RE: Controller for Lithium Batteries

Victron makes solar charge controllers which have a good reputation - recommended by Battle Born for their batteries. Rob

RE: where to find replacement trailer furniture?

If you don't mind spending the money, Lambright makes some of the best. We replaced our theater seats with a double reclining loveseat to match the Ekorness Stressless recliners we have where the sleeper sofa used to be. The loveseats are wall-hugging and fit perfectly with the Thomas Payne (think "Pain") theater seats were. Lambright at Bradd & Hall Rob

RE: Bicycles

We've carried our two bikes on an RV-rated bike rack mounted on the chassis-integrated hitch receiver on the back of our two fifth wheels the whole time we've been on the road. Zero issues and no sacrifice of interior configuration or living space. We keep them secured and a good cover on them at all times (except when riding, of course). Rob

RE: using a cargo carriers on my travel trailer

If you search the forum you'll find dozens (if not hundreds) of posts on this topic. It's universally a terrible idea and a great way to leave your bumper and anything on the carrier skidding down the road with people behind you trying to avoid it. Have a hitch receiver welded or bolted to the frame. Rob

RE: Heater Specs on 2019 Palomino Puma XLE Lite 27RBQC

Anything labeled "Lite" is going to be unsuitable for temperatures below freezing. Keeping the living space warm is not usually an issue if you're willing to burn the propane. Keeping your water utilities and anything under the floor from freezing will be a much bigger issue. Looking at the specs on the 2019 Palomino Puma XLE Lite 27RBQC, I would say it may or may not even be adequate for early spring or late fall. Rob

RE: Colorado experts...help please

I have found The Mountain Directory to be indispensable when planning routes in the mountains. I have the combined East/West version on my laptop and have it open, along with Google Maps and RV Trip Wizard when planning all travel in mountains. It will give you all information on grades, elevations, restrictions (tunnels and bridges, too), runaway truck ramps - all you need to know. The Mountain Directory Rob

RE: best route, West to East?

In Utah on I-80, you'll encounter Parley's Summit east of Salt Lake City. There are long (6 mile) stretches of 6% grades. Vail Pass on I-70 in Colorado is a bit more severe with stretches of 7 miles of 7% grades. Rob

RE: 301 in Ga. and SC

US 301 is generally a good road in GA and SC. We prefer it (and other US highways) to 95 when we're not in a big hurry (which, as retirees, we rarely are). 95 is unpredictable and can be a nightmare. We don't mind seeing the countryside and smaller towns. Rob

RE: Lithium battery box temps

I use YoLink temp sensors (and leak sensors) in a number of places around the RV. This setup may not be for everyone since it requires a YoLink smart hub and WiFi/internet connection, but we are full-time and have an unlimited hotspot on all the time. The YoLink equipment is very affordable but, if WiFi and internet are an issue, there are plenty of good alternatives for weather units with multiple sensors available on Amazon, or at your local home improvement store. The advantage to the YoLink stuff is that there is a phone app and the hub sends me alerts if there are leaks or if the temp drops below my set point near the water utilities in the basement. I no longer have a temp monitor in the front compartment with the batteries since I have thermostatically-controlled heating pads on two of them and the two newer batteries are the internally heated ones (all Battle Born).

RE: Alternative to bumper sewer hose carrier

The RhinoFlex won't fit in one of the made-to-purpose under-frame tubes with the 90 deg. elbow attached, either. Like IAMICHABOD, I keep the main hose and other fittings in a large RubberMaid tub in the basement while on the road. I keep extensions in the two under-frame tubes that came on our rig. Rob

RE: Eagle vs Montana High Country vs Avenue

Have you looked at the Grand Design product line? I believe they are a bit better than the ones you listed. Ken Thanks for the suggestion. I have looked at GD, and they are in the running. There are 2 things I don't like, I don't like the dark cabinets (23's are lighter, but wanting a closeout), and I want a residential fridge, I don't trust that Furrion 12v fridge. All of the Solitudes are available with a full-size, 120VAC residential refrigerator. We have one in ours. Rob

RE: HELP: Suburban SW12DEL propane issue

I'm not sure the drip and the burner problem are related. Could the gas problem be a failing valve - like the solenoid not able to hold the valve open as long as it needs to? Do your furnace and cooktop work OK? Rob
