RE: Camco water filter

We also use the Pentek CFB-PLUS10 Replacement Filter Cartridge. The carbon block filters are supposed to be the best way to go. We mount ours under the edge of the camper to keep it out or the sun and also easy to reach.

RE: self driving sooner than we think!

Since this video is from Jun 6, 2016, I don't see this new technology exactly being right around the corner.

RE: Furrion back up camera

Are you sure that the actual camera is there? Not just the camera prep kit?

RE: Pick up truck remembrance !

My dad had a 1970 International pickup. 3 on the tree, of course no power steering or brakes, did have the optional right side external mirror, AM radio, no AC. You needed 2 football fields to make a u-turn, if you could get the steering wheel turned far enough.

RE: Traveling in a group— How do you handle it?

In my experience, it was fun to pull off at rest stops together, but once we were separated, there was no catching up. My friend stopped to check out a produce market and we never looked back. Plus at that point, as the person towing, I did not want to dilly dally waiting for her. Yup, that cat and mouse game gets old fast. Best to meet up at the destination.

RE: Traveling in a group— How do you handle it?

Meet up at your destination. Use the cell phones if needed, provided you have coverage.

RE: Passport America

We've had PA for a few years. Still use it, mostly during travel. You just need to be aware of the "rules". The rules are posted for each campground and easy to find.

RE: good Sam VS AARP.

there’s no chance we’d give one red cent for anything to AARP. reasons are totally political which i will not detail. suffice it to say IMO they do not have the well being of the typical senior in mind. we belong to Good Sam (although we don’t do many 1-night stays these days) as well as KOA and AAA. on the very rare occasion we stay in a hotel the AAA card provides a discount. the typical CG/RV Park will provide a better discount for weekly and monthly stays.

RE: New truck batteries

Duracell are made by EastPenn Mfg. Same as a Dekka. Great batteries for the money. Check Baterries Plus if you have one. Order online and pick up in store and save 10%. Sometimes makes them cheaper than Walmart or Sam's Club. I would have never thought to get batteries for our '14 Ram from Baterries Plus, but called them on a whim and ended up with the best deal and they installed them for free.

RE: Solar Panel, Unmarked Pigtails, which is Positive, Negative?

By looking at the direction of those diodes the pigtail with the red ring is positive. Yes, red ring is positive, because of connection to the diodes.

RE: Ceramic Heater Safety

We have had excellent luck using a Vornado electric heater in our 30 ft trailer even when the temps get into the hi 30s. It is very quiet and the fan distributes the heat very well. It also does not get hot to the touch, even on the front. Barney We've been using a Vornado heater for years. The heat and fan automatically adjust themselves to maintain the preset temperature. Keeps a constant temperature and is very quiet.

RE: Macerator pumps

A 12V motor can have just as much power as a 120V motor, so the voltage of the motor shouldn't matter. If I were going to buy one, I'd go with one with a 12V motor for the convenience of having 12V always available at the camper.

RE: Backup Camera

I installed a Furrion camera this spring. Wired it into the running lights so it is on anytime the lights are on. Our camper wasn't prewired but wiring was easy. It works great. A good thing about it is, because the camera has a microphone, you can hear what's going on behind the camper as your are backing up, my wife is still the spotter and I can hear her without her yelling.

RE: Anyone install an 30 amp receptacle outside for inverter?

No. I installed a transfer switch. Touch the remote button inside and power is there. No hassle, no fuss. I added a transfer switch also. Then ran the wire that powers the converter into the transfer switch, then added a relay inside the transfer switch to automatically turn off the converter when the inverter is powering the camper.

RE: How To Charge 5 Apple Products

I installed a couple of Blue Sea Systems 1045 usb charge ports. They get their power from 12Vdc, so they'll work whether on shore power or running off the battery.

RE: US-2 Road Condition in Montana

Last July we took US 2 from Wisconsin to Shelby, Montana. It was fine, EXCEPT a little east of Shelby was major construction for about 10 miles. Down to dirt. I imagine they've made a lot of progress since then, but I have no idea. Nor do I know if they started another section. JK We did the same last year, Wisconsin to Alaska. The construction on Hwy 2 is a bit inconvenient. Wait till you get near and into Alaska if you want to complain about roads and construction.

RE: Weber Q1200 Question

On our Q1200 we removed the regulator and put on the quick disconnect to work with the camper. Then we put a quick disconnect on the regulator, to be able to put the regulator back on the grill. That way we can still use the grill if we want to tailgate at a baseball or football game.
