RE: Towing w/out weight dist -- am I being too conservative?

I'm amazed at the amount of rust and overall damage on a six year old hitch, especially at the price the ProPride comes in at... By comparison, my Reese Dual Cam has almost no signs of its age aside from some surface rust on the bars where the paint chipped away. but it also has no actual moving parts. For the original question... you should be fine with the shorter wheelbase trailer, but I'd still use it for sway control.

RE: Grand Design Travel Trailer RV Transcend Xplor 240ML

I own a 2019 Transcend 29TBS. Lots of good features, but like every brand right now, I'd be careful about buying a 2021 or 2022 model year.

RE: Insect prevention in black tank

Sheesh, all these people dumping bleach and chemicals in the tanks... you do realize that all has to go to a water treatment plant eventually, right? I've never used chemicals. Straight water has always done the trick for us. Never had sewer flies but we never leave valves open, not even the grey.

RE: Want your opinion

I'd rehab what you have if you like the floorplan. Removing windows and replacing the butyl tape is very messy but fairly simple work. Our motorhome had 15 year old appliances but they all still worked just fine despite looking a bit dated. We did upgrade the built-in TV with a LED model, but other than that, if it ain't broke, leave it alone.

RE: Small "peel and stick" solar panels

This would work fine on an asphalt or metal roof. Can't say I'd try it on an RV with a membrane or fiberglass roof.

RE: Camper Overhaul?

Trailer tires are supposed to be good for 6 years. If they're used on a regular basis, yep, six years is reasonable. But tires that sit for 1-2 years on the rim are going to age prematurely. When tires sit, the waxes/oils that help make up the tire don't heat up and won't circulate and that leads to those oils evaporating, and the rubber starts to crack as a result. That's why tires in storage are bagged.

RE: Mobile Router that will auto connect to Wi FI- RESOLVED

So.... why not just use your cell phone as a hotspot if it's already working on all those networks?...

RE: Mobile Router that will auto connect to Wi FI- RESOLVED

Not really clear why you want a router... do you have wired devices you need to connect, or are you just trying to have wifi in your RV? If it's just wifi coverage, I solved that issue by setting my phone's hotspot to have the same SSID and password as my home wifi. I never turn it on at home as a hotspot so there's no contention. All of the kids devices and our smart TV connect automatically whether we are in the truck or the RV. Where I think your request falls apart is having a router recognize multiple networks and expecting it to connect seamlessly. Range extenders and access points are more or less configured to look for a single SSID.

RE: 3/4 ton diesel vs. gas

Unless you're lucky enough to have a truck you only use for towing, buy the truck you need ten months out of the year. Diesels pulls great, but you'll wind up paying more for fuel and DEF year round. And... if your commute is short, diesels are not very good daily drivers. You'll never fully heat up and never get rid of the condensation that can build up in the turbo and elsewhere.

RE: Rain X on Solar panel

I've never washed mine in 15 years. Rain takes care of that for me.

RE: Dometic 300 toilet replacement?

Seems like the dealership should have replaced it on their dime. At least you know it's not going to be an issue later. The porcelain bowls have been a huge upgrade. So much easier to keep clean.

Yes, but there's no pedestal when boondocking, so.......

RE: GM Spokesperson admits energy to charge cars comes from coal

Here's an interesting piece on how un-green solar panel manufacturing was as of 2014... https://spectrum.ieee.org/green-tech/solar/solar-energy-isnt-always-as-green-as-you-think

RE: GM Spokesperson admits energy to charge cars comes from coal

Huh. I worked in China for eight months, and that video is pure propaganda. Sure, the streets where the tourists go are spotless because it's all about outside world image and perception. Go a few blocks away, and you'll find your trash... Go where the manufacturing is, and you can't breath the air let alone gaze at the blue sky.... We were on the 15th floor of a building 100 meters away from one of the freeways. You couldn't see the freeway thru the windows because of the smog.

Makes you wonder if China might be shutting down certain regions again but not telling anyone...

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

My mechanic loves GM's, but that's because they support his business.

RE: Dometic 300 toilet replacement?

I'm not going to alter my opinion of Dometic on someone's interaction with a rep over the phone. I've used their products for almost 20 years, and they have been a solid name because their products hold up. Yes, some of the 300's had issues, and Dometic replaced each and every one that was in the affected batches and still under warranty. Later 300's didn't have the same issue. I'd be curious why the previous owner of your coach didn't notice if there was an issue. Did it sit unused so long that the seals dried up?

RE: Recommendation on 2nd AC

The OP didn't ask whether or not to have a second AC. He asked for a recommendation for "something quiet with its own controls and thermostat". Lol.... Can you go over to the tow vehicle forum and remind people of that courtesy when someone asks "can I tow this with a F-150 gasser", and they get 20+ responses saying "go buy a F-350 diesel" or "Your insurance won't pay for a wreck"?

RE: Recommendation on 2nd AC

All of the second units I've seen have their own controls and thermostat on bottom face of the unit. A pre-wire typically only includes the 110V wiring, unless you're in one of the super high-end units that are made for full-timing. To install a wall mounted controller/thermostat, you'd need to pull wiring for it. Not a problem in most coaches to pull an interior wall panel to run wiring, but it's not for the faint at heart. We've got one separating the bedroom from the bath, and it's been removed a couple times to run wiring from the attic to the basement... YMMV. All that said, we're on our third RV and never have seen a need for a second unit when the main is a 15K. And we did a lot of camping in AZ/UT...
