RE: Advice for newbies

Making the transition from boats to RVs is very simple. Systems are far more accessible & basic. Costs are far far less. Accomodation is much more plentyful, easier to find & cheaper. Have fun.

RE: British Columbia, Canada

If you are looking for something much more challenging do hwy 99 out of Squamish. As far as Whistler is kiddies stuff. Then the mountain driving begins.

RE: How High???

Stock spec is 12'6". Slightly taller tires & the Correct Track system, adds a few inches. As long as I see 12'10" or higher I don't sweat it. Less than 12'6" is very seldom seen unless you want cross some covered bridges. Mostly if you see semis going the other way, you are safe.

RE: RV sales are slipping

We were in the Goshen, IN. earlier this summer. Could not believe how many units were sitting in fields with grass growing up around them.

RE: Hershey Pa rv show

Been to it a few times. Good to go kick some tires & see stuff that you don't really need. Something would have to be really special to make me even think about selling my Alpenlite. We did Hershey twice before buying mainly to have a look see. If getting close to buying make a list of the the must haves & be brutal. Ours needed to have a large galley. An island or a "J" shape with lots of counter space. It also had to have lots of freshwater capacity. Nothing less than 80gal would be acceptable. It also had to be less than 36' LOA. Parameters set there was no time wasted looking at units that did not meet our specs. Buying a mistake, even at a 'great' price is expensive.

RE: How do you store your power supply extension cord

Been using an oval laundry basket almost from the beginning. No need to take all of the cable out to use it. The cable is coiled trailer end in the basket first leaving enough out to plug into the trailer. This way only what is needed to reach the shore power post needs to be pulled out of the basket. Very handy if you are a traveller & only spend a few nights at any spot.

RE: Replaced my house batteries...

Enjoy the AGMs. Replaced the 2 useless group 24s wet after only 2 years. In went a single Lifeline AGM 4D. Wish I had room for a 8D. Got 9 seasons out of that battery. Zero tending each year November to April other than complete disconnect. Preferred the simplicity of only 2 terminals on the 4D rather than tethering 2 smaller batterys together. Maintenance?? What is that?

RE: Those with auto leveling systems

Can't beat the Pineboard levelling system. Never fails. If it cracks, it becomes firewood.

RE: Level on sloped campsites. How? Unique to 5er's

Lifting the front is a whole lot easier than lowering it to get level. Put the extensions out as far as possible & lift away till level or you run out of leg. Lowering you need to estimate how much you need to lower once off the truck by running the leg out without much extension yet still have enough to get off the truck. The longer the 5er the more difficult this game is but you learn with experience.

RE: Water Pump

Well, it is not going to defy gravity & come up out of the tank. Some might drain out of 'the house' so be prepared.

RE: LED running lights

Seems to me I have the 1157 base. Can't check right now. Trailer is in MD. I am in Bermuda so it will have to wait a few weeks.

RE: LED running lights

Polarity eh? OK, will try that. The object of the exercise is to get somewhat brighter lights. Common red lenses that are sort of dark. Situation made worse when coated with road dirt. Always trying to upgrade this & that. This was supposed to be a dead easy job till Murphy showed up to help.

LED running lights

So after many months of hunting for a roundtooit, I finally found one & went & bought LED bulbs for the trailer brake & reversing lights to replace the OEMs. They don't work. Yes, replacement part numbers match. We were under time pressure so out came the LEDs & back in went the originals. A battle to be fought another day. Any ideas? Got about $60 worth of LEDs & I want to use them.

RE: Grrrrr. Brake controller.

Don't know how one goes about adjusting self adjusting brakes. Don't have a clamp on amp meter. Might need to add one of those to my arsenal of 'weapons'. Chafe inside an axle seems unlikely, though I did do some wire jiggling at each axle.

RE: Slide out

Assuming that you have a Lippert framed unit. Look underneath, Adjustments can be made & are easy to do. You need to have a look & figure out what has what effect on the slide. If all is good when it is out & all is good when it is in I would not sweat it much. Just be sure that nothing has come loose or a nut has not gone missing.

Grrrrr. Brake controller.

I have been living with underperforming trailer brakes for quite some time. Driving habits have been extra cautious to compensate for them. The brakes are the self adjusting type. Had them professionally service last fall which included shoe checks & wiring checks at each wheel. Redid a couple a few weeks ago & made sure there was no chafe of wires. They do work, but only slightly, at the most responsive settings. Could the problem be with a faulty controller itself? It seems to display random numbers when brakes are applied.

RE: Tips for Traveling with Other Couples

Traveling with others on a boat is much more intense than doing a RV trip. There is no getting off & going for a walk on a boat unless marina hopping. Did a month long boat trip with good friends as guests on their boat. Ft Lauderdale to Georgetown in the Exumas. All on the hook nights. Still close friends however we are boaters too so familiar with the lifestyle. RVs are much easier. Need some separation time? Go in your own & close the door or go for a walk.

RE: Mat rant

Why do you care? Life is short enjoy it and stop worrying about what others do when they camp... The point what others do to the site affects the next people to use it. I believe having consideration for the next people & those after is the issue.

RE: Those with 50 amp 5er's

Thanks everyone. I was on the fence about one but with the replies I'll make me a 30ft.I have access to all the cord I need 6/4 600v SOOW. That's the way. Made my own too. Cut a bad RV end fitting off & put a female fitting on. Why throw good cable away?

RE: Those with 50 amp 5er's

Always nice to be prepared. I made a 50 amp extension. Also have a 30 amp extension. Have had situations where both were needed. Over 100' of shore power line.
