RE: It's hot!

I'll corroborate. We live in the inland northwest less than a hundred miles from the Canadian border and we're currently enjoying the 90s with days of triple digits due in the near future. That's unheard of this time of year.

RE: Thor Industries now has $14 billion in backlogged orders

Appears from the posts here, and my recent searching, that the further east you go, the more RVs are available for sale and the cheaper the prices. We headed west from Michigan. Bought in Omaha (long story not related to RV inventories) and saw plenty of RVs on lots out thru Utah, Nevada, Arizona and California, so I don't think it's how far east you are.I've observed similar to Grid Dog. Maybe it's just the northwest. We have RV lots galore, but there's much less inventory than there used to be. I've actually noticed an uptick recently though.

RE: Black tank stench won't go away

If it's at the front, it could also be a bad battery, or even a leaky propane connection.

RE: Holding tanks

I think that 2 gray tanks is often due to plumbing requirements, like the bathroom and kitchen being located far apart. Is that the case for you? I wouldn't be surprised at all to see an incorrect panel installed in an RV either.

RE: 2020 Starcraft Wet Floor Insulation After Towing In Rain

Once you fix the wet, you may want to consider putting corroplast between the frame rails. I did and it helped a lot. I also added mud flaps that extend all the way up, and a long way toward the ground.

RE: Not sure if I have an issue or not...

Nah, it's not that one. It's not a warning light so much as an indicator that the trailer is connected. When I would disconnect, there would temporarily be one like this.

RE: Not sure if I have an issue or not...

That light near the 90MPH should be the Cargo light indicator, and the one near the 50MPH should be the Fog Lights. Yep, I'm feeling pretty brilliant now. :S The fog lights are enabled/disabled by pushing on the knob that controls the lights. Somehow that got pushed, and I didn't realize. How I was able to get the fogs to come on and off by pushing the cargo light button, I have no idea. I could swear it worked, but what the hey. Hopefully by tomorrow, I'll get a chance to connect to the trailer and that will be miraculously fixed too. :B Thanks for all the great feedback!

RE: Not sure if I have an issue or not... "border=0" For Full-Size Image. Well, after a few minutes to actually look at stuff, the fog light "ON" indicator is near the 90MPH on the dial, and behaves as it should. Where as the light that concerns me is near the 50MPH on the dial. The owners manual led me to believe it was the fog light indicator, and it comes on any time any front lights are turned on. What is it? This is the light that used to show when the trailer was plugged in.

Not sure if I have an issue or not...

2015 Ram 1500 Laramie with OEM integrated brake controller. Last weekend was the first tow of the year. In the past I could have sworn that when the trailer was connected, there was a small trailer icon on the dash. Now there's none. Aside from that, everything appears to be working correctly. Braking is good, and all the lights are doing what they're supposed to, and the various trailer settings are still available in the menu. I'm also noticing that the fog light indicator/icon is always on when the lights are on now too.

RE: Need a new TV antenna

I haven't torn into it yet, but it looks like the damaged cable may just connect to the mast base with a boot covering it. Is that correct? Is it just a plain old RG59 cable? My RV is 2004 vintage.

Need a new TV antenna

The old Winegard Sensar went walkabout during the drive home. Doesn't appear to be any damage except for the end of cable. The two square rods are still there, just no antenna. Looking for replacement suggestions. It's been a good antenna, but I wouldn't mind trying something different. TV reception is still important to us, but not as important, so something simpler might be fine. Thoughts?

RE: window next to door

If it's a sticks and tin trailer, it's typically pretty easy. I added a window to the back of my trailer. It was easy to build a frame with weight supporting header without damaging inside or outside walls. I'm an IT guy by profession with no construction or carpentry experience at all. The window has held up solid and leak free for over 14 years.

RE: If you bought your RV on payments from General RV.

Because that's a copy. They signed an original that did NOT say that. It was modified after the fact. Then they received their copy. Who looks at the copies after the fact?

RE: Quad Bike mounted to ladder?

I watch RV reviews on youtube. That ladder flexes every time someone climbs up/down. I think you'd be asking for trouble. At the least, water proof seals could break down where the ladder is attached to the RV. Don't those things come with pretty hefty rear cargo hitches? I think I'd rather fab something to that.

RE: Running Inverter Generator Safely From Pickup

I run a Champion 3400w generator in similar situations routinely. I include a 120VAC clip on fan to circulate the air. It works great. My tonneau is the tri-fold stretched vinyl variety, and has never suffered any heat damage.

RE: If you bought your RV on payments from General RV.

Yes, pretty scary. The youtube videos are pretty convincing to me. I've been window shopping that dealer network, and am now planning to steer clear.

RE: Buy new now or wait until end of summer

Aside from the fear mongering that's been shared, around here in the northwest, the issue is more about what is available on the lots. I know the model I want wont even be on the manufacturing line until January of next year. I have no choice but to wait at least until then.

RE: Onboard Tongue weight

If they tried to prevent driving with an overloaded condition, they would lose sales. One of those nasty 1s or 0s gets out of place and you're stuck where you sit. They don't stop you from driving without a seatbelt.

RE: Laptop Docking station without USB-C?

There are various non USB-C ones out there, but my experience has been less than stellar. They do work, but not reliably. Be prepared for the occasional restart, etc. In fact, Dell does offer a couple.
