RE: Maybe a new low?

I put some anchors in but don't know how much good they will do.

RE: If you bought your RV on payments from General RV.

Sounds like a great 10 year lease plan. I don't think they will want 10 year old units with that kind of balance back.

RE: Buy new now or wait until end of summer

Buy now while lots have units in stock.

Maybe a new low?

My wife has recently experienced a disability and today tried to get around in the 5th wheel to see if camping would be possible. She grabbed the handrail and it immediately pulled out of the wall. Screwed into nothing but the 1/8" Luan. https://i.imgur.com/nTZijmsl.jpg

RE: Can’t find a part

This one has outside Dim of 7-3/4" h x 12-5/8" w, Linkaroonie That's the one! Now I just need to find one that isn't outrageously priced.

Can’t find a part

The hatch door on my power cord compartment broke and can’t find the hatch anywhere. I can find the square style but mine is 8” X 12.5” and black in color.

RE: 5th wheel tailgate

I cut a piece of plywood the correct size and spent the money that I saved on Diet Pepsi or some other beverage . 3/4" plywood was $100/sheet at Home Depot last week. Not a lot of savings for a hillbilly tailgate.

RE: What do you use for an outdoor ground cover?

One year when e had done extensive site rebuilds with blue grass sod, a camper unrolled their huge astroturf over the beautiful grass? When I aked why, she replied she didnt want her camper to get dirty with mower clippings. She left us a nasty review. I didnt mind, we didnt want people like her in our camp. Nature is a foreign concept to many. If you wish for a ground cover, get an open weave mat that lets water andlight through that does not hinder grass much and still gives you what you want. Do what you can to enjoy and preserve Unsolicited opinion, every campground that I have been in with grass has such stringent requirements about the grass that I never choose a site with grass. I've seen folks get thrown out for parking one wheel on the grass. Make sites as wide as possible and 100% useable.

RE: What do you use for an outdoor ground cover?

RV mats at Walmart, $49.99. We get a few seasons out of them and then the sun will break them down a bit.

RE: 5th wheel tailgate

Maybe something like this will work for you. Tailgate @ eTrailer I believe that this is one of the 100 pound weight capacity tailgates

RE: 5th wheel tailgate

I have been happy with Custom Flow I really liked the looks of the Husky Liner tailgates but couldn't find them in stock so also went with the custom flow. Other than scratching easily, it does the job.

RE: 5th wheel tailgate

I was in the very same situation. Be careful to look at the weight limits of the various 5th wheel tailgates. Many of the cheap ones are limited to 100 pounds. I went with one rated for 200 pounds and I can at least stand on it briefly.

RE: Converter wiring question

Hot and ground apply to the 120v input side of the converter. There, white is neutral, ground is green, and black is hot. On the 12v DC output side, white is negative and the other colour is positive (blue in some converter models). White is return on 120v wiring but hot on 12v wiring. That is what has me confused.
Super_Dave 04/12/21 06:17pm Tech Issues
RE: Converter wiring question

There is a 3 prong plug on one side and a black and white wire to be lugged to the converter.

Converter wiring question

A friend bought a used trailer without a converter. We bought the correct one but questioning whether the white wire is the hot or ground in this case. Are we dealing with 12v standards or 110v?

RE: Question about window tinting

Gdetrailer, my 5th wheel windows now have a factory bronze tint to them which made me think that they were actually absorbing more heat. I'm definitely trying to find a way to minimize heat gain in the trailer.

RE: Question about window tinting

I do not know a WHOLE LOT about tinting, but I did stay at a motel 6 last night... anyway, While at the tint place talking, they had a revolving wheel with the different types and styles on it.. There was a bright light bulb behind, you would rotate the wheel to show the effectiveness of each tint.. The ONLY ones that kept the heat close to minimum was the new NANO based Polymer products.... The 1 advantage of going with the tint is the UV.. the grade they chose is 99% UV protectant. While they were doing the windows, I was inside standing between the 2 windows, 1 done, and 1 not done... The glass was cooler to the touch on the tinted... Just not sure what that would result to in the big scheme of things... Their primary reason for tinting was privacy... Joe Thanks Joe. Personally, I would be just as happy to have all the blinds and drapes down but my wife would just come right behind me and open them all back up again. I would also consider adding more awnings over the windows but just too darn windy every day in the afternoons where we camp.

RE: Question about window tinting

As far as I know, chrome tanker trucks aren’t outlawed nor is the sun. FWIW, I want to just do the sides of the trailer because it is the largest surface area that the sun hits in the campground.

RE: Question about window tinting

Surprised that there hasn’t been anyone with actual experience on the subject.

RE: RV Roof Tape

I have used the Extreme tape and it IS Eternabond. For me, it just gives me a lot of peace of mind.
