RE: Does Your State Require a SBS

......... Please no editorials on whether or not they are needed or what you have installed for your rig, or what you think your state requires. As Joe Friday used to say, "the facts Mam, just the facts". Didn’t take long for that request to be ignored! :S

RE: DPF Delete Recommendations for Dodge Cummins

Just be aware that it is illegal to do the delete. And it is illegal to sell it. And dealers probably will not take it in trade. Since you are specifying it in liters and kilometers, I assume you are in Canada. Don't know what the laws are there.

RE: Which Cell Phone Carrier is best in specific locations?

You can't really tell from a map. We live just outside a city of 200,000 people with generally good cell signal. But for some reason the area at our house and a couple miles around, cell signal for both AT&T and Verizon is weak to the point that some times it is hard to make/receive calls. Go 2 miles in any direction and signal is strong. We had AT&T for years. But due to a very poor customer relations experience with AT&T, we changed to Verizon. Overall in our travels Verizon has been best.

RE: Replacing a propane pigtail

There are at least two different type fittings. Years ago I replaced my high pressure regulator valve and the old pigtail would not fit it. Had to take the fitting from the old regulator and install it on the new one. You might be able to buy an adapter. Check your local well equipped hardware store.

RE: Towing speed

I tow the 5er up to the posted limit but no more than 70.

RE: RV Ovens

Pizza stone for us. Makes a lot of difference for that over browning on bottom.

RE: Please help me identify 5th wheel towing issue.

Actually it is called chucking and is caused by the push-pull effect of the truck and trailer on uneven road surfaces. Mine has some chucking on some concrete roadways even though they appear smooth. And none on others. And almost never on asphalt. Since you already have a Moryde pin box I don’t have any other suggestions.

RE: Car and Driver octane test

We used to have a Lincoln Navigator. But annoyed me to no end that it specified 93 octane. Traded it for an Expedition with same engine but tuned to run on 87 octane.

RE: Wheel Bearing Repacking question

He may take your money, but I doubt he repacks that often. Probably after several thousand miles.

RE: Stranded/broke down

Having just filled up, and no previous problems, I would guess bad fuel.

RE: 2nd AC and Vent cover questions

Some rigs are set up for the 2nd A/C to be ducted into the same duct work as the primary A/C and have a dual zone thermostat to control both. Some are not.

RE: Convection vs Standard oven

Our 5er has both a standard oven and a microwave/convection oven. We more often use the convection oven to bake rather than the standard oven.

RE: Are Airstreams low maintenance?

Yes and no. Like any surface, aluminum requires some care and feeding. If done right, you'll have many years of service, perhaps longer than you'll live to enjoy. If not done right (or if not done at all), you'll have yourself a nice, expensive nightmare. :) Lynn Actually, the airstream aluminium is clear coated and requires no maintenance except routine washing with a clear coat safe automotive wash. It never needs polishing or other care. No typical black streaks. Sure all appliances are RV and will require some maintenance. That certainly contradicts what Airstream Inc. recommends in the link above.

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

......... One thing that few people think about: until somebody can build an electric motor that is 100% efficient there will be a "cost" for running an electric motor. That cost is the inefficiency of the motor, which manifests itself as heat! So, in the end electric motors actually cause global warming! You think an electric motor gives off nearly as much heat as what comes off a hot internal combustion engine, it’s radiator, it’s exhaust piping, and hot exhaust gases from the tailpipe?

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

Only thing holding back electric vehicles is battery power. Electric motors certainly have the motive power. After all locomotives use electric motors to tow mile long trains. BUT, they have diesel powered generators for electric power. Whenever battery technology reaches a significant new level electric vehicles will take off.

RE: Correct inflation of trailer tires

Even tire different manufacturer web sites don’t agree. Some provide recommended tire inflation charts based on loading. And from a maximum rubber to road contact viewpoint, and therefore maximum traction, that certainly makes sense. But it also means you have to know the weight on each tire. Other sites simply say inflate to the max pressure as stated on the sidewall. That is probably the safest approach, and certainly the easiest. Downside is that if the weight on the tire is far less than the max load rating, there would less rubber contact to the road as the tire tread would be more rounded, the tire may wear faster in the center of the tread, and the ride could be harsher due to the tire being harder. Take your pick.

RE: Dog won't go into RV

Why does it need to go into the trailer? I don't argue with mine about it, and don't feel the need to have to dog at my side, or underfoot in the tiny trailer. I'd never lock mine in the trailer, never seen a point to that. Because many RV parks prohibit unattended dogs outside. And we would not leave ours outside by herself anyway. And since we sleep in our RV our dog is always inside at night. To OP, you might try a harness with a handle on top that you can help the dog up the ramp without him being able to pull out of the harness. We also use a ramp.

RE: Trailer entrance assist

There are a number of options available. Here is one. If you google RV power lift steps you will see a number of others.

RE: 30 amp or 50 amp

Are asking if you can change the 30 amp breaker in your RV to a 50 amp? Or if you can change the 30 amp breaker at your house to a 50 amp? If your RV has a 30 amp breaker in it, then changing the house breaker to 50 amp will do nothing for you. You are limited to 30 amps by the RV breaker. And you do not want to change the RV breaker to 50 amps. As stated above, you need larger wire for that 300’ run. Have you checked your voltage level in the RV? Probably dropping too low with those things running at the same time.
