RE: Water hook up

I have the same hook up as you on our 2019 Jayco. I use those short (maybe 8") hose with the wire around to keep from kinking. I screw that on first by holding the nut and screwing the short hose into it.That the best way I've came up with and haven't had any problem with leaking.Haven't had any problem attaching the quick connect hose (blue coil hose) on mine the couple time I've used it.

RE: Timken bearing sets

Probably sale 10 sets to every one piece individually sold and packaged in a single box. Next time our bearing rep drops by I'll ask him.

RE: Timken bearing sets

All I run is Timken or SKF. I rebuild lots of gear boxes every year small to 6,000lb +. Always Timken or SKS. If you want it to last use the best.

RE: Step carpet

They do look good! One thing though about those carpets ,the metal Steps will actually Rust and Dissolve much faster when they are carpeted! The steps on ours are aluminum.

RE: Fresh water drain

My 2019 has a on-off valve to drain the fresh water tank on the exterior just under the edge of camper. My low point drain valves are behind a panel in basement compartment.

RE: Main power extension cord now a must for me

With DUAL 50A Receptacles Front & Rear and detachable 50A Power Cord I have NOT needed an extension cord How do you switch between them? He saying he has a receptacle that common between the two on his. One in front and one at the rear so he just uses the closest one to the power pedestal to plug his cord into.

RE: Lippert auto leveling question

I back in and look at my levels (they have inch marks) that I installed on my pin box.If off more than 2 1/2" side to side I'll put blocks on the low side.Then I'll look and see how much off front to rear. Then if I'm showing low in the front I drop the leg extender and lift of the hitch. Move the truck and hit auto level. If high in the front let's say 5" then I'll run the front main legs down about 6" then drop the leg extenders lift of the hitch move the truck and hit auto level. If high in the front you need to run the main leg out so it has room to drop down to level or almost level.Now let's say the front is 5" high but you only ran the main leg down a couple inches.Auto level can only lower the front 2" at most and will to have to raise the rear 4" + to get to level.Maybe I just worry more than I should about lifting the whole camper.That's how I do it maybe more work than I need to be doing.

RE: praying mantis

I did some bush hogging this past weekend and saw more of those than I think I’ve ever seen. Must have been a good year for them. Nice pic!

RE: Anti-seize on brake caliper bracket?

That not going to cause any problem as long as there tight. I’ve used it many times doing the same. They make a special grease like stuff just for that that you can buy also. Can’t remember what it called. That’s what my son uses at his auto repair shop. I just take my stuff to him to get repaired now. I get really good shop rates. LOL

RE: New Ram 3500 SRW (Edited with Pictures)

Congrats on the new truck and enjoy. I do the same hanging on to things for a long period of time. My 02 Ford 7.3 and just this past month bought a new 5er. Our old one we bought new in 02.Dad always taught me if you take care of what you buy most thing will last a long time.

House batteries (has 2) durning storage.

On our new 5er it has a battery disconnect switch but doesn't shut every thing off. Just had a RV carport built but to far away from ac power to plug in. So thinking maybe a solar charger to keep the batteries charged plus the demand. Or another disconnect switch directly off the battery to totally disconnect them and maybe a small solar charger.I don't want to pull the batteries because I do check things every 3 or 4 weeks inside and out during storage just making sure there's no problems with anything. What do you do? Your thoughts?

Surge power protector- hard wire or portable?

I have room behind a panel to put the hard wire version. But what if for some reason it goes south? Now your going to have to wire around to restore power.Make it plug and play by putting plugs on each side? If I do that why not just use a portable unit and install behind the panel? Or just use the portable unit plugging into the power pedestal? Taking the chance of someone walking off with it-water intrusion and just having to deal with every time you set up and leave. What's you thoughts? I'm sure there's more + and - to each one.

RE: question about battery

You household electric 120vac runs a converter (battery charger) to charge the battery. The battery is the reserve power to run 12vdc intermittent items such as your slides - power awning- power jacks and small 12vdc drain items such as lights. The a/c and water heater (if heating on electricity) requires you to be plugged in on 120vac. The battery disconnect is used to turn off the battery to everything in the rv during storage. If the rv sits for a period of time with the batteries not disconnected and not plug into 120vac the rv still has a small drain on the battery and will run it down over a period of time. The converter is not designed to run the 12 vdc power alone it needs the battery reserve so the larger 12v drain items is not pulling power solely of the converter.
