RE: Ram trucks from 2015 through the 2017 recall

First I've heard of this. Love my Power locking tailgate though!

RE: Installing/wiring for trailer and brake controller

Get a Tekonsha controller and their pigtail adapter and the controller install is plug and play as noted above. The Tekonsha Prodigy controller is a good choice

RE: Thinking about a new generator

If you have a Costco close by you may want to check on a Yamaha 2000. They were on sale for $450 with a parallel kit. Yamaha engine yes. The rest is made by someone else. My local Costco has that genny. It's not a Yamaha genny but is advertised with a Yamaha engine. It's basically a clone of the Yamaha 2000. Looks like it would be fine.How about parts availability or service ? That's the big unknown. That's why I'd go with Champion if not Honda or Yamaha

RE: Dumb-Ass Traunts Buffalo in Yellowstone Thursday

Yellowstone info centers show a video on this topic starring a less fortunate genius; one of those 2000 lb buffaloes somehow hooks the guy with his horn and tosses him about 15 feet straight up into a tree. Actually comical to see.

RE: Honda 2000 starter rope

You are using the heck out of that thing. How many hours do you think you had on the last one?Gosh.. I've had one since 2002. I could only estimate the hours but it must be in the thousands. 2 others are only a few years old. You got me beat Oldman. Mine's from 2004. Most of the decals are worn off from rubbing in the back of the pickup. She's not pretty but she still fires up and purrs like a kitten

RE: Too late for Yellowstone?

If you are hardy, stay in W Yellowstone with hookups and commute to the Park. I love the fall and it is the best time for seeing wildlife and many fewer humans. X2. Check out Grizzly RV Park in West Yellowstone. About a mile from the entrance. Nice CG. We were there in July for 2 weeks. Getting a bit chilly now but should still have a lot to offer

RE: Do any of you MH owners use a small invertor gen ?

maybe what it has is a converter not an inverter ??? All I know is its just inside by the top step,,,looks like a plastic cover and I an hear like a fan running...what does this do then ?? We'll help you with that. Not all motor homes have an inverter. The inverter lets you run a 120 volt device like your TV off your batteries without needing a generator. You just need good batteries which you can charge up later.

RE: Do any of you MH owners use a small invertor gen ?

Nope. Not sure I would want another gen when I have an onboard one that is fed from my gas tank. I’m just thinking when parked and I don’t need the ac it’s a LOT quieter Do you have an inverter? yes the MH we are looking at HAS an invertor but doesn't that just change ac to dc ?? Im thinking of the small generator to run the tv or charge batteries Run the TV off the inverter. Charge your batteries when it doesn't matter. Generator won't help you during quiet hours when all generators must be off. That's where the inverter comes in

RE: RV can’t make it into driveway. Bottoms out hard.

You can do it. Experiment with turning in with more angle Build up ramps with wood, they will be big and heavy but who cares. You only use them at home. I store my RV on a hill too steep to run the fridge. No big deal, I just load with some ice and turn it on when I go. Beats paying for storage! X2!

RE: Confusion with Honda Generators

........ Like Oldman pointed out, I never got the logic of the Companion with the 30a twist lock receptacle that is NOT FOR AN RV. Not all Honda users are RVers. I like the twist lock 30 on my Honda 3000 even though I have to adapt it for the RV 30, so the plug stays in the Honda better. Agreed. I see the logic now, having a full 30a available instead of just 20a. I guess the twist lock also makes sense considering other uses.

RE: Confusion with Honda Generators

If you need say 25 amps and you parallel two base 2200 units you are out of luck. Their circuit is only good to 20 amps. Where companion circuit is good for 30 amps when parallel. It costs you more but gives you more abilities. That makes sense now. Still wish they would have put the 30a RV receptacle on the Companion

RE: Confusion with Honda Generators

Not sure I really understand your angst :@ - if your intention is to buy 2 gensets just get 2 standard EU2200i models and parallel them together when needed OR operate them separately as needed. Sure, the Companion model has a 30 amp receptacle but it's a standard 30 amp twist lock, not an RV specific TT30, so you'd still have to use an adapter in order to plug a trailer's 30 amp male plug into the genset. x2, Like I said ALL EU2000's can be paralleled. From the picture, it looks like ALL THE EU2200's can be too. All you need are the two little ports for the parallel wires to plug into and both clearly have that. Like Oldman pointed out, I never got the logic of the Companion with the 30a twist lock receptacle that is NOT FOR AN RV.

RE: What if you wire 12v water pump backwards?

Thanks for the info folks. I was just wondering if I did any damage having it wired backwards. Seems to work fine! BTW, I checked the brand and it's SEAFLO
Ron3rd 09/16/18 10:45am Tech Issues
RE: Confusion with Honda Generators

From my research the only difference is the 30a outlet, so no worries. And from what I've read, the 30a receptacle is not the 30 amp RV type so you still need an adapter. All EU2000's can be paralleled as far as I know. When I bought my EU2000 back in 2004, that's the only way they came, ie with the parallel ports. There was no Companion or EU2200 at that time.

RE: What ERS assistance seems to work best, and insurance

I have towing etc on my current Travelers insurance on my cars. If I settle on a MH or TT which insurance would be best ? Would Travelers my current company for my house and cars be best ? Some other ? Also I have AAA plus now but again doubt they cover a MH...im thinking IF I get one that doesn't have a spare or I have a breakdown which ERS service seems to be the best ?, Ive heard about thre different names... Thx for the help I have Progressive for the trailer and they contract with Coach Net for roadside assistance if you add that to the policy. As far as I know everybody uses either Good Sam or Coach Net for roadside assistance for RVs. There might be others but I've not heard of them.

RE: Pls explain 30amp vs 50amp wiring and breaker

You might consider 8 GA for 30 amp if it's a long run.that's what I used for a 70 foot run

RE: Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems TPMS

TST RV507 for us. We been using it for about 4 years now. Change the batteries annually and you wont have any issues at all. Oh, and you might consider using their repeater if your trailer is over 30 ft. long. Good luck and happy camping! TST 507 owner here for about 6 years. Good system but I did have to add the repeater when I went to the 35 ft trailer. The repeater is now included with all TST systems as standard equipment. It's a good system IMO but there's other good ones out there too, like Tireminder and others that folks are happy with. When I bought mine years ago there was pretty much 2 major brands; TST and Pressure Pro. Lots more choices now.
