RE: Hello from a new member and a question

Google bunkhouse travel trailer and then go to each manufacturer web site and look at floorplans. Lots of options and variations. Find promising floorplans and then search for availability.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

Sounds like a woodpecker on steroids. :B

RE: Ford Trailer Backup Assist

My truck has it but I haven’t used it. But your tailgate rear view camera must be intact as it monitors a special checkered tag you place on the trailer tongue and then you do measurements, programming, and calibration.

RE: Nose High vs Bed Clearance

2” drop should give 7” clearance and get you close to level.

RE: Drill motor for stabilizers

Most any 18 volt will work fine, especially the 2 speed ones with a high speed and a lower speed with more torque. I started with a 12 volt Craftsman single speed that worked well. You really don’t need an impact. They are stabilizers, not jacks.

RE: Explain how emergency trailer brake gets power?

Agree with above. You should always be able to measure +12 vdc on one side of the breakaway switch. If not something is wrong.

RE: Covid in RV Parks

Wearing a mask does protect the wearer to an extent - how much depends on the type of mask. ^^^^^^^^ THIS! ^^^^^^^^

RE: Covid in RV Parks

As long as I am outside I don’t worry much not wearing a mask. But I avoid getting close to other people, and stay upwind from them when possible. Inside or in a crowd outside I wear my mask even though few others still do. One million + US dead and infection numbers rising again, taking all precautions I can. Vaxed and boosted.

RE: Can you list your rv for sale

What are the options to securely handle the money tranfer for a sale? Since my sale was local I arranged to meet the buyer at her bank. The bank issued a check to me for the total price. Don’t know of a safer way. Takes all the worry out of it. Don’t even consider self financing any part of it. I found out months later the buyer had abandoned it at an RV park.

RE: New Ride

The Blue Cruise is "interesting". I have used it a few times and it works well if you are on a major highway with consistent white lines on both side of the lane. Does not work particularly well on the right lane as the right white line is interrupted at entrance and exit ramps and you get a message to put your hands on the wheel. And it will also tell you to keep you eyes on the road if you look away very long. The adaptive cruise control works very well with it. I can see using it on a long drive across open country to relax a bit periodically.

RE: Can you list your rv for sale

Sold ours on facebook Marketplace in 2 days after listing it. Nice thing about Marketplace is you can limit the advertised area to what ever radius you want to keep it relatively local, making it easy to show potential buyers and easy to meet them at their bank to get a bank issued check for payment, removing any concern about that.

RE: New Ride

Congratulations. Took 5 months for mine to arrive also. 2022 F150 KR CC FX4 long bed 3.5EB. Love it. Sold my F350 KR CC FX4 LB 6.7 after selling our 5er. Just in time. The F150 gets 3 mpg better fuel mileage than the F350 and diesel is running $1.40 per gallon higher than gasoline around here. That’s significant.

RE: Power drain

Lots of things that can potentially draw small amounts of current. If you don’t have access to power the best you can do is disconnect the ground wire to the battery. Of course everything will reset when you reconnect it.

RE: hundreds of CD's many in original packaging, mostly country

Sold my old CDs and old vinyl records at Half Price Books. Didn’t get much for them but at least others will get use of them.

RE: No battery power

If you have an auto reset circuit breaker in the battery positive line, that would definitely be a suspect. They are very cheaply made and known to fail. width=550

RE: No battery power

Did you by chance turn your battery disconnect switch?

RE: Add USB to my existing DVD player

My old no-name DVD/5.1 surround sound system in my 2007 5er died years ago. Mine was mounted in a wide but shallow height slot under the TV. So size was an issue. But a trip to Best Buy and I came home with a Bluray DVD 5.1 surround sound home theater system that fit perfectly. The new system also came with new speakers just slightly larger than the old ones. So I had to slightly widen the openings in the cabinet, but not a big issue. Reused the existing wiring. And could have reused the old speakers, but the new ones were better. And sounded much better. I don’t think it had USB but that was 10 years ago. And I sold the 5er so can’t look.

RE: Hot water element

If he destroyed the cladding on the element it may still work, but cause a GFCI receptacle to trip due to electrical leakage to the water. I'd plug the trailer into a GFCI to check before he ends up in a situation where he needs to plug into one. He has a surge protector ( don’t know the brand or capability) that he uses at the power pedestal. Would that have tripped if there was an issue? A surge protector is to protect against voltages spikes. Shouldn’t be affected by the heating element. Especially since it did not burn up. My guess is he just got lucky. I would replace the element as it could be weakened even though it is still working now. Proactive to prevent a later problem at an inopportune time.

RE: Plumbing valve configuration

1/4 turn 3 way valves shown in bypass position for winterizing. Bottom valve in picture has handle pointing to the red pipe meaning water is blocked from the blue pipe to the water heater and, instead, diverted to the red pipe. Upper valve in picture has handle pointing down meaning it is blocking flow from the water heater and, instead, directing water from the red crossover pipe out the upper left red pipe. Upper valve has handle turned to rear to provide reverse flow of valve at bottom. If both valve handles were horizontal, water would flow straight thru the blue pipes go the water heater and out of the water heater straight thru the red pipes, while blocking flow thru the crossover pipe. Google 3 way valve to see how they work.
