RE: Not one but two blowouts

Tire "scrubbing" happens too. Most people don't realize what a tight U turn does to a tire, weakening the sidewals to the point it detatches from the bead. That's how my last "blown" tire left this earth. It ripped the cap (tread section) off the tire too.

RE: Newbie Ques for hitch selection

Some uni-body vehicles should/can not use WD hitches. Read your manual.

RE: Fuel Availability

Can't cry about $6/gallon fuel. Ask a Canadian what they are paying.

RE: Residential vs Gas/Electric Fridge?

You'll probably want a 3000+ watt generator, to run the AC anyway, so why not go that route? A 35' trailer might be 50A with 2 AC's, so, with a 3000W generator, you will only be able to run one AC unit at a time.

RE: camping on TN public lands illegal and a felony???

The intent is to prevent the homeless from camping in non-CG parks and rights-of-way by criminalizing them. They might as well just say "Being homeless in Tennessee is a felony".

RE: Hello from a new member and a question

This is probably the most compact bunkhouse out there: https://www.bayououtdoor.com/inventory/NEW-2022-DUTCHMEN-KODIAK-SE-24171 You might try looking at toyhaulers too. The problem with most bunkhouses is the wasted space when not sleeping. Over half the trailer is sleeping area.

They are trying to stop the homeless from living in Tennessee. Plain and simple.

RE: Delamination - Are we crazy?

To be clear, when I say fridge vent, I mean on the side, not the roof. Thanks Can you access the area from inside the coach? Is there a cabinet door or drawer? You'll have to look inside to see if any real damage has occured. Dryrot can be repaired, if you can get to it. The delaminated spot can be iffy. If you don't mind an area that ends up looking like a patch, easily done.

RE: Can You Swap Brake Controller Temporarily

Ram to GM more than likely requires a different wiring harness. Other than that (after setting it up) it should work. Bob's correct. UHaul should have the correct harness.

RE: Hyundi Santa Cruz

My daughter uses her Subaru Accent to tow a 5,000 trailer. Does it work good? Yes, it has the power. That's all I can say. The transmission already has been worked on. Will it last? Probably not. That little turbo'd engine just doesn't seem, to me, a good idea for towing much of anything. Now, a Hyundai? They already have a reputation for lived motors. Why take a chance on exasperating that issue?

Have you considered a mobil mechanic?

RE: Seeking Simple RV Recipes

No mess omellettes: Crack a couple of eggs open into a quart ziplock baggie. Add veggies. Colse and mix well. Toss into a pot of boiling water for 10-13 minutes. Dump on a plate and top with cheese.

RE: Water Pressure Regulator

I've used that regulator for several years, no problems. Ditto at least mine looks like that, not sure of the brand tho. I have no idea why you's need a $150 regulator. 25 years of RVing, never had a problem with the cheapo's.

RE: Bigfoot dirty water streaks down sides from roof, solutions?

We all encounter it. We just live with the fact we have dirty air, caused by the diesel trucks, coal powered electric plants and other caustic things we humans are use t using. If you rinse off early/often enough, you won't need a grinder to remove it later.

RE: Is there an Air Conditioner using Inverter Compressor

Many people in Australia has installed the household inverter type revers cycle 240V air conditioning in there FW, and also now’s of one using the roof type cassette, not heard of any failure for several years. I and many others have also installed household 240V inverter refrigerator which runs of a 350-375W inverter. Frank. That would work in Australia and Europe. They use 230V as home electric. Here, in the USA, not so much.

RE: Purchasing first TT, need a bit of sanity checking advice

All I can picture is my old next door neighbor hooking up his Chevy 1500 with a good looking offroad suspension to my 10,000 pound dump trailer. I just laughed when his truck's front end was pointing up to the sky. I was sure his front tires where going to come off the ground..... He would have had no steering capabilities had I let him continue. So, I loaned him my Dodge 2500. He then realized he had a car with a truck bed.

RE: No headlights problem please help

Start by disconnecting the wiring. Clean those connections with baking soda and water, then apply dielectric grease when re-assembling.

RE: no charge at batteries

12.7 is a float. You need new batteries.
