RE: Alignment shop

Take it to a truck frame and alignment shop. You should also check and/or replace the leafspring bushings and shackles with a wet bolt kit.

RE: Battery disconnect - switch or fuse?

I use a battery switch like bob213 linked to but mine is on the positive cable. I never shut this switch off unless I'm working on the 12-volt battery system.

RE: Water Issue

I agree with your neighbor that this problem may fix itself. By removing the city water pressure and running the water pump it will flush out the calcium that is stuck in the check valve.

RE: Diesel fuel prices … how is that affecting your RV travel ?

I expect diesel to keep going up until summer is over then it might drop a bit. By next year you will be happy to $6 per gallon. I just bought a new truck, so I still plan on towing the 5th wheel.

RE: RV Generator

It looks like you can still buy them. What the Golden State did was ban the sale of gas-powered generators starting on January 1, 2028. It's still totally legal to possess a gas-powered generator and operate it within the State of California.Apr 5, 2022

RE: Will a 3/4 ton do

It is far better to have too much truck than not enough truck.

RE: Mixing battery types??

OK, since I am asking stupid questions instead of searching and sorting through a bunch of ****. If I go to Lifepo4 bateries, do I need to change my charging system? I am going through the change to Lifepo4 now. It is not just a simple exchange, plan on spending more money. I had four 6 volt flooded lead acid batteries, 470 AH. I bought one 206 AH Lifepo4 thinking that it would have plenty of power but it would not power my microwave, so I had to buy a second 206 AH Lifepo4. The issue is with the BMS. I have 860 watts of solar on the roof and my MPPT charge controllers will work with the new batteries but my PD converter will not.

RE: Best Portable Black Water Tank?

On our 5th wheel our tanks are 45 gallons each, we can last 18 -21 day on the black tank and 7 -10 days on the gray tank. We move every 14 days so don't have a problem with the black tank. When the gray tank gets full I dump some of it into 5 gallon buckets and hull them to the dump station.

RE: Trailer Camera

I bought the 2022 Chevrolet High Country, and it has the camera plugs at the rear bumper. My dealer was not any better that your dealer, they just don't know or don't want to research to find the correct answer. If you don't have the trailer camera plugs, I would guess that you can't just install the camera plugs.

RE: AGM Deep Cycle batteries

I think you are better off staying with flooded lead acid batteries. Two (or four) 6volt golf cart batteries. They are half the cost and I get 6 or 7 years out of mine before I replace them.

RE: 12 volt Refrigerator

You would be much better off with a propane refrigerator.

RE: RV door window

It looks like a great idea but if you have a screen door how are you going the slide the shade open or close?

RE: RV sulfur smell

You have wheels on your RV for a reason, move on.

RE: Leveling blocks on dual rear wheels

That would depend on the weight. You might crush the plastic blocks. Wood blocks would hold up under one tire.

RE: Trailer Hitch Set-up Option

Ideally you want the trailer to be level so if you need to turn the hitch over to get the trailer level then do it.

RE: time to get vehicle after ordering

RE: Batteries and Inverter Installed

You need to check the water in the batteries at least once a week. Hot weather and multiple discharge/charge cycle will cause evaporation. Depending on how much you use your RV, you probably need to clean the batteries every 3 - 6 months. Our four FLA 6 volt golf cart batteries only use one pint each per year. We use our trailer 120 -150 days a year. They are seven years old and there is no corrosion on the terminals at all.

RE: portable grey waste disposal cart

I use a 5 gallon bucket from HD, get the lid too.

RE: Front brakes

On my 2007 GMC 3500HD dually at 175,000 miles one rear pad was down to metal so I replaced one rotor and all the pads. The front pads had over 50% of the original pad left. As for temperature they all feel warm.
