RE: TV remotes

Get the neighbors 4 year old, amazing what they know about electronics.

RE: 1977 Sunline Truck Camper FULL BUILD

First time I've looked at the progress, you're doing an exemplary job that many can learn from.

RE: Daylight savings time !

what is daylight savings ???? It's when you cut the top hour off a day and sew it onto the bottom. That's got to be the best answer yet. There's a number of places that don't do the bi annual switch, there have been studies done it, causes more traffic accidents and other weird health problems.

RE: Fresh Water Tank Overflowing When Turning

Seems the obvious place for small items so you don't have to go hunting for them. Then again great minds think alike. Do you keep your 30 amp to 15 amp adapter for shore power inside the outside refer access panel. My shore power cable pulls out below and just aft of the fridge. Most of the time I just leave it on the 30A plug ready to hook up the generator. Our campground is bookdock style, no power, no water, blue Johnny Rocket poopers.

RE: Fresh Water Tank Overflowing When Turning

I keep the plug and cork in the silverware drawer in the trailer so I don't lose them. Hahahaha, did you see me putting my plug in the cutlery drawer.

RE: Weight Distribution Install Question! Help!

Is that a tent trailer? Why would you need a WDH unless you're towing it with an a low capacity vehicle.

RE: Best RV repair company, roof replacement Oregon

Well I can only guess that you had a pressing #2 to do that kind of damage without wondering what that racket was behind you.

RE: Fresh Water Tank Overflowing When Turning

The 1-1/4 in line would be the gravity fill on most of the older trailers. Do you have a gravity fill? If so my guess is that the tube has become disconnected. I really doubt the line is disconnected otherwise the flood would be inside the trailer. More likely is that the fresh water holding tank is under the bed or similar place where the outside location of the fill point would prevent installing the fill point without having the hose visible through the wall inside. My fill point is about 2 inches above the tank, just under the sheet of plywood on the bed.

RE: Fresh Water Tank Overflowing When Turning

It's one of those thing called centrifugal force. A full coffee cup with no lid will spill if you apply the brakes. Same thing. Go get a tapered wine bottle cork, put a stainless screw in it with a short piece of string and insert it into the fill port. Problem solved, mine does the same thing.

RE: Portable Satellite Cable Storage..ideas??

If you go into most any store that sells coax you will find that they are bundled in about the size you are wanting to use. No problem! Sure that's right but I would believe once the cable is sold to someone for installation it's installed permanently and not rolled up after every weekend. Kinks and bends should be avoided, that's what learned from an electronics acquaintance.

RE: Breakaway cable replacement

Don't overthink it. Just route it so it doesn't get caught in WD bars or safety chains.

RE: Suburban Furnace has 2 Amp Phantom Load when off

“My generator is not working so I was dry camping.” Generators are not considered a “hookup.” Consider solar. And what does your solar have to do with his furnace situation, absolutely nothing.

RE: Pigtail not fitting....

We just purchased a new tow vehicle (same make/model as our former TV, just younger) and the trailer's pigtail won't seat firmly into the socket on the truck. It's a 'blade' set of pins and the amount of pins and location of them are all matching and the pigtail goes in just fine but no amount of jiggling or pushing makes it go all the way in. We've tried a little WD-40 and that didn't make any difference. The plug cover (which is hinged to pull upon in a downward fashion) has a plug 'stop' that braces up against the pigtail in the right place but doesn't hold it securely at all. A few jiggles down the road and I'm sure this thing will disconnect. A search yields up that many people have the same issue and just use small bungee cords to secure the pigtail to the plug-cover where the 'stop' is. Not sure that this is the best answer. Do we need to replace the pigtail so that we get a secure/full seat on it when plugged into the new truck or is this as good as it's going to get? If it worked fine in your old truck, I would be suspecting the newer truck and its trailer plug connector. Make sure the blades are on the proper side of the socket in the bumper, might just be a very small amount of adjustment needed.

RE: Fresh Water Pump

Well think about your brilliant idea for a moment. You have park water coming in and the fresh water tank pump fighting with pressure already in the pipes, something has to give sooner or later. Why not fill the fresh water tank and use the pump alone.

RE: Advice on inverter size

I use a 300 Watt pure sine for the TV and Satellite receiver and it has never even kicked the fan on. For those that run the coffee pot and toaster from an inverter, it's going to take a lot longer to charge the battery than the 10 minutes the generator would be running to make coffee and toast.

RE: Junk Food Breakfast Cereals

Try Natures Path cereal, mostly organic with very little sugar added in the product.

RE: eu2200 with eu2000

As for pairing up non identical or brand units it can be done. My son a an EU2000i and added a B&S 2200 inverter and they work fine together. Funny thing is his Honda will power up his compressor while the B&S will not even though it has a higher rating.

RE: Unlikeliest of engine swaps!!

A dirty 2 stroke DD is not a mileage maker by any stretch of imagination, he would have been better off with a 4BT.

RE: Cell phone signal Booster ?

Sometimes it's also the provider coverage. North of the border we have 2 main carriers with a number of spin offs riding coat tails. I can use my we boost with my cell phone on my company provider, make calls and text while others with the other carriers get nothing even using my booster. If I take my chip and put it in my sons phone, it will get the signal but can't use it, doesn't recognize his number or plan.

RE: Bizarre water problems

That's all the free stuff the trailer builders give you. My plumbing had a pile of wood chips in it. You would think those idiot employees would have a little bit more conscience when building these units. Hate to see what's in the hot water tank.
