RE: How many people has asked why you bought an RV?

I don't recall if anyone has made those types of comments because I would ignore them if they did. I am debt free, pay cash for everything, and no one has any business commenting on my purchases.

RE: Newbie needs advice for 1st RV trip in a week.

Fair warning: Buying a used RV and immediately heading out on a trip is a very bad idea. It might go well but odds are there will be things that don't work, things that you can't figure out how to work, and things that you wish you had. If possible you should spend some time at home in camp driveway before hitting the road with your purchase. This is particularly important with new RVers because it is likely that nothing in the RV is what you expect nor works like you expect.

RE: Help Stoltzfus in PA sold us a brand new leaking camper!

You are ethically, morally, and legally obligated to allow the dealer to make repairs. Slamming them on the internet (on multiple websites) is wrong and talking about disputing the credit card charge is ridiculous. Condensation is normal, everything aluminum in our RV drips when humidity is high. Ever see a cold drink have condensation all over it? Calm down, this is just real life, not a big issue.

RE: Exhaust fumes in camper?

My husband and I bought our first camper this winter and plan to begin a slow 2300 mile trip with it soon. Can anyone tell me if I should be concerned about food in the camper absorbing exhaust fumes from the truck? No worries, it won't happen.

RE: CFL bulbs

Some electronic timers feed a constant minimal current through the lamp and some electronic timers don't, it just depends on the design (and the $$). The type that feed constant current will be 1/2 to 1/3 the cost of the positive off type. They are also wired into the circuit differently. Obviously a mechanical timer will make a complete break when off.

RE: CFL bulbs

Some are missing a key statement, look at the part in bold. Have three of them in front of the outside of my house on a hard wired timer. Been there for a couple of years. Today I noticed that when they were off two of them were flickering a little. One more than the other. They never get real bright and flicker pretty fast. Hard to believe if it was a timer problem as one doesn't do it at all. Any ideas?

RE: CFL bulbs

There are two types of timers. One type is not independently powered and requires a constant small trickle of electricity through the lamps in order to maintain the timer. The second type of timer is independently powered and does not keep the lamps in the circuit when off. I would guess you have the first type of timer which is not recommended with fluorescent lamps.

RE: New TT, New Fridge - Is the venting ok?

Seal it. Also add a baffle between the outside wall and cooling fins so air will be directed through the fins rather than around them.

RE: GFCI keeps tripping. Why??

Always fix what's broke..there's a reason why the GFCI trips. Fires can be costly...Dennis Since GFCI devices are for protecting lives, not property, a loss of life can be very disruptive to a person's future.

RE: What is a Tinker?

...Should we petition the Administrators to have the name changed? Well over half of the posts in "Forum Technical Support" are mistakenly posted in the wrong forum and you expect people to know what "Techno-Tinkers Corner" means? :h

RE: How to test camper is charging batteries on shore power

thankyou all for your advice. looking for replacement. no power going to batteries. Only lasted 2 1/2 years. Its a WF-87/8740. I think it is the red wire out the back of the converter that goes to the battery. Check there before ruling out the converter.

RE: Inside Tire Wear..... Please Help!

Axles are bent or it is overloaded.

You are not supposed to drive vans and station wagons with the rear windows open. Your manual probably states that. Many vehicles have a sticker on the window. It seems your detector is working perfectly.

RE: New sign to me

Shower water is gray water. Any water containing organic matter is black water. This includes food particles from washing dishes.

RE: "Moving your Trailer" Point A to B....

Easiest thing would be to contact some local RV dealers.

RE: Tire pressure

I would run at or near the max pressure. You have P-metric tires and the P means passenger. They do not have a high load rating and have more flexible sidewalls for comfort, not hauling.
