RE: Keyless locks

Thanks. I am thinking about putting one in. The thing that holds me back is the videos that show the install. In one, they had to file the opening around the deadbolt. The other video showed the "gap" between the door and the lock. He had to fill in caulking. The other thing is, I have a screen door that has a handle allowing me to open up the main door. Will the opener fit the lock?

Keyless locks

I am sure that everyone has seen the advertising of the Keyless Entry Locks. I was wondering who has them, was it hard to install, any problems with them and why there is such a range of prices on them ($119 to $259)?

RE: tpms vs tire gauge reading

Thanks for the input. I guess the TPMS is doing what it is supposed to be doing, i.e. note a change in tire pressure. I guess I will leave it alone.

tpms vs tire gauge reading

I purchased two things for the trailer. One was a tire gauge and the other was the Tire Pressure Monitor System. First, I checked the pressure by use of the gauge (brand new). The tire pressure showed 110 PSI. After that, I installed a TPMS and noted that the Tire pressure was showing 115 psi (cold pressure). As the tire is used and the day increases in heat, the tire was showing 123 psi. what PSI should I follow? The first gauge that shows the psi to be 110 or the tpms which shows the pressure to be 115. Or should I decrease the amount of air, putting the tpms as priority, in other words putting the psi to 110 down from the reading of 115?

RE: Furrion vision s problem

Did you "pair" the camera to the monitor?

RE: 45 amp adapter-use with a gfci plug

Thanks. I was afraid of that scenario. Oh well!!!

45 amp adapter-use with a gfci plug

Camco makes an adapter which utilizes a 30 amp and a 15 amp plugs to get the user 45 amps of power. It looks like two wires coming to the 50 amp female end, which they say will allow the user to get 45 amps when there is not a 50 amp outlet. But it can't be used with a GFCI plug. Is there an adapter for the 15 amp plug which will allow the user to plug into a GFCI plug? Why does Camco not have it with a plug which would allow it already?

RE: What should the PSI be in the trailer?

Yes they are original equipment tires. I have had them on for 4 years now, and I don't remember how I heard that 90 PSI was the proper inflation for the tires. I recently got a TPMS and the guy said he would recommend 110 PSI for the G rated tires. Thus I inquired what people were doing.

What should the PSI be in the trailer?

I have a trailer which has Sailun G rated tires. The maximum PSI of air is listed as 110 PSI. I was carrying 90 PSI but recently was told that the maximum PSI, that is 110 PSI is the amount of air I need to carry. Which is the amount I should have in the tires?

RE: Rear view camera for trailer

I bought an observation camera for my fifth wheel trailer. It allows the driver to see what is happening behind them when driving as opposed to the back up camera which is only on when the vehicle is in reverse. It cost about $50 more. Furrion makes the most popular cameras, as do Voyager.

RE: tpms

I appreciate all the input. I am going to buy a tpms. Probably the Eez or the TST. Thanks for providing me with the info.
rbp111 02/07/19 01:32pm General RVing Issues

I am thinking of buying a TPMS, a Tire Pressure Monitor System. Is it recommended for a fifth wheel trailer? And which one would you buy?

A backup camera or observation camera on a fiver

I own a fifth-wheel trailer and am considering having a backup camera or an observation camera installed. As I understand the difference is the observation camera shows what is behind you at all times. The backup goes on when in the reverse mode. There are many types of these camera out there, but my preference would be for the wireless hookup. Does anyone have ideas on which one to get? By that I mean backup vs the observation type. And which brand do you use? How hard is it to have the camera installed? Does one have the camera on w/o the lights? Anything else?

RE: Cable reception not clear on some channels

I have a LG tv in the living area and an Insigna in the bedroom area. I am now at home, so I don't have a cable hookup. When I go out again, if the park has cable TV, then I am going to hook up the cable by going outside to the source and feed it through the window and hooking it up to the TV directly. Yes I use RG 6 cables only.

RE: Cable reception not clear on some channels

The reception is the same on the tv in the bedroom. I have checked the antenna booster and it is off. I guess the next step is to run a cable from the source at the place where the power is direct to the tv. Next time I go out I will do that. I guess from the number of problems I have had with this trailer, it was one that was put together after all the good workers left and only the ones who put trailers together that would need repair were left.

RE: Cable reception not clear on some channels

I forgot to say, it does not matter where I am. In different parks, it is the same thing.

Cable reception not clear on some channels

I have a 3 year old fifth-wheel trailer. I have noticed that the reception on the television, that is when I have cable, varies quite a bit. The channels, say 2-10, are ok, a little bit fuzzy, but I can see it. The next channels, say 11 - 20 are hard to see as they don't come in clear at all. They are almost unrecognizable. the remaining channels are crystal clear. I have checked the cable, replaced the external one 3 times. I have checked the connections on both ends and they seem to be ok. Is it the cable inside the trailer? Why would it give different quality of the tv?

RE: Leaking Propane Regulator

I think it is smart to contact Heartland. That being said, I had a regulator go out after 3 years. It had 30 gpsi stamped on it. I checked with a dealer and bought a red regulator that was rated for 30 PSI. It is working now.

RE: Which batteries do I buy.

I was thinking that if you have 2 golf sized batteries, and one battery goes bad, then you are out of all power. So doesn't it make sense to have 2 12 volt batteries, in case one goes out, you would have power. Just asking.

RE: 5th Wheel Qustions

We looked at the Grand Design and the Montana 5th wheels. We settled on the Bighorn, made by Heartland. Look at those.
