RE: motorized awnings

Ouch......$3000!! Replaced my fabric awning about 2 years ago due to age/wear and spent maybe $300. Rarely ever use mine, so, I guess if you're doing it quite often, it could be a helper :)

RE: Reflectix on window, long-term?

I had the same "sealant meltdown" on my RV in NY City a few years ago. Very hot and direct sunlight. I stopped using it for that reason.

RE: Anyone using Lithium batteries? Comments?

Thanks! Wish I had known wayyyy back when.....I just know they SUCK even as a starting battery in my Jeep. Have to change under warranty way too many times.

RE: Anyone using Lithium batteries? Comments?

I had two 12v AGM's and are Optima Blue top. Frankly, I've had nothing but trouble with Optima batteries! Has 4 redtop in my Jeep and now had 2 sets of 2 bluetops in my RV (all replaced under warranty). Yes, my 2003 Ford has to change out the charger to handle Lithium as well as chassis charger from alternator to batteries. But, I just want less trouble watching TV on the beach and willing to pay for it. And, a 10-year warranty certainly helps as well. I don't follow current technology like you guys are talking about above....too busy working to spend the research time, but, battleborn has been around and seems to have good reviews. I'll follow up after first beach trip at the end of October!!

RE: Anyone using Lithium batteries? Comments?

Cold temps are not an issue here in Virginia (seldom see even +20 degree days). Yeah, pretty sure I'm going to invest the $$$ and go this route so I can just RELAX on the beach, watch TV, and STOP watching the voltage meter on my cabinet wall :)

Anyone using Lithium batteries? Comments?

Looking at upgrading to Battleborn Lithium batteries with charger/inverter for superior boondocking. Tired of running generator/engine to recharge the 2-Optima blue AGM batteries in use now. According to Battleborn, this will be far superior than what I'm used to seeing in terms of consumption and the daily charging cycle. I use a Dish satellite for TV, lights, furnace, frig, toaster, coffee maker, etc. With their system, I could also run the microwave without using the generator. Anyone out there have first-hand experience with Lithium?

RE: Advice on RV "carport"

I kept the passenger side/main entry to RV 3/4 open sides so that IN the event of a power outage, I could stay in RV running generator and still have good natural lighting coming into the RV so I didn't feel "boxed in" on all sides. Mine is 12' high all the way across with small gable pitch roof above that. I made it 12' inside dimensions wide and yes, it takes a careful driver to get it straight but works for me.

RE: Muffler for Onan generator??

Update: Installed the Roadkill mats on generator access door to RV as well as the drop-panel door to access inside of the generator itself. Also, put mats on top of generator (as per video link above). I also put the mat beneath my dinette seat which is directly above the generator. I'd have to say it was a minimal improvement....yes, a tad bit quieter, but nothing to write home about. As previously mentioned, it's not a super loud unit anyway, but, was worth giving it the ole college try!

RE: Two-wheel down car caddy .... can I tow with rear wheels up?

Ouch.....apparently I can't even use this vehicle as thought. Manual didn't like towing this way (but didn't mention manual transmission at all in the manual, so, guessing it's also not recommended). Ok, thanks, will just wait on the Solara to be fixed.

RE: Two-wheel down car caddy .... can I tow with rear wheels up?

I've got a 1995 Z28 Camaro with 6-speed tranny so I'll just use that and will eliminate damage to my SL500 which is rear-wheel drive. Thanks all!

RE: Two-wheel down car caddy .... can I tow with rear wheels up?

Googled some info, and, doesn't sound like this is a "smart" thing to do unless extreme emergency......will just make other arrangements!

Two-wheel down car caddy .... can I tow with rear wheels up?

Not sure if I could back my Mercedes up on the car caddy backwards since this vehicle is automatic and leave front wheels on pavement? I know I've seen some vehicles on the highway being towed this way, but, obviously don't want to damage anything. My front-wheel drive Solara is unavailable which is what I usually tow. As long as steering is locked, I don't really see a reason I couldn't tow it down the highway this way....but, smarter folks on this board may know if I'm overlooking something. Thanks!

RE: Muffler for Onan generator??

I ordered a pack of these Roadkill mats and will install next week. Can't hurt to give it a try. Might even install one beneath my dinette bench seat which is directly above the running generator. I've got those silver foam insulating mats in my garage and will use on top of the generator as he showed. Thanks for the link, BOB!!!

RE: Muffler for Onan generator??

Haha.....like that answer!! Yes, mine has never really been a noise maker, but my buddy was telling me it might help. YouTube results didn't show any noticeable successes. Thanks all!

Muffler for Onan generator??

Onan 4000 on my rig and not really a noise issue, but just wondering if anyone has attached a muffler or spark arrestor to the tailpipe? If so, did it seem to be much quieter? Planning on several weeklong trips to the island and may be using it for a/c in September during the daytime and possibly overnight if no breeze. I'm asking because a friend has a truck camper is was told to attach a Cummins spark arrestor and that would drop the noise levels.

RE: Near perfect 2001 Jayco Eagle

The website was etrailer.com for the replacement LED lights and rear tail lights! Super bright lights and good prices! Good luck.

RE: Near perfect 2001 Jayco Eagle

Someone on this site posted the LED website that I used and didn't save it for some reason. Search the site or just post up the topic and I'm sure you'll get that link!

RE: Near perfect 2001 Jayco Eagle

I would put the LED marker lights and rear tail light/backup lights on your rig. Tremendous change in brightness especially backing up! I also put eternal bond tape around each marker hole, cut a small slit to pass electric wire through, then sealed lens with flexible caulk. That way, if a lens cracks, the tape behind should stop most of the water from pushing through due to wind/pressure. Took about 3 hours to do everything and a big improvement.

RE: Near perfect 2001 Jayco Eagle

Wow!!!! Even better....I think you STOLE that RV and will promptly report it to the local police :) :) Great for you!!

RE: Near perfect 2001 Jayco Eagle

Now that is quite a find indeed!!!! Those are the types of vehicles I like to find; older year but limited use. If you don't mind sharing, the purchase price would be appreciated!! Just wondering how great a deal you got on the "one of a kind" RV find! :)
