RE: What is the best safe for a TC?

The "best" safe is don't take valuable with you ! Realistically, you aren't going to take the time to put a laptop and hard drive inside for a meal out. LCD TVs under 32" are ridiculously cheap (meaning a thief would be lucky to get $10-$20 for one). I would suspect, most people who take a gun with them are going to carry it. I would suggest not carrying it in DC or MD. bumpy

RE: What is the best safe for a TC?

I bolted down a pistol safe in my RV. if you want a fireproof safe, additional problems will ensue. unless you are a full timer with no other options, you shouldn't need a fireproof one anyway. bumpy

RE: How did I do this? - Bent Ball Mount

The OP didn't ask for opinions concerning the hitch brand. Bashing the hitch brand or its the brand products sure doesn't help the OP with his question. I would look at a new hitch with the same part number and see if it looks the same. This website needs a no brand bashing rule like one of my non rv forums that is ham radio/electronic Communication devices/etc. They have a no tolerance policy. One bash and your history. Its a great forum to learn without the "my brand is best and the other brand is junk" that is a fact of life on the website. from reading this thread, it appears to me that this was operator error. started out as "bashing" if this meets the definition, but after discussion, operator error. bumpy

RE: Camco sewer lugs out of spec? An easy fix but very odd

one of my trailer rims had the China QC failure. there is a "hubcap" covering the nuts designed with a tab to slip in a slot and directly opposite that a small bolt holding it in place. the problem, the slot was off one position and I had to just fasten the bolt to hold it on and the tab/flange just rested on the rim, not in the slot. I have to believe that there must have been hundreds of similarly cast rims out there that folks should have complained about. bumpy

RE: What are your opinions on the new Ekko ?

that piz towards the rear steps/bed/etc reminds me of a Newmar years back a very small class a with wet bath and about a 6 cu ft refrigerator, for big bucks. bumpy

RE: Living in a Trailer

sorry for your situation. I would suggest looking into a park model for full time stationary living. bumpy

RE: Value of Spare Tire and wheel

It looks like the nonessential stores are really essential. my friend in New Jersey owns a print shop. it is essential so they can stay open and print up menus for the restaurants that can't open up. way to go gov. bumpy

RE: Electric space heaters

Heat strips are useful down to about 40 f. If it is cold than that the air conditioner fans don't like it. also, the semi warm air from the AC fan does not feel hot when it blows on you. bumpy

RE: Electric space heaters

I was also thinking about a heat strip in the A/C. We had an old Terry that had a heat strip and it was really good. Was old enough that we didn't have duct work but came out of the bottom of the A/C unit. Took the chill off and you didn't run the furnace. Do they still make them? Curly since they put out so little heat, much is lost if you have to heat up ductwork, etc. of limited value. bumpy

RE: Running CPAP Without Utilities

With the CPAP I have the humidifier half can be unhooked and the hose connected to the back output that formerly connected to the humidifier. I bought a 12 volt adapter cable and I run that off a dedicated 65 Ah AGM battery. Without the humidifier the power consumption is low and I can run 5 nights no problem without recharging. Could probably stretch it to 7 if needed. I found wetting the nose piece helps with the lack of humidifier. Have dry camped about 25 nights this season with this setup. you might be able to just leave the two connected and dial the humidifier down to off. it will then just work as a passover unit? bumpy

RE: Electric space heaters

Hi, I would avoid digitally controlled heaters. If the power "blips" they may turn off. thanks, I didn't think of that. but at least they wouldn't blink "12:00" :) bumpy

RE: Running CPAP Without Utilities

don't run the humidifier (or get a passover type) and don't use the heated hose and it will run a long time. bumpy

RE: Electric space heaters

On a ceramic type heater, with a fan and screen in front of the heater bars, the surface is not hot enough to burn someone who touches it. Possibly a little uncomfortably warm, but not enough to burn. And like I said, check the tip-over protection. Most use a simple pressure switch on the bottom. they are hot enough to char a bed spread. bumpy

RE: Electric space heaters

I've always just used the basic little cube style heaters. They go to 1500 watts and 2 different fan speeds. Don't use them with an extension cord or plug strip. Check that the tip-over cutoff works. Set them in a place where they wont' get pushed against anything cloth or plastic. They are perfectly safe. I will add, don't set them on the floor next to the bed as they can scorch a circle on the blanket when/if it comes in contact. :) bumpy
