Garbage disposal?

Is it possible to add a garbage disposal to an rv sink? Obviously you would have to cap off the piece that usually runs to dishwasher and run a dedicated wire to a switch . Can and rv gray water system handle it? Has anyone tried this?

Tie switch into existing light

My Current TT has a switch on the control pad to turn on the over head lights in the living area, but that is the only switch. The other lights (all LED) have a little button in the middle to press and turn on. I was wondering if it is possible and how easy it would be to tie the light in my bedroom and the light in our bunkroom to a switch on the wall? I want to mount one to the entertainment center on the other side of the bedroom and one on the wall coming into the bunkroom (as my kids cannot reach the light on the ceiling). I don't do much electrical but is it pretty straight forward? Can it be done? Has anyone ever done it? Thanks.

RE: Stuff in your storage compartment?

Maybe a drying rack for wet swimsuits or clothes. I keep various cleaners (window, heavy duty cleaner, grille cleaner, caulk and gun, rags, etc....) Misquito fighters (tiki torches and fuel, citronella candles, lighter. If you have an outdoor kitchen you will want cooking stuff. Wheel chock Anything you need to hook up and unhook the trailer. We store our bike helmets in our storage bin and a pump A 5 gallon bucket (you never know when you will need it)

clay bar and wax

Looking to detail the rig. How do the exterior of the RV's do with a clay bar, is it ok or too abrasive?. Also is there a certain type of wax to use? It is a fiberglass sidewall, Not azdel (however you spell it). Any other recommendations on detailing and RV?

RE: A simple idea

Two more suggestions: first, tell her how great she's doing, as often as you can. Pretty soon, you will both start to believe it. ;) Second, don't undertake a complicated backing-up job when you are hungry or thirsty. We often "snack up" as we are nearing our destination to build up our blood sugar for the upcoming ordeal. This is key. Plus snacks keep the kids in their seats while backing in also. Sort of like the"FOrgive me for everything I said while parking the camper"

RE: Any tips for installing a cover, without a roof ladder?

I had this problem. I used An 8ft ladder. I took the cover and run rolled it towards the front or back depending on how I fold it. Then as I unfold it I place 5 or 10lb weight plates to hold the top secure as I unfold it over the edges. Then remove them when it is all in place.

RE: Adjusting Weight Distribution Hitch

RE: Adjusting Weight Distribution Hitch

It's hard to say. If the holes in the hitch are exactly 2 inches apart. And your lift is exactly 2 inches, then there are no other adjustments necessary. But unfortunately we are not in a perfect world and I imagine you're going to have to set up the hitch again. Forgive my ignorance. How do I set it up again? The dealer did it originally

Adjusting Weight Distribution Hitch

I am in the process of adding larger wheels and a minor 2in lift to my truck. My question is this. I have the equalizer weight distribution hitch. I am going to adjust the ball down one notch. My questions are: Do I need to adjust the height of the arms that hold the bars that are attached to the trailer. Are there any other adjustments/tips I should be aware of to dial it in properly?

RE: A/C on 20 amp

We have guest in now and are plugged into a dedicated 20 amp circuit. We are running Ac it will cut off when gets to temp but won't cut on. Would this be a voltage issue or thermostat malfunction?

Entry level trailer what qualifies.

I always hear the term "entry level" when folks talk about travel trailer. What makes/qualifies a trailer as entry level? Or is it just matter of brand's or a model within each brand, features or lack there of?

Storing tools for the RV

We all know how important it is to carry tools so we can modify and fix any issues with our RV. What is the best place to store the toola' in RV or in the truck (also the tow vehicle). I keep mine in a toolbox in the bed to the truck as when I have the RV I tow it with the truck. What does everyone else do/ prefer?

outdoor kitchen fridge question

I have a kystone passport 2920bh with the outdoor kitchen and mini fridge. The fridge unfortunatly does not run off propane. We like to bookdock alot, and i was thinking of hooking a 1000 watt inverter to the batteries (dual set up) to run it and have cold drinks when we have no power. My questions are .... - Will the 1000 watt inverter be enough to run it ( i will fuse and add a switch to the line, and it will run off the dual batteries). - Also about how much life will I get out of the batteries with it running off the inverter before I have to charge batteries. Any other solutions also? Thanks

Backup camera option

I have a 2018 passport 2920bh, it comes set up ready for thw furrion backup/observation system. That system system is very expensive. I I have found cheaper systems on amazon (ex:camecho system and others). Has anyone ever added one of these cheaper systems to the housing and/or wire that came pre installed on the camper. If so how did you do it, how did it work? If you just went with the furrion system how does it work?

Pull Through or Back in sites? Which do you prefer.

Just wanted to put this out there out of curiosity: Pull Through and back in sites each have their own advantage/disadvantages. I tend to like the back in sites, as I feel they are more secluded on 3 sides. Which type of site do you prefer and why?

Weight distribution hitch upkeep

Just wondering if there is anything we are supposed to do or maybe good to do for upkeep of the weight distribution hitch? Also if they are not maintained does that affect their performance?

Bunkroom door

Has anyone ever added a door to the opening of a bunkroom? Would home depot or lowes have a door that would work? I assume it is a hollow core door, so i need it sized to fit. Also i am not sure if thw jam will support it. I have passport 2920bh and it has a seperate bunkroom, but there is no door. The newer model has since added a door, so I was interested in trying this. Any thoughts/tips? Thanks

Weighing rv

This is a silly question I am sure, but here it goes. I know you can weigh your rig at a truck stop on their scales. I was wondering if you can use those random truck scales on the side of the highway or do they frown upon that? Also would It get me the weights i want (tongue weight, trailer weight, truck weight, and combined weight. I know (at least near me) the state police sometimes search vehicles there, which would be a pain. That is all I have near me though and I want to get the weights of my unit. Thanks
