RE: Do you need Commercial Plates in NY to tow a trailer?

I would bet that passenger cars are allowed to tow things, so why not your funny looking big passenger car?

RE: 12 volt DC problem

It is someplace well hidden with no access and I'll have to remove some wall panel or shelf to get to it. Any one with a 37 foot Forest River Wildlife trailer with a 50 Amp service know where it is ? Guy Turn on many 12 volt items and listen for the fan.

RE: Drill Holster (tip)

There is no reason you have to have the stabilizers down before SHE can go inside. If it is late in the day, I might wait till after coffee the next morning.

RE: Quality Decline since Covid

Wait till you find that those "lightly used" trailers are heavily abused by novices.

RE: Propane regulator?

Use the yellow Teflon tape on gas fittings.

RE: Battery origin

Well, it does have a 3 year replacement/ 2 year prorated. Yes, they did replace the batteries, but after sandblasting and painting battery trays and two destroyed windshield washer pumps, I had enough.

RE: Battery origin

Apparently the Walmart buyers will go to the ends of the earth to save a dime on their product offerings. I suspect that they really beat on the battery suppliers and may explain why I had multiple battery failures. I won't buy another.

RE: Plumbing pressure relief

Accumulator tanks are now required at the hot water outlet pipe of water heaters on residential construction and when replacing WHs in existing homes. I believe that is local codes, it wouldn't make sense for those on a well with an open system that has no check valve after the tank. A "properly" installed water well WILL have a check valve at the pump. Never want water to flow back into your well. My well driller put a check valve above the submersible pump down the well.. I have an additional check valve between the pressure tank and well head for good measure. Correct, the check valve(s) is on the PUMP side of the tank, not on the HOUSE side. The tank has the air pocket to keep pressures from going too high. What I said before is correct.

RE: Toilet Mystery

I didn't see where he ever drained the fresh water tank. Just because he "never" uses it doesn't mean that it is empty. A faulty check valve or other faults can fill it when connected to city water.

RE: Plumbing pressure relief

Drain the water heater and refill it, that will re-establish the air pocket in the tank and allow for expansion. See your water heater owners manual for more information. Or just turn off the pump and drain a small amount out. Then turn the pump back on without using 6-10 gallons of water. I didn't want to get onto it, but since the air dissolved into the water tells me that draining and flushing is way overdue.

RE: Trailer hitch pin

As far as strength of the hitch pin goes, don't know exactly, but the same diameter pin is used for 2x2 and 2.5x2.5 hitches.. Just the length of the pin is longer for the 2.5 hitches.. Can't say for sure on the 3x3 hitches but I suspect most likely the same diameter to allow compatibility for using an smaller hitch accessory like a bike rack or lighter weight hitch via adapter sleeves. Nope, the 3" uses a 3/4" pin. I think that most are using a 5/8" and that is unsafe. Those using adapters would need to drill the holes larger on the adapter and the shank, do you think that ever happens?

RE: Busted!

Took the cover off today and towed the trailer over to the storage place. Replaced the cover and left it there. I feel a little disoriented, but at least my neighbors can enjoy the look of the neighborhood again. -Speak Now for the next few months you can cut the offending trees about 1/4” at a time during the very early hours. Very old chainsaws without mufflers are an excellent choice.

RE: Smartplug Converstion

My trailer came with a twist lock detachable cord. I had failures with the blades in the cord end, the wires loosened in the inlet and the cheesy plastic ring was troublesome. I installed a locking hatch and modified it to exclude pests, then hard-wired a cord. You can argue about the merits of various contacts all you want, but I prefer a continuous wire where it passes thru combustible materials. Pulling out only what I need, easily wiping the cord clean and no need to carry and find a storage place are additional benefits.

RE: Anyone rent out their camper?

I have rental houses. I would set fire to my camper before I would rent it out. It is unbelievable wha people do to rental property. I have one rental house, if it caught fire I wouldn't call the fire department.

RE: Arctic package black tank valve not shutting

I don’t believe that anyone mentioned another possibility, manufacturing debris such as the cutouts for the tank, can be left inside and find their way to the valve. You will know when the valve is removed.

RE: Slide rubber

My rubbers on top of each slide has deteriorated. sides are fine. any suggestion other that totally replacing them. need to keep that rain out I have no suggestion since they are spent.

RE: Arctic package black tank valve not shutting

Most cable systems on bikes only pull the device, a spring returns things to the original position. The dump valves depend on the stiff cable to push the blade shut, ever try pushing a rope? No lube is recommended. My thought is that there are many installations where the cable is bent too much, the specifications are in the installation manual. To add to the problem, "stuff" can flow into the area where the blade is pulled when the valve is anywhere but completely closed, IMO that is a design defect.

RE: Looking for portable electric space heater for rv!

heaters but breaker is constantly tripping because of current overload. Well the solution just appeared from Mr. Heater a portable propane heater that utilizes the small 16 oz Coleman propane bottles. the heater is designed and certified to operate inside. Burning fuel inside will result in added moisture and condensation, so watch for that.
