RE: How is this for a power system? Solar vs battery balance?

Those trojan Li batteries look to be superior to Battleborn. With constant 300 amp discharge and I think 100 amp charge rate. I think Battleborn are 50 amp charge rate and 100 amp discharge. That huge discharge rate could be handy with the high surge rate of the micro and the truma. I really like the battery status indicator. I wonder how that works and how accurate it is. Driving down the road with that 100 amp charge rate you would charge your batteries in no time. JMHO

RE: Finally......a good way to carry extra gas (mod)!

I would say that the location of that tank is higher than most rear end collisions with modern vehicles. It is not going to blow up like ten sticks of dynamite. If a gallon of gas was turned to a vapor at just the right mixture, then maybe. It certainly could cause a fire, if impacted and then a source of ignition was there. There is risk in lots of things we do, Like walking across the street or driving a RV.

RE: Finally......a good way to carry extra gas (mod)!

I like it but I would lower it so the weight of gas tank is on the bumper. Possible just a small inch thick rubber spacer that could be removed when opening the door. On second thought you could just get a spacer that will work with your present setup. JMHO.

RE: 32 ft class c

It is indeed a very valid point, the more bodies the more AC you will need. I had a 27 foot Class C. Even that could have used a second AC in weather over 90 degrees and a crew of children and adults. If you need more room I would not worry about the extra length. It will make it a little more difficult in some situations. But not many. JMHO

RE: Trailer Roof- Man am I sore!

I did the same thing to my TC in my signature. It was a lot of work. I only had one spot where some of the tape came up after several years. It was on the leading edge of the cabover and I am sure it was my fault for not preparing it well enough. The rest is as solid as a rock. That eternabond is great stuff. All though I also have great faith in self leveling dicor. JMHO

RE: Another Oldie Not Mine

Gotta say I disagree...not worth $6,500...maybe $2500. Had no options to be used without 120V power. Unless you have an outlet in your back pocket, all it is is a tent on wheels. I would have to agree with this

RE: Looking for advice

Diesels are super fun to tow with. If you have plenty of money buy one you will not regret it. I loved pulling with my diesels. But they have a much more complex everything! If you have plenty and can take that diesel to the shop and not whence that is what I would go with. If could care less that diesel is a third more costly than gas. Then go with it. If you also could care less when the warranty runs out, go with it. But if you can't buy a gasser. JMHO.

RE: AGM Battery upgrade, bigger batteries too

I switched to agm 3 years ago for some of the same reasons. So far so good.

RE: Ms Tioga and George

A interview with Tioga George. I do believe. Pretty sure this is Tioga George a couple of years ago. I have followed him some. This is kinda cool.

RE: Different generator question?

I have had both types on board and separate. I prefer my honda 3000 on a cargo rack, either in my front receiver of my pickup or the rear receiver of the 5th wheel. I have found on board which I have had two to be loud and they vibrate the rig. A mobile generator can moved away from the rig in a long term situation. I would definitely purchase the quietest generator possible as that is the most important feature of all. Now most certainly those with extremely high end rigs will have quiet well insulated premium generators which are on board but those are in a different league than most of us. :) JMHO

RE: Do you put in black tank treatment pod prior to storage?

Couple gallons of water during the non freezing season and now and then a pod. Before winter I make sure it is really flushed out good and leave it empty and valves open. I don't ever leave it empty in the camping fishing season. 80 percent of the time I don't use any treatment. I never heard of one of these before today, but if you leave the valves open, there are these things. Critters? Anyway-- https://www.amazon.com/Valterra-T1024-4VP-Vented-Waste-Valve/dp/B001VDBNCO Maybe I should consider this. Sometimes I find lots of mouse poop in the sinks!

RE: High wind and the truck camper

No issue whatsoever if not driving. If you were driving I think you would still be fine. I know I am fine with my rig. For me gusts well over 40 while driving is when it starts to really be a noticeable problem. Where I might start thinking of other options, like maybe I should pull over and wait a bit. Sitting parked I would think it would take 60 plus mph winds to get scary. I have been in those winds before parked and things do rock around a bit. Of course in that case I would park with the nose facing the wind. I do a lot of driving on I-80 on the plains and 25 to 30 mph side winds are very, very common. But I honestly don't notice the wind until it is over 20 mph. JMHO

RE: Is this a good Class C?

The miles seem fine to me.
