RE: To buy a generator or not...

Yes Admis that is the one I purchased. I no longer have the TT but others have said small inverter generators like this one will run their single roof top AC so check with them. This little genny will power many items without loud surging noise. I power a powerful 20" floor fan on high with no surging and bright camping light, coffee maker, etc. It weighs between 30 to 40 lbs or maybe a bit more but not over 50.

RE: To buy a generator or not...

I am now using with good results a Firman Inverter 2000i generator I bought on sale at Costco for $350.00 early this year. It has the econo quiet mode, RV receptable plus 120 V AC plus and a USB for charging laptop and phone and parallel cable kit. Before that I had a Champion 3500 with same bells and whistles. Very handy critters to have on camping and fishing trips.

RE: tire covers, yea or nay

Yes I used them for many years in Texas and frequently applied 303 liquid spray protectant to the new Maxxis TT tires plus truck tires and never any cracks appeared. Then 303 was bought at West Marine but now you can find it at O'Reilly's also.

RE: Question on my Travel-Lite

The harsh Texas sun ruined some of my decals so you must constantly apply a good quality protectant such as 303 liquid spray from West Marine and now can find at O'Reilly auto store.

RE: Question on my Travel-Lite

I cannot remember my floor being soft but it was not overly hard either. The steps were a little weak until I bought from RV store some step supports to go underneath when I felt like using them. Rear bumper was strong for both spare tire and bike rack. Did not care for the flimsy screen door but I lived with it. All the appliances worked perfectly including microwave and ac. There was a recall on the Dometic fridge due to propane leaks and fire hazard that required install of a part but I only used the fridge on electric and never propane. You need to see if your fridge was recalled for repair or not by entering the part number in the U.S. Government recall database online. I never took my in to a dealer because of their common delays etc. Although they appeared in good shape I replaced tires with good quality Maxxis tires for long x-country trip and used a trailer shop to repack wheel bearings with synthetic grease once a year and they inspected and adjusted the brakes also

RE: Question on my Travel-Lite

In 2003 I purchased a used late model 2003 R-Vision Trail Cruiser bunkhouse model and for many many years I had excellent service from that trailer with no major issues or leaks anywhere except for minor road debris damage and slight wear and tear issues. Once a year or more often I replaced old outside caulking with new in those areas needed and just for fun I applied a new coat of rubber roofing in full or certain areas including flanges and fastener points. Did not need it but I did it anyway. Never any leaks period. That year model was well constructed for a lite TT. If you have no reason to I would not engage in any modifications or dismantling just for inspection. Enjoy

RE: Electric only TT

I have successfully RV camped without using propane for several years using only electric hookups or small inverter generator. I do most hot meals and heating of things using microwave. Occasionally I use outside a one burner propane stove for cooking or heating soup, etc. Again use the microwave for heating water for washing and cleaning and occasionally check into motel for thorough hot showers and good scrubbing. In hot weather use the outside RV shower hose wearing swim trunks or use the indoor shower. Use a small electric fan heater in winter time inside Rv. Have a small but powerful electric floor fan for outside the RV in hot weather. In addition to electric fridge I use ice chest sometimes. To each their own. Always a way and all is good If I want home cooked meals I go to restaurant or stay in the city. Camping and fishing is what is important to me and not full timing.

RE: 2013 Ecoboost overheating

Do you have an auxillary transmission cooler and extra fan??? I have used in 3 different Ram 1500 and 2500 trucks the green bottle of Rislone Hyper Cool water wetter coolant with dramatic cooling results in extreme hot weather running the AC in city stop and go traffic. Better than the Red Line water wetter I used to use. Sometimes in older vehicles the lower radiator hose will collapse or partially collapse under high heat load stress but yours probably has the spring inside the hose. My last issue of truck overheating was due to air bubble inside the radiator but a radiator flush solved that problem. Check your radiator cap pressure and they can do a thermostat check for intermittent operation.

Maintenance Approved For RV

A member ask on another forum where do you do maintenance on your RV??? From my own experience I have used RV storage lots to apply new roof coating and protectant on awnings, caulking, and use of spray paint cans for minor touchup's of trailer tongue to include installation of WDH and repair, as well as complete washing of the exterior, etc. The surface of the lots I used were asphalt or concrete and cleaned up any mess created and did the work early Sunday mornings and on holidays when the office was closed and never any complaints. I have seen other people washing their RVs in public campgrounds. If necessary I would just rent an outside storage space for one month to do this

RE: EV's I know there are folks better versed than me in here

I assume there will be a dramatic increase in the electric grid capacity to handle all this new stuff. Some Hydroelectric generating dams in the west may soon be out of water. Just musing

RE: New group of Newbies

With inflation now underway I would not bet on lower prices on anything for the near future new or recent used from the dealers as their fixed cost are also rising and they are well aware many consumers receive wage increases plus Cola increases due to inflation for retired, SS, etc. If there is a drop off in sales volume then they may/will increase prices on units sold to other buyers to try and make up the difference.

RE: Which tire do I buy?

I too have had excellent service with Goodyear Wrangler LT Load E tires on my Dodge Ram 2500 V10 and Ram 1500 trucks. Was not impressed with Michelin a long time ago.

RE: Where to find toads for sale

you might try craigslist, FB marketplace, auto trader if you know a make and model, IRV2 forum/market place, etc. A careful detailed Google and Bing search may yield results. Escapees forum is limited compared to this forum and IRV2. Good luck

RE: AGM battery question for the experts.

I just had a similar problem with a 12 volt AGM truck battery. Although fully charged it would not start the truck however my very small lithium Ion battery power brick/bank would strongly start the truck. After much failed troubleshooting I took it to auto repair shop and they replaced the battery end cables connecting to the battery post and this solved the problem. There was nothing wrong with the starter, alternator or 2 year old battery. I have a marine start 12 volt battery in my second nearly identical Dodge Ram 1500 that has performed perfectly now for 3 years and is $80.00 less than a standard 12 volt wet cell bat. Check those battery cables connection terminals as mine were rotten. Voltmeter and multimeter and other checks on the cable ends falsely showed proper start voltage flowing from the battery to the starter. Your mileage may vary. This info may be of help to others with battery start problems. Good luck

RE: Fuel for Gassers

you will receive opposing answers on this as I recall from other threads on this and other RV forums. It is a frequent question.

RE: Storage

For many years I used outside storage lots in Texas and Nevada including gravel, asphalt and concrete pads for my TT with no rodent or critter problems except for occasional wasp nest on the roof air conditioner and underneath the TT giving me a scary nasty surprise so I learned to check often with wasp spray and had mean fun with the devils.

RE: another scale thread

Cat Scales are your friend and helps keep one honest. I have used them from Texas to NM to Oregon on 3 trucks and a TT. Keep the results in my glove box.

RE: Looking for info on Insurance

If you are former military then USAA of San Antonio provides insurance service for autos, trucks and RVs at very competitive prices. I have been insured with them since 1970 for trucks and travel trailer with no problems and their telephone help line is great with good english speaking reps you can understand. Always been fast polite service.

RE: RV Hot Skin (Exterior electrification)

I do not remember using a power cord extension with RV cord but may have. This hazard is always with us. I will not plug into an RV receptacle when standing on wet ground or during rain/moisture around the poll post and I check the outlet receptacle for proper grounding and safe working conditions with an outlet check meter. Same goes for my inverter Generator. Sometimes water from neighboring RV site will seep or flow across the power cord and or post. Some campground power post look in very shabby condition. Hope your wife recovers quickly very soon.
