RE: Amazon devices will soon automatically share your Internet

My Wi-Fi doesn't make it to the end of our lawn, how is it going to get to the neighbors? Don't be too sure. I can see my neighbor's wifi from my house sometimes. It is locked of course and requires a password so I can't log into it. But it is there for someone so inclined to hack into. I also can walk down the street with my iphone searching for wifi networks and see many neighbor's wifi sitting out there. Some have wifi names that I can associate with that person so easy to identify whose it is.

RE: RV shower

The above is right on. My 5er shower pan did not have caulk. The raised lip makes it unnecessary. Mine never leaked.

RE: 120v Wires Near 12v Wires - -Problem?

Close together is a lot different than in the same conduit.

RE: 30 to 50 adaptor hot?

Bad contacts or bad wire connection in one of the other. Bad connection equals resistance equals heat.

RE: King pin lock

I always used one while in storage. But never in an RV park or campground. But there had never been any reports of any units stolen out of storage where mine was.

RE: Propane experts

What Old-Bisquit said. Required by National Fire Protection Association standard for RVs. Mine started leaking from the vent hole and I replaced it with a Marshall years ago. Better regulator than the OEM.

RE: Towing Nose High

Once every couple years? I would not worry about it.

RE: NADA guides price change

We started discussing selling our 2007 5er a couple months ago and checked NADA pricing to get an idea of value. Got serious last week and, getting ready to list it, I checked the NADA value again. Yep, about $1,500 higher for my 14 year old 5er than before. Listed it on Facebook Marketplace on Wednesday for NADA average clean retail, got 3 inquiries Thursday, 4 more Friday, 2 more Saturday, and sold it Saturday to the first person who had inquired and came to look. The other 8 were still asking to look at it. No question on price. Probably could have listed it as "highest bidder" and got more. :B But I was happy with the price and quick sale. Marketplace is free, and local to your area, so showings can be quick and easy. Worked for me.

RE: Electrical lighting circuit not working

I would use a long wire for an extended meter lead and check the voltage at the disconnected wire direct to a good ground at your fuse panel. If it has 12 vdc measured direct to good ground you know that part is good and the problem is downstream of the disconnected wire. If it has 3.3 vdc at that point you know the problem is upstream. Tells you which direction to start your search. If your fuses have blown fuse indicator LEDs, the red LED on the fuse should illuminate when you turn the light switch on and the fuse is blown. Note that the indicator LED will only light up if the light switch is on as the indicator LED needs a path to ground thru the light bulb element.

RE: Suburban Water Heater

Just like Boon Docker says. Mine has a Suburban SW10DE, one switch with light inside, and one switch outside on the WH. The inside switch is for WH propane operation. The switch outside on the WH is for 120 VAC operation. And you can operate on both propane and electric simultaneously if you want faster recovery rate. Good if the weather, and therefore the incoming water, is cold.

RE: Best/Favorite RV Resort

Our favorite RV park we went to for years is Fun Valley Family RV Resort. Resort in this case is a little misleading. It is not a high end/high dollar place. Resort refers more to what it has to offer. It is family oriented, but also has a lot of us old timers. We would take our 5er and our kids and grandkids stayed in cabins. It is large and strung out along a mile of the South Fork of the Rio Grand River in southern Colorado near Wolf Creek Pass. They have a restaurant, grocery, laundry, about 15 stocked trout ponds, paddleboats, tube floating on the river, miniature golf, real golf outings to nearby courses, horseback rides, street dances, C&W dancing in the barn, July 4th parades, etc. And short drive to Pagosa Springs, Creede, Great Sand Dunes, Cumbres & Toltec scenic steam railroad, etc. Or rent a jeep to go back country touring. But it is a very active place. Some don't like it because there is a lot of activity, people out walking or bike riding, "train" taking people for rides around the park. It is a very old park and some of the sites are arranged somewhat haphazardly due to smaller size RVs in the old days. We loved the place and had great time. Tons of memories of family vacations together. Now for the disclaimer. We have not been since 2014 due to reduced travel. And the place sold about 5 years ago. New owners have done a lot of upgrades, but have also raised the prices over the very low prices we paid years ago. We have wanted to go back for years, but just have not been able to.

RE: Interstate highway conditions

......... . We'll be on I20 in the morning going east from TX. US 287 in TX is in good shape. ....... If you are going thru Shreveport/Bossier City take I-220 around the north side. Unless they have rebuilt it, I-20 thru Bossier City was the roughest interstate I have ever been on. And that is saying something.

RE: Yikes .... Oven Flames

In other words, if it has an adjustable opening on the burner for air then open it up a little to let more air in so the flame will burn quicker and shorter and bluer.

RE: Washer/Dryer Combo

Splendide combo. DW loves it. Yeah, small loads. But she just puts in a load, sets it to wash and dry, and we go off and do whatever we have planned. Come back to a clean, dry load of laundry. Repeat if necessary.

RE: Durango, CO to Red River, NM

Wolf Creek Pass is east of Pagosa Springs. They will be heading south. But they could head on over to Alamosa or Ft. Garland and then head south to Red River. And they did ask about alternate routes. I haven’t driven to Red River by either of those so can’t comment on them.

RE: Back before cellphones

Cell phones are great. But the addiction some people have to them is a little concerning and more than a little annoying.

RE: GS portal

Try the trailer life portal. Seems a lot less problem prone than the portal.

RE: Iginuity at it best

Can you imagine how much those rear tires are going to skid on a turn? And the stress on the axle, tires, and wheels, especially if they load up the platform?

RE: gas shortages along Interstates

Can you make it from campground to campground without stops for fuel? That would make it easier to decide since you could more easily go searching for stations with fuel after you stop. Maybe carry some extra fuel in the back of the truck.
BB_TX 05/14/21 07:20am Fifth-Wheels

The payload rating of the truck is always the important thing to look at. If the payload rating of the truck exceeds the pin weight of the trailer and the "stuff" you carry in the truck, then the SRW is all you need. Payload ratings of any truck, SRW or DRW, varies a lot depending on configuration; cab, bed, engine, drive train, even wheels/tire size. The boat does not add to the 5er pin weight. In fact, it will actually reduce the pin weight some amount since that weight is sitting on the back of the 5er. Do your homework on numbers.
