RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

I prefer drills to impact drivers for that job. Much quieter and fully up to the job as long as you opt for 18v or higher. I used a DeWalt 14v for a while and it did the job ok, until it suddenly didn't. I've been using a Ryobi 18v drill for quite a while now. It's way more than enough. Keep your stabs clean and lubricated too. It helps.

RE: Is there an Air Conditioner using Inverter Compressor

I've been looking at the mini-splits too. But the OP (and me too) is asking about a roof mounted unit that has similar characteristics to the typical mini-split. It doesn't seem that difficult from a manufacturing stand point. Maybe just not enough market to justify the upfront costs. Too bad.

RE: Making my onboard generator quieter

Agreed! CharlesinGA provided a great example of the improved sound. I would opt for that mod in a heartbeat.

RE: Trying to figure out what trailers I can tow

I still don't understand that low towing capacity number, but regardless, I think that truck would easily handle that trailer.

RE: Trying to figure out what trailers I can tow

I don't think that yellow sticker is an accurate representation of what the truck can tow. Of course, I haven't noticed where you said the truck had the tow package which includes a class IV hitch. My 2015 with the same engine, transmission, and gears, can tow well over 10,000 lbs. The caveat of course being the payload. If you're dropping enough coin for an Airstream, I think I would lean toward a 3/4 ton too. Might as well have some wiggle room.

RE: Level rv-refrigerator

My 2004 travel trailer manual states 3 degrees side to side and 6 front to rear.

RE: Tankless Hot Water Heater (Gas)

In the past they required a pretty good water flow to actually get hot water. I don't know if that's still the case. I guess that's fine if you always have full hookups. We like to go off grid. I'm not sold on them. On edit: Sorry, that's not really what you asked.

RE: Just a reminder.

Good reminder. I had that happen a couple times in the first 5 years or so. I have to admit I haven't checked it in close to a decade now.

RE: Backup camera supplies

I purchased and installed a rear view camera (not just a backup camera) from them many years ago, perhaps 15 or more. I've transferred the monitor to my newest tow vehicle and am still pleased with it. Even years later, Tim responded to my email request with wiring info. Great service!

RE: Battery operated fan quesiton ?

I have a couple of those USB charged fans with batteries. I'm very impressed so far. One is clip on, one is mounted on a tripod with twisty/grippy legs. Both of them can run straight from USB power as long as it's a 2 amp supply, and both claim an 8 hour run time. One of them is permanently mounted on my home bed providing just what you're asking for. One of the best fans I've ever purchased. More recently I added that one mounted on the tripod. I've been using it in battery mode for over a week to provide ventilation while I'm working out on an exercise machine. So far it still claims to be fully charged, and I've been using it on the medium setting. I think one of those higher capacity phone charging battery units would easily keep a couple of these charged up, allowing you to enjoy a good night's sleep.

RE: My Gmail turned to Russian!

I don't think Windows version will have much to do with it. Probably a browser issue.

RE: Timbrens vs. Sumos.....

When I had a leaf spring F150, I added a helper leaf to each side. Don't remember the brand anymore. Super simple install and worked great for years. I tried Timbrens on my current Ram 1500. It was a jarring mistake. I took them back off within a week. Sumo Springs come in two strengths I think. I would opt for the softer one. Right now I'm considering air bags. Fairly simple install and adjustability are both plusses. JMHO

RE: What size inverter do I need?

A Jackery is about as an expensive solution as you could find. (It’s a battery!) Add another solar panel and another RV deep cycle battery. Consider Lithium.This is what I would do. If you could install the panels on the roof, it would be almost no maintenance or thought there after.

RE: Cooper AT3 XLT

I tried a set of AT3 XLTs several years ago. I couldn't get them to balance even after swapping out two of them. I ended up with Nitto Terra Grapplers. Now I'm going to try the Coopers again as the Nittos simply have no grip for my application. I later learned that the vendor I used may have had unreliable tire balancing equipment.

RE: Extensive Traveling with a 5th Wheel

Of the "light" fifth wheels I looked at with any real interest, the manufacturer claims materials and assembly are the same. The difference is the units are smaller and may have less stuff in them.

RE: Generators: Cummins 4500 vs Westinghouse vs. ?????

Gotta agree about the reliability. I'm no mechanic but all my small engine appliances, which includes Yamaha and Champion generators, have run reliably for the last 30 years. All I do is change the oil, once in a while the spark plug, and strictly and only use non-ethanol fuel with Stabil in it. Sometimes I don't touch one of those devices for years and they still start and run fine.

RE: Very Poor Results From Heng's Roof Coating

I dunno if I agree with the above. My roof was 14 years old with lots of black rubber showing. It's been almost 4 years and my Hengs roof is holding up well. OP, sorry to hear about your experience.

RE: Portable Gen Wireless Start Questions

I purchased a replacement off Amazon. I can't remember if it matches exactly, but I'm sure I matched physical dimensions, and equaled or exceeded the charging/starting specs. I'm too lazy to go find the info. I left the original on a small battery maintainer 24/7 and suspect that had something to do with its early demise. Now I just plug it in for 24hrs once a month. So far so good.
