RE: Running your propane Refrigerators while fueling?

I'm talking around the Coeur d'Alene area. It is beautiful here! I enjoy it for sure. But I know there's beauty to be had all over this country and am hoping to have a shot at it one of these day. When I do, I'll probably leave the propane on. :)

RE: Fire stick

I do have a couple fire sticks in the regular homestead. I've recently added a fire tv recast which enables OTA viewing via those fire sticks and is a first step toward cutting the cord. But in the meantime, I have roku in my travel trailer which doubles as a man cave. The roku is a newer model that is very fast, which makes a huge difference to me. I HATE waiting. At any rate it brings in the cable channels and tons of other media, which make man caving very pleasant.

RE: Running your propane Refrigerators while fueling?

Smoking while fueling seems to be a popular sport here in north Idaho.

RE: Tow Vehicle Tire Pressure

35 PSI nearly put me in the ditch. 44 PSI was perfectly stable.

RE: So I bought a new to me travel trailer and.....

If the roof was damaged with a little tear, then properly repaired, no big deal. The repair will last as long as the roof. If you have no water intrusion/damage, shine it on. For peace of mind you could get up there with some Eternabond or self leveling Dicor and seal the edges of the patch. And while you're up there, do the rest of the edges and trim with Eternabond, then you'll NEVER have to go up there again.

RE: gelcoat sun damaged after 1.5 years. yay winnebago :-(

Maybe that's why Winnebago quit offering those bright/extreme colors and has gone back to the basics; white, grey, beige.

RE: Generator Obsrevations.

I went to a festival this last weekend where many RVs camped under an elevated interstate. A lot of us were running our generators and A/Cs. I got a good dose of built in Onan generators, and have to say they are not especially loud. I can also attest that my own Champion 3400 sitting in the bed of my truck was just as quiet, maybe quieter while powering my air conditioner. We were sitting 10 feet from it, enjoying casual conversation.

RE: Running your propane Refrigerators while fueling?

Link? I always hear this type of story, but I don't think I've ever seen it actually corroborated.

RE: Tow Vehicle Tire Pressure

Too bad the original poster didn't specify more info about their tow vehicle. It certainly sounds like a 150/1500 series. Unlike 250/2500 and above, half ton trucks are most often tuned for comfort, not work. 35 PSI is a great pressure for daily driving, not for towing or hauling. I increase my P rated tire pressure to the sidewall max when towing, which greatly increases stability, and probably improves long term durability, through less heat build up too.

RE: Hooking up a 12V 3A TV in my TT

At least a decade ago, I bought a (I think it was the Bestbuy "Insignia" brand) 24" 12v TV that came with a typical power brick. I modified the power cord like you intend to do, and it's been plugged into that cigar lighter adapter for years now and continues to work fine under wide variety of temperatures and voltage conditions. Just be careful with the polarity.

RE: new westinghouse generator 3700/4500

I think the Honda engines are made in China too. And many of the generic Chinese generators use literal clones of those.

RE: Accumulator installation

You probably just need to rearrange the water lines to ensure none are resting against a wall or the side of a cabinet. That can amplify the noise.

RE: Endurance failure

So, will an LT survive clipping the curb better? I dunno if I'm the only guy that actually, purposely occasionally goes down a curb, or takes it off road where there are sharp rocks and cracks and crevasses. I did break a belt on my first set of tires, but none since. Maybe I'm just fortunate that my trailer is relatively light?

RE: Researching Generators

My 3400 watt Champion with remote start is a fuel sipper in my opinion. It has absolutely no problem starting the A/C. It's heavy no doubt, but that's an asset too. Less likely to walk away in any hurry. The remote start is a very popular feature with my wife. I considered the dual fuel, but ultimately decided against it since gasoline provides more power, is easier to come by, and dual fuel units don't have remote start.

RE: Ram 1500 Hemi or Ecodiesel?

Considering it won't happen more often than every 5 or 6 years, I wouldn't prioritize changing the spark plugs very high.

RE: Lots of help in how to post

I haven't read your other threads. Based on your very brief description of your tow vehicle, it looks like some kind of half ton class. Some of them could tow this: Highland Ridge Ultra Lite

RE: Honda 2000: surprisingly poor oil fill tube design

My Yamaha 2800i was identical. Annoying yes, but a pretty easy way to get the correct amount, that's for sure.

RE: I hate dinettes

We need the storage afforded with the dinette. I will probably replace the foam with good stuff this year. However I've had no problem sitting through an entire movie or two at mine.

RE: Change to Lithium-ion?

One of the more informative threads I've read here in a while. I enjoy those posts that keep it grounded in common sense too. Thanks! :)
