RE: intermittent brakes

Then you should look at the wire from the breakaway to the conection for the harness. Your almost there.

RE: intermittent brakes

Pull the breakaway and check to see if the magnet has power. Use something metal. You did check and clean the grounds I belive. Did you ever check the tv wiring? Just to rule it out? I know the whole thing is a pita.

RE: Out of touch with reality

I bought a new trailer in December for 30% off MSRP (from the manufacturer, not dealer), there are still deals to be had if you're willing to look around. That's said in general this market is insane, a KZ 181BH like the one I bought for $12,500 4.5 years ago is currently listed at the same dealership for just under $18k. That's $1,000 per foot or $150 per SQ foot, 50% more than the 2019 average cost for home construction! Ikr, i am selling my jeep next week for 2k more then what i bought it for 6 years ago. Its a 2014, low miles, but to me that it went up in value is crazy. I did think about selling the KZ also. But i have disney trip in november , so i will keep it for a while. Dont want to cut off the nose to spite the face as they say.

RE: Out of touch with reality

Here in central NC, west of Raleigh on 64, there are 2 dealers about 20 mi apart that are full of new RVs. Mostly trailers. Up I-95 north of Richmond, VA there are tons of new units on both sides of the highway. Shortage? Well that depends, if they are selling for less then they have too many. If they have a shortage they will sell for more. Supply and demand and all that. Did you ask about them? I have heard from many people that the ones on the lots are mostly spoked for. That is they are allready sold. Waiting for pick ups and or last minute installation of options. Plus the price of everything now has skyrocketed. So maybe the price is due to that, but i see the prices way over say a 10 percent uptick in inflation. But who really knows, all we know is that it is more $$$$. And what i described may be geographically dependent. So what i see and here may or may not be true in your area.

RE: Blackstone Griddle

I do the same the the 17 inch. No bag, I put a strap around it to keep it together and usally keep the scraper/ water bottle on the inside of it. After a year or so its fine.

RE: Out of touch with reality

Lol, you be suprised at the cost of new also, if you can get one. The reality is stuff is expensive now, especially campers. If you wait a year or so, it will go back to normal, i hope!

RE: Triple bunk Travel trailer under 36'

Make sure the tanks are empty and don't overload the bed. In my opinion, this is a bad recommendation. If you have to travel with limited or no fluids in your trailer, then you have the wrong trailer or wrong truck. You should be able to haul your trailer with the tanks all full. With very limited options to camp in a campsite with full services like dump and water, you often have to boondock if you want to go camping. If you boondock, you have to start with a full tank of water, that tank will be mostly empty on the way home but then the grey and black are full - or mostly full. We have had to fill 5 gallon jugs and add fresh water to get through a few day boondocking trip, for showers, etc. The trip home I have a very heavy trailer, full tanks, typically some water still in the fresh tank. When boondocking, your not going to have services near by. You might have to drive over a pass, large hill, or miles to the nearest services. Do you want to have your setup overloaded? Best to consider the real full weights then make a decision based on that. Plan ahead, not the opposite. I'm all for planning ahead and being thoughtful about weights. That said, we are in our 12th season of camping as a family and have never one boondocked. What might seem 'necessary' to some is never on the radar for another. We all do this differently, and our plans and expectations should match our particular usage. You are very lucky, or retired. I booked my upcoming memorial weekend trip over almost 9 months ago and got the last site with power and services. If I don't boondock, I won't get very many camp trips in in the summer or can only go mid week. I'm sure there are sites, but maybe not at a place I want to go. Many campgrounds that have services, aren't what I consider camping. I was in a hotel this week in Oregon, the KOA next to the hotel had a industrial lot on one side and an apartment complex on the other. It had some nice trees and grass, but not what I would call camping. Oh, it was mostly full. I could look right in to the sites from my hotel window... He might net be eaither. Just set a reminder to book when the window for the dates you want open. Yea, youn have to nmaybe change how you do book trips. But the technology can help a bit. I split my stays with camping resorts and state parks. Almost always have ellectric hook ups. Besides, boondocking isnt really avalable where i live. So, as he said, its how you camp and everyone does it diffret.

RE: Delaware Seashore State Park Availability

How is it there? Going in the summer for a week? Any good things to not miss?

RE: intermittent brakes

Might as well replace the old breakaway switch while you at it. In for a penny in for a pound.

RE: Water pump not pumping water

Yup, as they said, air is getting into the system from somewhere.

RE: NADA guides price change

A brief observation regarding inventory (new inventory) on dealer's lots. We just returned from a trip that took us north to Louisville, Cincinnati, Columbus, Indianapolis, and Kansas City. We passed at least 15 RV dealerships along the way, maybe more, and EVERY dealer had TONS of inventory. FULL lots. So where are these shortages we're hearing of? Trust me when I say the bubble is going to burst -- who knows how soon -- and those overpaying now are going to be stuck, especially if they've financed. From what im hearing is that the new units on all those lots are sold allready. So there just waiting on pick up or dealership upgrades. This may or may not be the case by you.

RE: Driving people to boondock by calling themselves a "Resort"

From my experience, over here , if they have a pool it has a good chance to have resort in the name.

RE: intermittent brakes

It was a nice catch also, could have been bad. Good thing you didnt need the knowlage of running 2 million wires over your lifetime to fix it. Unlike the people that put it in like that.

RE: intermittent brakes

Thats not good , something rubbed the insulation off those. You could shrink wrap them, but ypu need to find what rubbed on them and how to stop it first.

RE: intermittent brakes

I had the same problem on mine, except it only happened when i was going down the road. After a week or so of looking for it i replaced the all the wiring. That worked. And was much easier then chasing the problem around. I was getting a low voltage signal intermittently when towing.

RE: carbon monoxide detector for 2014 raptor toybox

If just a co detecter and not the gas detecter. I would get a new sealed 10 year one.

RE: Portable Camping Stove Design Issue

Is the outside low or high pressure? What does the fitting look like, quick connect or screw on?
