RE: EV jump start

Again way2roll ****** I have to remind you that at least some EV oweners tow a TT with their EVs and others tow EVs on a trailer behind a MH for their primary transport from the campground upon arrival. Your continued ignorance or jeal is overwhelming sport. You don't like my post just block me as I but I doubt you know how to. Cheers to those with common sense from 49 states not counting c Doesn't take much to get your knickers in a twist does it champ?

RE: Cold Coffee

It is even more embarrassing to set the Keurig up, press the button, and then realize that you forgot to put the mug in place! Yes, the little catch basin WILL hold 10 ounces of coffee. Guilty. My catch basin won't hold nearly 10 oz though. No better way to start your day than a whole cup of hot coffee all over the counter. Sometimes I need coffee to make my coffee.

RE: Hot Water Not Working

I am guessing winterization/bypass valve.

RE: Mini Split A.C. in their fiver

The main downside I see is that it's not ducted. Is there a problem with your rooptop units? I feel like if they had an advantage over rooftop, ducted units they would use them instead.

RE: Running Two ACs on Gennie - Shutting down

It may be that the generator is overheating and shutting off to protect itself. That's what I thought too but the OP said that the AC's shut down and the genny kept running? To the OP, when it happens you need to get the code from the genny and it will tell you what the problem is.

RE: America's first automated RV park

Ken, It is my understanding that you register online and then answer a email to turn on electricity and water and gain use of sewer. After your term expires water and electricity are cut off remotely. If you think that compares to an envelope in a slot then to each his own. Just an observation is all....seems to me to be needlessly "automated" when other ways already exist. All this online bill pay and no contact shopping and high tech mumbo jumbo is just another way to collect personal information. I dislike it but am forced to participate in it. Just like the self checkout at the store, I don't like it but I have used it. Same with bill pay, I don't like it but yes, it is convenient. All this no contact stuff isn't good for manners in society. A pleasant greeting and a smile go a long way. A please and a thank you go a long way. It' is the world we live in today so we must accept it and participate in some of it. I doubt that is some place I would stay though because they can't take our ability to choose away. It's automated to save costs on labor. Labor is the biggest expense to most businesses.

RE: tire pressure

I use the pressure noted on the tire, not the pressure printed on the vehicle.No, no, no...just no.:S So if one tire on my dual axle trailer is flat, I should inflate the other tire on the same side to 160, right? The two of them average to 80, which is the recommended. I would be good to go without changing the flat! ;)Not really sure what your comment has to do with my comment, nor have I seen anyone saying to "average" tire pressures. However I will clarify that my "no, no, no..." comment refers to motorhomes (which is what the OP was asking about), not trailers. A tire is not specific to any particular vehicle, and the tire manufacturer has no control over what vehicle it is installed on. The pressure on the sidewall applies to the max load the TIRE is capable of carrying, NOT the specific vehicle it is installed on, which is why load tables are published, and which is why ALL vehicles, including RVs, have a Federally mandated tire pressure label on/near the driver door. Simply inflating the tires to that max pressure on the sidewall will almost always result in a hard ride, uneven (centered) tread wear, and diminished handling/braking. It was a joke.

RE: Leaving camper setup and leveled

Your levelling system's purpose is to level your RV and stay that way for an undetermined amount of time. I'm not sure why it would be an issue. Make sure your jacks stay clean and it will be fine. Level is probably better than unlevel for storage.

RE: painting/replacing wheel simulator rim liner

If you don't want the chrome of the simulators, take them off. The only reason they are used is because it cost less to polish the lightweight piece than the wheel. Painting over the plating, and making it stick is PITA. Paint the wheel is easier. Not sure how painting the wheel is easier. Usually there's a ton of dirt and some rust. To do it right they would need to be removed, tire removed, hand sanded or media blasted and then painted and put all back together again. Sure you could try and tape it up on the RV and use a rattle can, but results usually reflect the approach. Trying to clean and remove rust, tape a perfect circle, cover the lugs, the center cap, stem and paint outside without over spray and drips is challenging. Wheel covers come off easy are smaller and snap back on. There's no plating, usually they're polished SS or aluminum.

RE: painting/replacing wheel simulator rim liner

Black wheel simulators for 19.5 comes up pretty empty on google and the ones I did see were as much per wheel as a whole set of standard polished ones. You can get a new set from various places from $300-400. Paint the old ones black and when the time comes to sell just buy a new set.

RE: Bedroom door comes open during travel.

In March I offered how mine worked. Several thousand miles since and still never had a door come open. Your solution was for a pocket door. This is a swinging door. Anyway, I fixed the issue by shimming the hinge. Thanks for all the solutions. I do really like the pool noodle idea. I opted against the coat hook and bungee. While it would work fine, shimming the hinge was the cleaner look I was going for.

RE: Bedroom door comes open during travel.

A rubber band wrapped around the striker plate then wrapped around the door knob on the opposing side? Door closes from inside so strike plate can't be accessed from outside the room. As an update, I shimmed the hinge a bit and it closes more secure now so haven't really had the issue since.

RE: Predator 3500 genny LCD readout not showing AMPS

Guy sold them both before I got there. He was about 2 hrs away. Back to square one. Thanks for all the replies.

RE: Onan marquis 7000 shutting off after like 15 min/overheat

Not getting a code. Maybe it's not overheating you're right. I guess it could be a fuel pump or the exhaust leak. Exhaust leak sounds right honestly as it's hotter than heck and the hot air seems to be blowing as much out of unit as it does out the exhaust and works when cold weather If you are sitting still on a hot day and they are running hard it's not uncommon for these gensets to shut down with an overheat code. The genset panel inside would show a code if that happens.

RE: painting/replacing wheel simulator rim liner

Not wheel covers personally but polished aluminum, yes. The method for painting polished aluminum goes something like : Thoroughly clean the aluminum and let dry. Sand the metal surface with coarse-, then fine-grit sandpaper. Apply self-etching primer, let dry, then sand again. Apply paint - multiple coats, and sanding between coats. Tough to ever go back though once you go through the process if you don't like it or want to sell it in the future.

RE: Pleated Blind Peg

Insert several toothpicks with wood glue and cut them flush when dry.

RE: The Future of Pricing

Prices will fall slightly but overall the trend is always up - on everything. Interest rates are up too and that gets expensive if you borrow.

RE: Water pump not working on battery

I am so redfaced I’m glowing. BB_TX you were right the switch was off..I just bought this trailer and still learning all it’s ins and outs,,I’m definitely going to put a guard over this button. I thank all for your comments and suggestions. Won’t make this mistake again. That was the very first reply. Glad you sorted it out.
