RE: Auto slider or manual

If your 2018 Rockwood has a rounded front cap, do you even need a slider? I realized AFTER installing a Pullrite I didn't need a slider. I have replaced the Pullrite with a manual slide Reese and have not needed to slide it back since installed 5 years ago. I will say I tried backing up with the manual hitch slid back and it is easier to back up with the hitch back towards the tailgate. The Pullrite was a PITA to deal with. More times than not it would not disconnect.

RE: Why are my batteries water overflowing during charging?

Read the watering section half way down this page: https://www.trojanbattery.com/tech-support/battery-maintenance/ Water should always be added after fully charging the battery. Prior to charging, there should be enough water to cover the plates.

RE: "Lite" 5th wheels

I haven't had any issues with my 2013 KZ Durango 1500. KZ uses the same interior components as their larger units. My model 2857 was replaced with the D277RL a few years ago. Same floor plan. I agree with the smaller tanks and no generator prep comments, but we get by. If they skimped on anything else it would be roof and wall insulation.

RE: 2012 Thor Avanti Diesel

It's not a pusher, PPL misrepresented that. The single AC is a concern with black exterior here in Texas. Thanks for the Thor forum link. I'll read up over there. Thanks for the feedback

2012 Thor Avanti Diesel

Any comments, good or bad on this 2012 Thor Avanti 2806?. Will this Cummins engine be any louder on the road than a Sprinter V6? DW and I really like this one. The Avanti interior seems to be a step up from the ACE and I like the idea of a small diesel platform. Plus it should easily tow my Jeep. Thanks

RE: Texas Beach Camping

I agree with Port Aransas. Lot more for the kids to do there other than just beach. Other considerations would be: Quintana Beach, Brian Beach, Galveston Island, Crystal Beach or High Island. None of which offer what Port A does. Plus the water is cleaner down south.

RE: generator surge

Depending on your model, a new carburetor may cost ~$60. Replace if you are not comfortable cleaning it.

RE: Charging trailer battery while towing and smart charging

Yes I do get that a DC to DC converter should do what I need. But those seem to be hundreds of dollars. Thanks Here is one that does up to 15 amps for about $30 bucks. https://www.amazon.com/Numerical-Regulator-10V-120V-Converter-Adjustable/dp/B01GFVI6R6/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=12+volt+dc+to+dc+converter+adjustable&qid=1575607837&sr=8-3This is the one I use https://www.amazon.com/Voltage-Converter-DROK-Regulator-Transformer/dp/B076TTBKFG/ref=sr_1_19?crid=1W730TNW56RP9&keywords=drok+voltage+regulator&qid=1576918618&sprefix=Drok%2Caps%2C1001&sr=8-19

RE: No more full size cars from GM

We take a 1400 mile round trip three or four times a year in our 2016 Taurus 3.5 non-boost. 80-85 MPH when possible across Texas, it gets 29 mpg. It's my daily driver, 40 miles to work & back. It gets 29 mpg. I can get higher mpg if I hyper-mile, but that irritates people behind me. I love the big trunk and comfortable bucket seats. Prior to this car, I had a 2005 Ford Five Hundred. And guess what? It got 29 mpg.

RE: Adding air bags: can that increase payload capacity?

Actually, airbags subtract payload by the amount of the weight of the airbags and compressor. You are adding weight to the vehicle. Set of bags weighs about as much as 2 gallons of milk and a case of beer. Compressor is like adding a seedless watermelon to the payload. LolWas I wrong in my reply? The OPs question was will it increase his payload. The answer is NO. It will decrease his payload by the weight of 2 gallons of milk, a case of beer and a seedless melon But it's the overtly literal way in which you stated it, that inferred that the dead weight added by the bags may actually be of any real world concern. Although, looking at your sig pic, maybe pulling that 5ver with a F150 you are concerned about every gallon of milk and case of beer adding more weight. Shoot, better start weighing the wife's purse and make sure if you've accounted for healthy bowel movements of all passengers before embarking on a trip!And this is exactly why I left this forum. I'll go away again.

RE: in need of macerating toilet options advice.

Our gray tank fills much faster than our black. To address this, we do our dishes in a plastic tub that fits in the sink. When finished,there is about a gallon of warm soapy water in the tub. I take it to the toilet, open the toilet flap and pour the water directly down the pipe, directly into the tank in a quick manner. Doing this may solve your problem. Yes, it does take a little effort but that might be better than cleaning a clogged integrated grinder. Yuck

RE: Slides- Important stuff AND what they don't tell you.

3) As for power pedestals an easy way is to cut a rope the length of travel the slide makes. Go out and check with the length of rope if you clear the power pedestal. Here's my tip: Our slides pop out 3 feet. That's fingertip to belly button when I hold out my arm. I gauge slide clearance by standing next to the slide, facing towards the front of the camper, holding up my arm and touching the slide with my fingertip. Anything closer to the slide than my belly button (or nose) will contact.

RE: Question for those pulling with an F150 Eco Boost

94K miles on my 2011 without issue. It hasn't blown up yet. Still running the original spark plugs.

RE: Texas

FM335 and FM336, part of the Three Sisters, also known as the Twisted Sisters, is the best Texas has to offer. This rides best for me taking 336 north from Leakey and then take 335 south. Very scenic. FM1431 from Cedar Park and Marble Falls is another great ride. I like riding this from east to west. It starts out wide, lame and congested and builds up to hilly and twisty. This is my go-to stretch when I need my fix. The Devil's Backbone is a stretch of FM32 between San Marcos and Blanco. This is a popular scenic road with sections built on top of a long ridge, making nice views on both sides. This is tame compared to the above but a nice ride. There are numerous stretches worthy of motorcycle exploration in Texas. You just need to explore to find them. There is a nice short stretch between New Ulm and Fayetteville for example. Enjoy and Play Safe

RE: Hurricane advise?

Our local RV dealer parks their trailers as close together as possible, not to protect them from high winds but to protect them from water damage caused from wind driven rain. The windows leak from hours of high velocity, horizontal driven rain.
