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

RE: Travel Trailer Cover

I have a Classic Accessories permapro and love it. The ripstop nylon is great and breathable. The install was easy too. We'll worth the cost. As stated be sure to pad corners and gutters to prevent ripping.

When to wax

Heading out this weekend then putting the rig away for winter. I am going to cover it, but just wanted opinions: is it better to wax it before I put it away, or wait until I get it back out in spring?

RE: Truck recommendations based on experience

Pick your favorite brand of 250/2500 and move on. A 150/1500 would be sufficient for your lightest trailer picks, but a 2500 is way more at the end of the day. A gas motor truck will be a great pick. X2 on this. For the money compared to 1/2 tons Ford 250 or chevy 2500 can't be beat From my experience my trusty 20 year old f150 towed our 33ft 7500lb TT But after I bought a 2017 f250 6.2 liter gasser about 6k miles of towing I have to say nothing wrong with more truck than u need. Very comfortable experience towing mountains to the coast. Plus if a year from now u think u want a bigger TT you are covered. Over 10k lbs fifth wheel or TT. I would go diesel but only then. Awesome! This is exactly the kind of feedback I was looking for, stuff based on experience. I know there's lots of truck owners that bought certain models and had a good or bad experience and would swear they would or wouldn't buy that truck again. So cool, thanks for the specifics ???? I agree. I have a 2016 f250 xl 6.2 an it is great. The xl trim will have tow haul, and is simple but effective , and in the end be very affordable

RE: How many people put power awning in every night?

Depends on where i am camping. At the beach and places with wind all the time for sure. In the woods with no wind only comes in when we are not on the site.

RE: Am I the only one this has happened to?

I had something similar happen once at home, except I had the tongue jack (post) directly on the ground and we we got a heavy rain and it sunk. (dirt, not a drive way). This was one of my earliest "oops" with my RVing experience, many years ago. After that, I've kept one of these on the tongue tack post, which helps from the post accidently sinking in the ground. I never remove it. http://i.ebayimg.com/images/i/321915776802-0-1/s-l1000.jpg height=300 width=300 Funny thing is I have one of those, unfortunately it was not on at the time....doh

Am I the only one this has happened to?

Am i the only one this has happened to? I pull into my site, level up on blocks, and start Unhooking in the rain. After I get the WD bars Unhooked I lower back down and unlock the ball latch. I raise it up again (chains still attached), the ball stays in the socket so I add some pressure, it pops loose and because the wet ground the trailer rolls back, buries the wheel chaulk and the jack comes off the block and buries itself too low to get the hitch on the truck under it. A few pump jacks later, the problem was resolved. Lessons learned: don't rush because the rain, and leave the safety chains on as long as you can. I feel like a dope. Been rving for years.

Small town parking. Suggestions /tips

We are in the new England area and driving around we want to hit some small towns in route. Any suggestions/tips for parking with the rv in these areas? We currently have a 33ft travel trailer.
