RE: Zero-G water hoses

RE: Am I making a mistake going with a heavier, thicker bumper?

I carry one bike on the front of my '05 Trail Cruiser. There is room between the batteries and propane fibreglass cover (not a slide over, actually attaches to the TT), the other is a fold up 12 speed from Camping World, just throw it the back of the Suburban. Just don't like bikes hanging off the back bumper where they can be damaged.

6 volt batteries, discharge limits

I looked thru the search field but as usual couldn't find my answer. I have just bought two 6 volt Deka batteries from Lowe's. Haven't used 6 volts in years so can't remember how deep you can discharge them before ruining them??

RE: Slide Out and Hot Water Heater Not Working

AHA! Atwood, that's your problem. I have had nothing but problems with every Atwood appliance I've ever had. Two water heaters had propane, burner problems. Furnaces give up and sound like a super sonic jet when they fire up. Get a Suburban. Neighbor had an Atwood furnance in her park model (we live in a gated RV park) and we also live in a park model. We have a Coleman furnace. Since the neighbor is Canadian and doesn't come down in the winter, I've had to call the service guy two winters in a row to fix her furnace. Nothing but hassles with Atwoods. They should not be allowed to be on the market.

RE: 6 Volt Interstate batteries

Thanks to teejaywhy bought a couple of Deka GC 15's for the $144 each. They are rated higher than the Les Schwab's I was looking at. After I added water and charged them up, connected them to the TT. Right now we are sleeping in the TT as the new short queen mattress we bought a week ago showed up as a short king size. I had built a bed frame for our park model bedroom so we got rid of our old old mattress expecting the new mattress within a week. Figured we'd sleep in the trailer which has a great mattress. Now it loooks like another week or so. Anyway, I hooked up the 6 volts and turned off the shore power to test out the batteries to see how long they'll last. I've heard its good to run them down a time or two to break them in proper. We'll see.

RE: Accident with tow vehicle right before big camping trip?

Last summer my son was towing his 19' TT with his 2005 1/2 ton Dodge Hemi and the rear end seized up for the second time (never buy one of these Dodges). He made it over Cascade Pass in Washington and found an RV park to stay in. I had to go get him. We found a rental company that rents heavy duty equipment who had a newer 1 ton Chevy with 6.0 engine and stake bed who rented it to us knowing fully that I was going to go get my son and his trailer. Darn that 6.0 engine is powerful, we were loaded to the gills with the trailer and all his stuff. So, trailer towing rentals are out there.

RE: 6 Volt Interstate batteries

Thanks to teejaywhy I have a conundrum. Lined up a couple of Les Schwab GC2 6 volts but I haven't picked them up yet. Looked at Lowe's Deka batteries and they seem to have more power, so hard to find good info on any 6 volt battery. The Deka's are also cheaper at $144 each, I think the Schwab's are $168 each. Can't get the Deka's till Oct 19th, but no hurry right now. Do the GC numbers mean anything. The Schwab is a GC2, the Deka is a GC 15, that better?? What to do?

RE: Flashing rope light

Grumpy here, my Leisure Suit was electric Blue and it would still fit. Hate those new LED's on front of some of the newer trailers, didn't think I'd get to camp amid searchlights. Dark skies pleaze. Why do some idiots think I want to listen to their music? I'm a bass player and sometimes I'm tempted to bring my bass and 4 amps and turn them up to 10, that'll fix'em. I'll turn mine off if you'll turn yourn off.

RE: 6 Volt Interstate batteries

Just got back from a battery hunt around local stores and the only one that had some decent looking batteries was NAPA at $158 apiece. Glad to hear that one of the responders liked his NAPA's. Few years back a local auto parts store used to supply golf courses with golf cart batteries and sometimes they would replace them after only a few hours use, so I could get almost new Trojan's real cheap. Not in business any more.

6 Volt Interstate batteries

I have look thru the Search field and have not found anywhere RV'ers rate the different brands of deep cycle 6 volt batteries. Here in Bellingham WA, can't find anyone who carries Trojan batteries. The most available are Interstate deep cycles. Anyone had good results with these? NAPA has their brand, how about those?

slide adjustmen

Gotta 2005 Trail Cruiser 27 QBS with a Liftco, Inc. 74" slide. When closed the upper part of the frame is out about 3/4" and can feel that the rubber gasket does not contact the trailer side. Its also higher one side. The slide works fine but I need to get it adjusted so it closes tight all the way around. Anyone know how to adjust Liftco slides?

RE: Melting wires

I've found many a loose ground wire over the many years and many trailers behind me. Probably the most important wire of the whole bunch.

RE: is forest river rockwood mini2506s a good buy

Luck of the draw. There are good Cadillacs and bad Cadillacs, there are good Chevys but GMC's are even better, there are good Yugos......, maybe not. If you find a floor plan you really like, look it over really close and buy it.

RE: Buying a TT

Your trailer WILL weigh a lot more than the advertised numbers, maybe as much as 1000 lbs. So, be sure you weigh it before trying to pull it with the 5.3. The GM 6.0 engine is fantastic for towing, find one. Those 3.42 gears won't help, 3.73 at a minimum. While it'll get you going down the road, you probably won't enjoy listening how hard the engine is working. Transmission cooler mandatory. Yes, Equal-i-zer been using one since 1988.

RE: Towing a 4500lb TT with an SUV

If you're worried about gas mileage, you are not having fun RV'ing. Fill 'er up and never look at the numbers on the gas pump. Been towing for years, started with a 1965 Chevy Van (flat front) with a 292 inline 6. Towed 24' TT's all over western USA, believe it or not always got 10 mpg towing. Current TV is '94 GMC K1500 Suburban with new 383 stroker, 9.5 mpg towing go fast as I want except for steepest mountain passes then go about 52 mph in 2nd. (Keep it under 65 mph at all times). Love our 42 gallon gas tank.
