Best place to mount my generator?

I am going to buy the predator 3500 generator. wt is 100#. I am thinking of mounting the generator platform over the LPG tanks or on the rear bumper. What is the best location for weight distribution and wiring it to run?

RE: carbon Monoxide alarm going off

I guess the real question you need to be concerned about is do you smell actual combustion; Or is the smell the oils from manufacturing that will burn off after a few hours? All new RV's will stink for a few hours when the propane appliances are first fired up. If you think the water heater is bad, wait until you turn on the furnace. That will stink enough to drive you out of the trailer. When mine was new I opened all the windows and turned the thermostat all the way high and let the furnace run for a few hours. The smell was bad, but it dissipated and never came back. I did this after my smoke alarm went off. Now its the CO2 alarm which is adjacent to the water heater

RE: carbon Monoxide alarm going off

It could actually be CO setting off the alarm. I had the same problem when wind was blowing against the side of the trailer where the water heater was located. There was a small opening around the propane connection and the wiring going into the trailer. Sealed it with duct seal and the problem went away. Most likely the problem. They slap these TT to get Her!

RE: carbon Monoxide alarm going off

CO detectors can and do go bad. Occasionally very early. I had one and the dealer replaced it under warranty. Someone once told me to replace them every 2 years fwiw. Oh, and pineapple soaked in beer is best for dog farts. But I smell Co2

RE: carbon Monoxide alarm going off

Can you smell propane down by the floor? If it is propane, I’d check every connection with soapy water in a spray bottle. I check our detector every spring with a propane torch. Unlit, of course. It’s not propane the light on is carbon monoxide side of alarm

RE: carbon Monoxide alarm going off

Check your batteries voltage when it goes off as it has three detectors...one for low voltage. Battery voltage was 13 amps

RE: carbon Monoxide alarm going off

It would be next to impossible for CO to find its way inside the rig from the water heater. You would need to have a huge hole somewhere in the sidewall, a large gap around the water heater mounting flange itself, or some off the wall condition where its coming in through a window or vent. I would guess a defective alarm as the ones used by the OEMS are the cheapest obtainable. You don't have a farting dog in the rig do you?co2 is coming in thru some opening when I light the heater. Tested it several times. I know it’s the heater

RE: carbon Monoxide alarm going off

I could smell carbon monoxide by the alarm and the light on the co2 side was on. I blew air into the alarm to get it to stop. It only comes on when I run the water heater It is not propane

carbon Monoxide alarm going off

Our first trip w/ our new travel trailer (2 months old) the carbon monoxide alarm goes off when I run the hot water heater on gas. The alarm is located 6" off the floor on the opposite side of where the hot water heater is located. Why is gas coming inside a new trailer? The alarm is a dual alarm for both propane and carbon monoxide. Its obvious that the mfgr has a problem w/ the heater installation that allows CO2 to come inside the tlr. I'm pis#$ off and just venting. 2019 Flagstaff micro lite 21DS

RE: Do airbags help?

The chains are supposed to be tight. How much are you compressing the urethane bushing? Should be about 1/4” or so, if I remember correctly. I raise the tongue and truck with the jack to make it easy to adjust the tension nut. I have about 600# on the tongue and have no problem returning the front end to spec. Do you know the tongue weight? Tongue wt is approx 550 # and I can't get the front end down to spec, I'll try more tension on the chains to see if that helps. I get a fairly smooth towing on smooth roads, but it can bounce on a rough road. Is that normal?

Do airbags help?

I'm pulling a 22 ft TT for the 1st time w/my 2018 F150 2 rear WD. I have a Anderson WDH. Has anyone added air bags to their truck and does it help that much. I have to really tighten the chains to bring the rear end of the truck up so the front end comes down and doesn't float when towing.

RE: Best way to run fridge while not level

if you are a half bubble off you are good to go. but in saying that it is best to be the half bubble off front to back then side to side. the tubes run front to back in the back of the fridge so that is the logical way to be off a half bubble This makes no sense at all as some fridges are mounted along a sidewall of the trailer while in others it's mounted along an end wall.

RE: Murphy bed?

My firm Murphy bed is better than my newer mattress at home. the MB allows for more room on our short TT. and an additional couch to sit on.

RE: Suggestions on what vehicle to pull 18-20' trailer?

I tow a new forest river flagstaff, trailer GVWR is 6500 lb. Tows well w/ my 5,0 V8. I'm sure a F250 would be better, but I don't want to drive a 250 around town for days at a time. I love my 150. Very quiet and smooth ride.

RE: starting to look at trucks

I just started towing w/my f150 5.0L 10 speed and it is easy to keep the rpm's up w/ the 10 speed. Our truck is also a daily driver at home and of course on the road. My TT gvwr is 6500 and I have no problem towing 55 to 60 MPH on long grades and I keep the RPM's up to 3-4K. The engine runs cool w/ the bigger radiator. I get 10.3 towing and 23 w/ out at 75MPH. Love my 1/2 ton for daily driving and that's why I didn't get a rougher riding 3/4 ton.

RE: Having Power Stabilizers Added

I use a a portable drill and socket. Takes 5 minutes to stableze the TT. I sure don't see the need for anything more than that unless you are pure lazy. I owned a DP for 15 years w/ automatic jacks and are absolutely necessary on 35K lb unit, but on a 4K TT not necessary. IMHO

RE: new batteries for trailer

I bought Costco 4-6V deep cycle golf cart batteries for my DP. Paid $89 ea . I replaced 10 yr old Interstates but didn't dry camp. I think the Costco batteries could be replaced twice for the cost of AGM's. My new TT has only 1-12 V deep cycle and I plan to add a second one. I won't be dry camping much still. I haven't had a chance to find where my converter is located yet, but I think it is under the dinette seat. Does anyone know? (Flagstaff micro mini 21DS)
