RE: Happy Thanksgiving All

Couldn’t find any small turkeys but chicken will be fine. Hard to stuff a chicken but it’ll stuff me! Small turkeys are tough to find - we bought a large one and will just be creative with leftovers.

RE: Dehumidifier overkill?

Most large dehumidifiers require shore power/generator - probably cheaper to crack a vent and run an electric heater/fan.

RE: Twin beds in cabover bunk?

Our boys used sleeping bags - and we kept them apart by putting a couple of our old sleeping bags (still in there stuff bags) between them. Seemed to work. The cabover bed is large and two small kids should have no problem sleeping up there.

RE: Battery Disconnect... What does it disconnect??

Also - your battery disconnect may not be functioning correctly. As I recall mine is based on latching relay which has a couple of fuses. Probably worth a few minute to check whether your battery disconnect is working.

RE: Boondocking? Tell me where

My limited knowledge says that there isn't much near Portland or the Coast. Last time I camped on BLM land was near Steens Mountain which was nice but took all day to get there. I will follow this post to see what else is available.

RE: Snow Chains VS Cables for Trailer

I would drop in to a Les Schwab dealer and get their opinion. Also if you buy chains from LS and don't use them they will refund your money.

RE: I Am severely dissapointed.

If it were me I would start by contacting the Manager of the facility were you purchased the RV. I would explain that they asked you to stay in the RV overnight on their property to evaluate whether everything was working - when you pointing out the water leak their salesmen essentially lied. Now your stuck waiting for 6 weeks. The manager may move you up on the repair list. My experience working with RV repair shops has been that getting mad doesn't help the situation. Talking with the boss often does.

RE: house batteries and generator

Depends on how your rig is wired. Easy to test - remove the battery and try and start the Generator. If you park your rig near a electric outlet you should just plug it in - most modern converters will maintain your battery without harming it - add in an inexpensive Trik L Charger and your converter will keep your chassis battery charged as well.

No expert but FW isn't under pressure and something like Eternabond might suffice. Won't cost much to test.

RE: How cold is too cold?

Takes very cold weather and significant time b4 you have water freezing issues. If your really concerned then you can empty the hot water tank and open the low point drain valves - that should protect you in most situations. Adding an electric heater will provide additional insurance. When weather gets nasty you can consider emptying FW tank and winterizing the rig.

RE: Cleaning out black tank for winter

Unless the crud is significant I would just ignore it - you really don't need a perfectly clean black water tank. If your determined to have a really clean black water tank then consider buying a bottle of septic tank cleaner (available at most hardware stores) - fill the black water tank to the top and give it 2-3 weeks to work. When you drain hold your breath as the fluid will be very nasty.

RE: Blue water in black tank - does it freeze?

If I couldn't dump I would just add some antifreeze - just in case.

RE: Gray tank cleaner

Many of us wash the dishes with Dawn or similar - that should be sufficient to keep grease etc from building up in the Gray water tank.

RE: 1972 Ford RV - Can't find any info

Typical owners manual won't help you with electrical diagrams etc - even in new RV's. Most RV's have pretty std setups. Over simplified .... coach batteries typically run to a main panel which has both DC and AC breakers/fuses. The main panel is usually attached to a converter (converts AC to DC). In many cases there is a wire which runs from the main panel to the Chassis battery .. and that usually runs though a battery isolator (separates chassis/coach batteries unless ignition key in on position). If you have specific electrical issue there is usually someone who can provide you with guidance.

RE: Gas station air/water station water safe?

Its not the public water but the folks who misuse the facilities and cause harm to those who use after them. Never drink downstream of the pigs wallowing upstream. So the only water you take is from home? That's not very practical. In SoCal use your own hose and take a bit of bleach to wash off the bib and your going to be a safe as your home.

RE: when to use "econo mode" on Allison 5 speed tranny?

My recollection - economy mode places your vehicle in mode where engine/air conditioner work at reduced performance and greater fuel efficiency. Many use that mode when they do std driving and switch out when then have to pass/need acceleration.

RE: MaxxAir II Vent Covers - Installation

Might depend on the type/yr of the replacement cover. The ones I have worked with don't require drilling the roof. At any rate - what's done is done and you have to live with what they have done. U should be OK with periodic checking of caulking/sealant.

RE: Gas station air/water station water safe?

Some years back on one of our trips to southern CA there was a dump station along the highway provided by the state and there was a hose close by to fill water tanks and while waiting in line a RVer ahead of us to finish dumping his tanks he then stuck the water hose in the end of the sewer hose and rinsed it out. Drink from an unsecured public water source at your own risk. Who knows what some pig upstream has done in the water source. Makes sense -- but in southern Calif it's a rare exception to find a water source that isn't connected to the same secured water supply as the local community. Use your own hose and you s/b OK. Typical gas station water supply isn't any different than the water supply to the nearby neighborhood.

RE: Another month in border closures.

Be nice if both countries could provide an effective test that could be administered at the border to prove that your Covid free. A bit disappointed that after all this time we still don't have readily available Covid testing.

RE: Dielectric grease for 30 amp plug and receptacle?

Dielectric grease doesn't conduct electricity and probably shouldn't be used on electrical plugs. I suggest using a conductive grease such as Noalox which is inexpensive and can be picked up at any Big Box store. Hope this helps.
