RE: Moles

Moles? The only way I have ever seen to get rid of them, and keep them gone involves getting rid of grubs. Nothing to eat? Gone. X2. Treat the area with Scotts Grub-Ex.

RE: Best Instant Tent Feedback Needed

Hi @Renee, We are using CORE 4 Person Instant Dome Tent. You may try Ozark Trail 8 Person Instant Cabin Tent. Thank you! CORE is one we have on our short list. We have a Core and love it!

RE: Are all new RVs built this bad or is it just mine?

Really? The same junk could be made in Cali, but nobody could afford or would want to buy it because it would cost twice as much.

RE: Are all new RVs built this bad or is it just mine?

Is this your first RV? The only way for the RV lifestyle to be sustainable is for you to learn to deal with these kinds if issues yourself. You gotta be able to fix stiff. X2

RE: rockies or smokey's

Some of you will get a chuckle out of this, but I NEVER use my truck's cruise control when towing.....NEVER. X2

RE: where 2 get water for RV before you reach your destination?

It one thing if you are on the road and need water. Sure you get it from wherever you can. However if your leaving from home, you are better filling your tanks from a known source and bringing it with you. The weight of the water is negligible and will have no measurable impact on your MPG's I think for a lot of people it's the fear of "tank drop".

RE: Tires

Definitely upgrade the load rating tires and always inflate to max PSI. That rating allows for heat. Under and over inflation leads to tire failure. BAD advice! Please explain. I have run max psi on three different trailers, all of them with "china bombs" and have not had one blowout or even a flat. Lucky I guess?

RE: Honda Eu3000 Problem

Heavy dose of seafoam might help.

RE: Portable generators with auto start capability.

Thanks so much for recommending it. However, I decided to buy a Honda EU2200i after a few days of thinking. Here's is the link to the website that I order it https://www.rvweb.net/best-rv-generators-reviewed/. Because my RV is a little small so Honda is more suitable for me and it is also not too noisy. Good choice!

RE: Adding a vent to roof

I just did this to a 2016 Coachmen Apex 239RBS. I had the same issue of not enough ventilation in the front (bed area) of the camper. I do have a fan (small, one speed) at the rear of the camper in the bathroom and thought about just replacing that with the Fantastik fan, but I just knew it would not work as well as having the fan up front. My roof is nothing more than a sandwich of rubber over 1/4" luan plywood, 4" to 5" of styrofoam and the ceiling which is 1/4" luan. I used a magnet to locate supports (mine are steel) and they are 4' on center. I have ceiling lights that run in the center and length of the camper that I was able to get power from. The wiring actually lays on the ceiling in a hollowed out "raceway" in the styrofoam. They sell a vent install kit which will have butyl tape to use under the vent lip, mounting screws and dicor caulk to seal the top. So far so good. No leaks and nice air movement up front.

RE: Android question

Didn't want to disturb the Android vs. Apple topic so thought I's start my own - I've got a Samsung Galaxy S5 with 16 GB of memory, and an additional 16 GB microSD card installed. Is there any way I can move some of my installed apps from the internal memory to the SD card? The internal memory is close to full, but the SD card is almost empty, and I can increase the size of the SD card at will if I start to fill it up. Open up the list of apps, open each app and it will show it being installed on internal memory. If it can be moved to the sd card it will show the option of moving it. I have found that most apps will only work on internal memory and cannot be moved to the sd card.

RE: 25ft Toy Hauler Suggestions

Anyone aware of any that length with slide outs? Grand Design has one with a bedroom slide, it's 26'11" hitch to bumper. Looked this one over real good and really liked it, but dealer started talking out of both sides of his mouth and killed the deal. Edit for length

RE: Chevy C-5500 Kodiak Duramax potential safety issue!

Had this happen to a work truck, it would occasionally sound the alarms and die when taking a curve fast. Topping off the surge tank seemed to help until one day I could hardly drive the truck even with a full surge tank. I ended up replacing the sensor at the bottom of the surge tank, problem solved. You'll have to get the sensor from a dealer, the only place I could find it.

RE: Black Tank--Borax?

I’m always amused that some of us go to great length to clean/super clean the black tanks just so we can poop in a clean tank, and do it all over again. X2

RE: Micro Air Soft Start for AC

Even with microaire voltage drops to 97 volts, when starting the Dometic 13500 air conditioner with a Yamaha 3000 Sieb. If I add the load support feature on the Magnum to the mix, voltage still makes a huge excursion down and the red over load light triggers on the Magnum remote. Further, I had to "tweak" the cut in voltage on the autoformer to cut in at 113 volts, when on shore power after the microaire was installed. If I were to do it again, I'd save my pennies. (i.e. I "fixed" something that was not broken.) ? I had no problem running my 13500 with a 3200 subaru with no easy start or even a start capacitor. I bought a honda 2200 for portability, would only start with eco off if the conditions were right. Installed the microair and can start the ac with eco on no problems.
