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.

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.

RE: 4" hole in front storage compartment floor

I own a 2016 Big Horn 5th wheel. The holes were there so it could handle a generator. I opted not to have the generator installed, so the dealer covered the hole. He said he would do that to ensure that hitting puddles would not be a problem for my towing. He said that the splashing up of the water would/could harm something in the front of the trailer.

RE: blown fuses for fantatastic fan

I have 50 amp power to the trailer. And few things were on when I tried to put on the fan and the fuse blew. So I am thinking it is not excessive draw. And the trailer was hooked up, not being towed, so it wasn't a hook up problem. I guess I will take it in, pay the piper and have it repaired.

blown fuses for fantatastic fan

I have a fantastic fan that recently blew a fuse. I replaced the fuse, and it was fine. I went out on a trip and went to open the fan cover and noted the fuse was blown again. The fuse size was appropriate. One thing that occurred around 6 months or more ago was there was a water leak around the outside of the fan and water was able to enter the trailer. That was fixed by the dealer. I don't know if there is any correlation between the leak and the fuse burning out, but I thought that I would mention it. What caused the fuse to blow?

RE: Awning lights won't turn off

Are you absolutely sure that there is not a remote for the awning lights. I had the same thing happen to me, and a neighbor said turn off the remote. So I went to the remote, and voila. It turned the light off.

RE: Direct TV deadline April 30. 2019

I recently purchased a Winegard portable antenna (a G2). The antenna says that it does not carry HD but rather carries SD. Does that mean the G2 won't be any good at all?

RE: Def fluid

I agree that DEF is universal. But I have run into DEF which has long passed its expiration date. And the clerk had no idea that there is an expiration date. so I would advise that it is ok to buy DEF from Walmart as long as the expiration date has not come and gone.
