RE: Lippert six point levelling jacks

this video doesnt make sence to me. I only have the 4 point, but once there is pressure on all 4 pads it doesnt matter how high the tires are going to come off the ground the rig isn't moving. but my rear and front jacks look substantualy beefier than thoes ones.. elecric vs hydryalic I guess. I just had to use them to lift one side of the 5th so the tires were 1" off the ground a coupel weeks ago to change a tire. But the site was off level front to back, so when the tires were raised on the one side off the ground, the chocks were no longer holding it, that side slid forward

RE: Storing My Diesel Truck Over Winter Advice

I rarely drive my truck in winter so I do have an onboard maintainer for the batteries and keep it on that. Also as others have said fill up the tank and use some type of conditioner. Most importantly, make sure you pat its hood and tell her what a good job she has done this year and let her take a rest.

RE: Lippert six point levelling jacks

So is it okay then if you are off level to have one side where the tires are lifted off the ground? I don't have this system yet but sure the next rig will and was curious if that would cause any damage or its perfectly fine.

RE: PSI when using higher load range tires.

I have the Goodyear Endurance and run them at 80psi as they suggest.

RE: Trailersavor vs Anderson Ultimate

I had a Reese solid hitch for years and had no issues with it. I then bought a Trailersaver air ride hitch because my truck already rides like an old stagecoach going down a gravel road. This really improved the ride. I can look in my rear-view mirror and see the hitch doing it thing by absorbing the bounce of the trailer and not transferring it to the truck. To me its not a question of Anderson or Trailersaver but rather any solid mounted hitch compared to any air ride hitch. They are pricier but it is a one and done thing. I am happy with my purchase and if I ever needed to get a new hitch it would be an air ride hitch

RE: hot spots

With the proper support devices, cell booster, mimo antenna or yagi antenna on a 16' painters pole, I've never not had cell reception. Even out in the desert or miles from civilization in a forest. There is always a cell tower somewhere. You just need to reach out to it. I should have mentioned that I did have my booster, 25ft pole with antenna on it as well and depending on what time of day I might be able to snag a little bit of signal for a short while. Dont forget in a campground its more than just you trying to get a signal, its everyone else too so reach out all you want too - these were my results

RE: no noise generators

The power stations have their place and are nothing new and have been around for a while, they have just got a little fancier and have better batteries in them and now being able to charge them with solar as well. I think a well-prepared person has both a generator and a power station.

RE: hot spots

We just got back from our trip and were up in Michigan UP and had plenty of areas with zero phone reception so no hot spot would work there. My advice is to see where you will be going a lot and if they have cell coverage, then you can go with what some of the other posters had mentioned. If there is no coverage then Starlink is about your only choice

RE: Best Hitch

I have the Trailersacer BD3 air hitch and would not be without it after having a standard hard mounted hitch. It takes a lot of the bounce that would otherwise be transferred to the truck.

RE: sanitizing fresh tanks - basic question

Here is my routine 1. pour the bleach in the hose 2. run the water through the hose and fill the tank 3. run all the faucets and toilet and so on 4. let this all sit 8-24 hours 5. I open up all the faucets and let the solution run through until the tank is empty. 6. I refill the tank then open up all faucets and let it run through until the tank is empty 7. I repeat the fill/drain again Yes it uses a lot of water to do this 5.

RE: Cleaning the awning

Open the awning and spray it down with the hose Spray Tilex on it and roll it up Let it sit for about 30 minutes or so, open it up and spray it down again and it will be clean, no scrubbing needed

RE: WIFI Light Switch

I guess I need to ask the very first question and that is - will you have internet and a router with you wherever you go camping? If you do then great - I think any wifi switch would work provided its able to fit into the outlet. A lot of them are big and chunky and you might not have the room for them to fit in

And then they wonder why members drop off from these forums

RE: New battery cost.

I think a lot of folks on this thread are talking about a dual purpose battery from places like Walmart and Oreily. (Starting and deep cell) If you are looking for a true deep cell battery, Renogy has one on sale now from Amazon. Its a deep cell 100 amp hour AGM battery for 200 Link For a little less money, this one is a highy rated true deep cell battery Link

RE: Electric TT

Its just a gimmick in my opinion. Even if it does finally get built it will be way overpriced.

RE: Using a Cpap in my AF 27-5

I've never heard if a jackery before but they sound neat but for $600 and up they better work. but how many amp hours do the various ones provide. Yes, they have some neat features however. bumpy However what? The Jackery was just used as an example, there are many others out there for cheaper and I was just giving an example of what can be used. I have used a smaller battery on my Resmed 10 that lasted 8hrs on long flights without a problem of course without the humidifier and heated tube on. You can easily figure out the amp hours they produce.

RE: Using a Cpap in my AF 27-5

I guess it depends on how long you will be boondocking. As others have said just dont use the heated hose and humidifier. You can also buy an external battery pack like Jackery to plug into that should be good for a few days
