RE: Lighting suggestions for rv building

These 4 foot shop lights are very bright and worked great for me. They run $29 normally but are often on sale for $19.

RE: Be Kind!

We're trying to figure out the details for a tailgate party that includes the prerequisite social distancing. Starting to miss our friends and family. Also thinking about fostering a critter or two. My wife and I thought we were struck with it, but tested negative and are finally recovering from whatever bug bit us. Scary times but so far we are in a good place and actively looking for the silver lining.

RE: Roof coatings.

If it was mine, I would use Eternabond to repair those tears, then consider coating it with something. Four years doesn't seem that old to me. Maybe it's because I'm up north. I used Hengs on my then 14 year old rubber roof and am happy so far after 2 years. I repaired it several times over the years with Eternabond due to tree limbs. Worked perfectly.

RE: Cummins Onan P2500I Inverter Portable Generator

Now if they would put out a nice inverter generator that's built in.

RE: Larger replacement fuel tanks for gas trucks

I have a Ram 1500 with the 26 gallon tank and looked into upgrading to their 32 gallon tank. The process was arduous, if you wanted the electronics to match the new size. I've decided it's just easier to carry gas cans.

RE: Gasoline vs Battery Energy Density Explained

Ooops. There I go over reacting again. Sorry.

RE: SHANK question

I replaced my 12" drawbar with an 18" for just the same reasons listed. I can now lower my tailgate without worry. I was able to notice some difference, but it was negligible. I can't tell anymore at all.

RE: Front glass window protection

I have heard that there is an upholstery shop in Denver Colorado that manufactures some kind of window cover for Lance Trailers. I don't know the name of the company but they should be able to do other designs as well. It seems reasonably straight forward to glue snaps or something on to the edges of the window, or around it.

RE: Suggest a TPMS.

Are there any concerns with TPMS and rear view cameras or other wireless devices interfering with each other?

RE: Ford 2.7 eco boost

My brother used to tow a 7500 lb boat, while toting a small in bed camper. His 2.7 Ecoboost was mated to their old yet venerable 6 speed. He was happy with that setup in the Cascades of Washington, and said it performed very well. But, yes he had to add air bags.

RE: Taping down a solar panel on a PAINTED fiberglass roof?

Maybe pay somebody to fiberglass in some mounts for your panels. This way the panels could be raised a bit to avoid transferring heat to the roof, and no fiberglass to get inside.

RE: Rockerball trailer hitch -- has anyone tried it?

I think it would probably cure what happens when towing a uhaul trailer with their sloppy hitch. My travel trailer and truck perform as one. No lurching or jerking.

RE: What is your favorite indoor-outdoor thermometer?

This is an updated version of the one I've been using for years. I think it's reasonably attractive and works very well. https://i.imgur.com/pxLV8kgl.jpg https://www.amazon.com/Crosse-Technology-WS-8157U-CH-Temperature-Forecast/dp/B0000VYIZM/ref=asc_df_B0000VYIZM/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=198090973912&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=1916655162122497131&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9029652&hvtargid=pla-320715222945&psc=1 Or similar models

RE: Floor plan: Front Bathroom, Middle Kitchen, Rear Lounge

The front of the trailer is typically angled quite a bit, eliminating standing room. Probably the main reason you don't see that floor plan. Oliver's have a front bathroom but no slides and they aren't cheap. There are some models out there that the front stays vertical but come to a point on the tongue. I think they call them V-nose. I've seen at least one of those with a bathroom at the front. They may not be made anymore either.

RE: Ozone to clean fresh water tanks

It's my experience that simply draining the water heater, and leaving it drained for a bit periodically, eliminates that particular stinky vermin that can grow in it. The rest of the water system can go much longer with no problems.

RE: How noisy is your A/C?

I think most of the noise is just the air flow, which can only be quieted so much. It sounds like some units are maybe not installed all that well, resulting vibration noise too. Maybe years in the Navy has tuned my hearing to expect ventilation noises. The A/C and furnace are definitely heard but are not offensive to me. Once in a while the furnace may wake me at night when it comes on. Guess I'll just have to make sure to hear 'em running before I purchase.

RE: How noisy is your A/C?

I have a ducted Coleman "Mach" and reduced the noise immensely by building a "spacer box" between the interior grill and the ceiling. The concept was to make the air do 2 90 degree turns rather than have a straight up shot into the noisy fan area. I do not possess a manometer but I do have a little wind speed indicator that showed no noticable change in air velocity coming out of the vents so I feel confident any restriction this causes is negligible. The noise of air coming out of the ducted ceiling vents is now more noticable than the noise of the unit. Next project is pull the spacer back off and cover the rough, cut foam insulation under there (and as far into the ducts from the vents I can reach) with aluminum duct tape to provide a smoother surface for the air to blow over. Hoping that will cut the noise some more. This would not work with a non-ducted, though, as the discharge on them is where my intake area now is. https://i.imgur.com/hJuFw6dl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/c78Ryr6l.jpgThat looks like a cheap, yet effective mod!

How noisy is your A/C?

My trailer is getting pretty long in the tooth. Even for a budget model, it had ducted A/C which was reasonably quiet. I really like the Lance trailers, and a couple different fiberglass clamshell manufacturers, none of which are ducted. Are they quiet? Am I going to have to settle for the more conventional, yet often less reliable models?

RE: Class 3-8 market share

Yes that was a groundless claim. Get it? Groundless? LOL, I kill me. I don't see any honest evidence of that around here. However, I have noted that a coworker has the same model truck as I but his is 2 years newer and is showing rust in a couple spots, where mine has none. The difference as far as I can tell is that I regularly wash mine, especially in the winter.
