RE: Solar Panel Venting

I love to find new uses for that corrugated plastic. And this sounds like a great one. Unrelated to that, but I've ended up trapping water more than once on my roof with no ill effects even after years. Would reflectix work?

RE: Hope you travel alone?!!!!

Lol, just tell the owner to pump up the tires and he'll be fine. 32psi, hahaha, that's what I run in the winter for better traction. If that sticker doesn't prove to the weight cops that the payload stickers are totally useless, nothing will. Too bad in reality it'll have them screaming see we told you, you should have bought a 1 ton!Totally agree! It's too bad we didn't get to see the other sticker too.

RE: Tow Vehicle Tire Pressure

It REALLY sucks when heavy duty truck owners respond with heavy duty specific info, when they should know that this is NOT about a heavy duty tow vehicle. In the past, when I've run D & E rated tires on my half ton pickups, I ran them near the OEM recommendations (35 - 40 PSI) for daily driving, and they performed fine. I found that no more than 55 PSI was ever needed for even the heaviest loading (well above GVWR). Now, I've seen the light, and run the wimpy P rated tires, and just air them to max when towing. Otherwise they're at the OEM recommendation.

RE: Problem Removing the AC Shroud

Have you tried lightly tapping on the end of the screwdriver with a hammer while you're applying twist? That has worked for me in a few scenarios. When I removed my shroud last year, it was similar, even though it has been trouble free in the past. Dunno what caused it, and it went back together fine. Actually, I think I may have ended up using my Ryobi One Plus impact wrench to remove them.

RE: Roof freckles

I think the black streaks are actually the white coating washing off the roof, leaving the black spots. I fixed the issue two ways. I used a product called RainKap that diverts any runoff away from the sides of your RV (way superior to the gutter spouts IMHO), and I recoated the roof with Hengs, which has stayed nice and white with no black soot spots. It also had the side benefit of cooling down the RV significantly. Unfortunately, it looks like the RainKap product is no longer made.

RE: Truck Caps

I have soft folding tonneau now which works well, as it's easy to install and remove. I had fiberglass cab high canopies/toppers on my last two trucks with roof rails that made it easy to add/remove racks for ladders, canoes, etc. That way the trucks still fit in the garage. As long as you have an easy way to load and remove the topper, it's an awesome addition. I miss having one and am looking hard at the ARE brand right now.

RE: how to tell if i should re-coat my roof ?

I re-coated my 14 year old roof with Hengs. It's in its second season now and still looks good. The original roof had chalked off most of the white in many places and was extremely hot to walk on during the re-coating process. I also noted that the trailer stays soooo much cooler now too.

Live plants on board?

Does anybody bring along any actual live greenery on their trips? I would love to keep a plant or two in the trailer while traveling, but am not sure just how well they would handle the jostling, bouncing and temperature extremes that can happen in a trailer.

RE: Ford 7.3L gas power numbers

Sounds like the 6.2 will still be available. The 7.3 will likely be very capable and get similar mileage to the current engines. I'm not a fan of the envelope that will be wrapped around these, though it's miles ahead of that Chevy.

RE: Time to kill the Cat

I'm sure they rolled their eyes too. After they admired your deezul of course. And now, like me, they know all about the common courtesies of the dry side.

RE: Time to kill the Cat

Brilliant! :R That's one of the main reasons my a/c is always set to recirculate the cabin air.

RE: 1st time boondocking and could not get our AC to work

Does your water heater run on electric? If so, make sure it's changed over to propane only. A hard start capacitor helped my old Yamaha 2800i generator with running my 13.5BTU air conditioner. My newer Champion 3400 barely notices when starting and running that same A/C with the hard start capacitor (SPP6E). If that doesn't fix what's ailing it, I think you might have some kind of electrical issue.

RE: Best place to mount my generator?

I added a platform on the tongue above the batteries and propane. The platform itself was 65 lbs and my Champion 3400 generator is a little over 110 lbs. My tongue weight was already about 800 - 850 lbs. The combined total was approaching max tongue weight, and in my case, max trailer weight. Also, it seemed obvious that the generator would be louder up there, and more importantly would attract more attention. I even spent another $150 on theft proofing it, before deciding it would be simpler and less stressful if I left it in the bed of the truck. Expensive lesson for me. YMMV

RE: solar

I acquired two free 75 watt panels over a decade ago. Combined with a (not so free) MPPT controller, they've been more than enough for our various excursions ever since. We always camp in at least partial shade, and still can watch a movie or two at night, along with charging phones, running the water pump, etc., etc., and still the (two 6v) batteries are usually close to topped off before the next night.

RE: Turnouts

Yes, it would be awesome if they would post signs at at least every other turn out. Many times I would have gotten out of the way if the opportunity didn't keep flying by.

RE: Anything to know using OEM brake controller v. aftermarket?

Nothing really to know or do differently. The brake controller settings are pretty straight forward. I LOVE my OEM brake controller. It's light years ahead of the Prodigy I used in the past. Operation is very smooth.

RE: AM Radio is dead

rk911, the first sign is similar to what I'm talking about, except this was digital signage. Maybe when I drove by, I simply didn't crank the volume high enough.
