RE: EVER HOT TERMINAL?

Thanks to the link posted I found the correct fuse and it was installed and good. I will put a volt meter on the TV plug in the morning and see what I have. May be a trailer problem. Many thanks to ya all

2018 EXPLORER MPG WHILE TOWING

2018 Ford Explorer 3.5L 6 speed transmission. Not twin turbo model. Our non towing highway mileage is 20. Towing our 3,5oo pound hybrid mileage drops to 11. Our previous tow vehicle, a Kia Sedona, got 14 and had a bigger motor and five speed tranny. Is this all I can expect for mileage? Does'nt help that it has only a 18.5 gallon fuel capacity

EVER HOT TERMINAL?

First long trip with our new to us 2018 Ford Explorer with factory tow package. I easily installed my Prodigy brake controller. On our first long trip we noticed trailer batteries are not charging while we drive. There is no power on the ever hot terminal on the Explorer. Is there a fuse that needs to be installed? Any clue where it is located and size? Car did not come with a owners book. Thanks much

RE: What do you do with cat at Campgrounds

Last year two stray cats camped with us eating hot dogs. Obviously skinney and left behind by their owners. I saw one sleeping in the warm coles in the morning. Very sad. We tried to take them home but they wanted nothing to do with it.

RE: Axle Service

I did my own last year. 4 new bacing plates which include megnets, shoes, springs etc. $400. Easy to install. Drums were good. Just repack bearings. You should be able to buy complete axle asemblies for that price.

RE: Tire Replacement Question

When we purchased new tires at Les Schwab they simply did it in the parking lot with a jack. Really easy and fast

RE: surge protector and water filters

Congratulatiions on the new rig. May I just say that after nearly 40 years of RVing, including full timing, I have never used or needed a water filter, surge protector, special TP or TP chemicals. A water pressure regulator for sure and a black tank internal flusher. But none of that other stuff.

RE: replacing table

Has the table always been a challenge? I am just wondering if the swing arms got bent or just need lubed? We have the same style.

RE: Recreation.gov Cancellation Refund problem

They cancelled several reservations last year due to COVID. I got a prompt refund for all. Sorry. What exactly are they telling you?

RE: RV Dealers

NO it is not normal. There is a tremendous mark up within the RV industry and these should be thrown in to the deal. Are wheels also not included? Seriously, what a jack wagon

RE: Were back in a travel trailer, just bought an Airstream.

Congratulations on your Airstream. They are, in my opinion, by far the highest quality RV on the road. Wish I could afford one. Happy Trails

RE: installing a cutoff switch

You have a power draw somewhere and need to find it. Could be a dangerous situation.

RE: Replace TV

I have a swing out mounted 19 LCD TV. Your mounting point needs to be really solid. I bungee my TV when traveling. Also bigger TV means more power consumption if you boondock and more weight on the mount.

RE: Parking in Sloped Driveway

Could you use a power winch to bring it up and down the driveway? Like you would see on an off road rig.

RE: Vintage Campers And Trailers

Thanks. I love old school RV's back when they took pride in their craft.

FLEXIBLE FRESH WATER HOSE

I am tired of fighting with my Camco white water hose. This time of year it is like wrestling a Bowa Constrictor to get it put away. Why do I do this? Anyone know of an easy coiling fresh water hose that won't break the bank. I saw one on a compact reel. Any thoughts?

RE: DYI Electric brakes

Repack all bearings. Check brake magnets. There are wear indicators on contact surfaces. Check brake shoes for wear. Adjust brakes as needed. I learned how to do all this from Youtube.

RE: Quality Decline since Covid

An old timer told me regarding the RV industry "quality is only where you can see it, maybe". I almost pulled the trigger on a new trailer but lack of a conventional oven and overall build quality were disapointing so staywd with what we have. I know our current rig all too well.
