RE: RV Tank Maintenance

I've had very good luck with Dish Washer soap. It's made to break down grease...which helps clean the gunk off the sensors. However, I've always put it in with about 1/4-1/2 tank of water when traveling, no sure if it would work if you don't slosh it around. Good Luck !

RE: Gas TV for a year long trip

I've towed (race car) trailers gas and diesel for 25 years and all over the country. Personally, I wouldn't even consider a trip the miles and duration you're talking about without a diesel. The reasons are almost too numerous to list. Good luck whichever way you choose, sounds like one heck of an adventure.

RE: The Best Quality 200-Amp Solenoid I Have Yet Seen

Thanks for posting, I was going to do a thread asking this very question. I bought one last week on Amazon and it was DOA. I ended up repairing the original one that came in our RV from 2006 (this is the starter-boost one) for now.

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

I'm only 50, but old school. I would know what it means, but after seeing some things on the road now (as we all do) I'm not sure to trust until I can see myself.

RE: New to me... UPDATE!!!

Make sure and report back. I was just about to buy a PitBoss from Lowes and a buddy mine had trouble with his. The leftover pellets down in the Auger swelled up enough to seize it and they wouldn't warranty it as they expect it cleaned out all the time (So, he tells me). This guy also has a Traeger and he has never had an issue. I want one to try, but not enough to spring for a Traeger.

RE: Where to buy new Surge Tank Hose?

I'm with 12th man, try NAPA. Just from the picture it looks like the common fuel fill hose that many of the auto/truck parts houses sell by the foot. EDIT: Maybe this one, if it's 1.750" outside it's probably 1.5" ID, obviously measure to be sure. Napa Fuel Filler Hose

RE: Starter will not turn over

IS anything or any lights coming on ? Forgive me for sounding over simplistic, but did you remove protective caps from new battery terminals ?

RE: Should I tow my Grand Cherokee or get something lighter?

sooner or later you will pay a price for towing beyond the capacity of your hitch, towbar or the GCWR of your MH. premature failure of suspension, brakes, poor handling, extended braking distances , etc. IMO you’ll be increasing the risk to yourself and anyone who has the misfortune to cross your path. weight ratings are there for a reason. follow them. but i’m fairly certain you knew the answer to your own question before you asked it. Not trying to contradict you but, where did he say he was beyond the capacity of his hitch, towbar, or GCWR ??? Only info he gave was his GC is "Nearly" 5,000 lbs. How were you able the glean this info from what he posted ?

RE: Should I tow my Grand Cherokee or get something lighter?

We tow a 2014 Ford Explorer @ 5200 lbs behind basically the same coach (31' Winnebago). It tows fine, yes I'm at the limit with my tow capacity and hitch but over 8K miles so far with zero issues. Slow up hills, but honestly only a few MPH than when not towing. I lose about .5 MPG when towing, unless a lot of hills, then closer to 1- 1.2 MPG. Good Luck! EDIT: I personally don't "think" going lighter will make much of a difference. These MH's cut such a big hole in the air...that's your drag, towing 1,000 lbs difference won't make a huge gain. Again, that's only my opinion.

RE: Minnie Winnie 22R vs Jayco Redhawk 22J

We have been to several large RV "shows" and compared units side by side. Without question (IMO) the Winnebago units appear to be built better....or at least use slightly better materials. Even my wife noticed what she called "looks sturdier" while in the Winnebago units. This was before we bought one, and of course we got a Winnie. To be fair I have never owned a Jayco and of course there any many different opinions out there. But, we are happy with ours, now 13 years old and haven't had an issue or leak. I do maintain caulk etc regularly. Good Luck !

RE: Toad charging line

Does your coach have a 7-blade plug currently ? If so, there should already be a 12v source at the plug. I "assume" your CRV has a 4-flat plug for the lights ? If so, just change the plug on the CRV to a 6-round connector with the black wire pin connected to the positive battery post, add a fuse or circuit breaker to the line. You can buy a coiled connector to go from coach to toad with 7-flat to 6-round just for this purpose. E-Trailer is a great resource and has all the parts for this.

RE: BBQ Baby Back Ribs using an Instant Pot questions

I do it all the time and they come out awesome. Instant pot with water and apple cider vinegar plus any seasonings you like, cook high pressure for 25 minutes. Tender but still on the bone, finish on grill with your favorite sauce. Also, cook them on Trivet so they don't sit in the liquid.

RE: Carolina Pines RV Resort Myrtle Beach

Being in the construction industry and knowing how delays go, I think you took a major risk in expecting it to be open on time. Don't take that as a knock, I may have done the same thing. Sometimes you win, this time you didn't. Hopefully, you can find somewhere to stay and forget about it. Good Luck !
