RE: What size?

From the 4 trailers I've owned from various manufacturers, 1 1/16" socket has removed the anode to drain. Same here, all were Suburban heaters.

RE: Check this if you've bought a used RV recently

Don't they put batteries in at the factory? :h It is a used unit per OP.

RE: New 5th wheel hitch.

My old '97 16K Reese manual slider looks like new and works even better than when it was new. I keep it lubed and when not in use it hangs in the tractor barn. This old hitch has been on three trucks and has pulled my different 5th wheel rv trailers and GN pin trailers. I'm a stickler for maintenance so I'm keeping this one. I have had a similar experience with my 20k Reese. It is also a '97 and I have only replaced the 2 jaw springs as part of my preventative maintenance including regular inspections and lube.

RE: How fuel stabilizers work...or not

Fuel stabilizers never were designed to do much for gas with alcohol. Not so. Both Stabil and Seafoam state that they work with ethanol I have used both with ethanol for many years and have not had any issues. Haven't had to do carburetor work in decades on any small engine I have owned.

RE: Shocks F 250 Ranchos or Bilstiens?

My '06 came new with Ranchos and I never liked their ride. I replaced them with Bilsteins and also the stabilizer and it handles much better. When not towing I lower tire pressure for a good ride.

RE: Light lenses

They can also crack from stuff hitting them (obviously) and from water sneaking in and freezing. Especially the cheap ones seem to be somewhat of a wear item that periodically need replacement. I very much doubt it's due to the sides flexing; if they flexed that much, you'd be noticing that your RV's structure was made of something like wet noodles. X2 just cheap lenses. Get some spares and change as needed.

RE: 1/2T/huge TT vs strong cross wind = BAADDD DAY

Let me see if I stand under what happened; A wind strong enough to move a trailer sidewise turned the trailer into a sail, which pulled the TV crossways? And a heavier TV would solve the problem? I think a much heavier trailer would be more likely to solve the problem X2

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

Yes Bob, a lot of fancy gizzmobops but also new technology like 10 speed transmissions and turbo chargers. But also lets not forget the federal governments' requirements to make us safer and breath cleaner air. That is a big chunk of that increase I'm sure. Sure has priced many of us out a new one.

RE: Need New TV

I replaced the original television in our trailer with a 32" Visio 5 years ago and it still works well. It is not a "smart" television but is fine for us right now.

RE: Best portable heater (30 amp) for my rv?

Lots of good advice here and good brands out in the market. I have a Holmes and a 1Touch, both 1500 watts. When one of them quits I will try a Vornado. I usually run one on low all night and have the furnace set as backup, the setting depends on the overnight low. Down to about 35 degrees the furnace may come on near morning. I have used 2 heaters at times when colder but placing them can be an issue and having 2 running is a concern for us. We have been out in nights down to the high teens. On those nights We open the kitchen and bath cabinet doors to warm the piping. I haven't had an issue with the tanks with these methods. One thing I highly recommend is to run another heavy duty cord into the unit for one heater if the electric box has a 20 amp outlet. This takes the load off of the RV's circuits and makes it safer if two heaters are used. It is easy to do with slide outs as the cord can be passed by a seal.

RE: RPMs dropping uphill, Ford f-450

Since the truck is new to you is all of the maintenance up to date, especially fuel filters? Could just be something simple.

RE: How do you pay your bills on the road on extended trips?

I use my bank app on my phone as others do. If data is not available I have used a library as most towns have one and they are pretty secure.

RE: Cold-ish weather camping

We are supposed to be in Estes Park, Co next Tuesday. The Weather Channel says a high of 31 and a low of 23 with 70% chance of snow. I may push it back a day. Forecast is for 6-13" of snow in RMNP Monday thru Tuesday. Good luck!!

RE: Standard definition from direct tv

My SD still working fine X2 here.
RAS43 09/04/20 10:39am Technology Corner

manufacturer/dealer will sell extended warranty... MAKE SURE you haggle the price, they have. LARGE markup And be sure if a dealer is selling it that it is the manufacturers plan as many sell both and push the 3rd party plan as it can make them more $$$.
