Lighting suggestions for rv building

Hi guys I had a rv storage pole building built that is 40x16 and wall height is 15 feet. It has 3 sides closed to the ground. I want to install some lights inside so it is not so dark in there when tring to back in. I am unsure of the type of lighting that would work the best for me,I don't plan on working in there just need some lighting for when backing in and when I need to get into the rv. Thanks for the help.

RE: Just bought my first travel trailer

If you go with the diesel skip the 2500 and go with the 3500 the diesel engine is heaver than the gas engine. So the 2500 with the diesel will have a low payload capacity

RE: Just bought my first travel trailer

I would also suggest at least a 250/2500. If you are going with a Ford and buying new get a F-350 SRW they are only a thousand of so more than the F-250. I had a 14 F-250 with the 6.2 gas motor pulling the trailer in my signature and now my 16 F-350 with the 6.7 Diesel. The 6.2 is a great engine and pulled the trailer ok, but the diesel pulls it much better. I will not go back to a gas engine.

RE: Gas prices

Gas prices near me today are 2.35 unleaded Diesel is 2.90. Pennsylvania has the highest gas tax and the worst roads in the country, figure that one out.

RE: Water damage under shower.

How long ago did you buy it? Is it still under warranty? If so I would start by contacting the dealer where you bought it. Also you need to get the water dried up asap.

RE: Montana vs. Arctic Fox vs. Grand Design

We are also considering moving to a 5th wheel soon. At the last rv show in Hershey,Pa we compared the Grand Design Solitude and the Montana and also the Reflection and the Cougar. All were the rear living floor plan. We liked both Grand Design units alot more than the Montana or Cougar. We thought the fit and finish was better and they just seemed to be put together better.

RE: 2020 vs '17-'19 Ford 6.7

My 2020 should be in sometime early to mid March, my first tow is mid April. I will know at that point if there is a noticeable difference from the “15” to the 2020 Be sure to post your review after you pull with it. I live in central PA (Clearfield county) I am very happy with my 16 6.7, but am intersted in your opinion of the 20 since we likely travel some of the same routes at times.

RE: trailer wax

Penguin if your trailer is in good condition I would not even consider using Zep floor shine on it. There are many products that are made just the gel coat. Here is one that I have used that works well, Duragloss Marine RV Polish #501. I have been very happy with all of the Duragloss products that I have used and I am now at a point where I use nothing else on all my cars and truck. A good website to visit is autogeek.net You can learn alot thru the forum there and can also order products.

RE: Yet another what can I tow question

This will be my first TT and I just don't want to have white knuckle rides. I'll have the whole family loaded in the truck and I just want to be safe. I doubt we'll travel much further than 4 hours away from our home location which is Columbia, South Carolina (smack dab in the middle of the state). We'll probably hit the mountains of NC or the beaches of SC mostly. Looking at a few campers with a UVW of 5,500. How much other towing experience do you have? I've had a white knuckle ride towing an air compressor or gen-set behind a 3/4 ton at a very small percentage of the trucks rated capacity and had smooth rides towing well over the capacity of many trucks. You can make a 14klb trailer comfortable behind a 1/2 ton if loaded right and set up right (not that I'm recommending towing that much, but I may have done it once...or 20 times, lol). More to your question, pretty much any trailer you're looking at with a 5-6klb uvw will be handled well by your truck, if set up properly. You can obsess over every pot, pan and case of juice boxes loaded up for the trip and make multiple trips to scales and produce spreadsheets and calculate, to the pound, your loads vs your rated capacities, but in the end, that truck will pull a med size TT quite well. What cannot be accounted for is the driver's ability and experience, which is not insurmountable. Take it slow at first, minimize distractions, practice some before loading up the family for summer vacation and it'll be easy going. In my opinion Grit is 100% correct.

RE: Gas grill replacement

About the 1 pound tanks. About a year ago I bought an adapter to fill the little tank from a 20 pounder. Works great if you follow the directions. My gas supplier charges $5 to fill a 20# tank and I can fill about 12 of the 1# before the pressure has gone down too far, unless there’s good sunshine to heat the tank. Then I can get a couple more. It would be great to fill a 20 pound tank for $5. the cheapest I can find around here is $18 for a 20 pound tank.

RE: Help with towing math and trailer /vehicle specs

It will pull perfectly fine. But good to see all the weight ninnies and gotta getta diesel dudes made it through New Years Eve! If you read what I wrote. I said that I tow with a diesel because I perfer the way they perform. At no point did I tell the op that he needed a diesel to pull his trailer.His truck may preform just fine to him or it may not.

RE: Help with towing math and trailer /vehicle specs

I think your truck will safely pull that trailer. The question is will you like the performance of it? only you can answer that. The 5.3 is not a powerhouse of a engine and the 3.42 gear is not the greatest towing ratio. You will be slow in the hills and the transmission will be shifting alot,make sure you have a transmission cooler. Since you already have the truck hook it up and see if you can live with the performance of it,if not it is new truck time. My personal opinion is I think you would be alot happier with a 6.0 liter and at least a 3.73 gear. Just wondering, are you speaking from experience? I live in the mountains of Western North Carolina. I’ve pulled all over the area and have never felt the 5.3L was struggling. Just the opposite, as a matter of fact. Put it in tow haul and the tranny takes care of itself and the temps stay normal. Very easy to hit interstate speeds without flooring it or maintain speed going uphill. As I stated performance of the truck while towing is a personal opinion. What may be good performance for you may not be for others.I tow with a diesel because I don't like the way most gas engines pull. I do think his truck can tow his trailer safely.Is he going to like the way it does it. is a question only he can answer after he tries it.
