RE: Cheater adapter to run 50 amp

If you are just trying to connect to a 30 amp circuit use a simple 50 amp to 30 amp adapter. If your trying to take advantage of the additional 20 amp outlet I suggest: RV safe power transfer switch. Works with GFI outlets The RVsafepower switch allows me to use both A/C's on 30 amp sites.

RE: New style entry steps

don't know, i have the exterior kwickee steps but is dusty areas, or tiny gravel/sand, twigs etc it all ends up on my inside steps anyway it is going to be tracked in . regardless unless you take your shoes off outside If you think you have a lot of debris inside you rig now, try bring the entire step into the trailer and flip it over....you'll have even more. Bringing exterior step inside is just a bad idea from the start

RE: MORryde step question

Wow and I thought the fact that they dumped debris and water into the rig when retracted was an issue. Not being able to close the door is a serious deal breaker. If you are prepared for it, it's really not an issue. It just takes a little time to learn the limitations of your rig and to analyze the campsite parking pad slope quickly. And to have enough lumber to accommodate any situation. I don't disagree that the challenges of MorRyde steps can be overcome with enough effort. However Glowsteps by Torxlift deliver the same stability without all the challenges. With GSR's there is no sweeping or wiping off. The steps stay on the exterior where they belong. They are very adjustable and can be leveled in many ways. For me the negatives of the Mor Ryde steps outweigh the positives. They create as many problems then they resolve I was never really crazy about the idea of bringing exterior steps inside the RV. Now add in the fact that under the wrong circumstances you cannot close the door!I'll pass on the MorRyde steps there is a better mouse trap available

RE: Best Location for MaxxAir Covers?

I don't want to cover every vent, So, thoughts? Where would you locate them? Why don't you want to cover every vent? Surely not the cost of the covers? The simple solution is to get 2 more covers. If money is the issue use the 2 you have in your most used locations and save up for 2 more.

RE: 5th wheels....heck of a following

Jay 58, just curious as to what made you decide on going 5th wheel as we had been contemplating going motor home? If you care to share While I consider a 5th wheel to be more work and less convenient than a motorhome. A 5th wheel provides equal amounts of space to a class A and cost a lot less. A 5th wheels gives you more bang for the buck. The downside is 5'er is not as user friendly as a motorhome.

RE: mild rant, contractors and repair folks

In 2001 we had a large addition put on our old farm house. In 2017 we had some major storm damage to the inside and outside of the house. Contractor that did the addition told me "we don't do insurance claims, we are only doing new construction or new additions". They lost my business and referral forever. Really? Are you not going to refer a plumber because he doesn't want to do your electrical work? Yes I know it's not quite the same but insurance work can be a entirely different animal and there are companies that specialize in that type of work. You cannot penalize some for not wanting do it. Dan This is the perfect example of how some customers refused to be or become satisfied. The customer in this case has an unreasonable expectation of services which they feel entitled to. Its the same thing as if a mechanic added a stereo to your old beater car 20 years ago, but now the same mechanic doesn't want to do body work on your brand new Tesla. 16 year later, you call a company to ask if they do something entirely different than your first experience and they turn you down? I surely don't understand why you'd be upset. When I first started in business, I'd take almost any job in my field, even those that didn't have much profit. Now, about 12 years later, I wouldn't even give those same jobs the time of day. Its not worth my time or effort anymore. So does that mean that when the economy turns, I'll be hurtin? Maybe, maybe not, but it won't be because I chose to quit doing tiny projects in order to focus on larger, higher profit jobs. Correct and this is why contractors don't waste their time even trying to appease/satisfy some customers. There are good and bad contractors and there are reasonable and unreasonable customers.

RE: Good Sam roadside failed us again!!!!

Some of you guys are full of it! Good Sam has a contract with the OP to provide road service. Good Sam failed! Good Sam failed. I don't know why you guys want to excuse them. Good Sam is in the business of providing service to RV's, not just passenger cards. Good Sam is fully aware that they will be providing service to everything from a pop up or teardrop to a 45 foot diesel pusher motorhome. Why do you guys think that it something extraordinary to expect a company that specializes in non traditional road service to properly vet their contractors to ensure that they are equipped to handle the requirements of the job? I totally agree with your point. But in the brochure everything is perfect and every shop is competent. But once you understand every service provider is not vetted by Good Sam , Coachnet or anyone else you will adjust your thinking. Travel on Holidays, Sundays or weird times and competent service providers will become scarce. GS,Coach Net can't save you from reality. If you are in the middle of nowhere service is also scarce. Have anything other than a basic vehicle and you may want to have additional tools with you. GS is not an excuse to not keep your vehicle roadworthy. Yes GS is a good service to have, however helping yourself is not a bad idea either

RE: Why 4.1 axle?

No matter how the weight compares to the rating, for a given weight, all other things equal, a higher numerical rear end ratio will put less strain on the rear end housing, the rest of drive line, and the part of the frame that joins engine to rearend. This is the reason the manufacturers change the ratio when they change the rating. Sure, a higher load will add more stress but... C Same here...as long as you are within ratings, the extra strain has negligible effect on the drive-train. As long as the drive train has the correct gearing. A 2"x4", a human arm or a gear can all handle a certain load. However as that load increases you may need to upgrade to a 2"x6", a bigger arm, or a stronger gear. They all have limits. What often lost in the comprehension is that the limit is determined by the weakest link.

RE: Carolina Pines RV Resort Myrtle Beach

I Understand you disappointment however a place to stay without full amenities beats no place to stay at all. At this point if you can't find anything else why not just stay there?

RE: OH Happy Day... for now..... only 2 cents apart

It dropped to $2.50 a gal here at a couple stations. However at other station it was $2.89. I can’t understand how stations a couple miles apart can be that far apart on prices! Diesel is around $2.75. I have wondered about the pricing differences as well. I think it has to do with what price the station purchased their fuel at. They can't begin to sell the lower priced fuel until they sell all of the more expensive fuel previously purchased. A high volume station will sell through their supply faster consequently their prices will adjust faster.

RE: Amazon Prime and Alexa

You have sort of created your own mess by sharing an account vs. paying for your own. My best advice is to start fresh with your own account. Yes your data may be lost but that data belongs to the original account owner.

RE: How long should drums & brakes shoes last?

After installing disc brakes I realize how poorly/terrible magnetic drum brakes perform. Disc brakes will transform the entire towing experience. Secondly a vehicle with an exhaust brake will deliver a better braking experience vs. a vehicle without an exhaust brake. A disc brake RV pulled by a exhaust brake vehicle will brake significantly better than a magnetic brake RV pull by a non exhaust brake vehicle. There are ways to improve braking performance. It starts with getting rid of those magnets!

RE: It sure is complicated.

They over complicate things because they think their way is better not because they dont know how. . Sometimes life over complicates things. When it comes to camping. IUt be nice if we didn't need WD hitches, air bags, air hitches, surge suppressors, inverters, converters, jacks straps,blocks,gensets, extensions etc.... you name it. It can be as simple or as complicated as YOU make it. My goal is to relax when camping, some of the above items help me to relax on the other hand some of those gadgets can cause lots of grief. Unfortunately there is always dichotomy. One step forward can equal two steps backwards.

RE: It sure is complicated.

A lot of people make it more complicated that it needs to be. Its camping not rocket science here. Camping is not rocket science,but there is certainly a learning curve. There are a lot of aspects to learn. You do need to pay attention and being handi helps. Most of it is common sense. The real question becomes? How common is common sense?

RE: storing power cord on new f'ver

I grab one end of the cord....then the other...drag those to the storage and place the ends in the compartment first...then pile the rest on top. Always the last in and first out. Works for me :) Funny but that is basically what I do. I just put the cord in last on top of everything else. No need to coil it or spool it or put in a bucket! It's not that complicated. Just toss it on top at the end of a trip and pull it out 1st at the beginning of a trip I guess you and Learjet never boondock, where you don't need the cord but need stuff under it. :B Lyle Correct I don't boondock often, but on the rare occasion when I do I just move cord out of the way by tossing it on the ground!
