RE: Looking ideas pop up roof section

Look at A-Liner pop ups for ideas.

RE: Auxillary Fuel Tank ?

This is the only manufacturer of gas transfer tanks that I have been able to find. http://atitank.com/products/auxiliary-fuel-tanks/

RE: What do you do for condensation inside cabinets?

If the outside metal of the van is the back side of the cabinet some ridged or even reflectix type insulation would help.

RE: The future cost of RV stay

The EVSE(charger) that I have plugs into the same 50 amp plug as an RV. So as already stated if you are going to be at the campground a while you can charge the TV off the pedestal in the site.

RE: Electric vehicles

I own a Chevrolet Bolt EV. What I have learned since owning it is that the battery temperature needs to be maintained somewhere around 70 degrees. So when it is cold ou the battery needs to be warmed. The colder it is the more energy it takes to keep the battery warm. Also heating the passenger compartment takes a lot of energy from the battery, more than AC in the summer. So what it looks like to me is the battery pack in the busses is under sized for what they want it do.

RE: Replacing a Travel Trailer floor

As already mentioned if you are going to pay a shop to the work is is going to cost a lot of $$$. It might be cheaper to buy a replacement trailer than to pay to have yours repaired.

RE: Happijak Bunk Mod - are 3 Bunks Possible?

I think it would work. You would need a set of the brackets that are used for the upper bunks to attach your new platform and drill holes at the height you want it to be.

RE: TT Toyhaulers - What Else is Out There

I really like my Evergreen Amped 28fs. It has 170 fresh and 50 black and grey tanks. The company is out of business if that matters to you.

RE: Deep cycle battery for AC?

There is one other option not mentioned. Stay at a hotel.

RE: Trailer with fixed coupler so it doesn't pivot

At my work we have a small trailer that can't be seen in the side mirrors. Fortunately it has a long tongue. When backing it up I put the truck tailgate down and I can see everything I need to see in the rearview mirror.

RE: Adjusting Weight Distribution Hitch

I think you will need at least 2 holes lower than you started. Depending on your shank you may need to replace it to get enough drop.

RE: bottle jacks for stabilization?

I added a third set of scissor jacks just in front of the axles. They make a huge difference in the stability because they do not allow the springs to flex.

RE: Gas engines in school buses coming back?

Besides the Ford V10, the other player in the gas bus motors is PSI. They have an 8.8L (540 ci) that can be used with gas, or propane. I am not sure if it can be set up for CNG. This motor is basicly an improved and stroked chey 8.1L and is likely the larger than 8L engine that GM has been teasing. Navistar makes bus chassis's with this motor.

RE: Water tank size.... What would you do?

Your lines are probably hooked to the tank like mine are. On mine the drain is connected to the tank bottom. The connection for the pump is on the side of the tank about 1.5" above the bottom, and the vent is about 1.5" bellow the top. This reduces the usable water volume by more than you might think. So far i have plumbed the pump into the drain connection and plugged the original connection. I still want to relocate the vent higher.

RE: Largest, Cheapest Class A or Travel Trailer?

Evergreen Amped 28FS I also think a toyhauler without a seperate garage would work. The link is for the model I have it will seat 11 and has 2 queen beds and when the seating is converted to sleeping configuration 1 more queen and a twin.

RE: Can't bring TT home because of neighbors parking in street?

It would seem to me if there is not enough room for you to get around the cup di sac, there isn’t enough for your local fire department either. That would be illilegal not to mention a serious safety concern. Bring it to the HOA’s attention and or your local fire department. I would think the fire department would intervene on that parking situation. Dan This is what I was thinking.
