RE: Electric Propulsion Reality Check

I apologize. I checked and our provider has one natural gas and one biomass generating station. Though that is a small percentage of the overall generating capability they still pollute and hopefully soon they'll get rid of them. You still didn't say where the majority of your power comes from. In PA, I can choose a supplier, some of them "green", but that is just a shell game because the same amount of electricity will be generated from the same facilities.

RE: Electric Propulsion Reality Check

I'll buy an EV when the range is improved (we live in the country). I hate the pollution I'm producing with my gas car and diesel truck (soon to disappear). Where I live, the electricity to charge the EV does NOT come from burning fossil fuels. Please tell us where your electricity comes from. I am on the northeast power grid and understand that there is every type of generation supplying it, none of which is completely without negative impact.

RE: Tariffs trip up the all-American RV industry

Is this what ya do when you get old? Sit around and argue about economics, politics and the weather (and axle ratings, lol)? As folks mature, they tend to pull their heads out of a dark place and communicate with the world and not just snipe at every opportunity.

RE: Wheel bearings

DON'T buy the Chinese bearings from eTrailer, I was sent pure junk. If the current old bearings are in good condition, they have a good chance of being better than the imported **** currently available. Most bearings at local auto parts stores are also suspect. Timken bearings might be imported in some sizes, mine are USA, but at least it is a reputable company.

Go ahead and watch the video and then decide if you would want to put up with such a toy.

RE: Water Spigot / Thread Issues On Sites

Some state parks have hydrants scattered throughout the campground and are for use by everyone to fill their jugs. A few people think that because a hydrant is near their campsite it is for their personal use.

RE: Narrowed it down to 2

My Dometic refer in a slide has worked perfectly for years in 90+ heat. No fans. The current installation manual says this: Upper and lower side vent application • Choose this type of installation when a roof vent installation is not possible. • A baffle should be added. • The refrigerator must be equipped with fan(s).

RE: Disappointed in Disc Brakes

I see nothing in your owners manual about a electric over hydraulic setting. Later models have several settings, but not yours unless it has been modified.

RE: Possible power or AC issues?

Autoformer boost VOLTAGE not AMPERAGE 30A Power Source A/C Unit...roughly 10-12A Water heater element....11A Converter in full charge mode...8A Yep....there goes the 30A But for example, a 30 amp load in the RV at the boosted 110 volts will require 33 amps at the pedestal if the voltage is 100. The OP needs to measure voltage as he tries to find the problem.

RE: Narrowed it down to 2

Rv refrigerators are not the most efficient things out there, but do work well when installed correctly. When in a slide they have no vent stack. With proper installation and correct spacing to create the draft you need to your upper vent and thermal activated exterior fans they can work well. But with the workmanship in an rv it's a crapshoot. It's not the refrigerator, it's the installation. In addition, you need to provide electrical power to the fan(s). If you boondock, that is just one more draw on the battery.

RE: Disappointed in Disc Brakes

Gdetrailer gave you information on using magnets in the first reply, then you were given a link to an adapter that, I believe, is simply a resistor and will work just like using magnets for a resistor. Whatever you do, do not downgrade to a Prodigy, you want brakes somehow connected to your foot, not a guesswork accelerometer.

RE: Narrowed it down to 2

Just by looking at the floor plan of the 2 models, I'd pick the Grand Design. With the slides in, you cannot access the bathroom on the Forest River. Bathroom is accessible with the slide in on the Grand Design. Lack of access to the bathroom when traveling is a 100% deal breaker for us. Something to think about..... They both have two doors and about the same bath access, unless I saw the wrong floor plans. I, too want access to the bath and fridge with the slide in and I want to be able to walk all the way thru as well without going outside to the other door.

RE: Wildcat 282rkx fifth wheel parts

Go to the manufacturers website of each component and download what information is available.

RE: 2018 GMC Sierra Towing

So you have a truck with a modified suspension and a poor choice in tires, then you take it to a dealer without a clue, and now it doesn't act right? Might be better to start at square one and make better decisions on these three variables.

RE: New Tow Vehicle

The 3.55 is only available with 20" wheels or select packages. Otherwise the standard is 3.31 and there are no other gear options. Both will pull exactly the same because the tire size offsets any difference. The exception is packages like snow plow preparation that has 18" wheels which gives about a 7% increase in gearing.

RE: Power Cable Extension options ??

I think you bought the wrong cable, you need one like this: cord

RE: Converter noise

I had a fan get noisy and replaced it with a ball bearing fan that cost a few cents more. Found it on Jameco.

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

Sheeple with ‘magnetic bumper syndrome’, even on a multi lane highway they slide right up the back of the car ahead and just sit there, far too close for highway speed. They won’t pass even with nothing in the left lane. Just drive along mesmerized by the back of the next car. You got that right. Makes driving so much easier, just take short glances away from the phone and let others determine speed and direction. About as close as you can get to self driving vehicles.

RE: Weight Distributing Hitch BENT

Some hitches require the weight distribution bars to be removed while backing up at severe angles. It is usually suggested that friction sway bars be removed, never heard of that for the weight distribution bars. The people who sell them say it’s a good idea. E-Trailer Should Spring Bars Be Removed when Backing Up with a Weight Distribution System Question: Is there any issues with backing-up and making sharp cuts with weight distribution sway control RP66084 installed asked by: Don D Expert Reply: With any weight distribution system you will want to remove the spring bars every time you encounter any tight maneuvering situation. So if you were reversing your trailer and the trailer did not swing too far to one side or the other you should be fine, but I still would recommend you disconnect the bars under most normal reversing circumstances just to be safe. expert reply by: Jameson C Jameson C ASK THE EXPERTS A QUESTION >> The RP66084 is a dual cam type WDH, not a friction sway control. There is nothing in the manufacturers instructions about removing spring bars prior to backing up.

RE: Cracked Water Filter - Freeze?

I have had two of the blue inline filters crack some years ago, but none since. The cracks were not caused by freezing, just poor manufacturing. I toss the filters at the end of the season.
