RE: Buying tires? Check the DOT codes...

Surprised anyone doesn't know how to decipher tire codes - or where to find them on a tire! Google it - or check YouTube! Lastly - buyer beware (that means - be sure to check!!) ~ Its true...once I learned how to decode them I insist on checking them on new rubber. Sad that many places sell old stock.

RE: Buying tires? Check the DOT codes...

When I buy tires my limit on "age" is no more then 12 months from the date im buying them. Our rv and cargo trailer ST tires have a practical lifespan of 5 maybe 6 years so they will be useless to me beyond that. Learned early on that tread is not a safe indication of remaining life.

RE: Best battery maintainer.

I would also disconnect, top off with distilled water and charge as needed once/twice in a winter. If you insist on having battery left on a "maintainer" then I can also vouch that Deltran's battery tenders are a great product

RE: lino cracked after cold spell

Also had it happen in our last 5er on main level. First time it was covered under warranty...then the bathroom cracked weeks before I sold it so I discounted it to the buyer. Sadly there was a period where the flooring was of poor quality and susceptible to thermal shock and tearing. Fully gluing it down would help but of course costs mfg more. Hopefully you find a suitable replacement and take care of the repair. Imagine how many new units sat on the lot and had their floors do this?

RE: Where are you guys/gals getting your battery cables?

Any auto supply store will have "starter" cables. Just pick the ends you want, and of course the gauge. Also many shops that sell rv batteries will also make interconnects that can be sized for such a task.

RE: fresh water tank overflow syphoning tank dry

I find this thread interesting. Our fifth wheel also has a pressure fill and valves to determine city water/system use/winterize etc. Last year I started noticing that when I fill the tank to capacity it would drain WAY longer than it used to when tap shut off at house. I would get to campsite and notice my "idiot light" was showing 2/3 tank. Not trusting it I ignored it. Now I show up at a campsite and find I can add 1 or 2 6 gallon jerry cans to what I believed was a full tank. In addition our family following us on road trips notes that we lose water on left turns and not just a little...looked like smoke coming off the tires. The last time I topped off the tank I noted water coming out overflow but when I got under the rig there is actually two red "overflow" tubes with one coming out hard/fast and the other trickling out. I wonder why there is two tubes? Is one an overflow and the other the breather tube? I would really like to understand them and may have to pull the coroplast to see whats changed as it used to just drain off a gallon or two as the tank was full and somewhat pressurized.

RE: solar update

Is yours the 100W NOMA solar kit from Canadian Tire?

RE: using wifi while camping

Perfect time for a Deltran battery tender. They come with quick connect ends that can be installed on the battery and then just plug in as needed. I bet even a 1.5A trickle charge would keep up...or bring up the battery after it gets used for a few hours.

RE: Inverter Use

Any time we have full sun and im headed down the road on longer trips I use my fridge on AC off the inverter. I have 400W of solar plus the small trickle charge from the truck so I save a small amount of LP.

RE: Convert Reese Slider to Fixed

If the cost of changing to a fixed base was reasonable I would also consider doing it on my Reese 16k. There is inherent movement in the slider mechanism, and now that I have a rounded cap there is no chance I will ever use the slider. I stopped lubing the mechanism years ago so I bet it wouldn't even slide without a massive jolt now.
