RE: Camco RV Wall Clock

Wow, what a markup. Amazon.com sells it for $11.22. -Michael You are definitely correct Michael, just the difference in our dollar compared to yours and the better deals from Amazon.com. Do the math; Amazon takes 12% off the top of your sale. Shipping as to be about $3.00-$5.00. The seller has to make a profit. How much is left for the cost of the clocK? Must be like a $3.00 clock.

RE: Camco RV Wall Clock

Never thought of putting a clock in our trailer.

RE: Spend 400 bucks for dual alternators on new Ram build?

I went with the larger 220amp alternator option. It’s only a $50 upgrade from the factory and it’s more than sufficient to quickly charge both batteries. X2. That's what I did

RE: Refrigerator not working Norcold N611

This should not be happening. You said new trailer, it must still be under warranty

RE: Ram tire size

My Firestone original Transforce were replaced at 28,000 miles with Michelin LTX Defenders , 60,000 on my Michelins and I want some more but my Michelin dealer sez they got 10 or 12,000 left in em ! That's the same tire I went with.

Chevy Traverse, CEL comes on and flashes, no code stored

Wife has a 2011 Chevy Traverse with 85K on the clock. Yesterday, she calls me on her way home telling me the check engine light is flashing and the message, "Reduced Engine Power" is displayed on the dash. It's running like cra$ and will barely go when she hits the gas. I tell her it sounds like it went into some sort of limp mode and to pull over. She's heading down hill so she coasts about 1/4 of a mile and stops at a signal. The car is now running perfectly. She goes to her appointment a few blocks away and the car is still running fine. I come by and drop off my CTD for her to drive home after her appointment and tell her I'm going to drop the Chevy of at our mechanic about 3 miles away. Figured it at least stored a code that will tell us what's going on, ie, misfire, bad coil, etc. I start it up and it's running perfect. I drive over to the mechanic (trusted guy I've done business with a long time) to get it checked out, figuring it would store a code that he'll easily retrieve. He plugs his scanner in and nothing comes up; no code was stored! He said it sounds like some sort of intermittent misfire but he's not sure of the cause yet. I left the car with him to investigate further. This one got me scratching my head because no code was stored. Never heard of a CEL coming on but not storing a code. Any thoughts?

RE: Ram tire size

I can't comment on the size you need but will tell you the Firestone Transforce tires that came with my 2016 2500 Ram CTD were the worst original tires I ever owned on a new vehicle. Got a whopping 24,000 miles out of them and then they were shot.

RE: Mind teaser, tech issue..

It's fixed and I towed the RV last Thursday. It was the ground from engine block to computer. My mechanic found it fast, fixed it and added a ground. I'm puzzled as to why Chevy didn't find this. So was my mechanic.. Be sure to leave the incompetent dealer a stellar online review

RE: using propane for fridge

Even if you run the fridge on propane you need 12v power to the fridge. No power, no Fridge. X2. Rule of thumb: if you lose 12v power, the only thing that will work is your stove.

RE: Looking for Honda EU2200 for my RV.

I bet Yamaha generator sales are getting a nice bump while Honda sorts this out. The two makes are so close in performance and price. Yamaha only offers a 2K unit with a 79 cc engine, the EU2200i has a 121 cc engine and is a far superior genset. This is a minor bump in the road, only affects units within a certain serial number range, and will be resolved by Honda. far superior in BBQ power I'd say. Get a Champion and pocket the difference. They don't leak fuel. I have a 4 year old one. Runs flawlessly. I believe Yamaha still makes the 2400. Nice genny but not cheap. I have a 14 year old Honda EU2000 that still works like new. The Champion line is a great value with decent support and parts availability. Daughter bought the Champ 3400 with electric start for $999 online with free shipping and no tax. Nice genny but takes 2 people to lift

RE: HOW YOUR IPhone could save your life.

This is good information. I set my medical info up on my iPhone a few months ago. I take blood pressure medicine so of course entered that along with my wife and kids contact info. Anyone can access this information if you're out of commission

...also, if there is any load on the batteries, like having a light on, the panel with go to 3/4 in many cases. As others said, don't rely on the panel, use a meter.

RE: Should I replace my batteries?

It's your call but my experience is batteries always fail at the worst time.

RE: Vinyl plank flooring - snap lock with history of success?

Thank you! Allure is on my list. Donna From what I've read here, Allure also makes a snap and lock product too, but might have to be ordered. Supposedly tolerates extreme temp swings better.

RE: Is a 13,000 BTU AC enough for a 22' trailer?

We are considering a Flagstaff Micro Lite 21ds. The standard AC is 13,000 btu? Is that adequate or should we upgrade to the 15,000 unit? Thanks, Dennis Check the price of the upgrade. When we ordered our 35 ft trailer it was only like $150 to upgrade to the 15K AC. Glad we did. We had the 13.5K unit in our old 25 ft trailer and it could barely keep up on a very hot day.

If you've never had a sewer hose mishap you're not a real camper.

RE: Help with TPMS Readouts

I called EEZ TPMS support today. I was told the reason it took so long to connect to the sensors is because I began driving before the sensors connected to the monitor. I had a lot of RF interference going on is what I was told. Had I waited for connection of all of the sensors before starting on my way, it would have been the usual amount of time. I'm going to replace the batteries anyway so I know they're fresh. Thought I would share this info in case someone else has an issue in the future. That makes sense. I have the TST system and if I start the truck up and take off before the sensors come on line, they take longer to show up.

RE: Ford Diesel trucks

We are in the market for a Ford Super Duty F350. And, I'm afraid the V10 gasser is going to retire. I have really enjoyed our current truck, but we just bought a GD Solitude which weighs 2500 lbs. more than our Cruiser did. We are looking for a used truck and my question is if there are any years of diesel Fords that I ought to avoid? If you're looking for a used truck, I would ask, why limit your choices to Ford? Yes the Ford 6.7 engine has proven to be very good. And the Super Duty line has been very good overall. But the GMC Duramax or the Ram Cummins trucks are just as good. Don't limit your choices.
