RE: Dehumidifier ?

Yes I have the same problem with my camper. The factory spec is a 8000 btu side wall AC for my small cabin size. But my unit has an upgraded 13500 btu unit. So unless it's VERY HOT outside, it quickly cools the cabin before it can dehumidify it. Two fixes I've found. 1. Compressor dehumidifier, I bought a 90 pint Frigidaire unit. Works great and fast. OR 2. Small space heater set on medium. Keeps the air warm a bit longer so the AC can draw off the moisture. If I'm on generator I'll run the dehumidifier it works better and faster, and takes less power. If camping with included electric, I'll run the heater. If your fighting your AC with heaters you should consider down-sizing your AC unit lol

RE: New camper with very little info on it.

How many dump valves? If two it has separate gray and black tanks. This is probably the quickest way to find out. I would think you would be able to look under the trailer and pretty easily identify the number of tanks as well. You should see 2 or 3 tanks depending on what the setup is.

RE: Stoped routine

I am not sure I have seen anybody mention "kick the tires" yet. Its like a tuning fork for trucks and trailers. You'll know if somethings wrong

RE: Generator / Invertor

Ditto. Have a 2000w Champ inverter, barely runs a few items. Won't run a lot of things without the home made jumper plug to settle the floating ground. Also have the 3400w Champ inverter. It runs everything fine (15,000 BTU AC) and barely groans. You gotta explain that one to me haha

RE: Water Spigot / Thread Issues On Sites

That water bandit is 100% what I am looking for. Thanks guys. And just a followup to the question about how common it is, I am sure its just been a combination of bad luck or timing but I have had my last 2 of 3 camping experiences has issues with threading on my fresh water supply. Bad luck I guess. Thanks for the tip.

Water Spigot / Thread Issues On Sites

I dont know who comes to these camp sites and tries to connect a pipe wrench directly to the spigot threads but MAN, are they sometimes completely destroyed. Last weekend I had to use my fresh water tank for water because the water access spigots threads were 95% gone (only one single thread remained at the top which allowed large amounts of water to squirt through when turned on). In these cases, and in general (like at a dump station where they have purposefully cut out the threads so you cant hook up a hose) what do you guys do? It seems pretty common. I was even at a campsite with two RV spots w/ electric only and the ONLY fresh water spigot was purposefully dismembers to NOT allow a hose connection. Is this just a common thing? Does anybody have any devices that can aid in these situations? Using my hand to "CUP" the hose and spigot to attempt to fill my camper up with water is just way to much work in my opinion hah.

RE: Tow Vehicle Tire Pressure

All my tires are at max pressure per the sidewall information (about 60ish PSI) and I have had no issues at all at highway speeds. I also leave my truck tires at full PSI while driving every day and have not noticed any degraded experiences; still rides smooth and I have not noticed any excessive tread wear. I would consider letting air out if I was to go out on the beach though...... I've put about 800 miles on the trailer like this ( much more on the actual truck)

RE: Water Damage?

That does not appear to be water damage from what I can see on the internet. It does look like the wallpaper has warped or been at some point "wet" but it could be a 100 different things. Checking for active moisture is what you need to do and if its dry, hit the camper hard with a hose around that same area outside and see if it changes. If not, its probably just normal wear and tear on a used camper.

RE: Power Inverters

Hey guys . Just a follow up, turns out the heater does work off the battery alone. Turns out you still have to ask yourself the simple questions “did you turn it on?” *face palm”

RE: Tracking miles of trailer?

Once you hook your trailer up you will be able to create a custom “trailer” and it will track miles that way. Just don’t select it for other trailers (I.e crate a screen for every trailer)

Power Inverters

Hey guys quick question. I was playing with my new TT the other night and wanted to see what would and wouldn’t work off AC hookups. Obviously the AC and microwave don’t work (and any of the 120vac outlets) but what wasn’t obvious was the furnace blower also didn’t work any more. Being gas heat, I was kinda surprised the furnace didn’t run the blower motor off 12 VDC. Anyways that got me thinking, is it common practice to add a second battery and add something along the lines of a power inverter to recreate that 120 vac for stuff like mainly furnace blower, 120 vac for chargers, etc? What inverter to people use? I want to install one but don’t know if it’s common practice or not. What are your experiences ? Thanks guys.

RE: Look for small dual axle TT, no more than 25ft

Hey. I registered here just to tell you to check out the Coleman 215bh; I just picked this after a long time of searching for the perfect small/medium size trailer that meet all the needs for me. The main was a nice double bunk for my son (and future kids/etc). Good luck!
