RE: Power Cable Extension options ??

I am finding this to be very interesting. I still don't believe that all NFPA standards are Codes, therefore, after reading the sections in 1194 and 70, I think there is a huge area of latitude in applying these standards. (Yes I know that the NFPA says all 50 states have adopted 70) In other words does the standard prohibit pulling straight into a back in stand? ........... NFPA has produced over 100 documents, all in some way related to fire safety. Some of those documents are titled as codes and some as standards. 1194 is a standard. 70 is a code. A code is written in a manner that attempts to leave no room for interpretation and can be incorporated by the local “authority having jurisdiction” as local law. All stated requirements include the word “shall” as in “you shall do this” or “you shall do that”. A city ordinance may require NFPA 70 must be folllwed for any building in its city limits essentially making it enforceable law. A standard is written in a less rigid manner and may have a requirement such as “you should do this” or “you should do that”. Or give options to chose from. Every NFPA code and standard has a committee made up of 15-25 unpaid volunteers who work for other companies who are in some way associated with the target area of that code or standard. They meet regularly to review and update the documents if needed. They are in no way beholden to NFPA and NFPA cannot direct them as to what they include in those documents in the way f requirements. On top of that, all requirements of those codes and standards go out for public review before they are actually incorporated. Lastly, none of the documents are law in themselves. They must be adopted by local authorities as local codes to be law. I served as a volunteer on two NFPA committees for 15 years and know how their system works.

RE: Power Cable Extension options ??

Sounds like you bought a new power cord instead of an extension cord. Extension cord is what you need.

RE: Long Term RV Repairs

No repair should take a month or two. ............ But how many times have you seen someone here post about their RV being in the shop for x months waiting for repairs to be made? And the repair shop would not put it in their queue unless they left it at their shop? Easy to say just find another shop. But likely easier said than done depending on location.

RE: External TPMS recommensations?

This subject is discussed a lot. TST seems to be the most popular. But Tire Minder, Pressure Pro, EEZ, and a few others also have satisfied users.

RE: Opinion on Resort Fees ?

If they posted a daily rate without clear indication there as a mandatory “resort fee” I would consider that false and deceitful advertising. I would probably move on when I found out. If they clearly indicate the resort fee in their pricing then it is just a matter of whether I thought it was worth the total or not. But it has been a very rare time I have stayed at an RV “resort”.

RE: A simple idea

By litter I assume you mean things like leaves, pine needles, etc rather than trash. Orange cones are a good idea.

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

My first thought would be you started to turn but changed your mind. I would likely drop back a little until you made up your mind.

RE: Air conditioner shroud

Can’t help with part number. But be careful when removing old one. I replaced a broken one for a friend who was not physically capable of climbing on roof. Lifted up cover and out came the swarm of wasps. He ran and got a can of wasp and hornet spray. Nothing I could do but wait and dodge. Still can’t believe I didn’t get stung even once.

RE: Plug it in or shut it down

Stays plugged in any time in storage. Which means months at a time during the off season. Fridge off if we will not be using it for more than 2-3 weeks because the freezer ices up if left on too long.

RE: 4WD or 2WD

I have had 4x4 on my last 3 trucks. Not because I particularly wanted it, but because it is near impossible to find a higher trim level truck with the options I wanted on dealer lots. I have never used 4x4 while towing. We occasionally get a little ice, sleet, or snow and when driving around I typically do not even engage it for that. I don't off road. And our RV trips are almost always at parks with paved, gravel, or rock pads. Only time I have ever actually NEEDED 4x4 is getting in/out of muddy pasture roads to our hunting cabin. And then only in those few times it was overly muddy. I drive a Ford and the Ford F350 4x4 is quite a bit taller than the 4x2. The newest ones probably too tall for my 5er.

RE: Endurance failure

Or install a tire pressure monitoring system and check regularly while driving instead of every 2-4 hours. Low pressure is not just going to conveniently happen at your rest stops and fuel stops. You check pressure every 2-4 hrs?? If their losing pressure that fast I'd be changing tires. Just finished a 7500+ trip 7K+ on the trailer with Endurance and never lost a lb. No. With a TPMS that alarms on low pressure I don't have to check the pressure. Although with the monitor sitting on the dash I can look whenever I want. You may go years and thousands of miles and never loose a pound of pressure in a tire. Until that one time in the middle of a long drive you pick up a nail and pressure starts to drop without you knowing it until it is so low it starts to overheat and destroys the tire before you start to see smoke.

RE: Ram Sales Increasing

How a positive post about Ram sales has turned into a sh*t show about which brand rusts less than others. Not surprised. :( Some just can’t help themselves. People complain about moderators killing the forum. I tend to think it is more likely these types doing the damage.

RE: Graphics

Someone recently posted on the Montana Owners Club forum that some decals of that vintage were still available from Keystone. They even listed a contact name at Keystone but I don’t remember who it was. .

RE: 2017 montana

Not clear from your wording (honestly due to lack of punctuation), but sounds like it sat for a year without being plugged in. And when you plugged it in your 12 volt stuff was not working. There are some devices that always draw 12 volt power and will drain a battery over time if not connected to shore power. Likely your battery was drained completely. Did the 12 volt stuff work after you pulled the charger back off? Or only while you had the charger on? You may just have a bad battery that will not hold a charge. I would pull the battery and take it in and have it checked.
