RE: Tire Wear

Either over loaded or bent axles.

RE: Generator Gas

A tee, valve, and hose connected to the vehicle fuel line would allow the vehicle fuel pump to fill your generator tank.

RE: Propane fridge operation

Normal, if you read the manual it may say it takes up to 24 hours to cool.

RE: Pop Up Camper - Hail damage repair

No recommendation but hail damage often means a totaled vehicle. All those small dings cost a fortune to repair. If I didn't have insurance to cover it, I would just use it as is.

RE: NORCOLD 1200LIR showing "lo dc"

If you "bought a battery charger to keep them charged", why are they dead? When driving, the alternator should be charging.

RE: Thoughts on LowClearances.com software.

Does this cover main highways or all roads? The standard minimum on main highways is 13'6" so only the ones lower than that need marked.

RE: Plexiglass on bathroom cabinet?

I have done similar. You have choices. Plexiglass (technically acrylic) is more resistant to scratching but more breakable than Lexan (technically polycarbonate). Lexan is slightly less clear but due to strength is used as a bullet proof shield. Lexan is also more prone to yellowing. I would suggest you stick with acrylic. It will get scratched and need replaced in time. It is also likely to get dirt between the cabinet and panel. Attach using clear 3M Dual Lock in the corners so it is removable.

RE: Considering GD 350m and 2016 Ram 2500 Laramie Crew

Nice trailer it is one we are considering. We prefer the 348 and are also considering the 327 or 328. You will want a 3500 SRW minimum and a DRW would be better. A full size bed is more useful and eliminates the need of a slider.

RE: Portable gas can rant, and a really good solution

This forum may not present a perfectly random sample of users, but I am struck by how many of us are disappointed by the currently-mandated "push to pour" nozzles, which I think are dangerous (as well as a hassle to use). Does anyone know if the regulatory agencies are re-thinking this issue?? I seriously doubt it.... Oh, but they are. Due to the fact that all Americans are imbeciles and unable to pour gasoline without either spillage or the release of toxic fumes into the air all gas cans will be outlawed. When you need to gas up your mower or generator you will either take the device to your local gas station or hire an EPA approved, licensed, and Hazmat compliant delivery service to bring gas to you and pour it for you. :B

RE: Generator Exaust

Thanks for all the input, I've been weighing installing solid pipe all the way up, much hotter I know, making my own.... Do not simply extend the exhaust pipe any distance, it will cause a lot of back pressure. The Gen-turi and home made replicas do not cause back pressure.

RE: Who was this?

Here is one of the post that talked about a conversion. Converting my dully to a 10 wheel drive to handle Toyhauler Made it clickable for you. If I remember correctly after all that work he couldn't pass inspection and get it registered for street use.

RE: Who was this?

I believe the thread referred to was in the toy hauler section.

RE: Air Conditioner Test

Was just in Oklahoma where the top temp for the days was 99 to 100 I believe. The highest the camper got in the middle of the day was around 78 with both ac's running. Pretty close to 20 degree difference we expected.... Many people seem to misunderstand the 15 - 20 degrees. It is intake air and exhaust of the unit, outside temperature is irrelevant. If the intake air is 95 the air coming out should be 75 to 80 degrees. As the room cools the intake air obviously is cooler, so when the intake air is 75 degrees, the output should be 55 to 60 degrees. What the OP doesn't realize is that he has a problem with his unit resulting in the very low temperature output. What is happening is that due to defective separation of the intake and output, it is cooling the same air over and over again. The baffle between the intake and output needs fixed. Ha Ha, If I have a problem with my unit I'm happy for the problem. It works well. See my second post. I'm glad you are happy but the premise of this thread is that your A/C unit disproves the rule, it does not. In fact, your test proves that your unit is operating inefficiently due to inadequate separation.

RE: "Stuck" in Ohio - Workhorse W22 stalls going into gear

...The mechanic...drove it around for 32 miles and had no issues...maybe that was a freak thing. Unfortunately freak things tend to repeat themselves at the most inopportune times. Hopefully it won't happen again.

RE: Under hood inverter install? Chev 3500HD

another option. can the second alternator be configured to supply 120VAC.... There were two optional electrical systems, one system does have two alternators, mine has a single large alternator. sorry about the missunderstanding. However, how about adding the second alternator?? the bracket is already there, and changing the serpentine belt to the dual alternator would let you drive it. Might be easier to set up than the factory dual alternator setup. Nah, I have an extra inverter and cables. There is no reason to go to the added expense and complexity of adding an alternator.

RE: Realistic Grand Design Pricing

Keep in mind that there are a lot of options available on the Momentum. There can easily be $10,000 in options on one that are not on another. You must be sure to compare apples to apples.

RE: How many amps to run AC

I burned up my A.C. running on 20 amp was not cheap I don't deny that your A/C burned up, I don't know. However, I can guarantee you it was NOT because it was on a 20a circuit. Look in the RV breaker panel, your A/C is always on a 20a circuit. A/C units are damaged by low voltage. You can have low voltage on a circuit of any amperage. Ever hear of a brownout?

RE: A/C and All-Season

A 30' trailer with a single A/C unit? Definitely go with the optional 15K. Many RVs that size have two or even three A/C units. An "four season" RV will have the tanks and all valves located inside so the furnace protects them from freezing. Some also have heaters installed on the tanks.
