RE: Best place to buy Dometic Brisk Air 2 top unit

Try PPL: PPL Motor Homes I've bought parts and appliances from them for years and never had a problem. X2, Tweetys and Etrailer both have good reps too Have you checked Amazon?

RE: shower head

Oxygenics X5 So much more water pressure and so much less water used! we have used electrical tape wrapped around our propane hoses. Seems to help. X6 and they now come with a shutoff button

RE: Honda 2200i or Honda 2200i Companion?

If you want a red Honda, i would do the companion... At least you will have the ability to plug the camper directly into the 30amp port. It is NOT a TT30 port ! It is a twist lock 120V 30A NEMA L5-30. An adapter is still required. You beat me to it. Never understood why they went with the 30A twist lock and not the 30A TT like trailers use. You still need an adapter. Maybe someone can explain the logic because I never saw the need for the Companion.

RE: ongoing generator issue

5500 watts should start a 13.5k AC with ease and 6300 surge is waaaaay overkill. The info I have from Duotherm specs a 3500 watt generator for a 13.5. I would suspect another problem. Any inexpensive watt meter will not do you any good as they are not fast enough to measure LRA, locked rotar amps. Which is starting amps when the compressor first kicks on, lasts only a micro second. Is there another RV around you could hook up to and try and start their AC or can use their gen to try and run your AC, that might isolate the issue or hook up to shore power to test AC. My best guess is the start capacitor on the AC is going bad, my way of dealing with it, not having the proper tools to test is to replace the start capacitor. Does not take an electrical degree and should be $20 or less, if it is not the issue, you have a spare capacitor. Google or you tube replace RV AC start capacitor. Disclaimer, I am not an electronics guy, just another RV'er trying to get by. Fwiw my daughter's 3400 watt Champion genny runs her 13.5 AC with ease

RE: Storing with blank tanks 1/4 full???

Thank you everyone for the helpful suggestions. To answer a few questions in the thread... The campground we were at didn't have a dup station. They drive around a mini backhoe with a waste tank trailered to pump out waste they only pump on weekdays and we left on a Sunday.... hence 2.5 days with of poop accumulated. My son literally lit it up as soon as the dump truck pulled away. As for a sewer hookup in my yard... unfortunately it's not an option in my town. I like the idea of dumping in my home toilet. I'm going to look into that option. Thanks to everyone for the help and suggestions. Sewer Solution allows you to dump into any sewer clean out using a 3/4" hose. Research it on YouTube for more information. Not a fast way to dump but works great at home when You're in no hurry

RE: White hose

Ron3rd: Your link is the same hose now available at Walmart Could be. Just don't buy the cheap white hose they sell. Total junk.

RE: White hose

I've had very good luck with the Camco blue water hoses. Forget the cheap hose from Walmart; I've thrown away a couple of those. They kink so bad they're virtually unusable. I bought the Camco 20 ft. hose that breaks down into two 10 ft sections which I found to be handy if you don't have to go very far with the hose. They don't kink and they're very heavy duty. Would definitely buy this one again. I could not find that 20 ft. one anymore on Amazon but it looks identical to the 50 ft hose posted in this link and they offer it in a 25 ft too: CAMCO RV FRESH WATER HOSE

RE: Replacing Norcold Fridge: get 2 way or 3 way?

I've never seen the need for 3 way (12v) and have never missed it. We run on propane when on the road. Never a problem.

Recommendations for Moab campground

Hi Folks, were going to be in Moab around October 1st and need recommendations on a good campground as this is our first trip to Moab. The rigs are a 36 ft TT and 34 ft fiver. Full hookups only. TIA. Any good site/attractions would be nice too although we hear most is closed right now.

RE: Storing with blank tanks 1/4 full???

Won't hurt anything but I would add more water. Or buy yourself a Sewer Solution and dump at home anytime you want. That's what I do

RE: School me on waste totes

I've got an old 32 gal. Barker. Comes in real handy from time to time. Don't use it a lot but when you need it it's great. I don't see the need to pump anything. I just tow it to the dump station as designed. We only use it for gray water. Never filled up our black tank. the two major brands are Thetford and Barker.

Smart move.

RE: Propane fire pit

Love these things, especially if they eliminate another stinky wood fire. The fire is nice, the smoke, not so much. Not only that, campground after campground is banning any word burning and will allow only propane fire pits.

RE: New Truck 4x4 or 4x2 ??

Guessing about 80% of the Ram CTDS in my area are 4x4. I've never needed or wanted 4x4 in my geographical area. That actually made my truck harder to find because most on the lots are 4x4. If you think you need it then by all means go for.

RE: Stereo replacement

X2. Going with an automotive head unit gives a lot of options at a better price. That is if you're handy and open to some modifications. Even if you're not a good automotive stereo shop could easily set you up.

RE: New and looking for a generator

Thanks for all the above everyone. I purchased the Champion 3100 watt with remote start. It'll arrive Thursday, just in time for the trailer's maiden boondocking voyage next weekend. Good choice.

RE: Owning a Cummins Diesel?

2016 CTD here with about 52K miles. It's been a reliable truck so far. Mine is a 2500 2wd. Did not want or need 4x4.

RE: Got a new TV

Nice choice! I love those new GMs.

RE: Water in Fuel? When Do You Drain the Filter?

Fantastic, thanks for the info! So if I change the filters every year (or 12k miles) they shouldn't need draining in between? No
