RE: Air Bag Pressure

I added air bags to a 2500HD when I got a lance camper. The specs say it was 2500 pounds so I would put 50 psi in them. I seem to remember the spec sheet said 1 psi for every 50 pounds. Now I have a small TT and I use 20 to keep it level. I quit using the load leveler bars as they are a pain. No problems so far and it has worked for 10 years.

RE: Towing

In calif, you can tow a trailer behind a fifth wheelI as it is an extension of the truck. I think you need a class a license. I did see a guy doing the same as you saw and I figured he would not get far but I noticed his Texas plates and figured he is lucky.

RE: How to get an RV up a steep drive way

My son has similar issues and we took two 12x2x6’s and put a piece of 4x4 in the middle to smother the incline. He stores them on the side of the house but only brings the trailer home for loading an unloading before and after a trip. Permanent storage is at his brothers house as ccr’s don’t like rv’s in driveways.

RE: Soot on Dinghy

I have seen plexiglas panels on the tow bar and mounted to the front bumper. A piece of Masonite cut to size would be a cheap and possible fix. The vacuum behind the tow vehicle maybe pull the soot into the front of your GC. Cummins sure do belch a lot out when you punch it.

Sounds like a good plan, or upgrade both.

RE: Dump Station Etiquette???

Yep, long line behind, dump and go. If there is noone then get out the hose and shove it down the toilet till half full and dump again. Another quick rinse if you don't have a sani wash is to lift up the sewer hose and put water in it for awhile and then lower it down to the dump hole. If there is a big line I dump and pull out and stop at a wide spot and add a couple gallons or until I get tired of hold the flush valve on the toilet so it will slosh around on the way home. It will get the toilet paper off the sensors and dump when you can or on the next trip first thing when checking in.

Is the .99 fee one time or per month?

RE: Power pedestal wiring question

Turning of the 30 and checking the 20 will tell you whether the 20 is fed by the 30. I am assuming both breakers are connected to a buss bar and are independent of each other. Either way it does not indicate the available amps from the main breaker. If you pull more than 30 from both 30 and 20 and the main breaker, wherever that is, trips then the pedestal is fed by a 30. If you pull 25 thru the 30 and 12 thru the 20 and no problems, the main is a 40 or 50. So far I have had no problems from utilizing both recepticles.

RE: Power pedestal wiring question

15/20 amp are required to be GFCI protected. In old campgrounds one 120 volt circuit was brought to pedestal. One breaker for 15/20 amp receptacle nd one breaker for 30 amp receptacle. Good place for finding low voltage! Yes, most of the campgrounds we frequent are old but did they feed this pedestal with 30 amp or 50 amp?

RE: Power pedestal wiring question

Here is two scenarios I have run into. Scenario 1: when booking reservations at Lake San Antonio Ca for thanksgiving, I noticed the 5 sites I wanted showed they were without power. I booked the next 5 sites and checked periodically to see if they had fixed the power as I wanted those sites. Never fixed. When we were camping I waved down the campground host and asked what was the holdup in repairing the problem. It had been 5 months. He said there was an issue in the wiring feeding those sites and no-one has figured out what to do. Obviously this campground is wired in a daisy chain fashion with 5 site per circuit. Scenario 2: 2 buddies and I were camping at Pinnacles National Park out side of King City, Ca . We were doing diner at 1 trailer in 100 degree heat so the AC was going plus other items and out goes the power. I went next door and checked mine and it was working. Checked the other side and his was working. #0 amp was not tripped. Waved down the campground host and he said hold on. Back he came and said you should be good to go, which we were. He said the breaker in the main is weak so he just reset it. Asked him why he doesn't replace the breaker and he said he has reported it to the electrician. In this case, each site is a home run to the main panel Got off track there. I am guessing that a power pedestal that has a 30 amp and a 20 amp outlet has both breakers connected to a buss bar which is serviced by a 30 amp main. If was serviced by a 50 amp main then I would be fine utilizing both outlets but that seems to be unlikely. A peak into the main would answer the question.. Edit: I think I was typing while others were posting. Thanks for the input.

Power pedestal wiring question

When camping in our travel trailer, we usually camp at spots that have a power pedestal that has both 30 amp outlet as well as a 20 amp GFCI protected outlet net to it. If I plug the trailer into the 30 amp and run an extension cord from the 20 amp outlet for coffee maker and ice machine, do I have 50 amps total or is the wiring in the pedestal for the 20 amp through the 30 amp breaker? Lets say coffee maker pulling 13 amps and micro in the trailer pull 10-12 amps along with a electric fry pan at say 12 amps, will it trip the 30 amp breaker or just the twenty? Not sure if this makes sense. I kinda figure they have a 50 amp main at the main distribution hub which goes to each site and then split to 20-30 amp breakers. Sounds to good to be true.

RE: Done trying to buy from Camping World

I get the main CW magazine to see what’s available. Sometimes I buy something. Mainly use it when camping with friends and someone asked about a price of an item. They seem to have a lot of stuff. When I have ordered items, they have always come as expected. No issues here.
