RE: Pure sine wave inverter suggestions?

Samlex Inverter, a little pricey but a real pure sin wave Inverter.

RE: Heating Cost: Electric vs. Propane

Please remember exchange tanks usually don't have 20# in them! More like 15#.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

I have invested only $28,000 over my total ownership of pickups! $2,300 for a well used '98 Silverado $12,000 for a lightly used '04 F-150 $13,700 for a new 2011 Silverado (only 48,000 miles). I feel very lucky, but I cannot afford another pickup in retirement!

RE: Aluminum or fiberglass trailer

Look for "azdel" backed fiberglas. Lance is one mfg. It is resin based, not wood.

RE: Surge protector

Search " Portable Generator open ground " here an rv.net. You should get many hits on what to do.

RE: Surge protector

There is an issue when using a Generator! You will need a special wired adapter to use with a generator! Make sure you do not get an Open Ground indication, you will need a floating ground plug. You should be looking at an EMS (Electrical Management System) which does a lot more than simple Surge protector. Yes, they are more expensive, but the value if your electrical system/components is very high.

RE: Suspension hardware

I replaced my suspension with brass bushings and whet bolts about 2 years ago. I also replaced the equalizers with Dexter EZ-Flex equalizer. Best thing I've done for the camper. It smooths out the ride and lessens the sway when trucks pass. The suspension kit was from E-Trailer.

RE: Battery Monitor Install

I just did the same thing! It gives quick and easy information. Hardest thing was tracing the battery negative wire back to the terminal block. Actual time about 1 hr.

RE: Interesting entry steps / stairs.

Looks like mounting hardware would interfere with most RV doors closing.

RE: Preparing to Camp Host

Here in NY Camp Hosts are "State Positions" so politics and paper work to get a spot. On a plus side, toilet cleaning is responsibility is on SP employees not hosts.

RE: Just bought Truck Camper- how do I move

I did the strap thing, when I brought home my TC, but it was a much lighter TC. From Long Island to Grand Island (Buffalo) It was white knuckle trip, and would not recommend with a heavy TC. Maybe with steel I beams under the frame to keep straps/chains away from sheet metal! Old time tie down systems did that, but they went away for reasons.

RE: AGM upgrade

I agree, as I upgraded to "Progressive Dynamics with Charge Wizard" as I lost 2 batteries with short life. Happy so far. I did add a cheap (China) monitor with a shunt to check voltages and amps.

RE: Beech Lane Levelers

I have Anderson Ultimate set, they work great. Less backing up and adding lego blocks. All you have to do is back on to them (set brake, so you don't roll off of them), check level, repeat if not level, and then chock them in place. You can use on one or rwo wheels.

RE: Thought on suspension equalizers

I upgraded my suspension a couple years ago to to E-Zflex and brass wet bolts (OEM plastic bushings were worn through). The difference was amazing! I don't use sway bars and it cut sway dramatically when trucks passed. My truck rattles more going over than the TT does going over RR tracks.

RE: Top of Slideout Not Fully Retracting

I use Harbor Freight Bar Clamps on the inside. Just reverse the end to make it a spreader. That and a awning topper will keep the rain out. I've had no water in the camper since installing/using both! My camper is a 2011, so it is not new. WNYBob

RE: Truck Camper For Chevy Silverado 1500

Here are links that have long bed campers. Travellite Campers LancCampers.Campers Please note your available payload as 1500 are limited in what they can carry. I had a Travel Lite 800 and it was pushing the truck's limits. WNYBob

RE: Poor Tire Install

How old were the tires that blew? (Check the date of your "new" ones) Always check the DOT dates and demand tires that are less than a year old! WNYBZOB

RE: What ONE feature do you really like/want in your next RV ?

A frame and underlayment that won't promote fiberglass siding! WNYBob

RE: RVing during Pandemic and looking relocate

Come on East! We have wonderful health care here. Cost of owning a home is one of the lowest in the country! Lots of camping, including the #1 & #2 State Parks on the country. Where is this place, and it Western New York! Yes it gets cold here, but we have some of the best skiing east of the Mississippi. Come give us a try, (after you quarantine for 14 days, that is) WNYBob
