RE: Spotted a new design for a TH - Wow, Beauty!!!

I am so jealous! Why did I go buy a camper when I could have cobbled one together from a shed and some spare parts?

RE: Tire covers

Aside from protecting the tires they are good for statements, opinions and advertising.

RE: Safety Chains Binding Between Hitch Head & Trunnion Bars

If that was my rig I would have the chain attachment point moved back a bit. That seems to be where your issued are originating. It appears that you have several inches that you can move the attachment point before it gets close to the tongue jack.

RE: Safety Chains Binding Between Hitch Head & Trunnion Bars

Been using a Reese Dual cam system since 2004 on three different trailers and almost 70k miles with no issues. It sounds like your safety chains are way too short. As suggested, pics would help a lot.

RE: Roaches ugh!

Get a pair of Jack Russell terriers! Nothing can hide from them. If that is not something that would work for you, thy Home Defense. Works like a charm. Spray it in the back of every cabinet and say goodbye to insect life.

RE: TPMS question?

TST comes with a repeater. Don't know if I need it as the unit is not long but mounted it to the inside of my propane cover. I like that only the display goes to sleep if there is no movement. We bring the display into the trailer at night and it becomes our outdoor thermometer. Just touch the display unit and you instantly have readouts on the tires. If you can get short enough metal valve stems onto your rims I would suggest the pass thru sensors.

RE: Good Sam trip planner to Garmin 770

The trips are in GPX format exported from Good Sam trip planner. If I try to plan the trip on the 770 it cannot find many of the addresses or campgrounds. I have tried making a duplicate of the Good Sam trip planner route by putting the stops into the 770 and for whatever reason it cannot find more than half of the campgrounds by name or address.

Good Sam trip planner

Hi: I enjoy how easy you have made it to plan a trip but I seem to be missing something. I download the trip files to Garmin Base Camp but cannot get them onto my RV770 gps. I tried calling Garmin and they claim that they never heard of the Good Sam trip planner. Can you offer any help? Thanks for any help you can offer, Mel.

RE: Good Sam trip planner to Garmin 770

Ok here is how it has gone so far. None of the videos address the subject and Garmin "tech support" said they never heard of the Good Sam trip planner. Has anybody ever had success doing the swap and if so, what is the secret? I have successfully loaded the files to Base Camp but cannot get the gps to recognize the files no matter where I put them.

RE: Fan Speed Control

You will find that just about every fan speed control uses resistors, not heating elements as you suggest. Unless the fan is using an integrated digital controller it will use resistors. If you don't like resistor circuits you should look for a digitally controlled fan that fits in the housing you have. I have found some on an internet search but you do not want links so you can do a search on your own. Be aware, to "save" a tiny amount of power you will pay dearly. Good luck.

Good Sam trip planner to Garmin 770

Hi all. Maybe someone with more tech savvy can help on this one. I have tried many times to follow the directions to get the final trip created in the Good Sam trip planner onto my Garmin 770. No joy ever! There must be a piece to the puzzle that I am missing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

RE: Garmin gps / used with good Sam trip planner

We use a Garmin 770 and also like the GS trip planner. So far, I have had no joy trying to get the trip planner info onto the gps. Maybe someone will come along and have the missing piece to the puzzle. Unfortunately, the trip planner cannot recognize dirt roads and a route that I have planned for an upcoming trip runs me up an 11% grade dirt road with no room for error on the no guardrail switchbacks. The 100 mile trip will now be a little over 250 miles to go around that part of the road. Other than that glitch, the planner is very nice.

RE: Need tires..Shortage..Help!

Go to the Goodyear site and order them to be delivered to your nearest Goodyear dealer. There is no shortage, the dealers just don't want to stock them. My local store said three to four months to get them. Went to Goodyear and they were at the store in five days and were only six weeks old.

RE: Route 281 Trail of the Ancients in Utah

Did some more research! The 11% grade is unpaved switchbacks. Will take 95 east then 191 to 163. Heading to Monument Valley.

Route 281 Trail of the Ancients in Utah

Is this road doable with a trailer? Rig is in the sig.

RE: 87 to 85 octane-what altitude?

Thanks RimCountry. My old truck said 87 needed but it seems they didn't think people would go up in altitude and the truck ran quite a bit cooler at altitude with 85 and had no loss of power. Did research back then to see what reality was and doing it now for the same reason

RE: 87 to 85 octane-what altitude?

We run the same engine as yours on low-test, we live at 6200', make weekly runs down to 1400' and back, no knocks, no pings, no problem. Thanks for the info. I am presuming you mean 85 octane when you refer to low test. That would be good info as the concern is about running too rich and cooking the exhaust system. We were behind a guy pulling a trailer about the same size as ours just west of Denver in 2005 and his exhaust got so hot the truck caught on fire and was totaled. We managed to get his trailer unhooked and gravity helped us roll it back and out of harms way. It was not a good day for him. I guess I could also run it on E85 as it is capable of that but that has another set of drawbacks.

87 to 85 octane-what altitude?

Hi all: taking a trip out West for the first time since 2005. That was done with a 2004 truck and we swapped over to 85 octane at Colorado Springs before taking 70 through Denver and beyond. We are taking a more southern route this time with a 2018 truck and I was wondering if altitude matters anymore with the newer engines as we will still be up a ways in altitude, just not as much as going over the Rockies. Thanks in advance for any helpful input!

RE: 50 to 30 amp dog bone

With a dogbone you will be fine. Not so much with the puck type adapters. Lots of people use a 50 to 30 to get around the worn out and loose 30 amp sockets in a lot of pedestals. You will still be limited to 30 amps of usage but your connection will be solid.
