy but in mint shape 2002, a little heavy but just the right size for long camping or living if it comes to that, all solar and the rest of the electronics, do not have to plug in anywhere.

RE: Black tank flush overfill

And driving down the road for a few miles and the stuff in the tank will be easier to clean the tank, not much sticking in the tank when on the move and then dump and flush, save a lot of water and don't hold people up, Just my thought's after 50 some yrs of camping and travel.

RE: Hwy 5 to little gold and Dawson City

Tok to Dawson, have had my Mh over that road many times and also my truck and Fw, perfect rd in the summer and a short drive to Tombstone Pk.

RE: Is it time to "chip" the V-10 in an E-450 class C?

I don't know how you can drive @50mph and not get run over even on 4 lane roads, just pulled my 5th from Regina this past summer and 110kph was about as slow as i could go with out getting run over, so much for that, I have tuned lots of gas engine's in the last 50 yrs and one thing you got was extra power but milage did very little change and those engine's were done by a good engine builder in Selah Washington that are famous for the circle track racing crowd. Just my thoughts but I only pull with an ole 5.9 400hp Cummins that is chipped.

RE: Alaska 22 Prudhoe Bay on Moto, Alaska by class C

All kinds of vehicles go up and down the Dempster Hwy but it is good gravel all the way, would do it again, had the mh and the 5th wheel over the road a few times and no regrets.

RE: Can air system be used to get over low spot in a drive way?

When I bought my Mountain Aire it road like a tank, simple solution was to change over to all air system and get rid of springs, went to Freightliner and ordered suspension from a FL70 and bolted it in as the mh was on a FL frame, added a air pump and tanks and can raise and lower the mh to any position I want, 60lbs in the rear and 30-50 lbs in the front, can raise and lower it about 8-10" differance depending on load or parked and it rides like a Cadilac, no problems in 19 yrs and have only seen one air bag blown in my 50 some yrs driving over the road, they are very tough bag.
