Sewer smell strong in trailer when dumping??

When he dumps and the hose all sealed from trailer to ground they get a strong brief smell in the trailer. Windows and doors all shut. What’s going on here?

RE: Whitehall to Dillan?as opposed to I 15

Using google earth it looks like it could easily average about 1300 feet lower in elevation. Just a short higher climb between Butte and Whitehall.

Whitehall to Dillan?as opposed to I 15

Last year we stopped for night in Dillan. Ran into a man pulling long bumper pull RV. He suggested we use hy 55/41 from Whitehall to Dillan as it is a lower elevation route. 2 lane but not busy. Thoughts?

RE: Discount on fuel if paying with cash??

Well you all are sure enjoying the discussion I started. I note there is only one other Canuck commenting. The rest of you have the luxury of being a lot closer to the warmer climates and you can get there using real money. Not the funny money us poor freedom loving Canadians are saddled with. We already are taking a hit on our funny currency so having to look for the best options and curbing our wandering is all part of the pain. We do it anyhow because it is that time of our lives. I sometimes think that our lousy government manipulates a lower currency in an effort to make Canadians stay home. I feel so protected. Thank you my American friends. You have a great country and I do feel blessed to have you as a neighbour. I have posted many a question here over the years and I appreciate the always quick response.

RE: Rt 99 Thru Bakersfield

Speaking of western state highways (and maybe this should be in a tread of its own) I found it puzzling that in traveling north last March there are signs suggesting that trucks with trailers stay in the right lane and go slower! I never obeyed this directive if I was going through. Seems ridiculous that trucks and trailers stay in a lane where traffic is trying to merge on and exit off. I have always felt safer in a center lane, maintain the speed of the traffic, and stay out of the way of those trying to get on or off. These kind of laws must be implemented by people who sit behind desks and not a truck / motor home dash.

Yellow window frame on door. Ugly. What to do?

Tape it off and paint it black like the rest of the windows? Other plastic stuff has yellowed too. Like the “marine” speakers. I have also considered replacing the glass with “one way” glass so we can see out. Thoughts?

RE: After oxidation removal what next if anything?

Before tackling this job I removed the old cracked up decals of scenery pictures. Front ,back sides. Leaving just the swoosh decals that had been redone on this 08 Cedar Creek. I used GraphXoff.... https://forums.goodsamclub.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29877310.cfm Trailer looks much better with the graffiti gone??

RE: Samlex remote switch cord to short

To mount the remote switch inside trailer the supplied cord is to short. And it is different than a telephone cord.

RE: Charging trailer battery while towing and smart charging

You are pulling with a Suburban so what I do is not an option for you how ever I will describe what I do for the benefit of all. I use a “20amp Smart Charger around the farm year round and we have a 2000 Yamaha gen/inverter. I fished an extension cord from the 4 - 6 volt batteries to the fifth wheel hitch. I set the gen on eco in The back of the truck, plugin the charger and clamp to the batteries. If we use the furnace all night while boon docking on the road the house batteries get charged properly as we cruse down the highway. A heavy gaged wire from your truck battery to trailer batteries may take out your alternator.

I also use it on the front of the truck all summer for the same reason.

RE: After oxidation removal what next if anything?

I originally bought ReJex for the boat as it was recommended for “lake stain”. Most definitely worked. I found the product at Woodies RV in Edmonton. There they told me the staff was using it on their cars. So I tried it on the front of our fifth. A couple years ago I parked the trailer in the fall and did not get around to cleaning the bugs off the front. In January we headed south. When we went through Salt Lake it was raining hard. The bugs all slid off. I’m sold on ReJex.

Samlex remote switch cord to short

I mounted the inverter very close to batteries but the cord (looks like telephone cord) is to short to reach inside of trailer where I would like it. Does Samlex have extension cords? Or is this cord exactly like telephone cord?

I am using Mothers finishing polish with an electric polisher and it works great. Really brightens it up. Is there any need to apply a wax?? I have used “ ReJex” on our boat and the front of the fifth and will again.

RE: Removal of 10 year old trailer ugly decal pictures

GraphXoff is well worth the money. Highly recommend it. With two bottles I removed the huge decal off the front. The big ones and smaller ones on the sides and one on the rear. All were the ones that were scenes of covered bridges over rivers. Trailer looks much better with them gone. The swoosh decals had been replace at factory apparently and they look good. Yet
