RE: Solar panels and battery cut off

Battery must not be cut off from solar, its good bye controller if that is the way it is wired, check and be sure solar is wired to controller and direct to battery.

RE: Very Bad RV Wreck in Oregon

Very sad that they had stopped for the night at a Walmart and were made to leave because no parking allowed. That is why the driver was out there at night and sleepy. Had probably already been driving all day. Had no money for a tow, probably had no money for a campground "if" they could even find one. And this, friends, is the epitome of "living beyond one's means". Who operates an RV without the means to deal with the inevitable unexpected? Decisions have consequences. What a BS statement just maybe that's all the poor bastard had to his name and you figure everybody should have million's to back him up in hard times, not every body is rich like you by the sound of your statement, and we wonder why people are leaving the RV site, give your head a shake or call me on it.

RE: RV Crushes Truck

You have to reverse a bit to take the pressure off the jaws and only then you won't have to fight to unlock it, the hitch was never locked properly in the first place if you look at the white pin when he hooked up the second time and the extra nylon plate was not needed, Trucked for 50 yrs and pulled the odd fw pin in that time and it was the same, you have to take the pressure off to unhook.Lucky that was all the damage, could have lossed it on the street.

RE: RV Crushes Truck

I like my Reese 17k hitch, when those jaw's are around the pin it ain't coming loose and dropping and have done numerous pulls to check it. How many out there have a Reese.

RE: Solar panels

When you boon dock all winter in Arizona you need lots of solar if you want to live like you do at home, Just my thought's.

RE: Solar panels

8 T105's and 600 watts of Kyocera panel's, use batteries for everything in the coach and the same for the fw which 2 batteries and 120 watt of solar.Also carry a Honda 3000i for the air.

RE: Best Fuel Preservative for Pure Gas ???

Seafoam for me, and I always buy 91 octane ethanol free gas for my small engines. X2 for me, Shell 91 and 1 oz seafoam per gallon, no more small engine problem's.

RE: Blue Ox Tow Bar

Its pretty bad when they supply safty cable's to hold the hitch to the frame and 3 lousy bolts to hold the hitch on, just as bad when I put the hitch on my 03 jetta and just about lost it in Wisconson, same deal, bolts to small, had to rebild the whole hitch when we got home, using 3/8 angle and 1/2" bolts, no problem's for the next 8 yrs untill we sold the car. Car dolly after that.

RE: Bent Kingpin?

Just a quick FYI, you're looking a the spindle, not a kingpin which your trailer doesn't have. Best of luck. ScottIn 50 yrs of trucking pulling trailer's it was alway's known as a king pin, never ever heard it called a Spindle, you must be thinking of something totally different of what is being described. Just my thought's.

RE: Battery (really solar panel) Disconnect Question

Had a C40 controller destroyed when one of my 14 yr old batteries went south, so yes it is advisable to disconnect the panels fist, thats the way I was tought when I worked in the solar for 3 yrs. in Arizona and was working for 1 of the best @ Imperial Dam. and all I had was a 80 watt panel charging while the rig was in storage at the time. Just my thought's.

RE: Anti roll bars for fifth wheel with air ride.

If it was mine I would put check valves in the lines so the air can't tranfer, first I heard of anybody installing that system on a fw, How soft does everything need to be????

RE: British Columbia, Canada

The Coke is a fast rd. but very boring and a hard pull from either direction, myself if I travel to Vancouver I take the Fraser Canyon and it is a very good rd now than it was 50 yrs ago, going south from Kamloops I like 5A to go to Princton and on to the US but that is my because I can get see things and not have to drive 140k like most of them on the Coke. Going east from Clearwater I will take the rd. up through Jasper and east from there.East from Kamloops and you have some hard pulls to the Alberta border.

RE: Portable Solar Smoking

Should have hooked up controller first before opening suit case possible blown controller, controller need's battery power first. Foud that the hard way when a battery went out and fried a $3oo controller, no where for power to go from panel's. Possible reversed cable's????

RE: DPF Delete Recommendations for Dodge Cummins

RE: Ice cream?

Set my fridge on high Friday to get a quick cool down and forgot about it till Sunday past, everything in the fridge was frozen top to bottom, and that was in my fw, even a dish of peaches on the bottom shelf was frozen solid, must be a dam good fridge to do that, won't make that mistake again, back to a 3 setting and everything good today but lost a lot of produce.
