RE: Detailed BLM maps of Utah (and other places, too)??

Did you try BLM Utah Interactive Map?

RE: State Bridge, CO to Kremmling

I once drove that road while we were shuttling back and forth for a raft trip on the Colorado River. That was a few years ago, but I remember it to be a two-lane paved road in good condition.

RE: Deciding on Battery Replacement

They are the UPS12-210MR. Three batteries. They were pretty well balanced intially, but now they are within about 2/10ths of a volt. They date from 2010 and 2011. On our trip in November the resting voltage of the group was about 12.8 volts.

Deciding on Battery Replacement

Hello all, my question is: What are the best way(s) to tell if an AGM battery has lost enough of its capacity that it should be replaced? (And if it's anything complicated I will probably need advice on how to do it.) Thanks for your help. (I should add that this is a group of 54 amp-hour CD Technologies Hi-Rate Max batteries that I have been using in parallel in the RV. I took them out and right now I have them in my house charging.)

RE: Best Fuel Preservative for Pure Gas ???

Thank you all, I would just like to be sure that if I occasionally forget to empty the gas out of an engine or two, or leave it in too long, I won't wind up with equipment that won't run and carburetors that need to be replaced.

Best Fuel Preservative for Pure Gas ???

I buy pure (no ethanol) gasoline that I keep on hand in a couple of 5-gallon cans for snow blowers, lawn mowers, power washers, portable generators etc. The STABIL products that I buy indicate their use for alcohol-blended fuels. Are there any fuel preservatives specifically for pure gasoline and which one would you recommend? Thanks for your help.

RE: What jack to have onboard for roadside tire changes?

Thanks for the help. The HR does have levelers, and I always have the cellphone, road service and credit card. I guess I'll just keep the bottle jack and hope that things work out if the time ever comes!

What jack to have onboard for roadside tire changes?

I have managed to travel in my HR for 10 years without ever having a flat or blow-out on the road. I have always carried a 6-ton bottle jack thinking that I would use that and boards as needed if the situation ever occurred. Today I watched a you-tube video on a blow-out incident and I am embarrassed to admit that I now realize a bottle jack will never work when a front rim with a shredded tire has dug itself down into the shoulder of the road. I suppose what I really should be taking might be a low-profile floor jack? What do you recommend as the best type of jack to carry for roadside tire changes? Thanks for your advice.

RE: Best type of house battery

I deploy my jacks with the motorhome motor still running. I imagine a fifth wheel owner could deploy the jacks and slides in the same way, so the power doesn't deplete your house batteries. I have gotten a lot more life and power out of AGM's than I did with LA batteries. The AGM's also need very little maintenance, so I think they are worth the extra cost. One hint is to look for craigslist ads for AGM's that are overstock or are being retired from UPS systems. A good way to get new or near new batteries for a fraction of the retail price.

RE: .

I just got done throwing out all of my shirts that had any logo or company name on them. I certainly would not have it on my RV.

Looking for Recommendations for a Replacement Water Pump

Hello, I need to replace the Shurflo 2088-403-444 water pump that is in my Holiday Rambler motorhome. This pump is 2.8 GPM, 4 Amps, 40 PSI and I'm looking for something about the same to replace it. I'm finding a lot of models and brands out there and I'm hoping for some recommendations. Thank you.

RE: Im in need of a 1992 Caribou Fleetwood. Truck Camper Manual

Manuals for RV's that come from the manufacturer are general and not always that helpful. The specific manuals for whatever component or appliance that is a problem are usually more helpful. What exactly is your problem?

RE: water water everywhere but not a drop to drink!

Does that filter filter out the soap and shampoo? Might be hard to rinse off.

RE: When do you throw in the towel?

I'm from SE Wisconsin. I remember our cars rusting through so bad that you could see through the holes in the floorboard down to the street. Here in Colorado my 1999 Suburban has hardly any rust at all. I decided it was in good enough shape to be worth a new engine (**** plastic head gaskets). Now that you have put so much money into yours, I would probably wait and see if the repairs hold out.

RE: Clearance lights not working

I have a line tracker/signal tracer that is really helpful for those kind of things. The one I have is made by Sperry but there are a lot of other brands and models of them.

RE: removing WELDEX back/up monitor

Check and make sure that it's not a problem with the connections or wiring. Amazon has a lot of monitors you can check out.

RE: Tilting Solar Panel

There is a video on youtube, "What effect does tilt angle have on solar panels?" By the altE store. She comes up with numbers that are a lot different. Interesting video worth watching.

RE: Restrictions on older RVs.

We camp at national and state forests and parks where there are no such restrictions.

RE: Onan QG 5500 gen set

Probably no engine damage, but you will get fouled plugs and poor running over time. I would get the smaller jet and try it.

RE: Real small motor homes; value?

You are not the only one. But there are plenty of people buying them even if they are just a toy. When we looked at out HR my wife said, "It's too big." Now she wouldn't want anything smaller.
