RE: Residential W/D?

Looks like Cummins12v98 got it to work. Not sure how hard it would be to run 22o to the area...I am not an electrician or a plumber but I am pretty handy. Never saw the gray pipe type setup in the photo before, are those to help prevent leaks or are they backflow preventers?

RE: Residential W/D?

I think if you tried to use a residential it would be too heavy, the electrical set up in mine is for 110, not 220 so a residential electric dryer would not work, might have to take out a big window to get it in, at least that is what I was told about a fridge. And the footprint of the unit might be too big. I think you would have to do smaller loads so you have plenty of hot water and don't fill your black (or gray?) tank too quickly.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

I heard Carlisle are now made in the USA....I guess TN. Heard it from a tire guy and saw it online too.

RE: X-chocks and 6 point levelers

I use mine before I unhitch. Then after leveling, I check again because once or twice they were loose as another person mentioned. When it is time to leave, I hook up, take them off then retract the levelers.

RE: Propane generator..

So I must be one of the few that uses a gasoline generator. I do not have a whole house but I have it wired with a transfer switch. I have many 5 gallon gasoline tanks ready to go. Since they can go bad, I wait a couple months and then use it in the cars, and then refill. Natural gas would be my first choice, then gasoline before propane tanks because it is easier to fill a five gallon can than re-filling propane---meaning the stores might be closed.

RE: Posted This on the Class C Section, by Mistake

Nice work... . If Rvs come with a residential fridge, why not a freezer if it works for you.

RE: Fitness Watch??

My wife has the Forerunner 35 and really likes it. She likes to run but we also ride bicycles, play some tennis etc. It connects to the Garmin app on her phone and even tells her how she is sleeping.

RE: Battery/Inverter question for winter

There is 10 volt power to the inverter. I am guessing it is sort of a bypass for when plugged into shore power. I do not exactly know how these works. I have no idea how it is wired to the A/C outlet the fridge is plugged in to. Is the A/C power there to charge the battery? Does plugging into the outlet basically backfeed it to the plugs? The info on the website for it says plug it into an outlet to connect it to the A/C system.

RE: Battery/Inverter question for winter

The owners manual was worthless. Thats why I came here to ask. This is my first experience with inverters. When I bought the trailer, the dealer said leave it on all the time, but this year I took the battery out for the winter. Normally I keep it in the trailer but I want to see if I can keep my battery alive a little longer by not leaving it out in the winter.

RE: Battery/Inverter question for winter

My inverter has a 120 volt plug. It was clicking when it was plugged in. I unplugged it just so there would be n o juice going to the battery cables in case they touched. Jus did not know if turning it off with it not attached to anything would cause a problem for the inverter since 120 volts is still going to it.

RE: Battery/Inverter question for winter

Inverter is WFCO Model WF-5110HP. Last year kept the battery in and the trailer plugged in. It gets too cold here to leave the fridge on all winter...and there is nothing in it, but come summer, I leave it on with items in it.

I carry 2 sets of blocks (the plastic stacking type), but have not has to use them yet.

Battery/Inverter question for winter

I removed my battery for the winter. I turned the battery disconnect to off because I keep my trailer plugged in all winter. Do I need to unplug the inverter? It is used to supply 120 volts to the residential fridge when we tow. Fridge is off. The reason I ask about unplugging the inverter is because once the battery was removed, I would hear a click every couple of seconds. I don't think I need power going from the inverter to the battery cables that are now disconnected but this is my first rig with an inverter.

RE: Cleaning the carpet?

I have a Little Green Machine, it is portable. I use it at home for spot cleaning but I have used it in the trailer because there is not that much carpeting. Even in our bedroom, which has the most, it does not take that long.

RE: 5th wheel life

Congrats. I really enjoy the fifth wheel. Easier to pull (no issues when a semi passes), lots of storage, and many more reasons.

RE: Did I ruin my water heater, please help!

Also make sure the Television antenna booster is off. It is normally near one of the tv's and it is a small button. Mine has a very small green light when on.

RE: Tire pressure gauges

This thread got me thinking. Please bear with me. This morning I was airing up a car tire that was low. I used the gauge on airhose/trigger type assembly. I filled it to the appropriate level (51 lbs). Then I decided to use another gauge and it read 44 lbs. Whoa...7 lbs difference. I found another gauge I have used a lot and when I used it, it was around 44 lbs. Then it made me think, I have been using the hose assembly with the trigger for awhile now so when I thought I had the right amount of air in the tires, I was actually low. Granted, the two could be bad and the one with the high reading could be the good one, but I am doubting that. I will continue to check with a few other gauges I have (try to keep them in vehicles) to see what they record.
