RE: Need advice on 50 ft cable to portable solar panel

Buy plain old 10ga stranded wire cut 2 50' pieces tape them together every 3 feet. Your only dealing with a 12 volt circuit. That's how we used to string temporary lights till they changed the NEC and required an outer jacket over the conductors.

RE: Ever hear of this camping company? Harvest Host

I think he'd be happier at a KOA

RE: What is too hot

I measure the parking lot temp as well as the tires. No point getting worried about tread/sidewall temps of 140-150 if the sun has the surface at 140+ degrees on those 90 degree afternoons.

RE: Touchy subject - proper toilet paper for black tank

Single ply Scotts works in my home septic and TT holding tank. Experiment put a couple of sheets in a glass of water overnight and check the next morning. See for yourself if you'll have issues with TP that doesn't break down.

RE: "Use Both Lanes Until Merge Point"

fj12ryder wrote: This really shouldn't even be an RV issue, but last time it happened to me, a AW used his fiver to block both lanes about a half mile before the merge. LAME. If you think about it he just moved the pinch point back "upstream". You're upset cause you had to sit in traffic longer.

RE: "Use Both Lanes Until Merge Point"

They should do away with the warning signs and let both lanes roll up together than zipper into one when they come to the cones/horses. Then you have no fist waving because you moved over a mile back. That is exactly what happens with a stalled car in a lane.

RE: How fast do the gray and black tanks fill

Wife and I can go a week on the black tank, 5 days is the best so far on gray. We wash dishes outside in 2 tubs one to wash one to rinse and throw the water into the shrubs. ( I know the horror) Navy showers, never letting the water run while shaving or brushing teeth.

RE: Traction control systems and trailer sway bars

Excuse me for ruining your day up there on the pedestal of towing Gods. Jeez. Have to excuse him, he's got over 15,000 posts (average 5 a day) so he's "that guy" at the campground bar.

RE: Best resale value toy hauler or tt

Has nothing to do with resale value. Different type of RV. Different customer base. /\ /\ /\ this I wouldn't have one of them if it was free. Doesn't meet my needs. Question is which one am I speaking of?

RE: Rotating Trailer Tires

I wear mine out before they age out so I rotate and balance. The front axle of my camper has a bit less camber then the back (a replacement) so I rotate.

RE: Scary moment towing my 5er around Denver last week

When folks ask why you need a dash cam here's a good example. Otherwise without one, "you rear ended him", "you should have anticipated" ya da ya da.

RE: Leave propane on while driving?

With sadly 20,000+ killed on the highways every year, your 1000x more likely to die in a plain old crash, than going up in a spectacular ball of flame from your propane frig running while you drive/refill the gas tank.

RE: Leave propane on while driving?

Not a good idea, particularly when refueling. I wouldn't do it, but many do, and that's why I try to avoid refueling when there's another RV/motorhome at a nearby pump island. I'm never in that much of a hurry. https://rvlife.com/rv-propane-system-explode/ https://www.saanichnews.com/news/exploding-camper-van-torches-highway-4-gas-station-between-qualicum-beach-and-port-alberni/ https://www.api.org/oil-and-natural-gas/consumer-information/consumer-resources/staying-safe-pump https://heartlandowners.org/threads/rv-fire-at-a-gas-station.15213/ HMMMM building codes allow gas hot water heaters in garages provided they are at least 18" above the garage floor. I'm guessing they think there might be gas fumes or gasoline stored in the garage. Just an FYI before all the internet horror stories start. HMMMM, what do building codes about water heaters in garages (btw, they're water heaters, not "hot water heaters". If the water is already hot, it doesn't need to be heated) have to do with refueling at a gas/fuel stop, with active ignition sources in your vehicle(s)? Take your time, I'll wait. :C Read the post following yours to help you understand. Safe travels. Don't wait I passed you a long time ago.
