RE: Problem with outside taps in my Cougar 5th

This may not help but here's what I found that helps. I have the outside shower on the back side and a cold water connection on the front side. On the outside shower (has both hot and cold) after turning off water -release the pressure on the hose before disconnecting it. This way the quick connect is not under pressure reconnecting it. Never had a problem connecting after doing this. The one on the front is hard to connect under pressure (has no shut off valve). A couple of time I've shut off the main water supply (water pump or city water) release line pressure by opening a inside faucet then connect which made it easy. Mine is hard to connect while the line is under pressure-easy without pressure.

RE: My luck ran out,, Hail Storm.

I feel your pain. 2 years ago all hooked up and ready to pull out to go camping the next morning. Hail storm came through about midnight golf ball size. $3,700 damage to my truck had insurance- 5er no insurance $2,200 out of pocket. We had decided only a day before to go early otherwise they would have been still under cover if we were leaving the evening instead of early morning.

RE: How to tow & push BACKWARDS?

Put in the post but chain a pulley to it. Attach a cable to the front of the rv go through the pulley back under the rv and attached to your pickup. Now your pulling it in.

RE: What to do with my hitch

Take mine out every year. I use my tractor with pallet forks. I put the hitch on the pallet and put it under the 5er overhang while the 5er is in storage building.

RE: Help with I’d of this capacitor

Be on the safe side and de energize the capacitor before you play with it. de energize Now why did you go tell him about that. LOL I’ve work on electric motors for 30 + years and the new guy alway find out how they feel within a day or two!

RE: Help with I’d of this capacitor

Go with a 30-5uf 370vac that the most common. Also if you can still read the name plate on the fan motor they usually alway state what size cap for it.

RE: tire psi

The sticker on your door reflects the inflation for max. GWR of your truck. That is the info I use to inflate my tires. There is no use going higher unless you are overloading the truck. But what if the tires is not factory? Did some put lighter on it at some point- maybe heavier ply tires.

RE: tire psi

To what the tire says. Also make sure there rated for the weight your put on them. White the 5er in your sig I would say your put around 1500 to 1600lb in the bed.

RE: keeping the bugs away while Rving

Perhaps a freestanding screen room like a Clam Quick-Set, a Gazelle, or a Coleman Instant? Just a quick comment on the Clam Quick-Set. They set up quick-easy and keeps the bugs away. But on the down side when it’s hot out even with a 5-10 mph wind has hardly any air flow through the screen side so that make them hot to sit in. We’re camping now with it set up and have to keep a fan running on high inside to to make it bearable just to sit in to eat.

RE: A.C. problem

If fan is running make sure the compressor is running.

RE: Air Conditioner shuts off when slide is in

This is the first I have heard of this problem. There is no reason for the A/C to do that unless the A/C is directly over roof when it is in and for some reason they have a interlock system installed. Looking at the floor plan the a/c is directly about the slide when in. Also is the thermostat accessible when slide is in? Be strange for it not to be but they do strange things on rv’s.

RE: Neighbors Wouldn’t Help

I would have help no ? ask. I do live out in the country. I know all my neighbors and they all have my phone # if they need help. I've help out many times with health and other things.

RE: Life of AC?

First thing I would do is check the compressor capacitor. If that's bad it will cause a high amp draw trying to start. You would think the place you took it to would have check it but you never know.

RE: Grey water pump into portable waste tank

Get one of these. With my Dewalt 18v drill it will pump 5 1/2 gpm and will work pumping gray water. I use one to transfer fresh water from a tank in my truck bed into my RV holding tank. Works really well and cheap.Drill pump Can you tell me why you want to put water INTO your holding tank? Matt Guess I should have said fresh water tank. The talk was about holding tanks and had that stuck in the old noggin.
