RE: Thermostat: Heat/cool 1 area. Anyone switch to Digital

Swapped out for digital on the last two trailers. Well worth it. This one has the in command system so no need to swap.

RE: Star Trek fans

Our previous tt was named Galileo. A very worthy name for a not so worthy trailer. At least it was ok for transport to remote locations. I do have "Incoming communication on a secure channel" as my ring tone and the sound of a communicator opening as the sound telling me I am getting a voice mail. Don't have anything that looks like anything Star Trek but did do some work on the golf cart one time to make it look like the Flintstone mobile for a parade. Makes life lighthearted and fun. Good for you! If life isn't fun, why bother?

RE: weight dist chain replacement

Or go to a marine supply and get stainless chain. It will always look good.

RE: Weigh safe trailer ball with built in scale. Any comments?

Then get a Sherline tongue scale. Put the tongue on it and load away. When done just hitch up like normal.

RE: CT service plaza question

Drive at night and park during the day. You will not be overnighting then.

RE: Extension Cord Useage - Guage

The size depends on what you plan on running and what you are plugging into. If you are plugging into a 15 or 20 amp circuit you are limited right off the bat. I would not consider using anything less than a 10 gauge extension that is as short as possible. That would cut down on voltage loss. If you have a 30 or 50 amp socket you are plugging into get a matching extension as it may be handy in some campgrounds.

RE: Why put the fridge in the slide out?

Also agree with NRALIFR. I will not consider any trailer that has more than just an outlet in the slide. Anything like gas and water and drains that flex will have many more issues than fixed lines. Period.

RE: 1/2 ton towing a 5th wheel

Gvw will not be your worst problem, pin weight will. Take the gvw for the trailer and figure on 23 to 25% as pin weight. Ignore dry weights and published pin weights as they are not real world. Take the number you got and add the weight of a hitch, passengers, equipment you added to the truck and anything else you carry and there is a good chance you will be way over your payload capacity that is on the white and yellow sticker by your door. Even with a lot of travel trailers a 150 runs out of payload before it runs out of max tow weight. Get more truck or less trailer.

RE: Vanlifers are parting ways with their vans after Covid

We can hope that with the students returning to in person learning and companies calling back workers to work in their offices we see something close to what used to be. In April we booked a trip out west to Utah and some of the spots we picked to stay going and coming back told me that we were taking the last spot available. The trip is for October! Some places we called had no sites available.

RE: House sitting

Most we ever did was swap houses with neighbors of sister in law in Australia. They used our house and we used theirs. A glorious two months! Driving did scare the **** out of me as the area had tiny roads that we would call a one lane road and they squeeze two into it.

RE: forest river salem F21

Best way is to measure it. Model numbers are arbitrary at best. My 22 footer is three feet longer overall than my 23 footer was. On edit: If it is an F21FLS it is 27 feet long.

RE: MN changing to EZ-Pass

We have used EZ Pass in NY and elsewhere since it was introduced. No matter where we go, with or without the trailer, we use the same transponder. Never had issues of wrong charges and were told by the powers that be that sensors determine how many axles and not the transponder. We do have separate transponders for each car but not for towing and not towing. Even going through the new toll road in NC one day with the trailer and two days later without it got it right. I would suspect they like making tiny amounts of money on the money that is held by the system for each pass.

RE: How best to improve a primitive RV site to rent it out?

With no electricity, water or sewer they will be a real tough sell to most RVers. Maybe if you advertise on an off grid forum you might find some takers but the sites would have to be cleared so solar would work. Sounds like they are far enough apart that nobody will notice that that the neighbors only shower once a month when it rains. Also need someplace to dump contents of composting toilets.

RE: Tire engineering question.

One of the ones that come to mind is Trailer King tires. Molded into he sidewall is "Keep inflated to 80 psi". That is on a 225/75 r15 lre tire. Had 14 inch ones that stated "keep inflated to 65 psi". Tow Masters had similar verbiage.

RE: Tire engineering question.

Most chinese tires specify that they should be inflated to max pressure at all loads. If you unmounted one and felt how thin the sidewalls are you would understand why.

RE: Jump start

Depending on where you are, any carrier might have a problem getting someone to you. My experience has shown that most of the roadside assistance companies use the same list of service providers. If there are none near you, there are none to answer the need. Another reason to have basic tools and be able to use them.

RE: Dead Batteries

There are a few items that are always using the battery. Radio presets, co detector, propane detector and on some units the main board that a remote control interfaces with. Have your battery thoroughly tested as you just might not have a useful battery anymore if it was drained too low.
