RE: Another noobie question.

The main problem on Dometic 3-way is that it is having automatic between LP and 120V, who can't be overridden ????, when 12V require manual switching. When I plug into 110v it automatically switched from LP to 110 but I can manually switch it back to LP. Or did I misunderstand your statement?

RE: Another noobie question.

I just went out and unplugged my camper from 110v and shut off the LP, it did not switch to DC by itself but my camper is older, I wouldn't doubt that the newer ones do. I always travel with my fridge running in LP. Its on the opposite side of the truck's the fuel door so I never worry about it. It I were to travel through tunnels where they require you to shut them off I would most certainly do that and switch it to DC until I exited the tunnel.

RE: The View

People do see what they want to see... and I choose to not View. ...but if I did, my opinion is that I would want to see 40-45% of the Abbey Huntsman scenery and the other 55-60% of Elizabeth Hasselbeck... either way, that is 100% pretty good scenery. FYI as a CYA, I did not have a TV in my TC nor a TV pulling my TC, is that OK? LMKWYT, LOL. https://i.postimg.cc/k4cjcMy1/thumbs-up1.jpg I've had the privilege of meeting and talking with Abby Huntsman's late grandfather Jon Huntsman SR, the founder of the Huntsman Cancer Institute. He was the epitome of a true gentleman.

RE: The View

Just posting an example of how bad the view is from my front seat. ;) That's Big Rock Candy Mountain, about 12 miles from home. It takes a genius to figure out that the bigger the windshield the broader the view. Pick your poison, a Class A would be my last choice for an RV. https://i.postimg.cc/nVggrrCZ/013.jpg The view from inside a Hino is nice too. They have HUGE windshields. I always thought it was like going to an IMAX theater. https://i.postimg.cc/1tPRLM1C/IMG-3554.jpg It almost looks like my Skyline Week Ender extended further than my Lance does but I'm quite sure they're the same. Maybe I'll measure them when I get back home. https://i.postimg.cc/7Z0kw7Vp/IMG-3566.jpg One time while driving through the Ave of the Giants in CA I did feel the extended cabover cut down on my view. :( I'd never own an extended cab or a crew cab pickup. There are not a lot of nice used campers out there for regular cab trucks, nor are there a lot of newer used regular cab pickups. LOL Like most of you, I love my setup. I figured some of you would like the topic. ;) https://i.postimg.cc/Pf7JqWWx/IMG-3561.jpg

RE: GM 6.6 gas

https://i.postimg.cc/fTm1PcTG/gmc-3500.jpg If I were to buy a new truck today to haul my camper this is what I would buy. 2021 GMC 3500 regular cab 4-wd 6.6 gas with 3.73 gears. I'll never own a diesel, Ram, extended cab or a crew cab. My current truck does a great job hauling my 4000 lb TC. I'd buy a new GM truck in a heart beat.

Tire update - Michelin Agilis CrossClimate

https://i.postimg.cc/Njj6jbfG/IMG-6085.jpg New the tread depth was 12.5/32nds. After putting 24,880 miles on them they are down to 8/32nds. At the rate they are wearing I might possibly see 50,000 miles out of them. I found a really nice set of factory 18" aluminum wheels on eBay today and almost pulled the trigger on them until I looked up the specs in the same tire in 18". One inch taller and they are only rated for about 300 lbs more in capacity than my current 17" tires so I'm going to pass. I am 110% happy with these tires and when they will eventually get replaced with another set of Michelin Agilis CrossClimate tires.

RE: Onan Cummins 2500i inverter generator (Hear it Run!)

When I went to bed around 9pm, it was 92 degrees out still. Its 10:00 AM and 94 degrees here. :E :M

RE: Onan Cummins 2500i inverter generator (Hear it Run!)

Is yours the new inverter model too? Nope. :( I bought it back in Sept 2019. I never heard the original one run. When I took it to get fixed it only had 202 hours on it and the stator had failed. I was told it needed a new stator, that is no longer available and a new rotor. There's a company in CA that would rebuilt my stator but it would take a few months to get it back. The repair would have cost me around $1500. So with the generator being nearly 25 years old with only 202 hours on it and suffering from a major failure I opted for a new one. I traded the old one in on the new one and they fixed my old one and sold it. When he sold it he got paid for the repair and he gave me the difference, just over $400. :B I thought that they treated me extremely fair. I'd recommend them to anyone one. https://i.postimg.cc/C1vqC5Dk/IMG-8573crop2.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/FzMVMpph/IMG-6074.jpg Here's my new one. I had an exhaust shop alter my old exhaust to work with this one. https://i.postimg.cc/4dt0mY04/IMG-0999.jpg The bottom of the enclosure for the generator is closed unlike the newer Lance campers (from what I've been told) which helps cut down on the noise level. Its quieter than my friends portable "quiet" generators. I have 84 hours on this generator and I'm extremely happy with it. I do wish it was the new inverter generator though. ;)

RE: To buy a generator or not...

Now we need some gramma lessons about "brakes" and "breaks" ? I check my gramma more carefully on Mercedes forum, but doesn't serve much purpose here. No offence, we are campfire kind of guys. :)

RE: To buy a generator or not...

Than is used in comparisons as a conjunction (as in "she is younger than I am") and as a preposition ("he is taller than me"). Then indicates time. It is used as an adverb ("I lived in Idaho then"), noun ("we'll have to wait until then"), and adjective ("the then-governor").

RE: Toilet Tissue...

As I remember, a student did the ultimate TP evaluation for her junior high school science project, Soaking it in water, shaking, etc., and determined that Angel Soft performed the best. I'll try to find a reference to it on this Forum? That was MrsMik'd daughter.

Use any toilet paper you want, RV toilet paper is a rip off.

RE: To buy a generator or not...

Everyone uses their TC differently, but many of us never need a generator for more than a few minutes at a time. That’s where the builtin shines. I already have a propane stove, fridge, furnace, and hot water heater, so it makes sense to use a propane generator for those few minutes to run a microwave, top off the battery etc. https://i.postimg.cc/nVBNrCF6/IMG-2237.jpg Same here. I've only run my generator for a few hours at a time a few times when we've camped in really hot weather and returned to camp early like when we camped by State Line on the Utah Nevada boarder last year when it was in the high 90s. We were there for several days and I never ran out of LP. I have no idea how much it burns per hour. https://i.postimg.cc/VvZtmzV4/IMG-4694.jpg I love that little button on the left. :B

RE: To buy a generator or not...

Pony up and get a good one, you'll love running the AC when ever and where ever you want. I wouldn't own an RV that had AC and not own a generator to run it. Even f it wasn't very often. I can use my coffee maker and my microwave any time I want too.

RE: Black tank treatments.

Lots of good posts, thanks. I don't add anything to mine either but I did back when I bought my first RV. I was told in another forum that a bottle of hydrogen peroxide will kill the smell.
