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 >>

RE: Induction cooktop amps?

Have no idea what a built in stove with induction burners would draw. Our New Wave single size is rated at 1300 Watts.

RE: Switch to houseboat?

We were boaters back in the 90’s. With our 30’ cruiser, we travelled to the Bahamas in 1993 for 10 days Green Turtle Cay and Marsh Harbor. $45 a night at Green Turtle and $52 a night at Marsh Harbor. Fuel cost from NE Florida, $1800+. Until, 1997, every weekend on the St Johns and Nassau/St Mary’s River. No camp fees while River camping but fuel about $200 a weekend plus $150 a month docking fee. Camping is, by far a lot cheaper than boating.

RE: Tote question

We stay almost always in state parks most with no sewer. Our trailer has 3 tanks, 2, 42 gallon grey water and one 42 black. We often stay 2 weeks and have never filled up the black tank. I do use the tote for the shower grey tank sometimes but never the galley tank.

RE: Close call (fire) with water heater

Sooting from the chimney vent area is usually a sign a spider or other insect has taken up residence in the burn tube cutting the air supply needed to burn clean.

Coming from I-26, we take 17 south to Folly Rd right to Camp Road, then turn right to park entrance more roadway, less traffic.

RE: Lithium Ion Submarine Batteries

Even in my day, the U S Navy had only a hand full of non nuclear subs and today no non nuclear boats in the service fleet. Several third world countries operate diesel/electric boats to this day. I Would bet Russia and China are front runners in the success of this project. I believe this type of battery will be a good fit for scientific/disaster and rescue boats owned by private consortiums throughout the world.

RE: 2020 Silverado HD Media Launch

Dang ugly front end. Mom needs a new SUV next year, I sure hope the new Tahoe’s are not a copy in 2021.

RE: Furrion Observation Camera Wiring

I believe most all Forest River trailer prewiered require the TV light on power the camera. Our 18 Cardinal is that way.

RE: Cable TV surge protection

TV’s Are cheap, I’d worry more about trailer electronics getting fried. A/c and fridge circuit boards and converter etc. invest in a good surge protector and hope for the best.

RE: Maxxair Vent Covers

Depending on your Newmar, the maxair covers can be installed using 4 clip pins that allow you to release and open the cover to clean.

RE: whether you like him or not Marcus is standing for the flag

I know this could be a hot topic, BUT it needs to be seen... Love him, or hate him, he is standing up for his decision to WAVE the American Flag . . News - ** This post was edited to keep all the spell checkers happy ! ! so much for auto spell check on the phone.. You should check your facts. The city of Statesville upgraded their ordinance allowing Mr CW to fly a flag up to 1000 square feet and issued a permit to erect such a flag. Instead, Mr CW erected a flag over 2000 square feet and is being sued for it. They did not keep him from displaying our Colors but restricted the size for safety and compliance.

RE: Oxygenics Shower Head

Is the Oxygenics still the best replacement to get good pressure for navy showers? We bought one about 2months ago for our new Cardinal. Big mistake for me, it spit the water instead of providing a shower spray. Took it off and will find a friend that likes to have their shower spit on them.

If you are trying to set the LCI zero point or level, follow these instructions. No need to raise jacks much at all.LCI zero point.

RE: Maybe a new Ford?

I’ve owned FX4 Ford Trucks for years, many diesel. 2003,2006, 2007, 2016, 2018. All but one had lariat package and performed fine with no engine problems. Now have a 2018 Lariat DRW has 7,50 miles, all but 250 miles towing, and it is the most comfortable truck out of them all. No wondering in the steering and the seats are great. Not taking away from Ram because their interior is nice.
