RE: Patching an enclose underbelly

On my TT the colerplast stuff was sagging , not from water or anytging , just from being bounced around. I got some galvanized corner beads for sheetrock and smashed them down and used the original bolts and washers to add extra support under the plastic sheets to hold them up nice and snug. So like horizontal cross bracing. This way it had more of a surface area to hold up the sheeting. So, maybe some tape, and reinforcement will work for you.

RE: Are RV sewer hose supports necessary?

I always use mine when set up , makes it easier. Hows that saying go, #%@! Flows downhill? The support makes it so. Also, easier to clean when done. I also have had to walk mine when they have the really high conections, not exactly an ideal task. Much easier to have gravity do the work for me.

RE: Generator Fuel Question

If using gas, and worried about the ethanol, I am and think it clogs the carbs more, you can pre treat the gas. I always add fuel injector cleaner and stabil to the gas cans when filling. This way I never forget if I need to add them later or if the stuff sits a bit. If you like the seafoam , that may work also.

RE: No 110/plug in for pop up

Your pop up has a converter and not an inverter. Unless you installed an inverter. 110 will not work off the battery. Its for dc, or 12 v stuff, like lights, water pump, and heater fan. Even if you installed an inverter, you wouldnt get much power. A converter converts 110 to 12v, a inverter creates 110 from 12v.

RE: Spare wiring behind Microwave

Does your camper have a radio/ audio system? My cd/radio wires are behind my microwave. The radio is under the cabinet next to my stove. So they feed out the side.

RE: Camping in an EV.... Always charging...

I posted this years ago here, wonder why no one added it to one of these trucks. Or if even if it generates enough voltage to use as an extender for a EV truck. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.motortrend.com/news/worksport-terravis-solar-tonneau-cover-truck-bed-power-system/amp/&ved=2ahUKEwj1wpz5vpn5AhWTkokEHRzDDSMQtwJ6BAgHEAE&usg=AOvVaw2IZ0YLdYrXWeI3-O7Xirga

RE: Camping in an EV.... Always charging...

https://autos.yahoo.com/ford-lightning-towing-test-shows-150000546.html Beat that dead horse. Go on, beat it. It's really only mostly dead. Hit it a few more times. I think I saw it twitch. Nobody is disputing that you lose range. Either you learn to deal with it or you don't buy this truck. 2030 is a long way off. Plenty of opportunity to kick the can down the road. Right now all the doom and gloom that is being predicted has yet to happen. A few stupid people can't figure out how to manage their fuel and end up stranded. OMFG the world is coming to an end! Yawn. I really have no clue what your ranting about. Yes, range is an issue, 50 percent isnt a good loss of range. To take it far isn't really feasible yet. Drive 2 hours charge up to 80 percent in two hours , drive a little less because your at 80 percent , wait two hours to charge to 80 percent again. And that would be if you managed the stops perfectly and they had chargers spaced out accordingly. It Would take me days to get to florida from nj. Might be good for short jaunts. I am not planning on buying the truck, never said I would. Just posting information. Ok, done now, please bring in the next horse. Probably splitting hairs but 80 percent charge is 45 minutes. Thats on a fast charger, good luck finding those on your trip. My rate is on a 240 plug. The type you will mostly find. If you happen to ve on a reguler outlet, then set up camp. And thats without set up time, given you have a clear shot at the charger. Sorry, I don’t follow. Why would you have a problem finding a Fast charger. Are you speaking about a specific place or trip maybe? Most places, especially when finding out of the way places to camp will not have fast chargers. In fact, where I work , they only have the mid range chargers in town, a total of 3. And thats a urban , progrssave town. Teslas everywhere, lol. No fast charging. Unless you drive out of the way to like newark Airport. Likewise for the continguious towns. While you may find them on your route, I dont think its likely. Town is small, just a major collage, seton hall, and like 18 k people in a 1.5 square mile radius. So like 18k people plus 10 k for the college for a total of 28k. Your town may differ. But I figured it was a good starting point. Not much infastruture out there off the interstate.

RE: Anderson Camper Levelers

Agreed, work awsome on smaller weight stuff. So much easier. Especially with tandem axels. Never had them slip or break. You can add a matt under them for slippage. Changing spots by me for somethibg more level isnt an option. Everything is booked way in advance. Like a year. Lol.

RE: Low tree branches in my development ..Update

If its a development, it may be privately owned. Op needs to find out who maintains the roads in his development and contact them, it could be the development owners, town, county or state. Welcome to nj.

RE: House AC went out can I hook up to 20 amp gfci

Switch the fridge to propane if you can, I dont know if I had mine on or not.

RE: House AC went out can I hook up to 20 amp gfci

As they said, yes, mine will do the 13500 ac and the tv. Nothing else. But thats all I needed. Use a large guage extention cord. The rv one is ideal.
