RE: Slow leak

I had one that turned out to be a cracked rim.

RE: Propane Firepit Restrictions - West Coast

Yes, I think a propane fire pit that emits no sparks sitting on an asphalt or concrete in the middle of a lush, green, grassy field is perfectly safe. The rules are different in the middle of a dry desert area. :S The state park service agrees.

RE: Propane Firepit Restrictions - West Coast

It's June 4th and the the State Parks website shows there are no bans on campfires in any Wa. state CG's right now. Alert center It looks like state CG's follow their own guidelines regarding campfires and the county has theirs. What ever the case, we have never been to a Wa state CG where our PP pit wasn't allowed. Of course, there have been times when there was so much smoke in the air that we didn't even wan't to have a fire!

RE: Continental Trailer Tires

Wow, if GY has that little faith in their product it would be crazy to buy them!

RE: Propane Firepit Restrictions - West Coast

Did you look at the RED bar on the chart on the link I posted earlier? According to this site Link, Recreational fires in approved devices in CG's are still allowed. But that looks outdated.. At any rate, we aren't talking about right this minute and every square inch of every state. We're talking generalities. There may have been times when even PP firepits were banned but if there were, they were very rare and the OP's question about being able to use one of them in a (Wa) CG during normal fire bans is in my experience a pretty safe bet. Definitely worth bringing along on his trip.

RE: Continental Trailer Tires

GY endurance are rated for 87 MPH, I've never heard of ANY tire rated for only 62 - maybe you meant 65?

RE: Propane Firepit Restrictions - West Coast

ScottG: That is King county. Parts of Douglas, Chelan and Grant counties are under fire warning. Red flag comes down tonight at 10 hopefully A portable propane fire pit is OK now in all of those and for the 6~7 years I we have been using one, they have never been banned in state CG's. If I'm missing something, plz school me! :)

RE: Propane Firepit Restrictions - West Coast

We are currently in "Red Flag Warning" Propane fire pit use is still acceptable Link

RE: Water Pump Replacement...Looking for hi flow unit

Good point about the build up. The Shurflow 3.0 actually makes for a decent shower in our trailer.

RE: Water Pump Replacement...Looking for hi flow unit

I bought the Seaflo 55 a couple of months ago just to get back to the high flow my old Sensor 5.7 had (RIP). It's junk. Just makes a lot of noise, cavitates and rumbles but the Seaflo doesn't put out any more than the Shurflo 3 gallon per hour (4008) that came with my trailer. It's a total disappointment and has been relegated to being a back-up pump in case the Shurflo quits. When Shurflo comes out with a bigger, 5 chamber pump, I'll buy it.

RE: Anyone had experience with Bluetti lion power stations?

Yeti is in the top three IMO. The Bluetti and Jackery are a better bargain though.

RE: Travel Trailer Brake Problem

Start simple and apply some dielectric grease to the 7-pin connection. Why people do this is beyond comprehension. Dielectric grease, or tune-up grease, is a silicone-based grease that repels moisture and protects electrical connections against corrosion. ... The grease does not conduct electricity, so it shouldn't be applied directly to the mating surfaces (pins and sockets) of an electrical connection Agreed, fix the connection and then if you must, apply that junk. But dielectric grease has never made a connection better. Nothing works better than a clean, dry connection. I made a lot of money fixing avionics that had nothing more wrong with them than some av-tech having slathered that muck on the connections.

RE: Propane Firepit Restrictions - West Coast

In Wa they have always been allowed in State CG's no matter how bad fires are or what the burn-ban situation is. That's why we bought a PP firepit in the first place.

RE: Death Wobble Continues ....

Set caster to upper end of specified range. This would be the proper repair except most vehicles today have non-adjustable Caster and Camber settings. They have Castor adjustment but don't have camber adjustment.

RE: E or F rated tires

Buy "E" Goodyear ENDURANCE in your size. Plenty of capacity for your load. They are US Made with ZERO reported non road hazard claims in the four years on the market. I have them on my Boat trailer towing at 70 for the last three years nearly every day during the Summer. They look great still. They are rated at 75mph. Actually, they're rated for 87 MPH ;) Linkaroonie I've been totally pleased with mine and will get another set when needed. I prefer them to even the Maxxiss I had.

RE: 1979 Lance 400 12v Electrical

I had a 68 or 69 Red Dale of similar electrical design. It had no real place for a battery and no converter or battery charger of any type. Other than a light and an air pump for the water tank, there wasn't any loads like we'd have today. Most of the lighting was supplied by a permanent propane lamp on the wall. If you wan't more, you'll want to install a converter, outlets, lights and any other modern conveniences. As for a battery location, I mounted a second, isolated battery on the truck itself. If you wan't an on-board battery, you may want to check into an AGM type so venting is easier. And you may wan't to revamp the water system while you're in there.

Tank heaters. Down is OFF.

RE: Banff! First time out this year

It's been 27 years since we made that trip but I think it may have been one of the most gorgeous vacations we ever had. Hope you have a fantastic trip! Scott
